    Hi to all!

    I was always wondering how do people with little knowledge of design can do a good web design of their pages. When I was creating my website I was trying to learn something to do that but the result was no so good as I wanted and expected.

    Is it possible to do a good design without help of any professionals?
    I couldn't do that, but it is interesting if someone managed to proceed in it himself.

    It takes time to learn - no one becomes a 'professional' after a few dabbling experiments. I've run my own web design business since 1999 and I'm still learning. The world of the Internet is forever evolving and changes in techniques are becoming more frequent. Gone are the days of basic HTML scattered with a few graphics all produced in frames. We now have things like Flex and Display Grid all being added to the CSS framework, not that these a really new, but now supported by almost all browsers. If it's something you really want to do then you need to study and grasp the infrastructure and how it is formed. There's a lot to soak up, but it's not impossible and if you're young with a sharp mind, it shouldn't take too long to grasp what you need to start designing your own site. You don't need to soak it all up, but study the parts that will allow you to make a start.

    Use the 'view page source' in your browser to see how a site is constructed and use the browser console to experiment with the CSS to see how it operates.

    Never give in - keep at it until it clicks and the rewards can be phenomenal.

    ;)

    I have been trying to do it myself as well, but it seems too hard when you don't really a master of web design. And I also need the help of professionals.
    If someone can advise a good UX/ UI designer I will really appreciate it.
    Thanks.

    I was so tired after my unsuccessful attempts to make a good-looking design that I decided to find someone really good at it. I've checked a number of freelance web designers and some agencies. At least I've chosen [removed by admin] They understood my needs without words. By the way, you can find the examples of their works at their website. They also deal with illustrations, it is very important thing, I think, if you want to make your website look unique. I will be happy if you'll find them useful.

    When you want your website to look great and perform well, you should turn to a web designer - a pro whose main focus is making your website user friendly. Good web design isn’t just about being artsy; your site’s UI is what determines whether visitors will stick around and keep coming back. That’s why my company hired a web design agency for our corporative website. It was Spiral Scout. They’ve made a great job! Everyone in the company was satisfied with this website. Here is the link to this agency: https://spiralscout.com/services/web-design
