Design for Non-Designers: Graphics

I am not a designer. I don’t claim to be capable of creating good design and I wouldn’t even claim that I have particularly good taste in design.

In this project, I will be documenting a simple experiment to answer one question: can I create a site and make it profitable, if my own involvement is basically limited to “throwing money at it”?

Read on to see how I’ll kick this project off and why.
