Creating a web site is very exciting.  How do the pro’s do it?  They create a template or mock up of the site’s look and feel first.  They usually do this in a graphic program like Adobe Illustrator.  It is like a story board of your plan for the site.  Once completed, a designer shows this to the client for revision and / or approval.

Where to start:

  1. Find a web site to copy, maybe from CSSZenGarden.com?
  2. Create a folder titled, “portfolio”
  3. Create a folder titled, “media”
  4. Create an Illustrator document titled, “my portfolio.ai”
  5. Save your “my portfolio.ai” document into the portfolio folder
  6. Place the web address of the site you are copying or emulating, example: http://www.csszengarden.com
  7. Place the images and text into your “my portfolio.ai” document
