At the age of 15 I started with this web design stuff. Here I am, almost 7 years later and I wish I knew a lot more about this field rather than learning just by my own mistakes. But you don’t have to pass through all of this, dear Padawan.
There are a few particularities in our field that unless you have a geek dad you would never think about… So if you are aware about what you need to do you can have a much simpler, more productive, and happier freelance life.
The crazy thing is that success is not (just) about coding skills alone. You have to build a whole environment to compensate the instability that you probably won’t face in a regular job.
Finally, here we’ll see a few tips for novice and experienced freelancers, ranging from controlling your finances to networking. And I really want to hear your advice and tips after reading this, because we always have something to share, right?
So, let’s rock!Read More
How is life, love birds? Usually, I tend to get into the history of things before I start discussing the actual topic but I won’t follow that tradition this time because I know you will be more interested in what I have in store for you for Valentine’s Day instead of the history of Valentine’s Day! So, without much discussion, let us get down to the real purpose. Bookmark this article as it will prove to be helpful over and over in the coming years. Whenever you want valentine’s day wallpapers, fonts or infographics then you will know that you have something useful in your bookmarks.Read More
The success of your website depends partly on its presentation. People in the field of designing have little problem, to none at all, dealing with this since most of their works are visual. One way of presenting photographs, illustrations, image manipulations, and other visuals in a very cool way is through an image gallery. But making one for your website does not come free, well there are free plugins for it but they’re not on par with premium ones. It’s a good thing that TN3Gallery is offering 5 licenses for TN3Gallery Pro! Say goodbye to the horrors of coding!Read More
You are probably one of those who chose web design because you are passionate about it; or not. You may have chosen it because your father owned a design company and he wanted to integrate you into it. Or because you started off as a content writer and after writing on design topics for two years you decided to give it a try. Regardless of where you come from, pretty much all of us head the same way: either work for a company or freelance – there is not that much else out there.Read More
Today it is not a common occurrence to have powerful nations across the globe to act on a single issue, outside of war and relief for a tragedy stricken country of course. However, there seems to be a need to add countering counterfeiting goods and enforcing copyrights online of course. This past month there was nothing more popular Stateside on the net than SOPA and PIPA. These bills were of course met with a great backlash to the U.S. House and Senate, even more so for those that originally proposed them. However, it is quite troubling to find out that these bills are actually just a small fraction of the global government attempt at stopping online piracy. Well since the introduction is over, let’s put no more time rambling in the introduction. The point of the article is ACTA(Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement), and by the end hopefully you will be more informed on this matter.Read More
