Intro to Web Design

About this event

Web design is the visual styling and layout of a website. It requires a good understanding of color, type, alignment, and harmony. With pleasing aesthetics, organized navigation, and sensible UX, visitors are more likely to stay on the site and view multiple pages.

We'll have a hands-on evening practicing the key principles of design and implementing them. Design is more than colors and fonts: it begins with establishing client goals, formulating a strategy to achieve those goals, and creating a strong design concept to support the strategy. Brainstorming and sketching out ideas is part of this fun process, so bring paper and pen or tablet to get started!

Once you've got the design figured out, you use HTML and CSS to build the site. As time allows, we'll explore how to: add contrast, use continuity, align items, group elements together, improve hierarchy, and ensure good readability.

Gather your questions and bring them to our class!
