Artefact Creative Process ~ One More Thing!

Initial sketches! I played around with a few different layouts even though I did have an idea in my head already, just to see if I could create something more appealing. NOPE. The second image shows the refinement of my site planning. Where i wanted the header and footer, links, content, any features/widgets, and so…
