This is the second instalment of the ongoing DesignWoop freebies series, a monthly design and development freebie collection.
The free design goodies included in this months round-up feature some quality PSD templates, coded HTML templates, backgrounds and some super nice fonts. The free typeface called ‘Adam’ really caught my eye and was rather quickly download into my font library.
Creating a single page website can be deceptively hard to pull-off. A single page concept is ideal for situations where you may have little content, promoting a product or portfolio page for yourself, the uses are limitless.
The single page designs I have listed here today, make use of some pretty cool combinations of jQuery and CSS3 effects, helping improve the navigation and content discovery on the page.
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.
WordPress provides you with super easy way to mange your blog posts, pages and uploaded media items. There are also loads of fantastic themes available that you can quickly upload and configure to create an elegant portfolio, powered by WordPress.
Today I have collected some really nice grid based WordPress themes, which provide you with a great framework from which to build a portfolio.
This is the first in the series of the monthly design and development freebie collection. I have some super resources in this months collection ranging from HTML templates, PSD files, a Ghost CMS template and a couple of free fonts. The Readium Ghost theme looks fantastic, it is my personal favorite in the collection and unbelievably it is free, kudos to Sven Read and his team.
For a recent project I was looking a jQuery image gallery that could overflow hidden gallery items and display them horizontally outside a grid container.
I thought I would share with you the other handy jQuery image gallery plugins that I stumbled upon and bookmarked for future reference.
I have to confess to being a slight obsessive when it comes to viewing monogram logos, I love the personal and creative ways logo designers are often able to create the monograms using the letters or symbols from the logo type.
Combine the monogram to an ink stamp to use on a business card or stationary it just gets better! Here are 20 beautiful monogram designs that I love and that will hopefully inspire you to create your own.
