essential guide to web design

The web made its debut back in 1991,adding a graphical user interface to the internet. As such, web design was born. In its infancy, web design was heavily restricted by technology and hardware, with a web presence being little more than black text on a white background. Thankfully, technology and web design have reached a far more creative and imaginative stage in their evolutions. Skipping past frames, tables and animated GIFs, web design has become far more sophisticated and will continue to grow and develop.

an introduction to html

The majority of webpages are made up of one or more files that are downloaded to a computer, which in turn are interpreted by a web browser and finally rendered out to screen. At its simplest, a web page is a plain text file that contains special instructions about what kind of content is contained within. These instructions are written in HTML – the language used on the world wide web. HTML, or HyperText Markup Language to give it the full name, is the core building block of a web page.

code a link

While links may seem like a simple element to add to a webpage, they are the key building blocks of the entire internet. Imagine having to type a different address into the browser for every single page you wanted to visit on the web! Similar to pages within a book, separate webpages within a website help to break up content by topic or purpose. Then, by adding in a navigation bar or something similar to your site, it means that visitors will be able to quickly move to the content that they are interested in. Links are also one of the most important elements that Google and other search engines use to find and index your site. The kind of content that you link out to, and the kind of content…

create lists in your website

Lists are an effective way of presenting important information in a way that’s quick and easy for your audience to read and digest. They are also a good method for giving a brief overview or introduction of the content to follow, helping your users find what it is they are looking for.
