I don’t want to view your article in a 20 section side-show. I’d like to just view the article in one page, thanks. At the very least, give me the option.
One site that is bad at this is REAL Simple. Ironic? I thought so. Great magazine, terrible site design… even the homepage is overly cluttered and overwhelming. Almost every article I clicked on turned out in side-show format, and I quickly lost interest. It just takes too long and too many clicks to get through a simple 1 or 2 page article in slide-show format.
I am liking their Pinterest boards though. Good stuff there.
I’m finally getting something together for thebucks.org, and I found myself very lost in the world of fonts. Google does it again! I love their Fonts. It’s a fun interface to play through and experiment with, and it was super easy when I finally settled on the font I wanted to use.
I got the design from another favorite site to visit and browse through for ideas: Free CSS Templates This is the first time I took one of their designs and just used the thing as is. Sometimes, it’s just an idea here or there. Fantastic site.
Colors play a huge role in web design, graphics design, crafting, scrapbooking…
Here are two sites I’ve found and love to use again and again.
Put in a color and find all the colors that go with it. You can even view sample sites with the chosen color scheme. Brilliant tool!
Upload an image (logo? snapshot of a dress that inspires you?), and it will create a couple of simple color schemes based on it.
