Today I took part in the crit. I showed everyone this news story. I explained that I’d been stuck at home over the summer so I had a lot of spare time to research into the subject. I have quite a good understanding of the issues and how the adult industry works. I was a bit worried that the tutors would not allow a subject like this but I was wrong. I was worried my fellow students wouldn’t understand but they did. So that was great! Showing everyone this story got everyone talking and interested.
I showed everyone this site. I explained that my idea would be to make a design for the content below. This site provides all the news about the adult industry and blows the whistle on bad practice. I explained that I wouldn’t be including some of the advertising as it shows pictures which were not appropriate for a college project.
I showed everyone this site. I won’t be redesigning this site. However I will probably redesign Rob Black’s logo which would change the appearance of this site.
I showed everyone this site. The same applies to this site as the one above.
It looks like a template has been used here. I have mixed feelings about the design here. I think it is a big improvement on the design of the Adult FYI site but I still feel Rob would further benefit from custom design as opposed to one size fits all. The typefaces used here look quite dated to me.
Here is Rob’s Twitter. I think Rob could benefit from custom design here too although I won’t be designing for the content here.
After The Crit
After the crit I found this page. THIS is the site I should have shown at the crit. This is the UAWA site. This is the site I want to redesign. There isn’t that much information on this site so I might add some.
