Moving from print to web design can be a daunting task. The workflows are unique and print designers often struggle when trying to figure out the best way to design websites. In this seminar we’ll teach how to approach a project. What steps do you take from concept, to design, to complete working website? What software do you use and when?
Some of the topics we’ll cover are:
- The web design workflow and how it’s different from print
- What software to use for mockups
- How to move from mockup, to graphics creation to working website
- Slicing graphics in Photoshop, Fireworks or Illustrator
- How to decide a webpage’s dimensions
- How to design user-friendly navigation
- How to design search engine friendly websites (SEO)
- Online typography: font choices, special characters, etc.
- Where do Dreamweaver, HTML and CSS fit in?
