Varea Media is an independent media company in Houston that uses their knowledge of the digital landscape to find eco-friendly solutions to meet various business objectives. The team was seeking to build an online network to share news on clean energy, sustainability, and environmental well-being, both in your local community and worldwide.

The first step was building a proof of concept by creating a clickable mobile protoype for the team to test and get a full understanding of the feature specifications. We got a feel for the balance between curated content and interaction.

Early design concepts explored the relationship between content and filter/map interactions.

The design solution we developed towed the line between utilitarian and editorial, making orienting yourself with the map easy while establishing an immersive article reading experience.

The grid structure was designed to be flexible enough to build an engaging layout with varied types of content: whether it be user-generated or editiorial.
