Eco Warrior Web Page Design.

I had previously designed a home page for the eco warriors top trump cards, as had some of the rest of the group. I decided to make two more pages for the website, i wanted to be able to visually explain how a child would submit their work and did so by creating the page below.

I wanted to make it very simple and using simple worlds so it was child friendly. Using my boyfriends little sisters information i made the page look as if she was submitting her work. She has browsed her computer and chosen her drawing. She has entered her name, age and some information about her character. Once she is happy she can submit her work and we can then transform it into one of the card designs seen at the bottom of the page. She could also safely give us her address or email and we could send her a real hard copy of her top trump card.

At the bottom of the page there is a click through link to view the gallery of other kids word, and here it is below.

Again, i tried to make this page very easy to understand and very user friendly. Clicking teh black arrows with let the images move either left or right like a gallery reel. If the child wants to take a closer look at a card they can click the image at it will become larger, as seen below.

Making the product more interactive by allowing kids to submit their work!

With out top trump card idea, we had decided to make a webpage so that the kids could watch their characters fight online using the data on their cards. We also thought it would be alot more fun if the kids could create and draw their own characters with back story. I decided to try this out by getting my boyfriends little brothers and sisters to design some characters and give them a little back story.

Once they drew the characters i transformed them into top trump cards by adding colour and making them look professional without losing their childish imperfections.

Here are the kids original drawings.

the idea would be for the kids to draw their character with a little information about the character and they could either post it to us or email it via the website. We would then create these styles of cards with them. The child would receive their card in the post and 40 more of their card would be produced and randomly placed in new packs so that other kids will have their character and viceversa.

My boyfriends little brothers and sisters got very excited when i showed them the cards and thought it was ‘soooo coool’ and asked if they could do more, so i do think it would work successfully as a product.
