What do I need to learn in order to make fancy article layouts on the web?

I'd like to start a blog for my short pieces of writing. There won't be any unifying topic and in fact I'm really interested in differentiating pieces through the layout of text and incorporation of graphic elements. Jason Santa Maria's Candygram series
and Dustin Curtis's articles
are good examples of the kind of thing I'd like to be able to do.
But these are mostly single page posts--I think I want each of my posts to flow on the same page (in typical blog format). I'm liking what Apple did to kind of fake page breaks on their iPad 3 features page
and what Panic does
with their letterhead backgrounds. The interface and flow of the Edits Quarterly
site is incredible too but I'm guessing that kind of coding is way beyond me.
So: where do I start / what service should I use / what web skills are necessary to achieve these kind of flexible layouts in a blog? I get that this question is sort of "how do I learn to do web design" but maybe there is a more targeted path I can take since I *think* what I'm trying to do is relatively specific. Thanks in advance!
