by Jake Rocheleau

February 13, 2013 in Designer Showcase

Over the past 10 years there have been hundreds and possibly thousands of new web design blogs launching online. A small handful of these blogs are still online today, and an even smaller number are still publishing great content. As we move into 2013 it seems like a good idea to dig into the design industry and collect some of the best resources for helpful information.

In this gallery I have put together the top 100 online magazines & blogs for web designers, in no particular order. The topics range from web design to Photoshop tutorials, freebies, user experience design, and even web development techniques. I do sincerely hope this gallery may be useful for many years to come these blogs grow in popularity.

In my list of all-time favorite blogs 24 Ways has my top vote. Many of their articles focus on obscure web development techniques which are not handled in depth anywhere else. Think of topics such as character encoding, Bootstrap tutorials, complex CSS3 media queries, and lots of other good ideas. Definitely recommend skimming their headlines because you may be surprised at the high-quality content in their articles.

44 Exhilarating Dark-Themed Website Designs

by Jake Rocheleau

January 17, 2013 in Designer Showcase

I have always loved the dark website layouts when designed properly. These often influence other areas of content within the page as it all must conform to a darker color scheme. Websites who go after this technique are often following a related niche which fits the design style. But don’t feel limited based on your current website!

Personally any website design could be updated to include a more darker-themed layout. I want to use this showcase as an inspiration for web designers looking into dark color schemes. Check out the content on each page which includes text, images, and possibly dynamic widgets. There is a lot to consider within this collection, but I hope these examples may provide a spark of creative energy to web designers everywhere.
