1. Description: This project is a made up of three sketches, one wireframe, and one final website design.
2. Process (Programs, Tools, Skills, FOCUS principles): I used Photoshop, and Illustrator for this project. I redid my logo, and changed it several times based on the different pictures I liked for my background on my final webpage design. I was able to make a grid out of squares and change the squares to different colors within the color scheme of my picture to create the look I did. I used several tools within the programs I used to make the look I wanted. I also made an easy navigating page that guides your eyes easily throughout the page.
3. Message: That I am an artist with a free heart and spirit. I love the outdoors and creativity.
4. Audience: Outdoorsy people with a passion for art and creativity.
5. Top Thing Learned: The process of how to create a website, that it takes preparation and steps and isn’t made without sketches and wireframes first.

These photos below are the sketches done in preparation for my wireframe and design of my website. I made each of these to brainstorm different ways I wanted my website to look. The first made a design for the second image, but after creating it, it didn’t grab my attention as I would have hoped, so I recreated a new one, using the first sketch. I did a wire frame of that as well, and designed it for my final project.
This pink and white picture is a wire frame of how my website would look with boxes and brief titles so I could get a better idea of how it should be. With this basic outline, it made things a lot easier to put in my actual images and logo, knowing that things were in alignment.
