My task will be to design
a website for you that reflects your theme. I'll do the graphical
design for the banner and menu, and ensure that the text and images
are properly formatted on each page. But while I can do my best
to make the site look good, it is over to you to supply the actual
content you want on each page.
So there are some things
I am going to need from you to be able to do this:
Top Banner Graphic
The top banner displays
the title of your site on every page, and can include some graphics.
You need to think of this title, and will need to supply me with
any graphics you would like incorporated. On the other hand, you
can leave this all up to me
if you prefer.
might have some idea as to what you want your buttons to look like,
or you can leave that up to me. But what I do need from you is a
list of what each page is going to be called, so I know the titles
to put on each button. These titles should only be a word or two
long, otherwise they won't fit on the buttons.
have to tell me the headings for each page, which are situated just
beneath the top banner graphic. Obviously, these will probably reflect
the appropriate navigation button title, but because there is more
space than on the buttons, you can expand the one or two words into
whole sentences. You'll see I've done that with this site.
Text and Images
This is the most important
area for you to look at.
First, you'll need to
sort your text and graphics into the number of pages you want.
I don't know your subject
matter, so you will have to write your own text (though I can fine-tune
it for you if you wish). You can send me this text as a Word document,
as an email, or by letter. I'll format the text and drop it into
the appropriate pages.
are also responsible for supplying your own images. If you are displaying
miniature soldiers, you can take digital photos of them and save
them as JPG files, or you can send me scans (again, as JPG files).
Don't worry too much about the size of the photos, as I can fix
that. If you don't have a scanner, you can post me the original
paper photos which I can return to you.
might also choose to include some background or reference material
about your units. This always adds interest to a site, and can be
useful to other miniature soldier collectors and wargamers. Once
again, please send me the images as JPG files. If they are already
available elsewhere on the internet, then you can point me to the
right address to copy them from.
Bear in mind, however,
that you are responsible for ensuring there is no copyright on the
images you want me to incorporate into your website. Obviously this
does not apply to photos taken by you, but if you want to use images
from other sources, it is over to you to get permission from the
