Favorite Design Resources Roundup

Since I’ll be briefly speaking at the East Central Indiana Social Media Group this week about visual design and layout, I thought I’d share a roundup of some of my favorite design-related resources.

Fonts & Typography


  • ColorSchemeDesigner – Really good, basic website for creating effective color schemes
  • swatchspot.com – A random color scheme creator, really useful for generating ideas
  • Design Seeds – A website devoted to creating color schemes based on photographs, also great for ideas
  • 0to255.com – Great tool for finding different shades of a color


  • Codeacademy – One of the best ways to learn how to read and write HTML, CSS, and even JavaScript
  • Mozilla Thimble – Really great tool for writing and seeing what code does
  • Learning Web Design – Fantastic beginner’s guide for HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and web graphics by Jennifer Robbins

 Miscellaneous and General Resources
