Milwaukee Local National Entertainment and Culture Website Reviews
September 11, 2022
For this blog post, I am analyzing and giving my thoughts on these local websites. As I take notes about these websites, I notice a lot of these websites have their own unique ways of building their own websites, maybe in strange ways.
Starting first with OnMilwaukee website, my first initial reaction to the website is that it looks professional culture website. The website has their own logo and everything layout is mostly decent and easy to navigate. The color scheme overall is well-balanced, the texts are easy to read, visuals look like they're cropped perfectly. As I scrolled down to see more of the website, the "More articles from OnMilwaukee" section, everything is chronically in order but I feel like it would be easy to see more of the articles if it didn't take up almost the whole screen.
The overall color scheme is nice, easy to read, and looks professional. However, I feel like there are way too many section tabs that it gets overwhelming, especially when you hover over them and there's still more sub sections. Besides the overall design, the whole content of the website is another news source for Milwaukee and I like that it focuses a lot about lifestyles.
The first initial reaction that I got was that this website feels way to clustered but I think it's just because there are two columned articles and that has a lot of texts to look at, specifically on the right columned. The color schemed looks nice, white background and black texts, easy to read like previous websites. There are not too many top sections and the subsections are under them once you hovered over them. Scrolling down the website, the previous articles are ordered chronically.
Milwaukee Record focuses on culture and lifestyle, and a bit of news once every week. The website overall color scheme uses dark blue for the background with an advertisement, "One Call That's All" that's poorly, cropped. The website looks strange and not as professional compared to other sites based on how it looks but the content is heavily focused on Milwaukee music and also list future events, and I think that's pretty cool. To me, it looks like small percentage of users would use this website if they're in Milwaukee and they're into music record news. Other than that, I heavily disliked the website cropped background, makes it very strange and out of place.

About your response to "Urban Milwaukee", I completely agree with the fact that there is way to much going on. It feels like there is no organization.

I agree with you and also see a pattern especially with entertainment focused websites, everything is a bit cluttered and not professional looking. While other websites that also focus on other news are very organized and easy to follow.
