Let’s polish up those design skills.
I personally think the best way to learn is to benchmark off some pre-existing excellent interactive sites on the web. That way we strip Art Direction from the students to focus exclusively on production of existing styles that are doing something really nice.
We picked in random and students jammed on duplicating the sites all the way down to the % of drop shadow.
I demoed recreation of DesktimeApp.com as the example.
We jammed on: Jeep.com, VictoriasSecret.com, Facebook.com, LinkedIn.com, OldSpice.com, 37signals.com, Etsy.com, MarthaStewart.com, Twitter.com, Target.com, & Pinterest.com.
Next week we will post the progress.
