Hey there, and welcome to the blog! Webitect is just what it looks like – a resource, tutorial, instruction and inspiration blog for web designers and developers. You’ll find everything from PHP tutorials to font collections to articles on how to improve your productivity. The topics vary widely, but they all have one thing in common: they’re all published by designers & developers for designers & developers with an eye towards enjoyment and friendly usefulness that will make your life better.
Anything good has an interesting story behind it, and it’s no different with Webitect. To give you the short story, it was started in October 2008 by Kayla Knight (a freelance designer, developer and blogger who has written for many large blogs like Smashing Magazine, Webdesigner Depot and Six Revisions).
In November 2009 it was shut down and then acquired and reopened in January 2010 by Nick Parsons, the current owner and editor. We continue to enjoy contributing to the community and hopefully making people’s lives better a bit at a time. Of course, Webitect wouldn’t be what it is without the team that helps keep it running! Here’s some of the many authors and contributors that have written for Webitect before:
