This report details the process of creating a website control manual for The Ark, an acoustic music club in Ann Arbor. My senior thesis project was to meet with the client, establish an understanding of their needs, and generate a useful manual for maintaining the club’s website.

This report is broken up into three sections that describe the process of meeting with the client and creating the deliverable: analyze, design, and build. These sections describe what initial steps were taken to begin this project, how and why I decided layout and design options for this manual, and how and why I built the document.

A section titled Afterthoughts concludes the report with my interpretation of the outcome, as well as some obstacles I encountered during the process.
