Footer update

Well it seems I can't leave well enough alone.  After completing my Portfolio Website for TAFE, I am still fiddling to get it just right.  One of my friends suggested I create a footer with a bit more kick (like the ones seen over at Smashing Magazine). These creations are so much more  than just a by-line and  date, so I took up her challenge and here is the result of my efforts.

Unfortunately though, I just don't have the html/css knowledge to make it behave exactly how I want it to (a bit like my parenting skills atm…. But that’s another story).
So my final result is a bit plainer for the moment, but I have set myself the challenge to figure yet a way to get my footer how I want it, eventually.
Pop on over to My Portfolio Site and see what I came up with and let me know what you think.

Where has time gone?

It has been so long since I've posted here in my lil blog, but I have been so busy over the past few months undertaking Semester One of my Diploma in Graphic Design at BNIT.  As part of my Web Design unit I was required to create a website showcasing my creativity, here is the link if you are interested in checking it out Grace's Portfolio Site.  I would love to hear your comments via the contact form located on my site.
Over the next two weeks I am having a much needed holiday.  Hoping to get some visiting time in there and catch a movie or two with the kids.
The days here in Brisbane are gorgeous at this time of year.  The mornings are quiet chilly, but once the sun is up it is very tempting just to sit in the sun and read.  I am hoping to spend some time perfecting my skills in all those Adobe applications that I was introduced to at TAFE.  First on my list is Flash.  I love the animations that I can create so easily using this programme... though having said that I must admit to having to re-educate myself in some of the basics, as all the knowledge got squished in there with Illustrator, In-Design, Fireworks, HTML, CSS and goodness knows what else!!

Here are a couple of images I would like to share with you.  A random selection of tasks I completed at TAFE over the last few months...... enjoy....

This image of the human body, detailing the muscular structure, was created using Adobe Illustrator.  This was my lecturer's way of teaching us the 'Pen Tool'... talk about Pen Tool Boot Camp!! At least now I know exactly which of my muscles actually ache from sitting at the computer for so long :)

I created this Self Portrait using Adobe Illustrator.  I'm very happy with the side view, not so pleased with the front - but honestly does anyone actually like seeing pictures of themselves ??

Mirus Client Site.

One of the tasks earlier in the semester was to create a web site for a (fictious) client.  We were given the images and text to use and were required to spend approximately 7 hrs (one class) constructed the site. Here is my creation...

Mirus Assessment Site 


This is the background image I created for my Mirus Assessment Site.  I used a range of digital scrapbooking files to create a fresh and welcoming tone for this Flower Studio site.
