The Client Brief was set before the Christmas break, wanting us to experience life outside the university with a live project. For this project I began to look at the most recent media news and how I could create a body of work around a subject of my choice. For myself, Researching is always the start to any project I produce and has become one of the key aspects to my final work. When receiving the brief, the concept came fourth of how people physically represent the body and the aspect of what we do not see that lies upon it.
When presenting the completed project, I found that the imagery was well received with people who were interested in the different ways the body looks from a microscopic view to how the images were not as simple as they appeared, making people question themselves on what they are truly looking at when observing the skin. Overall, the feedback I received was to consider the background colour from traditional white and to look at how the images are laid out on the page.
When designing and creating a website, you need to have done some research into layout and styling you are thinking about using. This will give you the chance to understand what you are looking to create but also give you inspiration for the creative flare for your own. A selection of things you need to consider are:
Typography and imagery are also key when designing your website. After selecting the layout you want, think about the typography you have connected to it. This can dramatically change the appearance of the site and improve the display of it. Traditional websites have Sans as their primary typography but you can change this by simple searching and selecting a writing style you prefer.
Imagery layout is one of the main features people see first. When selecting images, the way they are laid out determines the amount of time each visitor will look at them A simple gallery or slideshow can change the effect the images have on the viewer. This will allow the viewer to see all the images on display and go thought the images one by one, spending as much time needed on each image.
