3 Resources for Web Designers


ScreenshotNot every web worker is also a web designer – but many of us are, on scales from our own blog to giant commercial applications. If you find yourself pushing pixels and HTML and CSS around on a regular basis, you know that there’s an almost unlimited amount of knowledge to master to be really good at it. Here are three gateway resources that can help you find that information:

  • Cheat Sheets for Front-end Web Developers is a roundup post from Six Revisions. It offers pointers – with excerpts – to 23 different cheat sheets covering HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  • Skout is an old-fashioned portal site. It offers hundreds of categorized links: fonts, color tools, icons, stock photos, tutorials, tools, JavaScript libraries…
  • Konigi is directed at user experience designers, with showcases of excellent design and interfaces as well as useful graph paper for manual wireframe sketching.

There are a couple of fantastic reference site which have just been launched which concentrate on modern web development techniques. There is no need to worry about accidentally using old fashioned code, as can often be the case with online resources.

Opera have just launched the
Opera Web Standards Curriculum which is a great resource for anybody who want to study standards based web design.

It currently covers HTML and CSS and more articles to cover JavaScript are in the pipeline.

With more of a reference structure than a course structure, the SitePoint Reference is a very comprehensive set of resources. Again, a JavaScript section will soon be added.
