1. Design Network
2. Implement
3. Pat yourself on the back

I'd mark this as spam but you don't seem to be selling or promoting URL's which is usually the sole point of spammers.
If you're actually after some advice on network design, we need a boatload more information.

This sounds suspiciously like homework.

Assuming this isn't a homework assignment or prelude to sock puppet spam, you're going to need to be a little more specific than that.

What will the network be used for? What are the performance, reliability, and security requirements? How many users will there be?

You can't just "design a network" without knowing how it will be used.

You start with zip ties and no sense of maintainability.

Just kidding. You stonewall because it's not coming out your department's budget, but no one else is going to take work away from your department.

I can do illustrations in a modern-abstract style. Try yEd Graph Editor for making flowcharts.

Yes it does. Schools really need to step it up, or OP needs to pay attention, if it is.
