During this project, I practiced designing, developing, and implementing a website by following workflow models commonly used in the professional field. It was a team project, and we had to work together to fulfill requirements for an imaginary client. I worked on developing ang the graphics and logo, in addition to fulfilling my role as the team developer by coding the site as efficiently as I could using PHP includes and meeting web standards.
