Back in November we showcased here a list with 8 Books Every Designer Should Read, and to the present day, five months later we keep receiving emails from readers thanking us for the list and asking for a new round of recommendations. Based on that, I decided to gather a few more books for you to check out. Since I’m not a designer, I had to ask my friends who are designers and developers to help me out with some recommendations, and here is a new round of books we believe may interest you. Feel free to also give your recommendations in the comments. (more…)

So instead, let’s focus in on the ones that you’ll really find yourself returning to, day after day. For inspiration, we’ve rounded up three resources with completely different scopes and subjects; in combination, they might be all you need to get yourself going on your next project. For tools, we’ve made selections that reach out to all the different design disciplines; whether you work primarily in print or web, alone or in a group, you’ll find a great timesaver or two. (more…)

Whether you’re already a pro at creating responsive web sites or your just learning what it’s all about, it’s good to have some scripts handy that you can easily integrate into your site. We all know how popular image and content sliders are now, and for good reason. So we decided to round up some jQuery slider plugins that are already responsive – meaning they will adapt to the size of their container. (more…)
