Plate of Nations is an annual event that celebrates the culinary diversity of minority ethnic groups in South Seattle. Our project's aim was to improve the event's online presence by revamping its design. We focused on better showcasing participating restaurants and their cultural backgrounds, adding detailed event information and a searchable restaurant directory. At their request, we also implemented a Digital Passport, enabling attendees to collect stamps and explore the event’s diverse cuisine. This proof of concept represents a significant step towards creating a more engaging and accessible Plate of Nations website, benefiting both attendees and local minority-owned businesses.
