Reinterpreting the Virtual Visitor Experience of the Dorrance H. Hamilton Fernery
The purpose of this project was to update and improve the web presence for the Dorrance H. Hamilton Fernery at the Morris Arboretum. To do this I first evaluated the resources already present on the website, and then researched how other gardens and institutions utilize their online resources. Using this information I created a new design template for the website, which included an interactive comprehensive timeline feature, a downloadable self-guided tour, and external resource links. Once fully implemented the new Fernery website will be a place for people to visit and learn about the structure, the history, and the fern collection housed within the Dorrance H. Hamilton Fernery.
