  1. I just found out a WP training course that will help you transform WordPress into a professional marketing platform. It is a really stunning and very important course for any marketer in any niche, You can literally follow the videos step by step and transform your blog in a few hours. if you wanna learn more search on YTube for a video titled: ——»”QQ Course” «—- and become a WordPress Guru in no time! 

  2. So the internet should just stay as it was 20 years ago? You did a very good job developing the foundations of what we use but to just leave it would be a waste. That’s how technology works. With that logic the Nokia 3310 was a good phone, we’ll use that forever. We’ll all work with IBM machines and Apple II’s because they worked.

  3. you developers have no emotion, first of all we are talking about a product made for the people, we human beings are visually oriented, we have eyes to gather visual information like shapes, lines, we are surrounded by graphics, it makes us understand better and better express ourselves. webdesign is not only about graphics or code, we also care about our clients needs and work together to achieve website/service success.

  4. Thank you for this production PBS. The Visual Design Fundamentals section with Jason Santa Maria was very valuable. The fact that web design should be thought of very differently than print design is a very valuable point. I experience the same issues as a video professional, trying to explain to clients that the font they are so fond of for use in their email or word documents, usually does not translate well on screen. Your point about additive color is very valid too. Thank you for this.

  5. I’m the head of design for Europe in a large corporation. I’ve been building sites from the birth of the wobbldy WOrld wide web. I’d say that there was a peak of design innovation. It went backwards from there. User interaction at the front end was being lectured in the early 90’s, I developed some of the worlds first content management systems. Most off shelf templates are adequate now, and cheap, and easily editable. Information and supply of relevant information is key. Design is just slap.

  6. We’re RWD in my class right now, and this is really some great inspiration. The OffBook-series are fantastic, I would very much like to see some more. Keep up the great work! 🙂
