Week 5

Seems like we just started class.  Week 5 already?  At least time is traveling fast 🙂  I am really enjoying this class.  Lots of reading, but worth it.  I understand so much more than I did when I first began this class.  Of all of the things I have learned, understanding  HTML code would my greatest accomplishment.  I have been helping a friend keep up with the weekly schedule on their church website, but every time I came accross an HTML issue, I ran from it because I just didn’t understand how to manipulate the code.  Well, last Sunday as I updated the info, I faced the code head on and was successful!

This week’s reading from “The Principles of Beautiful Web Design”

This week’s reading was on texture.  I am one of those people Jason talked about that keeps forgetting that lines are not just about dividers, borders & stripes.  Line is the foundation of art, drawing and design.  The chapter really opens my mind up about the use of line in my designs.
