Recycle GB Creations
Introduction In this presentation I am going to showcase all of the graphics that I have created for the recycling website Recycle GB. I will use Macromedia to create my graphics and each of them will fit in with the website by using a similar colour scheme to it. My graphics will all also fit in with my house style, which is a mixture of greens, white and black, with the font Arial and the sizes varying.
Software Used Rollover Buttons & Navigational Bar: I used the program Macromedia Fireworks 8 to create my Rollover Buttons and Navigational Bar. This software allowed me to create buttons with pop- up menus. Advertising Banner: I used the program Macromedia Flash Professional 8 to create my Advertising Banner. This software allowed me to create an animation.
Tools Used Rollover Buttons: New Button Text Colours (Eyedropper, Paint Bucket, change colours etc) Navigational Bar: New Button Pop-up menu Text Vector Rectangle Tool Colours (Eyedropper, Paint Bucket, change colours etc) Advertising Banner: Timeline Effects- Blur, Transform, Transition Tween- Motion & Shape Colours (Eyedropper, Paint Bucket, change colours etc) Text
Rollover Buttons The purpose of my rollover buttons is to allow users to navigate around the Recycle GB website quickly and easily. When a cursor hovers over the buttons they change their appearance. The buttons will to navigate to the Home Page, About Us and Contact Us. The target audience for the buttons is young adults living in their first home. I have made this appropriate for them by using a professional design with a bright colour scheme to make it more appealing. The colour scheme/ house style I have used is greens, black and white; this is so that it will fit in with the Recycle GB website’s colour scheme. The colours are also associated with recycling and being ‘green’/ environmentally friendly. My font size is size 26 Arial and my font colour is light green/white with a black outline. My buttons are no more than 30 pixels high and 200 pixels wide so that it can fit onto the website.
Here are my Rollover Buttons. The first screenshots are the up state of the button and the second are the over state. As you can see the two states differ in the ways that I stated. 1 2
Optimised I optimised all of my Rollover Buttons for the Recycle GB Website. I did this by clicking the export button on Macromedia Fireworks 8. As you can see the exported files are much smaller in file size when compared to the PNG file. This means that the images will load much faster on the internet page.
Navigational Block The purpose of my navigation block is to allow users to see the areas that they can visit on the Recycle GB website. The target audience for my block is young adults living in their first home, so I made the font modern yet professional, I also didn’t make the colours too bright so that they don’t put off those who look at them. I used a colour scheme of greens, white and black to fit in with the Recycle GB website. I have also kept the font in Arial, as this is my house style and the font size is 16. The font colour is white/green with a black outline, except for the pop-up menus as I cannot add an outline to the text on them. Each button in the block will be 175px by 30px and I am making 5 different buttons, so my overall box size will be 175px by 150px, this is so that the buttons and the block will fit onto the website. I used the vector rectangle tool to create a rectangle which acted as the background for my block.
Here are the stages of my navigational block. 1 is a screenshot of the block before a mouse is hovering over it. 2 is when a mouse is hovering over the title of each area; which in turn makes the Pop-up menu appear. 3 is the Pop-up menu when the mouse hovers over the Pop-up titles
Optimised I optimised my Navigational Block for the Recycle GB website. I did this by clicking the export button on Macromedia Fireworks 8. As you can see the exported files are all a significant amount smaller than the PNG file. This means that uploading the different files onto the internet will be much faster, and in turn the internet page will load faster too.
Advertising Banner The purpose of my Advertising Banner is to advertise the website for Recycle GB, by appearing on websites as an animation. The target audience for my banner is young adults living in their first home, so I made the font modern yet professional, I also didn’t make the colours too bright so that they don’t put off those who look at them. I used a colour scheme of green and white to fit in with the Recycle GB website. I have also kept the font in Arial, as this is my house style and the size of my font varies because of the length of the writing I used. The font colour I used is white, which is also apart of my house style. The physical size of my advertising banner is 445pixels x 80pixels. The file size of my advertising banner is 11.9 KB (12,206 bytes), which means that it is a small size in comparison in terms of an animation so it will load quickly on an internet page.
Optimised I optimised my Advertising Banner for the Recycle GB website. I did this by clicking the export button on Macromedia Fireworks 8. As you can see the export is going to be compressed making it smaller but it will still have a high JEPG quality. This will allow my Advertising Banner to load quickly and easily on the internet.
