Hello ! I am 13 years old… (yes, yes…) and i am really experienced with html and some basic css. I am asking for your help. I already watched tons of tutorials and really want to improve my skills as a web designer and i soooo happy that i found Envato. At this moment i earned only $235 from web design and i really feel i can do more. My question(s) for you is(are): How do you learned ? How it was for you at the very begining ? Where do you learned from (especially CSS :( ) ? What should i learn now? I still belive in my dream. Even if some of you will think i am too young. Belive me, i am not as noob as you may think. Hope you can help me out guys :stress:

Hey there.

You’ve come the to right place. The envato tutorial network is a great place to get started with sites like webdesign.tutsplus.com. Once you’ve picked up the basics you should head over to Lynda.com (sorry if I’m not allowed to mention them mods) and progress from there. You should also check out some of the files the tutorials marketplace has to offer.

Now you have your dream, follow it.

Since you already found the envato network http://net.tutsplus.com/ , http://webdesign.tutsplus.com/ and http://wp.tutsplus.com/ are pretty good starting points.

Edit: Got beaten to it.

You “next objective” should be to improve your css as much as you can then start js, then using jQuery with it … After that move on to php and Wordpress. The world if your oyster.

Oh and no problem, happy to help.

Post some of your work here. I’m curious to see how experienced you are.

Also, the Rockable books are pretty good for getting the basics of HTML5 , CSS, JavaScript, etc…

I was 12 when I started.

Age is not a problem, just keep learning. I’d suggest first trying it out on crowdsourcing (Even if it’s the worst thing to do, crowdsourcing as it is now is bad.) and build up experience, then switch to a more ‘professional’ environment.

Dribbble – the way to go. Why? Looking at gorgeous and beautiful design sets your mind to do such designs, unconsicously you’ll do it too, atleast..you’ll try to!

But the key is really keep practicing. More people learn fast, others learn really slow…you’ll find your way anyways.

PS: My past 4 years were spent with 6-7 hours of sleep/night or even less..the rest of the time would be learning about everything I could, so I was on turbo mode. (I kind of only got into web design ~2 years ago, 4 years into design.)

Takes a lot of effort and dedications, that’s for sure.

Good luck.

Reading is just as important as doing something practical. Start a personal project and try to do it the best you can. All eventual problems you will resolve and research will make you more experienced.
