October Meeting: Fireworks -Rapid Website Prototyping &
Adobe CS5 Suite Raffle

Date and Time:  October 18, 2010 from 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Kline Branch - Dauphin County Library
530 South 29th Street, Harrisburg, PA 17104

The votes are in and October’s meeting topic will be... Fireworks - Rapid Website Prototyping. Learn how to use Fireworks to take a sketch and turn it into a rough wireframe website.

Wireframes are very helpful in the beginning stages of website design to help demonstrate both general layout and site flow not only for the site designer, but especially for the client. Not only does it help with client approvals, but it can alert the designer to site flow issues that may need address before coding.

In this meeting presentation CPAUG manager, Megan Fister, will show you how to take a rough sketch and use fireworks to create a rapid wireframe website to show your client the basic layout of a website.

You’ll learn Megan’s tips on how to do the following:
- Setup your initial document including master pages
- Creating and setting up re-usable assets into the common library
- Several ways to deploy the wireframe to your client for easy and painless reviews
- Time permitting, how to dress up the wireframe graphically to make it look more like a real website for a “2nd round” of reviews before coding.
-Time permitting, Dave Lambert (CPAUG co-manager) will demo additional Fireworks tips & tricks. 

This presentation assumes a basic knowledge of the Fireworks interface and vector graphics.
