1W10 “Sketches” Interactive Web Site

20 11 2006

The Project

This week I start reading, Peter K. Smith, Helen Cowie and Mark Blades Understanding Children’s Development 4th edition. Blackwell Publishing, 2003, for my project. I want to gather any information I can about the way Children think and see the world. My main research will be around the idea, if kid’s think alike and what factors do influence their way of thinking. I will read out the book this week and next week I will focus on specific subjects and questions about the factors that can affect children’s thinking. This week, I have also gathered all of my sons’ videos. These are videos that I shoot to help me understand the way my son is thinking.

For the next couple of weeks we are going to follow our own timetable. We will gather and research any materials related to our project until week 14th, where we going to develop and write our proposal.

I have finished my interactive web site and it’s ready to be uploaded on my server. I have imported many of my sketches, but I need to scan some more I have made this week.





1W9 Timetable weeks 9-14

15 11 2006

The Project

This week I made some research about interactive web pages and the looks of some interfaces. You can see clearly that I got a major influence from http://300themovie.warnerbros.com/ site. I think or better I am sure that this movie and the art work behind this movie will be my guidance for my project.

The MADA

For this week we had a task to make our own timetable for weeks 9 to 14. This timetable it will be about research and studding of the materials that we gathered until now, that has to do with our project and develop from there. My timetable is split into five categories; read, web, to do, research and reflect. Read section will cover the things I have to read to help me on my research. Web is the place where I can gather more information about my project. To Do is the things I have to complete each week. Research is the topic where I’m researching at the current week and reflect is the reflection of each week on my web blog.

I have import a screenshot of my interface at my blog where it shows the final stage of my sketch interactive site. I have also made a special section for my timetable where you can download the whole timetable in PDF form.

1W8 Trophy

9 11 2006

The Project

This week I came up with the title of my project; it will be called “trophy”. The story will be about a warrior that fights against a beast and as his reward he gets a trophy. This will be the theme of my story. The next couple of weeks I will work on the story. I’m not sure yet the details of my story, but I know more of the look I want to follow; I will make a bit more of a research about Frank Millers work.

The MADA

We finally made it and we complete our group project. I think we made a pretty good job and we deliver it on time. My piece, I believe, came out pretty good and my part of the project was well structured. I am sure we all worked hard and the result was better than what I expected to be.

My interactive web site is almost ready. I have made the interface and now I’m working on the flash file. Some sketches left to scan them and imported into the site. I think by the end of next week it will be ready
