Examples of Big Images in Web Design | webdesignledger.com


by 

In 2012 we could see the growth of the trend of big images in web design. Throughout the year we could see more and more big and beautiful images appearing in nice and clean designs. If you check out our Best of Web Design in 2012 list you will notice that this trend was quiet strong in 2012. Since we believe that the big images trend will stay strong in 2013, and also because we believe that images can give a lot of personality and style to a design, we decided to gather a list of fresh examples of sites taking advantage of beautiful images. From big thumbnails to huge background photography, you will find a lot of great examples here. Enjoy!

Web Development: Don’t Just Keep Up With Everyone Else

As web developers, it is paramount that we educate ourselves on the latest techniques, trends, software, and coding. If you don’t, you will not achieve being an in demand designer/developer. Your skills will fall behind, and it will reflect in the websites you build. As much as we all like to think we are in some big happy family of designers and developers, we are all competing with each other. Just keeping up is what everyone else is doing, so how do we get ahead?

Blogs, Blogs, and More Blogs!

Obviously, there is a ton to read online about the latest and greatest techniques. If you looked at the RSS feeds we all subscribe to, it is probably a good bet that most of us have quite a few in common, like: onextrapixel.com, webdesignerdepot.com, css-tricks.com, net.tutsplus.com, sixrevisions.com, and smashingmagazine.com. If not in your RSS reader, then maybe you just visit them occasionally. They are all a great source of information, but what about the lesser known blogs? The ones you have never heard about, being written by people like you.

Blogs, Blogs, and More Blogs

There are a lot of great tutorials written by people in the web development trenches that don’t get any recognition. How do you get to them or find them though? Easy, just go to the blogs you normally visit, and start clicking on their links in the comment sections. You will be amazed by the quality of tutorials, tips, and general articles written by people you don’t know yet. Don’t just stay focused on the most popular blogs, because everyone else is already doing that. We want to get ahead of them, remember?

Starting your own development blog is also a great way to step it up a notch. Writing your own tutorials will make you not only better at communicating, but give you a better grasp of what you are trying to get across to the reader. It’s hard work for sure, but you will find you are more in tune with what is changing, what is new, and start hunting for things people might not know about. I know I have learned a lot just by doing research for topics to write about on my own blog. Find something you don’t know how to do, learn it, and then write about it. Others might enjoy your article, and you will possibly have gained a skill that puts you slightly ahead of the people you are going up against.

Blogs Are Good, Books Are Great

You say you read tons of blogs already? Great! Now go out and get some books. The web usually only goes so far in teaching you something. Mostly it’s what we need to know right now, or how to do a specific thing. What will set you apart from the next web developer/designer, is a more in-depth know how of what you are doing. Once you have read one on a specific subject, go and get another because you can never know too much. Personally, when I got interested in learning jQuery, I bought 3 books: a reference guide for quick look ups, a book on the basics of JavaScript, and one specific to jQuery. Yes there are great tutorials online, but books are better for the general foundation on what you are trying to learn.

A book also offers something that can be hard to do on the web – a place to take notes, and quickly reference them. Go buy a bunch of post-its, and mark the pages that contain information that is important to you. Don’t forget to write the main topic on the post-it, otherwise you will have a mess on your hands. If you don’t want to do that, fold the corners and heck, write all over the book (assuming it’s yours). By the time you are done with the book, you have all the important parts marked!

Don’t Be a Freeloader, Do It Yourself

Most of us can agree that JavaScript libraries are great, right? jQuery’s motto is “Do more, write less,” and who doesn’t want that? In fact, there are so many plug-ins out there that do what we want, that it almost seems like there isn’t any real point in actually learning it. Just drop in the script, change a parameter, and done! Isn’t that just awesome? It is if you are in a crunch, but we are talking about learning, and how to get better at what we do. Next time you see something that you want to use…don’t.
