Content

The designed high fidelity prototype website for the Global Toys, Games, and Cards (GTGC) completely adheres to the interface design principle (Olausen and Kaspi 2014).

Besides, the copyright details and notice is attached in the bellow of the web pages. The content of the website should not be played with in a way that might confuse the visitor who is surfing the website. It can be seen that there has been the use of color in an appropriate way that blends well and the texts are easier to read (Park et al. 2015). No any confusing navigation layout might annoy the visitor and would not want to come further to surf the website. It is imperative to make the web pages simple yet descriptive and reflective, professional yet fun and most importantly there should not be any such components that the visitor cannot understand or take some time to understand.

This website has total three different product pages. One is the board game, second is Lego technique, and third is playing cards. To design a good website, navigation system should be perfect (Liao et al. 2015). In home page basic information such as opening hours, entrance, exit, etc. are given.
