The next step in doing my design was to get my initial ideas onto the computer, so here you will see quite a large jump in progress but at the same time, there are bits missing at this stage as I haven’t yet completely finished adding the content but this is the style so far.
At the top you see a video as soon as you land on the page, it would automatically play as soon as you land on the page, there is simply a button there to represent it being a video. This video will include America propaganda, visuals of war related events and presidents speaking in a reasonably fasted video. It also shows the top of the next section which is about the military budget and how it’s spent. as you can see war and peace are split up into columns with their own colour scheme.
This section is still about the military budget but it shows the individual things the budget did, and could have bought. To keep my design flat I have decided to use icons that represent the appropriate items, I think this helps the simplicity and focuses the viewers attention on the actual facts themselves. There are some sizing issues that will yet need to be covered.
This section is about the economy and how it could about gaining wealth, I have introduced this section with a quote old president of the USA, George Bush which is about how every us citisen should go shopping more, the day after 9/11. I think this really works because even in this early stage, when I show peers for review, they all seem very shocked and say “did he really say that?”. I think this will create more intrigue as to the content of the section.
The footer is where the call to action happens to get the user involved with social debates.
You can see from this early stage the design is coming on nicely, it is taking form with a similar overall theme.
