Brief Chosen
I have chosen the HCI and have decided on the web interface

I have an idea of it being for both new and existing students to visit and this
should appeal to all ages


Solutions
 1. this is to be a flash site entirely
 2. A part flash and part html / css
 3. A html/css based site


Solution chosen
I have decided on creating an html/css site due to the problems the other 2
options have if the viewer is trying to access the site via a device that does not
support flash or does not wish to run flash on their computer / device




Sizes of site
Have decided on 1024 x 768 but have looked at other sites sizes i.e. 800x600
1280x800 the reason I decided on the 1024 x 768 is that it is the most common
site size and will display correctly on about 90% of computers

The site will include information on the units covered in the course and will
include photo and video or small animation which will be gathered and then
optimised for inclusion in to the site

All original files and edited files will be kept in separate folders on a disk or usb
stick for the submission of the project




                                                                                        2

Hardware needed


PC OR MAC

Inside and outside of college so I am not limited to one or the other

CAMERA       for taking photos    VIDEO CAMERA for taking video

SKETCH BOOK

For detailing all notes and sketches of site layout colours etc.
PENS and PENCILS

For drawing and making notes in sketchbook
GLUE

For inserting items into sketchbook
STAPLES

For inserting into sketchbook
Blank cd / DVDs

For the final storage of files and for backup purposes
Usb stick

 for the storage of the files as we go and will also be using a PORTABLE HARD
DRIVE as well as a backup device so I should always have a copy of my files at
any time there will also be a copy of the files on my PC / LAPTOP and the MAC
at college.

Software Needed
Dreamweaver or kompozer
the reason I have decided on these are that I cannot access Dreamweaver in the
college I can use kompozer as this is open source and is free to download and
use these would be used to create the layout of the site

Photoshop or gimp or paint.net
the reason I have decided on these are that I cannot access Photoshop in the
college I can use gimp or paint.net as these are open source and so are free to
download and use and are used for the edit and optimisation of photos

IMovie or windows movie maker
I movie is only available on the MAC so I may need to use Windows movie maker if I use the pc this
allows a workflow that is not determined by being only in the college or only working on stuff
outside of college and these are used to compose video

Flash or openfx
This is for the creation of animation flash would be my software of choice but there is an alternative
if I need to have one


Colours and fonts

Not decided on a final colour scheme yet or fonts but do have a couple in mind

Am looking at blue background in line with the Telford logo colours and possibly using the same font
as the logo for the main headings and Georgia or verdana for the content area text


Layout

Looking at a 2 column layout
