Too many other commitments this week such as Easter egg hunts and socialising events have hindered my progress. Normally the only time I can start on my coursework is at 9pm, unfortunately at this time I usually have a short attention span and being on computers all day means I am very tired. Hopefully by booking two days leave off work next week will allow me time to concentrate on with my final project.
I have found creating a personal website is very difficult. I defiantly am the worst client I have dealt with; I pick faults with everything because I know I can do better. Over the past few weeks, I have been researching and developing screen designs. Now on the 8th version of my personal website, I think I have done it. Initially, I focussed on a photograph portrait but due to comments realised the opportunities an illustrated self portrait could offer, creating a visual example of my illustration skills while ensuring a friendly, professional and aesthetically pleasing design.
The final, final design, keeps to the one layout, utilising large links this should aid usability while the one image will ensure that artwork examples are the focal point of the webpage.

This is my self-portrait in cartoon form:
By not adding any shading will be easier to generate a vector version. Next week, I intend to complete the vectored image and insert it into the webpage. I even have drawn my trademark tanktop jumper.
These are my new screen designs:
(still not sure what colours to use yet. I would like it to look professional but not boring)
Weekly Time Sheet:
These were my targets:
1. Research KS1 Maths and shapes
(I started but not have not completed to a satisfactory level)
2. Full development process = Target Audience, Competitive Analysis, Web Plan
(Completed Target Audience and part way through Competitive Analysis)
3. Create final portfolio screen designs
(After re-doing the designs I have created brand new set of screen designs)
Next weeks targets:
1. Gain some feedback on new portfolio designs and create initial website
2. Gather more research into KS1 Maths and develop resources
e.g. What am I shape quiz and division on the line
3. Complete Competitive Analysis and Web Plan

Initially, I thought it might be a great idea to enter the 2009 D&AD Open Brief: ‘What else do you do?’ however, following registering an interest searching through the categorises and selecting a web design brief that included everything required to begin the design process, I reconsidered my decision.
On the very slim chance I won and I do mean slim, I would get recognition of my efforts both by gaining an award and completing my project to a high standard, what a great achievement. Although I have to be realistic here, I am working on two projects and a presentation that all need completing in just over a months time. Time is something I have just realised is something I don’t have a lot of.
I have decided to do: The MLILB Creative Brief,
With a focus on the unit Ma3 Shape, space and measures
This is my time sheet from last Wednesday 25th March to Wednesday 1st April:
Full production schedule
If this requires to be created in a different format, I’m sure I will get to know when I am in college.
