77 Resources to Simplify Your Life as a Web Designer

As a web designer, achieving efficiency in your workflow will have a significant impact on your success. Fortunately, there are a number of great resources that have been created with the intent of making your life easier and your work quicker and more effective.

Color Tools

Choosing the right color combination can be a difficult task. Try some of these tools to make it an easier decision.

For more color-related tools, see Find the Perfect Colors for Your Website.

Free CSS Navigation Menus

CSS-based navigation menus are used by most websites now, but they don’t need to be created from scratch. There are hundreds of menus already created and available for your use. You can use them as is, or customize them to meet your needs and match your website.

DHTML Navigation Menus

Xtreeme DHTML Menu Studio is a great tool for quickly creating dynamic navigation menus (cost: $49).

Photos for Your Website

Quality images greatly enhance the look and appearance of a website. You can find photos for free or buy higher quality photos for as little as $1.

Icons

Blank WordPress Templates

If you design WordPress themes you can save yourself a lot of time by downloading these blank themes (from Tomorrow’s Laundry). The blank themes provide you with a very basic starting point to work from (UPDATE: the link has been removed because this site is no longer available).


CSS-Based Design Templates

You may be able to save time by starting with a basic CSS-based template. Most websites are built off a one of several different layouts that can be started from a template.

Eric Meyer’s CSS Sculptor

One of the leading CSS designers has created CSS Sculptor to speed up the creation of CSS-based layouts. If you design a lot of websites this $149 software may be very helpful.

Dead Links Checker

Dead links are extremely frustrating to visitors, but checking them manually is not realistic. These tools will do it for you.

Testing in Multiple Browsers

Adequate testing is a part of the design process, and unfortunately that means testing in a variety of browsers.

For more information on this subject see Effectively Testing Your Website in Multiple Browsers.

Validators

Valid code is generally more accessible and it should be one of the first things you test when you encounter a problem.

Scripts

There’s no need to re-invent the wheel. Save yourself some time by using free scripts that others have created.

Favicon Generator

Favicons are very popular right now, and they don’t have to be difficult to create. Try these free tools to create your own and help brand your website.

Fonts

Typography and fonts can make or break a design, but it can be time consuming to try a number of different options. Try some of these resources.

Web 2.0 Tools

Most of the modern web 2.0 and social media sites have several design features in common. Help to make your designs look more modern by incorporating some of these design tools.

Button Makers

Buttons are everywhere. Easily and quickly create your own buttons with these tools.

Gradient Image Tools

Gradient images are another staple of web 2.0. If you don’t have Photoshop there are some other ways to create gradients.

Rounded Corner Boxes

Creating boxes with rounded corners is easy when you have the right tools.

CSS Speech Bubbles

Speech bubbles will give comments and quotes some variety and add to your design.

CSS Tools

If you’re looking to clean, optimize and compress your CSS code, here are some choices.

Miscellaneous

    Excellent list with some very good tools.

  • waqas, September 11, 2007

    please mention any free web serving (with FTP support) website..

  • Ron Pomeroy, September 11, 2007

    Doesn’t anyone see the complete irony here?! *77* ways?!?!?!

    Hilarious!

  • Kevin, September 11, 2007

    This is a great list. Although some of the stuff I have been to individually – like the color choosers, the validators, and the font websites – a lot of the CSS stuff I hadn’t found yet.

  • Jason Bartholme, September 11, 2007

    Great post! The blank WP theme site is an awesome find.

    You included a much broader scope of web design than I did on one of my posts, 101 CSS Resources to Add to Your Toolbelt of Awesomeness.

  • TV Online, September 11, 2007

    Pretty good list, I’m just glad it’s concise.

  • ainstushar, September 11, 2007

    great list

    but you forgot to mention adobe kuler in the color section (that is a wonderful website)

  • Vandelay Design, September 11, 2007

    ainstushar,
    Thanks for visiting! I didn’t forget Kuler, I was just trying to keep it to only a few resources in each category. It’s listed in another article here, Find the Perfect Colors for Your Website.

  • Vandelay Design, September 11, 2007

    Waqas,
    I don’t really have any information on free hosting. I stay away from it myself. Sorry I can’t be more of a help.

  • Vandelay Design, September 11, 2007

    Kevin,
    Thanks for reading. I’m glad you found something new.

    Jason,
    Yes, it was a broader scope. My goal was to find resources of any kind that can save some time in any aspect of the design process. Thanks for visiting.

  • Beetlejuice Online, September 11, 2007

  • LGR, September 12, 2007

    Good list. I had not seen the Tomorrow’s Laundry website. That will come in handy.

    A Favicon generator I like to use is FreeFavicon.com. They have some free favicons there to download as well if you just want something quick and easy.

  • Vandelay Design, September 12, 2007

    LGR,
    Thanks for the additional resource. I’m glad you’ll be able to use the blank WP themes.

  • Stoyan, September 13, 2007

    Some blatant self-advertising:

  • Vandelay Design, September 14, 2007

    Misty,
    I honestly didn’t notice that. I know the content of the list is still relevant, but maybe it’s not up-to-date. It could have been edited from time to time. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Thanks for sharing this awesome article! It will greatly come in handy for a beginner like myself!

  • Cory W, September 15, 2007

  • Michael from Pro Blog Design, September 15, 2007

    Great list, and congrats on getting Dugg! :D

  • Vandelay Design, September 15, 2007

    Cory,
    Thanks for reading. Yes, I usually go to some of those sites when starting a new design to get some color ideas. I feel like it saves me some time.

    Michael,
    Thanks!

  • Vandelay Design, September 15, 2007

    Misty,
    I’m glad your really using some of the resources here. I think you’ll find them to be a big help and to save you some time.

  • Kevin, September 15, 2007

    Thanks! Very nice list… I stumbled it with a thumbs up!

    EzRoundedCorners.com is the only thing I didn’t see up there that saves a lot of time. It’s for images and you can add rounded corners to any image within a couple of seconds. You can also enter in your color number to match the background.

    Keep up the good work.

  • IndianDrugs, March 13, 2008

    How can I be sure of the quality of the pills you offer?

    High quality of the medications we offer is the subject of our primary concern. The logic is very simple: the better the quality of goods is, the more customers we have. Thus we are very attentive and selective in the choice of the supplier, the quality of goods is thoroughly tested and the documentation is closely checked. The medications are manufactured in India by an Indian state licensed, Indian FDA approved company. Each package of the products we sent out includes the Certificate of Analysis obtained from the manufacturer’s laboratory and fully adheres to the Indian law.

    Great post – there definitely is an uprising of nice, clean design with bold use of colour at the minute – especially since the introduction of css. It appears designers have now realised that making content easier to access rather than putting obstacles in their way actually increased satisfaction – of course, they have to look great as well.
