Media Class: Web Design

February 4, 2009

Outdoors

Quirky

Two fairly rough ideas for ways I’d like to see this go. On one hand I want to keep it really casual and inviting, because it’s a coffee shop, but the other half of me wants it to show up ritzy and classy.
One thing is for sure though, I am keeping with a warm color scheme! Red, yellow, orange, browns. Not too strong, generally lower saturation variants of those colors. mmmm. inviting.

Media Class: Website Research

January 22, 2009

Looking around the town for some local restaurants with websites that are in need of some good design… It’s terribly disappointing that so many restaurants are chain restaurants that already have big flashy (no pun intended) websites.

Flat tire Burgers

Beside Flat Tire, I’d really love to make a page for Cafe de Taipei, because they don’t have a website at all. But I’m not sure if I can do that, so i’ll have to check.

Anyways, Flat Tire is, seriously, like a broken down car, in need of some fixing up. Their images have poor quality, the online menu is extremely difficult to read, and the entire website is in need of something to motive people to learn more about the restraunt.

I think this little college and biker restraunt is in need of a woman’s touch 😉
I wonder what we can come up with… hmmm

What’s the competition cooking? Well, let’s take a look at some of the biggest burger places in the country… like.. Whataburger!

Wow. look at that. Clean, simple, easy to navigate, and with inviting colors and imagery.
But Flat Tire isn’t fast food. What About Red Robin, the ever delicious burger joint?

ok, ok. I’ve pretty much stepped all over Flat Tire. So lets see.. bettery imagery, brighter colors… ok. ok…

I’m going to fix this thing up just dandy.
