Using the svBuilder

I clicked on New Gallery.

I dragged the three cloud files on to the ‘Add Images’ space and they appeared on the right. I changed the caption of the files to a different name which would be seen by the viewer.

Size of webpage, image source and image sizes are the other options that can be changed here.

I clicked the ‘Customise’ button. The options on the left appeared. I changed the text colour to purple. I clicked ‘Publish’.

Gallery height, gallery width, background colour, text colour, frame colour, frame width as well as the title of the gallery can be edited. The layout of the page can also be edited.

I clicked save.

Here you can see the changes I made.

Vector design for the Barometer and connotations

I wanted to have a sun and a cloud with rain to represent the barometer. I looked at pictures on the internet such as this sun and the cloud below it.

I used the tool pen to make my own sun and cloud. I used the rotate tool to make the details around the sun.

Connotations

Is your design clear and easy to understand?

I think it is easy to see a sun and a cloud in the design. I didn’t try to design something to represent air pressure as I think the sun and cloud are easier and quicker to understand.

How might others view it? How could it be mis-read?

They may view it as a weather forecast which technically it isn’t.

Does it look appropriate or does it refer to other meanings?

I think it is appropriate because ultimately a barometer measures air pressure which indicates what the weather will be.
