Occy's Website and Online Media

Written by Ray Bisschop on . Posted in Websites

There aren't too many times when you get to work for a "Legend" and working for Mark "Occy" Occhilupo was exactly that.. a legend!

I had met Mark a couple of times at some events that I was Photographing and Videoing and we got chatting, turned out he needed a website and he decided I was the man for the job.

After a couple of "board meetings" (code for we went for a surf), a round up of what images and videos he had on hand and hunting down all the fake Facebook pages that were out there, we were away.

And yes going for a surf with a living legend was a blast

It didn't take long for the site to come together as there is so much information about Occy out there and what Mark had on hand, we utilized his Twitter Feed and Facebook on the site to keep things up to date and also started his YouTube channel. We now had all of Mark's information in one place for people to find.

Mark wanted the site to have information about his corporate events and commentary as this was the direction he was taking his career. So the site had to have both the Corporate and the Surfer feel, the "Salts and Suits" if you will. So with that in mind we were very happy with the end result. Check it out for yourself.

I also had the opportunity to go on a Fuel TV shoot with Mark to do a few Promo shots, below are some of the shots from my interaction with Occy.

How to make a great websites

Written by Ray Bisschop on . Posted in Websites

You never know what will win a Website award. From the highly technical, to the image rich or to the just plain weird, website winners have range and reach. Here are a few simple guidelines that can take a website from so-so to so great!

Ask why
There are 40 million web sites on the Internet and the numbers grow every day. To make a great site, it is essential to know why you're building it. From marketing a company agenda, to instigating commerce, to championing a cause, there are many answers to the question why. To make a truly great site, know your reason and stand by it.

Know your visitor
Why would someone visit your site? What is the motivation to get the information, service, or product you are providing? There are so many sites, that to make a truly excellent one is to tailor each interaction to the audience you want to serve. Be specific. The more detail with which you can describe your ideal visitors, the more equipped you are to build something that communicates, inspires and serves them. In the world of interactive media, you serve your audience, and the more you know exactly who they are, the more effective and engaging your site is.

Map the Big Picture
For many of us, a simple stream of data is overwhelming. Data becomes relevant when it is put into context. When you know why you're building your site, and you know who your target visitors are, you can focus the stream of information in a direction that is meaningful for you and your audience. To see that stream, you need to climb a tree to get a birds-eye view. Create a map or architecture to envision what kinds of information and what paths to and from that information work. From user scenarios to technical specifications to flow charts, the more detail one can put into this map, the more successful the site will be.

Create an experience
The web is alive and ever changing. The most important interaction is the collaboration between humans and technology. Don't forget that the end user is a real living, breathing human being. Engaging the visitor in a genuine and relevant way is the essence of creating a quality web experience. Whether the goal is to answer a specific need, sell a product, or simply make someone guffaw into their screen, a standout web site is a series of conscious decisions that create a distinct experience.
