View Full Version : Grayscale Prototyping Process and advanced design topics?

06-10-2009, 12:35 AM

I'm getting into the more advanced topics of CSS3 / XHTML web publishing & 2-d design this summer. I want to develop a self-study curriculum (college is too expensive, and doesn't really teach what I want to learn).

I know this is going to sound like a little kid posing this question, but if we didn't ask questions how would we ever learn, right? :thumbsup:

I want to learn the best practices for designing to the grid, and designing for both 1024x768 and 800x600 canvases.

Prerequisites: College Algebra, Technical Writing and XHTML / CSS3 / JavaScript and DOM, modular PHP design and basic understanding of MySQL, matrices etc.

Now that I have these down, I wish to study pagination, user interface design, web usability specs etc. I'll pick up Photoshop, Dreamweaver and Elements, later.

Basically, since employers are looking for customized CMS'es mainly, I wish to study user interface design from a top-down and modular approach.

Any suggestions where to go from here and what reading material is the most up to date?
