HCDE 532: Assignment 4

Building upon the tutorial in our exercise, page layout for your web page, we’re going to create four content areas that we will manipulate with CSS:

  • Header
  • Navigation
  • Content
  • Footer

Referring back to the portfolio sites you researched

  • Sketch out (pencil and paper) a rough idea of the visual design you might use on your home page, using these four content types. It’s OK if your rough design is different from last week’s.
  • Begin drafting copy for this page. Only a little lorem ipsum!
  • Create a folder on your laptop called staging; open an index.html and save it in this folder. Delete any content inside the BODY tags.
  • Build the page.

Then upload this new index.html file to your UW web server in the STAGING directory.
