February 28, 2012

Today we are starting work on our designs for a website, I decided I would use Mentourn’s website as a template, I really liked this website as it was simple but effective. I knew I wanted to change the colours to black and change some of the headings, but the majority of the websites layout […]

Now I'm starting to think about designing my website, I'm looking at wireframes. I started working on wireframes last year with another lecturer on a similar module, I think it's a great way to make the website look professional. It makes the webpage easy on the eye.

I really love Mentorn Media’s website, the thing I love about it is that it’s interactive without becoming clunky and over the top. When you open the web page it randomly selects something to show you, for example, you either get Fact Ent, Doc series, Single Docs, Current Affairs, Drama or International. The main image […]

Again, Spungold Television have an interesting website, but I would definitely say that it is nowhere near as effective as Dragonfly’s. There’s an interesting colour scheme and a theme of a spider and his web. I’m not sure what actual relevance this even has for the company. I don’t think a website should ever leave […]
