Assignment 5: Final Web Application (Component 2 – Design Mockups)
Due: Session 2, Week 9 (5% of final project grade)
Design three mockups of a single page for in-class critiques on session 2 of week 9. Mockups resemble the final web application’s interface and layout while wireframes are simplified boxes and text. Each mockup should include layout, color scheme, typesetting, graphics, and images. The mockups may differ from each other in the following ways: try different color schemes, select different typefaces and typesetting parameters, and experiment with the layout.
1. Design a minimum of three mockups for critique
2. Include distinct layout, color scheme, typesetting, graphics, and images for each mockup
3. Use Photoshop, Illustrator, or HTML/CSS to design the mockups
4. Render the mockups as either web graphics (PNG, PDF, GIF, JPEG) or HTML templates
6. Upload a the documents to the Dropoff Drive before class on session 2 of week 9
The mockups constitute 5% of the grade for the Final Web Application
