Some people may find flat web design boring while others totally love it. I find flat design interesting and more user friendly. It puts more emphasis on the content. It’s also very flexible, which is really ideal for responsive web design. If you, like me, love flat design, make sure to check out 40+ Flat Web Design Inspiration. I’m pretty sure you will get goosebumps after seeing several flat designs.
Feeling inspired seeing those designs? Good! Today I will teach you how to design a portfolio landing page- an almost an hour long free video tutorial!Read More
For the last couple of months, flat web design has been really a huge topic on the Web. Up to now, it is steadily dominating the Web. From UI, to the latest portfolio update, icons and even the top web design blogs are now using flat web design, not to mention Microsoft, Android and just recently Apple is going flat too!
So why are so many designers using this style?
Flat design makes things free from distractions, eliminating heavy background images, swirls, grunge that makes everything cluttered. It’s very easy to navigate, since there are no more gradients, drop shadows, glows and bevels. It puts more focus on the text, making everything readable from big screens down to mobile.
Oh, and besides if you want something more than inspiration we have nice flat countdown timer video tutorial created specially for you!
Okay, enough talking. Time to check our collection of flat web design for your inspiration!Read More
If you already know what is a Landing Page and what it is for, I will call you a “Smarty Pants”, but please give me just 58 seconds to explain it to those who don’t really know what it is.
So a Lead Capture Page, Lander or as most of us know it, a Landing Page, usually serves one, single, yet very important purpose. It is designed to be one large Call to Action.
Usually it’s a single web page and contains very focused and deliberate sales copy with Call to Actions throughout.
Brilliant! I managed to explain it in less than 58 seconds.
Now that you know what a Landing Page is, I’m going to show you how to create, and launch, your own.
What’s more exciting is that you do not need to be a coding guru or an über cool designer.
It’s just that simple – You and this ultimate guide.Read More
