My concept is to develop a self-publishing website where users will be
able to create, design, publish and distribute printed content created
by themselves (books, photo-albums etc.).
The goal is to provide a website where people will be able to publish
their work and to distribute it. The website will be interactive so
that authors could get feedback on their books.
Choice of media
The media I will use are Internet (on the first stage) and
books/printed materials (on the second stage). Initially I will design
the website only, but eventually I will have to design some possible
layouts for books, book covers, so that users could use them when
creating their publishing material.
Ideas of exploration
Mainly I will explore by interviewing and making surveys with target audience.
My first target audience are mainly young people (17-35) living in the
Ukraine. Though later on I will try to widen my project to older
audience, I will start with yonger audience, as they are more active on
the web and research with them will be more demonstrative.
My clients are potential users of my service - people who like writing and do it for pleasure.
Goals of me, my client and audience
The short term goal is to make a design that would attract young people to the service and make it popular. The long term goal is to incorporate some changes, or find some marketing solutions to attract older audience as well.
Why people will want to watch/visit/interact with my media design
With the self-publishing service I am going to offer (design), people
will be able to publish their written work and even distribute it
making some money. This will be the one of a kind such service in the
