Semester Project (Overview)

Note: In this scenario, I will play the client and the business, while based on some actual businesses, will be fictional


Why this type of project? This allows you, the student, to apply what you’re learning in class to a real-world scenario. By thinking critically and using these principles, you’re developing long-lasting development and design skills that can be used to land you a job or complement your existing areas of expertise.


You can work in pairs or alone on this project. Each group or student will work on a slightly different (but largely equivalent) web project. We have a number of "stock" companies that you can select from that have existing assets you can use (some branding, content, background info, etc.) You may also choose another small or local business of your own, but you will be responsible for assembling content and assets to use for the project. Both approaches are valid.

The "stock" clients are as follows:

(Companies are claimed by a first come, first served basis. Each group will need to select a different company to work with.)


You and your boss have worked together to develop a brief project schedule.
