Q: I want to learn web design…

Hi David, you say you want to learn web design. Can I ask, is this so that you can provide website design services to clients, or are you seeking to build a website for your own business?  You see, there are a number of routes you can take.

A: You say you know a little HTML…

That’s good, as these skills can work to your advantage, regardless of which route you take. 

In my opinion, however, there is nothing more reliable than hands-on experience, which you can acquire through practicing on your computer, there are plenty of free resource available on the internet from which you can learn how to build and design websites using code, or the non-coding approach found with website visual editors. 

Personally, and depending on what it is you want to achieve, we find non-coding platforms such as Webflow, and WordPress as good alternative methods for building an array of different types of websites. 

Overall, there are several options for learning website design, depending on your goals and preferences. Here are a few options to consider:

  1. Online courses: There are many online courses available that teach website design. Platforms like Udemy, Skillshare, and Coursera offer courses that cover everything from the basics of web design to more advanced topics like responsive design and user experience (UX) design.
  2. YouTube tutorials: YouTube has a vast library of video tutorials that cover various aspects of website design. Channels like The Net Ninja, Traversy Media, and DesignCourse offer high-quality tutorials that are easy to follow.
  3. Online communities: Online communities like Stack Overflow, Reddit, and GitHub can be great resources for learning website design. These communities allow you to ask questions, share your work, and get feedback from other designers and developers.
  4. Design blogs and websites: There are many design blogs and websites that offer articles, tutorials, and resources on website design. Smashing Magazine, A List Apart, and Creative Bloq are just a few examples.
  5. Books: There are many books available that cover various aspects of website design. Some popular books include “Don’t Make Me Think” by Steve Krug, “The Elements of User Experience” by Jesse James Garrett, and “Responsive Web Design” by Ethan Marcotte.
