Project 9: Google.com Search Redesign

For this project, I spent 90% of my time thinking of/sketching out the layout of the page and the last 10% was spent on the execution. I put a lot of thought into what functions could be added to the page - and after several wireframes, I decided to keep the functionality of the page similar to how it is now. There’s something to be said for such a simple composition with no added call-to-actions.

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.

I had so much fun with this project and hope y’all like my interpretation of the redesign.
