Logo Development

So for an assignment on screen design we, one aspect was to design a logo for the theoretical website that we would produce. The original Logo looked like this:logo

while the newer logo variations that have been made look like this:

logo 2

The differences made was changing the location of the text. As the issue was where to put the text as, when the logo is shrunk the text would be unreadable (which to be perfectly honest wasn’t an issue to begin with as the text wasn’t meant to be pinnacle to the design but just something to add “character”). The new logo shows two different variations. it is intended for its use in different settings with the text sitting inside the logo (above the head and on the blue) and when it is a smaller size the text will appear above the logo. the change in the text colour is also made so it can fit any site colour/where colour clashes so the logo will be used effectively as possible.

Users and their Scenarios.

This week’s lecture is on the topic User Scenarios. Which is a breakdown of all the steps a user would use/do when they are using your site. The example given is about a woman named Angela who wanted to find her favourite coffee shop in an airport she is not familiar with.

We are then shown the steps she would take, uses a device that lists all the coffee shops in that airport. She then selects which coffee shop she wishes to visit and then is shown a map with a directory to the said coffee shop. The lecture is an extension of last week’s lecture which is about user persona’s. so, there isn’t much to write about this week’s lecture as it is really all self-explanatory when designing a website as its focus is how will a user use the site and how simple/easy will it be for them to use it?
