Hi all - wondering if anyone can offer some advice. I work as the head creative designer at a printing company in the Philadelphia area. We're looking to expand our services to web design and I've volunteered myself to be the lucky one to learn it. So far I've learned basic (X)HTML and am currently slogging through learning CSS.
I've used the book (and website) "HTML Dog", which was incredibly helpful in terms of learning purely code, and am also working through "Mastering CSS with Dreamweaver CS4" mainly because I know the rest of the Adobe Creative Suite and want to add Dreamweaver to my skill-set.
What is the best way to navigate from the world of print design to web design?
a. I've got extensive training in the fundamentals of print design: color theory, typography, composition, etc... Beyond HTML and CSS, what else do I need to learn to be a valuable asset to my employer?
b. Are there any good resources for a beginner trying to understand web-hosting? I'm getting to the point where I can design a nice-looking basic website, but I have no idea how to get it up and working on the web.
These may seem like basic questions, but I have absolutely no experience yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
