WEEK 9

Take some time to look at these files. You can download them via this link (below). They are files done for a project similar to to making an Avatar layout. These files will help you understand 2 things. Firstly: how to use the layers in Illustrator; and secondly, you’ll see a style of ‘artwork’.

You should now have some skills in illustrator to start getting the ideas developed. The recommended Adobe tool for doing this is Illustrator. But of course Photoshop is also useful. But because you’ll be using Flash next semester, it’s better to start using Illustrator.

Banner Ads were used in the 1980s when the internet first appeared. Why? To encourage ‘consumers’ like you and me to click your mouse. On the click of a mouse you then were taken to another website. Usually a website that would try and convince you to buy something.

How do Banner Ads appear today? And what are their benefits for advertisers? Emotional benefits or Commercial benefits?

Also, here is a link to a cool resource showcasing the best 50 online Banner Ads

404 is a basic system code error. The number appears on a webpage. It only appears when a server can no longer find a page you’re asking it to search for. The main reason why a 404 page error pops up is when the link to the original page is dead. That means the page no longer exists.
