Creating Foundations

Designing and creating for the web goes hand-in-hand. The cornerstone of any good design relies upon a solid foundation of well-crafted HTML; once this structure is in place, styling can be concentrated upon. Designing for the web can be hugely creative, but we have to be mindful of the various challenges of browser support and accessibility, before we reach that end goal of a beautifully crafted site that sticks in the memory.
I’ve created three individual workshops, each tailored to concentrate upon strengthening the knowledge of web design practice from the ground up. These related workshops explore: building a solid foundation of semantic markup with HTML5; engaging the audience through beautiful design applied via CSS3; and, finally, ensuring everything is cross-platform and extensively tested.

Workshop 3 – Browser Support & Useful Resources

Once a design is created, you need to test how structurally sound is it. Browser support can be a tricky subject, but it’s one that’s critical to be aware of. Designers are continually pushing boundaries and creating great user experiences. When properly informed of browser pitfalls you can learn to tailor your code and instill your audiences faith and trust within your service.

What I’ll cover?


  • Examine and explore the realities of browser support.
  • Discuss the alternatives to browser problems.
  • Explore useful resources to aid your design process.
