The task of coding a new website is often repetitive and time-consuming. It takes effort and hard work to build an HTML/CSS layout fitted properly in all browsers. Alternatively the design process is much more fluid to allow for new ideas and thought patterns. If you feel the web development cycle takes a bit too […]
The power of CSS3 design offers unique trends for building custom website interfaces. And with the help of the open source movement, it is now easier than ever to make your own customized layout design. CSS3 user interface kits have become more common and you can find these published within various websites and blog. For […]
It doesn’t seem like the many CSS3 standards are so “new” anymore. Web designers have been implementing these properties into most of the new layouts I run into. Rounded corners and text shadows are commonplace for the modern web.
I want to use this article as a small case study into CSS3 effects. I’ll be examining some big-name websites and how they are building unique web interfaces. The techniques are not exclusive to any single entity – and it’s actually simple to put together some code of your own. But it is my hope these examples can spur new ideas in budding developers.
The popular design network Dribbble has grown substantially in just a few short years. Graphics designers and illustrators from all over the world have flocked onto the web seeking invites. But aside from the exclusivity their layout design has become a prominent factor of the entire branding.
I love the simplistic nature of their gallery-style photo boxes. It matches well with a community of designers excited to share their latest pixels with the world. In this tutorial I’ll go over techniques for constructing a similar design in HTML5 and CSS3. You can build a very similar page structure with just bare-bones essential CSS. Yet when we can utilize new browser-supported properties like box shadows the process becomes much more captivating.
In this post we have compiled some useful jQuery and css3 tutorials. Enjoy!!

Social media junkies on the turn of the year 2004 surely remember Digg. It was the powerhouse of social news, all the techies would flock to Digg on a daily basis. And it’s been through quite a few changes recently with the v4 redesign. However I fondly remember Digg’s classic appeal running under v3 as the most accepted web interface.
Thus I’ve taken the liberty to re-code the entire front page template into HTML5/CSS3! And in this short tutorial I’ll be introducing you to some of my techniques. Additionally I’ve offered the source code completely free to download for your own usage. Much of the design I’ve had to piece together through the Wayback Machine Internet archives.
A while ago we shared 25 great web-design and development books and since this earlier post got a great response (and we’ve read a lot more books since), we’ve now gathered another 25.
In this list you’ll find books about design, theory, development, css, html and a lot more. I hope you enjoy the post!
For Christmas this year, my beautiful wife gave me a copy of The Web Designer’s Idea Book, Volume 2. Obviously, I have been perusing the book, and I am finding that there are tons of awesome web designs to take in. I’m super happy with the gift and I expect that it will prove to be a highly valuable resource throughout 2011, and beyond.
Yet, even just a quick perusal of the book reveals the prevailing influence of Photoshop (or other graphics programs) on the industry at large. Today, the web is full of beautiful, rich and colourful graphics that continuously amaze and impress us in all manner of very legitimate ways. But just because we can include all of this incredible imagery, it doesn’t necessarily follow that we have to. Sometimes, the simple use of colour, shape and typography can create an attractive and elegant design all on its own.
