This blog post is a link to the “Soft Launch” of the No’Owie web site. As noted on the site created for this assignment, No’Owie is a fictitious company and the web site was designed as student work. Similarities between No’Owie and any legitimate business are purely coincidental.
In review of my original proposal, I feel I was able to meet the expectations of the client. With the particular platform I used to create the site, I faced a challenge using the embed codes provided by the client for Getty Images. I was able to locate a handful of images that were part of the images offered for embedding on web sites, but in the end opted to purchase a handful of images for the client.
The client had a primary concern related to cost, however I was able to utilize a stock image resource to acquire royalty free images for commercial use – at a cost that would be extremely reasonable to the client. Since his interest was in black and white imagery, many of the photos selected for the client had a black and white filter applied to the images.
The site is extremely clean, using a font similar in style to the font he had provided as an example, the colors selected by the client were used for the navigation and linking within the site. Additionally, a Facebook page was created and connected with his site.
The one item that is still in progress and not yet fulfilled for my client is the “waiver form” intended for clients that wish to use him for transportation services.
The greatest challenge in creating this site was becoming familiar with the platform I was using to create the client’s site. Once I became more familiar, the progress became much more expedient. Along these lines, digging deeper into the platform, there is a lot of customizable options available through the use of CSS. This is something I would like to explore further, and get my fingers dirty in the sand box a bit. I feel this will greatly enhance the type of flexibility a future client might appreciate.
