Design a 5-page website or blog to promote your hometown (or any other place if you so choose). Present your design along with a strategy that explains the decisions you’ve made during the design process (keep the six steps mentioned in the lesson Web Design Process: Designing for Web (part 2) in mind). Remember, it’s important for us to see howyou think, so explain why you decided to do things the way you did.
This is a front-end design learning activity. No coding or publishing is needed.
Please upload this activity to your WordPress blog along with a Word document or PDF explaining your strategy.
I designed a website to promote my current hometown Stranda. Using four of the six steps from the lesson mentioned above, (and some made up answers) I came up the following solution:
- Establish goals
Local businesses want the website to promote the town to potential tourists and increase the number visitors and hopefully they will leave lots of money here
Local politicians wants competent manpower to work for their businesses and or bring their own businesses to the town.
- Who is the audience?
Tourists and competent manpower.
- What is your brands image?
Target market: Tourists who want to experience nordic nature at its most epic, wether it be by . And people who want to work the same surroundings. Age range from young adults in their 20’s to more mature people.
- Solve the problem!
I didn’t buy a domain, but made up an available one called http://www.komtilstrand.no.
I designed a minimalistic website with nordic and modern fonts. 3 out of 5 background/hero images are of the town Stranda, taken by me. The other 2 images are pictures with creative commons license free for commercial use downloaded from pexels.com. The navigation bare is clearly visible on all the pages. External links are placed on relevant areas amongst the body copy.
