I am currently studying an I.T degree at uni, which covers a lot of general I.T disciplines, web design, databases, programming etc. Although we get taught technical skills, such as C# and Php, I am at a loss a lot of the time when designing websites.
I never know if there are any best practices I should be following or industry rules I should use when designing a layout or when putting a site together. I was wondering if anyone who works in the industry would be up for sharing some of the web design best practices or top tips they have picked up whilst working as a web designer. It would be great for me to take on board some advice so early in my learning so i get a good foundation for what I am doing and get into good habits when designing, so that I can produce quality work.
Would be great to hear from anyone, really appreciate your time.
