Final Project Proposals

I have two ideas and will be making both websites regardless of which one I choose to do for the project.

The first will be a website for the pet services business my wife is starting, called “Cross Your Paws”. To start off she will be doing mostly pet sitting and dog walking but she wants to do adoptive, behavioral, and animal-social consultations. I would get most of the imagery by taking pictures of our pets and possibly some of the Baltimore SPCA and Crofton Veterinary Center, as we have ties with both organizations. The written and conceptual content I would develop with my wife during creative brainstorming sessions. I am particularly interested in this project because it involves my wife and I working together as a team. The kuler color scheme I have developed for it is called Cross Your Paws

The second idea would be a design portfolio of sorts called alter.native. I have a website, alter.grounds, which is currently being developed in flex to go along with the recording label I’m starting up, and I have a separate page set up for its design, as well as a few other sites I’ve built. As I do more design work it would be nice to be able to incorporate everything into the design arm of alter.grounds, which I call alter.native. The site would be set up to show my photography, cover designs, web designs, and personal expressions (probably either a blog or poetry collections). It would especially be nice since alter.grounds is so chopped up at the moment while we’re working on its development and the current version of alter.native is boring and without content. The kuler color scheme I have developed for it is called Favorite Hoody.

  1. You are a very ambitious person.
    I think the pet business would be a good one for the project. This way you could have some feed back before you put it on the web. The professor has good input and sometime I find when working on things I need that outside comment from someone who knows what might work or give you ideas that you hadn’t thought of. Good luck with whatever you choose.

  2. Either of these would be great options.

    The Cross Your Paws site would be a nice portfolio piece – does your wife have a logo or any identity yet for the business? Be careful not to take on too much for this project – ie, designing a website, AND logo AND writing all of the content AND photography might be too much in the allotted time.

    Let me know which way you decide to go!
