The Business of WordPress Design using WordPress – Video Three
Hi Gang! In this video we’re going to put together the five essential tools you need to succeed using WordPress.
Fortunately, they are all free or of little cost, so you don’t have to have much money to get started.
The important thing to remember when assembling your own toolkit is the fact that there are no “proper” tools. Rather, much like craftsmen of old, you may have a unique preference for certain tools than other designers or freelancers. That’s OK!Read More
Work environment for web designers? Yes, I know, I know it all sounds totally boring. But come on guys, we all have been there before.
We have all felt exhausted. We have all felt irritated. We have all felt that we just ran out of inspiration. And after all, we ended up leaving the project halfway done.
It all happens even if you have the maddest web design skills. Even if you have decades of experience. Even if you have great amount of knowledge and even if you have the most unique talent.
All of that means nothing, absolutely nothing at all.
If there is something that could kill it all at once.
And today I will talk exactly about that.Read More

Take a few minutes with this video so that we can get to know each other. :-)
It is my goal in 2013 to teach you the Business of Freelance Design. That is to say, how you can make your passion into your livelihood.
Specifically, I’m going to share with you my six years of online experience, helping thousands of customers to monetize their talents and turn their dreams into reality. Freelancers such as yourself are incredibly gifted in design and are very creative, but notoriously weak at maximizing the return on their time invested. We will change that together.Read More
Enough is enough, guys!
Let me set this straight once and for all.
So you have decided to become a web designer, right?
That is just AMAZING!
But did someone recommend you to go to college to do that?
That is just HORRIBLE!
Whoever said it deserves a slap on the wrist!

So, this is where it all gets horribly wrong.
And now let me explain to you why…

Hey James, this week I am working on the most exciting project ever – I am designing a new website for one of the most popular radio stations.
That was the last time I heard anything from my friend.
Now he is spending a big chunk of his time going through a lot of legal actions and a local lawyer has become his best mate.
Well, all just because my friend has been sued by a huge web design and development agency.Read More
Targeting your audience with your design is not only possible, but also recommended. Some might not think it’s important, but I am sure all of you have some favourite websites that you visit from time to time, but because of their good design, you simply can’t stay away from them for long. Those kind of sites are what we are going to talk about today. Why? Because you can have one too if you really want to – all you need is a bit of marketing knowledge, a good strategy and some design skills and you’re pretty much there.
Today we will talk about how to spot your real target audience. This is the first major step in your strategy and the most important. If you fail at this, nothing else will fall into place. Today’s article will also be about usability and web interfaces, but we will get into details further down the road.Read More
People are still debating whether content is king or not.
If you ask me, I totally agree with it and my opinion is based on my own experience. Regardless, whether or not content is king, there is something that is just as important! What is it, you ask?
It is a book’s cover that counts too…
I know, I know, everyone likes to say don’t judge a book by its cover, but how else are you planning to grab someone’s attention other than with a fancy cover?
Obviously, once you have someone’s attention, you can leave the rest to content. It’s all about web design colours and how you manipulate them.
To find out your real opinion of someone, judge the impression you have when you first see a letter from them.
