Today's video covers an important portion of your website that is often overlooked.  How to set defaults for text, background, headings, menu, and so on.

Although this is a long video in YouTube standards; the whole process takes less than an hour!

That is unbelievable, especially considering it may take that long just to research and "start" contacting graphic designers.


Read past the video for a link to download my pen/paper drawings to get an idea of my thought process.
