To create a webpage with 5 or more vimeo videos related to a theme as a video gallery demonstrating what we learned from chapters 1-10.
I decided to base my theme on landscape time lapses that I found on vimeo because I’m really interested in nature and how nature can be expressed as art and when I thought of videos time lapses are a really scenic way to see the things that happen in nature so I thought it fit perfectly.
I made a couple different boxes and embedded the vimeo iframes within them and put those in a container within the body. I chose simple colors and tried to focus on the design elements in CSS. I added all of the content in the videos description and included all the links back to the sources, etc. I proofread those as well and fixed them in html and crated some lists to keep it all organized on the page.
I played around with colors. I color coded the boxes and the links.I added a horizontal bar across the top and linked my boxes with each video as link buttons, when you hover over they turn black. I thought this would enhance the users experience. Though I would’ve liked to add a back to the top button but I wasn’t sure where that would go in my document. I had trouble with the text design… I’m having trouble getting text to change fonts and colors but I did successfully indent each paragraph and center the videos and their captions on each block. I made the menu bar items italic.
I added a link at the bottom to a simple works cited page for both project 4 and 5.
I added a link at the top of project 4 to project 5 because I was doing them at the same time and they were due at the same time so I just thought it would make sense in navigating through.
I could not figure out how to separate the list items in my menu bar from the list items in my paragraph texts… but you can see in the html code I put a lot into just editing those text paragraph descriptions of each video it just got messed up on the page from my CSS making of the listed items menu bar.
