I've added a new Premium Members–only tutorial today on designing Web sites, written by myself! The tutorial takes you through the process I went through to design a set of blog templates to build into WordPress.
As you know, we run a premium membership system here called Psdtuts+ Premiumthat costs $19 a month which gives members access to the PSD files for tutorials as well as periodic extra tutorials ... like this one! If you're a member, you can log in and download the tutorial. If you're not a member, you can of course join today!
A Family of Web site Designs
The tutorial I've added today is called "How to Design a Family of Website Designs" and is a step-by-step follow-along of a set of WordPress blog designs that I recently did. Because the Photoshop skills involved aren't that advanced, I've spent more time talking about why certain things are done.
I'm now working on a PSD->HTML tutorial to follow up on this one, more on that later today. In the meantime these are the designs that the tutorial is on:
So anyhow enjoy the tutorial! Don't forget you can Learn more about Psdtuts+ Premium here. I'll be back posting again in a few hours as I have not one, but TWO big announcements to make today!
And just in case anyone feels like discussing why we have a premium system, to save myself repeating things, just go and read this post! :-)
