No 1 About Project

This project is focusing on researching and developing social online community for reptile hobbyists’.

It is conceptual project designed for desktop however mobile/tablet version is for future consideration. Online communities (forums) that are already out there are out-dated and all have the same look of forums. The priority of this project is to focus on creating social online community that, according to the research, is not out there yet.

This social online community allows users create their own profiles, share information about their pets with other members but also find answers to their questions. Users are able to upload photos of their pets (even have it as their profile photo), upload photos right to their accounts through mobile/tablet devices on the move, create profiles for their pets, find out more information about how to look after them, chat with other members of the community, etc. All that is done in interactive way with modern card design.

No 2 The Process

The process of creating this website consisted of back-end and front-end research, designing trends 2015-2016, competitors analysis,persona, descriptive words, colour pallet, style/mood board, target audience, branding, wireframing, designs, possible future development and SEO implementation.

Even though this is conceptual project, a lot of time was spent on technical side in order to find out if this project is doable. WordPress and Foundation has been chosen for developing the project after further technical research. Providing users with two choices of entering the site – enter as a guest/enter as a member, has marketing strategy as the user entering site as a member can access only limited information and to gain access to more information, registration is needed.

Registration form is done through visual imagery and is focused more on users clicking on provided choices rather than users having to type information in. This was decided to do after doing research about designing principles of a good design where was found out that if any task on the web has a high cost of energy, users are unlikely to complete the task unless the reward for it is also high.
