So many coding projects lately…

Posted by jeremyclarke on March 30, 2005 · General

information design web page Just finished a somewhat insulting overhaul of our class website for Information Design class. Teacher asked us to “imagineer” some kind of project and hand it in, so I imagineered his unsemantic, innefficient, ugly and useless site into a lean, mean information serving machine.

Link to original site. Note the intermittent navigation and random hierarchy (if you know anything about HTML take a look at the code, it’s terrifying).

Link to sexy new standards compliant creative commons licensed version. (note that the use of all the disney properties is for uh… educational purposes… )

    Looking good Jer! Are they actually going to use it? I mean, what do they have to lose but an ugly website?

    right now i’m just debating whether I should quietly hand it in (saving face for the teacher) or make a presentation of it (which would ultimately allow me to explain it better than I would otherwise… I think i’m going to present it.

    Presenting it would be better. And I’m sure it’s no big deal for the teacher. I mean, didn’t he have to approve this project? (from what I read on your snazzy new page!) [“Imagineering” » a proposal approved by the professor by the end of January. (20%) Due 30/03, http://simianuprising.com/398t/assignments.html ]
    He knows you’ve probably moped the flodd with him webpage and it’s a compliment to his class that you would want to spend time fixing up his ~crappy~ webpage.
