Digital Description


Historic Kirkwood Neighborhood is the official website of the Kirkwood Neighborhood. The website can be found at historic-kirkwood.org and the Kirkwood area can be found in East Atlanta. The area of Kirkwood was founded in the 1870s, though when the website was made isn’t on the actual page.

The website opens itself with the info about what Kirdwood is and a small bit about what happens there and how to get involved in it. At the top of the page are many useful tabs that can take you around the site. The tabs tell you about the history, what goes on here, where to eat, and some other useful information if you visit the Kirkwood area. The tabs also have drop down boxes that give you more details about a specific thing related to the main box.


The whole site is very easy to flow through to find whatever you are looking for. The whole page is fast moving and responsive. The tabs give you the general feel of the neighborhood and answer any questions that are related to the neighborhood.

The page is mainly white, gray, black, and red. The monotone feel of the blacks through gray are calm and make the reds that exist on the tabs and few other places pop out. This use of color to pop out important information is very helpful and keeps your eyes from missing something. The site makes me feel really calm and at ease as I export the site. This ease that the site gives me might be me being a bit bias towards the colors black, white, and red since they are my favorite.


The sites main purpose is to tell about Kirkwood and what happens there. The site is mainly used by people who want to move to Kirkwood, people who live there, or people who live in Atlanta. The site targets itself toward to Kirkwood community, due to it being the official site of the Kirkwood Community. The site signals anyone who lives in Kirkwood or those curious about it.
