Amazing Web Designer Resource Collection and Color Tools

I was originally going to write a quick post on some color tool resources, being inspired by Well Styled’s brand new revision of their awesome color tool, found here. The Color Scheme Designer has a lot of neat new functions, including generating a preview of a website with the colors that you have picked along with new customization features. I realized that most of the tools I had to write about were already included in this very nice website that Tom Dufour brought to my attention, called Web Designer Heaven.

Are CSS Frameworks Really Worth Using?

I’ve witnessed the beauty of frameworks for languages like PHP such as CakePHP, and for Ruby such as Ruby on Rails, not to mention the myriad of great javascript libraries that are out there. I see the potential for making life a lot easier by using these frameworks. They prevent you from having to reinvent the wheel, and can really speed up your production. The difference between these and CSS frameworks such as Blueprint is that they impact how the site functions, and not really how it appears to the user (I’m not including js libraries in this statement).

Great Firefox Plugins For Any Web Designer or Developer

The greatest thing about technology advancing is that it allows us to be more efficient and lazy than we ever have been before. I wanted to talk about some of the applications, services, and resources that I use that make my life as a web designer/developer easier, quicker, and more enjoyable. And more tasty. I realized that I bloated this article enough with just Firefox plugins, so I’m going to make another post after this one that involves useful non-Firefox applications. You may have already heard of a lot of these, but read on anyways because you never know what you might have missed. Or, possibly you are just enthralled by my incredible writing. Or you salivate over any mention of Firefox plugins.

If you still aren’t convinced, just shut up and read on anyways, I promise you’ll get a Hershey kiss at the end. Maybe.

Beginning of a new era. Or. . . maybe just a new website

Hello everyone!

I’ve been hard at work at this new website. Well, really going back and forth between “hard” work and “I’ll get to that later. . .” work. The website is finally complete, and now that it is I plan on working a lot more with it.
