30 Free Script Fonts

Every designer loves to unpack a shiny new font, so we’ve got a massive treat for you with this freebie: not just one delightful new font, but 30!

The foundation of all typography is your choice of font. The font creates the voice of your text, its character, and its personality. For designers who aim to produce robust and engaging designs, a well-stocked font menu is a must.

Of all the varieties of typefaces, the most expressive and characterful are script faces. The hand-drawn, hand-written, and hand-painted qualities make them ideal for designs that eschew the corporate grey of Helvetica.

Responsive Web Design

The Pros and Cons of Responsive Web Design in 2023

Simon Sterne By Simon Sterne  |  6 days ago
 

Responsive web design has been such a success for many web designers that it is generally seen as the default approach to creating a website, but it’s not as cut and dried as all that.

There are many different factors to consider when deciding whether or not to use a responsive approach to designing your websites, such as budget, timescale, and audience.

In this blog post, we’ll weigh the pros and cons of responsive web design to help you make an informed decision.

What Is Responsive Web Design?

In short, responsive web design (RWD) is a modern approach to designing websites that allows the website to respond intelligently to the device on which it is being viewed.

RWD uses techniques like media queries and relative units to create a flexible design that can grow or shrink depending on the size of the screen. Rather than having multiple versions for mobile and desktop, as used to be the case, this type of web design offers an all-in-one solution with a flexible layout that can adapt to various scenarios.

RWD is often confused with mobile-first web design, firstly because mobile-first is a crucial technique of responsive workflows, and secondly because RWD grew in popularity as the number of mobile devices users viewed the web on grew. However, you can have a mobile-first site that isn’t responsive.

Responsive web design essentially eliminates the need to have separate versions of sites for mobile and desktop-style devices.

HTML5 Themes

HTML 5, Bootstrap, and CMS Spectra Integration

DEMO WEBSITE

If you have a website that you designed and coded using HTML5, then you know what a hard job that was to get it the way you wanted. You don’t want to do anything that might change your creation. But you probably tire of having to go in and code all the changes. This is where CMS Spectra can help by letting you use your HTML5 theme as your homepage and then you can use the powerful editors to manage your content. You can also have an active membership platform and all the many features that come with this powerful Content Management System.

I literally spent years designing websites the old way. Then I created CMS Spectra and my life got a lot better. So anytime I design something new, I always think that the best way to go about it is to use the simplest methods to get the best results. By that I mean, using Open Source products that are good quality like CKEditor and elFinder makes the job easier. Of course, there is a lot of searching on Google to figure out how to get them to work together. But, when you get things to work together, you then wonder what else I can make easier.

That’s when I started exploring how I could merge HTML5, PHP8, JavaScript, and CSS together and make the end product user-friendly. So, now CMS Spectra is that end-product. And, if you enjoy building HTML5 websites and you want to make your design lifestyle easier, then this might just be the product you need. Visit the demo site to learn more.
