December 7, 2014 in Freebies

Microsoft is one of the few software companies yet to release a series of official iOS applications. Since mobile app design is so popular it seems like a fantastic idea.

In a recent tutorial I covered the process of designing small buttons for an older iOS6 app interface. This was based off the Microsoft Word UI created by Victor Erixon. It’s a great concept but also somewhat dated in the current realm of flat iOS7-iOS8 interfaces.

36 Inspirational Fine Art Gallery & Museum Websites

by Jake Rocheleau

December 2, 2014 in Designer Showcase

The world of fine art is large and historic crossing borders all around the world. Art galleries and museums have been around for centuries but haven’t always been able to market themselves online. Now that most people in the world have Internet access it’s almost strange to not have a website – and this most certainly includes art museums.

For this gallery I’ve put together 36 websites created for museums and fine art galleries. Most layouts employ a sense of minimalism to put a direct focus on the photographs and page content. It’s not everyday that you’d need to create a new museum website, but it’s good to know what some of the big players are using for their own designs.

November 21, 2014 in Web Design

I’ve found that the most interesting websites often focus around very specific topics. In the case of entertainers, musicians, actors, and performers, their websites are a networking tool for communication and selling their product(s). Anyone working in the entertainment industry should have a usable website offering all the necessities of their talents.

For anyone who needs a bit of inspiration or just wants to check out some great examples look no further than your computer screen. This gallery features an assortment of personal websites for entertainers and musicians from all over the world. Notice how these websites don’t often need a wide assortment of various pages. Showcasing the person’s talents, upcoming shows, bio and press/contact details is enough for a solid foundation.

November 13, 2014 in Freebies

The iPhone 6 and iOS 8 release has created a new environment for app developers. Interface elements are very similar following the flat design scheme but little tidbits have been updated. Also the larger iPhone 6 screen resolution with @2x(and @3x for iPhone Plus) comes out to a whopping 750×1334.
