How do I learn the basics of web design?


Recently a client asked me if I had any recommendations for resources, classes, or tips for how to learn the basics of web design. This particular client is an employee of a company utilizing HubSpot for their blog. She is tasked with making landing pages and updating blog posts in HubSpot and is eager to learn more about websites and code.

Today, I watched WebFlow University’s Webflow 101. I realized that the first three videos are an excellent overview of how a website works; they truly are Web Basics. These three videos explain how websites are made of boxes (the box model) and also explain HTML and CSS. I’ve passed these web introductory videos on to my client and thought I’d share them in this post, too. Take a look.
