1 - In what ways does your media product use, develop or challenge forms and conventions of real media products?
The media product I have created is basically a normal HTML website that works normally and is linked to everything also. The website I have created isn’t really anything special but it works perfectly and is easy to use.
The layout, which I have created, is a normal layout with is easy to create but it also looks good and professional. I have taken the conventions from the website ‘Talk To Frank’. I have basically followed the layout, so where the links on the page are, and then the layout of the page itself. One of the main things I have followed is a donate page. I also looked at other websites and they to have a donate page. Having this will raise and help the charity bring money in and help the cause it’s helping out.
The background, which we have used, was our idea. We went around the school and we looked at things which looked warn and where messy. We were going for the messy theme seeing as other drug information websites had gone for this. Once we had got the images which we needed we went back onto the computers, copied the images onto them and then loaded them onto the website and made them fill out the backing of the pages. We played around so that the colours of the images would fit the information on the page, so seeing as marijuana is known as ‘green’, we used an image with green in it.
