SMI Home Page Design
This project was a redesign of an existing website, one that was not compatible with every browser and so therefore the website looked different in each browser it was viewed in. For a start up business SMI wanted to relaunch their online presence with an impact and so to match their logo I chose to design the website in a striking and powerful colour of red.
Concepts and Layout
When researching for a project such as this I start with looking at corporate websites online and I take inspiration from images and layouts that I find in my research. The business is all about training new less established businesses and so I created the tag line “Turning your productivity into a well oiled machine” and along with the tag line I decided to go with the idea of turning cogs. I chose three images that would be hot links to each of the three main pages of the website.
❝Annette worked with one of our clients within the marketing field and took on a major challenge within a highly pressurised environment. Her remit was to meet the needs of a number of managers' requests with little or no input as to the desired results and she was tasked with creating numerous presentations, graphics and other elements of artwork using Photoshop, Illustrator, Powerpoint and Word. She applied herself to the role and adapted to the challenge. Her work is of high quality and she possesses a flexible, can-do attitude. Annette's true value lies in her creative work and her desire to produce high quality output. I fully endorse her to future employers and/or clients...❞
