SPRING 2018 – Build Your Perfect Website. ALL THE VIDEOS!

Week 1 – Foundations

This week we are getting all the peices in place to enable us to build our sites over the coming weeks.

Week 2 – Headers, Footers, Colours and Fonts!

This week we are starting to personalise our sites.

Download the worksheet (below) and work through the different tasks until you have completed the top and bottom of your site. If you aren’t quite sure what you want at this stage, pick something you feel is OK for now and move on. You can always come back and tweak things later.

The video is also broken into the indivudual sections below the full recording.
