Here is a download from a workshop I teach on Wordpress
I teach at the Art Institute of California - San Diego and for the past two quarters I have been teaching a workshop in how to use Wordpress. In a forum through AIGA that I participate in a former AI student asked me if I could share the resource so here it is.
This is a good place to start, when I first started using Wordpress, I was clueless and it was daunting. There are so many variables, so I hope this helps anyone interested, in getting started with Wordpress.
I came across this article in the New York Times about the redesign of the famous NY restaurant Tavern on the Green's logo. As is the case many times, the client didn't know exactly what they wanted and the designer (Designer: Nicole M. Hagedorn) went through 17 versions before coming up with a final solution that the client accepted.
I like to show this type of example to my students, since I know that they often get frustrated with me (I usually do know what I am after -- stronger, more unique design solutions) for pushing them to continue to try different design solutions, when they have settled on one to fulfill an assignment. This process is typical in working with clients even though most of us don't enjoy it - it is part of the design process. If you only have one idea and you are married to it, what will you do when the client rejects it?
I posted this previously but feel it is worth revisiting. I feel it applies to any undertaking that is new - be it a new drawing, a new piece of writing, a new film or a new start-up. Thanks for the pep talk Ira - I needed it.
