In this assignment, you will practice generating visual specs for a high fidelity mock up. Visual specs are a common deliverable that designers create for developers to ensure that their design is translated well into code.
Before you can spec a design, you need to design it. Design one page of new recipe website that displays a recipe for your favorite Thanksgiving dish. (Example)
When you spec a design, you need to be as thorough as you possibly can. The more information you provide a developer, the more likely it is that your design will get built accurately.
