In this course I will show you how to design a pixel-perfect, beautiful website design using the Adobe photo editing (Photoshop) and vector editing (Illustrator) applications – I will also show you how to do most of the same with the free tool GIMP.
This course would be extremely useful for graphic designers and web designers who want to show their clients exactly what they'll get before they start developing the website
By creating and amending any web page to look exactly the way the client wants, you can start charging in excess of $3000 and much more for every website you produce
Because clients will pay extra for the custom feel that you will give their websites
Are you worried that you won't be able to deliver on the development of this website afterwards? Well, don't worry!
Because I will show you the tricks to change beautiful WordPress themes (we use the Genesis sample child theme) in a browser using Developer Tools that will be then be easy to develop after client has passed the design.
You will also learn loads of extra tricks in Photoshop, Illustrator and GIMP:
And by the time the course is finished you will be able to work up an exact visual replica of any website, mobile app, tablet app or any sort of digital interface that you care to imagine
