Designing as a Coder - A Nightmare
Hello, dear LET-fellows,
I am pretty sure that at least some of you will know misery I am currently in. (sounding dramatic is kewl)
Well, I don't got too much problems setting up the server, the CMS, the whole back-end actually.
But when it came to the front-end, I can sit hours trying just to completely throw everything into the trash at the end.
As a budget-limited "one-man-army" I can't "just hire" a designer to do the work, heck, I don't even have a solid concept after a week.
Currently I don't know how to continue. I got the tools, I got the basic idea, I got the will. I even got a tiny bit of skill. But it just won't work...
Can anyone - preferrably someone who has been in a similar situation - recommend me any kind of help?
Please, no 600 page Photoshop mastering eBooks, but also no 2 page "just-do-what-I-do" tutorials, something... agh, I don't know, something that might help. ^^"
Thanks in advance.
