I've worked on several websites for clients, although i am more of a programmer than a web designer. The websites i've built in the past have been mostly done on Photoshop (the graphics, buttons, etc...) and then i use those in my HTML/CSS to put it all together.
Normally, what i have done in Photoshop and i know can be done in Illustrator is to use slicing in order to get different "parts" and images saved so it's ready to use in the HTML part of the development.
However, I've gotten a request from a friend who has a design that has been done in Adobe Illustrator. The design has moving parts, moving background, an introduction video that starts automatically once the initial intro is done, and i have no idea how to go from his design to a working website. The person that worked on the design is a third party, and my friend asked me to look at the design and see if i can take that design and get it up and working.
Honestly, I'm inclined to tell him it's beyond what i've worked with, and since i don't have enough knowledge, he should get someone else who has more experience.
But at the same time, since the design/artwork is done (arguably the hardest part), i'm curious whether it's something simple that i can grasp and learn quick enough to help him turn this into a working website or whether it will require more experience than what i have to offer at this point.
I've looked around for explanations or tutorials, and found a lot of good illustrator tutorials, but none that explain how to take the illustrator design file and use it for the coding part of the process (html,css, etc...).
Does anyone have any thoughts? Any good resources i can look at? Any tips?
Thanks in advance!
