FINAL MAJOR PROJECT PROPOSAL
I am going to make a number of web pages. These web pages will be part of a website. The site will be an online magazine.
I have taken this route because I have been inspired by sites such as:
These types of sites provide articles on the following types of subjects:
- social issues and debate
- food and drink
- beauty and health
- adverts for products/companies
It will be my job to create the site where these articles sit and present them in an aesthetic manner.
I will not be attempting to create every single page a typical online magazine would have as they can, potentially, have hundreds. I will not be attempting to cover all the subjects above. I will be consulting my tutors on the number of pages they think necessary.
I intend to complete the website by using Photoshop, Dreamweaver and any other software that may be useful.
Specific Individual Outcomes
The audience would be anyone who browses the sites I have mentioned above. So anyone who is interested in the subjects I have listed.
The content of the site will be taken from the internet in the form of found pictures and articles/adverts that already exist. I will be concentrating on good web design, I will not be writing the articles myself as this is not the point of the project. However, I may create my own content (which may be based on real life or fiction) if I am unable to find what I need from the internet.
The site can be associated/linked to an existing site. By this I mean I have the option of creating a ‘sister site’ for an existing site or it can be a whole new site of its own i.e. a whole new online magazine of my own creation.
I have the option of using any of the following (found or made myself):
- Any type of image or graphic e.g. photo, illustration, vector, pixel based, painting, brushes etc.
- Any other means at my disposal as long as they can be placed on/within a web page
The web pages may also feature links to social media.
At the end of the project I will have a number of HTML files, which I will put onto a CD.
If printed copies are required I will provide these.
What are you hoping to learn?
I want to learn how to create good web design.
I have only made one web design project so far so I expect this project to be challenging and I hope to learn a lot of new skills.
Unique selling point
The pages must be easy to use (if they contain links/menus), clear and simple but also attractive and inspiring.
What is the message?
I want people to want to explore the content.
