Site Critique: NPR.org

Screen Shot 2012-11-12 at 9.53.08 AM

NPR.org is the online home of National Public Radio. The site has a clean design and simple color palette that keeps with NPR branding. The design of the site is geared toward a radio audience. I find the NPR site to be well designed and full of interesting content that engages readers intellectually. While there are some minor obstacles in the navigation, I think the overall user experience is effective for the site.

Site Critique: Visit Norway

Screen Shot 2012-11-07 at 8.57.00 AM

VisitNorway.com is a website promoting tourism in Norway through online advertising services, directory services, featuring links to relevant services and interesting activities. I first learned about this website because its 360-degree View Page, http://www.visitnorway.com/360/geiranger/#/trollveggen, got the 16th annual Webby Awards winner. Because the “Norway 360 View” page for the Geirangerfjord and Trollstigen area has all the links and navigation to the main website and content pages, like www.visitnorway.com or booking page, I am going to start my review from the 360 view page.

Chipotle site critique PrtSc

Reviewer: Tyler Confoy Link: http://www.chipotle.com/en-US/Default.aspx The Chipotle site offers customers a very transparent look into how Chipotle Mexican Grille operates. In a broad sense, the site serves two main functions: it offers viewers the option of ordering food online, and it educates viewers about Chipotle’s food, food sourcing, history, employees, restaurants, company and environmental intentions. The […]
