Degree Project Midterm

The whole idea for this degree project is to reach out to someone who is thinking about suicide. The best way to reach everyone is online and through advertising. The site will offer the person outlets of who to call and talk to if they need help. There is also a place for people who know someone who is thinking about suicide and informing them about how to handle the situation in a calm manor and to seek out help as soon as possible.

The layout for the website is going to be simple here is an example of a rough wire frame to see how it looks in simple form. I want the user to be able to access the numbers or video as soon as possible because they are the main people the website is catering too. The second group is the ones that think someone could be in trouble.

To update on my project I have found a name for my website its name is safe. The word fitting with the function of the website. These are some tests of different fonts to see what would fit the name as well as the use of it for the website.

The font chosen was Filosofia OT Italic though I started thinking what would happen if an icon took place of the name and could be used to brand all the items both on and offline.

These are some icons i have been working on for the website I feel that some of them work but others are not working for the over all appeal so they can use some help.

SE: Auto Show

This photo shows interaction within the auto show. Asking the viewer to get involved.

Another photo of people engaging in interaction at the auto show.

This one I thought was interesting because it attracted the younger audience to come and participate in the interactive game known as foosball.

This shows a car on display but the poetic part about it is the display that it is in. All wood display placed around the car almost giving it a home like effect.

This is persuasive in the fact it is showing the awards that this car company has made. This would entice the viewer to wanting to buy a well made car.

This is practical in the fact that viewers can choose the color of their car.

This is persuasive because nothing beats a man selling the car over a boom mic.

This is persuasive in showing all the viewers that Chevy offers so much more than any other car company.

This is persuasive in that the car company is showing the viewers who maybe outdoors people that this car is perfect for biking and so much more.

This is poetic because it is showing jeep in a beautiful landscape.

This one is poetic in the fact that it is showing Toyota with a image of nature. this could mean that Toyota is nature friendly or many other positive things.

This bored giving all the information on this Toyota is practical anyone who was wanting to buy a car would look at the miles per gallon this baby can take.

This is persuasive yet practical allowing the viewers to see what makes ford unique but also relating the icons to each individual car.

Practical showing the map of the arena this is being held in.

Practical showing icons for people to know where the bathrooms are located.
