AJ Gottron Mrs. Vyas Senior Project December 7, 2011 Now that I am done with my project I still had one more question that would help me later on. I asked, “How do I make my site or another I site I do in the future more attractive and interactive to the user?” I found some very structured information from noupe.com, a site that writes articles on web design and photography, and the article was titled “7 Key Principles That Make a Web Design Look Good.” The seven key principles are Balance, Grid, Color, Graphics, Typography, White Space, and Connection. These seven focus heavily on the structure of the site. The grid of the site should be balanced and centered with some white space but never too much. This article also focuses on the content like the colors used, the typography and the graphics placed on it. It is sometimes very distracting to have too many colors and it is always very distracting to have too many font styles. When it comes to placing in graphics, they also have to flow with the subject of the page and they have to look like they belong there. It is also important to keep a good among all elements like font, color scheme, etc. For my project site I was able to have good balance between all these principles but they all could be stronger. My site was balanced, had a good connection between the typography, colors, and graphics. But the grid was a little too simple and could be updated in the near future. This had me think a lot more before I start making the website so I know ahead of time what I want it to look like.
