Web Design

Postby Gravesent » Sat Dec 16, 2006 11:09 pm

As some of you may know about two months ago I got hired as a web designer, since than I've learned a lot about web pages and how to make them, though I'm still a long way from being a true expert.

Hoping that some of you might be interested in web designing I'm opening this sticky topic where I'll be sharing what I've learned and where we can discuss anything related to making web pages.

To begin with I'm adding a link to a very useful site my boss had me look at, it's very up to date on how web pages should look and feel today and in the future and pretty much teaches you how to work and think from scratch:

Order, symmetry, discipline and balance.

If you want some literature on Web Usability:

Don't make me think by Steve Krug
http://www.amazon.com/Dont-Make-Me-Thin ... 321344758/

Web Design Pattern by Ian Graham
http://www.amazon.com/Pattern-Language- ... 201788888/

I'm rather critical about the field of Web Usability as it sometimes seems like some sorta pseudo-scientific thing to me, but these books are rather helpful. Although most things that you can read there are things that are rather clear if you've ever worked in Web Design... but sometimes you still got "AH! Why haven't I thought of that?" moments.

I tend to like the new stile as a web designer, it's simple, easy to make and effective, as a user I'm more fond of a bit more complex designs.

This topic seems to have come to a standstill.

If you still happen to be interested in finding other web programmers, I just got started learning HTML, CSS, PHP, and SQL a few weeks ago.

Don't assume I'm too much of a novice, though. I may be a long way from done, but I'm far enough from nothing to count.

What languages do you know?

Well if you're gonna write lessons on web design you really need to work on the colours on your forum.

In other news I came to the consclusion that the web design domain is far to large to be contained in one thread, I'll probably start a blog or something to share what I've learned in the past 2 years.

But now that I am working on creating a better forum, the theme is updated. I havn't heard a single complaint about it since then. And I should clarify somethig, I am and always will be a programmer first and a designer second.

Feel free to leave me some opinions on the new theme.

Hope you like it more.
