I use Photoshop cc2015, and I ran into this problem. I deleted all of my default swatches (by pressing option and clicking on the swatches), and then I added all my most used colors to swatches. I clicked the drop down on the top right side of the swatch window, and clicked "save swatches". I then deleted the swatches and made swatches of the print colors I ...

I recommend you don’t mockup the entire website at all. It only leads to misunderstanding and disappointment. Especially when creating a responsive website, which obviously is what is required today. What I do is I start by showing the client an empty website template running on a local Web server on my MacBook, or a private staging server if I’m working ...

Git isn't just for non-binary files. A simple, local (i.e., not necessarily web-based)* GUI frontend for Git (SourceTree seems good) can handle binary files very well, and Git can even do version control on EXIF metadata, among many other things. Git repositories do not have to reside on a central, web-based server; this is the power of Git: it's a ...

Adobe is working on a new software for exactly this purpose. Project Comet is close to the first beta release (based on the increased amount of advertising I've seen in the last month, I'd guess the beta will start in February or March). You can sign up to get updates on the project now (see link above); from what they've shown so far, it will really ...

There is a great and simple tool that I use all the time for design and that allows for code export as well: Webflow but if you want to use the code export feauture you need to buy a monthly/yearly subscription to do so, but its not that expencieve if you do alot of work. Oh and you can convert the code to WordPress pretty easy.

When you are working, that is output. When the well runs dry, that means you didn’t get enough input and/or you are burned out. So when you are not working, go out and hear live music, have interesting conversations over drinks with friends, read non-fiction books about all kinds of topics, and other things that will fill up the well again. Also spend some ...

For all the graphic designers who do web design too. Web design is a specialized branch. It is not an "aditional" one. The same as print design for flat bed press, logo design, motion graphics, etc. This basicly means you need to be... specialized. How do you knock up client design mockups for review My 2 cents from a previous question: How Do You ...

Sketch is good for web design and can export css styles, even though photoshop is the most used program for web designs in my opinion its not the best it encourages designers to design stuff that is not possible or requires hacky css to replicate the effect. Using sketch or illustrator limits designers to produce designs that actually support web ...

I'll second both previous answers, you definitely want to have a seamless transition between design and development. One option is to follow a standard 12 grid PSD template to create layout and then confirm it with a coding compliance tool like https://www.oss-usa.com/web-preflight?promo=web-preflight. Another option is to take something like a WordPress ...

You have two main options as workflow (although as DA01 pointed out, these are just a few of many possible ones): Create the mockups in Photoshop or similar software, and then manually re-create them in HTML/CSS; Create the design directly in HTML/CSS. In option 1, you would basically use the photoshop file as a reference, mostly to calculate distances ...

I'll be honest, that I've bot read through every article, but here is my 5 cents. I have a weird relationship with stakeholders. They LOVE what I do. I problem solve, talk to product owners about design. I make separate presentations to communicate design concepts to them, because I'm a big believer that different people need different communication ...
