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…)
jQuery was first released in 2006. Nearly 5 years later, it’s still going strong – due largely in part to the community that’s been built up around it. This community of developers constantly releases plugins that allow web developers to easily add amazing functionality to their projects.

Eventually, we’ll all stop talking about responsive web design – not because it will go away, but because it will become what’s expected. Flashback ten years ago and we were all talking about CSS and tableless design, but today there’s no need to mention it.

When I first sat down to write this post my idea was to compile a list of the best business books for designers. However, as I found books claiming to fit this niche, I began to notice something that got me asking questions. It was the publishing dates. Some were 2009, others 2008, and others were dated as far back as 2003 or even older! I immediately thought to myself, “How could these books possibly be valid today?” I mean, Facebook and Twitter didn’t even exist then! When I’m searching for posts online, if I come across a blog post or news story from 2005 or 2006 I don’t even read it. It’s old news, outdated, irrelevant. But is that just the nature of internet content ? Have I somehow been programmed to disregard possibly helpful material just because of a date? (more…)
Back in October of last year, I launched Theme Trust, a shop for premium WordPress themes. Five months later, I couldn’t be more excited about where it’s at. Sales have consistently increased each month, and the amount of positive feedback from customers has been overwhelming.
