5 Day 5

í Assignment 6: Research and present to your group
July 26, 2013

Due by end of day

Commit to a topic or direction for a website project. In keeping with the presentations and discussion yesterday, begin this process by researching and sketching. Research may include any of the following:

  • Collecting and generating content
  • Understanding the context in which the site will exist: competitors, audience
  • Visual research: precedents for how the site might look and feel
  • Technical inspiration or tools that may make your sketches a reality

The form of your research will vary based on your project idea and your research methods. Consider a Pinterest site, a tumblr blog, a Google Doc with links, Evernote, Keynote presentation (or pdf), digital images, or a combination of these. Present your research to your working group at a meeting at the end of the day for feedback.

You may find sketching at this point helps, too, especially if you’re sketching as a research tool.
