Any good web project should start with just enough research, and this one is no different.

This is a team project (unless you’re working individually).

WHAT TO DO

On the day the project is assigned, you would have met with the client to determine project goals and design aesthetics.

    After reviewing these answers, visit 3 websites that are similar to your client’s website and take notes on what is common and different between each website.

    After conducting your overview, develop a short document that communicates the following:

    FORMAT AND TEMPLATE

    You can use whatever program you’d like to write this assignment - just produce a PDF at the end. You do NOT have to write it in HTML.

    To help get you started, I’ve provided a Google Docs template containing the basic headings and sections you’ll need. However, you can format however you think is best.

    HOW TO TURN IN THE ASSIGNMENT

    We will turn this in at the beginning of class. Just have your research document (PDF) ready at the beginning of class.
