About the workshop
Join designer and author Andy Clarke for a full day learning how to use the most up-to-date CSS in your work today. Be inspired to find new ways of designing using CSS.
Modern web browsers now better capable of rendering advanced CSS than ever before. From highly targeted CSS selectors to new ways to work with layout, colour and typography, if you are a web designer or developer, working with CSS has never been more exciting.
‘Advanced CSS Styling’ is a unique one-day master class presented by Andy Clarke, designer and author of the best-selling Transcending CSS. Spend the day with Andy learning how to use the most up-to-date CSS techniques in your everyday work.
What you will learn
- How to design balanced, inspired layouts using advanced CSS positioning techniques
- New ways to work with colour using RGBa
- Using multiple background and border images
- How to use text and box shadows
- About CSS gradients, reflections and transitions
Of course the browser landscape is varied and each browser supports different CSS properties. You will learn how to design around, rather than hack around these natural differences to create experiences that are enjoyable for everyone, no matter which browser they use. You will learn:
- Modernizr and how it will help you to design around browser support
- When using Universal Internet Explorer 6 is appropriate
Web typography is one of the hottest topics in web design and development. As a self-confessed typography perfectionist, Andy will teach you:
- Working with font embedding solutions including Typekit, Kernest and Cufon
- Creating striking, readable type with typographic hierarchies
- How to improve web typography with letter-spacing, leading and baseline shifts
In this full day master class, you will also learn the latest techniques for designing in a browser and how to test your designs for web accessibility throughout your design process.
