Week01

1. List 3 of your favorite Web sites and tell me why they are your favorites. What is it about each site that make you want to visit it frequently?

a. fackbook: I went to college out of state, so it helps me stay connected to my friends and reduces my phone bill. I liked it better when it was ONLY for college students and they didn’t change the layout every month. (change isn’t always good!)

b. pandora: speaks for itself! A music station I can control and that is smart enough to link my music artist choice to other artist that sound alike.

c. flickr: Its a fast way for me to upload my projects to get my friends opinion and I can control the privacy settings. Site is very easy to use.

2. What do you like best about Web Design? After reading the possible careers in web/interactive described in the class notes below, where do you think you best fit into the field?

I like the web designer aspect and I wouldn’t mind doing coding. I like the process of creating the visual look and feel for a web page/ site.

3. Referring to the blog post “100 Must Read Design Blogs,” select a blog of your choice, read an interesting article and post a quick summary and your thoughts about it to your WordPress blog.

The blog is straight to the point and not long winded. It gives great information to help me determine a name for my business.

    Hi Jessica,

    Your HTML assignment for this week helped me learn a lot about you — thanks for that! I think — since you don’t mind coding — having technical skills in addition to your design talent is a great combination!

      Thank you and sorry about the broken links. It’s because I optimized them after inputting them and forgot to update the links.
