    I am a new comer to WordPress and Artisteer, but have been writing html and css for almost two years. I just finished a video course on WordPress about 3 weeks ago. I use Photoshop CS6 also.
    One thing I have come to realize is that if one has a good understanding of html and css they can appreciate the tool they are using a lot more – I find this to be very true with the little bit of use that I have with Artisteer.

    Thank you for this video series – the one on good design has been very helpful to me and I am looking forward to finishing the rest of the videos.

    As a designer, you pointed out something that I think is very important and that is to put a slight contrast to where text is placed. I have condition called Irlens Syndrome (a lot of the population have it and don’t know it) which makes reading text difficult whether on paper or anything when the background is bright white or as you pointed out black with white text. (Google Irlens Syndrom when you have time).

    Any way – great job! – this is very much appreciated from one that is a visual learner.

    Thanks for an entertaining and well thought out tutorial Zach – enough to whet the appetite, not too heavy for indigestion!
    I personally enjoyed the Photoshop section, and found it a helpful easel to display what you were trying to get across… nothing wrong with being stretched a little bit, and the ideas you bring out can be practiced on many other programs.

    Really looking forward to the next one.

    Excellent! Our eyes know what we like when we see a great looking site but this gives insight to what the elements are that make it so. Thank you!

  • Thanks for the great tutorial… I knew a lot of it (as a former designer, just getting back into the business), but I REALLY could have used this when I first got started years ago… I had to learn many of these things the hard way.

    Very, VERY good points about aesthetics and subtlety…

    Looking forward to the upcoming modules!

    p.s. My website is not up and running at this time, but will be soon. :)

    HI Zack,
    Stumbled upon your tutorial when checking out the forum at Artisteer. I haven’t looked at Artisteer since 2.5 or so, but I paid for it so i decided to see what the next version would like. I am sooooooo presently surprised. I gave it a quick go, and within 10 minutes I had a really nice starting point on WordPress, very quick, very clean, a delight to work with. So much for Artiseer.

    You want (of course) comments on your tutorial, and I have no comment to leave but: GREAT! Very professional, and it is obvious you love what you do.

    Thank you, can’t wait to finish diner and dive into the next module!!
