Hakituri News redesigned
Hakituri means “mythical forest guardians” in Maori and the living beings on Earth could do with more protectors. Hakituri News is a news aggregator focused on the environment and the climate of our planet and dedicated to alert and educate people to protect biodiversity.
I started this project almost a year ago to collect the links found on Reddit, Wikipedia, and various websites through my more generalist news aggregator. It’s a very basic rails app and I simply reused the design from this last website.
Over the year I managed to keep posting regularly and I often thought that this project deserved a bit more attention and a less sober face. So today I finally took some time to put a cover image in the background, from one of the most beautiful and preserved places of Aotearoa (New Zealand), and I customised a little the cards of the news feed. Each news will now also have its own page.
I’m not yet completely happy with this new design but for a couple hours of work it’s already a good improvement.
And now back to Picture (more on that later).
