Why Web Design? 
The web has become a space for anyone to explore their creativity and the perfect place to show off a skillset; either through a blog, personal or company website. The first question you will always find yourself asking is “How do I go about designing a website? Where do I start?”. That’s where this workshop comes in! Ladies Learning Code's Introduction to Web Design workshop in a full-day hands-on learning experience, focusing on the fundamentals of setting up your workspace, selecting a layout, creating reusable templates, and understanding the impact that a Content Management System (like Wordpress, or Joomla) has on your design. The main objective is to set you up for success when you are faced with a web design project, big or small!

About Your Project
We will teach you web design fundamentals throughout the day with the final result being a fully mocked-up web page! You'll learn to create things like grids and a layout, headers, footers and templates - everything you need to know to design your website. But be warned - web design can be pretty addictive once you have all the power and knowledge to do it yourself.
