Develop and produce your own professional website that expresses your personality, brings together the multimedia aspects of your web presence and displays different skills, hobbies or interests you have. Your site should contain appropriate material and not break copyright. To enable you to do this you will need to show understanding of WebPages, their structures, protocol and design.
My mission is to design a website which conveys my hobbies, interests and personality to an varied age range whilst also being to a professional standard in terms of consistency, multimedia content and complies with W3C criteria. Images that are relevant to the page should be included in the making of my website and must be explained to a sufficient standard. These images, multimedia content etc. should not infringe copyright laws, this can be done by using personal images or using copyright / royalty free images. The target audience for my website is 13-21 year old males. This is due to the fact that I am a typical 16 year old guy who likes fast cars, big guns, loud music, generally just socialising and sleeping like most guys my age. So it makes sense that my website being personal to me would appeal to that demographic.

Layouts: The reason I have used this layout is because it is a conventional layout of portfolio websites; Header, Main content & Footer, also I feel that the audience will find it easy to find content and navigate through the website efficiently & with ease. Housestyle: The House style I have used reflects me and my personality. As Blue is my favourite colour & I Like to doodle also the doodles connote my childishness . My target audience is predominately male so I have used blue as my main colour as it associated with the male gender.
