• Process: Coding was a very daunting task when I first saw it, but the more I learned, the more I took to it like a fish to water. After creating the logo in Illustrator, I began coding in Notepad ++. by far the hardest part was trying to create the style sheet in CSS. In HTML, I could follow it easily, because it had a beginning, middle, and end. In CSS however, it’s more a list of elements, and it was a chore to figure out which line of code should go into which element. I got it in the end, and the result is wonderfully retro.
