Verbose Barnacle

Verbose Barnacle is a RESTful API based application that retrieves the definition, synonyms, antonyms and example of words, with the ability to persist data using localStorage.

The concept is a words search engine that presents an array of results in a minimalistic, organized way - yet positioned with a spatial relationship with one another and using a playful, flat colour palette that makes it very visual. By having a single word on individual cards serves as a way to frame it clearly and succinctly, offering the ability to coherently navigate across different results.

I developed this application using vanilla Javascript, localStorage, the wordsAPI, and SASS.
