To standardize the appearance of the webpages, a template will be designed. The template will standardize the colors, margin, fonts and items that should be published on every page, and in the same location on the page. While designing the template, they need to keep in mind of how users read, rather how the scan the page. They do not read the page from left to rather the scan the page from top to bottom. To help ease users access content and for readability, the width of the margins and the size fonts need to be considered, how they will appear on various size screens, including mobile devices. To avoid distractions minimal colors, sound and video should be used at a minimal, animated backgrounds should be avoided, as it may just add to any visual glare from a screen, and difficult to view on smaller

For this assignment, I will be explaining how my portfolio, meets my target audience and purpose.
Keep to a color palate of no more than 3 basic colors. Include a variety of media options, such as video, tables, links, etc. Make the site more interesting by creating different looks for different pages.
This study found that three main elements are needed: consistent font style, consistent text and background color, a fast loading time, and well-placed hyperlinks. Hite and Railsback (2010) also determined that website development teams should possess several traits, such as marketing and technical skills and knowledge of user-interfaces and effective content. Because hyperlinks were noted as one of the most frustrating components for study participants, Hite and Railsback (2010) also suggest these design rules: do not use colors other than blue or photos/bullets as links, but do have an easy way to get to the home page. Hite and Railsback’s (2010) provide an excellent list of design elements that have been tested and proved, which will act as additional foundation for my analysis. I also plan to use their methods as a foundation for my own, since they were able to analyze a large amount of websites in a relatively short
It is one of the biggest flaws of the website, for this reason it is essential to create enough space between the paragraphs and images so the viewer has space to breathe, minimize the paragraphs size of the content, divide large blocks of information into more manageable groups where natural and appropriate, avoid content clutter especially on the homepage, present information in more precise and ordered way to minimize the scrolling required, and finally, organize the content with respect to the principles of contrast, repetition, alignment and proximity. All these steps must be taken to accomplish three of our usability goals (effective home page, Clarity of the interface, Motivating website), as well as to meet two of the Windows Interface Guidelines, "aesthetics" and "simplicity".
The purpose of this evaluation is to analyze the HTML website ‘We the Fans’ and estimate the feasibility and overall functionality of the site. When creating websites, there are many factors which need to be considered to make a site look, function and feel professional. Animation, Website features (video, sound, picture quality and resolution size), Design Principles, Positives/negatives, Improvements, and usability including navigation and load time, will be thoroughly researched to conclude the overall product.
In the project I created the website to format the information gather by Mayson and Tristan about the island. First I choose a free template to create a website in HTML editor, then started to format the website to fit the information and look nice. Next I found a picture to change the background of the website to a island that matched one similar to the one described in the book. After that, I added some lines and squares to the website to highlight the text in the home page and the other pages because of the multiple colors in the background. I set the opacity to small which allows the background to be seen well and the text to be bold enough to read. Now that the text is readable, I put the title and page bookmarks in and created the color and overlay of the text. After the formation of the website was complete, I added the pages, titled them, and added the layout to the page to get ready to put the information in. Once
Even if a website has good information architecture and content, poor design can take away from the two elements and negatively affect the usability of the site. According to Johnson, successful web design is minimalistic and easily readable with font choices and color palettes (39). The design of Sassy Fox’s website is either extremely busy and misleads users or is minimalistic to a fault. Examples of these extremes are the website’s header and user forms.
A website is an essential tool for a business that is expecting to thrive. An efficient, attractive site is a pace-setter. We design first-rate responsive websites, detailing everything whether it is content, color, typography, IA (Information Architecture), UX/UE or e-commerce
In my opinion what makes a good web page? I have been on the net for the last, can 't really believe it, coming to ten years now. From the conception to now, I have been a regular surfer on the web, visiting thousands of pages a month, mostly in search of some thing or another. Most searches have lead to even more searches but some times I come up tops. Having been used to the all text sites of the beginning, and seeing the first implementations of more graphic based sites, there was a three-year lapse where I rarely got to surfing and missed a whole evolution in web page. When I returned in full to surfing, I discovered the face of the internet have started to change. Buttons with
Pages need to be easy for the search engines to find and crawl in order to index the information on them when deciding where to rank them. For the site's visitors, ensure that the navigation links on each page are for topics or products that are most likely what they were coming to your website to find. For hard to find topics, be sure to have a sitemap. This is important for visitors to locate harder to find pages and especially
