These days with so many businesses fighting for attention on the internet, good design is more important than ever for your startup (Think Pinterest and Instagram). Before you start coding and for the advanced few thinking about your business model, you need to get your website design looking top notch. Whether you are a creative genius or a straight up buss dev hacker this class will provide you with an overview of the basics of website design so you can successfully complete the task of creating a beautiful looking website that pops out of the browser.

The class will cover a terminology overview, a run down of the processes involved in creating a website design: from wire frames to CSS and top tips and tools you should use and look out for. The class is designed for those with no specific design qualifications, but want to better understand the process of website design so they can go on to learn the process in detail or work better with their contracted or in-house designer.
