Planning the Look of Your Home Page

Typically, you don’t begin building a website by opening Dreamweaver and laying out pages right away. The first steps to creating a website begin on a piece of paper, or in a graphics-editing application like Macromedia Fireworks. Graphic designers usually sketch out a piece of comprehensive artwork (also known as a "comp") for the website in order to show it to the client and make sure that the initial ideas for the site meet with their client’s approval.
