I enjoyed this project, and although I don’t necessarily plan on going on to do web design, it has been a fun experience designing and making this website. Since the company I made a website for was my immediate family I was able to get most of the information I needed to get for the site. The only problem was that there was never a very good time to get a brief from them. Lucky I have been a large part of publicity for their company so I already know a fair bit about them. I am not very adapt at coding so I’m glad we were able to use WordPress. We’ve been using on the course, we’ve been using it to upload our work on blog posts, so I was used to using it. I believe that the website I built for this company helps tell people what they do and what they plan on doing. Even though I’ve been using WordPress for the last year I still learned some new key skills to help me improve how I lay my personal and college blog out.
I hope that my client will like their website as I have tried to follow what they asked for. They wanted their site colours to be that of their logo, their logo is a medium pink and white. I feel as if I met this expectation with the site. They asked that information on cast and previous shows be put on the site, this was a must have and so I made sure to have it on the site.
I think if I had been more vigilant in the hours I put in to making the website then it may have had more to it, I also didn’t have all the images I needed to use as they were unavailable at the time of making the site.
This task is usually supposed to be done with a team of four, however, due to the fact that I moved away I had to do this task by myself. This made things slightly more slow however I still managed to finish the site. It was difficult doing it without a team to help, however I think this proves that I am capable of doing big tasks on my own.
In conclusion, at first I was having difficulty making the site but over time as I learned more about how to use WordPress I found it much easier to make changes and add different things to it, like a photo slideshow on the footer. I enjoyed learning new skills however I don’t plan on taking up web design in the future.
