In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenege forms and conventions of real media products ?
the genre of my website would be a charity, but to be more specific its a cancer charity. one convention of charity websites is to use certain words, to try and get the user to feel amotionally touched, and try and get them to do something about cancer. A convention for of a website for ages 25 + would be to have video's and little paragraphs, also by having pictures this would demonstrate what a charity website can do to make a change. With most websites there logo is within the top left side of the page, i was fond of this so used it as it made my site look for proffesional, this is also a big convention not just for charity websites but for most websites. This also shows the user who you are and so they can notify the brand/logo around streets and on billboards etc. Another convention is the side bar or the bar at the top of the website, these are a well known convention which is liked as it is easy access for all users. the colours i chose to use were baby pink and baby blue, i believe these colours are strong for cancer as they are suttle and eye catching, i also relaised cancer research use pink for breast cancer, for most cancer websites these colours seem to work best. For my logo i photo shopped it in a bolder pink, and put it in the top left corner of each page of my site, the reason why i chose a bold pink is because i want the logo to be more notified by users on my website and even when there out and about. The main convention that i realised with websites is the three column structure to a page, by having links in the left and right column and the middle being the main part of the page. the reason why i chose this is so that it is easy for the user to use, but it does look more proffesional as well. i used emotve language to get the users to want to help stop cancer and find different ways of stopping cancer.
