Transformation: Infographic to Website

So the goal here is to turn my finished infographic into a website with 3-4 internal functional links, external links to information, etc. It needs to be created in photoshop, migrated to dreamweaver and be based on a grid system. Architectural system is due Wednesday.

I’m doing research here based on other people’s well-designed websites for inspiration.

Jack and Jill and the Fool on the Hill (part 2)

So it turns out that I wasn’t completely clear on the assignment. We were not expected to make only one narrative out of the given lines from “Jack & Jill” and “Fool on the Hill”. Rather, we were meant to do six narratives with accompanying thumbnails, then one will be selected for a final to be presented – printed and matted.

The images will be contained in 6 4.5″ x 4.5″ squares on a black 15″ x 20″ board with 1.25″ horizontal gutters, a 1.5″ vertical gutter and 2.25″ vertical margins and 2″ horizontal margins.

Images will be made using provided dingbats file images.

Here are the six rewrites:

Jack fell down
and broke his crown
they can see he’s just a fool
but nobody wants to know him
day after day, alone on the hill
and he never gives an answer

Jack & Jill
went up the hill
but the fool on the hill
they can see he’s just a fool
but nobody wants to know him
and he never gives an answer

To fetch a pail of water
the man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
and broke his crown
day after day, alone on the hill
they can see that he’s just a fool
and he never gives an answer (((or: but nobody wants to know him)))

Jack & Jill
went up the hill
day after day, alone on the hill
the man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
and he never gives an answer
they can see his just a fool

Day after day, alone on the hill
they can see that he’s just fool
but nobody wants to know him
Jack & Jill
went up the hill
and broke his crown

Jack fell down
they can see that he’s just a fool
day after day, alone on the hill
the man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
and he never gives an answer
but nobody wants to know him
(((alternatively swap the last two lines)))

Jack, the fool on the hill

So, for Design Media, we’re required to take 6 lines total from “Jack & Jill” and “Fool on the Hill” and make a new narrative, then use dingbats the instructor provides to create a visual of the narrative.

Here is the new narrative. Visual will be done in illustrator (why illustrator for what seems to be a cut-and-paste assignment, I don’t know, but that’s what she wants us to use).

Jack fell down
and broke his crown
they can see that he’s just a fool
but nobody wants to know him
day after day, alone on the hill
and he never gives an answer

Hold your breath and count to ten…

This blog will be used for two purposes for the next fifteen weeks: proposals, research, information, and my own personal work from my photography 2 class and the same sort of information for my CDES Design Media class. New layout since I found the Pentax layout (vintage camera) in the layouts section. It honestly looks much cleaner and visually appealing than the last one. As always, no idea how much use this blog will actually see over the course of the next semester.

Other places I post:

  • Photo-Sylladex @ Tumblr: For research for photography and images for my inspiration journal.
  • Kunstinspiration @ Tumblr: For things that inspire me to create, references, tutorials, things that strike me.
  • Fotografierentaken @ Tumblr: The place where I post my own photography.
  • 14112 @ tumblr (tagged: art): My non-photographic art. It doesn’t have it’s own blog, it’s just on my main blog with all my fandom and other things. I don’t use that blog very much lately, primarily because I just don’t have a lot of free time. I also don’t really work on a lot of non-photographic art right now, but that is likely to change in the next 15 weeks with my Design Media class.
  • If, for some reason, writing is your thing, I do fandom works at AO3 but I haven’t really been doing much writing.

If there’s anything else you’re looking to know about me, go click that tagged art tumblr link and there’s a sidebar there that links to almost anywhere you can find me online.

Let’s see how much this gets used this semester. woo.
