Background

Your Daily Briefing is powered by News API. The web application acts as a personal dashboard and newsfeed that curates the top twenty general headlines and articles trending in Canada.

Process

I started out by wireframing and prototyping various iterations of the dashboard and newsfeed before working in the browser.

Rationale

With the visual design, I made the decision to do away with images and use only dramatic typography and colour to draw attention to the headlines. In doing so, the headlines become easy to scan over and scroll through both on desktop and on mobile devices. On desktop, the user can hover over the headline to read a short description.
