To start the adventure of creating your site, FA Design will give you an introduction to web design and online portfolios, with an explanation of the 'Responsive Web Design' where you will know why this is currently the most common way to design websites. Next, you will organize the content of the web portfolio and you will make the paper sketches on the architecture of the information, basically some 'wireframes' made by hand. For this purpose, you will use a grid as the basis of the design; this will help you to maintain a logic at a structural level and will be very useful for the programmer who will assemble the site.

You will practice a real work process with all the keys so that the web is fluid and easy to use. Finally, you will see some tips on how to prepare Photoshop files to be used by a programmer, it will be him who gives life to the design. You will also receive advice on how to promote the website once it is assembled and online.

WHAT IS THE FINAL PROJECT OF THE COURSE?

Web portfolios are not usually complex sites and it is a very useful project for any creative, perfect to start in the area of screen design. In addition, a Responsive website will be perfectly seen from any device (mobile, tablet ...).

A course by Francisco Aveledo

Teacher Plus
Web designer

My name is Francisco Aveledo and I work as a graphic designer under the name of FA Design. My specialty is web design and corporate image although I cover other areas of design. I have spent more than 15 years dedicating myself to design, many years of study and the last 6 years on my own.

I have always been passionate about digital design, although I also appreciate the traditional part of design, as I had the opportunity to learn both. Since I studied design, I liked the idea of designing for the screen, of organizing content and showing it efficiently. I have worked in many projects, both web, print, motion and other digital surfaces such as digital television service applications.
