Answer the following questions, with your answers formatted as an ordered list in an HTML document that you upload to the server. Make sure you use the folder and file name specified below.
font-weight, font-style, letter-spacing, text-transform, text-decoration. Place each sample on its own line. Include a label for the group that shows which css property the group demonstrates. Include a label for each line that shows which value is used. Style the whole page to present your samples cleanly and clearly.
Over the next few weeks, you will be designing and building a web page that presents a recipe. We'll start that project by finding/choosing a recipe, and doing some design research. This week, you will upload an HTML document that presents the following:
The CSS Diner exercise below is a fun and effective way to learn about more complex CSS selectors. Work your way through the set of challenges in the CSS Diner link below.
Then, walk through the short lesson on pseudo-classes and pseudo-elements.
Finally, use the Research Evaluation Template link for our in-class evaluation exercise.
Based on your research and the presentation in class, you should be ready to create three sets of low-fidelity prototyes for your recipe page. The objective is to experiment with the visual arrangement of elements in a fast, low-commitment way. You probably have a picture in your mind of what a recipe 'should' look like. Sketch that, but then set it aside, acknowledge that your first solution might not be the best one, and take a run at it from a different perspective!
At minimum, each set should include a portrait-oriented mobile view and a landscape-oriented laptop-view. Don't 'crop' the sketches at the bottom of the device, sketch the full layout. You don't need to spell out words, but if it's not obvious what a box or mark represents, label it!
Deliver your sketches as images collected and presented on a single HTML page, organized and labeled appropriately.
At this point you should have everything you need to produce two sets of high-fidelity mockups (each set consisting of a mobile view, and a desktop view). Push yourself to create two different stylistic approaches, rather than two permutations of the same idea.
Use whatever tool(s) you prefer: Figma, XD, Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop, anything that allows you make and evaluate your style choices with real content. Deliver the mockups as jpg files embedded in an HTML page. Alternatively, you may link PDF file(s) from your html page, if that's a better way to output from the tool you use.
While it makes sense to be considering how you will ultimately build these layouts in HTML, for now we'd rather see your ideal visual representation of this recipe, without being overly constrained by any concerns about your technical abilities in HTML/CSS.
Recreate the structure of the background image from the starter page for this assignment. The starter page includes the CSS link for the required font, and a background image that you will "trace" using HTML. Create each of the five horizontal panels using the <section> element. Use your own images and colors. There are various ways to complete this assignment, but your final HTML should be very close to a pixel-perfect copy of the background image. As you complete each panel, add the panel's background image or background color last (otherwise you won't see the other elements you need to trace).
This assignment will use virtually everything we have learned thus far: type styling, complex selectors, foreground and background images, image optimization, the HTML box model, floats, grids, and shared classes. Referring to those previous lessons will help, but not every answer lies in a previous lesson. Your creative adaptation of what you've learned will be important.
Notes: use the Chrome browser to avoid any browser rendering discrepancies. You'll need to link to the Google font 'Archivo Narrow'.
BE ADVISED: This assignment may require considerably more time than the exercises we've done thus far. Plan accordingly.
