Web design and production
One of our class assignments in my Web Design and Production class was to pick a local company and redo their website. I chose one of my favorite local coffee shops, Steynberg. A mostly locals spot. Steynberg prides itself on being more than a coffee shop, but also contains an art gallery and hosts many live events. I want to capture their essence through a clean white background,like an art gallery, and simpled design highlighting the unique elements of coffee shop.
Predominately a designer, I learned the importance of considering the end product during my design process. I was able to use my HTML/CSS understanding to code a site for Steynberg, but in the process I was shown how crucial the relationship between the design and then execution of coding is. I will probably not be a professional solely in web development, but my understanding of the relationship between it and design has made me a more thoughtful designer as a whole.
