The website I designed for this project portrays the unknown girl’s identity as professional musician/recording artist named Maria Taylor. This specific webpage is the News section and it is intended to provide short, yet important news updates about Maria Taylor and her band. The navigator of the site can easily browse stories by using the giant arrows on either side, and they can view the preview pictures for the past and upcoming stories without clicking the arrows. I designated the top space of the webpage for the navigation bar and the website name. Towards the bottom right of the page I provided links for Maria’s social networking sites (Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook). The background is grey with custom variation of a gradient fade at the top and bottom. Also I included a custom guitar brush that adds to Maria’s identity as a musician, as well as providing peaceful artwork to look at.
