Site design can encompass many specific areas,
such as layout, colour scheme, graphics, technology
employed and so on. Since my major project
is student orientated, I felt that previous
design versions of my intended site were not
as funky as they should be for this type of
project. For this reason, I have displayed
a selection of material I have researched
to help me in designing that much needed funky
During one of my many travels out and about
the town, I picked up several inspiring leaflets
that were aimed specifically towards students,
such as those used by Northern Ireland Railways.
Many of their recent literature and marketing
campaigns for their new Metro
service make great use of bright bold and
flamboyant colours with quirky characters.

Simpsons Official Website is absolutely amazing.
If I had longer than 12 weeks to produce such
a piece, I would. I find it a great source of
inspiration and this is the type of design I would
like the student survival guide to undertake.
I must be realistic, it would not happen in the
time that we have for Major Project, but I would
like to develop my project website further in
the near future.

use of bright bold colours and modern technology
(Macromedia's Flash) to communicate the correct
informtion to their passengers. It reminds me
of the London Underground map!
