  1. 1. FdA Web Design Wakefield College Hello and welcome This is assignment was set by Wakefield College For their Web Design Foundation Degree. We was tasked with creating a website for a object of interest. This object needed to be within 100 meters of my home and have no current website. This Presentation will be to show how I have addressed the task I was given and explanes my process of the website design. Andrew Gomersall http://www.andrewgomersall.net/
  2. 2. FdA Web Design Wakefield College Presentation by Andrew Gomersall Mosaic Timeline of Woodkirk. Andrew Gomersall http://www.andrewgomersall.net/
  3. 3. FdA Web Design Wakefield College When I first started this project I needed to make some decisions. - Which object I would choose. - Why do I think a website is needed. - Would users find the website interesting. Andrew Gomersall http://www.andrewgomersall.net/
  4. 4. FdA Web Design Wakefield College After deciding to design a website for the mosaic timeline I did research into who made these mosaics and was surprised to find it was a local community effort. -The Stone was donated by Marshall’s -The tiles were donated by Al Murad -The designs were by a local artist named Melanie Wilks. Even the local primary school had competition to design the last mosaic. Andrew Gomersall http://www.andrewgomersall.net/
  5. 5. FdA Web Design Wakefield College The next step I took was to decide what colour schemes that would look good and work well with the images of the mosaic timelines. After looking at the images I desired to go for a nice gray and black main theme so the colours of the mosaics stood out. Andrew Gomersall http://www.andrewgomersall.net/
  6. 6. FdA Web Design Wakefield College The gray colour I have chosen is meant for the background and used for the typeface colour when on black background. The black colour I will be using more as an outline colour rather than a background colour for example the navigation bar will be black and a lighter black when you hover your mouse over it. Navigation Bar Example: Homepage Gallery Andrew Gomersall http://www.andrewgomersall.net/ Contact
  7. 7. FdA Web Design Wakefield College The typefaces I have chosen for my web design are going to be: Charlemagna std Charlemagna typeface will only be used for the heading and the navigation bar of the website as this is a display typeface. Adobe Garamond Pro For the main body content I have desired to go for a subtle serif that has also has a classic feel that suits the timeline design. Andrew Gomersall http://www.andrewgomersall.net/
  8. 8. FdA Web Design Wakefield College The Mosaic Timeline: These are the six images of the mosaics I’m making the website for, seeing these up close and how the gray slabs feature a nice gray background is the reason behind my colour choice. Andrew Gomersall http://www.andrewgomersall.net/
  9. 9. FdA Web Design Wakefield College - The top section I wanted to add a heading. - For the main image I wanted to feature the whole time line. - For the bottom half where the 6 columns are I wanted enplane why each design was used. - On the right side column is where I would add sidebar to show who helped make the time line.
