Mitch’s Work Experience At Webtron

Published on June 1st, 2018

Webtron Work Experience

My name is Mitchell Barlow, and I have been participating in a work experience program at Webtron for one day each week. Since completing a work-study program at Webtron, I have designed a mock website for my basketball club, started an email campaign on Mailchimp, and become familiar with the WordPress blogging platform.

Mock Website Design Process

    1. First I went onto my teams old website and looked through it, writing down what I liked and what I didn’t like. I would then use that information later to help me create a better website.
    2. Once I had looked through the old website, I went onto Pinterest to look for inspiration and get a few ideas to help me out.
    3. After these steps I began designing my website. I started by drawing ideas for different parts of the website on paper.
    4. After drawing my ideas I picked the parts I liked the most and then drew the final design on paper.
    5. Once I had finished drawing my design, I went to photoshop to create it. I started by making the background and selecting the colours.
    6. After I had created the background I moved onto adding details, text and photos.
    7. Once the background was finished and the content had been added, I tweaked the colours a bit and change some minor details as I saw fit.
    8. I showed my finished design to Sam and Lachie to get feedback and pointers.
    9. After I had gotten feedback I changed a few more things until my design was completed and I had finished my website.

Email Campaign

After I had created my Basketball Mock website, I created an email campaign for my teams newsletter. I used Mailchimp to create the email campaign which was very helpful.

I started the email campaign by creating a banner for the newsletter on photoshop. Once I had created the banner I placed it on the email. After I added the banner into the email, I coloured the background in my teams colours.

Once I had added the banner and put in colour, I filled in the email with content. I then proof read the email and changed a few minor things, then after that it was complete.

What I’ve Learnt at Webtron

In the 4 days that I have been at Webtron I have already learnt so much. Before I was doing work experience at Webtron I wanted to be a graphic designer. I’ve learnt much more about graphic designing and how graphic designing fits into websites.

I have learnt about Mailchimp and how to send email campaigns, which is a great tool for promoting your business and I’m great full I’ve learnt how to use it.

I created this blog using WordPress which I also learned at Webtron.
