Efforts were dedicated to creating a reader-friendly website that allowed users to navigate effortlessly, enabling them to pick up and resume reading seamlessly. To achieve this, I implemented drop-down options for easy selection of pages and chapters. The process involved designing a wireframe and an interactive prototype, providing a clear visualization of the website’s new layout and user flow, ultimately ensuring a smooth and intuitive experience for readers.
In the visual design phase, I skillfully created a captivating design that perfectly complements the comic book world, using vibrant colors and visually appealing illustrations that resonate with the target audience. Additionally, I integrated social media features, allowing users to easily share their favorite comics and explore new releases through their social networks, fostering a sense of community and interaction among readers.
