Galapagos Nat. Park Website

Galapagos National Park Website

After three years working as Environmental Communications Lead at the Galapagos National Park Service, I was given the opportunity to redesign the iconic organisation’s website.

This was an ambitious undertaking. The National Park Service employs close to 200 people. It has offices in all four inhabited islands as well as several outposts throughout the archipelago. It carries out an enormous amount of work each year, which has an impact on almost every aspect of local life. It also has an international profile and links to conservation intstitutions throughout the world.

THE CHALLENGE

With the backing of the Director and the active collaboration of most of the staff, I began the task of coordinating the design and production of the only communication product that brought all the work of the institution together in one easily accessible place.

THE PROJECT

I put together a skeleton Product team of two programmers and an assistant and myself as Design and Project lead. For six months, we coordinated with every National Park department to bring together, for the first time, all the work the institution does.

THE RESULTS

Over 500 pages, 1.500 images and 40.000 words describe the Galapagos National Park’s work and institutional organisation. The site was launched in March 2009.
