Sign is an academic project where we were to design and build a website with a creative experience element. As an aspiring UX designer, I am motivated by not only design that is intuitive but design that promotes internet inclusivity. While brainstorming ideas for this project I couldn't shake the idea of designing a tool that promotes communication. As I began researching, I was unable to find a simple translation service for American Sign Language and the beginnings of the website, Sign, was created.

Using the search box, a user can type in any word and the website will reveal the word using fingerspelling in ASL.

From the beginning, Sign was meant to be a simple translating service, utilizing clear user interface design to create a basic introduction for users to the world of American Sign Language. Beginning with a design brief, I mapped out my inspirations and most basic user needs to create this streamlined service.

With the user paths planned, I wanted to convey the simplicity of the website's purpose into its interface design. From here I created wireframes to illustrate the user two step interactive process.

Style tiles and design iterations followed. Motivated to keep communication at the forefront the page content stayed minimal throughout the design process.

The deliverables for this project were a fully functioning site, which you are welcome to visit here 

 

Once I had landed (pun intended) on a design for the landing page, as well as the approach for the photo editing, sign was created and currently publicly used as a translating tool for early learners of American Sign Language.
