Project 7: Web Page

P7BridgettePattersonScreenShot

Description: I designed a web page  to showcase a personally created logo.


Process (Programs, Tools, Skills):

I used TextWrangler and Photoshop.

Using TextWrangler, (a free program for Mac users), I wrote the basic HTML portion of my code. Then I attached a pre-made CSS document to my code. Nrext I needed to get the colors from my logo to use on my web page. In Photoshop I found them using the eyedropper tool. I changed the fonts from the default fonts in the pre-made CSS document, and I added some backup fonts just in case the viewer’s browser does not have the fonts I have chosen. I made the background image by using a gradient fill in a rectangle shape in Photoshop. Then I added some of the fish I created when I designed my logo and stationary. I created the three text bubble images in Photoshop, and added them to the HTML as jpeg images. I used padding around the logo, text bubbles, and  body text so that they would not be too close to the edge of the web page. I linked this website (leading to Project 6) to the bottom of the page.

Message: 

The message is that FishyKisses lip balm will keep lips very moist and soft.

Audience:

The audience is for girls ages 8- 18

Top Thing Learned:

I learned a lot about how CSS and HTML talk to each other to create designs. There are so many things I learned doing this project that seem to be on an equal level of importance.

Color scheme and color hex: 

I used split complimentary colors of aqua, orange, and red.

Dark Aqua #4d8f98
Light Aqua #5dc5c5
FishLip Gold #faaf40
Pink Heart #db70AB
Light Gray #aba8ad
Dark Gray #716f71

Title Font Families & Category:

My title font is “Orange Juice” from the Decorative category

Font Families & Category:

I used Typewriter  for the body copy, which is a slab-serif.

Changes made to the CSS

I changed the fonts, colors, padding, H1, H2, and H3. I also styled the images, body, and bullet points.
