Week 4: Example Site (Individual Performer)

Gary Mauer, Musical Theatre Actor —

Gary Mauer’s website has a very clean and focused design to it.  It features a photograph of him and simple links to the right side.  It is balanced, and easy to find what you are looking for.

It differs from a group site in that it focuses on one person.  This person, whether in an individual photograph or a group photograph, should be the focus of the website.  The website is to get their name out in the world, represent themselves, and sell themselves.

I think the website as a whole represents Gary ok; although he is a very fun person in real life, the website is strict and professional, but that’s how it should be.  There are fun elements to the website, for example, the photographs section.  On this part of the website, music is played in the background and there are photo “books” you can flip through.

The only change I would make is to update it more often.  The last update to his touring schedule was done in 2011.  It would be a lot better to inform any fans of upcoming appearances, shows, and concerts and keep that current.
