To all web designers?

thomashonecker question : To all web designers I received very good at evolving Dreamweaver 8 and I’m learning Photoshop, and even put my first website from scratch … I’m hooked on web design, how I can turn this into a second job working from home … It seems overwhelming that there is much to learn where to start is the question? Does anyone know of good websites that teach web design for beginners, … tutorials and such .. a friend told me that if I want to be good I have to learn about colors and what colors to put on different types of websites .. really do not get what he was talking about .. was in a rush to go into details, can anyone explain and I go to places I could learn about this too. GraciasMejor response: Answer

  • I’m in the same boat with you and try to make web design a second job. The approach I am taking is simply find a project that can be taken as a learning project and take a page at a time and functionality at a time. My page is a place of learning infertility doctors and clinics (http://www.FindInfertilityDocs.com), which began adding content to it, the next time the search engine optimization research, ads added together, the next time Amazon products added to it, next I added a way for people to register to list your information, etcCada appearance of the page it took me some time to figure out, but I was breaking it into pieces able to search and each individual piece and learn about it, while at the same time, the application to a live page.

  • There are hundreds of site, but generally the best way to learn is to try to “recreate” an existing site from scratch. Do yourself a favor and get a cheap web hosting account – something like ucvhost.com is really cheap. Always remember to try a variety of browsers – at least in IE 7.6 and Firefox (Safari too, if you have a Mac). Topics of color to your friend spoke of the discussion is likely that the “web” safe colors. In general, it does not matter much in today’s world of color 16-24 bits as it did years ago when the Mac and the PC had 256 color palettes. That said, a good understanding of the psychology of color and use of color is always useful in any capacity design – just keep in mind the technical limitations of the past really are not that relevantes.En my humble opinion, the best thing is to learn XHTML / CSS – and always try to find ways to separate content from presentation. In other words, using style sheets (CSS) to format external presentation of a well-formed XHTML document will move towards dynamic designs based on much easier – and also make changes to the site wide aspect so much easier .
