This video on DVD is by renowned designer and author Andy Clarke. In his book, Transcending CSS: The Fine Art Of Web Design (New Riders), Andy set the stage for the development of progressive Web site design using XHTML, CSS and other Web-standards technologies. In this new video, he takes a step back and teaches some fundamental concepts about designing using CSS and working with a range of browser tools to open up the creative opportunities.
Viewers will learn how to design for the web by using the browser and how to lay the foundations for their designs using meaningful and accessible markup. You'll learn about the fundamentals of CSS typography and color, and how to lay out pages using CSS floats, positioning, and columns. The design workflow becomes faster and more efficient, and more accurately representative of how designs will be viewed in the final result.
Andy demonstrates these concepts using examples from a fictitious social networking site he created and files are included on the disc for viewers to follow along.
