Sustainability for Social Good
We were heavily inspired to create something simple that everyone could use, to orient themselves to make more sustainable lifestyle choices. A quote/suggestion is displayed on the left hand side under our logo. This extension is intended to be a Google Chrome Extension for all to use, especially those who want to try being more sustainable and just need some suggestions on how to do so when opening a new tab.
Time and Location Aspect
Time-adjusted Ambient Lighting
There is a night filter applied between the hours of 8PM to 8AM, which accommodates to the user's screen. The night mode dims/brightens as each hour passes, so at night, users' screens are darker. This helps limit bright screen exposure as well as increases the emphasis on the time and quote (since the text is white).
Exploring Linked Items
The visuals (illustrations) are also linked to the quotes and search terms. The logo shows two infinity symbols linked against a green background, which symbolizes the green choices we make and how they are linked to our environments. The colors we chose are ambient, analogous, and green, which we hope to induce a sense of calm and serenity. The typography we chose have a serious aspect as well as a more playful one, juxtaposed to provide visual interest while still retaining readability.
