Our favorite web design award, AWWWARDS, has launched a new book detailing their favorite 365 websites from around the world. Looks like a great resource for inspiration at a fair price of $39, and it comes with an eBook version and book app for iOS. I did order mine just yesterday, and will provide a review after it arrives. From the site: An inspiring book for art directors, designers, and web developers. A compilation of the 365 best websites and 7 project...

[vc_row full_screen_section_height="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text]pixeden.com is a great resource for mockups and whatnot, some free and some premium. This wine bottle mockup is free on pixeden, they only ask that you share this find when you download (although it's not a requirement). And while on the site, you may want to check some of their other awesome downloads.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height="40px"][om_cc_vc_gallery layout="masonry" cols_lg="2" zoom_image_on="none" hover_time_animate="0.5" caption_time_animate="0.4" caption_time_delay="0" caption_back_time_animate="0.2" caption_back_time_delay="0" cols_xs="1" images="802,801,800,799" _cc_clearfix_1="" _cc_hr_2="" _cc_clearfix_3="" _cc_clearfix_4="" _cc_clearfix_5="" _cc_clearfix_6="" _cc_clearfix_7="" _cc_clearfix_8="" _cc_clearfix_9="" _cc_hr_10="" _cc_title_11="" _cc_clearfix_12="" _cc_clearfix_13="" _cc_clearfix_14=""...

There are quite a few inspirational galleries and award websites out there today. Most all of them are collections of what the moderator feels are worthy of listing in his/her gallery based on overall design. There are a few, however, that focus on specific elements of the website, such as its platform, color scheme, coding, style, etc. Below I've compiled a list of some of these element-centric galleries that I find especially useful when seeking very specific inspiration. Colorgorize, http://colorgorize.com Categorizes websites based...

Just a bunch of free, useful tools available to make web design a little bit easier: TinyPNG - www.tinypng.org Advanced lossy compression for PNG images that preserves full alpha transparency. Great tool for compressing single or multiple (up to 20 at once) png images. FindMyFacebookID.com - www.findmyfacebookid.com As simple as it gets - just enter the profile url and boom, there's your numeric ID. Good Guy Gareth James of SEO Doctor, www.seo-doctor.co.uk, pointed out to us that the Facebook ID Finder above is a phishing SCAM...

UPDATE: The latest version has been released, and covers Wordpress 3.3 Digging into Wordpress is both a tutorial blog and recently released book, both by Chris Coyier and Jeff Starr. I've been the occasional fan of the site, and decided to give the book a try. I suppose it was mostly the sleek and beautiful design of the book itself that drew my attention, with its aqueous pages and spiral spine. This is definitely not your average reference book, and right...

In light of the growing number of rip off reports and tales of peeved Shopify customers blazing across the internet, we've decided to cut all ties with Shopify, effective immediately. We started offering customized Shopify online stores as an alternative to Miva Merchant because of its appeal to non-techy shop owners. However, Shopify's increasingly negative reputation has us very concerned. Our PSD Design Shop was created with Shopify, but we decided to switch to Wordpress (still under construction). When I cancelled...

We just completed a revamp and upgrade of Rerun Productions, one of our very first clients. We've worked with Rerun for years and just adore their whole idea of functional art made from recycled items. Anyway, we upgraded their previous flash site to a simpler Wordpress site with more emphasis on search engine optimization, networking and traffic generation. This new site is also a complete CMS with video integration, Ajax features, automatic photo resizing, lightbox popup, built-in "simple forms", and...
