Their is a Reason we all go to These Websites

18 Nov

Apple is all about being new, trendy, and modern. They have a website that does just that as well. Apple is also known for its toolbar, so they use that very effectively in their website. Apple has presented itself as a company of the future and their website is obviously designed to further their hip image. They have tons of content but still have designed a site that is simple to navigate and has an easy eye flow through the page.
Twitter’s website really plays off the image of the company well and also answers questions and misconceptions about Twitter.  Twitter has had to overcome the stigma of “why should I use Twitter?  It is so stupid and egocentric.”  Their website immediately has a link for why, and also a byline for what exactly Twitter does.  It also has a very simple lay out that is complimentary to their company, they are all about simple quick and easy messages (limit of 140 characters), their website is similarly made.

NetFlix is an internet-based company so they must have a very successful website.  Netflix uses a red color in their website that I feel has became to become identified with Netflix.  They have wisely been able to brand themselves with this color red, they do it with the use of their envelopes that anyway familiar with their company will be able to instantly pick out.  And Netflix also has a fairly simple navigation bar that allows viewer’s to quickly select the titles that they wan, since Netflix is a company based on convenience.

Facebook is the website that brought the entire world population together.  They make sure that they visualize that in their opening home page.  It really shows visually the connectivity that Facebook has allowed for people around the world.  It is very obvious to every person who goes to their website the first time that Facebook is a social network that is reaching worldwide.  The website also uses a strong color scheme with complementary colors with the contrast of blue and orange on the colorwheel creating an aesthetically pleasing image.

    Nice work but I wish you would have added a bit more technical discussion using terms we have learned in class.
