Twitter Bootstrap has been around for a few years gaining a lot of momentum. Designers love the simple interface along with the many pre-built JS components. Bootstrap allows any designer to focus on the semantics, without worrying about page resets or rebuilding HTML structure. Bootstrap is naturally responsive with options to create fixed-width layouts, too.
This gallery includes 30 brilliant website templates created using Twitter Bootstrap. Many are free to download while others can be purchased from premium marketplaces. Bootstrap themes are much cheaper than CMS themes because there is no backend. Yet even the free examples are great learning tools.
I’ve been a fan of icon design for years. Much like how a logo represents the tone and personality of a company, an icon represents a program or app. Both make use of a tiny canvas size and often have a lot to say with little space to say it.
Ever since iPhone apps started picking up traction, icon design has improved more and more. With time, designers and developers have been able to practice creating a beautiful, stylish and slick icon that suits the device it’s on, and looks great at high resolution and when it’s a tiny icon on a home screen.
It’s important to mention that it’s remarkably challenging to create an icon that looks good – it can take an extraordinary amount of work and skill to create something that looks simple, and the more complex a design, the more talent is required.
