For a friend who planned on traveling the world for 5 years he wanted to have a blog where he could post updates to his friends during his travelings.
The idea from the very beginning was to display his traveling route on a map and showcase the huge journey he’s undertaking. I created two different designs with the first one displaying a very detailed route which turned out to be too detailed. For the second design idea, I simplified the route by just giving a general idea where he’s going through and giving it a more sleek look. In the end, none of it was used because of the growing popularity of Facebook which allowed to inform friends of their whereabouts more directly without them having to visit a different website.
