“I have a BFA in graphic design and graduated 3 years ago with an Associate’s in Web Development.
I have worked in the graphic design field as a freelancer for about 5 years, but now want to switch over to web development or design.
It sounds like you already have some skills that can be put into use, given your background in graphic design.
- Lynda: I mention Lynda because not only do they have web development classes, they also have a ton of courses on web design. Seeing that you have a background in design, this may be something more up your alley. Click here to get a free week at Lynda.com.
- CSS-Tricks: This is an amazing, comprehensive blog about…you guessed it, CSS! CSS-Tricks is completely free to read. However, they also have a members-only area ($) which has more tutorials and even videos.
Another option you may want to consider is a more comprehensive, in-depth, course—like an online coding bootcamp. Check out this recent article I wrote, which covers eight of them in-depth. Out of the eight I talk about, look into Bloc, Thinkful, Skillcrush, and Designlab.
Designlab, as the name suggests, is more about design rather than development. But this may be something that interests you since you are coming from a design background. They have courses that cover user experience, branding, and more. (And from the people I have spoken with who have done Designlab courses, they really enjoyed it!)
Hope this helps!
