DAILY NEWS AND REVIEWS OF THE WEB TEMPLATES INDUSTRY
The song says ‘Wake me up when September ends’, but for web designers it’s absolutely not applicable. Why? Because designers cannot be even sleepy in their business – they have to keep finger on the pulse to be in the know of the tiniest changes in web design trends.
Since autumn has come, it’s in your hands to change a color trends destination – use the autumn colors in your designs.
We offer you a piece of autumn web design inspiration – an ultimate set of websites which use the autumn colors (yellow, orange and red) in their looks.
Here are several facts about red color scheme.
First of all, it grabs attention. Web design with red color will always be the first to notice, regardless of its shade.
Secondly, red evokes appetite. Not surprisingly, it’s widely used in food-related business web design as main or complementory color.
Thirdly, having chosen the right shade of red color, you can convey passion, feminity, warmth, coziness or professionalism.
The biggest companies like Coca-Cola, Google, Pinterest, Lego and Virgin use red color as their primary, and the result of the logo impact speaks for itself.
Red varies in shades, but the influence it has – stays.
And speaking of big brands, we’ll actually start with one of them. Check out the first one, KFC website:
Can you imagine a city without outdoor advertising? All those billboards, bus stop posters and posters placed in the subway which we simply cannot avoid while waiting for the next train.
Probably a city without all this stuffing would go plain and dull.
If you think why it became an inevitable part of our big-city life, the answer will pop up in your head immediately: outer advertising is one of the most efficient ones.
There is nothing more influential than an image when a viewer doesn’t choose to see or not to see it. And even if a person gets irritated by what he sees, the subconsciousness will imprint the image of the product and afterwards, he’ll forget the emotions, but remember the brand.
However, even simulating outdoor advertising is still very powerful: people are used to seeing design works in the streets, and the fact that a man’s eye is trained to connect a street billboard with a powerful brand, can play for your good.
If you choose to present your graphic design work (whether you want to showcase your ready work or you need to show your client how his product may look like), one of the best ways to do that is to use mockups.
Here we suggest you to take a look at 15+ free outdoor advertising mockups which you can apply in your work.

Anyone who cares about his content presentation, never underestimates the visual power of pictures. Letters are beautiful, but the most quality content with no image will loose readers to less quality, yet illustrated content.
If you don’t do photography professionally (literally professionally, when you spend days in raw shooting everyone and everything so it would cover the demands of blogging like pictures of wild animals, celebrities, most sophisticated dishes, children or kittens), you have to have your own source of images. If you don’t have one and don’t have a friend who wouldn’t mind sharing the results of weeks-long work with you, you will have to search for images, which would satisfy you both with their content and high quality on the Web. The copyright rules are strict and most of the time you have to pay for really good pictures.
We bet that there are many other ways of spending money on/offline on your mind, and paying for pictures may be not in your budget plan. That’s why we picked the best free image sources which may help you save time on searching on the Web.
Here’s the list
The competition is tough on the web today. That’s why a website with beautiful typography and funny images will hardly leave a lasting impression on users. To win the hearts of the online audience, your website should be designed with style, boast a trendy look and provide its visitors with an array of handy options for better navigation. The theme that we are going to review today features all of the options mentioned above and much more. So, please welcome a freshly designed freebie from TemplateMonster – an OpenCart Theme for Mobile Store.
With so many articles written about web design trends 2015, it’s high time to implement them in practice. This free theme reveals how a modern online store can be designed with style. A clean layout designed in flat style features a tile-based structure, cool animation and easy-to-follow navigation. Sticky MegaMenu and advanced search help you find the desired product with a click. The theme is product-oriented. So, with the help of clever use of white space you can make each item look more appealing to the user.
Each product page features bold images with zoom effect, which allows investigating each gadget in detail. Users can leave reviews and manage star rating on each product page. Together with product details, photos and video overview, at the bottom of each product page there is a slider with related products, which enhances online shopping experience by providing users with a number of alternatives.
This well-balanced design was made fully responsive, crossbrowser compatible and SEO optimized. Valid code, simple yet powerful admin panel and advanced theme options will facilitate theme customization. A folder with detailed documentation on installation and setup was included in the package as well.

The template is intended for developing an electronics online store. However, with some quick adjustments it can also work for any other online store of yours.
Portfolio is more than just a website, or a folder with your works – it’s your face which can make the first impression which, as we all know, lasts long.
Basically this is a non-verbal communication between you as a service-provider and your potential customer, and it’s almost the same as in a usual human acquaintance. Did you know that a person subconsciously determines their attitude to you in the first 0.3 second? It takes a little longer if you offer them your service since they have to find out what you are and what you do, but still a time period of deciding whether they like you or not is desperately small. That’s why having a proper portfolio means so much – it becomes an electronic version of ‘you’ with skills your customer or employer is interested at. So if you are aimed at creating an efficient and beautiful portfolio but you are not a web developer, you may consider using a template for creating one.
Here the best portfolio templates produced by TemplateMonster are listed, check them out – who knows, maybe in the next 34 seconds you’ll see the portfolio template you’ve been looking for in the last several days.
