Happy New Year! Today, we’ve got a nifty guide to resolutions that are specifically for designers. What changes do you hope to make in 2021? Did you know that people have been making resolutions to improve themselves and their lives since the time of ancient Babylonians? I’ll admit to making a few of these myself……Details
Hello everyone. Since September I started in the world of web dev. I think I am quite proficient with creating static content with HTML (semantics), CSS (responsive web sites, positioning, flexbox and grid) and a bit of JS (hamburger menu implementation, dark mode, event handling, content that appears on scroll down). The situation is that I am short of money and I see an opportunity to create a “landing page” for some companies and / or businesses close to me. But before offering my service I would like to ask a few questions:
What should I know about hosting? I have to take care of the hosting of the web pages and I need to know that I should learn about security issues or whatever else is behind the web page hosting. I know that there are multiple platforms to host static projects for free such as GitHub but most likely companies and / or businesses want “name.com” domains, so I would like to know the most used services with a good price.
What should I know about the SEO? In the HTML, regardless of the content added in the body tag, only external .css and .js files will be linked, as well as setting the favicon and UTF-8, but I know there are other important “meta tags” that help with the visibility of the pages in search engines.
Where you reside, how much would you charge for a “landing page” like this? I am not the creator of that page but I place it as a reference because it is very similar to what I want to offer and I know that I could do it without problems. I know that the prices are variable depending on the area, but it would help me to have a reference.
In general, what other things should I know? Anything else you may need I would like to know 🙂
My goal is to continue learning JS and then learn React but in the meantime I need to earn some money and I think it’s a good opportunity. Thanks for the help!Details
In much of the world, 2020 started off like any other year. January 1 provided a reason to celebrate and look forward to good things. You don’t need to be a historian to know the rest of the story. The COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with social and political unrest, made 2020 a memorable year – mostly…Details
Basically i want to make this for a website and have it click-action interactive, such that when the User clicks on Culture, it’d switch to it with some animation and expands the sub categories of Culture.
Am not sure where to begin, I’m still learning web development so i may lack some common terms.Details
Bootstrap is one of the most popular design frameworks. One the reasons why it’s so popular is the fact that it’s optimized for mobile devices and has a well-organized grid system along with hundreds of elements that make prototyping and designing for the web a lot easier. In this roundup, we’ve gathered 15 free UI…Details
Instagram stories are a great way to connect with your followers and give them a glimpse into your personal life as well as exclusive behind the scene updates. However, creating an Instagram story from scratch can be time-consuming. That’s where Instagram Story templates come in handy. In this roundup, we’re featuring the best Instagram Story…Details
After you’ve spent dozens (if not hundreds) hours working on your next mobile app, carefully designing every feature and element, it’s important to showcase the quality of your work during your meeting with or presentation for your clients. Normally, app designers opt for screenshots and diagrams. However, for the majority of clients, this is not…Details
This is my first time posting here since I didn’t have much to post before but I think now is a good time. After studying webdev for about 6 months, I finally made my portfolio site. It is statically generated with NextJS and showcases my last 6 projects with 5 of them being front+backend projects.
I have no degree and I’m looking to get in to the web development field so I was wondering if the site is good and the projects I’ve done are enough. I didn’t follow any tutorials for the projects so there may be some weird things but overall I’m happy with what I’ve done.
The Linkedin and mail links are currently intentionally blank. I don’t really have much knowledge on UI/UX so I understand if some things don’t look the best, but I also have some questions about other choices:
Should I remove the Contact section since I already have all of those links both in the banner and in the footer?
Is it a good idea to have that “Self-taught” in the banner or should I just have it as “Web developer”? I may try to come up with a little 1 sentence introduction if both are bad.
Are the colors nice or should I go for a more serious palette?
I’ll change the site title to my full name but I was also wondering about the domain name, full name would be very long so I may just go with first and middle name together but I’m open to suggestions.
If anyone has the time a very quick resume feedback would be appreciated as well.
Visit the site here. Thanks 🙂Details
After putting it off for years, I finally released a new website and portfolio this year. What do you think?
Sorry, some of you may recognise this was posted a few days ago: I missed the ‘Showoff Saturday’ rules and had my original post removed. Hopefully today it will be ok!
I’ve been in front-end web development for nearly two decades at this point, my personal website has been a key way of selling myself for the decade or more. Inevitably, it has always fallen behind in importance compared to paying work so has only had two major updates in that time.
During the Covid slow-down, I finally managed to get the latest version (which I’d been working on on-and-off for over a year) finished and live. Now that it’s been up for a little while, I would love to get feedback and opinions from you all.

With the very nature of web design, it’s very difficult to do something a little ‘different’ – I worry that it’s overworked. I’ve also found choosing portfolio items without stuffing hundreds in there really difficult.
So: what do you think?
