To Develop a well designed HTML project that presents information on a topic of public interest that you feel strongly about or effects you personally. If you have another type of site you would like to do, just run it by me.
- Create 15 Thumbnail concepts, a site map or outline, at least 5 wireframes and 2 Comps(Comprehensives).
- You will do all 4 stages from above, but you will turn in wireframes or comps.
- You do not have to turn in thumbnails or the site diagram/outline, but I will look them over with you.
- For Thumbnails, do at least 2 versions of each screen. Thumbnails are small sketches used to explore ideas for your design.
- Do a site diagram/sitemap or site outline.
- You can also use an app like gliffy, or whatever app you like for the site site diagram/sitemap, or word for an outline in text form listing your pages and their relationship to each other.
- For the wireframes, do the main screen and all other screen types (5 minimum)
- The wireframes should be fairly detailed, using actual text as much as possible
- You can do the wireframes online in balsamic, or using whatever software you want.
- Wireframe samples can be found in the materials folder.
- Good wireframe examples can also be seen here.
- For Comps, do the main screen and at least 1 other screen type
Comps are mock-ups of your pages usually done in Photoshop. They can also be done in other applications. They should look like the final version of the html page will look, so you can show the client what their site will look like.
- See examples of thumbnails and comps here.
- Apply XHTML features you have been learning through lectures and tutorials
- Combine the use of XHTML and Image Editing software
