National Center for Supercomputing Applications Visual Analytics Website
UX/ UI Design and Research
NCSA Visual Analytics team is a group of designers, developers, researchers, writers, and data enthusiasts who like to tackle complex, unique problems. They work with domain experts who want to explore novel solutions to interesting questions and with healthcare professionals to redesign the patient data pipeline, with farming advocates to build interfaces to help farmers calculate land costs, and with scientists to build tools to visualize genomes, cells, and virus outbreaks. To show their current and past projects and publications I create this website that is within the University of Illinois Urbana- Champaigns branding, but creates a much more user friendly and effortless expereinces for user wanting to find out more about what the Visual Analytics team does.
The NCSA Visual Analytics team was looking for a User interface designer to work with them to improve their current website. They wanted to show case their past and current projects along with their publications. Though the work NCSA VA does complex scientific work they needed their website to be usable to the common person.
