Web design is trickier than it looks (like a lot of aikido waza
). If you wanna get some ideas of how a good site is put together, there are quite a few good resources on the net. Here's a couple to get you started:
Web Style Guide, 2nd ed.
- This should be required reading for anyone starting web design. Lays out the fundementals in a fairly easy to read, non-jargon filled language. Good stuff, and it's free!
Vincent Flanders' Web Pages That Suck
- This is a good one as well, but it teaches you what not
to do. Pretty funny as well. Lots of usability tips here.
