My assignment was to create a website based on my experiences on a certain day of the week. My design inspirations for choosing Friday was spilling my coffee and getting stuck in traffic all day long! I spent the majority of my time designing the layout. I didn't start on paper (bad), but jumped immediately into illustrator and started playing around. My initial plan was something less illustrative, not a long page scroll, and clean. It wound up turning the exact opposite. However, I just kind of went with the flow of where the design naturally took me.
