Page loading time is obviously an important part of any website’s user experience. And many times we’ll let it slide to accommodate better aesthetic design, new nifty functionality or to add more content to web pages.

Explain Everything is just the ticket for those of us who endeavor to be the "guide on the side"... Students can repeat the explanations as many times as needed.

Web Designer’s Arsenal: a Collection of Free Useful Websites

Web Designer’s Arsenal: a Collection of Free Useful Websites | Teaching Website Design | Scoop.it


A designers are always lacking materials to create a design. Even if time is running out, it’s better to exceed the deadline than do the bad job. The musician has musical instruments to give the world to hear the sounds that play in his head; an artist has a brush, paint and easel to paint a picture that he has in mind, but what about the web designer? A designer has a set of favourite websites with free useful stuff in his bookmarks.


This web designer’s arsenal helps him to win a fight with hard-to-pleased clients and implement all the amazing ideas in order to create a truly great design.


Today I’m going to share with you a collection of free useful websites from my own bookmarks. Of course, I often use a Google search to find some stuff i need. However, why can’t you go to the particular website and know that you will find needed things there for sure. Today’s collection is not just ordinary freebies. To be honest, I spent a lot of time to collect all those websites and all of them have helped me to create really good design at one time. So, take a look at them, choose and download.

10 tell-tale signs that your website may need a redesign

10 tell-tale signs that your website may need a redesign | Teaching Website Design | Scoop.it

This seems to be the year of the website redesign. So many companies and startups are relaunching brand new websites, and with good reason. Technology is changing, design trends are coming and going, how sites are used is changing, even things such as social media and community interaction are changing and shaping how websites should look and function.


Redesigning websites today isn’t just about changing the look and feel. With technology changing and different problems needing to be solved, redesigning and overhauling websites goes much deeper than just the way they look. The functionality, presentation, how they load, and how well they can be updated are all things that are prompting website redesigns on the daily basis.


Feel like you could be getting left in the dust with everyone around you launching new websites? Below are several questions to ask yourself when it comes to your own website to see if it is time to join everyone else in the year of the website redesign.


Is your website responsive?

There has been a very big push in the last couple of years to make websites more device friendly. With a multitude of various devices able to access the Web now, the web design community has made it clear that it is time to rethink the way we design websites. It is no longer good enough to design a website for a desktop or laptop computer, especially with millions of people accessing the Web on their smartphones, tablets, TVs, gaming, and music devices. This really became apparent thanks to Ethan Marcotte who in May 2010 published an article entitled “Responsive Web Design” which has now become the foundation of the growing need to make sites work on all devices without hindering user experience. (If you have no idea what I am talking about, then that article will help clear things up for you.)

Beauty, Warmth and Color In Website Design [50 Examples + Marty Note]

Beauty, Warmth and Color In Website Design [50 Examples + Marty Note] | Teaching Website Design | Scoop.it

Marty Note
I am looking at a lot of sites right now to help refine my ScentTrail Marketing blog. Color is tough online. A little color can go a LONG way. Websites start cold. Our jobs as Internet marketer is to warm them up. Here is how I like to warm up a website's design:

* Color.

* Images (with people).

* Copy (especially teaser headlines).

* Clear navigation.

* Tagging the brand (helps create a sense of being in right place).

* Clear and omnipresent contact information.

* Testimonials (quotes from others that aren't ME or US lol).

* Heroes that match the seasons (can be tough if you are a global brand).

The last one is worth discussing. Time doesn't really exist online. Lack of a sense of time is what makes websites feel like Vegas where there are no clocks; weather and you rarely go out (lol). One way you connect to emotions and feeling is to feel like Christmas when it is Christmas.

If you are a global brand a picture of snow and trees turning may not work. Instead use images that address the IDEA of fall such as people in sweaters or displace your heroes (largest images on the page) to a location that suggest fall (mountains). You can also create interesting juxtapositions - winter in the desert.

The last example uses language to connect to time. Words with time IN THEM such as Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer are POWERFUL warming words when used in connection with the calendar.
