The basics of web design

A couple of weeks ago I posted some tutorials made by Adam Dachis of Lifehacker showing you how to go about starting a video editing project.  This time he's been busy (with Adam Pash) doing much the same thing with an emphasis on building your first web site (this is what we do on our MED102 module).  Below you'll find links to his videos and the text-based pages walking you through the various processes.

#1 - Understanding and writing HTML



Here's a link to a handy HTML cheat sheet.

#2 - Styling and CSS



#3 - A site from start to finish




#4 - Choosing a host and launching your site



#5 - Additional resources



If you fancy a .pdf download of all the text then click here to get that.

Right. Jumping right to CSS, for example, will render the designer a stranger to HTML entirely-not-privy knowledge.

Fonts are the way your text looks on a Web page. And most Web pages have large amounts of text. When you're thinking of design, you need to think about how the text looks on a micro-level (the font glyphs, what font family, etc.) as well as the macro-level (positioning blocks of text and adjusting the size and shape of the text

A good understanding in Styling and CSS can definitely go a long way. CSS allows you to retain control over the various elements in different web pages of your website. A single CSS sheet has the ability to control the fonts, positioning, colour and style information of an entire website.
