1. A convention of most bandwebsites is that the frontpage has a news page, whichis what the audience tend togo onto first. It is a easy wayfor the audience to find outwhat the band is doing whenand where. Arctic Monkeysuses this technique althoughtheir website is of one basicand simplistic but they use adifferent approach by notincluding many images whichvaries from those of otherbands. The website stillthough appears to lookimpressive through its clarityand labeled bold pages.
2. The websites use of color is very minimal,through the use of a light cream/yellow. Thetypography for the band name is bold yet funas it sways to the side and increases in size.The text is informal when labelinginformation to attract to the youngergeneration rather than the older. Thistechnique appeals and catches the audienceseye line. 3. Various band websites include a imagepage from private photo shoots to tourimages. This is a common convention forthe audience to see and even at timesdownload these images for use as ascreensaver or desktop background.
