after photographing the trains on their actual scale tracks, i created some doodles to contrast with the realistic photographs. the drawings bring in the whimsy and quirky feeling that i intended for the feel of my collection website.

next for information architecture, time to construct a website around a collection of items. i’ve got my hands on some of my dad’s model train collection. i sat down with him and wrote out some facts for each train.
first project in information architecture is to redevelop the website for a newspaper. i have chosen to work on my hometown’s local paper, the examiner.
moving forward i worked on idea 1 to create medium-fidelity digital wireframes
for the design phase i will be adding in all content and flushing out the bar graph/infographic navigation bar on the home screen.
