  • Pump up da Project: 5 Must-Have JavaScripts (February 2014 Edition)

    Have you already heard of “You might not need jQuery”? That site created ripples soon after its release a few weeks ago. It suggests that you might be better off targeting modern browser features directly, instead of relying on jQuery to achieve basically the same. Then again, who as a developer can actually determine which browsers will definitely not be used for visiting the project about to be created. I have my doubts doubting jQuery overall, yet I have always had sympathies for JavaScripts that are self-contained and not dependent on jQuery. I would not recommend going for pure CSS at the moment, even if theoretically possible. JavaScript is needed anyway, so why not use it where suitable. Following I put together a fresh bunch of those that impressed me most lately…

    WordPress powers a massive amount of websites and has rightfully become the go-to solution for most small to medium businesses. It is easy to comprehend, easy to install and easy to administer.

And you know, if you could just master WordPress, you’d be well on your way to creating fantastic websites!

  • IM FREE: Curated Collections of Free Commercial Use Photos No Designer Can Do Without

    Okay, this is new. At least that’s how I decided to apologize why I didn’t notice this service by IM-Creator earlier. Remember IM-Creator? The homepage builder equipped with templates made by freelance designers itself targets freelance designers and not the DIY thirteen year old son of the CEO’s golf mate. It was this same homepage builder that secretly (well almost…) introduced a new offering named IM FREE. IM FREE hosts curated collections with free, also commercially usable photos. And it contains quite a few gems…

  • DesignerCandies: Brand-new Service Offers Free Design Resources in the Public Domain

    DesignerCandies is a five weeks old side-project maintained by designer Adam McIntyre. At the time of this writing, DesignerCandies hosts 25 freebies, suitable for both web and print design. Given the current pace, the collection grows by five freebies weekly. To date the focus lies on 3D renders, yet textures and brushes can also be found. The most interesting point: all the resources are released into the Public Domain, which means they are explicitly uncopyrighted and thus, free for each and every thinkable use case.

  • Almost for Free: 17 Premium Responsive WordPress Themes

    Premium responsive WordPress themes. Does that not sound like your favorite tune? I know it does to my ears. And from our analytics backend we know that WordPress themes are among the top ten most wanted article topics here at Noupe, your wonderful design magazine. While free themes are always a solid traffic magnet, premium themes usually fall behind a little. Which is due to the fact, at least that’s my interpretation, that they are sometimes ambitiously priced. But what if we had premium themes closest to the most radical price of all. That’s what we want to show you today…

  • New Old Stock: Public Domain Photos from Institutional Archives Worldwide

    Many institutions create and collect photos and make them available as Public Domain or licenses closest to that. As we all know, public institutions don’t really care to make their services comfortably usable. On top of that these collections contain loads more chaff than wheat. Cole Townsend from Buffalo, New York has come to our rescue. His Tumblr project “New Old Stock” curates the best free photos from public archives and it does quite a job…

  • Responsive Images: Still Waiting for a Standard? Try Rwd.Images.Js Instead!

    Responsive Images is a topic far from resolved. Will it be the picture element as proposed by the W3C or will it be the srcset attribute as proposed by WHATWG in the end? No matter what time will bring, responsive images are a problem that needs to be solved today and not sometime in the future. No wonder that JavaScript is the remedy of choice. There are quite a few scripts targeting responsive imaging, quality varies though. A brand-new script by Matt Stow from Australia shows the potential to become the best available client-side interim solution…
