    1. Great video. I’m a seasoned developer who really needs to up my design skills once and for all. I took advantage of your Skillshare link to sign up for a year. Do you have any design videos recommendations for videos that would be useful for developers?

  1. Are there awards for teachers like Kevin?!? I nominate him for every category πŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎπŸ‘πŸΎ

  2. … And you look your design and know that “it can look better” (The polite way to tell) = Your design can give nightmares to whoever, are those colors for a serious webpage or it is for a clown webpage, you should be condemned to injure the eyes of internet users.

  3. Kevin, you have made me an infinitely better designer. If I have a CSS question, I don’t scour the documentation. I pull up YouTube and find a video you’ve created that helps me. You haven’t let me down yet! So grateful!

  4. As you were talking about line length it finally clicked why I had such a hard time reading text books in school 20ish years ago. I sometimes had to use my fingers or a ruler to keep track of which line I was on and needed to move to next. Thanks for all the great tips as always

  5. Now we need “web development for designers”
    But honestly, as a design student, your videos helped me a lot at making sense of CSS. You do an amazing job at explaining how things work.

  6. Kelvin Powell i love you so much. Indeed you know how your design look. Very funny
