Ponce City Market’s Web Environment

When first entering the web page, I immediately was drawn to the words, “Ponce City Market,” and then “Come see,” followed by, “Endless Possibilities.” These words make the market seem to be a positive place just based of the positivity in the diction and the bright attractive colors used. After initially reading those words I saw the menu at the top where I could find more information organized by category. “News” and “Events” being center drew my eyes to them first, which is convenient because of the importance of keeping up with what is going on with the establishment in which the website is dedicated to.

The web page is very clean cut with only black, white, blue, and orange color, other than the bottom of the page where a photo gallery resides. These colors are visually pleasing and decreases distraction when reading off of the page. The typography changes throughout the page but keeps a very clean cut theme similar to the color scheme. Mostly block like lettering fills the page with accents of cursive like font.

As I scroll down the page I got a preview of what the different tabs in the menu might include. A brief description of the establishment and its history is located in one of many organizational blocks down the page. Next to the description, in a separate block, there is a link to a specific upcoming event.  More blocks are filled with events, videos, and photos. This method of organization makes it easier to differentiate the many sections.

The main page is very simple and aside from the description and a few other side notes, each section is kept to just a few word descriptions and then linked to another page with more information. This is very helpful to for me to navigate and find what I want without having to read extensively.

Georgia Tech’s Library, Built Environment Description


The Georgia Institute of Technology Library, located at 704 Cherry St. Atlanta, Ga 30332, is a large building on the top of a hill. I admit I was a little bit lost trying to find the building. Although both located in Atlanta, Gerogia Tech’s campus is very different from Georgia State University’s urban feeling. The Georgia Tech campus is more of a pedestrian campus than Georgia State University.


Once I found my self at the top of a hill and entering what I found to be the library, I checked in with the friendly security guard. Unlike Georgia State, all I had to do in order to enter the library was have my I.D checked and recorded, but then I was well on my way. Looking around there were only security at the front entrance. I thought this was interesting because when ever I enter Georgia State’s library the first thing I notice is the abundance of police and security.


I took a seat by the stairwell to wait for my friend Jacob, whom I asked to come spend time with me while I observed the library. When he called me to tell me he had arrived, he asked me where I was. I honestly told him I did not know. Then I realized there really were no distinctive landmarks to any section of what I had so far seen of this library. Luckily I saw him walking around the corner moments later. Jacob showed me that a few floors up they have a seating area that was flled with students studying and doing homework. We took our seat in a small booth in the corner of the room so that I could see all that was going on in the room in front of us.

Not much happened while I sat in the Georgia Tech library. Everyone was so focused on their schoolwork, it was almost silent. I literally heard a pen drop from across the room at one point. mostly students were using their laptops while a handful of people had physical books in front of them to study. Every once and a while a new handful of people would cycle in and out of the study environment. Each time a new person entered they would find a seat, and pull one of the over head extention cord over to their work station. I continued to watch this occur and occur for a few hours before needing to leave.
