For due dates, as with all projects in this class, see the course schedule.


Your final project will be graded on craft and execution, the quality of graphic design decisions (issues like image choice, type handling, layout), and on interaction and user experience questions (issues like site structure, usability, and navigation). Present work for each critique—process is also part of your grade.
