Less is more but simple is hard. Designing for the web can be the most rewarding activity, creating an interactive interface that many people will use – but it can also be the most tedious. There are a lot of things to consider before you start spinning your threads to create your website. The most important one is you can’t know everything. No designer knows everything. You know those programming geniuses on routine cop shows that know every possible route and there’s nothing that they can’t do? Wrong. Nobody is really like that. Designing for the web is about learning what tools work best for you and taking it day by day. Every project is going to be different: varying audiences, content, contexts, and reasons you’re doing this project. You’ll learn the most by doing – so go create! But first, you should probably read more about the things you need to know about designing for the web at Treehouse Blog.
