One of the essential pieces of managing a website is carefully selecting a hosting provider. We have used Squidix here for the last few years and we’ve been very satisfied with their service. One of the big reasons we chose to continue using them is because a couple of months ago, we had a basic billing issue with our Squidix
hosting account. So, I contacted their customer service team and was very pleasantly surprised with their prompt response. They wanted to ensure our satisfaction so they looped in their CEO so that the issue would be resolved quickly and correctly. We weren’t ever stuck in a call center hoping that someone would pay attention to our issue. We felt like a real person cared that we wanted our issue to be resolved.
Squidix is a young, small company that is headquartered out of Indianapolis. They specialize in many areas of information technology – hosting being one of their top offerings. Their hosting offerings vary from shared hosting options to completely dedicated servers. It’s a great portfolio for businesses of all sizes. Not only do they offer these different plans, but all of their services come with the superior customer service like I mentioned at the beginning of this post.
This recent experience encouraged me to write a post on what you should look for in a hosting provider. I’ll share a few tips below:
The official start of a new season starts later this month. And I don’t know about you, but I’m more than ready to kick Old Man Winter to the curb. Honestly, spring is my favorite season, not only because of the warmer temps but also the refreshing effect it has on my design work. This season compels me to create fresh ideas, and what better what to improve your creativity than with new graphics and fonts to work with?
If you’re looking to refresh your fonts for spring, the March Bundle from TheHungryJPEG can help! It includes more than 38 beautifully-designed fonts plus 9 awesome graphics packs. With some font packs out there, all of the fonts look the same, so you don’t get much value for your money. But the March Bundle has a wide variety of fonts, so no matter what you’re designing for, this font bundle will come in handy. And since you get 47+ fonts and graphics in this bundle, at $29, this bundle is a steal.
So go ahead and get ready for spring–check out the March Bundle now!
Both Shopify and Magento are well-established ecommerce platforms whose business consists of providing online-store operations for every type of interested business owner. Ever since it was launched, Shopify has hit a lucky streak, and boasted more than $10 billion of merchant profit in only 10 years. No wonder its carts are the most popular in the world right now!
The customers are mostly small and mid-sized businesses, but some of them have grown into serious ecommerce players with solid stake in their industries. The reasons why people choose Shopify are good customer service, slick themes, and a user friendly interface.
Magento, on the other hand, is a solidly hosted cart option, backing up some of the most powerful companies in the ecommerce world. Ranking high on the list, this platform dealt with some serious brand iterations (for example, the on-cloud Magento Go which specializes in small retail). Let’s dive right in to our Shopify vs Magento post:
If you’ve been searching for an awesome and professional free resume template, you have come to the right place!
I’ve seen this trend becoming much more popular amongst mobile and web designers. Adobe After Effects is a powerful software suite typically used for adding effects into videos. But it can also create animations for user interfaces in smartphone apps, tablets, and website layouts. It takes a lot of practice but After Effects is quite the interesting program.
These AE animations can be exported as GIFs and used to demonstrate how a UI should behave. Examples may include swiping through a photo gallery, sliding open a menu, performing a search, or anything similar. I’d like to share some ideas about why you might want to learn After Effects and start creating these animations for your digital projects.

Our plan was to interview Matteo for another episode of Webydo’s “Design Talks” but we ended up with something completely different – a hybrid between a serious discussion on the intimacy of in-browser website design and a satire of designers’ obsession with perfectionism.
Sometimes described as the reincarnation of Salvador Dali, Matteo Bologna is the co-founder of the famous NY agency Mucca Design and president of The Type Director’s Club.
