I firstly came up with a design by creating mock-ups and wire frames using graphic packages like Adobe PhotoShop, Illustrator and Fireworks. I looked at similar type websites online to establish what I felt worked and would like to incorporate into my design.
I started creating a colour scheme and a layout. I then found suitable images that were high quality. I edited and formatted the images to fit in with my design, by resizing and editing the images. I used these images then to create banners and logos I then used on the website. I used Illustrator and In Design to created my logo and banner.
