Bio Page Project

Bio Page Project Instructions


Bio Page Project

  • Create 1 web page about yourself. You only need to make 1 page.
  • You can include biographical information, hobbies, or anything else you would like the class to know about you.
  • Do sketches(optional) a wireframe(required) and a comp(optional) first
    • The wireframe is due next week. More info on the wireframes and links to samples are below.
    • The actual web page is due in 2 weeks.
  • You can use these web page layout templates and code images as a starting point for the actual HTML and CSS of the page if you wish. They are from the GDS 45 class. They are images of the templates and code only, not text files of the code. You would still need to type the code ;) Links to the videos on how to code these templates are here:
  • You can also use your own code(even better).
  • You can make the page as elaborate as you want. You are the client on this one(and me).
  • If you do use one of the templates, make sure to take that basic layout into account in your wireframe.

Design & Finesse: (10 points)
