Photo I Students Complete Documentary Sites
The process involved the creation of Photoshop mock-ups to be used as guides. The students understand the importance of having a solid idea of what the design “should” look like before starting on the coding and how it can be a great help. It is important to remember that a website is not an image. A finished website is a flexible, moving thing, built with HTML or CSS. Photoshop gives us (and the client) an “expectation” of how a website will look – but not how it will behave. The students were also challenged to thinking about how their design would translate into code all the way through the design process - never forgetting- for a good designer, content drives design!
