Here is the link to my final website:
As a result of this assignment, I have learned that organisation is key. Whether it be correctly labelling all your divs or properly organising your files – this can seriously save you from a headache in the end. I also learned that it is very important to keep things simple because simplicity is usually the most usable and attractive. I decided to keep my design rather minimal with a black, white, and grey colour scheme, and to not “overload” it with content. I feel as though this decision was successful and I enjoy its minimalist character.
If I had another opportunity to complete this assignment, I would have started much earlier so I could cover the basics and then have a lot more time to create a more intriguing and interactive design. I felt as though I spent a lot of time learning the basics and wish I had more time to make it awesome. Now I know that creating a website requires a lot of time and energy, and is definitely not something that should be left until the last minute. If I had another opportunity, I would have also made sure to have my original content more organised and developed beforehand. I have learned how content is the most important part of the website.
What a learning process this was! I can say that I feel much more confident now in HTML and CSS. After spending so much time on this website, I actually began to enjoy the process and seeing it all come together. It is very rewarding to know I have made something and that it is now functioning and online.
Below are some screenshots of the finished website.
