Clarification for what’s due Tuesday.

I had a question this morning regarding what’s due on Tuesday:

I was looking over the project sheet and I’m just a little confused as to what’s due this week. I know it states clearly that our wordpress site should be up with “sublevel pages”, “three visual concepts”, and a complete click-thru wireframe…I’m really sorry but I can’t seem to figure out what all this means. I’ve never made a website before, and I only have handdrawn sketches of my wireframes. How do I make a click-thru wireframe? What do you mean by three visual concepts and sublevel pages? I can’t seem to find anything on the blog to help..I clicked to the two links under the CSS panel, but I don’t understand what they do? If you could help me out that’d be great. I talked to Wesley about it in class but he seemed to think you’d be explaining more on the blog.

Here was my response:

What I mean by three visual concepts are samples of pages exploring different layouts (exploring WordPress templates will help with this) and apply some visual design to various layouts. So, at least three variations of layout, typeface, color, design elements, etc. Like we did with the moodboards for your money, only this time with your wireframes (keeping in mind that this has to work visually with your money system). In terms of the click-thru prototype, we’ll go through that in class on Tuesday. We’ll spend time working in class on this aspect.

So for Tuesday, bring your visual comps printed out (these can be done in Illustrator or Photoshop, with the document size set to 1024 x 768 pixels), have your WordPress set up and a template chosen (or a couple that you’re considering if you’re having trouble making a decision) and your sitemap (aka, a detailed outline of your site content, which should define what will go on sublevel pages).


If you guys have any questions about anything else, please email me!
