Exercise 1

Exercise 1: Find 5 creatively designed websites

Thurs. Jan 13th
Email to:

Find 5 websites with well designed interfaces that were created using HTML and CSS and email the URLs to the teacher so we can make a compilation of them for a critique.

• Do not submit sites designed in Flash. Flash sites are quite different in that they can be fully animated and have more flexibility in the design.

Check to see if the site was created using Flash by going to the Browser menu: View - View Source. Then do a CTL - F and type .swf and see if there are any SWF (Flash files) attached to the HTML page.

• Do not submit blogs or wikis. People do not typically design these sites, they mearly populate them with data.
