Course Description

Ready for an adventure into WordPress Theme Design? Join award-winning veteran trainer Geoff Blake as he takes you through the entire workflow process of scratch-building a WordPress theme using Photoshop! The training begins in Photoshop, where you’ll be introduced to some setup options and settings to optimize Photoshop for web design. Then, learn about building and using various grid systems, which will serve as the template for the theme layout. Next, it’s on to the next phase in the workflow process, wire framing and UI design in Photoshop. Learn how to stay organized and work quickly and efficiently. Once the wireframe structure is complete, you’ll see how to apply design to the wireframe, and then move the entire layout from Photoshop into the world of code. You’ll discover how to construct a WordPress theme from the ground up, starting with a completely blank canvas! You’ll see a variety of techniques for working between Photoshop, WordPress’s architecture, and the HTML, PHP, and CSS code that pulls it all together.
