I'm currently finishing up phase 1 of Graphic Interface Design at USU. We were assigned to keep track of our progress in the class by updating our blog, of which I obviously did a fantastic job. It's basically a web design class focusing on HTML, CSS, Dreamweaver, and Flash. We had three core assignments: an HTML site created using CSS, a kinetic typography animation using flash, and finally a Flash website, all based on content of our choosing.
First off, my HTML site is sort of a watered-down database of Quentin Tarantino movies. Inglourious Basterds came out right as we were assigned this project. You can view it here.
Second was the kinetic type animation. We were assigned to chose a 30 second clip of dialogue from a movie and animate it using typography and Flash. You can view mine here. I'll have it up on youtube soon so it will play easier in this window, but it takes like half a day to upload on their server.
And finally my flash site. With some help from my dear friend, Ashlee Clapie, I was able to come up with a subject that wasn't some sport my family does or some random hobby (not that there is anything wrong with that) that I could still make a cool site without things getting all gimmicky. I decided to make a directory site about four famous or up-and-coming photographers that have (recently or not) focused on black and white images. You can view that here.
Let me know what you kittens think. I'll be posting much more as soon as finals are over (woot!).
