During Monday’s class, Daniel tasked us with compiling an inventory of elements of an interface of our choice.
A list of items we were asked to include were:
- Navigation – Primary, footer, interactive component controls, etc.
- Images – hero banners, logos, illustrations, photographs, thumbnails, backgrounds, animations,
- Icons – static, interactive, social medias, etc
For this task, I decided to use Nintendo as my example.
This task has helped me to better understand the many different components that make up a website, and what each element is useful for. It also helped me to understand the importance of consistency, and how a brand is defined by it. I can use what I have learned when coming up with elements and designs for my own brand.
