I have been designing my own blog graphics, backgrounds, and buttons for a long time now. I taught myself with HTML books and reading websites based on website design. It’s not hard if you have the right books to teach you what you’re supposed to be learning. O’Reilly Media produces many of the books that have helped me along the way. This book is no different. HTML changes up so fast, just like the internet that it’s best to stay on top of stuff. Something you design today could not be relevant in the next month. HTML is always updating, but the basics almost always stay the same. If you want to learn how to design websites, graphics, or anything that will be places on the internet, you’ll need to learn HTML design. It’s the basic of all website design. I started out with Head First HTML from O’Reilly Media (GREAT read by the way). Same as this book, it is a great place to start for those wanting to learn HTML5 without all the complications.

The Web Designer's Roadmap

The Web Designer's Roadmap

The Web Designers Roadmap is a book about the creative process behind web design. One of the most challenging problems with design is knowing where to start, where to get ideas, and how to turn the ideas into actual web design whether it’s a website, app, or blog design. This book focuses more on the actual structure of the design process. It doesn’t really let us jump into the HTML/CSS code and learn HOW to design. The book focuses on thought process and the different ideas and structure of beauty. Full Review >
