Week 6 Summary

This weeks lecture was on the design structure behind webpages and the stages of development  in designing a webpage.  Organization and navigation is key within a web page, even more so as a website  increases in size. Thats why its important to establish a consitant layout throughout the website and to have an idea of the hierarchy of information on each page.

The first step in designing is to create a flowchart that demonstrates how the individual webpages of the website will connect and relate to one another. This helps show the navigational flow of the website and works to organize the information that needs to be presented on the web pages. Storyboards are the next step when designing which are where the grids are established and show basic content (design,type,photos,navigation,etc..)of what the finished page should look like.
