The Missing Link of Web Design – Part 1

August 12, 2010

In working with designers around the word, we’ve seen a common gap in the workflow when bringing design concepts to the web browser. Many designers are not actually working in HTML and CSS in order to bring their designs to the browser. Most workflows rely on web programmers to make the design translation, which can result in design nuances being overlooked, resulting in a loss of the designer’s original vision. This online seminar seeks to show designers a step-by-step process for taking web designs in applications like Photoshop and Illustrator, and bringing them into HTML and CSS using Dreamweaver. We’ll start by ‘slicing’ our design into the pieces we’ll need to create our design in HTML. Then we’ll switch to Dreamweaver, create new blank documents, and show you how to take full control of your design as we build the necessary HTML and CSS your vision requires.
