How to Overcome the Bad Moments of Your Career Like a Boss

Posted in Freelance, Tips, Web Design • Posted on 1 Comment

There are lots of web design resources out there and learning all the skills you need is not a problem anymore – everybody can do it. But some of us (or better said, most of us) encounter the same logistical problems now and then during our freelance careers. Being able to create high quality websites is not enough anymore. Freelancing is a total challenge as you also need to be able to manage yourself, your work and your problems.

Even if most people consider the motivational articles a waste of time, they actually offer solutions to problems more important than color theory, typography or web usability. The inner problems can stop freelancers from finding the right balance between work and personal life and, at some point in time, can even force them to retire or change careers.

Font! The word has a whole lot of science involved with it. Fonts are everywhere and those who don’t understand fonts use Comic Sans!

A point comes in everyone’s life when we want to see our own handwriting in the form of font.

This article will try to dig into two different perspectives of this issue and find a solution in both cases.

Why UX Design is like Your Clothes

Posted in Tips, Usability, Web Design • Posted on 5 Comments

Even if you gave five people the exact same clothes, none of them would wear the  clothes the exact same way. This is because everybody looks at something in their own unique way, this is just a testament to the creativity every person has inside of them. You’re probably thinking to yourself what in the world does this have to do with UX design, correct?

PageLime: A CMS Specifically Made for Web Designers

Posted in Tools, Web Design • Posted on 10 Comments

Picture this: you are building a website and wish to steer clear of the complexity of present day Content Management Systems (due to lack of time and/or other factors). Or, in other words, your website is a rather small entity (that perhaps does not require the collaborative abilities of Wikipedia or the social networking databases of Facebook). In simplest terms, you’re looking for an easy to use and nimble CMS that, though performs all the functions that you want it to, does not talk the geeky lingo.
