Below is  what I’d like the web page to look like when you’re finished.  You will upload a final_web folder with the HTML, CSS and images folder. Make sure you follow the correct file organization as discussed in the class notes. Here’s a link to a zip file with the two images you’ll need to complete this exercise.

Link the text to the following websites:
Sphinx: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sphinx
Papyrus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papyrus

(See full details about the Final Project below, the info is also located on the “Final” page located in the main navigation.) Please post the sitemap as a PDF and your design comp as a Photoshop file to the Dropbox on smconline.org. Please note: be sure to create a Photoshop file that’s 72 dpi and which contains images at this same dpi. If you don’t, the weight of the Photoshop file may get too big and will be difficult to upload to the Dropbox!)

When you upload your zip file to the Dropbox, please put all parts of the assignment in one folder and be sure to include your name in your file names. For example: yourlastname_assignment4.zip
