Art, Ramblings, and Thoughts.

Week 11

This past week seemed to go by so quickly! For our class, we mainly focused on our final project-constructing out own website. We’re still in the preliminary stages where we are coming with wireframes and design comps. I really wasn’t totally satisfied with my wireframe so I pretty much started all over and took everyone’s suggestions into consideration. Here is what my home page of my design comp looks like…

It’s still a work in progress. I can say that the Lynda.com practices have really been helping. I’m grateful for those!

As for the reading this week, we covered a lot. One main reading contained information on stock photography-whether it be low-cost, or no-cost. Some websites that are included in this are:

http://www.Dreamstime.com

An article that I found to be interesting was http://bokardo.com/archives/five-principles-to-design-by/.

This article explains what really constitutes as “good design”. It may not really be what you think. Ultimately, thinking of the user and being as simplistic as possible will achieve.
