Repost: What’s Going On?
“Today, I will be reviewing blacknegative.com. After looking through this several times, I have concluded that this is probably just a design website. There is no real content. It’s just to explore designs for people to build websites to make them be successful on the internet. This website does not meet any criteria for principle of perceivability. It took me a while, and even now I’m just guessing it’s a design website. I mean, all people have the challenge of just finding out what this website is about. Because here, we have the ‘Fantastic Adventures of George Sock’, while we have financial investments here. So, there’s really no consistency on this website. My recommendation for this website would be add a purpose of what this website is; that way, when people go through it, they’ll know what they’re looking at. And have these [designs] as examples, not just actual pages. And even the menu is an example. I turned the sound off because it was annoying, but if we unmute this, there is some serene music in the background. I would try to say use sound more effectively here. Don’t have this background music, but instead, when you have paragraphs [ex. the purpose of website], just have a voice thing for people who cannot see. I would say that a good thing is how the cursor changes, so that I know I need to slide here, I know I need to click on something, I know I need to exit out of something, so that helps. But other than that, it needs a lot of work.”
