Navigating the Web from Computer Programming Basics
While computers may have made a lot of people lazy, it has also made them want to play with them and want to be the best. Today’s computer programming skill sets can be easily transferred to any art or hobby and it can serve as the basis for so many unique creations.
Web developer Jason Scott wrote an article on his website interviewing several professional designers about creating effective web sites using interactive images. He started his article off with a simple example. Design student Julianne Aguilar and web designer Jason Scott were asked to create a scenic shot that best showed the moon moving across the sky. This provided Scott with information about the moon’s motions as it went across the night sky and then was given a color palette for a painting (complete with a story about why the moon moves across the sky). Once it was all complete and ready for submission, both Aguilar and Scott were invited to a showroom where their completed projects were on display. It was here that everyone had the opportunity to see their unique creations and learn more about their creative process. Scott’s post concluded with a positive message about how that individuals like Aguilar and Scott provide an example of how anyone could “design” a web site using web design applications like Photoshop, Paper, and InDesign.
