Discussion on Interactive Design. What it is, and approaches to IxD.
Interactive design is a process in which Designers create an engagement between the technology and it’s user. Interactive design allows a user to become directly involved in the medium and in turn form a greater understanding of the design whilst maintaining interest.
This interactive website was created in France, and is a simple yet great example of Interactive Design. The theme is kept very minimal, allowing easy progression and understanding for the user. The site allows interaction through each page, each click, grab or drag interacts with the object in the screen differently, and with no prompt from the site, the user engages in a fun self motivated engagement.

The website includes a dashboard containing information on population projects and womens empowerment indicator by world, region, and country.
An Insights section shows how women are fairing in education, employment, and government.
A Data Gallery appears at the end of the page exploring data graphs about domestic violence trends, household decision making and other women empowerment topics.
Pros: Colour scheme is easy on eyes, and layout allows for easy progression through information. The website provides a video at the very beginning that discusses general trends and research found by the company, then begins to explain topics relating to women empowerment. Makes great comparisons from country to country.
Cons: In the Dashboard, it is not clear what each piece of information means i.e region rank and world rank. Does the number relate to popularity of the country? Amount of people in that country?
