Minor Project: Homelessness in the UK

Homelessness is a recognised problem around the world, although many people underestimate how bad it is here in the UK.

One of the problems with helping is that often people don’t like the idea giving money to charity because of reasons like not having much disposable income, or not knowing if the whole donation will be going to the cause that needs it. The point of my project was for people to pass on knowledge and experience to these homeless people, instead of giving charities or people directly money.

The name Umbrella came from the style of charity it would be, it would be self sufficient and wouldn’t need much in the way of money to run. It would be run by people adding in information to help the site grow. The main components of the logo are the fountain pen and the umbrella, but there is also a hint of a sun, and it’s rays depicting hope. I chose yellow as a bright, fun colour to contrast with the blue.

The actual site and app would be colourful and easy to navigate. Click on the section you want to learn/teach and you have everything in that section for you.

There is a lot i’d like to do for this project, introduce more curves and include more information on the site and app. Although overall I’m over the moon with my 72!
