Typography was a key aspect of the project, and I dedicated a significant amount of time to perfecting it in both the titles and body copy. After numerous attempts, I ultimately settled on Pacifico as the final typeface. Experimenting with layering and color added the finishing touch to the design.
To bring the storytelling aspect to life, I chose to create a single-page website that would feel like a journey through different sections, like chapters in a book. I used colour blocking and titles to guide the viewer through the story, and I am pleased with the immersive effect it created.

In hindsight, I would have liked to add some advanced animations, such as making Sherlock Holmes walk across the street and enter the house in the 221b Baker Street section. I also would have liked to make my "short stories" graph interactive, but I was unable to find online resources to help me with that aspect. These are skills I hope to develop in the future. Overall, this project was a joy to work on during after a difficult year at university.
