Global Wave Conference 2015

  • Global Wave Conference
    An environmental conference held in October 2015, in Cornwall & London, England. Hosted by UK charity Surfers Against Sewage, the conference aims to highlight the growing threats to waves and surfing habitats worldwide, facilitate global coastal environmental and sustainability initiatives, and increase leadership from the surfing community on the protection of waves, oceans, beaches and marine ecosystems. I creatively directed all conference materials, branding and designed/built the website showcased below. The wave animation was created by David Urbanati and the photography is all by Karl Mackie.

  • Navigation
    A fullscreen navigation panel, when opened, pushes all other content off-screen, dividing focus between content and navigation in their own distinct, distraction free environment — I wanted to focus on the content, with a clean, easy to read, clutter-free UI.
