Here’s a video that showcases the basic structure of the website. The website is broken up into drop-down menus, a giant banner, and different sections. The main colors of the website are blue and white, which provide a calming effect. It appears minimalistic and is easy to navigate. No flashy colors, effects, or sounds.

Here’s a picture of a white woman working on something while wearing protective goggles, earmuffs, and an apron with the caption “Improving Workplace Safety and Health”. This gives me the impression that the CDC is interested in appealing women from all different job occupations, even ones where they’re a very small minority.
