The UK Energy Landscape
Challenge: The world’s energy landscape is constantly evolving, as conflicting reports on fossil fuels and green alternatives dominate the news cycle. We wanted to communicate how the UK’s energy sector operates and how far along we are with finding viable alternatives to fossil fuels.
Solution: We decided to build an interactive document to look at the various ways that the UK gets its energy. It’s a broad subject with an elaborate system of connecting parts, but the majority of people understandably only have a top-level knowledge of what powers the technology that we all rely on. Using the layered hierarchy of an interactive document we sought to guide the reader through the process and shed some light on a subject that is more relevant now than ever.
One of the key features of an interactive document is being able to present a large amount of complex information without the intimidation or confusion of a long, text-heavy document. By layering the information using buttons, we can guide the reader through the document and ensure that they digest the content in an engaging and structured way.
As with the majority of our projects, the process started with a deck of information that we mapped out in a framework to establish how it should be digested. Once that was set we could turn this framework into a sketch and flesh out the design. Lastly, the interactivity was built in to allow the user to navigate the document.
