BASIC HTML & CSS for NON-WEB DESIGNERS
Are you a print designer, photographer, fine-artist, or general creative person? Do you have a shitty website that you slapped together yourself in Dreamweaver in that ONE web design class that you took in college? Do you not have a site at all because you’ve been waiting two years for your cousin to put it together for you? Well, we’re here to help. We know that you have little to no desire to do web design professionally, but that doesn’t mean that you want an ugly cookie-cutter site or to settle for one that hasn't been updated since Hackers was in theaters. Through short tutorial videos, you’ll learn how to take a basic wordpress blog and manipulate the css, html (and even some php!) to match your aesthetic. You’ll feel empowered rather than crippled by the internet and worst case scenario you’ll at least end up having a better idea of how professional web designers turn your design dreams into a reality on screen.
Do the fonts look kind of weird? Switch to Safari or Chrome as your browser. You’ll thank me later.
In the conclusion of this two-part series, we’ll show you how to apply and write your own CSS.
Time to release that long-held breath, here comes part 2 of Starting From Scratch
where you'll learn how to add CSS to that hum-drum HTML. Of course, we'll be using our example site
as we continue to take it from basic HTML, to a beautiful, well-marked-up website. By the end of this video, you should be able to go forth and start CSS-ing your own website project. What are you waiting for? Press “Play” already!
