Yerp stands for Youth Engagement Resources Project and it is a site designed to provide information and guidance to young people wanting to make change in their lives/community or older people wanting to involve and encourage young people.
Yerp is supported by the Youth Affairs Council of Victoria (YACVic) and the Victorian Government.
I designed this website to respond and reformat when viewed on mobile devices for a comfortable user experience. The site uses a clean generously sized layout with a pastel colour palette, simple navigational elements and playful icons representative of each topic.
The header of the homepage features a slideshow with snippets from various articles, allowing the viewer to go straight into reading an article, or otherwise scroll down to the various article topics.
The two categories stemming from each topic, ‘for young people’ and ‘involve young people’, sit side by side with a shared icon and heading, hinting at the collaboration between the two audiences.
Fun animated GIFs are included at the top and bottom of each article page. Also at the end of each article is a link suggesting a related piece for the viewer to read, enhancing ease of reading and the time spent on the site.
I designed this website at Liquorice Studio: liquorice.com.au
It is with their generous permission I include this project on my site.
