There is a season for all things, and this holds true in the world of web design too. Naturally with the technologies and languages evolving at the rate that they tend to, not to mention the evolution of our own personal skillsets, we find new design doors opening up before us all the time. Given that this is the way of things the time will undoubtedly come, delivered by one of the aforementioned evolutionary paths or be it even some other reason altogether, that we will decide it is time to redesign our website.
It is usually never a comment on how we felt about the previous design that we had, it is simply indicative of our desire to keep things fresh and up to date. Now as you climb aboard the redesign bandwagon, there are many helpful resources, articles, and even a few checklists that are already waiting to assist you scattered throughout the internet. We have decided that not only are we going to round-up all of those handy helpers into one post for easy access, but we are also going to go over a few things that you want to keep in the foreground of your mind, so they do not slip through the cracks of forgetfulness.

It’s been nearly five years now since the redesign vs. realign debate began.
Many designers are still approaching website changes as redesigns, with little thought to whether they should be redesigning or realigning the site for their clients.
In fact, many designers are still a bit confused about which one is appropriate for which projects, or even what the difference really is.
Understanding the difference between redesigning and realigning can result in happier clients who are better reaching their website goals.
There are times when redesigns are appropriate, and there are other times when realignments are appropriate. It all depends on how the client’s current site is working for them, and what their goals are.
Read on to find out more about the differences between redesigning and realigning, and how to determine which one fits your current and future projects.
As a good Brazilian I’m a soccer lover, and as everyone should know I’m also an admirer of good architecture. In this case, as we are getting closer to the World Cup in Africa, I decided to make a collection showing the beautiful stadiums that were built for this event, which is certainly one of the biggest sportis events in the world.
I can say I’m already starting my stock of popcorn and Coca-Cola (and a little beer) to watch the games and of course honor the architecture of the stadiums that should serve as inspiration to us Brazilians for 2014. Many were still unfinished in the photos (taken from the site FIFA ) but they give us a good idea of what we can expect in terms of comfort and technology.
