Useful Resources For Web Designers

Productivity is one of the most critical assets of a professional web designer or developer. Our day to day projects naturally lend themselves to an open minded approach to the acquisition of new resources, tools and services; ultimately making the increasingly vast techniques easier.

Thankfully there are an abundance of useful resources to equip the discerning web designer with all the firepower they need; in this post we will list but a few of the inspiring websites to fuel your creativity:

They like to think of themselves as the “DVD extras of design”, giving real life insight into the creation of professional work within the industry and covering who made it, how they did it, and even techniques developed by the creators over recent years.

A place to share inspiration, where designers are able to fuel each others creativity and discover what inspires them; A “one-stop shop for creative inspiration”.

Publishes lists of books identified as important, meaningful and informative by designers held in high regard on the international design scene, which gives fantastic exposure to a concentrated flow of useful, proven literature which otherwise might go missed.

This particular website is dedicated to UI details, frequently featuring the common social media companies such as facebook and twitter; highlighting precise aspects of excellence and why they work so well.

Likes to refer to themselves as the “show and tell” for designers, a place where you can share what you are working on in an exclusive environment. Aside from this, Dribble provides a unique opportunity to scout ( and therefore to be scouted ) for potential work; making Dribble a prime stage for self promotion or employment!

Like many showcasing websites, Awwwards, in essence; shares some of the best work in the industry on a daily basis. The defining factor that makes this particular site stand out is the jury of designers, bloggers and internet agencies which are responsible for ranking the submissions. The inclusion of such talented individuals reflects heavily on the quality of sites featured throughout the categories on a day to day basis.
