Style and Layout
For the style and layout assignment you will produce a prototype page for your website. This will guide the design of your website. First provide a single, fully designed page with real content, as follows:
- Single page finished and published to your web space (don't forget to provide a URL so I can view it on the web)
- Navigation designed and in place (It doesn't have to work)
- Clear structure of content in appropriate subdirectories (e.g., an images directory for your images, or something more complex if your site is more complex)
- Single linked style sheet
- Images in appropriate formats and optimized , sized appropriately
- Appropriate font stacks (screen friendly typefaces with at least one fallback)
- Other evidence of conformance with principles discussed in lectures/readings. (e.g., image alt text, document titles, file/directory names.)
- Reminder: I will not accept any assignment that shows evidence of the use of templates, frameworks or cut/pasted code that did not originate with the course material.
In a 2-3 page document, describe and show:
- 2-3 double-spaced pages that concisely present your rationale for your design, content, and site layout.
- Describe characterisitcs such as the main site organization, page layout, font choices, font stack choice, graphics use, page width, color scheme, document titles, image alt text, file naming conventions and other design factors we have read about and discussed in class.
- Explain why you’ve made the design choices you’ve made.
- You must include specific references to lecture and the readings, particularly how you applied these principles, or present your rationale for deviating from them.
