The Nintendo website supplies both information and great visuals for its products. You can easily navigate through it and find what you want – either by its images or written information.
If I’m going to nitpick and be critical, one downside I can see is that it is a little bombarding on the menu screen. It has a large amount of bright, colourful images all clustered closely together showing up first thing as soon as you click on the website.
Although there is very little negative space on this website, i wouldn’t particularly say that its a bad thing, as the site is very organized and well arranged. It has a fun, playful look to it but has a mature, structured layout – a combination that works perfectly for a wide age range that Nintendo supplies for.
Inspiration from this website for my own would be its ability to blend both fun and information.
Personally, i find that this website has aesthetically pleasing visuals, its pink and white colour theme and fun feminine feel really brings it together. They style of the website represents its products and image of the company.
From looking at the way the website is made shows that they cater to feminine young adults interested in beauty and fashion. Its fairly obvious to gather this from scrolling just through the homepage.
One negative take away would be its images are just that bit too large and overtaking on the homepage. The initial large image scroll through works well, but as that theme carries on further down it becomes rather tiring to scroll through it all. Other than that i don’t have any complaints on the websites design.
Elements of this website that i want to include in my own, is the fun and fairly feminine visuals.
Jenny Harder’s Portfolio Website
I really like this artists portfolio website, the layout is (word other than perfect) and the colour scheme works nicely. The home page is a lot less busy in comparison to the last two websites i have researched. It is very neat and organized, the categories for the work all present on the home page, a beautiful piece of work of theirs as the top banner and easy to read information beneath their profile pic (which is more of their work). There is no fuss or too many distracting elements from the work.
This concept artist has a wide variety of work in their portfolio, with art ranging from character work to backgrounds and such.
The site LingsCars is a cars rental site, but there is a lot more to it than just cars.
Visiting the website LingsCars is an unreal experience. There’s information everywhere, every harsh colour that exists, and an abundance of gifs. In a graphic sense its a mess – there is too much going on, everything is overlapping and clashing – but its not necessarily a bad idea, It’s rememberable and unique, there is nothing like LingsCars. Although there is a lot going on, it does something every business wants: to be remembered. It seems like a terrible idea, but after deeper research and thought as to why this website is like this, its actually genius. It stands out. It grabs everyone’s attention. It turns heads. If this website was pictured next to a few other cars dealership website – LinksCars would be the one people see first. The website itself is one of its biggest marketing points (that and the truck with the missile on it, pictured below).
Ling clearly has a sense of humour that shows itself throughout their website. There are jokes littered on every page. Doing this gives this website and its owner character, making people want to look further for more of its personality.
Overall, its a fun, confusing website that hurts the eyes but you just can’t look away.
