HTML/CSS website - Journalism Design Toolkit project

Spring 2021

She is a reporter for The New School Free Press, has been a freelance writer for L.A. based company ADOLESCENT, and has published other works in indepedent publications and zines such as LUNA Collective, Art Hoe Collective, and Here-After. 

For my Journalism Design Toolkit class (an introductory course on HTML/CSS coding languages, and Adobe Creative softwares), we built a website from scratch only using HTML and CSS languages.

I used GitHub to host my website (you may visit my respository to take a look at the back-end of my website) and I used Sublime to create my coding files.

Here is what the index.html file looks like.

As a result of the index.html file, I have a functioning website with a menu, logo, text copy, unordered list, links, and images

This is my style.css file (the file that adds color and custom fonts).

An element we had to add in our website is a navigation menu. For my website, since I wanted to be ambitious, I added a hamburger menu whose function relies on CSS (I found the code on CodePen). You can see the example below:
