10 tips for print designers moving to the web

01 Get to grips with pixels
While you may be used to designing by picas, millimetres and points, work on the web is measured in pixels only. The first rule for any designer moving from print to the web is to ditch your understanding of measurements; online, nothing is fixed.

02 Don't expect uniform design
The toughest web trait for print designers to understand is the uncontrollable aspect of your finished design: most users will have screens of at least 1024x768 pixels, although many of them may have smaller resolutions. This makes it safest to subscribe to 800x600 designs.
