Project 7: Web Page

  • Project Screenshot


  • Description:  This is a web page created to showcase a logo that I made.
  • Process (Programs, Tools, Skills):  I used Notepad ++ to edit the HTML and CSS. I had never really worked with these before.  It took me a lot of time to figure out what goes where.  I used an already made CSS code and I changed the colors, text, images, and angles on the things in the HTML.  I used photoshop to make colors for the banner at the top.
  • Message:  Hudson Soap is an environmentally friendly soap.
  • Audience:  Anyone who wants a clean environment and a clean body.
  • Top Thing Learned:  I learned a lot about how to code.  It was interesting playing around with the padding and other margin settings.  It took me a while to figure out how to insert images and also to round out the border.
  • Color scheme and color hex:  Monochromatic, Black and white and grey.
  • Title Font Families & Category:   Windy Rain, Script;
  • Copy Font Families & Category: Verdana, Sans Serif;
  • Changes made to the CSS:  I changed the text, the shape of the border, I added a banner.  I changed the logo and the color of the text and boxes.  I added an image for the background.  I also changed the website and added my own.

  • Process (Programs, Tools, Skills):  I used InDesign and Illustrator to create my letterhead and my logo.  I used Illustrator to create my logo.  I used the paint brush and simple shapes.  I then filled in the shapes I made and grouped them together.  I placed my logo into InDesign and created the letterhead.  Then I placed my logo onto a separate document and made the front and back of my business card.  I saved the changes and copy and pasted my cards into Illustrator.  I used the art board to resize the images to fit the page.
