Website Progress & Content
I’ve been working on building the web space for my project while trying to do as little coding as possible. I am using Webflow as my platform of choice. I have taken some photographs, played around with the layout and interactions as well as continued to write the content for each page. I plan on scanning all my swatches early this week and continuing to fill the site. In terms of the final show, I’ll most likely need an iPad or monitor for use although a laptop/iPad size one would be preferred as that is the scale I focused my web design in. I have also designed a survey to integrate into the site to gather data and information from visitors about their own perceptions. The survey asks visitors to choose words that they associate with “knitting” it also asks them if they know how to knit as well as their location.
Here are some screenshots of my progress (they are all still being worked on).
In the survey to understand perceptions, I have participants choosing between two words. The one they choose is what best represents “knitting” to them. The only question that is not a pair is feminine vs. masculine vs. androgynous. These questions are followed by a few multiple choice questions about if they know how to knit and how they learned if they do (this will help when designing learning tools/workshops). Finally the last few questions are about age, gender, and location. The survey doesn’t take any identifying information and only takes a few minutes to complete. It will be embedded into the site and will open in a pop-up on the page.
Here is the list of pairs
