    Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks.

    We don't despise it. We hate it, we loathe it, we can't stand it, we have no practical use for it, we wish it would die a painful and torturous death along with whoever gave birth to it...but we don't despise it.

    I don't despise flash, as with most web based technologies, there is a purpose and a use for it...

    But entire sites... No... Kinda like tables... Friends don't let friends design in flash or tables.

    and before warning you should know this:

    - The guy who offered me the job is a friend of my girlfriend.
    - I said I just knew the basics of HTML etc. so they gave me two weeks to create a website, which subject I could choose and they would look at it and rate it as a test. High rating means I get the job.
    - After the test i'll get general info about the companies I have to make a site for and then I get paid for each site I deliver.
    - I already met this guy in real and he gave me alot of explanation and said I didn't have to worry.

    So...
    In the past, I have had a few "friend of a friend" web design jobs. Both of those jobs started with the EXACT situation that you just described. I thought "My friends are reliable. They would never set up a design job that would rip me off or waste my time".....Wrong.

    Both clients gave me a basic idea of what they wanted and gave me a little content to work with. The problems started when I finished half of their website and requested a "checkpoint pay" (I require that the client pays me a portion of the total value of the website as I finish sections of the website).

    In the end, I never heard from those "friends of friends" again.



    This design job looks very sketchy. If you are designing just for the money, then I suggest you find a better client. Otherwise, you could be in a situation like the one I mentioned above.

    I just need some good tutorial sites or info DVD's or something. I'm a quick learner.
    I don't know if you could seriously learn CSS well enough to have a decent-looking layout, if you only know HTML basics. Unless you really work at it, you'll probably be at the level of editing other's templates withing the time limit you have.
