Website Construction A website is constructed to provide information to the public and to facilitate some form of business transaction. That transaction may be a purchase or transfer of information. How your website appears visually depends on the target audience and kinds of media contained in your site. Text, Graphics, and PicturesPagesHyperlinks What are the ingredients of a website?
Website Pre-Production Before you begin to create your website there are two kinds of drawings you must become familiar with:
Wireframe Thumbnail A wireframe thumbnail sketch is a plan for how your specific individual web page will look. Images are often represented by shapes with an X through them. Body text can be represented by wavy lines. Headlines and subheadings should be written in clearly.
An organization chart shows the overall structure of your entire chart. The chart shows each page in your site broken down into sections and how the pages will link together. In website design and development the organizational chart will sometimes be referred to as a flowchart.
