This Is Alaska by Riccardo Vicentelli

This Is Alaska is a personal project by our featured artist, Riccardo. We had a glimpse of his various artworks from last year Google Page, Design Geometry and Seven Summits. Now, we are in for another treat when he decided to redesign the State of Alaska’s official website for travel and information and it is a must-see. Enjoy!

Alaska is my favorite land. I think it’s a magical place, where nature finds its highest expression and where a human being can find himself. While I was watching the current “Official State of Alaska vacation and travel information website” I felt the need to redesign it, just to give my vision.

The shades of color, the simplicity of the layouts, the harmony of the shapes are a symbiosis between that land and my vision of design.

To complete the project, it took a week. I worked hard to design clear and simple layout.

I had just finished to design a website for an American company, then I had the idea of going to see the website of my favorite land and found it a little outdated. I think the current website is not really able to convey the beauty of Alaska. Then I designed my version with my vision.
