Measuring Australia's love, by numbers
To celebrate the 2017 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras festival, Google partnered with Australian Marriage Equality to ask people from all over Australia to share their thoughts and experiences about love – from what’s an acceptable public display of affection, to who we love and how deeply we feel it, to whether we believe in marriage equality.
Users can explore the key results of the survey through a beautiful interactive website. The website is comprised of two primary pieces - a WebGL component built using Pixi.js to drive the interface, and Vue.js components that power the interactivity. I did not work on the WebGL layer.
Exploring the Results
A playful and engaging interface, held together by the use of a single line drawing, invites the user in to explore the site. Each of the 8 categories of the survey has a distinct visual representation, and users can navigate backwards or forwards for a free-form exploration of the results.
Building with components
Website elements were implemented, extended and re-used as Vue.js components. This includes the header areas, swipe menus as well as landing and about pages.
The app was packaged and built using webpack and babel, with optimisations to keep the website payload small and quick to load.
