This is our teacher feedback, he said, that to improve we should:
- Add more to our home page (call to action)
- Fill in empty paragraphs
- Move music video to top of media page to play automatically
- Add to the background image on home page and stop changing colour
- Add in tour dates and venues
- Red font is too dark
- Incorporate album cover into all pages
To create a website for our star we used Wix which is an online website creator. This was a quick and easy way to make a website while still being able to offer a range of features ready to use. As it was a new application that we had never used, we took a bit of time to get to know how it all works and develop our skills so that we had an interesting and easy to use web page.
Before creating the website we made a flowchart plan of what pages we wanted to include and what would feature on those pages. This enabled us to make a navigation bar to all our pages, such as a tour page, a page about our band and a media page which included information about the bands music and what it stands for, we also added a music player so that people could listen to their new music without having to purchase the whole album first.
This is a previous students work from another center.
The accessibility of this website is good as it is easily accessed by people in other countries as long as they have the name of the site.
The overall navigation of the website is very good, the navigation bar moves with the page meaning that you don’t have to scroll up and down the page to get to another. As you scroll down all of the pages listed in the navigation bar are there in order, highly visible and well labelled. This makes looking through the web page much quicker because you don’t have to wait for the page you have selected to load. The consistency of this web page shows the thorough planning and gives off a professional look
The information given about the star is detailed and gives you an insight into how the band came to be, where they originated from and how they found fame. This is useful as it is gives the band a personal identity instead of just being famous musicians. This fulfills the audiences uses and gratifications as they can fell like they know the stars and create a personal bond/relationship.
The branding of the website conveys a consistent brand image of pastel colours mixed with grungy, dark and indie vibes spreading through their music video. This suggests that the students put a lot of time and planning into their theme to make sure it is consistent to the brand making it distinguishable to their fans. However, the only downside to their web page is that it is unclear if their ‘discography’ is their digi-pack or a completely different thing.
