Final marks

Apart from not having an audio visual element - and that would cost you a grade - this is outstanding. So get the AV done. The blog is likewise exemplary. Well done.
Proud teacher.

Street Heat Website Conventions of Charity Websites

Street Heat Website Constructing the Homepage

Here you can see the construction of the Street Heat home page. We have carried out our idea of having warm colours to relate with our charity name. We have made the navigation bar and each link takes you to the named page. The current page in the navigation bar has a shadow so that the user knows where they are on the website. The image in the centre has the words 'we believe a helping hand can change the future' so that the user automatically knows that our website is trying to help people. 

The two white boxes either side of the image will contain the latest news and we will also have a donation box.

Street Heat Website Images for Gallery and News pages

In our News page we are going to talk about a fundraiser - I have recently been to a 'Elvis meets The Beatles' night (organised by my mum) and took many pictures which we are going to use on our website.

Street Heat Website New plans: images

We have begun planning photographs for our charity website and have had to discuss whether we take pictures of real homeless people, or if we stage the images by using normal people pretending to be homeless. We have decided to use real homeless people so that the photographs are authentic however it may be difficult to find someone to agree. We are considering offering food or blankets to the subject as a thank you for their time.
