There definitely is some great information to keep in mind with your article, however, I find some of it to be a bit out of date (e.g. Mootools and supporting IE6). Also there are great frameworks to allow you to prototype in code instead of creating static designs and then translating it to code, Twitter Bootstrap and Zurb Foundation are two of the most popular. Having Photoshop skills are great, but if you are looking for a much lower barrier to entry, consider using free and open-source software like GIMP (basically Photoshop) and Inkscape (similar to Adobe Illustrator) for your needs. In fact Inkscape's native file output is ".SVG" which is great since HTML5 picked up native support for SVG.

As a designer myself, I have several other additions. - Not making the website responsive and/or adaptive for different devices - Having a separate mobile website (with different or missing content from main website) - Designing too much for aesthetics and forgetting how customer will consume or find info - Using so many plugins that the page load times are unbearable - Using stock templates instead of designing from scratch, the good clients can tell

Hey Jef, glad you found my article helpful. There are many great e-commerce platforms out there to choose from. I find Shopify intuitive and easy to use with great online support. I think organising your productive information into a spreadsheet can have many benefit's regardless of the platform you use. Good luck. If you have any question please ask away:)
