It’s been a dream of mine to create this ultimate course for beginners on web design. From start to finish in here, we are I’m with the hopes that this course can literally change your life. So what is this? What are we going to learn here? So web design is actually a combination of two different skill set or industries. One of them is graphic design.
How to use design shapes texts and images to convey a message and the other one is the web. How people interact on the web, how they, what what user experience is and how do you develop your graphic ideas into making them work in the browser? So all these things are things that we’re going to cover on this course. You can expect to learn the fundamentals of graphic design, whether it is things like typography, the use of color, the use of layouts and the use of images and other graphical elements.
We’re also going to talk about all the web skills from user experience, UI design, wire, framing, creating interactions and understanding the whole development concept of HTML and CSS and how things actually work on the web. We’re going to talk about all the software that you need and how I personally use them. So I’m going to shortcut your way into mastery of the software and we’re going to talk about these software that I use, but also free alternatives and what you should get started with and finally we’re going to talk about the whole process of building websites.
