Sorry for the late post! I a lot of trouble with my internet connection yesterday so I couldn’t upload the assignment on time!
Moving on, here is the first assignment:
Now it’s your turn to create your very own website wireframe.In the last assignment, you had to come up with a list of 10 questions for a briefing form. I would like you to now fill in this briefing form, take the answers and create a wireframe for the site.This wireframe do not have to be a wireframe for your current Mandatory Assignment (Product Website) it’s purely for you to practice your skills.You can choose if you want it to be a lo-tech or hi-tech architecture. Regardless of which method you choose, I would like to see as much detail as possible. Also, please write a short paragraph to explain why you chose the lo-tech or hi-tech option.Please upload this activity to your WordPress blog.
What kind of visitors are you expecting on your website? (Consider their income, interests, gender and age.)
This question helps you to understand the potential visitors better. If you know who your target audience is, you can plan the website design and development in a way that would appeal to them. Obviously a site for teenagers will be very different from a site for working moms or businessmen.
- Folk som er interessert i kunst
- Vil ha informasjon om åpningstider, medlemskap og arrangementer
- Er interessert i kulturliv og kunst
What actions do you want visitors to take on the site?
A website can sell products, provide information, educate or encourage a visitor to make a phone call or fill out a form. Depending on the client’s needs the website structure, functionality and design can vary substantially.
- Information about opening hours
- Information about events
- Form( to subscribe to the gallery )
- Information about the different exibhits
- About us
- About the artists
- Sosiale mediaer
What is your deadline for completing the site? How big is the budget?
These questions help you manage the client’s expectations. Your purpose is to set clear and realistic time frames, which are linked to the budget. In other words, your client can’t expect you to build an extensive website in a day’s time. And they can’t pay for a beat up old VW Beatles and expect a Porsche.
- Normal budget, no deadline
Who will be the contact person for this project?Sometimes big companies have more than one person working on a project. Since people have different opinions and ideas, this could get quite chaotic. Ask the client for one contact person that you can deal with if you have questions or need feedback.
- The Gallerie’s Principal
What do you NOT want on your site in terms of text, content, colour and graphic elements?
Sometimes it is as important to know what your client doesn’t like as it is to know what he or she does like. This can help you get a full picture of what the client has in mind for the site.
- Clutter, to many colours or
How should approvals or presentation of projects be handled?
this makes it easier for you both in the long run
- 1-2 meetings each week
Present your business, what do you love about it and what are you most proud of?
the answer of this question will give you tips on what content is the most important to include in the page and how the page should look to represent their bussiness
- The art museum is a perfect place for cultured life. We think it is important to perserve the culture experiences in society, our museum works towards this goal by providing a place where people can learn, reflect and be inspired by todays and yesterdays artists.
What level of control do you really need over your site’s content?
( this will be important when choosing how to build the site so it is user-friendly but also customer friendly. ask about what kind of control they need)
- Need to post about new events
- Communication with clients/visitors
what is the exact motive and reason for the new design or for creating a website for your business?
( is the other one outdated, why do they think so, Do they need to advertise on more places for their products, are they trying to get a wider target audience… The reason might help you solve the problem).
- We want to provide people with more accecible information about the museum and everything that happens here, and reach out to more people in general.
What tone or image do you need to portray?
- A profesional yet open image that inspire and attract people to our site.
Here are the wireframes to the site I chose, which was a site for a museum and art gallery! I chose to make a lo-tech wireframe because this allowed me to be more flexible and creative.
