Developing the Design

The design of the website is really beginning to take shape, Kweku has been working hard to meet the creative demands of the Forest Flava gang and this week he presented his designs to the group!

We started the session by playing an initial warm up game of Diddly Da! to get everyone energized and in the mood to do some critiquing, then the hard work began!

Kweku ran through the website design and showed the group how he had visualised their concepts and transformed them into a site design. Once he had presented to the group we gave them the opportunity to feedback their thoughts about the design so far.

We set up a wall with print-outs of each page laid out and gave the gang some post-it notes so they could leave comments on each page of the site explaining the parts of the design they felt were working and the parts they wanted to improve on.

We got lots of good feedback that will help Kweku to tweak the design to suit what these guys want for their site.

After this task the gang had a break and stuffed themselves on Subway platters then we got back to work.

Content was the focus of the second part of the session. Last week the guys in the gang worked up various items of content for the new website. So we gave them back their work and asked them to review it and see how they felt about it.

Once they had returned to the articles and videos they produced last week, we offered them our feedback and ideas on the content, suggesting where their might be room for improvement, and praising some great work the talented young press pack had produced!

The session with Forest Flava was really great this week, they are a really bright bunch, and their feedback was all really helpful, giving us a chance to work on the website and ensure it’s really impressive and engaging for the young people of Waltham Forest and beyond!

After all the feedback the gang gave us yesterday, first thing this morning we set to work reviewing the feedback and making some decisions on what to implement and how to take the design forward in response to their comments. Once the review had been done Kweku set straight to work making these changes and its all beginning to look pretty cool!!
