What we have addressed from the checklist:

  • We have evidence and shown our digipak
  • We have an about statement for the star at the top of the page under her image
  • News stories from news and social media from the original star
  • Social media accounts from the original star shown with the logos for easy access
  • Our titles are in a suitable font which is bold and easy to read. Also suiting the fonts used in the digipak and also conventional to the pop genre
  • Tour dates which link to ticket master
  • A store page which includes merchandise for audience to purchase
  • Our music video is on there and briefly introduced
  • We have included a gallery of photos from our narrative and performance shoots as well as our digipak images
  • Images are all our own
  • Backgrounds are just solid colours from Wix.com as well as a couple of the moving backgrounds on the website. Another of the backgrounds is a gif we made from our music video.

 

What we could improve on/ add in:

  • There could be more about the digipak, making it stand our more on the page and promote more
  • We could add in a drop down menu because there is currently none
  • Could introduce the music video more
  • We could add captions and small stories to the images in the gallery to entertain and inform the audience more
  • We haven’t linked the album cover to any music or any websites. This could be added so the demographics don’t get lost or lose interest.

Flow chart and preferred template

Below is a flowchart of how the layout of our website is going to be. In order to achieve this we we use a template such as the Press Kit- Singer Songwriter template on Wix.com because this template gives us the ability to be able to scroll down the whole website instead of opening lots of different pages and tabs and saving the hassle of everyone getting cofused. We can also use all of the elements we want and make it suit our star and fit our pop genre, we can make it our own.

Here is our flow chart below

Audience interaction with a website- an analysis

Above is a screen castify my partner and I made analysing and looking at how the audience can interact with Sigrid’s website. We analysed it using Blumler and Katz theories as well as AIDA which is exploring attraction, interest, desire and call to action. This is useful for my partner and I when we start to make our website of what we should include and what we shouldn’t. We have anaylsed how the audience will receive the website and how they will and how they can interact with it. By knowing this we can make sure our website targets the audience in the same way that Sigrid’s demographics read the website and how to make sure they wont reject the text and they know how to use the website

 

Website terminology

Below is a slideshow which has multipe screenshots of Sigrid’s website and I have analysed the different features of a website which are also on Sigrid’s website. By completing this task I have learnt the different conventions for websites in order to help us when we come to make our own website because we can understand and will know the conventions and how they have been used for the original star of our song and how she is portrayed on her website to her demographics
