How to Design a Website

How to Design a WebsiteIn this video tutorial, I’ll show you how to design a website quickly.

I start out with a basic sketch that took me 10 minutes to draw. I explain what I’m thinking about as I create that sketch.

I then show you how to quickly draw everything using the free version of Artisteer. After everything looks nice I throw it into Adobe Illustrator for additional editing.

For those who don’t have Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape is a great free alternative.

In the next few tutorials I’ll fix the featured content slider so that it works for my new design. Then I’ll turn the mock up into a finished web design. This web design will then be turned into a finished WordPress Shopping Cart.

      I’m working on solving this problem as we speak. As soon as I have a fix I’ll upload it in the next wordpress theme tutorial. I as well have horizontal menu problems in IE 6 and 7. Don’t worry I’ll fix it

      I’m remaking the horizontal menu using a little JQuery. That will make it cross browser on everything. I’ll put it up as soon as I can

      Hi, The tutorial for the shopping cart actually started with How to Design a Website. If you search for shopping on my site, you’ll see all of the videos in order. I give you the theme and show you how to set up everything. That site has made a great deal of money and have never had a single security issue. I’m very happy with it. I hope it helps
