Website Design, Creation and Evaluation

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

HND COMPUTING Department of ICT Module: Website Design Assignment Title: Website Design, Creation and Evaluation Submitted by: Josh Gardner For the attention of: Mike Bird Date submitted: 30th January 2009 Acknowledgements I would like to thank Mike Bird for all his help with this project, Abstract Summary In this assignment I have researched several current e-business websites, and assessed their respective designs and functionality. The original Assignment structure was: 1. Assess the design and functionality of existing and established e-business sites. 2. Examine a range of web authoring tools for creating multimedia websites. 3. Develop an integrated set of web pages / frames. 4. Develop interactive applications on a web server. For each of the points above, I spent a substantial amount of time researching each area in detail, making sure I had plenty of information so I could make informed decisions. I feel this has had a positive effect on my final results and conclusions. This report is presented in an organised manner, with a logical progression from the initial ideas and assessments, through to the final design and implementation of my website. Microsoft Word was used for the creation of this report.

I have decided to go for a golfing e-business, selling various golfing items such as clubs, bags and golf clothes to name but a few. The is prompted by the fact that I myself have a great deal of interest in the sport, and have a good knowledge of golfing products. Also the idea of a golf e-business fits nicely with the size and scope of what I am trying to achieve with this project. Therefore for this purpose I will be creating the company: World Golf, an online retailer of golfing goods. Whilst researching development methodologies, it became clear to me that there aren't that many specific to web development. The most suitable I found was the John December methodology . This is a 6-fold development methodology, focussing on core components of Planning, Analysis, Design, Implementation, Promotion and Innovation. This will be the methodology that I will roughly adhere to during my development. 4.2 Planning and Analysis Who is the website aimed at? The site is primarily designed for the golfing audience, and this will be where the majority our business lies. Attracting customers from outside our normal target zone will be an ongoing problem for the business. Our target audience will be people in the age range of 18 - 50 year olds i.e. the general golfing society. I will have to take this age range into account when designing the website, in terms of layout, colour and accessibility. Why create the website? The reason for the creation of the site is to establish an interface between World Golf and its customers, and ultimately allow the products and services to be purchased by the consumer. How will the website be created? The website will be designed using Macromedia Flash scripting and Macromedia Dreamweaver. What maintenance will be required once fully developed? Ultimately the site will reflect a real shop. Therefore products will need replacing, quantities updating, sales advertised etc... ...read more.

Style #4 This final theme uses bold and luxurious colours to give a sense of quality. The splash of green helps give the otherwise bland scheme a nice kick.
