  • My head is pounding!

    Hello all,

    Hmmm where to start... well I have been taking another crash course in the design world now that I have been trying to learn the basics of html, css, JS, php and so on.

    I started by building a site following along with this guy:

    I used his practice files to create two sites in DW and everything went pretty well. I feel I got a good grasp on writing html, css and file organization. So whats the problem? The sites look good but my friends that I'm designing for need a content managing system so I went through 5 hours of tutorials on using at the same time I went back to for some more tutorials on building wordpress themes using PS/notepad/wamp and so on... Then I started seeing all these really nice looking WP themes and thought oh sht!, this looks like a trap but so hard to resist.

    So now Im here and feel super confused with all this info and want to know what route I should pursue.

    Also want to add that I worked in PS and designed about 100+ works for the last 6 years without realizing that all my logos, flyers, ect. were a bit off due to bitmap ... btw, I'm also in another crash course learning Illy.

    I don't want to travel down another road like that in webdesign.

    If you read all this then thank you.

    advice greatly appreciated

    I always expect some form of crit after sending a proof to a client. When there is no critique, I am concerned because I fear the client hasn't looked at the proof properly.

    Studies are a big investment in time and money. I wouldn't hire a designer that refused to invest in themselves to learn the basics.
