Header Sidebar & Navigation Buttons. Brief introduction Here is an example of a terrible portfolio style website, it has a really cramped up layout and poor conventionally. http://poyileung.wordpress.com/
As you can see here, the typeface is small, white and has been placed on a dull background, which is making it hard to read. Again, here the typeface clashes with the colour of the sidebar which causes a great difficulty to read. An error that hasn’t been fixed on the homepage indicates a poorly designed website, here the drop down box extends into the brief introduction covering some of the text. The appearance lacks colour, it has no vibrant colours . Even though the colours used are consistent they are dull. The typeface is far to small and the colour clashes with the background, Accessibility for a person with a bad eyesight would be a cause for concern too. http://poyileung.wordpress.com/
Header Main Sidebar A lot of space as been wasted in both of these sections. http://poyileung.wordpress.com/
The navigation bar used on this website is bad and too wordy, users viewing this website would not find it easy, having said that it is however consistent to the rest of the website which is good, but navigating through this website isn’t too easy and could easily stop the audience at the first page and make them return to their search results. http://poyileung.wordpress.com/

http://www.45royale.com/ Navigating this portfolio has proven to be easy and doesn’t cause any confusion, the typeface used is very clear to understand, the vocabulary is pretty vague and is an overall good website in terms of navigation and is suitable for its intended audience. The navigation would still be easy to use whatever the circumstances, so accessibility is not a problem.

http://www.finchleywebdesign.co.uk/ The main part of the site is the only thing that appears to change, because the designer as kept so consistent and structured. it looks that way to avoid confusion and give a professional look. The use of the hands holding the main part is a very good appearance technique, it suggests the person trying to show the audience is holding it up in front of them. This makes the audience feel more welcome and makes them feel as it is directed to them. The housestyle chosen was a good choice, It is clean, professional and consistent. The typeface is easy to read.
