You do not need to be well versed in WordPress or be a software developer to create your WordPress powered portfolio site. A majority of WordPress powered themes nowadays allow you to quickly build, customise and manage your portfolio and blog items all without needing to touch a line of code.
Today I wanted to get together a great collection of the latest photography focused themes. When selecting these themes I specifically looked for a clear, well structured design with a strong focus on how the images are presented on both web and mobile screens.
The April edition of the ongoing DesignWoop freebies series features a diverse range of really cool design goodies. This month I have found some really nice icons which I already made use of in a project and some pretty cool free PSD’s which are super helpful for a small side project or quick mockup. Download, share & enjoy!

All it requires is a bit of patience and perseverance! By following these guides you can learn some amazing effects with just a few weeks of study and practice.
As the saying goes, you only get one chance to make a first impression. Your landing page may be the first thing potential customers encounter when they hear about you, your company or your product, and so it’s absolutely critical. This is especially true if you’re a startup or a small business, where often you don’t get a second chance.
Some companies do a truly phenomenal job with their landing pages. A landing page that’s been crafted beautifully, is uncluttered and that helps to show off the product or service well can reflect extremely well on the brand that it’s for. If you put all of your attention and focus into the product, but not into the landing page, then it can be hard to get the sales that you may otherwise deserve.
I wanted to write a post that showcased some of my favourite fresh, interesting and bold landing page designs that I think do a great job at putting the product in the spotlight. All of these examples make use of beautiful, creative design to show off the product, and I hope that this collection gives you some ideas around improvements you could make to your own landing pages. If you know of any other examples of stylish, bold and creative landing page designs, I’d love to hear about them in the comments section below.
A surge of popular mobile applications have built greater demand from audiences around the world. This leaves a giant chasm of work for the most talented interface designers. But in order to design relatable interfaces you need to know what people are looking for – and more importantly, how people interact with their smartphone or tablet device.
This gallery includes 36 outstanding and recent examples of iOS user interface mockups. iPhone applications are still a primary focus of designers and developers. But the iPad has come up quickly with a lot of games and digital suites released on both devices. If you need some creative iOS-styled UI inspiration scan over the examples listed below.
In an age of baked in complex option panels and shortcodes, it is rather refreshing to see that simplistic, beautifully designed WordPress themes are still being made. Today I have collected some of favourite freshly released WordPress themes that have a keen focus on minimal, clean design and simplistic functionality.
This is the third collection of the ongoing DesignWoop freebies series, a monthly design and development freebie collection.
Scalable images have become a lot more popular in recent years. As modern browsers slowly accept the notion of SVG images we can see many techniques being released out on the web. These range from scalable responsive logos to animated line drawings – all through the use of dynamically-generated images.
This collection of tutorials should be more than enough to get you all caught up to speed with the latest trends. Even if you know absolutely nothing about SVG images or how they’re created, these articles should provide insight along with a few industry tips & tricks. SVG resources appear to be a growing solution amongst web designers. Take a look over this showcase to understand what all the fuss is about.
When Google first released their web browser into the public it caught attention like overplayed news stories. Most web developers were previously using Firefox and although many still do prefer Mozilla, Google has offered up some big competition. Chrome includes many similar features along with powerful browser extensions like Firefox. Developers and designers can benefit from toying with these extensions and sticking them into a daily workflow.
This gallery includes 30 free and powerful browser extensions for Google Chrome. Many are focused on design patterns while others relate to frontend or backend web development. Plus the Chrome Web Store is always filling up with new extensions that you can test out. If you love Chrome but haven’t dabbled much into extensions I would highly recommend trying any of the resources from this collection.
