Welcome to Informatics Group of Institution, a leading Educational Training Center for the past 20 years in United Arab Emirates. We are offering Professional
Web Designing .
Web design is the visual aesthetics and page layout of a website. It goes hand-in-hand with web development in the creation of a static website or dynamic web application.
The Internet is everyone's go-to source of information in today's world. Businesses, public figures, publications and everything in between all have a presence on the web; and the more professional their website looks, the more successful they tend to be. Web designers are more in demand than ever before, and the profession is constantly changing along with the web itself. This course aims to teach the most up to date fundamentals of web design from scratch.
The web design process starts with a visual concept, which you could sketch by hand or with software like Photoshop. Then, you use HTML and CSS to build the website. HTML and CSS are the codes for writing web pages. HTML handles the basic structure and ‘bones’ of your page, while CSS handles the style and appearance.
Design, obviously, is a key part of "web design." What does this mean exactly? Design includes both the principles of design — balance, contrast, emphasis, rhythm and unity — and the design elements — lines, shapes, texture, color, and direction.
By putting these things together, a web designer creates websites, but a good web designer understands not only the principals of design but also the constraints of the Web. For example, a successful web designer will be skilled in typographic design principals, while also understanding the challenges of web design and specifically how it differs from other kinds of design.
Web Design Has Many Different Roles
When you work as a web designer, you may be tasked with creating (or working on) entire sites or just individual pages and there is a lot to learn to be a well-rounded designer, including the following:
HTML — This is the structure of web pages, creating the foundation of all websites
CSS — This is how web pages are visually styled. CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) handles the entire look of sites, including layout, typography, colors, and more
CGI programming — CGI, and the next few entries (PHP, ASP, etc.) are all different flavors of programming languages. Many sites do not require any of these languages, but sites that are more feature-rich will certainly need to be coded using some of these languages
PHP, ASP, ColdFusion scripting
Information architecture — The way a site's content and navigation is structured and presented helps make for a successful site that is easy and intuitive to use
SEO — Search engine optimization ensures that websites are attractive to Google and other search engines and that people looking for the products, services, or information features on that site can find it once they look for it online
Server management — All websites need to be hosted. The management of the servers that host those sites is an important web design skill
Web strategy and marketing — Having a website is not enough. Those sites will also need to be marketed with an ongoing digital strategy
E-commerce and conversions
Design — Creating the visual look and feel of websites has always been an important aspect of the industry
Speed — A successful site is one that loads quickly on a wide variety of devices, regardless of a visitors connection speed. Being able to tune the performance of sites is a very valuable skill
Content — People come to websites for the content that those sites contain. Being able to create that content is a critically important component in the world of website design
There's also so much more areas and skills that cross into the field of web design, but most designers don't try to cover all of them. Instead, a web designer will generally focus on one or two areas where they can excel. The other items in web design that are needed are ones that they can partner with others one as part of a larger web design team.
WEB DESIGN SOFTWARE
HTML + CSS
HTML is the language for describing the structure of Web pages. HTML gives authors the means to:
Publish online documents with headings, text, tables, lists, photos, etc.
Retrieve online information via hypertext links, at the click of a button.
Design forms for conducting transactions with remote services, for use in searching for information, making reservations, ordering products, etc.
Include spread-sheets, video clips, sound clips, and other applications directly in their documents.
With HTML, authors describe the structure of pages using markup. The elements of the language label pieces of content such as “paragraph,” “list,” “table,” and so on.
CSS is the language for describing the presentation of Web pages, including colors, layout, and fonts. It allows one to adapt the presentation to different types of devices, such as large screens, small screens, or printers. CSS is independent of HTML and can be used with any XML-based markup language. The separation of HTML from CSS makes it easier to maintain sites, share style sheets across pages, and tailor pages to different environments. This is referred to as the separation of structure (or: content) from presentation.
HTML, HyperText Markup Language, gives content structure and meaning by defining that content as, for example, headings, paragraphs, or images. CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, is a presentation language created to style the appearance of content—using, for example, fonts or colors. The two languages—HTML and CSS—are independent of one another and should remain that way. CSS should not be written inside of an HTML document and vice versa. As a rule, HTML will always represent content, and CSS will always represent the appearance of that content.
An HTML editor is a specialized piece of software that assists in the creation of HTML code. Similar to text editors such as Notepad and TextEdit, HTML editors allow users to enter raw text.
Most (if not all) professional web developers use an HTML editor to create and maintain their websites. This is because a good HTML editor can boost productivity enormously.
PHP stands for "Hypertext Preprocessor", is a programming language embedded in HTML that does all sort of things like build custom web content, send and receive cookies, evaluate form data sent from a browser, etc. It is integrated with number of popular databases like Postgre SQL, Oracle, Sybase, SQL, and MySQL. PHP also supports major protocols like IMAP, POP3 and LDAP.
PHP can handle forms, save data to a file, return data to the user, gather data from files, etc.
Dreamweaver was originally developed and published by Macromedia in 1997. Adobe purchased Macromedia (which included the rights to Dreamweaver) in 2005 and continued the development of the program. The many features of Dreamweaver make it a versatile web editing tool, where it be for creating complex or very simples sites.
