7 Best Web-Design Sites
Alot of people have been asking me for good web-design sites for tutorials, web trends and general design related discussion.
So I made a list of not only ‘good’ websites but THE 7 BEST WEB-DESIGN SITES EVER!
To be honest, they’re probably not the best ever but they’re some of my favourites and they’re pretty darn good.
Here we go..
The Tuts+ family has a variety of interrelated tutorial websites, from web design, development, photoshop, illustration, audio editing, flash and anything else you can think of to do with multimedia.
They have literally thousand of tutorials, which great but also very daunting. So I’ve complied a beginner’s best-of to teach you the basics of each area.
- Photoshop Text Effects
- Make A Website: Mock-Up
- Making A Website: PSD to HTML
- How To Make A WordPress Theme
Not only is it one of the more beautiful sites on this list but also one of the most informative in terms of current web practices and trends.
It doesn’t have as many tutorials but more focuses on product reviews and wrap-ups.
Maybe not that extreme but still pretty exhilarating.
I find browsing through the thousands of palettes and colours available on this site helps spark design ideas.
4. CSS Tricks
Another extremely beautiful website, Viget (Latin for ‘flourish’) is a web marketing firm from Washington DC.
They do everything from design, development, search engine optimisation, application development and social media utilisation.
Their ‘Inspire’ blog, run by their design department, has loads of useful tutorials and articles about their design processes.
6. CSS Remix
This site is slightly different to the other websites on this list because it doesn’t actually have any original content.
Why would I want to go to a website without anything original?
I’m glad you asked. CSS Remix collects the hottest new websites and links them together in a gallery.
It doesn’t anaylse or manipulate the data in anyway, it just shows you what you want without the surrounding chatter.
7. A List Apart
I actually hesitate putting this on the list because it’s perhaps not as interesting as the others.
Basically A List Apart discusses web and design standards on a theoretical level.
If, like me, you get excited about the cross-browser capabilities of CSS3 and HTML5 or the increasing prevalence of grid layouts as opposed to tabled themes, then yes, by all means read your little heart out but otherwise, it’s not recommended.
