Competitor Analysis

The following competitors were identified in collaboration with the Return To Rio Team

Information Architecture

UI Design

The UI Design was a challenging process due to the complexity of the illustrations and Rio's style. The team was able to work together with the illustrator in order to design a web experience that not only satisfies the main user's needs, but also delights its audience.


Return to Rio website was successfully developed with Wordpress using the Uncode Theme as a base. This enabled the team to deliver the site in only 2 months.
