web art



My definition of Art is anything that holds intent, this not limited to the intent the artist imbues into the object as pointing out the intent already contained is also a valid. With this idea that art doesn’t need to be formed directly out the artist’s hands comes the question of randomness and its place in art. looking back at the ancient Greeks and their concept of muses in which there was an acceptance of uncontrollable factor attributed to the artist’s muse, a spirit whose aid or lack of it was believed to be the reason for good and bad work. In modern day when we work with digital tools there is an amount of control we are giving up to the computer which mirror the ancient Greeks belief in muses.

Site Revision Project

I’m redesigning the podcast network Maxium Fun website.

It looks like a preset website, the fact the navigation bar is in the dead center and real small is not great plus it is not interactive. also, the doubling down on the donate buttons is not done well and seems to be more a hotfix then a design choice.Screen Shot 2018-04-13 at 2.21.31 AM.png

doesn’t respond to window size changes.Screen Shot 2018-04-13 at 2.14.42 AM.png

is not fixed to the top.

also, it changes the top banner to whatever show you click on losing all navigation and branding, also can’t get back to the homepage.

each ep is in blog post style so you get a title a picture the details then finally the audio player. which is fine when the details are short.Untitled-1.jpg

but quickly becomes tiresome when they longer.

the donate page magically has a better banner plus the link to the member’s area which is something you should have on the homepage’s navigation bar because its better for members and also to be a silent rememinder that there are rewards to being a donor.

Maximum Fun target audience is 25 – 34 because of the more entertainment based podcasts and the fact that they have monthly donation-based model makes them need to target people who have disposable income.

Nerdist has a fixed navigation bar that has interaction, it even resizes when you scroll down, the idea that it also has room to feature content is nicer than just a chronological list of what been posted.

Headgum has this nice list of all the podcast with a short description and play button right there so you can just click it and start listening without a redirect.Screen Shot 2018-04-13 at 2.42.52 AM.pngScreen Shot 2018-04-13 at 2.43.00 AM.png

Gimlet has a pretty nice just image gallery of podcasts which has a nice feeling of exploring the options.

The work I will be Critiquing is Devon Wayman’s dynamic animation.

In the turn and jump lacks anticipation he turns then jumps with minimal bending of the legs or compression of the body, on frame 35 his arms go straight back as if he falling but he curls up and actually jumps this looks odd because it feels like his weight has already gone off the edge.
