Hi, I'm Elena He! I'm a senior this year majoring in Marketing and minoring in Design and Business of Art.
I primarily want to go into advertising design as my career and would like to learn from this class how I can create a website to host my digital portfolio. I have a little UI design experience that led to want to learn more about creating user-friendly platforms.
I have very minimal experience with HTML - I watched some videos to teach myself basics a couple summers ago. I have absolutely no experience with CSS or JS.
I know the basic purposes of HTML and CSS, but I would like to learn how I can best utilize JS.
Designing for screen takes more steps between the act of creation and the product. On the other hand, when designing for paper you can typically see what you create visually as you make it.
Considering this website is meant to develop a joke, I think the simple design is especially effective as it helps to highlight rather than detract from the comical content.
Think with Google
This is one of Google's key marketing research and insights websites, and I think its communication is effective particularly because it is designed in a way that divides the wealth of technical information in a way that makes the content easier to digest.
For a website whose purpose is to help users with little to no web design experience to create useful and visually appealing websites, Wix does a great job with appealing to its audience with streamlined functions and layout. I have personally created several websites using Wix and have found it to be more user-friendly than its competitors.
