Vía España Magazine and Silbo Gomero Interactive Storytelling

Spain, although comparatively small geographically to the U.S., has a culture just as diverse and rich as our own, with a developed history that goes back centuries. In my designs, I tried to avoid some of the clichés and stereotypes of Spain and instead keep it modern. After all, this feature article is no ordinary story: this is the tale of a unique whistling language found solely on the island Gomero in the Canary Islands. After doing an otherwise unrelated project on the Canary Islands for a Spanish course, I was inspired to delve deeper into this fascinating culture with the magazine and site. I wanted the site to tell the feature story, whether the words from the original article were there or not.
