BAND PROJECT INSTRUCTIONS
purpose of this exercise is to test your ability to create a well designed
and functional interactive product in a very limited amount of time.
Keep the scope of your project manageable. The main goals are to
achieve a fully working piece while maintaining a high quality and appropriate
design for your chosen band.
- Create 10 Thumbnail
concepts or 2 roughs showing the design, content, and composition
of your screens.
are a used to explore possible designs for pages/screens by sketching
multiple small versions of the design. If you do thumbnails, do
more than 1 per screen. Roughs are a more complete version of what
a completed screen will look like. It is larger that a thumbnail
with more detail. If you do 2 roughs instead of 10 thumbnails, do
1 for the main screen, and 1 for any other screen in your project.
There are examples of both thumbnails and roughs in the binder in
the classroom next to the teachers station.

proper graphics, text and colors for the intended audience
- You are welcome
to do more than the minimum required time permitting. "Time Permitting"
is the key word! Keep in mind your time limits and avoid spending too
much time on content and not enough on programming.
- Use "placeholder"
type graphics in your director piece to get a WORKING version of the
project. Once that has been accomplished, THEN go wild on the graphics.
