WIX WEB PORTFOLIO

WIX.com is a simple web page creator that lets you look at thousands of website templates and then save one and edit it. Remove their pictures, put in yours. Remove their text, put in yours. Changing color schemes, etc.. The best portfolio pages have a simple landing (or Splash) page, and then links to your gallery.

Design an online portfolio for yourself. Include your artwork you've designed this semester, year or so far during your time in class. Your name should figure prominently into the design.


Pages should include:

  • Index Page - Example Page - About You Page - Contact Page

HOW TO PRINT

Printing Your Files

We have a Lexmark Laser Printer (C792):

  • After you press print, a dialogue box will pop up.

  • Be sure the Lexmark C792 Printer is selected.

  • Check the orientation of your paper is correct (Portrait or Landscape)

  • Be sure to scroll down a bit and check the SCALE TO FIT MEDIA box.

  • Please DO NOT Print: Work From Other Classes, Memes you Just Made And Think Are Funny But Are Not, Pages of Solid Colors, Work that has nothing to do with our class.

  • You can lose your printing privileges is this happens

HOW TO TURN IN WORK

Turning In Your Assignments


Save And Upload To Focus

  • All work will be turned in using FOCUS/PORTAL. I will be able to grade your work, count your work and give feedback on your work using Focus.

Grading

  • Grades will be entered within two weeks of turning in your project. Some projects will take one or two days for you to complete, some will take several weeks. Please be patient as grading is completed. For every day a project due date is missed, a letter grade reduction will occur.

Saving Files

  • .PSD files preserve your layers, allowing you to come back and work on files with all your work preserved.

  • .JPEG files are compressed for display online. 300 resolution or better. Anything below is too blurry.

  • .PNG files are high quality and create a transparent background.

  • .AI files are native to Adobe Illustrator

  • .ID files are native to Adobe InDesign

We have a class network to save your class work:

  • It allows you to keep work in class that you are working on. This file contains a folder for your class work. It is where you can keep your design work in class or move things into from your One Drive or your Flash Drive if you do work at home.​
