Focus statement: The Grill is a restaurant for everyone. I wanted to provide a website that can show potential customers just that. The site is easy to read with modest colors and an easy navigation anyone can use.
The look and feel I chose and the reason why: I wanted to use colors found in a hamburger plus the grill (which is the grey). Since the restaurant is a grill the hamburger theme made the most sense to me when it came to colors. They are also easy on the eyes and not to bold. I chose a two column layout with text on one side and images on the other. I thought it would help with making the page less cluttered and easy to follow.
Our whole life is based on the choices that we make. whether it is a good or bad choice it will always affect us. Choices determine where we go, if we succeed or if we fail. I made the choice to go into web design and this choice is one of the biggest I have made in my lifetime. This career is what I chose to do with myself. So I will make choices to learn as much as I can to better myself. I have made bad decisions which resulted in negative outcomes, but once I had done it I learned from that mistake I would go on to make much better choices that outweighed the bad ones. Another great choice of mine was to finish high school, which I am happy to announce to everyone I meet that I graduated and am finally done! I cant wait to say next that I finished Francis Tuttle and I am ready to move on to get a job. I cannot wait to go on into life and have a family and a great job I enjoy and am happy to wake up to. The idea i want to get across is that choices we make with always impact our lives no matter what.
I spent a lot of time looking up designing concepts for web design, and I am no positive I want to be a Web Designer. One of the first things I stumbled upon was the CSS3 animation property. I love being to make different things move around on the page. I found a ton of tutorials on the site http://www.w3schools.com/. They have so much good information and tutorials I can use. They also make it completely clear for newbies like me to read and comprehend. Googling CSS galleries was also extremely helpful in finding information and inspiration. Designing is more appealing to me because, I can create sites from my own mind. I get to make them look cool and modern. http://www.smashingapps.com/2012/02/23/showcase-of-useful-css3-tutorials-and-techniques.html this website showed some AMAZING designs that I really want to try out during the rest of the year. One of my favorite css3 creations i have done so far is my navigation that is a ribbon with text that hovers when you scroll over it. http://inetstudent1.francistuttle.edu/bpas12/ this is the website I created with my team mates. You can see my navigation that I am very proud of. I also edited the images in Photoshop cs5. Strengthening my skills in Photoshop and designing are at the very top of my list! I cannot wait to learn more and become well versed in web designing.
Communication is always going to be necessary. That is how we in this society live, by communicating to each other our ideas, thoughts, and opinions. Web designing requires much communication because the designer has to be sure that the client is getting what they want and nothing less. Its important to keep in contact to we know what is going on and that we aren’t kept in the dark. Communication happens everywhere all the time. It happens over the phone, computer, day to day activities, and more. We even communicate to our pets. Humans aren’t the only ones to do this. Animals, insects, even machines use it. We also have many forms of communication since not everyone can talk or hear so we have to develop technologies to help those that cannot communicate as easily as other people can. I think we will always have developing technologies to talk to one another. It is essential to life and human development. If we did not have any social interaction with anyone then human life would not prosper and there would be much chaos and discord. When it all comes down to it, communication is key so always try to express yourself clearly where others can understand and respond back.
When I saw I had to watch pod casts I didn’t think that id find anything useful. But I am surprised at what I actually found was helpful. I listened to how to act and what to do and wear. I learned that WDD isn’t just a solo thing but team work.
Anger management is a good skill to have in life. If you didn’t have it you would miss out on a lot in life and be in more trouble. Having patience and having the ability to think rationally are two good skills anyone should try and improve on. In the web designing industry you MUST have anger management skills or you will end up smashing the monitor into millions of pieces. Problem solving is a must need skill for WDD you have to be able to stay calm and collected and find solutions to your web pages and code.
Here is some ways to cool down and keep your temper in check:
Stop and walk around if you are beginning to feel flustered.
Take big deep breaths and calm down as much as you can.
Do not yell or thrash around that will only raise your blood pressure and male you more angry.
Try to think happy thoughts and not what is bothering you.
Those are my tips to help you with anger. I have done all of these and they really seem to help me out. Personally I get very angry easily if i cant understand something, so I will calm down, breathe, and maybe listen to music to get my mind off being mad.
