    Hey everyone,

    I just wanted your thoughts on how best to approach a web design project like the one’s listed below.


    I’ve thought about creating one by using the 960 grid, but am i going the right way about it? The design is to eventually make it responsive.

    I have looked through the source code of websites made like this, but I just cannot get my head around it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!


    To flip this on its head a bit: I’ve never used the 960 grid framework. Sure, some of the websites I’ve created have been based around 960px but that doesn’t mean I used some sort of pre-built framework.

    Why is this a question of 960 vs non-960? What are you trying to accomplish?


    Thanks for your comment Doc. I come a background in graphic design and now i’m crossing over into web design. I’m used to working with grid systems. I thought the idea of using a grid system to create the websites above in the links, could be achieved by using one.

    I tried to do it, however found it very challenging. I’m not going to pretend, and say i’m a master coder. I’m pretty new to the whole web design game, with a beginner/intermediate knowledge of HTML and CSS.


    Web Design != Web Development, keep that in mind or people might not be able to follow your train of thought ;)

    I’d say you just have to keep on coding. Trial and error. Nobody gets this stuff overnight. Try building whatever it is you want to build and then come back to the forum with specific questions in areas that you get stumped. Specific things are really easy for forum members to answer to teach. Grand questions like, ‘how do I build this?’ don’t really help.

    Good luck!
