Web design resources?
#1
If anyone knows any good resources for web DESIGN could you please link me to them? I am really wanting to learn to actually design them. If someone gives me a PSD i can easily make a website out of it, it's just the whole design process that i am terrible with Confused

Thanks in advance,
Jake

Lately I don't waste time with planning it out in photoshop. Most designs are basic enough that you don't need to.

My favorite site for colors and patters in is colourlovers though.

That's a great list. I love Notepad++.

Although I think this is what you want, I could be wrong. I suggest "Learning Web Design" by Jennifer Niederst Robbins. Published by O'Reilly books. I find it quite handy, myself.

Hey,

Here's a few sites that I have bookmarked over the past year.

http://www.reddit.com/r/web_design/
Useful for asking other designers questions!

http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2011/10/...evelopers/
Contains a number of useful tools.

http://www.awcore.com/html/news/14/25-Ti...erators_en
This contains a number of generators that range from colour generators to CSS gradient generators!

http://www.html5rocks.com/en/
Contains information on the latest and greatest HTML5 design practices! Smile

Hope you find these useful!
