Webpage Design Basics for Non-Designers

July 5th, 2011 — by Mike Wilcox

As web developers, we all make web pages. Sometimes however, we don’t have the benefit of a full team, complete with graphical designers, markup gurus, CSS specialists, usability experts, SEO advocates, a marketing and branding team, etc, etc.

Design is not a talent – it’s a learned skill. This presentation will show you how to build a webpage from scratch, even if you’re not “an artist”. We will walk through everything from logo-design basics, to choosing colors and font faces, so you can construct a webpage from scratch… that doesn’t suck!

The accompanying video is here.

After this session, we moved on to critique some web pages. You can see that video here.
