A Showcase of Beautifully Designed Coming Soon Pages

If you’re launching a new site, product or service, then there’s a huge benefit to building hype and buzz before you launch. It’s something that Apple does extremely well, but you don’t need to be a huge company to be able to pull it off.

Improve your Typography – 20 Exceptional Free Fonts

There is an old saying: “Give a dog an ill name and he’ll soon be hanged”. Transposing this wisdom to the field of website design, it is possible to say that the success/failure of a particular site is predefined by a number of factors, including a domain name, page layout, and even font, chosen for displaying the text on it.
