  1. A Business Analysis of the Boject Oriented Hypermedia Design Model

    OOHDM is developed through a four step process which includes; conceptual design, navigational design, abstract interference design and implementation. (Rossi, et al) Conceptual Design Phase During the conceptual design phase the model of the application domain is created using object oriented modeling principles. The creation of the application domain determines the discourse of the application. There are two types of objects that are represented in this phase: the objects that provide computational support and the objects that will be perceived as nodes in the navigational design phase. (Rossi et al) The navigational design phase is very important to the success of any hypermedia application because navigation is what separates hypermedia design from other applications.

  2. Design a suitable logo for the business or organisation of your choice

    E.G What is a pixel? A pixel is the most basic component of any computer graphic. Pixel stands for picture element. It corresponds to the smallest thing that can be drawn on a computer screen. Every computer graphic is made up of a grid of pixels. When these pixels are painted onto the screen, they form an image. This grid of pixels is called a bitmap.

  7. Dear Auntie Gladys and Uncle Jack,

    My friends and I, are at the top of the class for this subject but my biggest ambition is to become a barrister. Having a graphic design GCSE grade will not help me to become one so I think it could be a complete waste of time. Although on the other hand, if I fail at becoming my dream then I have something to fall back on such as a clothes designer or other interesting creative occupations. I am trying extremely hard to make my dream into reality.

  8. ICT - Microsoft Publisher, Pizza restaurant menu.

    It can print the menu in special folds such as three-fold. Images can also be easily rotated and cropped to fit the page, text and images can be layered over each other and arranged to fit the page. Multiple copies can be printed and placed in the restaurant or even posted to residents in the area. Following considerations of the possible solutions I find that a desktop publishing program would be the most appropriate solution. This is because it contains all the features that are very useful for the making of a menu.

  9. Logo Write-up

    I feel that either a football or a football shirt should appear in the logo. I have researched some logos of other sports companies to see how they present their company. Here is the logo for the huge sports company JJB: As you can see the logo says the name of the company in big bold letters. There is no need for a picture or any fancy logos. The logo is simple and effective. The name of the company does all the work. It is colourful and grabs your attention. Here is the logo for the biggest international sports company in the world, Nike.

  10. Produce a report describing, comparing and evaluating 2 types of documents from three different companies all evolved in the same market.

    not aimed at children. The document is very bland, and only uses black and white. The justification on this document is very central and organised. Lloyds TSB: The 2nd document I collected was a Lloyds TSB payslip, roughly the same size as the Barclays payslip except it is slightly wider. The layout is very spacious and clear. It contains similar contents to the Barclays payslip, including tables, text, logo, numbers and a receipt. The documents can easily be read and would not be so confusing to people who do not have such a wide knowledge on backing.

    How was it created I firstly put in my logo, and then added in the slogan later. I looked at this in a range of ways, including having the logo on the right, and also having the slogan below the logo, but my final decision was how it is seen above. I then put in my footer, which I filled green to make it look more catchy, I then decided what information to put in the footer. Seen as I didn't have a proper company and was unsure of what some information on the proper invoices was, I decided to simply put in the companies address, phone number and e-mail.

  21. I have been contacted by Ritchie Hulks who is a member of the Dover Athletic Supporters Trust board recently. He has asked me if it would be possible to design a monthly newsletter for the trust.

    One of the things that the trust promised was that all members would be informed as to what is happening at the club.

They would supply me with all the information and what they want from me is a professional looking design, which all the members will read.

I think you should develop this, I feel that this initial design developed more would look very good."

    The picture on the front page was inserted and then resized to fit the page. This was done easily by selecting the picture and placing the cursor on a corner of its frame until an arrow appeared.

I also made a few ruff decisions as to whereabouts I wanted text, pictures, and graphs, although I knew that these would be changed as my ideas developed.

  24. My objective is to promote a package for a newly formed company. I will be producing a handbags company, which will be called 'Noble & Wild'.

    I Personally do not like the colour used for the font, as it Is too bright. This logo has a very dark background. The font used in this logo is curved and really thin. It is a really basic colour, which contrasts well with the background. It is neatly presented. I like the idea of the border around the logo, which keeps the name of the company in place. This logo is completely different from the other logos that I have chosen. There is different size fonts used which immediately attracts your view. The colours used are basic and plain, but it still makes the logo stand out due to the font.
