Get Your ULTIMATE Starter Pack for Web Designers

Everything you need to get started as a web designer.

Everything you need for web design in one handy little free PDF.

There are tons of resources for web designers out there: books, blogs, classes, and more. (Honestly, it can sometimes feel like there’s too much information.) It’s tricky to navigate—and separate the good from the bad—to find your staple resources.

We feel your pain, and we’re here to fix it.

Download this Ultimate Starter Pack pdf, including the Skillcrush team’s favorite resources for web designers. Rather than having to sift through hundreds of tools, you’ll find a curated and categorized list of mostly free resources.

Download the guide to find:

  • The best resources for picking colors and creating color palettes
  • Where to find gorgeous (free!) stock photos
  • Our favorite font and icon libraries
  • And so much more!

PLUS!! For a limited time only, we’re giving away the Basics of Web Design PDF! 

We used to charge for access to this guide, but we’re giving it away to you FREE as part of this web design starter pack. The Basics of Web Design pdf outlines the building blocks that you need to start designing for the web. We walk you through the six-part design process that we follow at Skillcrush, developed over seven years of working in the biz. Some of the steps are meant to inspire you to find your way, while others provide specific guidelines on how professionals do it.

You’ll learn:

  • Key web design terms every designer should know
  • What you can and can’t control on the web
  • Best practices for organizing your Photoshop files
  • When to use a grid system, and when to break that grid
  • Checklists on how to prepare your designs for code
  • What code you should take the time to learn
  • Why you should never typeset in pure black
