This blog post will cover the materiel from week 1 of ART 170: Web Design 1.
The reading list for this week included:
- What is FTP, and how do I use it to transfer files?
- A Brief History of Markup
- Chapter 2: Color, Principles of Beautiful Web Design
The majority of this weeks assignments were Introductions, and the standard beginning of the semester assignment (Student Academic Policy, etc.), however we did begin to cover the history of HTML, opened p a WordPress blog (but you already knew that), and some nitty gritty of behind the scenes stuff like FTPs and file directories on servers.
I also began to get ahead on the Lynda videos for this class. The weren’t required for this week, but I’m teaching myself the Adobe suites for work, and so I’ve started to learn how to design websites inside of Photoshop, and realized that it would make coding so much easier than just using a pen on paper sketch. Especially since it gives you X and Y coordinates.
