Incels

Over the last two decades, incels have become a prolific and widely-reviled internet subculture. However, many still only have a vague understanding of them. This website serves as a comprehensive introduction to the world of incels, covering their origins, ideology, history of violence, and potential future. Striking animated imagery reflect the dark nature of the topic while enticing the reader into learning more.

Research

I researched incels and kept track of all the information necessary to have a basic understanding of their world. I decided the most vital information could be categorized into their history, their ideology, and the acts of violence they have committed since their inception. These notes can be viewed here.

 

Since I decided to create this website in an interactive essay style, I then formed these notes into concise paragraphs. Throughout the writing process, I was brainstorming visuals that would go along with these concepts, and how these elements would interact with each other. The original essay can be viewed here.
