If you're new here to the #kathycodes journey, let me start off by saying Welcome! 🎉
This is my first round of #100daysofcode so I'm starting off as a beginner and I'm learning with Skillcrush — Break into Tech course
I'll be documenting my journey in several ways, if you want tidbits find me on twitter at @kathyjeanjoseph to view my to the day updates of my journey.
Visual? I'm on YouTube and view me in action and a less detailed version of my problems, solutions and takeaways.
In my SkillCrush course, this particular module is in the Web Design Fundamentals Course.
The focus was particularly on defining UI, Intuitive Design & Design Patterns & Trends.
User Interface: How your site graphics, layout & text work together to help users find what they need.
Intuitive Design: Designing sites that users can figure out on their own.
Design Patterns: Pre-built solutions to common web design & UI problems that are proven to work look great.
Design Trends: Popular aesthetic styles that define how things look.
Common design patterns —
- page/layout based ways to design the things that users will commonly go to a website to click on. i.e. linking logo to homepage, example text in email input box, etc.
Common design trends —
- Minimalist Design
- Subtle Gradients
- Large, bold type etc.
