Due Tuesday: 2 web designs

Just a reminder: on Tuesday's class, at the beginning of class, you need to have your two web designs done (in photoshop). I want to have examples of the home page and a second-level page, so we'll be looking at a total of 4 images (2 designs x 2 pages = 4).

Flourishtivity Summary

Team Flourishtivity

-This site gives a breakdown of Ch. 8 of Amabile’s book. It discusses 8 environmental factors in work place that will help to foster creativity in the minds of the individuals.

-This is a short blog discussion on how creativity is killed. We felt that we could gain some insight on how to promote creativity by seeing what things can kill creative minds and ideas.

-This website expands on the information from Amabile on how creativity is killed. We liked some of the information that was presented and feel that it will be helpful to us.

-This blog outlines Amabile’s 3-steps to organizational creativity. Once again, we felt it contained some interesting information that we would be able to use.

-At our last team meeting, I felt like we were finally able to get on the same page and I think things are starting to come together for us. There are still some items that were are not sure about and we are starting to run into trouble when trying to find information on Amabile, as most of the websites contain similar information. Overall, I feel we have a fairly decent grasp on what is going on.

Assignment for Thurs (2/10)

Just a reminder -- have your wireframe and flowchart for the site you'll be making for this class. Again, you can use the wireframe/flowchart for the site that you did before as a sort of guideline.

Also, sign up for free hosting if you haven't already.

I am torn between two ideas:

1. The website will be the public face of an organization devoted to integrating classical music in daily life, particularly in the life of young children. Because young children do not acquire their own music, the site’s audience will be the parents and educators of the children, patrons who want to support the organization, and eventually music supervisors for media projects. The site will describe the projects of the organization and will have links to other organizations which offer music resources. Related websites are: for webcast music. This site is illustrated in the style of a children’s book. It could be the best example. The other sites are more like resources than a comprehensive site. for kindergarten teachers, a list of activities to accompany classical compositions for a short overview of how classical music affects the brains of babies and children for 32 ways to promote classical music for music products for sale, could have an affiliate program for our website

2a. A new website for a Thanksgiving concert or 2b. for other ideas to enhance the spiritual dimension of Thanksgiving. The audience for these projects would be music lovers, teachers and home-makers interested in Thanksgiving activities for the family. Related sites are:

I would like to make a website for myself that shows photos that I take and videos that I edit. This would be like a profile of the stuff that I've done. It would also provide me with a copy of my stuff that I can easily show to friends and family anywhere. I think that it would make a a nice way to showcase the work, rather than just sending someone to vimeo or flicker.\

Websites I would like to base mine off of
