This was my final design and i had gone with the navigation being in the top header along with the logo.
Site Map to follow
On my second design i thought i would try and copy the scrolling effect which i really like but thought to myself this is high end stuff and even some top web developers can’t even do this. The scrolling effect is when, you launch a site the first page is basically on long page cut into different sections. so when you click lets say ‘Sport’ it will scroll down to that section on the same page and show the content on their. I think its a really good idea for a portfolio because you can have the subjects as the first page and each section a different subject. The only negative thing about this is that if i get to year 3 the page will get longer and longer and the content will get bigger and bigger and this full website will grow in the number of megabytes that are held, which means it will take even longer to load up the age on a basic connection which is not good for the user.
Final Design to Follow
On my first design i like the idea of having my navigation bard attached to my header so that the use instantly thinks that it will be at the top of the page, which it will be. on this design i was only testing the navigation but i like the look of it on the top, then all i was left to do is create a logo that what show me off and then have the navigation style as like that with each button being separated off by a dark L shape. But remember this was only a idea and i had plenty more to come.

When we was given the assignment of creating a website in flash i thought along with others that it would be a great idea to model my flash website design around my portfolio website i am doing for interactive communication design, but throwing in some flash elements that i have learnt and you will see throughout my planning of this website.
Here is a template of what my flash website will look like :
and i am thinking of more ideas to implement some flash elements i learnt off the lessons we had

After my first couple of designs i have finally picked my final design. I cant wait to present it in my presentation just to get abit of feedback so if i had any improvement i could amend them straight away. Here is my Final Logo:
Humber Bridge Project
I have decided that after our tutorials last week i am going to stick with the Humber Bridge project because it symbolizes Hull, and used to be the largest expansion bridge in the world. When i talked to you, you said that various people have done the Humber Bridge project before but have only taken shots from this side of the River Humber. But this is where i come to a great advantage i can drive so it would be with no problem for me to go to Barton and take shots from that side. Also you said instead of just taking different angles of the bridge why don’t you actually stand on the bridge and take shots off it which i will show in various photos in my portfolio.
