The original design for this site was completed in January, 2008. For over a year, I waited for content, including a logo, to be provided. By the time the content was given to me in late March of 2009, I had learned many new CSS techniques, better image editing, and basic PHP. Below is the image of the original design created in early 2008:
By comparing the two images, you can get an idea of what I've learned in the past year. Not only have I gained a better understanding of how unordered lists function in CSS, I've also learned how to create gradient background images and clean up photographs with a program called GIMP. This, as well as the addition of the PHP-powered "You are HERE" top bar, has resulted in a site that has more texture, tone, and easier navigation than the original design.
