In previous years, the Gates Foundation had released a simple letter, outlining their annual accomplishments. For 2017, we were tasked with creating a website to showcase their achievements from the last twelve months.

The client wanted us to create an interactive site where users could get a high-level glimpse, as well as deeper dive. After exploring various models, this main goal informed our decision to use the fanning blade UX model.

Headlines from each blade, call out the key takeaway from each focus area.

The blade design allows users to see the content at a glance, and dive deeper into specific areas.

Each of the pages outlines the accomplishments of their respective program areas. There were six areas total.
