Jackie Bourke is a research consultant, specialising in urban issues and children’s rights. She campaigns for the inclusion of play spaces for children in city areas, along with bringing a feminist perspective to new urban developments.

Jackie required a simple website showcasing her skills and experience. The site was to have minimum verbal content, and all content should be available with one click.

We created a single-page site, which starts with a video at the top of the page of walking through a city-space.

The video is overlaid with mosaic text, developed with CSS, giving the words a brick-like appearance. Mousing-over and clicking the bricks brings site visitors down to different parts of the page.

Other subtle urban hints are the granite texture on the grey background of the page, along with lots of space around each design element.
