In time for the 43rd anniversary of Apollo 17, the all new Apollo17.org is now live!
Over the past three months I have completely rebuilt how the site works. My good friend Chris Bennett, who I have worked with on many projects in my professional career, pushed me into new territory when in September he suggested that the mission imagery was far more important and impactful than the mission commentary or transcripts. This simple, and somewhat obvious insight had escaped me. I had worked for so long on rebuilding the transcripts that I couldn’t see past the need to make them the primary part of the experience. He provided a simple design sketch showing what a reprioritized interface might look like. This was an exciting new direction and got me rolling on a complete redesign.
