website research for main website.

In today lesson we paired up to create our main website. I paired up with Mia and we started researching what children's charity websites were like. Mostly we found that the layouts were a very simple design making it easy for the audience to use and in these cases the websites are also there for children, so it is important that these website are easy to navigate your way around. Each website we looked at had a consistent colour scheme and the colours were usually quite bright and vibrant colours but not too distracting, making it aesthetically pleasing for the audience. We also noticed that each of the websites but one had their logo's in the top left hand corner with nothing around them to distract the audience from them. they were also quite big and took up quite a lot of space at the top of the page. There is also visual aid on each of the homepages of the websites to make it more interesting for the audience that are viewing the website, especially for the younger audience. The links and navigation bars are all very easy to use and clearly places to make it very easy to use, they mostly have rollovers to show you exactly what your clicking on. If the audience found using these hard, there is also search bars on each of the websites. Each of these things we will take into consideration when creating our website.
