The tutor suggested we take a vote to see which website we thought the best. As you can see the class voted that Pearlfisher is the best.

The worst website was voted for and it was Jake Tilson.

Sagmeister won the vote for the best designs.

Looking at miltonglaser.com

  • What is the immediate ‘feel’ of it?

 Its clean, simplistic and looks professional.

  • How are images used?

 If you click on ‘The Work’ it loads this page. Each picture is a link which you can click on to see the corresponding design.

I was really glad to see that this website had a large space for the design and a smaller space for the text.

  • Choice of typefaces?

Arial 12

Arial 9

Arial 15

This section is an interview and you can see there is a lot of type. I don’t understand why the designer didn’t at least put a space in-between each question and answer set. Instead its all lumped together which makes it look really unappealing and over-whelming.

  • Navigation – is it easy and straightforward or difficult and frustrating?

This part of the website was really annoying. I was trying to read the type on the designs and the next design kept loading and appearing before I’d barely looked at it. I found this really frustrating.
