Coding for Designers

We understand that as a designer, you may not want to code. You may assume coding is too hard, or think it’s just not your cup of tea. But knowing how to code can be very empowering to designers. Let us demystify HTML/CSS so you can see that getting started is easy and coding can be fun to learn. You can do this!

Our goal is to show you the essentials of HTML and CSS code in a practical way so you can start writing and editing code right away. We don't want to bog you down with every tiny coding detail, but instead will focus on the concepts that will be useful for doing things a designer would want to do with code, such as wireframing up a design concept.

Even if you don’t want to become a coder, becoming familiar with how webpages are built will allow you to better converse with programmers who translate your designs into code.

Check out the page you'll learn how to create in this seminar, even if you did not already know any HTML before! (Be sure to resize the window to see the page change.)

Join us for a 2-hour lecture-style seminar, in which you’ll learn how to:

  • Mark up (label) text and image content with HTML.
  • Style that content with CSS (Cascading Style Sheets).
  • Explore and use web fonts.
  • Use Bootstrap to wireframe an elegantly simple responsive page that adapts to mobile, tablet and desktop.

HTML and CSS have become the standard language of technology. It’s becoming harder to get by without knowing them. They are the basic building blocks of all websites, eBooks and even some apps. From exploring typography, to wireframing responsive designs that adapt to different size screens, being able to do a bit of coding will make you more marketable and help you create better designs. We look forward to seeing you!

Why Train With Noble?

26 Years of Experience

Noble Desktop has been teaching computer graphics and web development since 1991. In all those years we have perfected the craft of teaching. If students get hung up on any issue, we tweak the class to make it work better. Every instructor uses the same time-tested curriculum we have developed. Ask around: Noble Desktop has a stellar reputation for exceptional computer graphics training.


Our Teaching Method is Better

We don't ask you to simply "follow along," copying what the instructor does. Instead we ask you to focus 100% attention on the lesson at hand. Only after the lesson do you then put into practice what you have learned by working on a computer with our step-by-step workbooks. This "learn, then practice" method results in the student learning and retaining much more than traditional "follow along" classes.


We Wrote the Book Ourselves

Most of our classes include a custom training workbook written by our top instructors. Take it home with you: with step-by-step exercises and power-user keyboard shortcut guides, it’s like having a refresher course right on your desk. We wrote the book ourselves because we couldn't find any book that was good enough. Now our books are being used by other schools and training centers worldwide.


We Provide Computers, Mac or PC

Since when did training centers expect you to "bring a laptop"? Noble Desktop has always had classrooms full of computers, Mac and PC. Each computer is loaded with software and has a 19-inch monitor. The next time you are asked to "bring a laptop," ask why you aren't being provided a computer. Noble Desktop always has up-to-date equipment in our state-of-the-art classrooms.


Not Just Anyone Can Teach

All our instructors are working professionals who bring on-the-job experience to the classroom. But we don't just let anyone teach a course. How many experts do you know who can't teach? We've learned to audition and test our instructors. Only after they have been through our screening process will they be put in front of students. And they are required to use our time-tested curriculum, assuring a positive learning experience for all our students. Read our instructor bios.


Money-Back Guarantee

We’re the only school to offer an unconditional money-back guarantee. If you don’t absolutely LOVE your class, we’ll give you a full refund! Compare that to other "schools" that have a no-refund policy. Is that even legal? It certainly isn't right. At Noble we treat our students with respect and common sense.


We Are NY State-Licensed, and Adobe Authorized

When looking at a computer training school, check to see if they are NY State-licensed. Any school in New York should be licensed by law. Noble Desktop follows state-issued guidelines for curriculum development and teacher licensing. Adobe Authorized means our instructors have passed the rigorous Adobe Certification Exam, and that we follow Adobe's quality-control standards.


Our Students Love Us! 2100+ Testimonials and Counting

We offer our guarantee because we think we’re the best—but don’t take our word for it. Ask more than 2100 industry professionals who have enjoyed our classes and are putting what they learned to use on the job. Read their testimonials.
