I am glad to present my Passion Page: ‘ MINIONS’. Development of the website, although partly crated by David already, was more difficult than suspected. The reasons were on one hand that it was already partly built by someone else and I had to look a bit for the parts which meant to be changed, and on the other hand there were small details which took time to put the way I wanted. The process of changing the template in Photoshop was fairly easy despite the fact of difficulty of finding good resolution pictures. I decided to put them in the grid which I think is suitable for the design of this particular website.
Next came the change of text in the body of website which wasn’t difficult except of maybe the lack of information about the Minions, but I decided to present more by adding the links to the short videos featuring them. The change of colour scheme was definitely important for a design and I decided to go with the colours which best fit the characters- blue and yellow. The worst nightmare was with finding out how to put 3 pictures next to each other and stop them to appear vertically, and after thinking that I have achieved success – apparently not in Mozilla Firefox as I found out in the class.
What I have learnt from the experience is whatever you want to achieve with your website is definitely doable – you just have to research it properly. The other thing is MAKE SURE YOU TEST IT on as many browsers you can so you won’t have any surprises.
I really enjoyed doing the Passion Page website and in my humble opinion it went quite well.
The other student’s Passion Pages went really well as well with exceptions of few forgetting to put their images in the root folder or messing up something in CSS which was after hard to locate. I was definitely impressed by Kate’s design and tricks that she used. I also liked designs of Rakeem and Huss.
