We were inspired by the UIs of traditional retro games such as: Pacman and Donkey Kong! There were also multiple Pinterest boards which helped to inspire our colour palette. We wanted our website to be one that immediately drew attention to the design and consequently the premise of our website.
What it does
Our website encourages relieves users of the typical intimidation that comes with exploring the tech world. It provides information on career paths and and shows the many inspirational tech trailblazers. It also shows the journeys of us, the creators, in order to show users that it is normal to not know everything and we all start somewhere.
How we built it
We used HTML, CSS and JS.
Challenges we ran into
The animated background on the home page took us a while to correct especially as it was interfering with elements but we did it in the end!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very proud of the UX design and the hover features. We are also proud that we were able to complete this website in such a small space of time without all going our separate ways.
What we learned
We learnt how to accurately position elements for any device and have, overall, become much more confident in our coding abilities.
What's next for Hello World
We hope to incorporate an actual coding game into our game-themed website. This will add huge improvements to the UX.
