website redesign competition
Osuma.fi is a Finnish community for rating, reviewing, and recommending companies in your¬†neighborhood. Some would¬†describe¬†it as the finnish version of Yelp. They announced a redesign competition in cooperation with the Design Department of my University.
My concept is built around the idea of putting maps in a more centralized position. The startpage always shows a map of the¬†surrounding¬†area (based on the user’s IP-address). The result is a more¬†structured¬†and visual¬†representation. Furthermore it¬†adds¬†gamification elements on the start page, for example, it shows recently earned badges and other achievements.
The maps are based on OpenStreetMaps and styled with¬†Mapbox.
