Website portfolio plan

Looking at the picture of “Black Power”,  a lot can be said about what we initially gather from the picture. We are drawn to the two men raising the black power salute, rather than white man awarded silver. In learning about the story behind the photo, we realise these three men  made a standOLYMPICS-BLACK-POWER-SALU-008 in the name of civil rights that day, at the cost of their careers.

A brief summary  of my website:

In creating the A-master, there was a small icon next to the home page, in the “Plan” section of Muse. It looks like a plus sign  and created another page that I filled out as the “About Me” section. The Home page was pre-existing. The rollover (WordPress icon) was created in photoshop and had two  layers, one for when  the cursor wants hovering over it, one for when  it does. It goes from Black  and white, to blue and white, connecting to my WordPress blog, as I couldn’t get a Facebook link working. This rollover is down the bottom of the About Me page. The Home page has a video  of my first piece of media work, a music video known  as “Vampire Underground”. The menu  is dark  blue and the background is purple, and underneath the menu, there is a banner of Knight chess piece clipart, 11 in a row.

What makes good website…

  • Simple Visuals

  • Easy to read

  • Prioritise content

  • Image choice

  • Audience

  • Contextual awareness of audience;

 

 iOS 7 has an accelerometer, a gyroscope and compass, which can identify running, walking or whether you’re in a car.

E-commerce is a tool, a software on a website. It is helped by contextual awareness. It all depends when and  where, what you are doing. If someone looks up a brand of food or drink, or has a particular interest, it’ll be presented to them again on social media,  like on Facebook.

Being followed and following a lot of people on Facebook, i get emailed as well  as notified by Facebook. having signed up to FB with my gmail account, it allows Facebook  to  notify me by the mean of gmail and Facebook itself. it makes me want to  respond to  these notifications, use the website in all it’s capabilities.

Graphical style depends on what device is being used,  be that a smart phone, smart TV,  tablet, smart watch, etc.

Looking at the IMDb page for the first Shrek film;

  • Drop downs for the website itself,  but also for the details for the film in particular,  such as the cast and crew, trivia, user reviews and something called IMDb pro, etc.
  • The page also  features advertisements for other media.
  • It features these aforementioned features in full, though there is an option to view more on each.
  • There’s also an  option  for frequently  asked questions about the film.

Design;

On the IMDb page for Shrek, the shapes included in the design are mostly quadrilateral, with  the logo being slightly rounded.  The colour scheme is black, yellow and white, with the white colourisation  being mostly featured along the page itself, with  the other two  colours being featured in  the logo and the banner around the page. It uses one font, sans  serif and in black,with  variations in colours with links (blue) and spoilers (red). The shadows are hard to  distinguish from  the background, an advertisements that uses and could potentially use clashing colours with the page itself. Despite this fact, this ints an issue, because the top of film’s page has a shinier gradient than  the matt black of the advert at this time,  which  is for  film called “Fences”.

My reasoning for subtitles

The reason  for having subtitles rather than placards, in the place of dialogue, is due to a need to  keep  the flow of what’s onscreen  being uninterrupted. though this was the initial idea, i have since thought of it as a means to  have the silent film, appear as something of a storybook, as each shot and the words of dialogue would be like writing on page to  a certain extent.
