Keeping up with Current Design
By now it is no secret that the web is changing at an incredibly fast pace. Ideas and practices being taught to freshmen in college are completely useless and laughable to the same student as a senior. With all of these new Web Building elements in place, style and design are sure to change.
Technology moves fast. The web is a rapidly evolving universe. At Planned Growth, an important part of our job as front-end developers is keeping up to date and staying close to new tools, trends and workflows. Hundreds of blog posts and articles are published every day, but there is no way you can read all of them.
The truth is, no one can actually keep up with everything happening in the world of design. But the good news is, all of the information is available to anyone at anytime. Essentially, if you want to learn more about web design, get out on the web. There are hundreds of blogs showing examples and explaining things to beginners. Find bloggers you like and subscribe to their feed.
Social Media is a great way to connect with these bloggers, and will also be the fastest way to find more people to follow. By following a few web oriented accounts, you’ll start to get lots of great insight directly in your feed. Twitter is a great source for beginners because each tweet is limited to 140 characters, which means you get straight to the point.
The ideas surrounding web design and the things we can do with them are constantly evolving, and hundreds of blog posts and articles are published every day. There’s no way you can read all of those but you’ll still have to keep up to date. That is why Planned Growth is your go to source when it comes to keeping up with web design. We study the latest fashions and trends and learn how to incorporate them into our workflow. For most Planned Growth techs, web design is not just a job; it’s a hobby. Our techs are always growing their knowledgebase because they live and breathe web design. Their passion to continue to learn and develop allows you to focus on your business.
