“I have no hard proof, but all great designers I know are great coders too” – Jad Sarout, founder of Yelo Studio
Jad Sarout, founder of Yelo Studio, gave a 3 day workshop at Seeqnce (March 21-23, 2012). The main aim of the workshop was to lay down the basic principles of coding to audience of graphic designers and eventually help attendees transform a design into actual functional web pages.
“You are not a cook if you write cookbooks only”, said Jad.
Using a number of practical examples and exercises, he emphasized the importance of having a fundamental knowledge in how to apply design across multiple screen resolutions and devices.
