Hi! This is Simon Allardice and welcome to SharePoint Designer 2010: Branding SharePoint Sites. SharePoint is a powerful platform for making web sites both for internal use and for public-facing web sites. But all of these SharePoint sites begin by using standard templates. And while they're very functional, they can look dull unless we choose otherwise and we choose to customize them. So in this course, you'll see how to take your current Web design skills and change the look and feel of SharePoint 2010 web sites. From basic methods like changing and creating themes to rearranging the layout of pages, working with navigation, applying simple CSS changes, all the way to full custom designs using what are called Master Pages and Page Layouts.
But here is the thing: customizing SharePoint is not just conventional Web design and it's very easy to get frustrated if you don't know your way around SharePoint. So we'll also explore what you really need to know about SharePoint from a Web design perspective. Welcome to SharePoint Designer 2010: Branding SharePoint Sites!
