If you are a designer and don’t understand the code below, you will not be able to work in Webarnia [AKA the Internet].

<center> <font face = “arial”> <h2>Hi! </h2> <br> <b>Welcome to <a href = “webnarnia.com> Webnarnia </a> <br><br> <font color = “#000000”> <br><br> I would like to get your opinion on something. <br><br> We have been trying to build a landing page to bring in the tourists, but we can’t seem to figure out where our code is wrong. Can you help? <br><br> <table> <body> <tr><td> <a href = “firehouse”> <font color = “#D11600”> Firehouse Red</font color></td> </tr> <tr> <td> <a href = “townhall.com”> <font color = “66008c”> Purple Violet </font color> </a> </td> </tr> </body> </table> </center>

Not only is your knowledge of HTML coding necessary, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery are all vital to rounding out your skills as a creative professional. With the ability to create a number of engaging designs, these codes also serve as inspirations and data trackers.

Patrick McNeil’s Web Design Collection Level 2 can provide you with expert knowledge on all four codes


beginning with an independent study on the principles of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Coding for Designers: JavaScript and jQuery is the second part of the collection, which is done through completely immersing designers into the functionality of the codes using these tools for creating visually pleasing sites and designs.

Once you have the skills, McNeil’s two books – The Web Designer’s Idea Book: the Ultimate Guide to Themes, Trends and Styles in Web Design volumes 1 and 2, also included in the collection, will give you examples of over 1300 websites to inspire you. The cost for the entire Web Design Collection Level 2 is just $159. Forty dollars less than the cost of one code class typically provided by McNeil. We want you to gain all the tools you need to exceed in your design career.

McNeil will be leading a workshop at the upcoming HOW Design Live. If you haven’t registered, now is the time. The full conference ticket will gain you access to the top designers and firms in the world. McNeil’s Site of the Day picks on HOWDesign.com are great teaching tools. I’m including a few of my favorites below.


“This personal wedding site serves as a vivid example, storytelling is one of the next big trends in web design.” “This kid-friendly website achieves the right balance between thematic design and meaningful content.”


“If you don’t have much to say, be sure you make the message pretty.”
