My first web-design...

Post by LaSINda on Sun 17 May 2009, 10:25 am

I have this project coming up. I'll be starting on it as soon as I have a few hours straight, to put towards it. This will be my first web design and i'll be getting paid for it. I have no doubt that I can pull it off, and hopefully well. I'll be doing everything in Photoshop, the graphics and the slicing. I noticed that AxiuM put up a slicing tut recently that will def help! i'll +rep accordingly, lol.

i was just wondering if there are any other advices (for beginners) to go along side that tut?

btw, i do not have to code, my part is design only.

My advice is to have a nice background.... some really succesful sites have good color combos, you should use Adobe Kuler for some of those! Very Happy

Good luck! tell us how you do! Smile

Yes, i agree Keitho, W3 is neccessary for coding, but Lasinda stated that it is not a coding project just a GD project, are there any sites that specialize in GD websites?

Maybe you can check or ask for advice on clantemplates.com I;m saying this because probably many people there are professinal webdesigners and they would probably help you!

I'd say keep it simple and dont go color crazy. Have one or two colors as your main core colors and gradients are good if you can pull it off. Too much will make the site look unprofessional. Anyways, keep us updated as to what you have so far Smile

I agree to Axium because if you go crazy with the design and added a lot of things then the coder will have serious problems with it, ^^.
