As a designer and developer, I’m always trying to find the best possible tools to do my job and to have fun with it. I’m both a PC and Mac user, Notepad, Coda, Textmate, Dreamweaver, Komodo and Aptana are some of the many editors I’ve tried but none of those made an impact as big as Sublime Text.
Although it is still in beta, Sublime Text is in my opinion the best text/code editor in the market which is available for Windows, OS X and Linux. There is nothing like trying and seeing for yourself but its features, aesthetic, usability and price (although it has an unlimited trial at the moment) made me want to write about it.
“Sublime Text is a sophisticated text editor for code, html and prose. You’ll love the slick user interface and extraordinary features.”Read More
The times when the Web was static are history. Static HTML sites still have their place on the Web but the majority of sites are database-driven dynamic Web platforms that manage content, e-commerce, customer relations, etc. If a designer wants to stay current, he or she needs to be able to design both static and dynamic sites. However, as I have noticed, some designers I know have really hard times when they have to switch from static HTML sites to dynamic ones (blogs, CMS).
Designing static HTML sites is different from designing dynamic sites for sure but is it really that different and that complicated? And if it is, what can one do to overcome it?
CMS are not a new field for a Web designer anymore and it is a safe bet that they will always have a hefty share on the Web design market. Although there are many similarities in designing a static site and a CMS, there are certainly differences as well. To me, designing a CMS is easier than designing a static site but I do feel that both require a different skill set.Read More

Expensive, cheap, grand or microscopic – traveling is a life-changing experience for many (including me) and you got to admit that! Mother nature tends to push you towards that inward realization that might leave you in admiration. Although traveling cannot be done virtually, web designers have walked that extra mile that has resulted into beautiful travel websites. Not only do they save us precious time, but also they pump our desires for our travel destinations.Read More
After writing about the Defensive Web Design approach a few weeks ago, I thought of presenting you with another type of approach, called Responsive Web Design, and the challenges a designer encounters throughout the working process of a product developed with these considerations.
Responsive Web Design is another important concept which can be called “planning”, but it has a name of its own because it is widely used nowadays. A few years back we didn’t need to think about mobile phones, tablets and different screens, because there were not too many of them – or not at all. Well, the IT world has changed since then and now there are a bunch of screen sizes and platforms designers need to deliver for. Responsive Web Design is the concept of a website which should adapt to fit any device that chooses to display it. Not only mobile devices, but also stationery computers and tablets.Read More
