    Web Portfolio Opinions

    The light design does look pretty swell. Based on this site (and what you know/are learning) I don't think you'll have any problems finding work. I'd recommend considering Angular.js over Backbone, in my area companies have more or less all abandoned Backbone for Angular/Ember/what have you.

    Review my design : am I on the right track ?

    Noticed this especially on your portfolio pages, but you're compressing images and it's affecting the experience for me: Your portfolio screenshots are 900x499 sized images, and they're being squeezed down to fit 560x310px on my macbook's...

    Horizontal Menu Cuurent Page Style

    Alternatively, you could set an id on <body> so that you can make other changes to a page's css, as needed (useful for when you have multiple templates' worth of CSS in one stylesheet) <body id='about'> // <--- set this with PHP ... <li class='home' ><a href="#">Home</a></li> <li...

    Learning HTML & CSS with Codecademy?

    I urged a friend to try it, as a guinea pig of sorts - semi-savvy computer user with no programming experience. It worked out pretty well for him - he went from being a bicycle courier to moving out of state for a pretty good computer job in California. Your mileage may vary, but I've gone...

    Adobe Photoshop Sliced site design need help

    Based on what you're saying it sounds like you're a designer, not a developer. I would look into an adobe cloud membership - you can have dreamweaver for something to the tune of $6/month. Otherwise, consider looking for a freelancer who can build the HTML for you. Here we might help you learn...

    Abobe Muse

    Asking a developer what they think of this would be like asking a designer what they think of Canva; great for inexperienced users, but professional designers/developers need professional tools to exact the kind of control they need.

    Did anyone here become a freelance web designer without working at a web design firm?

    Hi, voodoochild - I feel there are many tracks to get into web development/design. To make a long story short, I think the best approach is as follows: Even a community college, 2 year program in web design will earn you the "student" title. For starting out, being able to bill yourself as a...

    Help out a newbie

    Hi heroic, The problem is that you are trying to position two block-level elements in a container with a specified height. There are two aspects of CSS to consider: display, and float. Both of these articles should put you on the right track -

    Angular.js best practice?

    Learning Angular.js for a few projects, but I'm finding the learning curve starts to get pretty steep as the apps become more complicated. Here is a UI module I've been building. I've used CSS3 animations where applicable, and jQuery for some vertical scrolling. It's very functional and...

    People Hate My Logo

    As long as you're getting clients, I don't see the problem. If you think you would get more clients, then consider making a logo that potential clients would be attracted to. Otherwise, re-branding yourself needlessly could confuse the clients you have now (and potentially communicate...

    separating an object from background

    Depends on what you need the final result for - if you need a vector out of it, I would use the pen tool. If you just need the selection, try doing a select by color - like so.

    Logo Design For Travel Site

    Hi, Brandon! My first question after looking at your site was how you've managed to find a career that would let you travel for free - successful blogs are often written in a way that tells a story, and I think who you are/what you do helps define that narrative.

    Need a Starting Place

    I'll mull this over and get back to you - If it's just something you'd love to use if it was available, I could see about making something and making it available (but I would be the one generating income from it). If you want it to be a business that you could be in ownership of, though, it...

    Good eye - is this cross-browser? I can't duplicate it in FF, haven't tried Chrome yet either.

    Need a Starting Place

    I've more or less built something that can do these exact things (for web, tablet, and mobile). Are you interested in this from a business standpoint? As far as learning projects go, it took me the better part of a month at a previous contract to develop - and I knew what I was doing (most of...
