Slides 3 & 4:
For this project I decided to do Web Design. For this project I used Weebly, a design tool that people use to create web pages, it gave me the ability to create and move text, images, and headings. The goal for this project was to create a website that was easy for people to use and is designed to show my most proud work to people. This project was successful in my eyes, this is because it shows all my work in a platform that works well and people can see easily.
Slides 6 & 7:
For my Quarter 2 project I decided to do Image editing. This focuses on using web editors to change images so they can make them into whatever they want. I used the tool Pixlr for this because it seemed like the best tool at the time. I ran into many problems while making it, like figuring out what the tools in design menu did. Like here, I didn’t know what the “lasso” tool did, and… well I figured it out.
Slides 9 & 10:
For last quarter’s project I decided to do Graphic Design. This is a project where you can design a road sign not including any words that displays a message that would be very useful to road users. I also used Pixlr for this project, I used the drawing section of the tool rather than the editing portion. This also included tools that would be useful for what you’re looking for. The sign I decided to make was a “No Skateboarding” sign.

Slides 14 & 15:
The most proud part of this class from this year was the first quarter project being completed. This was the website design project and it was the first time for me designing a website. This was very rewarding to me because Weebly is a good tool that I used and could see a lot of progress. The thing that I’ve most improved upon throughout the year by far has been time management. This has been a problem for me for my whole school career and these checkpoints and tools have greatly impacted this problem for the better. I now know how to design websites and create images for them
Through the graphic design project I can use the skills I learned of scaling and using tools online to create an image that makes sense. I want to be an engineer when I get older so this will help me in my field.
Speaking of blueprints, an idea I had for next year’s project for something that’s like graphic design. It has similar elements to the graphic design project, but it has more of an applied goal.
I’d recommend for anyone taking this class to definitely turn project checkpoints in on time. These do add up and will affect your grade. It’s better just to get them in on time when they’re relatively easy.
The project checkpoints do help us manage our time. This is the most valuable thing I learned this year. Time management is important to all of our classes and is a valuable life skill.
The last tip I’d give to anyone taking this class next year is to always try with the work that’s in this class. I know this class is an elective, but it’s still important to get your work in on time and complete it with effort.
