Going from graphic design to web design can be a tricky transition. While many basic design principles can carry over from print design, logo design, branding, etc, there are a lot of complexities in web design that often deter graphic designers from joining the club. Things like hosting, domains, website tools, responsive design, browser compatibility, etc are all things that print designers aren’t accustomed to worrying about but are none-the-less, essential in web design.

Luckily, me and my guest Emma Kate of EmmaKate.co (web dev mentor to graphic designers) have both transitioned from graphic design to web successfully and did this episode to help prepare those of you in that journey as well! In this chat, we cover a proven 9-step process to help you successfully transition from graphic design to web design.

Josh’s SEO Course

Designing a beautiful website is only half the battle; the rest is getting it found online.

• Learn best SEO practices on how to get your sites better Google rankings
• Become a more confident, valuable web designer with your knowledge of SEO
• Build recurring income by offering ongoing SEO plans

“I took this course with Josh Hall, a known Divi guru, so I could find out what I knew and what I didn’t about SEO. Turns out I was missing a lot of info. This class isn’t just for beginners, either. I’m a solo-preneur, even if I don’t actually begin to offer SEO, I’m learning how to discuss optimization. This course is teaching me the SEO vocabulary I can definitely use to help my clients. Thanks, Josh.”

“Prior to starting this course, I had a grasp of SEO concepts, and even a functional vocabulary to talk with clients about how important SEO is on a website. However, a lot of fundamental elements were missing from what I’ve gathered in knowledge over the years, and this course really ties it up concisely, yet thoroughly. I wanted to join this course to enhance but also advance my knowledge, and it’s done exactly that. From fundamentals to advanced strategies, and a plan/tools to get you there, the comprehensive nature of these modules break powerful learning into manageable pieces.”
