    I went to college to study web design.I graduated and I am having trouble
    creating “professional” web sites. I understand many things such as HTML,
    CSS, Flash, Photoshop, layouts, active/pass white,good navitaion etc. The
    hardest thing in my case is defining the look and feel of web sites. I
    never thought it be so hard designing a web sites, but when it comes to me
    it is. Most of my web sites look bland I’ve redone them each at least 3
    times and still am trying to make them “feel” better.

    Some times it is best to just surf around and see what others are doing
    that interest you.

    Just curious.

    Informative video! I ended up finding an AMAZING web design company after I
    had tried time and time again to create a professional website for my
    business. I owe all my recent success to the company New Web Design! I
    recommend them to every person who could use a little assistance with web
    design, marketing or print. I’ve had several disappointments in the web
    design world before but New Web Design definitely swayed me :-) They’re
    honest go-getters with great delivery! Good Luck! Deborah D
