Design Overview:
This clean, bright, easy to use site is colorful, looks fun, and inspiring. The site navigation is clear, and the site is devoid of the usual government site clutter, making it quite attractive. A robin’s egg blue textured background helps frame the content, but there is still plenty of white space. The rounded corners and bright colors lend an almost cartoony fun quality.

Audience:
Children, their parents, schools, community leaders, chefs, elected officials, and healthcare providers. The site even has a page with information for each specific audience.

Business/Site Goals:
From the site’s About section comes this description –  “Let’s Move! is a comprehensive initiative, launched by the First Lady, dedicated to solving the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation, so that children born today will grow up healthier and able to pursue their dreams.”

Social Media Integration:

Technologies Used:
Email sign up, blog (run on Drupal)

Team Members: Rachael and Ting

Reviews:
Woo Rank
It was easy enough to find “reviews” with basic site stats and figures similar to but not as extensive as the Woo Rank link, and it was easy to find reviews of the Let’s Move program, but the team could not find any actual reviews of the site.
