The Space Jam 2 project is a redesign of the Space Jam website. Space Jam premiered in 1996 and recently, there are rumors that Space Jam will be getting a sequel. The team decided to revive the website for the upcoming sequel and design the site with a modern style and functionality.
My professor assigned a project for IDIA 616 to redesign the Space Jam website. My team had visited the website, and it was a horrible design. The website had a repeated background image with illegible text, confusing navigation, and an unresponsive design. Overall, the site was outdated.
We have started to take a tour of the website and make our observation. Then, we had gathered the information and started the brainstorming session. Obviously, we knew that the entire website had a lot of problems.
First, the website was illegible. The typefaces were bright red and yellow that the text was lost in the background and difficult to read. Secondly, the navigation was confusing. There was a lack of direction, hierarchy, and consistency and visitors will get lost. Lastly, the website is not responsive. Despite that responsive design did not exist in 1996, technology is evolving and websites must be responsive for desktops, tablets, and mobile devices. After we have targeted the problems, we have determined that we need to focus on legibility, navigation, and responsiveness to improve the user's experience.
