Overall, I didn't find this task too hard. When I first got handed this task I thought I was out of my depth. I had NO idea, whatsoever, how I was going to do this.
But as I started typing my written text, words just starting coming out of me page by page. I didn't want to stop writing! In the end I had to cut the length down but it still went over the 500 word mark (just a bit!). To be honest, I think it was a fluke that I compleed the writtent text so quickly. I actually really enjoyed the first step.
I also found the annottations really fun. At first, I couldn't get into ThingLink and I couldn't upload an image but when I got the hang of it, it was simple.
When it came to designing the web page, I wish I asked for more help. I kept putting it off because I didn't know how to get in and I thought it was going to be really difficult to design it. When I FINALLY got in, it was a lot easier than I thought.
Doing this task, it kind of gave me a tiny little taster of the thoughts that go in when advertising. Especially when I did the visual text and the annotations for it. I spent a long time racking my brain for a little statement or phrase to put on my image. When I first thought of it I didn't really like it but as I started "highlighting persuasive techinques" I realised that it wasn't half bad. I also realised there was a lot of other tools that I had used (vectors, gaze) unintentionally.
It was kind of like a jigsaw puzzle. I didn't really know what the pieces were going to be or where I was going to put them, but in the end, I got the full image.
