The addition of the popular web browsers (Chrome, Firefox) that lets you download any color of your browser window. An essential tool for working with the colors in the network.When you sit down to design a website you should have on hand a set of proven "tools" to facilitate the work. This will help you work more efficiently and not wasting time on routine activities that repeat for each project. You will be able to focus on what is important and completely surrender to the design.
 
Over the 10 years I've tested a lot of tools that have facilitated me to create web pages. Some of them work, some driving me crazy, and no part can not imagine my daily work. Below I present to you a list of the latter.


look for inspiration

 

Every website design should start from a look for inspiration. You have to open your mind, but at the same time do it consciously, and for that you need to know the trends that currently prevail, and meet the styling industry, for which you design. Once you know it, you break it, but it is important that you do it consciously.
 
Here are two places from which I start searching for inspiration:
 
From up North
Great place where you can find a really brilliant websites. All divided into clear categories allows you to quickly find interesting inspiration.
 
Awwwards
The best inspiration when creating web pages. The works are selected by a multidisciplinary jury, which ensures that they are refined in every respect. Who knows, perhaps your site once here find?

 

Color your world

 

Tools to help you choose the right colors, as well as to work with them:
 
Pictaculous
The project from the creators of MailChimp (a great platform for mailing). Generator color palette different than anything you've ever seen. Simply load a picture and Pictaculous pulls him ready color palette. It is ideal for projects that rely on the image.
 
ColorZilla

Fill the page content

 

 

Every website needs content which is often simply missing at the time of design. With the help comes then the following tools:
 
Depositphotos
Bank of photos (ie. Stock). Very interesting shots, and most importantly, very often you can find great promotions that allow you to buy photos for pennies. Remember that sometimes a picture is able to express more than 1000 words.
 
Iconfinder
Great collection of free and paid icon that will enrich your project and improve navigation. Thanks to an efficient search engine and filters quickly find searched icons. Additionally, you can see icons from the same collection, so keep the consistency of the graphics in your project.
 
LoremPixel
You need to fill a web page sample images? Better tools are not going znajdziesz- category, size, and whether the image is to be color or grayscale, and ... you get great ready images! Believe that it is a much better and more interesting than Panda or Penguin with sample images of Windows.
 
Lipsum
Already you have sample images on the website, but it is also necessary sample content. Lipsum willing to provide it. You can set the number of paragraphs, etc.. Most importantly, this text appears as normal text (in terms of length of words, sentences, etc.), And to its contents just ... does not make sense, so I do not offend anyone.

 

Organize your work

 

Good organization is key to success. The following 3 tools that will help you in this:
 
Dropbox
You need to have a place that will allow you to store all your content, you collect to the project. For this ideal DropBox- all data synced to the cloud, so you can feel safe that you will lose nothing in the event of disk failure. For this ability to share files and collaborate on the project, it makes it a truly indispensable tool.
 
Wetransfer
You need to send a large amount of data to the client? Use Wetransfer. Easily upload a file up to 2GB - without having to install any applications and dodatków- quickly and effectively.
 
EverNote
Lets you take notes that are synchronized to the network. This way you always have access to their thoughts after talking with the customer. You can also share notes, if you work in a team, and many more ...
 

Move your website to network

 

WebWave
Program to create web pages that will allow you to transfer almost any graphic design to the network, creating a great-looking, dynamic website. Most importantly, to use it, you do not need to know any programming language and created websites contain intuitive CMS system that allows you to easily manage the content of the page. This allows you to transfer the finished project to the administration of his client.
 

Create the right atmosphere work

 

Designing is not felling a tree, where we get the ax, show us the tree, and we are going to cut it. To be creative in the design, create the right atmosphere around them, which will stimulate your creativity.
 
For me personally, the most important element of the atmosphere is music. It allows me to cut off from the surrounding world and focus on work. Well, if the music is the object, which does not engage our attention, but lets calm down. Ideally suited to new, previously unknown melodies. But how to take still new bands that accrue to our taste? Here are perfect for 3 applications:
 
Spotify
It lets you listen to music online with virtually no restrictions. Most importantly based on the last tracks tracks suggests what we might like. Additionally, you can turn on the radio favorite band to listen to similar bands. This works really well, and this free version allows you a lot.
 
Open.fm
Radio online - a lot of thematic channels including many Polish music, so if you want to hear something in their native language, it is the perfect choice.
 
cmd.fm
Radio for real old-schoolowców remembering the times of DOS - if this shortcut is not a stranger you, check it!
 
I recommend everyone to check these tools, because they are very easy life and increase productivity. Personally, I can not imagine now without work.
