Roll Over Effects

When you click on this link you have to click on flavors at the top to get to this screen.

This website has very interesting roll over effects. When you roll over the different types of vodka, they move up and a flavor pops up next to it. If you click on one of the bottles another page pops up. At the bottom there are the bottle caps color coded. You can roll over each of them and they pop up with the flavor it is.

I think this is so cool. It is a very simple effect that allows the user to be more interactive with their products than a lot of other sites that are out there today. The colors also pop and I think overall, this site is one of the best sites I have seen!

Trendy Website for the future

This is a site that designs units for small businesses. I would have never guessed that this site makes units for small businesses. When I opened the site, it really caught my eye. The colors are so bright and the image of the building in the background was very interesting to me.

I have seen a few of these sites with similar styles. I'm thinking that this is becoming more and more popular now. Many sites have some kind of video that allows the photos to scroll across the page. The large photo in the background really allows the viewers to see the "whole" picture, not just a tiny pixelated photo that you can't make out. It is a very interesting design element and I believe that this will become a new trend for years to come.

Breast Cancer Research

This is just one of the many websites dedicated to Breast Cancer support. I found this website while doing research for project 3. After thinking of ideas and things I wanted to have on my website for breast cancer support, I found this site very heplful. They had many different links to register and share your own story about how breast cancer has affected you. This site has anything from basic information, to chats, to sharing your story, to donations. They had almost everything you can think of to raise awareness, get help, and be supportive to people affected by the disease. It was very easy to navigate for me and I found the many things I was searching for.

This site was well organized and very effective for its users.


How To Website

I found this site while trying out how to figure out how to make drop down menus. I began to read through all of the links and found this site really helpful. There are some situations where the site wizard takes you through step by step on how to create things for your website. Other situations he just gives you some code to use, and it really does work properly. I will always go to this site to find some help when I am stuck with creating a webpage.
It is not the best designed website that's for sure but I hope this will help anyone who looks at it.


E-commerce Website

I found this really interesting website. When I first clicked on it, I went to click off of it because I saw a bunch of Chinese writing all over. But the imagery really caught my eye. I began to look around a little bit more and saw some English writting. I began to navigate through the links on the pages and realized that even though there is a lot of text I cannot read, I still understood what I was looking at. It is a great idea to have two different languages on the site so more people can undertsand what is being sold.

As I went through the website I found that it was very visually appealling. The way that the images came in and out of the website were very professional looking and did not distarct me in any way, like some that pop out at you. There were some very nice transitions happening.

I thought it was a very unique website that sold chocolate for all 365 days a year.
