Specialist Practices & Creative Agendas This Art based module allowed me to explore briefs (addressed to me and of my own). Throughout this I used an array of different mediums (i.e. print, film, photography, sculpture, painting and drawing) to express my creative thoughts to emphasise a point. Website Design During this I designed and developed my own websites. Firstly, I designed the site layout in Adobe Photoshop. Then, I constructed this in Adobe Dreamweaver, using: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Action Script 3.0. Computer Animation 2D Through this I produced 2D animations. I constructed 2D characters and backgrounds in Adobe Flash, along with the individual scenes. Using Adobe After Effects I edited the animation and added sound.
