Finding inspiration has always been part of my work and life. I created Best Web Gallery back in 2006 as my personal bookmark tool where I featured the best design on the web. I've featured more than 1700+ sites in the past years. Today I'm happy to announce the redesign. The new design gives the site a huge facelift and more functional.
Four of my illustrations (Koi, Peacock, Abstract Pheonix, and Japan 11-03-11) are now available at Society6 for sale as print media. They are available as: sketched canvases, posters, T-shirts, hoodies, laptop and iPhone cases. Society6 offers high quality printing on fine material. Or if you are looking for inspiration, check out the website for awesome art works done by artists around the world.
I just wanted to post a quick announcement that I will be speaking at Mad in Spain on June 3rd, 2011 (organized by Domestika). This will their 6th anniversary. Mad in Spain is one of the biggest design conferences in Spain. My presentation topic is about applying art in modern web design. After the conference, I will be spending a week in Barcelona and a week in Paris after that. I will be touring and working during those time.
Recently I've joined a group of artists to support Japan earthquake relief efforts. Each artist contributed a piece of art work dedicated to raise funds. The artworks will be displayed and available for purchase at the To Japan with Love (Facebook event) art show which is organized by Linda Nakanishi. All proceeds from the show will be donated to Canadian Red Cross.
After three and half years, I finally redesigned Web Designer Wall. I launched Web Designer Wall in August 2007 and haven't made any changes since then. Today, I think it is about time to put the previous design in retirement. It is sad to let it go, but I think a redesign is a must because technology is different now (ie. HTML5, CSS3, media queries). So I'm going to highlight some of the features about this new design. I hope you will like this new design as you did in the previous version.
Check out my latest new WordPress theme called Koi (view demo). The design is based on my current theme at N.Design Studio. It has threaded comments, multi-level drop down menus, social media buttons, one sidebar widget and three footer widgets. The theme also includes an option where you can config the menu, favicon, social media buttons, and footer tracking code.
