Intro to Web Design

Intro to Web Design

These days, moving from project to project, studio to studio has become the new normal. And with that being able to demonstrate your skills and qualifications at a moment's notice has become essential! The old days of physical portfolios and demo-reel are behind us - a well put-together, good-looking site, as small as it may be, is the new calling card.

And what you need to know to make a website and publish to the internet can be nebulous and/or overwhelming. Beyond a nice layout design with tasteful visuals and fonts, you have to consider your content strategy & purpose, information architecture, the myriad tools & platforms at your disposal, as well as a host of technical items that stand between you and putting yourself online.

This is an introductory workshop suitable for beginners looking to get a sturdy understanding in any or all of the concepts listed above. Whether it’s a gallery of your work, a landing page for your business, or a blog (or all 3!), students will be able to publish a website to their own domain that demonstrates capable skill and understanding of the medium.

Students will be working with the Squarespace platform.

Prerequisite: Ability to comfortably use a computer and web browser.
