It is vital to follow stick design principles when creating your digital media resource. My digital reasource was a website, which means that the priciples that I followed were closely adhered to the GUI (Graphical User Interface Design) standards.
When designing your website it is like looking for the latest fashion trend. You must search for the best use of colours, style choice ect. Much like designing a website you must have a great deal of understanding in these key areas: Consistency, choice and use of fonts, spacing and layout, and interactive images.
When ordering off a menu it is in a set, precise order. This allows the menu to be easily interpreted and understood by the drive-through customer in quick time. Much like a website, the information needs to be consise and easy to follow so that it is understandable to the viewer. Font sizes play a big role in that.
Having interactive elements is just one aspect of how to enhance your website. By following the GUI of design you will understand that if an interactive image is relevant it will demonstrate its effectiveness.
A home page was always a priority when creating my website. It allows the viewer to have a adequate understanding of what the website is about including the goals and functions. I believe that your home page should make a big statement and should not be cluttered with text.
At the end of a good day out it is always important to review your overall design. When completing my website, my first priority was to ascertain if any changes were required. This included additional elements or design principles that need to be evaluated. Overall, I believe I made sensible design choices.
