Site analysis

http://finnsjourney.de/

I chose this site because I speak German and wanted to hear it. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself going through the entire site, something which is unusual for me. I’m usually sift through sites quickly and rarely digest everything a site has to offer. However, this site was not only easy to figure out and to use but the content was interesting!conceptual model –  images and sound. The images have movement and the storytelling is in the audio. The audio drives the site. The home page gives easy instructions for impatient viewers like myself — “Turn your volume on and scroll down!” The task flow is simply scroll down and listen. The organizational model is simple. There is one picture per site chapter and you can easily jump chapters by clicking on the timeline across the bottom of every page. The viewing and navigation is simple – scroll down and listen!  Editing and manipulation – the only real user manipulation is in the share options at the end. The Layout consists of animated images that keep you held as you listen to the story. The Style is consistent throughout. The site has no Text besides the instructions in the beginning and the credits at the end.
