Startup Framework for WordPress – Drag & Drop Theme

Here’s a fabulous implementation of a Drag & Drop one-page website builder for WordPress. I encourage you to try out the demo: Enter your email, and you’ll be playing with the theme in the amount of time it takes to check your inbox.

Things I love about this theme: Edit your site via the frontend for a true WYSIWYG experience, intuitive controls, clean design elements, and flexibility for adding your own layout and design elements.

Website wireframes: Mockingbird

Mockingbird is an online tool that makes it easy for you to create, link together, preview, and share mockups of your website or application. ~ Mockingbird.

I’ve used Mockingbird, and I can recommend it. Their web app’s minimal approach to design lets you focus on functionality, layout, and user experience without having to nail down what everything is going to look like. This is a great approach to use with clients who have a hard time separating user experience versus design details.

Create a custom PowerPoint template – The Creative Edge

Start in Illustrator by creating a new document: File > New. I recommend starting by setting the dimensions to the default PowerPoint size of 10 x 7.5 inches or 720 x 540px, a 4:3 aspect ratio. Additionally, you should determine whether or not your client is also going to need a 16:9 template, the other standard aspect ratio for PowerPoint.
