Kazus page

March 23, 2010 at 8:34 pm (Kazu.tv)

The background for the Kazus page. Background is completely blue as it is above the homepage. The viewer climbs up the beanstalk navigation to reach this page. The very left of the page is covered by the navigation. The main content box is in the same position as in the homepage. Four rounded rectangle boxes appear beneath the main content box, these are the links to the information on the kazu characters.

The blue kazu – Leo, appears in the window of the strawberry house. The house links in with the other game on the site, a cooking game. Strawberries are one of the ingrediants that can be added to make a variety of dishes.

Flash Tutorial – colouring book

March 23, 2010 at 8:22 pm (Kazu.tv)

http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx2004/coloringbook.htm

With this tutorial I made a Kazu character that the children can colour in online. It will be one of the games, that can be found on the games page of the website. This will help the childs hand-eye cordination, improving their motor skills. It also lets them be creative and allows them to test out different colours easily.

The paint buttons will be bigger to make it easier for the young children & there will be more colours to give the child more variety. The eyes & nose may already be coloured as they are quite small & could be hard for the child to click on the right area. The games will load in their own window, outside of the containers of the website to allow them to be as big as possible

Logo

March 1, 2010 at 8:48 pm (Kazu.tv)

Logo for the Kazu website. It represents the path into the magical garden where the Kazus live. It is inspired by the flash cards that parents/ teachers use to teach young children new words – shows the educational element of the site.  The .tv shows the fun side of the site as it is a ball, like young children love to play with.

Homepage

March 1, 2010 at 8:30 pm (Kazu.tv)

Photoshop mock-ups of the homepage. Character will be a different colour depending on which page the viewer is on. Each page is colour coded, these colours are taken from the logo.

Each page will have the same basic layout. Pages without a second navigation that have more information on them will have a second white box.

There will be icons in the main navigation bar to make it easier for children to navigate. These icons will animate when rolled over.

The bean stalk at the side, that contains the main navigation will also change colour. It is part of the main navigation. Bigger buttons make it easier for the younger children to push them. Footer also uses same colour as the logo
