Project Completion Date: 6th May, 2016
Getting the right layout and structure for a website like this is very important as it heavily relies on user interaction. Because of this I spent quite a bit of time thinking about the layout of the website before coding it.
To give the website a complete feel, in my own time, I created a logo for the website. I created the logo using Adobe Illustrator. The idea behind the logo was to have the magnifying glass (which symbols search) inside what represents a house/building.
I kept the design of the website clean and simple. I used a hero image and colours to make the content stand out and to improve the overall look of the website. I made the website easy to use by having all the form controls in one place (on the left-hand side).
Overall, I am really pleased with the outcome of this project. Although there is a lot of room for improvement in terms of the search refinement, I have learnt a lot in the few months of doing this project.
