Homepage for Oceanographer Daniel Whitt's website

Letter Kay is pleased to announce that our favorite oceanographer Daniel Whitt now has a website worthy of this decade. Letter Kay worked with Whitt to craft a website that provides both an overview and in depth view of his research. 

The challenge in the design was how to display vast amounts of text without making the text overwhelming to the viewer. The solution was to use typography and imagery from Whitt's research to break up the text. An overview of the research was displayed on the homepage with links to further reading on a subpage. 

Wave-like design elements are used throughout the site to add interest and break apart the text. Lastly, a polar bear illustration appears in the footer as reminder of the importance of Whitt's work in understanding climate change.
