CLIENT: Odysseus Data Services
ROLE: UX | UI Design

As a sister tool of Arachne, this serves as a vocabulary resource for researchers “that enables transparent and consistent content across disparate observational databases”. It enables research teams “conduct efficient and reproducible observational research”.

My role was design something attractive and easy to use and navigate. Athena’s vast database is complex and we needed to accomplish a clear filtering system. I wanted to keep the engagement compartmentalized by really defining the separate sections in order to direct the user’s focus, almost in a step 1, step 2 method.
