Last year, for the first time ever, I got my hands on some Macromedia toys (Dreamweaver, Flash, etc.) and I taught myself to make a pretty good web-page (which no longer exists because it was on my account at my old university). Since then, I’ve gotten more and more into it, because there’s some really kick-ass sites on the internet. I’d really like to be able to do design with flash and things like that to make a formidable site, but I don’t really know where to start. Flash was just incredibly difficult for me, but it doesn’t seem like it should be.
Has anyone else taught themselves web-design? If so, how did you go about it? Is it just one of those “it takes time” things?
