At­lantico Mar­ket

A site de­signed to serve the needs of both lo­cal vis­i­tors and tourists

net magazine - - SHOWCASE -

Food mar­kets of­fer a unique ex­pe­ri­ence to both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors. My aim with the At­lantico Mar­ket web­site is to sat­isfy the needs of these two au­di­ences by of­fer­ing a site that is in­tu­itive and so­phis­ti­cated. I looked to con­nect with lo­cals by us­ing the colours of the Bar­ran­quilla flag to high­light the cat­e­gories and, with the in­ter­na­tional au­di­ence in mind, I’ve cre­ated a so­phis­ti­cated, clean feel.

Ac­ces­si­bil­ity is what makes this site unique. Push­ing the bound­aries of what is thought of as a con­ven­tional web­site, the site feels more like an ap­pli­ca­tion where the con­tent is the pri­mary fo­cus. The hor­i­zon­tal, Net­flix-like ap­proach of mov­ing through cards brings fa­mil­iar­ity to the ex­pe­ri­ence and low­ers the learn­ing curve.

I en­vi­sion this site be­ing built by JavaScript tech­nolo­gies, such as Re­act, to al­low users to in­ter­act with it quickly and get in­stant feed­back. I would look to make use of a static site gen­er­a­tor like Gatsby to of­fer users a faster ex­pe­ri­ence.
