The final project for my web class was to re-design the Art Institute’s site (I got a 295/300 on this! My menu jiggles and that docked me 5 points):
- Use css (not tables)
- create a Dreamweaver template and then use that for 6 pages (Home, About, News, Student Life, etc.)
- sub pages must contain the same info as is on the site
- links must work etc.
- use Cufon to place a specialty font in the page titles
Unfortunately my partner bailed on me and I finally figured out he wasn’t going to show (it was his job to supply some of the graphics as well as help code the sub pages after I created the template.) I coded this and created the graphics in one weekend. Needless to say, I felt a certain sense of accomplishment over that! Prior to going into the weekend, I was feeling quite shakey with my html capabilities, but this has given me a confidence that I would not have had if I were working with a solid partner. (Not that I am thanking the kid, mind you! Made for a wicked weekend! As well asI took a hit on some late online homework .)
That crunch means there are some things that are not fully “clean”, but all the requirements were met and even exceeded. Below is a clickable version of the same seen above (for those who might be nerdy enough to care about the details!)
