@topdesignmag :) Are You A Web Developer Without Any Graphic Skills? Then Check Out These 25 Gorgeous Website .PSD’s

Writen by Bogdan is the founder of Top Design Magazine.


Creating a website is not an easy thing because it requires a lot of steps; from the planning and all the way to functionality testing, the process of designing and developing a website needs people with various skills. You need a good graphic designer, a good web designer, a talented web developer, a great content writer and also a SEO expert is you want your website to be great. Sure, you can skip some of them but this can cost you a lot in terms of success.

For web developers, coding a website can be a piece of cake if they have all the graphic components but this always means that whenever they want to create something, they are dependent to a web designer. For a company, this issue is solved from the start but if you are a web developer and also a freelancer, then you need to come up with solutions if you want to stick to the deadline. Depending on your budget you can either hire someone to create a design from scratch, either use a template. A .psd template is extremely useful in the following cases: you are a beginner and you want to practice your programming skills but you don’t want to spend time creating the visual stuff; you are a web developer and you don’t have a budget for creating the design; you have a budget but the time is so limited that you can’t afford spending it on the graphical part.

Full article and more PSD’s :)

Whatever your reasons are, a .psd website template can prove to be extremely useful so it will be a good idea to save them in your toolbox. In this article you can see a collection of 25 gorgeous .PSD’s which are ready to be converted into fully functional websites.

Basic Web Design Video Course – Wireframing, Photoshop Tools & Panels, and Designing [Part 1]

Hello everyone, this is Mike and welcome to my Basic Web Design Video Course. In this course I will walk you through the very basic steps on what to do and what to learn before, and during, building a website. You’ll learn all the steps I use including: planning, wireframing, using basic tools and panels in Photoshop, basic HTML and CSS, and after learning these we will apply our knowledge and create our very fist website from scratch.%tutke

For our valuable readers we will be pushing the basics here. So it’s your chance to learn and become a web designer for free. Are you excited? I hope that beginners can follow through, if anything is unclear just reach out to me in the comments section.

I will do my best to walk you through everything slowly and clearly. So let’s get started!

Planning and Wireframing

What is a wireframe?

A wireframe is a visual presentation of how a website’s layout will look when it’s finished. It’s about structuring the overall layout without any graphics, placing the various elements where you believe they will look and work best. Wireframing is a great step to start before jumping on to Photoshop because it allows you to focus on the important components of the website without all the visual clutter of a finished design. Wireframing also saves you time when designing a website because wireframing acts as a sketch, and instead of having to do things more than once in Photoshop, you can just adjust your ‘sketch’ until you’re happy.

Your wireframe should include boxes that represents images, header, footer, sidebars, text blocks, navigation and other content aspects of your website.

You don’t have to worry about drawing them yourself, since there are many wireframing tools available on web.

Web Designing from Evolution to Revolution [Infographic]

Via inspiredm.com
Here’s a nice infographic I came across today, released by Brush Lovers, fine curators of quality photoshop brushes, styles and patterns.

The term “web design” implies a great range of activities such as website planning, website creation, modeling, matching the right elements (fonts, banners, etc), coding, and arranging all pages in such a way that the end result will be a user-friendly and easy-to-use site. This infographic follows the journey of webdesign from its inception to the present days. Enjoy!


Quality Tutorial Designer’s Checklist | langwitches.org

Langwitches Blog

Helping students become quality Tutorial Designers has been on my mind and agenda lately. The reasons are plentiful, from the train of thought “if you can teach it, you know it”, being a vital skill in the 21st century, Alan November’s work “Who owns the Learning?”/ “Digital Learning Farm” to tutorials being an important piece in the self-motivated and self-directed learning of our times.

Teaching, nor creating (digital) tutorials, may come natural to everyone. There are are several skills involved. which are valuable for our students to learn.

  • communication
    not only understanding content and process, but being able to express and communicate them to someone else. The communication can be accomplished in a variety of media.
  • collaboration
    curating all student created tutorials in one place (ex. wiki) will create a hub, where students can search for tutorials of content, that they need a refresher on and  it creates a depository for students in future years to come.
  • writing
    writing a script is an essential part of tutorial design. Tutorial writing could be considered part of the expository writing and technical writing genre
  • vocabulary
    using  specific vocabulary related to the content explained
  • storyboarding
    “Storyboards are graphic organizers in the form of illustrations or images displayed in sequence for the purpose of pre-visualizing”~ Wikipedia
  • digital storytelling
    a tutorial is a special type of story. It requires the “teller” of the story to engage the “listener” via different digital media
  • networking
    tutorials are meant for others to learn from us
  • digital media
    creating, editing, and mixing of a variety of media forms (text, images, audio, video, etc.) and the fluency to work with a variety of media and switch effortless between them
  • empathy
    the ability to understand and share the feelings (ex. not know how to do something or understand) of another >>>  Seguir leyendo “Quality Tutorial Designer’s Checklist | langwitches.org”

Los teléfonos inteligentes están matando la fotografía | socialconsultingmedia.com


Por J.D Rucker

Los teléfonos inteligentes están matando la fotografía  En esta era de dispositivos móviles que pueden hacer casi cualquier cosa que incluso una versión más vieja podía hacer, una cosa que ha sufrido (en mi humilde opinión) es la fotografía. Hay quienes dicen que la abundancia de fotografías que se están adoptando y compartiendo es más que una compensación justa por la calidad baja y la atención al detalle que hizo una vez el  hacer una fotografía y mostrar algo que no requería una batería cargada, pero aun así perdía los maravillosos resultados de una fotografía tomada correctamente, desarrollada y posicionada.

La explosión móvil ha hecho que esto sucediera. Nadie va a negar que estos dispositivos han cambiado la vida de casi todos en el mundo, pero aún así es triste para aquellos de nosotros que fuimos a clases de fotografía, aprendimos a trabajar en un cuarto oscuro, y pasaba horas de fijación de una imagen sin la ayuda de Photoshop . Los niños de hoy pueden pasar toda su vida sin el manejo de un rollo de película.

Spotbros: sobre David, Goliath y las estrategias (moderadamente) provocativas

Como comenté en esta entrada anterior, estoy trabajando con mis amigos de Spotbros en el lanzamiento de su mensajería instantánea segura y social, intentando convertirla en la alternativa a una WhatsApp que es líder de mercado hasta el punto de haberse convertido en genérico conversacional (“te mando un guasap” o incluso “teguasapeo“).

La realidad es la que es: WhatsApp tiene una masa crítica de muchos millones de usuarios, pero es un verdadero desastre en lo que a seguridad serefiere. Pero enfrentarse a un líder de mercado en función de un criterio que, paradójicamente, parece poco apreciado por una base de usuarios, resulta como mínimo complejo. El usuario medio de WhatsApp llega a él por la enorme simplicidad de su proceso de registro y construcción de red, y aparentemente, no tiene ningún tipo de problema en seguir utilizando una herramienta en la que cualquiera puede hacerse pasar por él,  cambiar su status, enviarle mensajes no deseados o interceptar sus conversaciones.

A LIST Apart: For People Who Make Websites

Responsive Comping: Obtaining Signoff without Mockups

If you’re making websites, chances are you’ve given some thought to what constitutes a responsive-friendly design process—and you’ve probably found that adding a mockup for every breakpoint isn’t a sustainable approach. Designing in code sounds like the answer, but you may be mystified at where to begin—or feel unmoored and disoriented at the prospect of giving up the approach you’ve long relied on. Enter responsive comping. This new, mockup-less web design process makes it easy to get that Photoshop monkey off your back, and have a fresh new beginning with your old friend the web browser.

Tablets and smartphones drive e-Commerce in Asia: Visa

SINGAPORE – The growth of smartphones and tablets, along with an improved perception of security is leading the internet to play a significantly bigger role in consumption across Asia, according to a recent study published by Visa.

Tablets and smartphones drive e-Commerce in Asia: Visa

Improved security perception is leading consumers to purchase online, according to Visa

In economies where smartphone and tablet penetration are high, consumers are already showing a tendency of picking up products through their phones or tablets. Of the 8,000 consumers surveyed, four in ten said they browsed products on their phones or tablet device last year. In fact, browsing on mobile phones exceeded 40 per cent in Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore. Hong Kong saw 13 per cent of its online purchases on mobile phones and 11 per cent on tablets.

“The prevalence of smartphones and tablets translates to easier online access for consumers to retailers anytime, anywhere, and we expect to see more people browsing and shopping on-the-go as a result,” said Paul Jung, Visa’s head of e-Commerce solutions for Asia, Central Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Como salir de la burbuja en la que te encerró Google

Muy interesante (y entretenido) el video que publicó la gente de Duck Duck Go (el buscador “libre“), en el cual plantean que ya no existen los resultados regulares en las búsquedas de Google. Por medio de un sistema que tiene en cuenta nuestro perfil de usuario, las páginas que visitamos, nuestros contactos y nuestras interacciones en redes sociales (entre otras miles de variables), Google ofrece resultados únicos y personalizados para cada individuo. La idea no es del todo mala pero… ¿y si uno quiere salir de su propia burbuja? ¿Que nos queda a los curiosos que queremos pensar “fuera de la caja”? La respuesta, la tienen los chicos de Duck Duck Go. ¡Bien por ellos!

How to Choose the Best WordPress Hosting


Two of the most important things for a web developer to consider is the web hosting company they will use and the type of hosting package they will choose. There are a lot of options and unfortunately, not all of them are right for hosting a WordPress website.

WordPress Specifics

There are a few things that are required in order to effectively run WordPress on a web hosting account. However, there are a few specifics that must be adhered to in order to run the latest versions of WordPress.

  • PHP – Version 5.2.4 or greater.
  • MySQL – Version 5.0 or greater.

Most web hosting companies not only support WordPress and its requirements, but there are many that will install the latest version for you on your server as a part of your set-up service at no extra charge.
