Competing in an online niche is not an easy task and web entrepreneurs are always looking for tools that could get them an advantage that the competition doesn’t have.
If you are a web entrepreneur or your client is one, you need to have the newest and best tools that you can find to increase your chances, or your client’s, of getting results.
I know it takes a lot of time to build your website, develop your products and also do the marketing for your company because I’m faced with these problems too, and I know that the only solution to have success is to get the right tools that will free up time and let you focus on other parts of the business.
In this article you will see tools and apps that will do exactly that and I hope they are what you’ve been looking for.
Usually, design bundles are not free, but Zero Bundle is something different. It is offering 15 packs of design goodies for designers who want to have their tool box filled with useful items.
The bundle is not focused only on one type of design elements. Instead it has icons, fonts, business card templates, Bootstraptor templates and Photoshop actions. For designers who have just started in the business and don’t have a lot of good quality resources, this bundle would be ideal to get.
Also, I have to mention that the following images are just previews of the items, formatted in such a way for the article to load faster. To see the full images, go to Zero Bundle.
A collection of 300 Metro-style icons for designers and developers. Available in PSD (single shape layer), SVG (single icon 512 x 512), EPS, PDF and AI formats. The set also includes Metrize Fonts Icons so you can utilize the icons in your web projects using @font-face, freeing you up to scale and color them on the fly. A simple how-to guide is included as is the necessary scripts for IE7 compatibility.
There is always room for improvement and in a fast developing work environment like a web designer’s, you have to be up-to-date with the latest tools, jQuery plugins and apps that can make your life easier and/or your work better.
In this article you will find a lot of jQuery plugins, as usual I might say, but also various other tools that would improve different aspects of your work.
I believe this article will be received better by web developers due to the large number of apps that can be used by them. Besides these and the always present jQuery plugins, you will also see an extension for Photoshop for those of you who are more designers than coders.
Having a large arsenal of typefaces is important if you are a versatile designer who works on various types of design projects and wants each one of them to have an unique style.
However, picking the right fonts that you will need at a certain time can be quite difficult. If your collection is not curated carefully, you might end up having a lot of unnecessary fonts. Of course, there are a few typefaces that can go with almost every design, but there are also other which could be used for particular projects.
A good advice would be to have installed a basic collection of fonts which can be used on a multitude of projects and keep the special fonts on shortlists rather then installing them all. I used to have 2000 fonts at one point when I was a rookie designer and it was the worst thing possible. I had to browse through the whole collection every time I wanted to search for a font that would apply to my client’s requests. Needless to say, I never browsed more than a hundred of them until I lost my patience.
Also, it is important to classify your fonts properly so it will be easier for you to get what you want, when you want it. Finding a good font after you’ve sent the files to your client might be a little bit late.
Those were my 2 cents on font picking and organizing. What you are interested in is represented by the following free fonts, which I hope will be useful to you.
If you’re looking for the best hosting plan to accommodate your personal website, or one to provide the ideal environment for reselling purposes, you need to exercise caution so that you will get the ideal service for your hosting needs.
My purpose is to help you gain a broad perspective, by outlining the potential benefits of signing with any of these designated industry titans.
KnownHost ranks as number one in my preferences, mostly due to their outstanding reliability. Their 250 servers vouch for a 99.9% Network Uptime Guarantee, and the clients are eligible for an SLA credit in case the company does not meet these expectations in any given month. All they need to do is submit a ticket to the helpdesk within 5 days of the recorded downtime. Hence, the value of the Service Level Agreement Credit increases exponentially as the guaranteed uptime drops in percentage: its maximum is reached if the uptime decreases to as little as 99.0%. That’s confidence.
