I was asked to create a new website design to run on the WordPress platform for a new movie review website.
The website design was to compete with the likes of IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes. One thing that was noticed instantly from researching these website designs is that they are very content heavy and cluttered, making it hard for the user to navigate and find the content they wanted.
I felt that creating a website design with a more ‘back to basics’ approach would benefit the user experience greatly and chose to leave colour out of the design so the striking imagery of the films would stand out better on the page.
As well as having a full site search, the website also benefits from a taxonomy system allowing users to search by actor, director, production company etc.
