For our midterm requirements in WEBDEV1, we were asked to fill up some sort of concept paper about our final project. Our professor provided the so-called “project sheet” and we were just asked to fill it up, and also include 3 design studies for our final project. Here are some details about it:
Title of Website
The Walled City
“Explore Intramuros, Experience Heritage”
Objectives of the Website
The website aims to showcase selected, wonderful sites found in Intramuros, Manila. It seeks to entice local and foreign tourists to visit the ‘Walled City’. The website will be a great place for tourists to plan their tour in Intramuros by being able to view the hot spots of the said place.
The website will have a modern, clean, minimalistic tone to exude some sort of respect (due to its history) from its visitors. However, there will be a touch of antiquity within its modern tone to have a reminiscent feel of the past.
Hybrid layouts of ‘Clean’ and ‘Visual Impact’ have been chosen for this project to fully encapsulate the concept of ‘Modernity with a touch of Antiquity’. A ‘Clean’ layout was chosen to make navigation (for an ‘Average’ or ‘Below Average’ computer user) easier and to make the entire layout free of clutter since this the website –after all– is a historical location that demands respect from its visitors. ‘Visual Impact’ has been chosen to showcase beautiful imagery of Intramuros.
The designs are still not final, but my professor already liked my second layout. I have to revise it for my own personal preference.
