As our unit is coming to an end, we have uploaded our final designs and code for our group website to the dakar server. Since the last Website Development post, the general design and house style of our website have been modified. The images below show our final updated designs for our “Home” and “Register” page. Our “About” page generally has the same appearance as before with very few changes.
A different background colour for our live feed posts has been chosen to make the various offers stand out more. A drop shadow has also been added to the text boxes to give more depth to the design of the page, as well as make it look more professional and visually appealing. Features such as the navigation bar and drop down menus have also been improved. These elements are more responsive and they make website navigation easier and more user-friendly.
In the end, we decided not to use a to use a fancy, detailed logo on our website, as the most important objective of the unit is to maximise functionality and responsiveness. Each team member’s copy of the website and the source code required to make it has been uploaded and is almost ready to be marked.
