ePortfolio design options
Here are my ePortfolio designs. Please comment on them using their reference number.
You are not commenting on the wording, just the overall look and feel!
A plain and simple design using a few brand colours, official fonts and big “web 2.0” type.
Building on 001, this adds a little more design but still keeps it minimal. The icons each side of the box would get more design work for the final version. The top bar remains slight but gains a background colour.
Radically different from the previous two designs. This follows the orangy designs I’ve worked with thus far. I modelled this on those touch screens you get when buying stuff in Argos. Also, mobile phone web apps where screen space is sparse. Top bar gets a mere three items – link home, new stuff, view stuff. The secondary global nav – help, prefs and search are moved away from the main two options.
More subtle than 003. Uses elements of the previous two styles but the top bar gets more items of equal weighting.
Again, this uses bits of previous designs.
Marrying with Moodle. I took David Winter’s current Moodle design style, added some of my stuff whilst changing the colours to suit the more pastel pallette of Moodle.
This one uses Moodle as the main influence, removing the bog text and images of all my previous designs. Possible less ‘web 2.0’ in design feel but strongly aligned with the current OU design direction for Moodle.
