The visible design of a WebSie is highly personal. What is attractive to you may not be attractive to me. Our class, "WebPage Design and Development" concerns all the Design you can't see ... the HTML and CSS. So, in the big scheme, it doesn't matter if I think your pages look good, visually. Except for this one Rubric Item, my opinion matters. So, you tell me your design ideas when you write your WebSite Elements, and I will take that into consideration when forming my own opinion. In other words, you tell me why your WebSite looks good, and you will earn most of these 5 points.
