CONNECTIONS: RETHINKING THE WAY WE DESIGN AN NAVIGATE WEBSITES. THIS TEMPLATE CHALLENGES THE TRADITIONAL VERTICAL SCROLLING FORMAT OF A WEBSITE. WHEN A BUTTON IS PRESSED, A “PATHWAY” LIGHTS UP, LEADING TO THE FOLLOWING WEBPAGE. RATHER THAN SCROLLING UP AN DOWN, THE USER CAN FREELY SCROLL IN ALL DIRECTIONS TO NAVIGATE THE WEBSITE, USING THE PATHS AS A GUIDE.






































THIS IS A SCREENSHOT FROM AN ADOBE XD FILE I WAS WORKING ON IN PROTOTYPE MODE. I WAS INTERESTED IN THE WAY THAT PATHS CAN VISUALLY CONNECT DIFFERENT WEBPAGES AND EXPOSING THIS CONCEPT IN AN INTERFACE. IF DESIGNERS CAN USE THIS FORMAT TO NAVIGATE WEBSITE INTERACTIONS, WHY CAN’T THE USER?
