THE BOOK

LANDIS & LOWNEY | INTERFACE DESIGN | SUMMER 2013


PROJECT STATEMENT JOB: Book Promotional Website TARGET AUDIENCE: Modern, post-college females in transition from youth to adulthood. Additionally, readers who enjoy candid, humorous writing. OBJECTIVES: To create an interactive and compelling site that is consistent with the personality of the cover art and promotes author, Alida Nugent and her book, Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse.

OBSTACLES: Creating a site that captures the quirky and fun nature of the book, without appearing overly juvenile. More broadly, driving traffic to the site in order to promote book sales. STYLE AND TONE: Light, candid, and quirky in personality with imagery that mimics the minimalistic style of the book’s cover art and features a saturated color palette. MEDIA: Website

COMPETITIVE ANALYSIS

THECONCERNSOFMINDYKALING.COM/THE-BOOK

Book: My Boyfriend Wrote a Book About Me This site has many quirky and fun qualities, but it lacks a sense of hierarchy. There is an overwhelming amount of text to decipher on each page, which confuses the reader’s eye.

Book: Is Everyone Hanging Out With Me? The navigation on this site is very straight forward and easy to understand. The textures give the site a playfulness, yet the structure is very stiff.

COMPETITIVE ANALYSIS

WENDYSHANKER.COM/BOOK.HTML Book: The Fat Girl’s Guide to Life This site has a very cohesive style with a consistent structure. The illustrations are fun which mirrors the content of the book, but the structure and layout leave something to be desired.

US.MACMILLAN.COM/YOUCANTDRINKALLDAYIFYOUDONTSTARTINTHEMORNING/CELIARIVENBARK Book: You Can’t Drink All Day If You Don’t Start In The Morning This site is very difficult to navigate and lacks a cohesive style. The cover artwork is not very accurately depicted in the design of the site.
