Considerations when making an actual site.
Find websites that relate to the topic you’re interested in.
Spend the afternoon making loose sketches for your portfolio site. Your sketches should include the core content of your site and be influenced by research of existing sites. Be prepared to share your results.
We’ll walk down the river to visit Schoolyard, a web design and development company that specializes in websites for high schools. We’ll meet with owner Jason Pamental @jpamental to see and hear how they go from sketch to code. They’ve moved over to Drupal to manage their content.
We’ll be eating lunch with Jason, too.
Choose one of the Scandinavian countries (link to other countries at the bottom) and construct its flag in two ways: using absolute positioning and using floated divs. Apply the links to both from one post assigned to assignment 6. The size of the flag is up to you.
Design a button (use input, paragraph or list item for the HTML element) to encourage someone to download an image that sits above the button. In other words, pair an image with a download button. This is an opportunity to apply the css3 properties of a block element: border, border-radius, box-shadow, etc. Take a look at some of the links below to see how others are dong this and how they’re coding it, too.
Make a post linking to your creation. Categorize it as “Assignment 5“.
