Throughout your ePortfolio, you will be expected to reflect on your work and processes. Reflection, however, is not simply for thinking about how you write but also how and why you DESIGN! In your design statement page, you will show your drafting processes and also describe your vision. Click here for more about background colors and the like.
Design is always more than sparkle and surface beauty. Every word, graphic image, weblink, and color scheme that you choose will convey a mood, tone, identities, and meaning. From the very first decisions that you make with your ePortfolio's colors, design, and set-up, you are communicating meaning and offering a message about your work and worth. Take control of that!
In your design statement, address all of the following:
- Explain your header. What does this visual design mean for you? What do you want people to think about when they see it?
- Explain your background image. What does this visual design mean for you? What do you want people to think about when they see it?
- Why did you choose these colors for your site? What do these colors mean to you? What do these colors communicate?
- What does the title of your site mean? How does this title relate to the design choices that you have made? To the choices you have made about what to include here?
