Website Design Tips: The Standard Website Layout

www.mlwebco.com – Website Design Tips The Standard Website Layout – In this video, I talk about the standard layout that can be used for every website.

Web Design All-in-One For Dummies


Web designers must wear many hats. Among books on Web design, Web Design All-in-One For Dummies is the one that helps you successfully wear all those hats without losing your head.

Full-color illustrations and five self-contained minibooks show you how to be a graphic designer, creative organizer, visual communicator, markup language technologist, and cutting-edge trendsetter, all in one. This book helps you lay the groundwork, follow design rules, test your site, register a domain name, and much more.

  • Getting Started covers planning, defining your target audience, choosing the right software, and more
  • Designing For the Web acquaints you with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, plus how to choose a layout and optimize graphics
  • Building Web Sites gets down to nuts and bolts: putting text, images, hyperlinks, and multimedia files together, organizing content, and building navigation systems
  • Web Standards & Testing teaches you how to test and validate so everyone can enjoy your site
  • Publishing & Site Maintenance helps you get your site online and keep it current

Web Design All-in-One For Dummies also helps you learn how to choose a Web editor and graphics program, how to make your site accessible to the widest possible audience, and when it’s time to call in a pro like author Sue Jenkins. It’s just what you need to start and manage a great site.

  • Very, very useful. I’ve been learning tags and stylesheets and goodness knows what else but have no idea how to put it together as a web page. This 8-minute clip now has my head buzzing with ideas. Thank you for uploading it!

  • I have to agree with you, I have watched many tutorials on the net and these are the best yet I have found on web design. I have used Fireworks for years and thought I knew it pretty well, but I learn something every time I watch another video!

    Clear, easy to follow, not too long and great examples of ‘real world’.

    Thanks Michael for these brilliant videos!
