five leaves

Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner.

In the first week of GUI course, the students were challenged with designing an application that helps people understand the relationship between their local weather and climate change. After ideation, I came up with a concept which shows a comparison between current weather and weather change after 10 years, using simple visual elements.

In the second week, the students were challenged with redesigning the application from the first week, but not use text in the interface (no words, phrases, or text-based expressions), mentioning date was an exception. This enabled me to explore more and create five leaves, which is an experiment on visualizing the weather change in a playful way around 4 seasons in a year.
