Process of making my Safety page Once creating my first page of the website, I was now able to move onto my other page that I had to complete. As Sara had now been allocated my other page and I was allocated the homepage, I worked on my other incomplete page which was the page about SafetyUsing the layout design for our website and my own layout designs, I got started on my page which was a lot simpler than the homepage that I had to create. I got straight onto creating my boxes in which Idecided to first create my text boxes. I clicked on ‘add’ and then clicked on ‘page part’s which then gaveme a drop down list of two tabs which I then clicked on ‘areas.’ This then gave me the option of clicking many different types of text box items. I decided to click on ‘simple’ which was a simple design.Once moving around my text box to my desired place on the page, by clicking on the text box it gave meperforated lines outside the text box in which I could then resize my object. By clicking on the object itgave me a drop down menu in which I could change the colours and other aspects of my object. I decided to click on ‘effects’ and the click on bevel which made my box look slightly more interesting.
By right clicking on my object I could then copy the item, I copied it twice in order to have three objects and then I placed them one under another. I then copied them three more times and placed them in asecond column besides my first text boxes. I also, made these three bigger in width. I left a little gap on the side as I though images could be added to make the page look a bit more interesting.I now decided to change the colours of my text boxes. I decided to make each row different colour. By clicking on the text box it would give me a list of options on how I could design that text box. I thenclicked on ‘Change colour’ I had to make sure that I was clicking onto ‘background’ and not ‘outline. I then chose the colours for each of my topics and tried to make the colours as unisex as possible.
Now all my text boxes were completely designed in a way that I felt looked alright, I then moved onto adding my text. I started with all the titles for my text boxes on the left hand side. I clicked on ‘add,’ then clicked on ‘text,’ which then gave me three options in which I clicked ‘titles.’ It then gave me the option of picking many different titles in which I clicked on the simplest title as I would then edit the title how I want. I then added in the writing that I wanted.I was going to leave the fonts and colours of the writing to last and I decided to move onto my text in the other text boxes. After gathering all the information I needed for this page, I started to insert theinformation. I clicked on ’add,’ then clicked on ‘text’ and this time chose the option of ‘paragraphs.’ It gaveme a box which I could then move about, resize and add my own information to. I did this for all three of the text boxes.
Finally, I had to edit some of the colours and fonts of my writing. When I double clicked on the boxes of my writing it them gave me a toolbar in which I could change the colours and the fonts of my text. I started of making all my texts the same font in which I made them all ‘Comic Sans MS’ as this is a verychild friendly font. I then made my text all in the centre and also changed the font colour of my texts on the left hand side. I felt that black was easily read, hence why I kept my main information in black.Finally, I had to edit some of the colours and fonts of my writing.
