Week 4A Aesthetics, Design, and Branding


For my research to identify potential problems with websites I chose https://jamilin.com/ and http://www.roverp6cars.com/. As the main conclusion, I feel that both websites would benefit from understanding the “less is more” principle.

Week 3B - Communication - Business & Consumer Part 2

Taxco 925 Mexican Silver Store
Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram
None of the social media is up to date. Most of them had the last post over a year ago. Only Facebook has a post this year but that is also from March. Twitter was active between 2012 and 2016. In the last two years there were only two posts per year. Before that they posted often, sometimes every day, sometimes weekly. The Instagram account was only active for 3 months in 2013.

The business used some of the social media platforms more frequently than the others, but it seems like they tried different platforms and just quit, stopped using them one after the other. When they were active, they posted nice pictures.

Week 3A - Communication - Business & Consumer


I have to tell you that I have never written a comment on any social media. Neither positive nor negative.  The most I did is “liked” content in a company`s Facebook account. Unfortunately, it doesn’t mean that I never had a bad experience with any company before, but in these cases I either wrote an email, called them up, or just let the thing go. I think I didn't comment before because of the cultural difference in the way I was brought up. For a long time, I felt it wouldn’t make a difference, the companies would not care. Nowadays I see that social media is a really important platform and more and more companies are starting to pay attention to what costumers are saying about them. Also, people read about the companies before they choose a product or a service. Social media can help me and future costumers too.

Week 2A - Overview of Social Media

It is almost impossible to live in today’s world and not use some kind of social media. My generation grew up not knowing what the internet really was, and we did not have mobile phones. I got my first mobile when I finished high school. The first social media site I joined was Facebook and I was already working by that time. However, I think nowadays, if you have a smart phone, there is no way that you are not using one or two (or a bunch of) social media platforms. Most people mainly use them just for personal use, but more and more people/companies are also using them for business purposes. I still only have a few accounts, but I am in the process of learning more and more about the different ways to utilize the power of the social media. I have noticed that some platforms can be used better for personal use and some are dedicated to be a business platform. But the majority can work both ways. Let me share my thoughts with you about these social media platforms.

Week 1A - Why did I choose this design?


I am a first-time blogger and I have to tell you I have never followed any blogger before. I read one or two posts here or there but never continuously followed anybody. So, this world is new to me. Therefore, when I logged in to Blogger I started to check every single theme and all the background pictures that are available to have a feel for it. Most of the background pictures I did not feel connected to or I wished it would be a little different in some way. I shortlisted some of the them and I decided to sleep on it. The next day when I looked at the shortlisted picks again, I came across one that I had not noticed previously. I started to play around with it, and I felt connected. This is the design you can see now.
