Prefiltering is a good thing. Having expert people crawling the web and indexing its best resources so you just have to browse through the summaries is a key benefit, no doubt about it. The guys at Fonts 500 have done a terrific job: they surfed an insane number of free fonts repositories, sorted the best available fonts on the overall number of downloads, and then compiled all the results in a slick, crisp interface, making all those packages available at your fingertips. Isn't that great ?

Every website includes a certain part of interaction with the visitor, most often through forms people have to fill in in order to get more info, ask for a quote, get in touch, leave a comment, etc. Designing a form is certainly not what web designers like best. In fact, if you're like me, you should rather hate this step. Whatever I try, my hand-coded forms always looked ugly and amateurish. Until one day, I found this lovely little tool that designs perfect forms: Appnitro's pForm.


One of the most valuable resource for design professionals is typography. However, as a major disadvantage, not only are packages extremely expensive, but also fonts collections are most of the time badly organized, with poor navigation and cluttered previews.

Well, that was the past.

Now that the company is on track and that we have more work we could ever hope, it's time we give back to the community. So, we've decided to start this little blog.

What will you find in there?

Mainly links to free resources, free fonts, free vector and bitmap graphics, free audio clips, free software... Lots of things, but mostly free. From time to time, we may also review more developer-focused material, such as javascript framework extentions, coding techniques, CSS/JS tips, etc...

How often will this be updated?

Ok, we know the question... To be honest, we can't guarantee a 100% daily update. However, we'll do our best to make sure this blog flows and that new and fresh content regularly flies in.

OK, that's all for now, folks. I leave you with the first articles.
