The Tragedy of the Romanovs Website

When the 2016 Broadway musical, “Anastasia,” came out, I quickly fell in love with the soundtrack, history, and fantasy of the story. This website provides a quick overview of the reign of Czar Nicholas II, the execution of his family, and the rumors and mystery that circled the disaster.

This story is a mix of beauty and tragedy, so I combined bold, photographic letterforms with a supersaturated, violent red to capture these two ideas. In addition to designing this minimal website, I hand-coded it. This project is responsive and includes a feature to update the years since each event automatically.
