Humans have always been fascinated by flames and fire for hundreds of years. Fire can help us stay warm and allows us to cook – but it also has very destructive powers. Maybe this contrasting duality is one of the reasons why we are so fascinated with fire and flames: it’s beautiful and scary at the same time. Here are a few inspiring works of art featuring fire or flames.
To be unique and original, you need to have a good source of inspiration. You can get inspiration from music, family and friends, even other people’s work, to get a great design idea.
To help, we bring you this collection of light and clean websites, separated into different categories.
I’ve always been a fan of Apple’s design. As a web designer, I’m sure that many of you are. When Apple released the iPhone and iPod Touch, thousands of apps hit the app store. As a result, web designers started creating sites for Apple apps. These sites promote, give information about, and help sell these apps. In this showcase, you’ll find 35 beautiful handpicked app websites.
A portfolio design is a reflection of the skills and talents of the designer that owns it. Often, the hardest web design is creating your own portfolio, and thus, can take a lot of the designer’s time to create and finish. This collection is a follow up of the showcase called, "25 Impressive Portfolio Web Designs" which you should view as well.
Feast your eyes on some of the web’s most beautiful online portfolios.
"Coming soon" pages are a great way to tide over your visitors until you finish your new website. They can be used as a teaser for your future website, or places to simply put your information where people can get to it while you are under digital construction. We are going to look at a collection of how websites are successfully using "coming soon" pages.
When it comes to web design, my experience demonstrates to me that it’s easier to add to a design rather than to take away from it. The challenge with minimalist layouts lies in the conundrum of making something beautiful with basic design elements —and with as few of them as possible.
Lately, I’ve been attracted to simple and clean designs. Design Instruct is a testament to my affinity towards creating designs that present the idea of "less is more."
In this collection are masterfully created minimalist designs for your inspiration in your current and future work. This is a follow up of a collection called 40 Beautiful Examples of Minimalism in Web Design published last year. (You should check that out as well, if you haven’t already.)
Concept designs are great and frustrating at the same time. They’re wonderful because they give us a glimpse of the future and push the industry towards innovation and outside-of-the-box thinking, but agitating because we know we can’t have them right now. It can’t hurt to look at them though so that at least we can put money in the bank to save up for them when/if they go in production.
