🌲 Explore National Parks

National Park travel resource and trip tracker designed and prototyped with Adobe XD.



I worked with Responsival the summer of 2020 as a Design Assistant and was able to work on a personal project under their mentorship. I love traveling to National Parks, so I decided to design a website that would collect resources on each National Park and allow users to track their trips. Users would be able to bookmark resources so that they could easily get back to them later, which would be great for general research or trip planning purposes.


I used Adobe XD to create the wireframes and prototype. Adobe Illustrator was used for designing the logos, and Canva was used to create the marketing collateral.


May to August 2020 (3 months)


During this summer internship, each week I had a new assignment to that helped me work towards completing my project. More details and deliverables from this process are available in the embedded Google Slides above.
