Create 4 separate Photoshop files that will serve as page designs for a Multimedia Kiosk. You will need these 4 pages: Main, Rules, Equipment and History pages. The Home or Landing Page should have a place for video. You will be responsible for designing the navigation system including buttons and a button down state. Indicate this on your different page designs with the correct button in a down state. Creativity is the goal. How do you make Curling fun and informative?  Copy and Paste text is permitted.

Day 2: Multimedia Design

Our instructor Darren ran extremely late for tonight's class, so Carole got us started on our next assignment while we waited for him. I didn't have my book yet so I basically had a bit of free time, until someone offered their book. Darren then showed up and gave a brief lecture about the different steps of setting up a multimedia project.

Update: I got my book on Wednesday (Thank you, Sarah) and playing catchup today (Thursday).
