Center for Urban Pedagogy UI Concept
Design as protest
The Center for Urban Pedagogy (CUP) is a nonprofit that uses the power of design and art to increase meaningful civic engagement. Drawing inspiration from its design challenges, I aimed to create a single-page interactive explanation of a pressing social justice issue: gender justice.
My role: UI, Content
The vignettes move through the realm of the home, workplace, and world at large. They demonstrate that gender-based abuse–physical violence, physiological abuse, and other manifestations of gender inequality–are much more prevalent than one would like to think.
Throughout the page, users can move the stories around to reveal alarming stats from organizations like Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and International Labor Organization. As the stories share personal accounts of abuse, the stats educate users on the reality of abuse on a grander scale.
Coupled with the stories and stats, each card highlights an organization that serves victims and survivors of abuse. Resources include national hotlines, social media, as well as resources for specific marginalized groups like women of color and the LGBTQ community.
Responsive and Scalable
The page is responsive and interactive across multiple devices, encouraging users to drag, reveal, and navigate experiences that women may encounter in the world today. With the card layout, new issues can easily be added in future iterations to create an even more immersive experience.
