The flat metro-style design trend has only been active within the community for a couple of years. The original designs started with Microsoft and have grown in complexity ever since. Specifically I have noticed a lot of designers working with flat CSS3 buttons, links, icons, and other UI features.
I want to dedicate this showcase towards flat website interfaces. The gallery includes 34 examples of the best flat websites. These are host to blogs, businesses, portfolios, and dozens of other styles as well. You can apply flat design techniques onto any layout because the patterns are so basic. Take a look at some of my examples examples and you will pick up new ideas pretty quickly.
Today we are announcing the acquisition of BrillThemes. DesignMag readers have shown a huge amount of interest in WordPress. Articles like this from Forbes say that 17-20% of all visits in the world are hitting WordPress sites. Therefore, we have been actively pursuing an existing product with a good base of themes. We want to be able to provide DesignMag Network readers with downloadable digital content that they can trust. We are looking forward to beefing up the theme count on BrillThemes over the next few months. For now we can give you a preview of the existing themes.
Over the past few years we have published a large set of tutorial focused on web development techniques. Both frontend and backend code samples are always helpful when you are building new projects. And that is reason enough to go back and check out past tutorials for golden nuggets of codes.
Check out the gallery below comprised of 25 past dev tutorials. The topics include HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, and PHP. There are webapps for all types of developers and hopefully some cool techniques worth looking into a bit deeper. Browse over the individual headlines and be sure to let us know your thoughts in the post discussion area.
It’s been 3 years since we’ve mentioned Deposit Photos in one of our posts. Back then, they were a small, but enthusiastic agency which wanted to go after the big names in the industry. And with 1 million stock images made available for download in their first year, things looked promising.
However, in a scenario that we typically see in Sci-Fi movies, this project grew at an impressive rate, reaching 4 million stock images in 2011 and 9 million 6 months ago. Although huge increases like that might be made at the expense of quality, this didn’t happen with Deposit Photos. In fact, it seems to me that these guys actually increased the quality as they added more and more products to their shelves. Speaking of which, can you guys guess how huge is their database now? Well, 12.75 million photos! And that, I tell you, it’s impressive and according to them, they’ve increased the number of stock images by 140% in 2012 alone.
