New @TrudyNursery website is officially launched!
Contact page was designed simple and straight to the point.
There are two contact forms –
- allowing users to contact Hull Ice Arena straight from the page
- allowing users to request being contacted by Hull Ice Arena staff
Google map with location is shown to help users find the arena – pointer used is in the same style as icons to keep continuity in design. Also contact and address details and social media icons.

http://www.cacoo.com – working screen
I personally prefer cacoo.com better because it gives me more freedom in what I want to design. There are options to choose from templates that users want to design for – tablet (landscape/portrait), desktop, mobile, Iphone, Ipad.
This is what users can design in this program, full mock up of the site but also wire framing (this template was already design by cacoo.com!)
Today, I visited William Wilberforce museum and Street life museum of transport in Hull Old Town.
William Wilberforce museum
William Wilberforce museum hasn’t got ‘old’ touch, what it actually looked like back in days. They took everything out of the rooms while refurbishing it and left empty rooms with no furniture (it used to be there before) filled with big banners with a lot of written text that nobody will ever read and especially little kids/teenagers. Now, the house is full of information about slavery but it doesn’t say anything about the guy who had merit in it. Outside look of the building is great, you can imagine it in old times but as soon as you walk in to the house it’s a big disappointment. All walls and big traditional stairs are painted white and there’s no ‘old feeling’ how it supposed to be when you walk in to the museum. The first room has a little bit of information about the life of William Wilberforce and his family, there are two coats and a lot of books that you have no idea what are about. As you continue walking around the house, you find a lot of information about slavery but there’s nothing mentioned about life of this man in this house and I assume that this is what people look for when they visit this house. For me personally was very disappointing that every time I walked into any room, I had no idea what it was used for. Finally, I found a little bit of information about actual house itself through presentation on the screen.
Street life museum of transport
Street life museum of transport was exactly opposite to William Wilberforce museum. I walked in and I felt like I went back in time. Old cars, trains, streets, shops…everything was made like I was actual in that time. The museum was divided into different time periods and topic sections which was great and gave you information you needed. Interaction was just amazing…ability to walk in to old shop and see what it looks like, read about it, see photo from actual time when it existed, watch presentations on screen; all that interact people with the museum very well and give an amazing experience which lacks in William Wilberforce museum.
I had to think about how my brochure will fold that is why I did research about it. This picture below found on Google helped me to make my mind up –
I really liked 8 – page triple fold/accordion as it was easy to design and when I did research about it on Google, I found very nice inspirations.
I really liked it because it is simple design, straight forward and also it is in similar colours that I used for my brand identity.
I intend to keep my brand identity colours and logo from semester 1 and use it for design of my brochure.
However, after one of lectures I’ve changed my mind about how my brochure will fold. I decided to keep it simple as a magazine in format 2×10. The reason why I want to work with this format is that while I was doing my research I found out that it is the best size of brochure to hold in hands and it is also format that people tend to bin less as it doesn’t take a lot of space on table.
I went to Google and looked at similar brochures that I’d like to create. There were so many of them but what really grabbed my attention was this one –
It is perfect design for me as I used similar design for my creative package/letter head-
Layout is very professional and this is exactly what I want to create in my design.
On today’s lesson we were working in Photoshop. It was different to what we used to do before as we worked only with Illustrator. It was working with a lot of layers and masks, it was interesting lesson.
This is what I created:
Way of working:
During this module students are introduced to the history, theory and contextualisation of their disciplines. The Level 4 programme modules establish the interactions between practice, theory and professional context essential to creative and academic development.
•To introduce key issues, concepts and vocabulary appropriate to specialist disciplines
•To develop the ability to deconstruct and analyse cultural products and processes; their meanings, production and reception
•To introduce historical and theoretical perspectives
•To develop research, study and communication skills relevant to a range of written and spoken outcomes
Teaching & Learning Methods
This module will draw on a wide range of learning and teaching methods including lectures, seminars, discussions, presentations, resource based learning, 1:1 and group tutorials.
The specific methods to be used in each instance of delivery will be determined at an annual planning event, and the outcomes recorded on a standard chart to be included in relevant route / award documentation.
The learning outcomes will be assessed through:
A range of assessment methods is used within the module. The tasks, required evidence and assessment criteria will be clearly explained to students within a module outline and/or assignment brief.
Assessment items will include:
Essay – 30%
Verbal/visual presentation – 20%
Coursework – 50%
Coursework will reflect discipline specific requirements but may include:
Analysis and critical perspectives tasks
Case study- text based seminar or task
Supporting file containing notes, research, drafts, planning, reflection and evaluation, independent study
Assessment will be staged to provide both formative and summative feedback to students. Formative feedback is on-going through the tutorial and seminar process and may include peer feedback. There will be written feedback on summative assessment. Please see Assessment section of programme specification for further information.
