You are to redesign an existing web site that you find to be “lacking”. The site needs to be either professional/business related, or for a non-profit organization. If it is something else, please get the instructor’s approval first. The site should make sense with the fewer pages if, you cannot do the whole site given it’s size. i.e. Redoing Best Buy’s web site is not an option, because it cannot make sense with only 12 pages given its scope. If the site is a single page that is real long, and can be easily split into the required number of pages, then that will be considered as well.
If you wish to pick a site that you are not sure if it would be appropriate, check with the instructor first.
