Project Information

The Syrian Memories platform was conceived to showcase and honor Syria's cultural diversity through a bilingual interface. Designed to transcend language barriers, it features stories in both Arabic and English. Extensive wireframes and mockups guided its user-friendly design, while community engagement and thorough research enriched the site with a broad spectrum of Syrian narratives. Emphasizing accessibility, I iterated the design based on beta tester feedback to optimize the user experience.


The website uses Javascript, for animations and playing audio on play, among other many handy features.


The entire website has been made by HTML and styled with CSS, to give a more personalised experience.


The visuals on the website were entirely created on Photoshop, creating a unique experience for each story.
