Content for website;
- What is your subject matter?
- What are you trying to communicate?
- Who will be/could be your audience or 'end-user'?
- What will be the most appropriate/effective form of content?
- What is the function and purpose?
- Health and welbeing
- Sport and fitness
- Music industry
- Travel and tourism
When thinking about designing a website, always think about; who, what, why, and how? these are the questions you should have answered before even think about the design, some of the answers may change as you are designing, but that will just happen.
I then thought further into what I wanted on my website, whether I wanted hand crafted cards or digital cards, whether I wanted my cards to be funny or serious. The tone of voice of my product will effect the website itself. I started to think about what I wanted on my website, showing the different roads I could go down, which stimulated many ideas in my head, and I now have a good idea of where I am going to take this project.
I found myself coming out of this workshop with a clearer idea of what I wanted to do for my web design, and what the content should be, although I have also come out with questions and things I need to research more on, and find out more about before I can have a definite idea of what I want to do.
Things to look further into;
- Look at websites related to my content.
- Think about why they are designed like that.
- Look at the design rather than the content.
- Do qualitative and quantitative research, primary and secondary research, segmentation (looking at the audience), focus groups, visual research.
- Relate to my subject or design I like
- A3 and Colour
- Why is it good? Why do we like it?
