You will design a home page for a character from a written work, either fiction or non-fiction...
As a source of ideas, you will choose a particular "telling scene" from this written work to suggest visual themes, colors, a unifying tone, and other elements for your design scheme.
Though the page will be highly visual, your design should accommodate at least two areas of editable, HTML/CSS text.
We will also learn an alternative means of designing pages to what we have learned in the McFarland book which uses Photoshop.
This project is an experiment in
- conceiving a coherent and original design scheme through an "inductive," creative process, and
- producing a page using an image-based method of construction
You will turn in a photocopy of the scene from the written work with your commentary, and explain how the design scheme derives from the scene.
You will write a commentary on your Scene to Scheme Projecty. In addition to the general guidelines for commentaries, this commentary should...
* include a printed copy of scene (1-3 pages)
* explain how you used the scene to invent an original design scheme.
* refer to specific features and aspects of your design and point both...
- to particular details and quotations from the original scene and
- to the feelings and ideas you wanted to convey to the audience, whether explicitly or by implication
