Responses about people’s first impression of the website was very positive, there wasn’t any negative feedback which was a great start!
When asked about whether the cover page gave insight to the rest of the website, only 66.7% people said yes. Even though this was the higher statistic, I was dissatisfied with the results. When asked about the visibility of the welcome link, 55.33% said it wasn’t visible enough. Popular suggestions included centralising it, making it bigger, or making the entire page a link to enter. One person suggested to remove the landing/splash page altogether and got straight into the website, a suggestion which was also made by Chris Allwood regarding my first portfolio draft.
100% of respondents fond the logo visually appealing. This was extremely comforting and reassuring as a logo acts as the first impression of a brand.
This still seems to be a thorn in my side as respondents still found navigation slightly complicated. Although this was still and improvement from the 90% that found it complicated.
CONTACT AND ABOUT ME PAGES
Respondents were 100 satisfied with both pages. A respondent however pointed out a grammatical error on the page which I will rectify immediately.
CLARITY OF SERVICES
80% of respondents said the website made clear what services I offer, however the comments differed from the statistics.
This highlighted that it is something I need to seriously work on. I especially liked the suggestion of including a services section.
ANY OTHER FEEDBACK?
When I asked for general feedback I considered and appreciated all the response however one to stood out me from the rest:
“The file size of the photographs is too large- pages take too long to load. Maybe compress the photos”
This issue is a huge repellent when it comes to websites (slow loading) and could deter several customers. It is an issue I would see to immediately.
So generally feedback for my final portfolio was positive. I will definitely take into consideration all said here and will implement it into my website.
