Boon The Star
Website for a celebrity-to-be contestant ‘Boon’ on a national TV show ‘The Star 9′ as the official fan page where fans can follow, chat and discuss everything about Boon. The idea was discussed with the client for a feminine vintage but pop style design. The client wanted the website to please the majority female audiences. The soft color scheme with minimal usage of slab style fonts was used to give this a unique identity.
The client supplied me with a logo. Immediately, the obvious crown element on top of the logo was cleverly used to support the navigation menu on top of the website. The vertical stripes background on the bottom of the page also complimented the photo supplied by the client.
While the ‘News’ page used WordPress, the most complicated feature on this website to implement was the ‘Forums’ page. The forum framework I used was Vanilla Forums, an open-source PHP-based software, which was very user-friendly and a clear winner among many forum-based software. The forum allowed fans to connect and talk through ‘discussions’ threads with an extremely simple sign up process through Facebook or twitter.
The website also integrated with popular social platforms, by pulling twitter feeds from Boon, feeds from the fans and Instagram photos.
On top of that, I also designed additional assets for the client to use, such as a Facebook cover photo, Instagram photos, a poster and a large format backdrop. Overall the client was very happy with the result and looking forward to hire me for other projects in the future.
