Choose a website that is horribly designed. It must be a real site, though if the site you want to recreate
is too big, you should select a specific portion of it. Ideally, it is one you enjoy using, and have thought
‘man, if I build this, I would have done it this way…’ — so you’ve used it enough to have some real
thoughts about what you’d do differently. You will then choose a target user — the person for whom you
wish to restructure the application to improve his/her experience. Such a user may be one you might
encounter in real life (e.g., ‘single mothers, 25- 45, who live in the South’) or more imaginary (e.g., ‘wood elves’). You will then re-envision the interfaces and functionality of the web experience, in such
a way as to improve the user experience of that target user. You will also perform other UX tasks.
1. Find a crappy (poorly designed) website that needs a new design or design a new website
If existing site – provide URL and an explanation of what makes this a crappy site
If new – provide a brief description
2. Define your project objective
Define your projects goals and objectives, as well as success metrics
3. Define the sites requirements

You will pick a user interface to evaluate. This could be your favorite (or favorite to hate) website, grocery store checkout system, etc. You will then systematically evaluate the pros and cons of the selected software in terms of usabilty. Again, I want at least three peer-reviewed references for how you address usability.
Note: Make sure to satisfy 4 things below in this paper
– Length (more than 500 words)
– Focus & Details: There is one clear, well-focused topic. Main ideas are clear and are well supported by detailed and accurate information.
– Grammar: All sentences are well constructed and have varied structure and length. The author makes no errors in grammar, mechanics, and/or spelling.
– References: Writing is entirely in the author’s own words. References are appropriately and consistently cited. Limited use of Wikipedia or other non peer-reviewed sources (at least three peer-reviewed references for how you address usability).

All semester we’ve been learning about how designed things are constructions, made up of a bunch of parts. These parts work together to communicate something. Reference the information provided in Workbook no.2: Visual Thesaurus, and make a poster using the information provided by the client in Workbook no. 2 (The name of the event, the dates, the location (use Knoxville), etc), this was the assignment for week 3.
^extremely important that you follow these directions
Objectives:
1. To learn to use a collective of parts to construct a design
2. Reflect on the process that has been developing throughout the class
3. Apply knowledge of design to a practical project
You can use photoshop, adobe spark, or canva to make the poster. All are free.
Important: Submit your complete workbook as a DOC or PDF file. Submit your poster as an image file (pdf, png, jpg, jpeg) separately from the workbook PDF. There is no spot in this workbook for your FINAL poster design that the workbook asks you to make- that is because it should be submitted as a SEPARATE image or PDF file from whatever application you used to create the composition.
Posters are generally vertical compositions- make sure your poster is vertical. Make sure you included the required information about the event. Exact dimensions are up to you, but should be at least 8.5 X 11in (letter size), but something like 11X17in (tabloid size) may be better.
Note: to use custom fonts in an online image editor, you may need to only build a composition in Canva or Spark, and then export the comp out as an image, and add the typography in something like MS word, since you can use installed fonts in word. You can also use Photoshop or Illustrator if you already have them. Look up tutorials on how to make posters in your chosen software.
