If you been following my twitter @nickla, you should probably know that I’ve been busy working on the redesign of N.Design Studio. After two months of designing and coding, I have finally launched the new design. Now it is running on WordPress 2.8 which supports a threaded commenting system. I will write a design process about the new site. For the time being, please check out the site and let me know your thoughts. You are welcome to post comments on this post or tweet @nickla.
Finally, I’ve joined Twitter (follow me @nickla). At the moment, I don’t really have any tweets yet. The main reason I’ve started Twitter because I’m redesigning N.Design Studio and I want to be able to post updates and in-progress images for readers. Also, if you have a moment, please let me know what kind of tweets best interest you.
Folks! I’m very excited to annouce the launch of my new site — IconDock. It is a icon shop where I sell stock icons and offer free icons for download. The main focus of IconDock is to provide vector icons that you can use for print and web design. You can buy icons individually or a complete set. Even if you are not interested in buying the icons, check out the site anyway to see the Ajax-powered shop with drag & drop features.
I’m very excited to announce the launch of Design Jobs on the Wall. It is a job board mainly focused on design jobs. The pricing for posting a full-time job is only $75 and $50 for freelance jobs. Don’t miss out the opening special; enter the coupon code ‘promo’ to receive 50% off the first job listing. When you post your job openings here, it will be instantly featured on Web Designer Wall as well as other design related websites. Hopefully this board will bring more job opportunities to Web Designer Wall’s readers.
Thanks to Justin from Scheetz Designs for coding the backend of the job board.
Since Web Designer Wall launched last year, the feedbacks been encouraging. Recently though, a lot of complaints have come in that I don’t write frequently enough. Well, writing quality content takes time; plus I have to manage my freelance business and Best Web Gallery. Some people have suggested hiring guest bloggers to step-up posting frequency, which sounds interesting. So, please tell me what you think in the poll below:
