I chose Lobster and Open Sans. I wanted a bold & stylish font for headings and something more neutral for the body. I didn’t want anything complicated or hard to read.
Did you validate your HTML and CSS? I validated the CSS and there were no errors. There were a few errors on the HTML I had difficulty correcting.
Which compression method did you use for images and why? I compressed my image into a .jpg because I’m more familiar with using it with photos.
Describe your overall objective in terms of design. What did you seek to convey?
I wanted an elegant smooth clean look. I feel the page is not there yet. I struggled with the codes and it took up so much of the time.
How did you express your theme in this project?
My theme was to keep it simple. An easy clean yet charming layout.
How have you used color?
I used color on my background and fonts. I really wanted to add a pattern but I couldn’t find one that would compliment the page.
How did formal design elements help you realize your composition (scale, balance, hierarchy, positive and negative space, etc.)? Be specific.
I wanted to leave enough negative space to read the content on my the page and not crowd the photo. I was concerned whether the colors would be to sticking. I’m determined to add a pattern to give the page some texture. Overall I’m more proud of accomplishing assignment on my own.
