It's day three of the Basics Design tutorial! Today we'll be continuing on with the coding - specifically we'll be writing the HTML/CSS for the homepage and the blog single post page. Adi has recorded another HD video tutorial covering the crucial PSD > HTML conversion process. Whether you're a seasoned veteran or a new designer, we hope you enjoy the walkthrough! Let's start day 3...


About this Tutorial Series

Adi Purdila is going to walk us through an entire project - from design to coding - all here on Webdesigntuts this week! Here's the outline of what we'll be going over in each day:

  • Day 1. Homepage and blog single page PSD files
  • Day 2. Homepage PSD slicing and markup
  • Day 3. Styling the homepage and blog single page
  • Day 4. Let's create some more pages: gallery, contact, full width
  • Day 5. Finishing touches: installing and customizing SlideDeck and some JavaScript work


A note on the downloadable files for today
: the full HTML will be available for download in the next session of this series (Day 3), so today is going to be working from the same PSD files that we created in Day 1.

Now on to Day 3, the slicing and markup session!


Day Three: HTML/CSS for the Homepage and Blog

We've recorded these videos in full HD resolution, so be sure to turn on the full screen HD version if you're able to! This video includes the full slicing and markup session, recorded at 720p with full audio commentary throughout.

About the Author

"Whether it’s websites, logos or print materials, my work philosophy is the same: never take any shortcuts and always put my heart and soul into each project because in the end, it’s the small details that count and the more effort I put into a project, the better it represents myself as a person and a designer and at the same time, it represents my client in a manner that’s appropriate to his needs.

If you’re interested in the HTML Templates and Landing Pages I’m developing, you can check them out on my portfolio page on ThemeForest." - Adi
