Course description

Looking to design websites, either professionally or for your own use? Award-winning veteran trainer Geoff Blake will guide you through the process of building an entire web page from scratch using Photoshop! You’ll learn how to best organize the Photoshop interface to streamline your workspace for web design, eliminating the clutter and making creating web pages fast and easy. Explore the various grid systems that can be used as templates to build professional looking web pages. Next, it’s on to wireframing and UI design, where you’ll learn how to create a mockup that can be sent to clients for approval, or simply kept for personal reference. You’ll also discover how to build upon a wireframe to design a beautiful, and functional web page. Once you’re satisfied with your design, this course will show you how to extract the HTML and CSS that will bring your design to life, and how to customize the code to suit your needs. So if you’re interested in web design for fun or profit, this course will set you up with everything you will need.

Course prerequisites

It’s a good idea to be familiar with the following before enrolling in this course:

  • General computer skills (comfortable copying and pasting, navigating through folders…the basics).
  • Comfortable using a web browser, navigating web pages, etc.
  • A working copy of Photoshop CS4 or above (the free trial version is fine).
  • No prior experience with coding or web design is required.
  • A basic understanding of Photoshop is helpful (my Getting Started With Photoshop CC course or equivalent), but not required.
  • A familiarity with web design fundamentals is helpful, but not required.

Sound like a good fit? Then let’s get started! If not, then let’s find the right course for you.

“From the web layout’s header, down to the footer, Geoff literally walks us through each section of the design, including graphics, code and so much more. Plus, after learning all his helpful Photoshop hints, tips and tricks, all I can say is that I wish I found this course sooner!”

Let a friend show you how

Hey, I’m Geoff. I help graphic designers, small business owners, and creative people just like you learn about web design, develop valuable, in-demand skills, launch online businesses and creative projects…and yeah, make more money! Learn more about me here.

Learning how to build websites is no different than figuring out perspective drawing, how to weave literary prose, or how to combine chords to make beautiful music. It’s like cooking or woodworking or learning how to fix your car…But for whatever reason, web design’s made out to be highly technical and overly complicated. Let’s change that.
