In this section we each evaluated our own websites and made our own conclusions on what we thought were the best and worst features.

This is what we believed were essential aspects of a good website when applied correctly. We looked when doing out individual explanations at these key principles and how they have been applied to various website examples – and the effects that they had on the appearance of the website. We explored these websites, summarising what we thought thought the defining principles that made them either good or bad. Below, we have summarised some of the main aspects which were common findings throughout our individual website research.
