Web session 1 with simon

Root folder - contains all the elements & content of the website
Subfolder named images contains all 'live' media files

Web Standards

Size// measured in pixels.
Design for lowest common denominator (600 x 800)
if you follow all the web standards you won't stand out against other websites

Fonts// Fonts are not embedded onto website but on users computer / use standardized fonts
to solve this issue you could use and image / though this is a much larger file and takes longer to load, which isn't useful if people on average only take 5 seconds to decide if they like a webpage or not.
Images are also not search able unlike text

colour// RGB / design for screen / only 255 colours to choose from
photoshop select web colours only. use hexadecimal code for html/css coding

images have to be specifically saved for use on the internet
jpeg - universal file format / form of image compression
save for web and devices / options for compression
(keep file names under 8 letters/digits and in lowercase)
Always save the image as the size it should be used for

When designing a website always try to keep it at a maximum of 8 pages

photographs of look book

final poster with images

Using the layouts I had experimented with for the invitation, I explored inserting a background image to the poster. It worked really well with the type and after fading the image down a little looked perfect.
