Horizontal layouts of all kinds have intrigued me ever since I found out you could do that. I don't know exactly why I'm fascinated with them... maybe it's just my inner rebel talking. Whatever the reason, I'm just about ready to declare vertical...
When it's going well, design is a pleasure. But we all know what it's like to experience a bad day: nothing works the way it should, colors clash, type mumbles, the message is lost altogether. It's worth remembering that everyone has their bad...
Welcome, friends, to WebdesignerDepot's first monthly WordPress plugin roundup of 2014. If there's one word that I would use to describe the WordPress community, it's this: huge. It should come as no surprise, then, that there are plugins...
I’m honestly a bit wary of making a simple, flat declaration that “x is the best program for y”; real life is usually trickier than that. As a guy who tries out new software for fun (I’m a riot at parties), I can tell you from painful and often...
Welcome, friends, to WebdesignerDepot's first monthly WordPress plugin roundup. (Try saying that out loud really fast a few times!) If there's one word that I would use to describe the WordPress community, it's this: huge. It should come...
Let me start by saying this, I will not be including any point-and-click design tools in this list (think Adobe Edge Reflow). The reason is simple enough, I believe that they’re bad for everyone; designers, clients, coders… everyone suffers....
Ask the average person who’s ever heard about these new fangled “computer” things which kind of computer is best for design, and you’ll probably get an answer like this: “Well, my cousin does Photoshop, and he says that Macs are the...

Recently, a friend suggested that I write an analysis of news websites: what they're doing right, and what they're doing wrong. He suggested that the online news experience was too backward, and maybe a bit boring, and figured that they could...
The power of a good visual isn’t just a scientifically well-documented phenomenon; it’s the whole reason our industry exists. Indeed, our existence as a species is largely defined by our sense of sight. What we see, and how we interpret...
Let’s start with an observation: I love me some frameworks. As an alternative to completely reinventing the wheel, or styling a button from scratch, again, it’s hard to beat having an all-in-one solution to your basic HTML/CSS/JavaScript...
Bootstrap is by no means the only HTML/CSS interface framework out there, but I think it’s safe to say that it changed the game. This kitchen-sink-included pile of code has made the design and development of many an app (and website) a lot easier,...
I ought to know a lot about charities and non-profit organizations. My parents are career missionaries; and I grew up in an environment where everyone I knew was dedicated to improving the lives of others. My family moved around a bit, and I spent...
Every time we begin a web design project, we do research. We research our clients, their customers, the website’s target audience, and the competition. Throughout our careers, we research new trends, techniques, tools, and other designers....
