Site Inspire

For this assignment I found a site design that I really enjoyed though the showcase site called “siteinspire.net”   The site was built for a Video Promo Producer (video is my thing) named Martha Mclean.  It was designed by Dale Sattler. One thing that I really like about this site is it allowed Martha to create eye catching headlines for all of her work, it was also very clean, simple, and interactive… although one downside is that sometimes it was difficult to navigate in that the projects which she had to display would randomly fly around the screen.

My Previous HTML and CSS experience – Assignment Numero Uno

Well hello everybody, my name is Tim Hanson, I’m a second year video student and therefore have absolutely no html or css experience! None the less, I am very excited to be in this class and I’m ready to jump in and figure this stuff out.  I don’t know that I’ll be able to apply much of this to my career, but I do know that I would like to be able to maintain my own website on which I can show my work.  Anyways, bear with me during this class and don’t laugh when I ask a stupid question (I guarantee you I will!)
