Image isn't everything. Well, that is except when it comes to digital design and doughnuts.
Digital design is like the sprinkles of the internet. It makes pages look nice. Who wants to look at a plain Jane page? I know I want sprinkles on my doughnuts, and images on my pages.
I joined Ankur and the team at Fedora for a much-requested webinar last week. We discussed how I turned their school page into what you see at JessicaSprague.com. Their support (as well as ours) has been filled with the question...
"You know how they say image is everything, I hate that, and don’t think it’s true, EXCEPT for web design, in which, image actually is everything. What I mean is that in order to put across that credibility that we’re looking for, in order to invite people to trust you as their teacher, you have to be able to show them beautiful things. That is the toughest part, but I’m going to help you along the way.” - Jessica Sprague
Using Fedora's platform, the Bootstrap starter kit, Adobe's Dreamweaver and Photoshop, Screenflow, the reset button, and more, I built the page you now see at JessicaSprague.com. Oh, you cannot forget the tears and sweat and sprinkles.
You can build a school like mine, customize it, and sell your knowledge! You're awesome, and I believe in you!
You can read more over at Fedora's blog. Ashley Hockney did a wonderful writeup about sprinkles and the resources used to build JessicaSprague.com! There's also a link to watch the replay of the webinar. Check out her post Build a Beautiful Online Course Homepage.
I hope you get lots of knowledge from the webinar!
