Multimedia Website

Multimedia Website

October 2004 to December 2004
  • A website developed around the theme of telling other people what Multimedia is and how we live in a multimedia world

  • This was my first big web based assignment in the first year of University

  • Overall I feel this was a good attempt for my first large scale website, and go me started off working with Dreamweaver, which I still use for web development to this day

  • However, I do look at this site now and think it needs a bit more colour. It just looks too dull to really be able to explain what multimedia is!
