first project in information architecture is to redevelop the website for a newspaper. i have chosen to work on my hometown’s local paper, the examiner.
moving forward i worked on idea 1 to create medium-fidelity digital wireframes
for the design phase i will be adding in all content and flushing out the bar graph/infographic navigation bar on the home screen.
and music. this video looks pretty nice too, so adorable.
website had a few changes with having the image be seen at the same time as the definition and I fixed “hyberbole” and also put in intrinsic and extrinsic ethos.
and with the gun poster i went back to my original by taking out the caption which i thought was unnecessary because it didn’t really add much. the image really just speaks for itself and clearly demonstrates topic of the poster.
youth, joy, entertainment, and optimism; the essence of one shirley temple. for branding this pop icon i focused on contrasting and layering her with the depression because, essentially, the people hid behind the little girl’s smile to make it through the rough years of the 30s.
working on editing photos of the shirley model and creating the key note
and also changing up my artifacts, still thinking about redoing my symbol as well
this is fun. now we transformed print into digital using handy dandy mag+. keeping with the concept from the magazine, i worked with layering shirley with the depression. i added in 3 videos: one of the depression, one of fdr, and one of shirley singing good ship lollipop. and also included at the beginning the audio of the lyric you gotta s-m-i-l-e, and then at the end put in a panning timeline of events of shirley with events of the depression. video of the app in action soon to come.
i have now got the separator wall built with stairs to the elevated floor. the entrance wall is curved, and the wall behind is also going be as well. that wall is going to have an image of the depression, then cut outs of shirley with openings for visitors to plug in their faces, will stand in front. and then the back large wall is still going to say ‘you gotta s-m-i-l-e’ and there are going to be circle mirrors arranged across the wall so visitors can practice their smiles and their shirley faces. and then there is the last long wall….i think i’m going to make a timeline with her movie career mixed with the events of the depression to bring some sort of quantitative aspect to the space.
website is here.
from the very first crit way back at the beginning there are quite a few changes. i took another route with different typefaces, and completely changed up the semiotics page. the website is reliant on rollovers and the viewer’s interaction.
Right now I’m working with the idea of hiding behind her smile like I did for the magazine article. On further development I plan on using transparency or vellum to make layers of images and text. There is a display of the dolls she has been made into, and also a screen on platform a few step up where her film or short bio would be playing.
