Web Design

The Flying Scotsman is an express passenger train that has been running up and down the UK respectively—since 1862. The challenge was to design a responsive website which featured a historic timeline, GPS journey tracker and enable end users to purchase a ticket–via a third party payment channel.

Graphic user-interface (GUI)

Throughout the website, there is a lot of amazing historical information on The Flying Scotsman— facts, dates and achievements. I designed some simplistic animated infographics which were designed to engage existing/new users into learning more fun facts, interact with the content and to be inspired by the locomotive.

The Flying Scotsman tours

The locomotive goes on tour around the country and is scheduled to different locations throughout the year. The website required an ‘events’ page to showcase the next stops which allow users to book their slots with external parties. The events can be filtered by month to see its scheduled journey in advance.

Timeline

The Flying Scotsman has decades of rich content from the 1860’s which needed displaying in bite-sized chunks throughout the website. As a solution, I designed a simple timeline which showcases images, quotes and information about the locomotive in that era.

Interactive locomotive features

The locomotive had some incredibly detailed facts which were stored within lines and lines of copy. I decided to create an interactive way for users to engage and read all this information — ‘click and learn’. I designed hotspots on the vertical image which would reveal historical facts about the locomotive.

Premium historic photography

Throughout the website, I have carefully selected strong images that complement the story, aim for a more personalised, human connection with the users. The premium photography can help users stimulate their imagination and help re-create the historical experience.
