    Hi kardo. Welcome to the forums.

    Perhaps a book like this might help you: http://www.sitepoint.com/store/the-p...n-2nd-edition/

    Hi,
    It is not a big deal as you have a good command in HTML, CSS, javascript and other languages.I think you should use contrast colors to text or images on which you want user attention, this will help you in making your website attractive but it should not cause a eyestrain to the user. And you can search to know more about your queries.

    I have a similar problem kardo; my websites look very uninteresting when compared to a lot of others.

    You could look at a couple of template websites and see what other people are doing.

    They say people are either artistic or practical and I am in the practical camp!

    On the same par, I have no idea how to choose what colours in a colour scheme to use for what. Say you have a 5 color scheme, what are you meant to use for where?

    It`s all about being imaginative. You either are an artistic person that when sees something sees the thing "adjusted" to look better, or you7 are practical. or none )

    Kardo,

    A good practice is to always be in the look out and see other designs. Maybe keeping a file with inspiration. When I look at a design that I like, I break it into pieces and try to figure out the decisions that the designer made. Over time, you can apply that knowledge to you own designs.
