Hello my dear 1stwebdesigner loyal readers, new visitors, all who enjoy whatever a hell I am trying to do here!! I’ve been promising for a long time, I will create such posts in newsletter format and I definitely will, but now 1stwebdesigner also got into big storm of changes.
So what has been changing? Maybe you noticed I haven’t posted anything for 2 weeks and there are many new and promising guest writers in our blog? To be exact now we are trying to manage like 20–30 guest authors, teach them, discuss details and finally create some kind of automated way how to submit, review and publish articles in meantime not loosing article quality.Read More
I received a letter from Jacob Gube few days ago where he informed me about new resource and tutorials website DesignInstruct he started with his brother. Of course I immediately headed to their new site and did my own research, evaluated design and it was worth it – layout is professionally designed, starting team is already working and first two tutorials are extremely beautiful!
It’s not easy to stand out from overflowed crowd even with quality website and original idea, I am curious how blogosphere will change in future actually.Read More

If you need to complete quick project and you are ready to spend some money for it, this premium WordPress portfolio theme showcase will definitely interest you! This is follow-up article to previous one about free themes, check it out – 24 Free Portfolio And Photo Gallery WordPress Themes.
I think it’s okay to spend few bucks for great theme with full support and many features for fast projects. I just bought one as well, just because I needed to set up site rapidly fast, but I had specific requirements for that blog. I visited several premium theme sites and found good looking theme I was happy with in 30 minutes.Read More
Oh, this is a bit different collection I hope, because I couldn’t find really similar articles like this one. I did very big research through youtube, delicious, good-tutorials, vimeo, google and many more websites to find interesting Photoshop, little coding and tips video tutorials. What’s great with video tutorials? – you can see every mouse click and in the same time you hear author’s voice explaining things to you verbaly. In my opinion this is the fastest and the best way how to learn new techniques.Read More
I got one fresh, small project, where I needed small portfolio site for a friend. It got me thinking and lead to research what WordPress can offer to me, with its great CMS platform. I was a little bit surprised, because I got even better results than I expected- theres was a plenty of interesting portfolio, photo gallery themes, where homepage was static, but still you can tie together static with dynamic content and add blog as well. Maybe it’s nothing new or signifunt for most of you, but I wasn’t aware there is possible to get such theme so easily, where of course my friend could manually change it’s content without touching or learning any code knowledge.Read More
I kind of got lost a little bit in creating Monthly Deviantart web interface features, but at least I loved to do research and get inspired every month, and since our blog is focused mainly on web design, I am sure you enjoy it as well. Let’s get started, get inspired and watch how trends are slowly changing from month to month.

I’ve always been using Firefox browser, I mean already for 5–6 years and never thought I would want to choose something else. Firefox is great browser and what makes it so great is all those thousands of plugins you download freely. You can find now plugin for almost everything you could ever think of – there is only one big downside. Firefox is much slower than Chrome and actually eat’s more of computer’s CPU than other browsers.
I have a friend who suggested to try Chrome again and I thought I will give it a try – now I will check how much and how good extensions Chrome has and is it enough to transfer now???Read More
