Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Block out content regions, part of Designing a Portfolio Website with Muse.
- [Instructor] My next step in creating the online portfolio…is to block out the different regions of content…on the home page.…The home page is just one long scroll of information,…and I just want to mark out…the different regions of content.…Referring to the wire frame, and let me just refresh…your memory that this first breakpoint of 1,200 pixels…we're designing with a screen resolution…of 1440x900 in mind.…
And the first 89 pixels of that is…given over to, 89 or maybe more,…but thereabouts, it's going to vary,…is given over to the browser Chrome,…and then we have 100 pixels of header,…so 189 subtracted from 900 leaves us with a size…of 711 pixels for each of these content areas,…not shown here cause this thing's changed…since I made the wire frame.…
There's the hello section, there's the thumbnail section,…there's the about, and there's the contact,…so four sections.…The contact is actually going to be slightly smaller…than that, it's going to be 40 pixels less…because beneath it we have the footer,…which is at 40 pixels.…
