Web design & planning
Project Published 11/12/13 Last updated on 3/2/20
In this project, student teams work on a project to build a website for a client. The client selects the topic of the website and specifies the content to be included. Each student team interprets the client’s needs in proposing design solutions for the site’s navigation scheme, page layout, look and feel, and content flow. Students write specific design documents to help them communicate clearly with the client.
The focus of this project is working on a team and designing for someone else, emphasizing the following: the design-team process for website development, team-client interaction for incorporating feedback and changes throughout the development of the site, and team-client communication using the design document and evaluating websites in preparation for the design. In Project 3: Web development and deployment, student teams will build and launch the client website, completing the full website production process.
Student products: Web production project plan and design solution document; website prototype, storyboard, wireframes, and design comps
