I learned essential website design and development skills in this blueprint. In Visual Design Fundamentals and Tools, we covered everything from typography and color to sitemaps and wireframes. Then we learned HTML and CSS and how to take a PSD and turn it into a live, responsive website. In the Web Designer Apprenticeship, we discussed the business side of website design and development, such as freelancing best practices and how to market yourself.
