What’s New in Web Design, Graphic Design, & Typography on the Web

I decided to change the name of my weekly post, “Cool Stuff For Designers” to a name that made much more sense. This will be a weekly digest of the latest resources for Web Design, Graphic Design, & Typography found on the web. My goal is to inspire you, help you learn something new, or just show you something new and cool. This week you’ll learn out responsive web design, as well as drop caps using css styles. You’ll also learn about CSS animations and transitions. There’s a Fireworks tutorial for textures. You’ll also find free textures and icons to use in your design work.
