Campaign Website second Draft

This is the second draft of my campaign site. I have Changed the colour scheme and the background and went for amore serious look. however, i did keep some conventions of a website the same. The Name is still in the top left, the links are spread even;y across the top and the links to outside contributers and donators are at the bottom of the page. i think that this is a slight improvement over the first draft, however it was too bland and lacked detail. hopefully, i can fix these faults with my final product.

Campaign Site First Draft

This is the first draft of my campaign website. At first i thought it looked okay, however when i moved on to researching the different websites again, i realised that there were many faults with this particular draft.  Firstly, the colours of Pink and black are too bland and they make the website look unappealing and ugly. I also noticed that the photographs that i had taken were not to a good standard. These details can be changed and the new look website will hopefully look a lot better than this one.

Designing the Campaign Site: Sketching ideas

Below are some sketches that i have drawn as rough ideas to what the website will look like. This was a case of jotting down my ideas on paper. I believe that my ideas will develop over the course of the website production, but will always follow the codes and conventions of other campaign websites.

PhotoShop skills development

Today we looked at photoshop and learnt the basics on how to crop, edit and add backgrounds to images. We also had a go on editing one of our previously taken photographs and adding a different background, Below is that particular images and as you can see we took a picture of ourselves and added a background to it. You can also see both images before and after they were merged together.

Target Audience Questionnaire

Today we planned and created a questionnaire for our target audience to answer in order for us to gain feedback and information on what the audience would like to see on the website. The results given to us will help us make key decisions when planning and producing out campaign website. Below is the original questionnaire that we produced before we sent it out to the target audience to be answered. We used terminology that would relate to our audience and also worded the questions in a slightly 'slang' way for the questionnaire to again become more aesthetically pleasing to the audience.

Proposal for Campaign Website

For My Main As website I'm planning to create a campaign site, which raises awareness for Drug Abuse in young adults and teenagers. The name of the website will be ‘oneis2many’. The website will be aimed at young men and women from 14-21 year old. To raise awareness the website will detail how people can get involved in awareness raising.

The site will also offer free posters, leaflets, stickers and there will be merchandise for sale to raise money.
Homepage, Your stories, FAQ’s, Consequences.

School Website Final Product

Media Studies

Today Me and Annie finally finished our preliminary school site and were able to publish it before the deadline. Below is a screen shot of both the home page and the Media Studies page on our website. As you can see we have followed many of the codes and conventions involved with school websites, however, we did put our own little twist on the site by putting the logo n the top right hand corner.

School Website Feedback

We received a lot of positive criticism for our original film. These comments were fair and now we know that we can use those comments and focus on making our website better in conjunction with those comments.
