KOA Gallery + design tips


Koa Gallery

Photo of inside to outside maybe nice.

image resolution DPI (Dot’s per inch), PPI (Pixels per inch), and PPX (monitor resolution).

For prints 300dpi–350px is standard.

19″ monitor set to 1024×768 will show 70ppi (pixels per inch)

19″ monitor set to 1280×1024 will have a resolution of 87ppx.

You can fit more on the screen (1280×1024) and get more detail, but everything looks smaller.

Story of screen resolution.

Scrolling is Better than Clicking – clicking is a decision.



299: Chris suggestion

Chris modified my typographical hierarchy for my portfolio.

I moved wireframe from ID to XD and modify it.

Fixed on the XD instead of ID, I will copy it to ID to fix the wireframe in ID also.

Now I will design sub pages using XD.

Also, I will finalize the typographical hierarchy in Type Test.

Also, I was considering changing the background colors for each of the subpages as in 18F.gov. Chris said that Apple has a tool to change the background color for each of the CD – most appropriate color by checking the graphics of CD. I may change the background designs of each sub pages; such as one is art nouveau-ish, ukiyoe-fu, kusama yayoi-fu etc.



299: Visual Precedence for My Website

Martha Stewart Home Page Top –
I selected this website as their intention tries to be for general users with devices large to small and new to old.

+ All images are clickable to the page.
-Notice the search sign needs to be clicked to actually get the search text entry space. Then the user clicks the box to be able to enter any character in the text box.

Martha Stewart Home Page Bottom –


Martha Stewart Food/Dessert & Treats Sub Page Top –

1. There is another navigation in the middle of the page.
2. It can slide the navigation to populate many nav tabs.


Martha Stewart Video Receipe Sub Page Top –

1. There are a logo & remark on the vid.
2. SNS links right below the vid.
3. There are many clickable video links.
4. There is no link to videos. How to get to any video, I searched “video.”



Noticed: Confusing but feasible solution of content on home and sub-pages.

  1. Each section has the color of its own.
  2. Each section has its own page.


Boot Strap Template below is somewhat closer to what I imagine for my home page.
Replace jumbo tron with hero image.

from UX Planet:

https://www.beckett.de/ has lots of moving parts and difficult understand the section separations.

299: a John Doe Site – How minimally it is set.

Suggestion from Chris:

Start coding the website.

Start CSS with Table of Contents and No reset *{margin 0; padding 0;} etc.

Browser view and view its source HTML
