about

Forest-Network is an independent group of young creators from Vorarlberg. Through my move to Vienna I got to know Niklas Schwärzler, who is part of Forest. Due to the fact that I'm really passionate about web design we came to the conclusion that Forest needs a new website.

details

The main objective was to keep the texts short and let images, videos and headings speak for themselves. The landing page background is a video, which shows Forest at work. The used typefaces are Merriweather Sans and Merriweather Serif, because these typefaces have a large x-height they are perfect for websites. The color palette is derived from the Forest Logo plus some grey shades and tints.

learnings

In this project I learned a lot about image and video compression. The landing page is developed by myself, so I also learned some interesting things about frontend-development. For me as a designer it's crucial to understand how a website works.
