Production Log.

Extracts from this document...


Production Log Product The Internet is the largest and fastest growing source of information. There are thousands of web pages, some personal and others professional. All the leading shops and companies have web pages. When designing my own web site I must take into account the influence that web pages have over their visitors and the power web sites can have to put a message across. Or to build up an image of what the site represents. I am working alone so I can experience all the elements of web creation and to keep all areas of the web site in one style. I have researched already existing sites relevant to the creation of mine. In order to establish product conventions I have completed several radial analyses, and I've found there are many components used to create a web site, which will determine whether the site is a success or not. Colour is a major factor; web sites use colour to build up an image of its owner, in this case rock and metal bands. Popular colours used by bands like Metallica and Iron Maiden are black, white and red. All these colours imply masculinity, simplicity, boldness, dominance, danger and power. Another powerful medium used predominantly in web sites is slogans or logos. ...read more.


After this I decided on typeface. I printed different fonts and then choose two fonts and printed them at different sizes so I could consider my choices carefully before making my final selection Appendix 4. Then a colour scheme had to be decided before I could even consider other aspects of the site. This was done by using my radial analyses to see which the most popular colour schemes were and how effective their use was. I then decided that the best way to plan the rest of the site was to see how my target audience thought the site should look like and what it includes. I created a questionnaire with questions designed to simply find out what people expect from a website. These can be seen in Appendix 4. Using the questionnaires I went about panning different ways to implement different parts of the web site to fit in with my target audiences own views about web design. Animations, banners and interaction proved to be the popular choices for many people. So I planned to make animations from photos of the band as pictures capture more than words. I then made a plain but bold banner to feature on most pages. The only way I could find to make the site interactive with the equipment available to me was to create a guest book and message forum. ...read more.


The font it self is a rounded soft easy to read font in white which makes it very bold and has connotations of the purity of the band which adds positive imagery to the band. The titles use a very bold and large font designed to impose a sense of power over the audience. The background behind the text is even highlighted white so the text itself can be black again adding to the sense of power and raw darkness emerging from the light. This is to build a mysterious and dark side to the band thus allowing them to attract all types of people as fans and visitors of the site. Line of Vision: 1 Slogan (banner) 2 Page Title 3 Navigation Bar 4 Text 5 Pictures I believe that I have created a web site that will be a success. I have incorporated appropriate product conventions like colour scheme into my site but set new and original ones in other areas such as typeface to add originality to the site and to avoid being overlooked as a copy or standard site. The visitors have to want to return to the site and take more of an interest in the band for it to prove useful for Soap Dish, I hope by making the site original and different I will do just that. ...read more.
