E-portfolio: Design

My ideas for designs

Design Introduction

I have created 4 designs for my e-portfolio which I will evaluate and then choose one to design to make. I will look at the positives and the negatives about each design, and write a little paragraph to talk about whats good or bad.

Design #1

Positives: Creative, Funny, Interesting to look at

Negatives: Complicated, Messy, Hard to make, Not very school appropriate, does not have all subjects/no homepage

Design #2

Positives: Big font, Simple, Easy to make

Negatives: Not creative, Boring, Not attractive looking, maybe hard to see on a phone, Plain, Not that challenging

Design #3

Positives: Simple, Easy to make, Formal, Has all subjects, looks interesting, creative, Easy to make without having to pay

Negatives: Bad drawing of me

Design #4

Positives: Lots of pictures, creative,

Negatives: Messy, Dull, Boring, Not formal enough


I think number 3 is the best because it(s):

  • Neat
  • creative
  • Easy to understand
  • Easy to make
  • simple
  • formal
  • has all subjects
  • looks interesting

Number 3 is the design I will create
