Is it OK to use someone else’s template to create my website?
Answer: Yes, if you acknowledge other people’s work. Show you understand how the template works by modifying it and documenting the changes.
Can I host photos and files outside the archive?
Answer: No. Photos should be resized, compressed and stored in the archive. Large files can be hosted externally, but they should not be essential to evaluate your work. See General Essentials. Remember that The Global Evaluation team should be able to pull and then assess your work offline.
What size should my website be?
Answer: In the order of tens of megabytes by the end of the Fab Academy cycle.
How much is "briefly" in the description of final project?
Answer: At least one sketch (something visual) and one paragraph (a few sentences) of text.
