Restore the Mississippi River Delta is a coalition of several regional and national environmental groups dedicated to protecting Louisiana from the continuing threat of coastal land loss.

Their website is an important resource for promoting awareness and educating the public, but originally lacked visual appeal and organization. In 2016, I redesigned the site from the ground up by introducing strong typography, a bold color palette, and a progressive look that flowed throughout the entire site.

A major component of the site — the Priority Restoration Projects interactive map — highlights the status of active restoration projects.

Shortly after the website launched, the client was so thrilled with the finished product that I continued to work with them to design several print materials including a 40-page report, a report summary, and a full page advertisment.

In early 2020, I designed a 12-page report and one-pager for the 10-year anniversary of the BP oil spill. The report reflects on the ecological and economical aftermath of the spill and MRD's recommended strategies for continuing coastal restoration projects now and in the future.
