The website showcases each of the alphabets. Navigation of the website was created with a simple concept: the drop-down menu changes the tools/methods, while the horizontal navigation changes the letter. Using this method, visitors can easily view a single letter in each of the different tools/methods or move through each of the letters in a set.
Three.js was used to allow visitors to rotate any 3D modeled letters, as 2 of the tools/methods were created with 3D software (Blender & Processing).
