Proposed Website *Media Design*
• The Name:
o The name for my website would simply be my name so jacobavanesov.com,net,org,etc…
• A one-sentence description:
o Jacobavanesov.com is a place where you can, essentially, find all my scholarly work including, but certainly not limited to, films, essays, class assignments and projects.
• Three “User Persona’s.”
o Josh “Student at University of California, Riverside (UCR)”
o Josh, a 19 year old undergraduate at the University of California, Riverside is looking for scholarly work published on film theory and analysis and, more specifically, focusing on Alfred Hitchcock, of who I have written a substantial amount of work about. Josh enters my website as a place to begin brainstorming where he solely wants a fellow students approach to viewing who, perhaps, one might associate as the most complex and innovative director. He would enter my website, initially, viewing what he needs specifically but would, in essence, be anxious to view some of my work which will also be on the website as well. He gets inspired!
o Susan “Graduate Director/Coordinator at Azusa Pacific University”
o Susan, a 47 year old graduate director at Azusa Pacific University, where I would like to obtain a second masters degree in, is doing some bit of research on my past studies, goals, and intentions. She enters my website to find some sample writing and a biography about myself and some of my goals and interests. She needs to get a feel of what kind of aspirations I have as a student and so she looks closely at my website in order to find work.
o Miguel “Employer for some company in Los Angeles”
o Miguel, a 60 year old male, is looking to hire a prospective employee. He googles my name in google.com and, Ah!, my webpage is displayed right at the top. He begins to look through it, finding a lot more about me than he had wanted to know but he looks right at the resume as that is what he is most interested in. He looks at my qualifications and looks at the design of the site.
• How will this serve each individual need?
o If I have not yet already made it clear, I think it would be better to do this collectively. My website will, essentially, be a collective archive of work that I have done as a graduate student and throughout my life. It’s a place where people can go to if they are interested about me or film and film theory. Each individual I have listed has the sole intention of getting to know me and where I am coming from, they have the intention of looking at my work that I have published, to some extent, and contact information. They are looking for potentiality and credibility and my website might be able to fulfill these needs.
