Week 4

Aesthetics, Design, and Branding



These two websites need a serious facelift from what I am seeing from the get-go. Depending on the year both sites were built, they would not last a second in anyone’s eyes in today’s current market. The roverp6cars site is straightforward but design wise archaic. At least they have listed exactly what you can find from them without even possibly calling the company.  Ms.Jami Lin’s site just seems sketchy to me. I am not convinced one bit in what she is selling just from and the “lots of free stuff” part has me baffled. 
Whether they are really selling something worthy to people or not if both companies are interested in improving business I heavily recommend a website do-over. Keeping it simple and design wise relevant could go a long way and most definitely trimming the fat. Not every detail needs to be known about a certain subject. Keeping the customer on their toes will keep them wanting for more. 



The Riverside Art Center and Head Hunter Styling both have an easy to use website. The hierarchy of content is prevalent and the navigation is very simple. The Riverside website has a nice feel to it design wise and you can understand what kind of place this is. Head Hunter’s website is more simple, maybe not as artistic but straight forward. The aesthetics for both websites are great, customers who are looking for a certain haircut will know what they will be paying for through Head Hunter’s site. Artists who want to get involved in art shows and join classes at the Riverside Art Center will know when and how much through the site. As a consumer going to a website that is aesthetically pleasing and use to use is the best type.

Biz or Personal?

Social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram were geared towards personal until mass amounts of people began using it and it became a business platform as well. LinkedIn is very personal in the sense that its buisness oriented and the purpose of the platform is only for that sole purpose. An artistic platform would be something like Tumblr or maybe even Pintrest. Most photographers or graphic designers on Tumblr and Pintrest seem to have a deeper interest into their personal art or work or feature or whatever you want to call it. Although they may be seeking attention and popularity it is more of a one way street on the communication level. 
Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter obviously are big players in the world of business. There are more users, they can target their market and live (real time )information is available depending on the situation. However there are many cases where things are not what they seem to be and pictures and videos can be misleading. LinkedIn wo…

Week 3

In previous years I was never the type to contact a business unless it was a reservation at a restaurants or something on a very light matter. They either pick up or they don’t and thats all. I never have commented or direct messaged a business about my concerns or complaints. I always felt like the message would never get through anyways. I guess there would only be one way to figure that out.
If I had my own business I would try to response to as many comments as possible although. If I could make even one more customers happier and come back then I know I will be doing something right. Criticism is key and tiding up your loose ends could come a long way I believe.

Week 1

I chose the Notable theme because I like the colors and its simplicity. Bold and simple is the way to go. Kind of had to play around with the site to figure it out. Never was too into the whole "blogging" experience so this will be new for me. Not too much to say otherwise!
