In the beginning there was an Excel sheet
We are building a website that shows where sustainable economic policy is being made in Europe. All it takes is an Excel spreadsheet from the Wuppertal Institute, a Webflow licence and our design expertise.
In the wake of the Corona pandemic, European countries have put together extensive economic stimulus packages.
The Wuppertal Institute, a renowned think tank for sustainability research, has investigated the extent to which these programmes not only help the economy but are also compatible with climate protection.
The data collected for this purpose was to be visualised in a microsite in order to enable a sustainability comparison of the countries and thus build up public pressure in the sense of a climate-friendly economic policy.
We were allowed to accompany the project in conception, design and implementation.
At its core, it was about combining and presenting data on CO2 emissions and government spending from a single Excel spreadsheet in different charts, dashboards and dynamically generated texts over and over again.
In Webflow, we conjured up some great interactive graphics with smoothly flowing animations from this data. The result is a site that combines science and aesthetics.
The Wuppertal Institute was not the only one who enjoyed this, and not only us, which is why we can look forward to further joint projects.
