OUGD603: Brief 2 - OAC Photography // Initial Website Research

As I have to create a look and feel proposal for the client, I need to do some quick initial research to get some ideas of what the website could look like. This won't be the final design - it might not be anything near what it will end up looking like. It's just a taster, an idea, so we know which direction to head in with the design of the website. 

Pictured above is OAC Photography's current website - it's a wix website, created using a template. I believe the client selected this template as it's quite minimal. Clean, uncluttered and easy to navigate. Below the image is the navigation bar - personally, I think the navbar should be at the top, or to one side. However, you need to scroll to see this nav bar, which shouldn't be the case. 

The website above is one of the stockholm demo themes, which I often use as the base for the majority of my web development, as there are so many variations. The layout is clean and easy to navigate. The nav bar is at the top of the page, below the logo. The double spacing (assuming the horizontal spacing is single spacing) between the different sections makes it easy to differentiate the different parts of the website. Clean minimal button designs are also used, and a simple black and white colour scheme, which fits OAC Photography's portrait style. 

Another example of clean website to draw reference from is Invincible Journeys. A very minimal format. Simple clean text, and a very tidy nav bar tucked out of sight in the top right corner.
