is everyone's go-to source of information in today's world.
Businesses, public figures, publications and everything in
between all have a presence on the web; and the more
professional their website looks, the more successful they
tend to be. Web designers are more in demand than ever
before, and the profession is constantly changing along with
the web itself. This course aims to teach the most up to
date fundamentals of web design from scratch.
This course has been developed for both complete beginners and those
who already have a limited knowledge of web design. Apsiring web
designers, web developers who want to understand the design side of
the business, and graphic designers - as well as those from
completely unrelated disciplines - will all be more than capable of
handling the content of this course.
With over 34 lectures and 7.5 hours of content, it will take you
through the fundamentals of web design from scratch. That means
getting to grips with HTML, CSS and Foundation Grid Framework;
working with images, webfonts and sprite sheets among other
elements; understanding grids and responsive design; and achieving
flawless layouts, eradicating bugs, and more.
Throughout the course you will work towards designing and developing
a colourful, modern and responsive portfolio website. By the end of
the course you will have this website completed, and can use it when
starting out on your career in web design.
About HTML and CSS
HTML, or Hyper Text Markup Language, is the code used to define
colours, graphics, hyperlinks, paragraphs, and other simple elements
of a website. It was developed by the founder of the web, Tim
Berners Lee, back in 1990. CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, define
the more advanced aspects of websites like fonts, background images,
positioning and much more. It is a style language that defines HTML
layout, so the two are intrinsically linked. Both form the basic
frameworks for all websites on the internet.
