Be a Web Designer that Developers Love

Learn five tricks for how graphic designers can work more closely with web developers and programmers.




This event is at capacity. There will be no sales at the door.

In this hands-on, bring-your-own-laptop session with teacher and web developer Jim Webb, we'll cover tricks for how designers can work more closely with web developers and programmers. We’ll cover:

  • The seven mistakes new web designers make with developers
  • How to adjust type, color, and layout without knowing HTML and CSS
  • How to learn enough code to be dangerous
