Hello, im Emma. I a graphic designer looking to go full time. Im currently fluent in the graphics portion of design but really want to dive into learning to code websites as well. I think having both skills ets can be very beneficial and there seems to be a demand for that around my area.
Im working with a client right now to re-brand her photography business (im a former photographer myself) and were are working on her wordpress blog. I have been through a whole slue of themes trying to find the right one for my knowledge level. Here are my questions for you season pros out there:
1. What is the most functional and easily updated (by the client, later on) theme out there in your opinion. (My goal is to find a theme and purchase a developers license to produce client sites with it)
2. Since I am learning as i go, the current woo theme (premium news – free) i am customizing is taking me an extremely long time to go through and get it right. I love the theme itself but im wondering if i should stick with something that is easier to customize without knowing a ton of code right now, like maybe Headway? Or should i just stick with a theme like woo that requires heavy code updating (since i need such a large amount of customizations) so that i can learn it now…?
3. What are your recommendations for learning these things…youtube? a “for dummies” book? 🙂
Im open to any and all suggestions! Like i said, im new to this, so…Teach me Obi-Wan!
