We’ve learned about all kinds of interactive and design features during our studies, we noticed that the web page design shared a number of similarity’s with our already complete magazine design such as such as the website’s leader board essentially being a masthead and the hero shot being the equivalent of the main star image. We know from our research that the best media is media which is simple yet effective so we try to use a simple but stylish layout with conventional colors and everything the audience needs is easily visible and simple to use. We tried to but as little writing on the home page while making sure no info gets lost. This makes the website more inviting and pleasant for the audience. That same homepage also has access to all our social media, our music and links to our merchendice, our concerts and albums, letting fans and viewers interact with the band as they please.
The design and colors instantly connote alt rock and convey the band as comfortable in their position. The contrasting black and red inspired by Twenty One Pilots ‘Blurry Face’ digi pack helps convey a sense of sorrow mixed with a strong embodiment of passion and rebellion, it says this band does what they want, they sing what they feel and they won’t be manipulated and play the game of fame just for money or success they’ll do it because the music and their art is important to them and they know it’s important to others (their fans). The second you start the website you’re face to face with the band creating an instant connection with them, the expressions on their face convey that same sense of refusal to fall dispite the world trying to force them down. It’s almost inspirational as well as calming and comforting.
