This homework assignment is due by the end of day, Saturday, March 26, 2010. Students are asked to assess the quality of the work in the following categories:
- Logo design
- Use of typography
- Overall style and design, and appropriateness for the topic and audience
- Proper use of semantic html and css
Comments are required for every homepage created. You are not required to make comments in all categories for every design. But you must make comments in at least one category per design. You must also have at least 3 comments per category. For instance, you must comment on at least 3 logo designs, the typography in at least 3 homepages, 3 layouts, etc.
You also need to rank the designs of the homepages, from best to least-best, and be sure to include your own homepage designs in the list.
If you have difficulty understanding these instructions, first ask students in your design group for guidance. If you are still unsure of the instructions, then contact me.
For homework this week, students must send me links to live pages. There should be 3 links in total.
- A 2-column layout that we did in class
- A 3-column layout that we started in class
- A rough layout (colored blocks) of your design for your final project
Make sure that you submit the entire URL, including the “http://” so that when I receive the email, it will be a live link on which I can click.
Using a source such as the New York Times article on blood-consuming organisms, combine photos, captions, and an article in an interesting layout. You should practice the skills acquired in class, styling text using CSS, and layout techniques using divs, floats, positioning, and CSS. This one-page assignment should showcase your graphic design talent, it should be engaging to look at, and entice the viewer to read.
