Fudge
The website of digital studio Fudge is currently under construction. Still, the way it has designed its latest news log is worth mentioning here. Photoshop interface imitating design is a neat idea. Plus, the navigation is a treat for the eye.

This is a working library

LaMalla.cl (Chile)
This amazing blog belongs to a small community of creative people, a space to share links to inspirational info from all over the globe. A grayscale geometrical background and cool jQuery effects make our exploration of this website a really enjoyable experience.

Contrast
A clean style, nifty typography and hover effects make for a great blog design. Excellent work by Contrast, a Web apps development crew from Ireland.

Demain J’arrête (France)
This classy comic strip is available in French only, but the blog’s design won’t leave you cold.

Fran Fernández
The blog of Spanish singer Fran Fernández features an expressive and slightly careless-looking graphic design, which reflects the passion of the musician best.

Stéréosuper (France)
Stéréosuper is a successful duo of creative folks working in the field of multimedia. Boris and Jean-Francois are keen on karate: perhaps this explains the imaginative fighting characters in their design. The dark color scheme and hatched elements are quite appealing, too.

Music City Unsigned
This cute blog belongs to the Nashville community of emerging artists. Although it is Flash-based, you won’t have any problems with accessibility or navigation here.

Tal & Acacia
Unpretentious beauty: this is how we would describe this design. Pastel-themed graphics give it a special flavor.

Tal 038 Acacia in 50 Beautiful and Creative Blog Designs

Denis Chandler’s Blog (Another Blog About Stuff)
The style of this blog is fairly conventional, but look at the header! This bit of spice elevates the otherwise formal design, bringing in some splash.

Hello in 50 Beautiful and Creative Blog Designs

Mulletized
This blog of Cape Town Web designer Brendon Grobler features an offbeat layout and great use of typography. This is what Brendon says about his blog redesign: “I tried to create something less “bloggy” and more graphic, focusing strongly on typography (which is one of my great design loves) and imagery.” The result is impressive, wouldn’t you agree?

Mulletized in 50 Beautiful and Creative Blog Designs

M1K3
This blog (belonging to UI designer and developer Michael Dick) is an example of an excellent dark design.

Mk3 in 50 Beautiful and Creative Blog Designs

Mark Forrester
This awesome blog-styled website is a creative outlet for Mark Forrester, a “half-baked” (his words) English/South African freelance designer and entrepreneur. The journal is easy and pleasant to navigate, and the cartoon illustrations in the header and footer are incredible. (They were designed by Cape Town-based illustrator and cartoonist Alex Latimer).

Forrester in 50 Beautiful and Creative Blog Designs

Jord & Chan
This nice duo-themed layout presents two strips of content on the same page, a very original idea. The smooth background texture adds more charm to the design.

Jord 038 Chan in 50 Beautiful and Creative Blog Designs

Cog’Nition
This blog has a lovely surprise: you can change the design’s theme, choosing from two amusing cartoon-style backgrounds.

JonahL
Jonah Levine’s blog follows simplicity and a pure style. An attractive dark design, and a good use of lines.

JonahL in 50 Beautiful and Creative Blog Designs

Marcel Müller blog
Marcel Müller’s blog has a stylish, corporate look. Another good example of precise, minimalist design.

Muller in 50 Beautiful and Creative Blog Designs

TrippingWords
This really is something striking. Everything here, from the header to the footer, is extraordinary and hyper-creative.

    I’m in Interactive Media, and I am going to learn Maya. I looked up the software online and it’s very expensive over $500.00.

    I am going specifically for web design because I like designing and making pages. I need to know this because I want to know which software I will need to buy for homework and a future career. My school has a deal with Adobe for students. $237 for Flash, Dream Weaver, Fireworks and Contribute.

  • Adam September 16, 2013 at 3:12 pm

    I’m considering opening up a small web design shop as a side business within the next year or so, mainly focusing on small businesses and non-profits. I’m curious to know if there is a still a healthy market for site design, considering many small businesses are now using self-publishing platforms like WordPress and other tools. Thanks!

  • Xedo September 17, 2013 at 9:49 am

    I’m a middle school teacher who would like to make a career change. I’m very attracted to web design & development, but have heard that the market is now flooded with web designers. I also read that they don’t make much money. How difficult is it to get a job in this field and how much money can you make? What kind of education would I need? Any advice appreciated. Thanks!

  • Alina Elliott September 17, 2013 at 12:05 pm

    I want to set up a website for my freelance company, I do web design, development and support. I want something cool, but also something that tells people I am professional. Thanks.

  • PIE BOY September 18, 2013 at 2:26 am

    I am planning on starting a web design company, and I am getting some staff together to help out. I am planning on how I want everything, and I just want more info on running one, so I don’t make a mistake when running one.

  • Travoiz September 24, 2013 at 5:32 am

    I’m going into web design, and while freelance is eventually my goal I’m wondering if there are any 9-5 type jobs like where you go to the office and have a boss and you get a paycheck every week or two weeks or month.

  • brincks26 September 26, 2013 at 4:49 am

    I want to hire someone to do all my product brochures and new web design, but here in my office. what are some things I need to ask the candidate and what kind of wage should I be offering?

  • mendhak September 28, 2013 at 12:35 am

    What are the best blogging sites to talk about Web Design?

    Need a good site to go and share tech blogs with others. Ones that are quite popular and could even help generate traffic to my site.

  • soccermaster1 October 1, 2013 at 1:16 pm

    I have a small business of grocery and i need to add the web design of my website. Not yet received any trusted webdesign. So please help me for that. Thanks you.

  • apleaforbrandon October 3, 2013 at 9:45 pm

    I originally wanted to major in web design because i like the creative aspect of it, but what is the difference between the two?
    Also, what should I major in if I want to design and code (html, css, PHP) sites?

  • diggn4richez October 4, 2013 at 4:41 am

    I’m about to open my own small business and would like to launch a website with the possibility of adding an online store later. Should I invest in something like coffeecup or xara or just use yahoo web design or godaddy since they offer easy e-commerce options? Is an option like Mal’s e-commerce or kickstartkcart a better alternative to yahoo and godaddy?

  • Maggie October 5, 2013 at 8:56 pm

    I’m looking for a good college located in the midwest that offers web design in the form of a BACHELORS or a MASTERS. Perferably some in KS.

  • Dana G October 8, 2013 at 11:28 am

    I am just wondering what job opportunities will be available for the degrees I am pursuing. I am currently working on my Associates in Web Design and will receive my degree in the fall. After that I plan on working on my Bachelor’s in Graphic Design. Is this a good idea? I initially planned on just taking Web Design, but I want to explore a more creative path with Graphic Design.

  • Muzahid October 10, 2013 at 1:52 am

    I am looking at starting a web design firm with some friends and want to follow all the legal procedures. Are they sole proprietorships or corporations? Do I need a business license? What paperwork and other legal things do I need to do? I am totally confused as to where to beginning finding out the step by step process to making my business legal and fully professional and recognized. Any thoughts/opinions/comments in detail would be greatly appreciated. Once again I want to create a web design firm based in Seattle that does business both locally and nationally, and will have employees. Thanks!

  • shahrukh October 10, 2013 at 1:52 am

    I’m looking for good universities that offers bachelor degrees in Web design or Graphic Design… out of the united states and inside both work for me. State universities rather than private are preferred, but you can tell me both.

  • tjpimpin October 18, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    I want to be able to fix computer problems and also do web design to the extent where I can do them as a job. What is the best way to go about learning this? Are there any online programs or guide that are particularly helpful? I don’t care about the price.

    Or would you recommend some other way to learning?

  • blarg blarg October 19, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    I want to make a web design in adobe illustrator but I don’t know how to get it to dreamweaver.

    Do I save it as an image and then plot the links out?

  • Myles October 27, 2013 at 8:54 pm

    I am not good at web design but would still like to offer web design services. Do you know of any companies that offer a commission per sale for a website? I do not want to create a website and have an affiliate link, I would rather go to local businesses and see if they are interested in having a website created for them.

    So basically I go to a business, see if they want a website. If they do, somehow I can refer them to a company and make a certain amount per sale.

    Do you have any companies in mind?

  • Death Knight October 28, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    I’m taking web design and programming for all my high school years and its really interesting. i wonder what can you do with web design and programming in life. I plan on doing something with those when i get older. which college/university do i go to? what do i have to study?

  • Clayton Cottrell October 30, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    I am currently a junior in high school (also taking classes at the local college to get ahead) and want to have a career in some sort of computer based designing, but I can’t choose. The two I’m mainly considering are web design and graphic design. I personally would prefer being in graphic design, but I hear that the income isn’t that great, and I’m not that creative or decisive, so I’m leaning towards web design. I’m just not that sure, though.
    I’m trying to find out class and skill requirements, annual salary, and maybe more details about each career. Also personal input would be great, too!

  • Scorch Delta-62 November 1, 2013 at 12:14 pm

    I would like to start a web design business but should i focus on mobile site design? I am alot better at mobile site design. Also, how much should i charge?

  • Dom L November 9, 2013 at 12:04 pm

    What are some good international web design blogs? Either for tutorials or for general web design news. I’m looking for either Chinese, Spansih, Italian, and French. Thanks!

  • Lachlan November 11, 2013 at 1:04 am

    I am a 15+ year veteran of print design. I dabbled in some web design and simple HTML programming, GoLive, etc. in the past; however, between having on-site programmers and transitioning to a position with no web design opportunities, the technology has eclipsed me. I am looking to delve back into web design & programming on a freelance basis and I am wondering if there are any good books out there to get me started. Anything from design fundamentals to basics of programming would be fantastic.

  • Michael November 11, 2013 at 4:04 am

    I don’t have experience in web design, but I want to learn to build professional web pages. I know some html, but not much. Is there a cheap, easy to use and professional web design software that I could use easily without paying a lot? Am I asking for too much? Thank you!

  • Scorch Delta-62 November 12, 2013 at 1:48 am

    I’d like to learn web design from home. Is there any software that I can download that teaches how to design a web site.

  • clntvrrt November 12, 2013 at 8:09 am

    Hi all, I would love to get into Web design & digital media and I was wondering what was the best way to learn how to use industry standard software such as: Dreamweaver, Flash & Photoshop in order for me to fulfill that interest?

  • Flash Funk November 13, 2013 at 12:52 am

    I am interested in doing web design. I am a single mother of a 15 month old so my schedule is a little crazy. I heard the Art Institutes arent very good so I want to know, are there any good design schools that offer the web design program that I can do online at home? Please help! Im having a terrible time finding the right school. Thanks!

    I want to learn a bit of web design, but I can’t really enrol in college courses right now. I know there are lots of tutorials available just by Google searching, but are there any that you, personally, like the best?

  • mendhak November 19, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    I am planning to open a web design company. What is the best way to get cases besides craiglist? Any other way can get quality clients?

    Thanks!

  • borabora5524 November 23, 2013 at 1:49 am

    If the answer is multiple then list the best ones you know. I’m not looking to learn quick, and I know how “easy” it is to learn from the internet but I am a lot more comfortable learning from a text book and plan on putting my heart and soul into this. I’m currently majoring in web design and kinda want my own bible of webdesign to reference. I’m looking for anything that explains dhtml or the general design rules of websites. Thank everyone in advance! I truly appreciate it.

  • morbiusdog November 26, 2013 at 2:23 am

    I am self taught in many aspects of web design and would like to switch careers to this field but do not have a degree and I am thinking about going back to school. A local community college offers an associates degree in web design but will that be enough? What about schools like the Devry or International Academy of Arts and Design? What are employers looking for in this field?

  • Rishi November 28, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    With roughly 5 pairs of washers and dryers in an “average” neighborhood with plenty of apartment buildings. And why do you feel that way?
