Two Web Design/Development Blogs for Your Consideration

August 20th, 2010 27 Comments

Continuing a Friday tradition, today I’m sharing a couple web design blog that you’ll find useful, Smashing Magazine and 1stwebdesigner.

Smashing Magazine (@smashingmag)
First suggested to me by Rich (@rmanalan), Smashing has tons of resources for web designers/developers, ranging from operational stuff like how to work with clients to free-to-use fonts and icon packs to how-to tutorials.

Here are a couple sample posts I liked recently:

30 New Free High-Quality Fonts

Beautiful Examples of Transparent Screen Trick Photos

I especially appreciate that they publish entire posts (vs. excerpts) to their feed, especially since they do a lot of long posts with graphics, and the Related Posts are very useful if you find something that interests you.

1stwebdesigner (@1stwebdesigner)
Not sure how I found this one. Its focus is on tutorials (e.g. HTML, CSS, Javascript, Photoshop, WordPress, Flash) and resources (e.g. fonts, icons, photography) for web developers, including the occasional post on general software, business how-to or inspirational post.

Here are a few I liked recently:

JQuery for Complete Beginners: Part 1 (there have been four parts so far)

30+ Killer Web Development Screencasts to fine tune your skills

The Ultimate Roundup of 55+ CSS3 Tutorials

Getting Started: Learning to Code for the Web, Logically

Enjoy these two and if you’re feeling adventurous, check out these two data visualization blogs and these two design blogs.
