The Sex Book

The Sex Book is a website that will offer a truly comprehensive and inclusive sex education American publicc schools often fail to provide. The website will offer offer information on topics including: anatomy, puberty, sexuality, gender identity, consent and more. This is meant to be another additional reource that teens and young adults can use to find accurate, current, and intersectional information on sexual health.

The Sex Book website will be an extension of the Instagram @The.Sexbook that was created by a friend of mine. She is passionate about intersectional representation in all fields, and upon noticing the huge discrepincies in the way that Sex Ed is taught in our public schools, she found a way to use her platform to do something about it. I really wanted to get involed in her project and mission, so what better way to do that than help with making her platform's website.

Design Strategy

Design Strategy

To design this website I want to further extends the brands existing identity by staying inline with their color scheme and general vibe. I want the website to feel sleek and easy to read, as educational sited can often come across as really overwhelming. The fonts, spacing, and other components are going to be essencial in creating an online space that lends itself to teaching and connecting with a young audience.

Functions

Functions

I imagine I will mostly use functions to display information in interesting ways, much like I have on this page. I'm going to take full advantage of using JQuery to hid and show different elements of a page when relevant. I think it will also be useful to implement functions for annimations on the page to really bring a piece that could otherwise be static and full of text to life.

Research Plan

Research Plan

I plan to do a lot of outside research in order to make sure that the site is as accurate as possible. Luckily I have the platform's Instagram page to bounce of off, which has plenty of resources and places I can look to for information.
