Web Page Mockup Project

 

10A Angie Coates Mockup

Description

Design a website homepage using a grid.

Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, Design Principle’s)

  1. I decided I would do a mockup of a website around the logo used in a previous project. I chose the color scheme around that as well.
  2. I made 3 sketched of various designs that I could use.
  3. I then got onto Photoshop and began to create a wire frame using a 12 grid template.
  4. I then filled in the wire frame with images and content.
  5. Through the process of designing the mockup I made a few changes from the sketch.

Critique Process

I met with Sabrina Dearth via Skype. She had some great suggestions about coloring and the images. She wasn’t sure she liked the blue color with in the header and footer area but I explained that I was bringing in colors from the logo. She thought the slider picture looked vintage and the other image felt more modern so she didn’t love that. I explained that in the website my vision was that the picture on the bottom would always be changing.

Facebook Critiques: Robert Wagner and Ralph Borcherds

One on one Critique: Porter Coates

Instructor Critique: My instructor suggested I keep the font consistent in the lower left panel of the page and correct white spaces that were in my social media icon boxes. I made those corrections and was grateful for the suggestions.

Top Things Learned

It’s important to pay attention to the overall look of the site and try to see it from the perspective of a person browsing and what would look appealing to them. Also to be careful of alignment and positioning.
