Description

Ladies Learning Code. An Introduction to Web Design. Photoshop for Beginners.




The web has become a space for anyone to explore their creativity and the perfect place to show off a skillset; either through a blog, personal or company website. The first question you will always find yourself asking is “How do I go about designing a website? Where do I start?”. That’s where this workshop comes in! Ladies Learning Code's Introduction to Web Design workshop in a full-day hands-on learning experience, focusing on the fundamentals of setting up your workspace, selecting a layout, creating reusable templates, and understanding the impact that a Content Management System (like Wordpress, or Joomla) has on your design. The main objective is to set you up for success when you are faced with a web design project, big or small!

At this full-day workshop, you’ll learn to use Photoshop and a bit of InDesign (plus as much design theory as we can reasonably fit in)!


About Your Project

We will teach you web design fundamentals throughout the day with the final result being a fully mocked-up web page! You'll learn to create things like grids and a layout, headers, footers and templates - everything you need to know to design your website. But be warned - web design can be pretty addictive once you have all the power and knowledge to do it yourself.
