  • WP Job Manager: Free WordPress Plugin Lets You Build Your Own Job Board

    Job boards have grown in popularity over the last few years. Due to the fact that more and more people work project-based rather than in lifetime occupations, searching for new jobs has become a frequent task to many of us. Especially in these cases, official job boards often fall short. Specialized boards are much better suited. So, if you maintain a service, say an online magazine, aiming at a certain industry, say designers and developers, you might have thought about integrating job board functionality already. We know, we at the Smashing family did. If you don’t have the same power to invest, a free job board plugin by the name of WP Job Manager might just be what you’re looking for.

  • Exclusive Freebie on Noupe: 50 Funny Icons Out of The Ordinary

    Oops, that shouldn’t have happened. Simply hold your breath for a minute and it will have faded. Yes, we find this hilarious. A few weeks ago, Nasty Icons created ripples, yet we found the set too drastic in some ways.

They agreed immediately and today, we are proud to be able to bring the 50 symbols to you. All of the icons are free to use for any type of project, but you can only get them here…

  • Beyond Light X-Rayography

    You know that we love art here at Noupe headquarters. And while we are dedicated to digital artists mostly, once and again we stumble upon other art forms impossible to ignore.

Albert creates photos using traditional x-ray technology and then colours the pictures manually. His project Beyond Light cooperates with Photowall to bring x-rayography as wall murals or on canvas into your own four walls.
