We plan to change our layout by creating a notebook/journal and a pencil. The background is wood to represent a wooden desk. We have our table with the right side corners rounded. We plan to take a photo of a notebook spiral and place it on the outside of the table to make it a journal. The footer is going to be a pencil. We have pictures of a pencil that we're going to photoshop so the left side of the footer is the eraser and the right side is the lead end.
Our three repurposed items are film, lightbulbs, and pizza boxes. The film reel gets cut up into individual pieces of film, and the lightbulb goes from not being on, to being turned on and lit up. Our third entry is the pizza boxes with a box and our logo on it, which opens to show a picture of me and Jess on the inside of the lid. The color of our website logo is green, or hex code #00A300. It means: money, growth, fertility, freshness, healing, envy, jealousy, guilt, disorder, life, renewal, balance, harmony (http://www.designbyjoyce.com/color_meanings.html#sthash.TdBPsnro.dpuf). To me, it means renewal because its renewing the planet by recycling and repurposing. The tagline for our website is "Forever safe. Forever remembered." The rendering process was relatively easy except for the film icons. We had to crop, erase, and repaint parts of the pictures we put on the film pieces and reel. My favorite tool was the ombre effect we put on the lightbulb.
For a dynamic drive effect, I would like to use one of the fireworks or the bubbles. Fireworks are bright and colorful like me and Jess. The bubbles are bubbly like me and Jess. We would use them on our 6th page, the "About The Webmasters" page. We wouldn't want them to be too much of a distraction to the website's viewers.
“Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.”― Muhammad Ali. With every passing day, you look for excitement, laughter, and memories, but there is no one else out there who can help you with that more than your best friend. Memories made with those who you cannot seem to forget are the memories worth documenting. We found our friendship by accident… We were forced together at a school bowling tryout, and then all we simply did was say hi. We have been inseparable since. Now, as we participate in The Michigan Council of Women in Technology’s annual web design contest, we can show our friendship to others. The contest is based off of the theme “Repurposing: The Ultimate in Creativity and Recycling.” The point is to take everyday items, old items, or unused items, and flip them so they aren’t thrown away instead. With our website we will show you “Do It Yourself” projects that turn a jar, a light bulb, and a pizza box, into fun decorations worth storing your memories. And with this project comes an object that will forever remind you of your greatest achievement… Finding your best friend!
Me and Jess are going to make shirts that say best friends. We are going to make the saying funny if we can. We're not completely sure what it will say just yet. We plan on taking pictures with plan t-shirts on and then photoshopping "Best Friends" on to them.
Using a pixel font size is closely related to using Microsoft Word. EMs are considered better practice because they work in any browser and don't usually have problems with them.
The difference between a system font and a web font is that not all computers have the same system fonts and web fonts are on the web so they can be retrieved from any computer. A web font is better because then you don't have to worry about a computer not having your font. The font you should use for your body text is sans-serif because it is easier to read on computers. You can use serif fonts in headers or sub-headers. I feel like Open Sans fits our theme best. Open Sans to me, is kind of a fun font and that screams friendship.
The definition of CSS is Cascading Style Sheets. HTML is not for presentation or designing purposes, but CSS is. CSS Syntax labels are selectors and declarations. Declarations are broken up into properties and values. Comment tags for CSS are only 2 pieces (/*). The three ways to insert CSS are: external style sheet, internal style sheet, and the inline style. We will use the Internal Style Sheet the most.
Repurposing means taking something you don't use anymore and using it for something you wouldn't think of. Think out of the box sparked me the most. Me and Jess have our ideas and they aren't things you would think of. The nearest Waste Management is at 22650 Stevenson Street, Clinton Township, MI 48035. They can be reached at Phone: 866-797-9018. The nearest Salvation Army is at 31015 Harper Ave, St Clair Shores, MI. They can be reached at (586) 541-0397. Fun Facts about recycling are: they make you feel good because you're helping the environment, you can turn old items into new ones, and another fun fact is you can stop littering trash into landfills when it could be recycled. One good idea was the grand piano shelving unit. One bad idea was the wrench wall hooks. One item I am repurposing is film negatives. I am gluing them on a jar and put an LED in it to illuminate the film negatives.
