FRA Charterpedia

The main target of this project was to develop a concept for the online-tool „Charterpedia“. The developing process concentrates on the target group “young people”. Our team has worked out a web-based version for classic web browsing and a web-based version optimized for mobile devices.

The European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) developed the Charterpedia, an online tool that allows users to access information about fundamental rights in the European Union (EU) and its Member States. It is structured around the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the EU, and is available on the FRA website (fra.europa.eu).

This project passed through tree stages: research, design and prototyping.

In the first phase the visual design trends were identified, the personas were developed and the target group was defined. Also a competitor analysis was performed, where different websites in the field of government and rights were combined. After the research phase 3 different concepts on the basis of wireframes for a mobile website and a website for desktop usage were created. Based on these wireframes a final version, which was the basis for the visual design, was developed. Because of the enormous amounts of information of the fundamental rights, a color scheme was developed to reduce complexity. Also true-life stories for each fundamental right were chosen to make the rights and their message more understandable. The last step was to implement the visual design into a web based services.
