Project 9: Google.com Redesign
In order to exercise our digital muscles, let’s redesign Google.com! This is limited strictly to a reskinning of the current site. Rebranding and/or adding any new functionalities to the home search page is completely optional. With there being already a minimal approach to the page, reimagining should require us to think hard, critically and outside of the box to create a quality solution.
For my execution, I wanted to bring Google’s color palette forward and create a vibrant, larger-than-life presence for the search function. Depending on what device you’re on, I have the map at the bottom of the browser with a scrubber, allowing the map to expand and take over the browser window. When the map search page takes over the browser, the scrubber reappears at the bottom, this time allowing the opportunity to expand the main search bar back onto the browser window - so the possibility to infinitely scrub between the two screens adds to the user experience.
