Navigation :

Navigation facilitates movement from one Web page to another Web page. It plays a crucial role in getting site visitors to view more than just the home page.

Visual design aims to shape and improve the user experience through considering the effects of elements and color on the usability of products and on their aesthetic appeal.  

Responsiveness :

Responsiveness is measured by how good the same website looks accross multiple devices having different dimensions and across different properties of devices.

Intuitiveness :

 Intuitive designs direct people’s attention to tasks that are important. In the end, an intuitive design focuses on experience.

Load time and performance :

Web performance is the objective measurements and the perceived user experience of load time and runtime. 

Themes

Beginner

For everyone who has selected the Beginner category in the form your task is to create a personal portfolio site.  A portfolio site is a virtual interactive resume that companies can have a look at and get to know more about you. As an aspiring front-end developer, having a portfolio site is an absolute necessity. findmatthew.com is one of our favorite portfolio sites you can have a look at for inspiration.

Advanced

For everyone who has chosen the Advanced section you guys will be making a website for selling Coffee Beans.   Grab your dose of caffeine and knock us out with your research and design. Have a look at these websites we love from AppleTeslaOnePlus for inspiration.


We expect everybody to stick to the level that they initially chose and make sites relevant to their specific themes only.
