The assignment was to make a ‘web based promotion for a band’. Because most of us we're just learning how to make web sites, we did just that.
We started working out a new logo for them (since they didn't really have one). Once we got that straight, we started doing some prototypes in InDesign, so we could decide which direction we'd go with.
Because I already was fairly experienced in front-end development, I focused on passing my knowledge to my peers. I introduced them to grids, CSS-transitions and Ajax.
