Today we had submitted our Team report for the Assignment 3. In our report we had include all our media aspects which are used in the client website. There are four aspects used in the website. And each aspect has further six sub aspects used in a website.
UI design – User interface design aspects
Our website has plenty of white space around the edges or empty space to give users eyes a break.
our website has a fairly open lay out there isn’t too much repetition so it is less likely to confuse customers by having too much of the same thing on the page.
Our website has a categories to where games are organized according to their price popularity and genre this can help the user find what they are looking for incase they have heard of a game and know its say genre and price and know that it is popular but are unable to quite remember what it is.
We didn’t want to clutter up the screen too much so we tried to keep the website page fairly minimalistic with of course affordances.
Our website puts the most important information at the top such as login fields and help. Lower than that is the user’s profile there downloads and demos. A search bar for when they want to find games. Categories are located to the left where most people in the western world start reading.
