JaySPRINGS22's Digital Identity

By JaySPRINGS22

Now that I have finished my portfolio, looking back on it I think I did a pretty good job for this being my first real graphic design class. I accomplished things I didn’t even know was possible. For example my first CSS challenge, I didn’t know how to do this coming into class and although I’m still not a CSS master I am now somewhat capable of being able to execute it. To the right of my CSS challenge is my first Prezi project. I had never heard of this website before coming to this class but now that I have had some experience working with it I have been using it for other classes...

Some of my work that I have done for Writing through Media this semester has been compiled and put on this webpage. I chose to keep the design of the website relatively simple because I wanted the projects and blogs to be found easily. I also chose to have a sidebar on every page of the site to remind people what they are looking at. In addition, I decided to use green colors because, apart from the fact that I like the color green, I always think of green as the color of biology. Green is the color of plants, the basis for the acquisition of energy in ecosystems.

Creating my portfolio was a huge challenge for me not knowing CSS very well and not working with designing much. I really enjoyed the process of coding and seeing what will come out when I input certain things. It was frustrating at times not knowing how to change something I wanted to change, however, most of the time I found alternate ways to change the looks of something. Upon finishing I felt very accomplished in what I had created.

Now that I have completed the portfolio, I want to show everyone my finished version. I showed friends throughout the process so it really made me...

Originally, my blog was all about gaming. However, now that I created a homepage and updated my "about" and added my own projects in there, this website feels more like me than ever. I think my website would attract people looking for writers or photoshoppers, and my blog and projects are aptly displayed to do so. I am somewhat pleased with my work. I would like to learn more about CSS in order to make it look nicer, but I am pleased with the outcome as it is. I think I am very marketable :)

My goal for this project was to create a website that displays my abilities as a computer programmer. The various artifacts that I have chosen to display represent some of my best and most interesting work completed during my time at UMW. In addition to sharing my work, this website provides a discussion on the background behind each project and my experience at UMW. Each artifact is accompanied by a description of the project, a discussion on the knowledge I gained as a result of working on the project, and an evaluation of the success of the project and any future work to be done. This...

American Girl
The name for my portfolio is “American Girl” because the two main concepts I have worked on during this semester for this class are cheerleading and the Dream Act. Even though I am also Hispanic, I have learned the customs of being American. When a person thinks of a cheerleader, they only think about a blonde American. The majority of cheerleading squads are American but they are slowly changing with new people trying it. Soon people will view cheerleaders differently because anyone can become a cheerleader. I still love the culture I come from but the U.S has showed...

At first I was very intimidated by this project, but I found it to be a different and creative way to use my brain. I liked the theme that I chose because it had some fun properties. Using the CSS I was able to tweak colors, font styles, and the appearance of text. I decided to change the name of my page because I felt like for the final project, the title of my profile page shouldn't be the title of my blog. I also made the decision to take the posts off the front page and to just have the About page as my home page. I feel that the site is easy to navigate with the links for pages...

TeaLeaf's Digital Identity

I am very happy with how my website has turned out! I spent a lot of time and effort on the overall look and went through many different changes and many different ideas before I found one that I was happy with looking at for long periods of time. I originally had the main colors being green and red, apple style. But after looking at it for any length of time I realized that I hated it! So then I had to start over from scratch. I cleared out all of the CSS and changed the entire layout of the design. I then began to just explore the different color patterns on ColourLovers. It was there...

The finished version of this site accomplishes my goals by reflecting my personality. The layout is very simple, the colors are earthy and complementary, and it showcases my work in a way that’s easy to navigate and shows I have experience with the system. Since one of the things I’m interested in as a career is social media, it’s really important for the website to reflect my design style as well as my writing capabilities. I went back and forth between adding more pictures to the site since picture attract more attention, but it runs the risk of becoming unprofessional since the only...

Galinor's Digital Identity

My final portfolio does not accomplish my goals, but it is a good starting place. It is attractive and professional looking, and allows for easy perusal of my work. I think that my target audience is divided in two. On the one hand, I want the page to be enjoyable for friends and fans (who am I kidding?) to come to in order to view my work. On the other hand, I want the page to make me look attractive to potential employers. I think that this dual focus will be successful, because having a running website which has visitors will improve my appearance to employers.

I am pleased with...
