27 Beautiful, Typography-Based Web Designs.

Web typography is much more than a cool font. It's a font with a size, a color, a typeface. It's spacing all over. It's about knowing where, when and how to display it on a web page. It's a lot of things - and that's what makes it so interesting! It's art.

We can't avoid the fact that typography has evolved to be one of the most important roles in modern web design. These days, typography requires lots of attention I believe every web designer should pay for their works; because after all, typography does play a big role in user experience.

Agree or not, but the web is built of mostly content (text) whose purpose is mainly to send messages to users. Sadly, users don't read anymore – they scan - and scanning is, my friends, what makes this whole story so interesting!

35 website footer designs, trends and styles.

As you might already know, good web design - in most cases - should contain basic elements such as easily used (yet beautiful) navigation menus, attracting headers, well written content, and for last, footers. In this post I would like to talk more about the last element that is becoming a very fascinating issue these days - the kinds and styles of footers.

In a lot of sites, footers are no longer a single line copyright text and/or a simple secondary navigation; nowadays they are more complex than that. They count as a factor every web designer needs to pay attention to when designing, just like to any other element.

The new trend is the Web 2.0 style. Now let's face it, we see them quite a lot and we can't disagree with the fact that they are simply awesome! Here is where footers play the role of accessibility and usability and becomes one of the most important elements in an overall website design. Web 2.0 footers attract readers and make them involved in the site's content - which also contributes a lot to a website. Let's think about it a bit, a reader finishes reading a post and at the end awaits him footer with lots of other content he can't avoid not to look at. Most cases the reader doesn't fly away after a five second look, instead he ends up reading more and more by this same exact process - it's genius!

What does it mean to be a

I don't usually go crazy on articles, but this one really got me amazed. Jeff basically shares his point of view on the situation of our design industry and what are the differences from begin a professional and a hacker. He makes his points well enough and persuading. This article is simply incredible and so true that every web designer should read. Additionaly, I contacted Jeff in order to give me the permission to translate his article into Hebrew, so the Israeli web society would also be enjoying a good read ;)
