Cody Swann – Assignment 13

So with the semester winding down I have a lot to do in this last week.  I have a final project for my two other studio classes which are taking up a lot of my time a CUMULATIVE test in my gen ed.  This will be the first Cumulative test I have taken since my freshman year.  I have two interviews this week so I have to make sure my portfolio is up to date and looks nice and presentable.  I just realized I forgot to do 3 online quizzes for my gen ed while typing this.  So basically I am stressed and ready for the next two weeks to be over and end in the best possible senario.

The four talent placement agencies I checked out were feature[23], Top Talent Solutions, Creative Placement, and 24 Seven Talent.  Each site has very a different design from the others.  My personal favorite is feature[23]‘s website.  It has a simple yet nice design with good typography, a good color scheme, very well done icons, and the design is responsive.  The header on the mobile style sheet could use some work but other than that everything else wraps and aligns nicely.  Top Talent Solutions is a very generic, more political looking website.  As far as websites it gets the job done but in terms of design it leaves much to be desired.  Creative Placement has a relatively nice design but the design makes the viewer focus on ads due to its left side positioning and the ads are also large.  Compared to the first two sites mentioned it is nicer to look at but is lacking in content.  The final website is 24 Seven Talent.  The home page has a very nice image slider that includes video good pictures and links.  This site is more advertising themselves with pictures and content than the others.  The slider has pictures of happy good looking people doing tasks that people would be assigned to.  So these are all very differently designed websites with the same common goal.

works in firefox, page loads weird in safari.  That is what I get for not testing in other browsers.

After working with superscrollorama I really don’t think there is much use for it in actual web design.  Do not get me wrong, it is a fun little plugin to mess with and manipulate but for the actual worth of it I do not see much.  I feel as if it is to quirky and annoying for actual content people want to be reading.  The greensock tweening on the otherhand is very useful and I am glad I was introduced to it.  I can definitely see myself working with that for future projects and everyone else should as well.

flash presentation

 

The comedian Jim Carrey’s offical website is made with flash and it is

the most interesting flash site I have come across.  The home page is constantly

moving and looks very interesting.  Another good quality about the site is

the transition between pages.  Each transition is a crazy animation that leads you

to a new area.  Here is the link to his site.

I would have to say that dribbble is my favorite website.  Dribbble is a place for to

designers to post and share their current projects with other designers.  Once posting something

other designers can like, comment, or critique the piece giving the designer feed back to

improve their work.  Dribbble is also a good place to find inspiration and resources.  Designers

and developers post liks to resources that they have used or created to help fellow designers.

I also enjoy the overall design of dribbble.  It is sleek, simple, and overall easy to navigate and use.

A designer feels at home as soon as they hit the home page.

I agree with the article because so much of design is now on the web and mobile devices.  I am not one to say that print is dead but I feel that it is safe to say that most design is now in both mediums.  Below is my second redesign of La Quinta Inn & Suites home page.  Not much has changed.  Just some slight rearranging of the body, changing the navbar from a hovering subnav to a drop down style and completely changing the footer to have icons and small descriptions of what I felt were the main goals of the original footer.  I began coding the basic structure of the site.  The url is below.

Cody Swann Assignment 3

I was assigned La Quinta Inns & Suites.  The website left a lot to be desired but also is not a high end hotel like many other hotels in Las Vegas.  So in my redesign I didn’t try to make it something it isn’t.  I redesigned the header and navigation and rearranged the elements in the body.  My end result is a more attractive yet simple design.

Cody Swann Blog Post Assignment 3

Las Vegas.  Sin City.  The entertainment capital of the world.  The city of lights.  Where what every happens there, stays there, except herpes.  People travel from all over to have the time of their lives and most likely make the worst decisions of their lives.  A city famous for ruining people yet everyone is still glad to go and gamble away their life savings.  God, I can’t wait to go.
