Often in media it is said that how your write is just as important as what your write. This very sentence emphasizes the importance and role of typography in creative design and media. Further, since graphic designs are meant to showcase your brand in a way that visually engages the viewer, typography is indispensable for…

Landing Pages at its simplest are pages that someone can ‘land’ on. But this in itself is very vague. To understand it in the context of small businesses and the marketing campaigns thereof, landing pages are standalone pages on a website with a clear objective. The intention behind landing pages is to limit the user’s…

With growing number of internet users, the economic market is rapidly shifting from the physical to the digital. As such, e-stores are quickly becoming the go-to choice for a majority of the urban population to do their shopping. E-stores or eCommerce websites are therefore quickly becoming the connection between the buyers and the sellers and…

Those who love design are willing to follow in the footsteps of greats who came before. Podcasts are an excellent way to pick up information from these greats – but the podcasts themselves are only audio. As designers we care deeply about the packaging and its shiny little red bow. In the realm of web…

Typekit and Google Webfonts have paved a new superhighway for web typography. Designers have the option to choose from a growing library of fonts that include all font styles. Thin font families are great for minimalist layouts and spacious areas of content. Choosing the right font is difficult – and it’s even more difficult to…

Corporate business websites are often considered stuffy, outdated, and sometimes out-of-touch with clientel. Admittedly larger corporations can grow a bit too large and derail from their original intention. But when partnered with an amazing creative team corporations can quickly get back on track. This gallery focuses on websites for finance, banking, and other pecuniary institutions….

It’s surprising how many people move into the field of copywriting. It’s a much-needed position to fill in advertising and marketing agencies. But copywriters also manage content in publications like magazines, TV guides, instruction manuals, and many other printed publications. It seems almost every company or idea rests on the wordsmithing abilities of talented copywriters.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to portfolio design. The layout style tends to morph depending on what you create and how you design. But overall it’s just a website meant to showcase a particular talent. I hope this gallery provides inspiring ideas to other writers who are currently in the process of building or redesigning their own personal website.

Modern minimalism is vastly overrated for the value it adds to a website. When content is centered as the main priority users are free from excess distractions. Granted not everyone likes minimalism because it can be seen as lazy, simplistic, or just boring. But this is not the case!

The best minimalist websites are anything but boring. In this gallery I’ve put together a series of minimalist layouts for personal creatives like writers, designers, and performers. Minimalism is a powerful tool when used appropriately. Graphics and photos have their place but not always higher than content. Take a peek at these examples and see if you can draw any ideas for your own creative work.

I’ve been ecstatic to see substantial growth in modern web typography. More website layouts have been incorporating oddball typography that really stands out from the generic masses. Not every project can benefit from over-exaggerated text but when done properly it adds a deeper level of emphases to your page copy.

I’ve put together a large handful of websites that use big creative typography including letter-spacing, new typefaces, and CSS3 properties to craft enticing layouts. Agencies and startups tend to push the envelope when it comes to new design trends. But this gallery includes many different styles of web design to offer unique inspiration for your next project.

Not many designers place enough focus on the benefits of creative search fields. For content-heavy websites most users will be prepared to search for what they’re looking for. If the search interface sucks then people will be forced to leave and hit Google, or worse… Ask Jeeves.

Instead of driving people away like a repugnant foul pot roast, why not spice up the design and give it some flavor? Then everyone will simply adore the pot roast! In this analogy the pot roast is a stinky search input field that just needs a little TLC.

I’ve put together a selection of beautiful search interfaces from across the web. Some are big, some are small, others are more suitable for persnickety little babies like Goldilocks. But overall this gallery is quite diverse featuring a wide range of design trends for search interfaces. If I’ve missed any gems feel free to share your own ideas in the comments section.
