In this report I will discuss the Strengths and Weaknesses of my site.
The difference there is between my PowerPoint and the actual
website. I will also talk about why I chose my colours and the colour
scheme and how it was suited to my hero. Last but not least I will
also talk about the general overview of the website.
One of my strengths is the consistency of my website. Each page has
the same layout and it suits my chosen hero. The banner was edited
in Photoshop to give it extra detail to make it stand out. Another one
of my strengths is how my buttons and action linked pictures/boxes
will allocate the user to the desired section. For example when you
press the IMAGE box on the media page it will take you to the
portfolio of Deadpool images and the same rule applies to the
VIDEOS box. I also believe that the colour scheme chosen is best
suitable as it is the colour scheme of my hero; the text is all white
representing his eyes and the red colour in general applies to his
awhole outfit/suit with the black trimming.
The text is at a reasonable size and it is sans serif making it easier to
read for my target audience.

One of my biggest weaknesses I that the Background is rendered at
3500x3500 Pixels in dimension which makes loading the site take a
while and whenever I edit the site on Dreamweaver it also causes lag
and delay. To be able to solve this I had decreased the size of the
Background. The buttons which were meant to have a rollover image
displayed while the mouse hovers over it is not active on 3 out of the
5 buttons. Another weakness is that there is not enough content on
the site but most of it being linked to other sites such as
www.FolioHD.com or www.Comixology.com which leaves my site
empty where I could have resolved this by adding a few comics on
the site with details on how much it was, a description and a picture
for each of the products.
What I could have improved:
When I was making my background on Photoshop I should have
gotten the dimensions from Dreamweaver so I could make the exact
size. Initially I made the Photoshop page 3500x3500 in pixels which
was far too big and caused lag every time I loaded Dreamweaver
with it. Another part of my site that I could have improved was that
only the first and last button altered rather than all the buttons
which made it look unprofessional.
My mouse is on the comic’s button and it doesn’t change to the
Mouse over image version of that button like the biography one.
When I finished my website I tested that all the links, hyperlinks and
hot spots worked and I was satisfied with the result. I also made sure
to check that none of the linked pages had been down or offline. The
banner was my favourite part of the website as it stands out and it
had been made originally by me.
In Conclusion if I were to rate the site out of 10 id give it a 6 as it was
quite sloppy and done in a little amount of time with the better parts
of the website such as the banner, the background and the content
but not the actual UI such as buttons and links etc.
