  1. Design Complete Website With Free Domain | Free Hosting | Free WHMCS & Free aMember Pro Only @ hostmarch . com

  2. You should add links in the description to certain points on the video like Lifehacker’s Youtube videos. Thanks

  3. To me WordPress, Drupal, and other CMSs are just that,content management systems. Just because someone uses them (I use them) doesn’t mean a thing. Fast Company’s site is a drupal site, and to me it’s one of the best on the NET I like going to the site, I look forward to it. Making it easy for the end user to use the site is job 1. Who really cares what platform it’s on, the HTML and CSS can be customized (should be customized). The CMSs make life easier for us and more importantly the users.

  4. hey Jose and Aurie, thanks for sharing the knowledge about how to use the grid. My designs look so good that many of my colleagues think I use templates! lol

  5. Yes. You can A. Work for an agency B. Work with a development partner C. Use something like PSD to HTML (A service that does your HTML). Today its super easy to build website with WordPress. I am not a hardcore developer and I can set up a wordpress site on a server and customize the CSS. You DO need to get your hands dirty with “TECH” stuff. Not matter what.

  6. Yeah if you are a talented graphic designer with a good understanding of the web, some companies have someone who does the PSDs then a developer who will turn that PSD into a functioning website.

  8. This is one of the hardest things I’ve faced. Getting content from clients. Write a content specification document, saying exactly what you need and how much. Keep sending it back to them until you get what you need.

    It’s the only way.

  9. Well, you’ll need to find someone to code up the designs or no-one is going to hire you. Unless you sell PSDs on something like Themeforest.
