Blog Prompt #6: Website/design analysis

“his/her  [the writer, the dead author, the composer, the speaker] only power is to combine the different kinds of ‘writing,’ to oppose some by others, so as never to sustain herself by just one of them.”

For this post, spend some time browsing the Web and identify a website whose look and feel you really like. (Try to find a site that is new to you — a google search for “web design galleries” might be a place to start.) Think about the choices made by the designer (layout, colors, typography, visual concept, navigation, etc.) and write a detailed design analysis of the site. What makes the site “work” for you? How are different components of the site working together to produce a particular feel or effect? What is its rhetoric (ie. purpose, audience, argument, effect and affect)? What might you take away from this site design as you think about your own web design concept? As always, please include relevant screenshots and links for the class.
