What Has Changed:
- I have changed the backgrounds to make the overall website more interesting and conventional to our other products such as the digipak.
- I have added comments/captions to the images on the gallery page.
- I have added skyscrapers to help make the overall website stand out.
- Some of the typeface has changed to the same text as on our digipak which is conventional.

This is our website Millie and I have designed, we chose the same colour scheme as our digipak and used the image on the front cover for our merchandise. We chose a similar font type to our digipak to bring them both together and help the overall website look ecstatically pleasing to the eyes. The feedback we received was all positive everyone liked the colours and images we used throughout our website and also liked the layout as they said it was easy to use and navigate and still looks effective.
- use some quotes
- use the other panes from the DP as backgrounds and include somewhere else
- video needs to be higher up the pages
- not sure about white font on yellow
- captions with some of the gallery photos
- couple of made up news stories
- couple of other album covers that link to music
- Biography higher up to include your mission statement
- What about social media links to actual Aluna George pages
We would like to include the elements of AIDA, Attention, Interest, Desire and Action in our website design. Th conventional elements in an R&B/pop music website design includes things like convergent links which send you to more information on another page; a navigation bar which allows you to transport from page to page and a hero shot which is an image of the star which shows new fans what the artist looks like.
Here, Millie and I have done a screencastify on this professional website. We analysed her website design, this has helped us to become more familiar with different website designs and especially because she is an R&B artist this will help us and give us different ideas of what to include in out website.
As a part of our research for our website design, I decided to analysis a pervious students work to get more ideas and to help us widen our work further by adding new technical conventions and visual branding we have learnt from someone else’s website design.
I chose a website that seems to be the same genre as our star image/brand, R&B/pop music, the website I chose is called, Ama Lou. The layout of the website is easy to use and navigate. The overall layout is ecstatically pleasing as the colour scheme of black, grey and white works throughout and even though they are simple colours they work nicely together and is still very effective. Everything is easy to find with the search bar at the top along side the links such as, bio, music, tour, gallery and contact. These are obvious things Millie and I need to include in our website to insure it is the best it can be.
Furthermore, I also like how the typeface of the stars name, ‘Ama Lou’ is written as if the artist wrote it herself, I think this makes the overall website more meaningful as pleasing to the eye because it goes with her edgy theme that is seen throughout the website design. Moving on, when you click the link ‘bio’ at the top of the page which drops down the description of the artist, the bio is full of important information any fan would want to know, like her age, nationally and other things about the star.
Overall, I like this website and have seen some things I would like to try and include in our website, such as the hand writing font for the stars name. Although, there could have been more things which would have made it better, for example adding more digipaks to make it seem more realistic and include more information about the images used or quotes to help us as the audience connect with the artist more.
Here, I have created a slide with a famous stars website and labelled each website terminology I could find whilst searching for ideas for when millie and I start to design our website. All of these bits which make up this website are conventional to a R&B/pop music website design, for example a hero shot of the star to show the audience what they look like if they are new to the site, and a skyscraper to link you to another part of the site. This has helped me to remember different bits that overall make a website and will help me think about what i would like to include in our website design.
