  1. I have a general question. Would a 15″ MacBook Pro be sufficient for getting starting in web design?

  2. @fxesifj My account is going mental with $1300 to $2400 per day. If you don’t find the right niche you won’t get anywhere. Trust me your gonna like this course, have a look here: bit.ly/P7tmZA?=cqovwt

  3. that was months ago, and I meant websites that aren’t live. And I have a real portfolio now, but thanks for answering.

  4. you def dont want to put up something that is not your work. that’s scamming. and more importantly, people will know real fast if you arent able to deliver what you are presenting as your work. but it just crossed my mind, if by “fake” you meant websites created by yourself but doesn’t “belong” to anyone or a real client, then that’s completely acceptable. You can “give” it someone for free or even do work for friends. Or charge $1 or a dinner out or something.

  5. not fake but a kind of exercise project that shows ur creative skills & other abilities like good layout, optimized graphics, fonts etc portfolio is basically showcasing ur skills(strong and perfected) u want to put out ur best out there.

  6. Yeah, I can’t count how many videos I’ve watched of yours! They’re great, very informational. I spend my mornings and nights pretty much watching your videos. I’ve seem to grown a passion for Web Design/ Graphics Designing. I loved how these two things combined pretty much provide an infinate amount of choices you can use to create things that you normaly wouldn’t think of!

  7. Hi Bailey, I don’t have too many tutorials on HTML/CSS. Checkout w3schools for some good insight into advanced html/css. And continue to check out my videos for all sorts of other advice. Browse through my youtube channel videos and I’m sure a lot of your questions will be answered there. 😉

  8. Hey Mike! I’m currently 14 years old, I am new to Web Design and would like some tips/ pointers. Do you have any type of free tutorials getting started with CSS, some more Advanced HTML and that sort of stuff? I’m very interested, I’m working on creating a basic portfolio website and I’m going for a simplistic, minimalist look to it but still make it look good. Any tips? -Bailey

  9. Would it be a bad idea to include a blogger dot com blog into your portfolio starting off?

  10. Wow! Your videos are excellent training material. I really appreciate your hard work! Thanks. Keep up the good work. Why not create the Yt Web Design Academy your a great teacher.

  11. Hey Michael, just started watching your videos today. Some great advice thank you. Also what do you use to record your videos for Youtube. The quality is excellent.
    I am just coming back to web design after 10 years running a PC repair business. Business is getting harder to come by here in the UK so I decided it’s time to diversify. I prefer Fireworks to Photoshop as it seems more user friendly. May I contact you if I get really stuck with issues?
    Thanks

  12. i am going to be doing a restaurant design project in my graphic design class in high school. thanks for the idea on what to do for it.

  13. It is really hard for people these days to choose the right web design company,because the competition is huge,and people don’t want to be a victim of short age company’s,for example you make your website with them and they disappear for 1 year.That is why the trust is important and to be alive through good and bad days of economy ,right there is the essence of good and BEST web design company.

  14. Thanks a lot. I’m really inspired by you.
    Planning is mandatory for business success. and in this video u organized some basic thoughts which I consider them really helpful. thank again 🙂

  15. I think you need to be part of a team to make a real success. There are a few talented designers / developers who can do it all. For most of us, it’s hard enough keeping up with one area. As a designer, i now accept that i am pants at php and coding stuff. So, there are great developers who are pants at design. So it makes sense to team up with a trustworthy partner because you’ll do it quicker and better and share the headaches and the success.
    Good advice thanks.

  16. Thanks for another great video, I joined lynda.com 3 months ago and I love it and your video has given me confidence that i’m on the right path many thanks .
