For this project we will be redesigning craiglist, with the option to follow a design style, which I have picked Bauhaus style, since the color choices and shapes really call my attention and also portray a more manly aspect to it, which coincidentally matches with the target market. For this project I will be focused on a older audience, mainly males and car oriented yet keeping in mind the purpose of the website itself.
the style of the website needs to more male oriented and not difficult to use, with usabilites such as rates, saved items, liked items, filters and ranges. The items in the pages should be easy to read and big enough to click.
The client for this project is based in males that want to be able differentiate the types of items he will be looking at in the website. The client is focused on clear readability of the website with enough easy usability for different devices. The style preferred by the client will be focused on the good use of color and shapes to create hierarchy and flow for the pages in the website. Below are the styles I decided to use.
Throughout the 20th century, several styles of avant-garde art helped shape modern art. While many of these genres—including subconscious-based surrealism and energetic abstract expressionism—predominantly favored paintings, the Bauhaus movement encompassed a wide array of mediums, materials, and disciplines. Ranging from paintings and graphics to architecture and interiors, Bauhaus art dominated many outlets of experimental European art throughout the 1920s and 1930s. Though it is most closely associated with Germany, it attracted and inspired artists of all backgrounds. Today, its influence can be found in art and design all over the world, whether within the walls of a museum or on a suburban street. What is Bauhaus? Bauhaus—literally translated to “construction house”—originated as a German school of the arts in the early 20th century. Founded by Walter Gropius, the school eventually morphed into its own modern art movement characterized by its unique approach to architecture and design. Today, Bauhaus is renowned for both its unique aesthetic that inventively combines the fine arts with arts and crafts as well as its enduring influence on modern and contemporary art.
