Logo – The logo gives the user a first impression of the business. – The logo promotes the business professionally in the market. – The logo helps in attracting potential customers and client to the business. – The logo gives a unique and innovative identity to the business.
Navigation Bar (Navigation Button) – Allows users to navigate website – Allows users to find the information they want Roll Over Button – Allow users to navigate to specific areas of the website – Help promote/advertise specific areas of a website – Act as a visual navigation system
Advertising Banner – Provide information about a product/event/website – Change behaviour – Anti-drinking/Anti-smoking – Attract attention/traffic – Bright, colourful banners with animation, video and sound can grab your attention and influence you to visit a website/link – Persuade user to purchase a product – Persuade user to join something. – Gym/fan club/school/newsletter – Entertain/Engage – is the banner interactive?
The graphic is eye catching and simple. The graphic is very good quality and suited to the topic of the website. The graphic is an appropriate size for the page size and layout. The image used as a background behind the text looks professional and was very effective. The text, link and background colours were clear and easy to read, they complemented each other well. The text colour was effective against the background colour and made the page look professional.
The graphic was to big in comparison with the size of the page. There is no Alt text. The graphic took a long time to load/display on the page. The graphic was not positioned/aligned appropriately on the page. The graphic is irrelevant to the website content. The pale text was difficult to read against the pale background. The link colours were very hard to read/see. Red text against a green background is very difficult to read.
For this section you need to combine your positive and negative comments into a couple of sentences. E.g. – The advertising banner was very effective at advertising the new Nike trainer. The images and colours used attracted my attention and made we want to purchase the trainer. The banner could be better if it included information relating to the price of the trainer.
