Inspiration in a unique perspective
"Look for and document some examples of presentation/documentation
styles that your term project may take as inspiration."
This site is a technology blog site that nerds around the world can comment, check up on and vote on. I really like this site since the organization and the way that they present the objects. With a neat and clean approach to the blog, the page could be considered to be a minimalist style, depending on the view of others.
The top of the site is organized in the different sections: GEAR, CARS, STYLE, BODY, CRIB. These sections are a pathway to the different sections which go into more detail of the specific areas.
This image may seem like it has nothing to do with Architecture, but this site and company truly knows how to present their products. If you follow the link there is many provocative images of their models. The images are sometimes criticized for being provocative, but they are still creative and thoughtful. With pictures, descriptions and definitions, American Apparel doesn't just present their product line. Buildings, counties, clothes and experiences, American Apparel is much more than the average clothing company. With a company that commits many of it's presentation towards GREEN ideas, and actually produces a green organic line, the presentation is what makes the product seem simple and elegant. When thinking of ideas to intertwine with my project, I have been greatly influenced by A.A..
With bright and bold colors and usually surrounded by a mass of white, the presentation of products draws the viewers(buyers) eyes into the product. The way that the company shows models, it helps potential buyers look at the presentation of the product as more than just a piece of clothing. The entire website is well put together and makes consumers feel compelled to purchase such a product, or in better terms, "buy into the idea." This vibe that radiates from the presentation of the ideas and products is what I hope to achieve through my work. From the neat design, to the new creative, edgy, provocative look, American Apparel is my main source of inspiration through presentation.
This site is a high end simple design clothing company. The reason why I chose this site is because of it's classy yet unique orderly web design and organization. The reason why I chose this part of the website is because of the photography.
