Welcome to my A2 media coursework blog. My name is Maisie MacGregor (candidate number 0506), and I will be working in group 4 with Molly Sullivan (candidate number 0816), Ellie Brackpool (candidate number 0100), and Mari Leach (candidate number 0440).

To the right of my blog are labels for my A2 Preliminary task, A2 Research and Planning, A2 Construction and A2 Evaluation, and an archive of each individual post. There is also a live link to the Latymer Media Music Video Blog.

Website design & influences

When brainstorming ideas for our website, we decided on several main features we would like:
  • Blog-style: the visitor is able to scroll through pictures, sound clips and links to social media posts 
  • A banner across the top 
  • The links list across the top
  • Colour scheme to match the powder paint in our music video and our album cover (blue, pink, purple)

The inspiration for this came from the websites of existing artists, including:

The Disclosure website has the artist name and links along the top of the page, and three columns of posts including photos, videos and sound clips.

The 1975
The 1975 website also has a blog-style format, allowing the user to scroll through pictures and videos of the band.

The BeyoncĂ© website has a banner across the top and an endless scroll format, filled with pictures and links.

After deciding these features, we came up with a flatplan:

Flatplan for our website
This is a very basic outline of our plans for the website. 
The banner across the top will contain our artist logo, into which we want to incorporate powder paint in the colours of our chosen scheme. 
The main page will be much more lively and engaging, including images, videos, links to social media pages for the artist, sound clips and adverts for competitions. 
In addition to this, we will use a font for the website more suited to the image of our artist, and a blue, pink and purple colour scheme rather than black and white. 
The menu of links across the top will include all essential pages so as not to crowd it - options such as 'about the artist' will have drop-down menus to take the user from the home page to a certain branch of the page.
