Navigation

One website that I'm always pleased with when it comes to easy navigation is dailymail.co.uk. The website has several huge headlines, and then on the right hand side of the page, there are a ton of smaller headlines. The organization of these headlines is very easy to understand. The smaller headlines are accompanied with a picture so that it's easy to get a feel for what the story is going to be about. All around, it's a very easy website to navigate, even when you click through multiple stories because you're always able to return to the home page pretty easily.

Seating Arrangement at a Concert

By on

This image uses shapes in a positive way because it shows the seating arrangement of the North Charleston Coliseum in South Carolina in an organized way. Each box represents a section of seats and the sizes of each box are different. For example, the yellow boxes in the upper deck are bigger than the pink and orange ones. By designing this picture with differently shaped boxes, the viewers are able to better decide which tickets they want to buy.

Week 5, Effective Map of Relations

By on

This chart printed in People Magazine showing the "evolution" of Taylor Swift's boyfriend choices is comically effective in showing who and when she dated each person. The chart uses "second generation labeling" by using a line to connect each figure with the name and stats. The shapes of each person (starting from crouching and moving to an upright position) indicate the progression of boyfriends to the present day.
