WEB // Lorraines Sessions

Throughout Loraine's sessions on a Thursday Morning and Afternoon, we've been picking up on a few area's that we didn't fully understand when being taught by Simon. Basic CSS and HTML really interests me, this week we've been learning about lots of different helpful pockets of information. I've learnt that theres a huge difference between a web coding and website design, for example when being employed we wouldn't take on the role of linking websites with databases, maintenance and accessibility but instead designing the user Interface and the general look of the pages.

A few quick scamps below and ideas for the layout of my website. We did a session where we received feedback on our scamps, I found that the overall outcome was that I overcomplicate things too much. This seems to be a growing trend across the different aspects of graphic design, simple and plain design is effective plus will be much easier for users to navigate around. 

Below are a few of the bits of feedback I received;
