Project 3 Exercise 1

Show and Tell - Website Analysis

Each student is asked to find 2 websites that are inspiring and are examples of good design. Spend sometime exploring these sites and analyse them according to the following:

  1. Briefly describe the site. What content is presented? What is the goal(s) of the site?
  2. Describe the visual design – use of colour, typography, compostion. How is this effective?
  3. How is the content structured? Is there a hierarchy of information and how is this achieved?
  4. Analyse and describe the interactions. Are these innovative or conventional? Does it add value?
  5. Are there any surprises or unexpected elements?

Post your analysis to the wiki. Be sure to include a link and any graphics as needed. Do this by the end of class today.
