Understanding Coronavirus


This project is an open source website I helped design, research, and write for while working at GoInvo. In a team of 2 other designers and 1 engineer, we launched a website at the end of January 2020 and updated the website weekly as new information about COVID-19 broke. The website was additionally adapted into a large format poster and a printable booklet.

UnderstandingCoronavirus.org was meant to educate a lay audience in the United States about the novel coronavirus as it was emerging. Due to the rapid and changing nature of the virus and the response to the pandemic, the website only focuses on summarizing the relevant world events, and events within the U.S. related to COVID-19 from January 2020 to March 2020. While some of the information was designed to be dynamic--pulling statistics from databases live--the website is generally specific to the information from the 3 initial months of the pandemic alone. See below for early sketches and designs for the website.
