Website Design

For my senior capstone class, we had to analyze our portfolios and determine what we were missing from them. From mine, I found that I didn’t have a lot of branding or UX/UI/app design. For my project, I wanted to design a music review/music sharing website. For the name, I combined the terms “music” and “new” to create “Newsic.” For the color palette I tried to do something completely different than typical music-related websites. I felt that purple was a good color that showed creativity and represented the “music” side of things and for the yellow, I’ve noticed it becoming a growing color trend in news media. I wanted the focus to primarily be for the user to discover new music and have everything be categorized for them on the home page. I also designed it so the user would be able to turn on their location settings and discover local bands in their area.
