I chose to base my website on drug abuse as I didn't think many people would chose to do this. I am pleased with my website as I feel I have accomplished what I set out to do. I am pleased with all the colour schemes and everything I used although the colour scheme must come across as well thought out and everything on the website has to be in contrast and look professional. Even the position of images, page links and the description on each page must be planned out properly. I am proud of my drugs website as it is professional and well thought out.
When planning out my website I decided the background of the Homepage should be something to do with my campaign. By taking a picture of a brick wall I felt I was representing the kind of place where these drugs are used. I felt that the brick wall could be a place where people are taking and selling the drugs, as it could be a place of shelter for some.
I used a digital SLR camera to take my picture, once I had uploaded it to the computer I zoomed in slightly to enable me to fit words into each separate brick.
I kept the colouring of the website quite simple as I didn’t want my website to look like too much of a happy place because I am trying to convey a serious message, although I do want people to realise that once they become a part of my campaign we can make them happy again.
The language used on my website is quite formal as the audience looking at my website obviously have a serious addiction and want help to get away from this, therefore by using formal and persuasive language I hope I have shown that I am serious about helping people.
