LC. Devine Gifts

Devine Gifts
 Assignment To create a website for a local business  – Devine Gifts, using Google sites.
Project team I am Lucy C, a student of Millchase Community Technology College.
My team consisted of myself, client and support from my teacher/assessor and TLM.
 Project goal The project goal was to produce a website for a local company of my choice.
 Client requirements The client required a website for their Gift shop, which included the opening times, gifts (products) and location details. The brief was to keep things simple so that information was clear and simply accessible by the customers.
 Method of work  The first step was to create a rough design of the website and then I produced a “Mood Board“ of all my ideas.   Once this initial work was complete I had a meeting with the client, the owner of the shop at the shop. As a result of the meeting I made a list of all the features she required.  The information I obtained together with the initial design brief provided the basis for my work.  I used a plain template and developed it into the theme of the shop. I designed the content using the client’s information provided in the meeting and this helped me put together a Google Sites Website for Devine Gifts.
 Web content Home Page, Contact Page, Gifts Page.
 Software used The website was made using Google Sites, Microsoft Clipart, and digital photos taken by myself of the shop.  The logo was provided by the proprietor of Devine Gifts.
 Teacher comment Lucy has been very focused on creating a website that represents Devine Gifts. She spent an afternoon at the gift shop where she took photos of the displays and has had several discussions with the owner, each time taking note of the important details responding appropriately to the feedback.  Lucy has created an effective website that is to the client’s brief and a very good start for her first attempt in this field.

AM. Blonde Ambition

Blonde Ambition
 Assignment In this project, the assignment was to use Google sites to create a website to promote a hairdressing salon.
Project team I am Alysha M, a student of Millchase Community Technology College.
The team was just me and the client with support from TLM and my teacher/assessor.
 Project goal To produce a web site that can quickly and easily tell people how to find Blonde Ambition and about the services offered. The goal is for a site based on the clients’ stated needs. The client had only simple requirements and so I was left to base my website, its design and its contents on the client’s company’s leaflet and the services they provide. This enabled me to use a basic site template and include the necessary information with scope to add to it as required.
 Client requirements The client requirements that were mandatory included, contact details, an about us page and a price list. I had to agree not to publish the website until the client had tested it themselves and are happy for it to be published. The client also asked if I would be available to make up-dates.
 Method of work  In the beginning stages of this website project, I perpared and planned a proposal of what my website would look like so the client could review it themselves. When it came to me making my actual website using Google Sites, I started with a template but in the end completely changed it. I kept certain aspects of the layout that I thought were good and did not need to change.As I progressed further, my continued work on my site included adding new pages and information on the company to meet the details provided in the client brochure. A title logo was also created to fit with the theme of the website. It was designed to fit in hairdressers as this was the target occupation for the site.
When my website was near to completion, I still had some minor things to fix and complete in the final stages of the project. Here, I mainly finalised and fixed the website, touching up the few things that were incomplete gaining feedback from the client.

 

 Web content My final website included these pages: Home, About Us, Special Offers, Opening Times, Price List and Gallery.
 Software used I created my website using Google sites. I used Microsoft Publisher to create a new leaflet and Paint for the new logo.  Google sites provides a lot of the software needed to build the actual web site.
 Teacher comment Alysha showed a lot of determination to make this website meet the client’s stated needs. She adapted the original template to make the site as original as possible.  She has spent a lot of time creating a logo for the website, which she hopes the shop will want to continue to use throughout the rest of their advertising to provide consistency.  Alysha also recreated their business leaflet so that it would match the web site and was very conscious to get everything looking consistent, the text, colour, font etc.  She has learnt a lot, not just about the technical skills
