Today, I spent an hour to finish the HTML section of the freecodecamp Responsive Web Design. While it was not that hard for me to remember the syntax, I stumbled upon a problem: What does a typical webpage even display? I faintly remember that there is some kind of navigation at the top of a website, and most of them have their terms&conditions displayed in the footer.
Before I am going to start on working on my first project, I need to decide on how the end result should look like!
So instead of jumping right into the CSS Section of the Responsive Web Design Curriculum, I want to take a few days worth of time and learn about the fundamentals of web design.
I want to know what ensures a good „reading flow“ for the user, how I can decide on which colours to choose from for my website and create a checklist to work through.
These Youtube Videos helped me to establish my „Work“ Routine:
Where to start and where to go:
Fundamentals of Webdesign
While this course offers a paid version, I have decided that those free videos will help me to gain ideas on how to design the Coffeeshop website, and should suffice for now.
I conclude my homework for today and the next few days:
- Watch and learn from the Flux Free Web Design Course
- Learn about Figma
- Create a simple outline for the coffeeshop website.
