Webydo offers a code-free, fully integrated website design solution for professional web designers. However, what does it take for a designer to start creating sites for their clients? First, after a year, Webydo has become known and widely praised by the creative professional community for their intuitive design studio, feature rich options and ability to continuously develop and add new features for their designers. The best part about all of this is that there is absolutely no code involved.
Innovation is piped in through the air vents at Webydo because what the designers are able to accomplish in a year has taken other similar platforms twice the amount of time. The latest and most exciting feature update is Webydo’s code-free, Parallax Scrolling Animator. Presently only offered in closed-beta, Webydo is granting access to the first 3,000 designers who sign up. Keep in mind that this is a hot feature and picking up a lot of attention and invites are running out quick, so grab yours before this unique opportunity closes.
Webydo’s mission is to put designers in the driver’s seat of every project or task. Good news for designers is that by adding the ability to create a Parallax Scrolling website with their pixel-perfect animator, they can work independently to create and manage websites for their clients that will meet today’s hottest web design trends. We have seen some big names recently switch over to parallax scrolling such as Puma and Sony. In addition, designers can work on a site to site basis or upgrade their work load by signing up for the team or agency packages. This allows designers to have more control over their client’s websites and growing their design agency.
You can place Webydo in the center of your business so that you have the option to do more in less time. It’s not going to be the run of the mill website creator. Getting starting is more intuitive for the experienced designer thanks to the familiar layout that is akin to that of Photoshop or InDesign. Shortening the learning curve and getting designers creating sites either right from a blank canvas or to take inspiration from one of the readymade designs or layout options.
There are some incredible features within this B2B cloud-based design suit. You will be able to create a great looking website from start to finish without using code. You can also bill your clients within the dashboard. When your clients enter the CMS aspect to make any changes to content, they see your logo thanks to the white labeling option, allowing you to not only brand the dashboard but also help clients to see exactly where they are.
The community is really what makes Webydo so unique. The “Participate” page is where designers can propose features and let the community vote. Within a few weeks, the Parallax Scrolling Animator will also be live, which is one of the hottest trends hitting web design right now. In case you’re not sure of what this is, it allows depth, movement, and animation to be added when a user scrolls down the length of a web page. Providing an almost 3D affect, that started picking up popularity in video games and then taking off in 2013 by the web design community.
Webydo’s closed-beta invites are again available for the first 8,000 designers who sign up and they will have the opportunity to be some of the first to experience the freedom of Parallax Scrolling Animation with Webydo.

Thanks to climate change and a general shift towards eco-living, natural fonts are in high demand right now. We’ve scoured the web to find the best fonts with a natural theme available anywhere, for you to use in your own work. Some are conventional, others are wildly imaginative, but all should serve as a great source of inspiration when creating designs of a natural persuasion. Leaves, logs, trees, beaches, flowers, stones, stars, bugs and even human hair- you’ll find it all, and much more, below.
This ‘submarine’ font is perfect for use in any aquatic design. Complete with little fishies, it’s reminiscent of fish tanks and sea-life centres.
2. Tree Like
Bowed and warped, Tree Like has a really unique look and ties in perfectly with epic high fantasy. Think: Lord of the Rings.
I love this font! Quirky, peculiar and idiosyncratic, it would be perfect for promotion of a really cool, indie band.
4. Apple Tree
Apple Tree manages to look organic, despite its modern, some-might-say futuristic design. It would look great in work based around futuristic methods of sustainability and carbon conservation.
5. Beach Type
Beach Type is a chilled-out, laid-back kind of font. It’s the font you’d expect to appear on a beach bar on some exotic island.
6. Wood 2
Wood 2 has a classic, handmade feel. Characters seem to have been nailed together from bits of old timber. It’s perfect for work with an organic theme.
7. Flowers Cube
Flowers Cube is an embellished version of a classic, angular font. It has a real vintage feel to it.
8. Natural Log
Natural Log’s spindly, hand-drawn aesthetic makes it perfect for designs aimed at children.
9. Flower 3
Simplicity at its best, Flower 3 looks as though it was written with a blade of grass dipped in ink. It’s utterly charming. Perfect in work centred around agriculture and the countryside.
10. Seaweed Fire
Seaweed Fire is spiky, compact and rather dismal, but fantastic all the same. It should be used in anything to do with horror.
11. Charcoal First
Unruly and irregular, with some letters bigger than others, Charcoal First has a definite graffiti-like, urban quality. It looks like it’s been written quickly, possibly on a wall somewhere!
12. Wild Wood
Rooted to the ground and covered in thin shoots, Wild Wood looks like something from a modern fairytale. It has a certain Tim Burtonesque, gothic quality to it.
13. Stone Cold
Grungy and weathered, Stone Cold is abstract, but still easy to read. This font certainly looks better when it’s bigger.
14. Beyond Sky
Beyond Sky is a very feminine, dreamy font. It’s gorgeous and would ideally suit being used in the beauty industry.
15. Wood Sticks
The cartoon-like Wood Sticks font has a cheerful, light-hearted appearance. It would look great on the menu of a vegan cafe.
16. Night Sky
Night Sky is such a fun font, surrounded by stars and crescent moons. Why not use it in a children’s book or on a website aimed at kids?
17. Bingo Star
Stars are tightly clustered together to form the letters of this highly original, delightful font. If you’re looking for a font that’s unique, this is the one for you.
Sleek, slick, cool and highly professional, Earth is a font fit for the ‘space age’. It’s perfect for use on promotional flyers for club nights or modern, dance music events.
19. Galaxy 1
Similar to the Earth font, Galaxy has a real vintage quality. Like the font used in Star Wars, it looks like it has come straight from the 70s, which is great for use in vintage designs.
20. Alpha Woman Hair
You can’t help but laugh when you look at this font. Cheesy and pretty ridiculous, its letters are formed from various hairstyles. Not to be taken seriously, however, it could be used to great effect in a tongue-in-cheek design.
21. Moon Star
Moon Star looks like something from a 60s TV show like Bewitched or The Jetsons. It’s really magical and would fit well with 60s/70s-like vintage designs.
22. Little Insect
So cute, Little Insect is another hand-drawn font ideal for children or companies with a soft, caring image.
23. Animal Caps
Each Animal Caps letter looks like an antique object. While it won’t fit with much modern graphic design, it’s so imaginative; I just had to include it in this list.
24. Sea Dreams
Sea Dreams looks like it’s suffered from a degree of coastal erosion itself. Soft and calming, why not use it on the front cover of a suitable novel.
25. JF Jungle Rock
Chunky characters, shrouded in plants and bugs, JF Jungle Rock looks like something out of a classic, tropical arcade game. It’s certainly got a hint of caveman about it.

Welcome (back) to Photoshop Lady. Thanks for reading!
In this intermediate Photoshop tutorial we will be walking through the making of an interesting, creative advertisement poster. This is what I would consider great for advertising your newest product, or just getting some design practice. I will not be explaining the function of every tool in Photoshop used in this tutorial, instead I will be walking through the design process (if you could call it that, anyway).
Here is our end result:
About the Author
Eli is a young and aspiring web designer from South Australia.
Before starting, you may want to locate some inspiration for your design. Here are just a few great places for finding design inspiration:
1. Setting up the Canvas
When creating a new document (File > New), you may want to use a Preset size. I selected International Paper > A6. This is just for practice, so we want to keep it fairly small and RGB as the color mode.
Resolution should be at 300, unless you want to change it. To fit the document nicely on your screen you will probably have to zoom out to around 33.3% of the document size.
2. Creating a Basic Background
For our basic background we’ll just be using a radial gradient. Locate and get out the gradient tool, then set your settings similar to these:
The colors seen in the above image are: #a2f0e0 and #3793b3. All done? Create a radial gradient in the center of your document. I recommend you draw some rulers onto your canvas so you can find the center easier.
2-2. Additional Background Effects
Now we want to upgrade our basic background a little bit. You can do this by adding a simple texture in there then messing with the layer mode(s) and opacity. First, head on over to Katanaz-Stock on deviantART and download the Light Texture 03 image.
Copy this image onto your canvas, resize/rotate it if you like, then change the layer mode to Multiply and lower the fill/opacity to something very low, 10% for example.
Duplicate your texture layer once, change the layer mode to Screen and put the opacity up to 50%.
Now, we still have a fairly basic background, but it’s much nicer than just a gradient.
3. Choosing your Product
Now you need to decide what sort of product you want to promote in this design. It could be a cell phone, a gaming console, something fashion-related, or anything really. I’ve gone with something a little more unique for this tutorial, a GP2X F-200.
Click the above thumbnail for the fullsize image that we’re using.
3-2. Touching up Product Image(s)
Part of the job is touching up product images and making them suitable for placing in your main design document. As you can see, the image I’ve chosen has some noticeable blotches, blemishes, etc. so let’s try and remove them using the Clone Stamp Tool. There are a few different tools that you can use to remove imperfections, but I’ve found the Clone Stamp Tool works just fine (maybe even best), in a case like this.
If you’re not too fond of what we’re doing in this step, you can of course just download the PSD file at the end of the tutorial and use the cutout, although you won’t have learned much!
After you have touched the image up, we need to cut the product out from the background. Since the product is very light grey on a white background, you can’t simply use the Magic Wand Tool, can you? So we’ll have to use the Pen Tool to make a very clean, precise selection around the device.
Obviously I can’t really walk through you through the entire making of the path, so if you’re a newbie with the Pen Tool and making paths, I recommend you read this advanced tutorial on the Pen Tool.
Optional: after you’re done you may want to add a colorful image into the screen of your product.
4. Product Placement
After you’ve made all of your touchups and cutout your product, copy it over your other canvas. If you’re running a newer version of Photoshop (CS3 I think), you should be able to convert your layer to a smart object, so you will be able to resize it, rotate it and resize it again (over and over) without losing quality.
So, if you’re on a newer version of Photoshop, right-click your product layer and convert it to a Smart Object.
Using Transform Mode (ctrl+t), size your product down to something more appropriate and then position it accordingly. To bring your product off of the background, you may want to apply a basic drop shadow via an Outer Glow layer style.
Duplicate your GP2X layer twice, rotate one -15.0 degrees, and the other 15.0 degrees using Transform Mode (ctrl+t). Position your new duplicates accordingly, and size them down a little if necessary. You have to use your own imagination here.
Both duplicates have a similar Outer Glow layer style applied to them, except using a lower opacity.
5. Abstract Elements
To make our design “pop” we’re gonna use some abstract elements.
Using Cinema 4D I managed to muster up a basic but cool abstract render using the GP2X image as the texture. Using this render we’re going to make our design look a whole lot more interesting.
This is how I made use of the 3D abstract:
1. Start by copying it to your canvas, make a few duplicates.
2. Rotate/resize/position your render(s) underneath the product, then erase away the parts of the render that make the overall design look worse than better.
3. Repeat 1-3 times.
And now I have this:
Now that looks much better! If you look around for some inspiration, or in some magazines for creative cellphone ads, you’ll notice these ads have a similar design style going on. The idea is to get some creative elements behind the product/around the product/maybe on top of the product.
6. Vector Elements
I still think our design is a bit boring, so let’s find some vector stocks. Check out the freebie websites such as Vecteezy and find some vectors. Or you can go to iStockPhoto/Vector Stock/Go Media and get some premium vectors.
To start off with I just used two simple splats with a light, sky-blue color (#87ffff), but it should be very easy to find a free brush that will do the job of these vectors just fine.
Next, I used a set of vector icons that I bought a while back from Vector Stock for just one credit (one dollar!) to place underneath the product. This is what I’ve got:
This may look better or worse in your opinion, so please feel free to do whatever you like with the design to make it according to your tastes.
Note: the icons in the above image have an outer glow applied to them, using a light color and Linear Dodge as the blend mode.
Another note: for some reason I’ve been unable to locate these icons again on Vector Stock, otherwise I would have linked to them. I’m sorry if this is an inconvenience.
If possible, find a large version of the logo that belongs to the product you’re trying to promote here. Copy it onto your canvas and resize it to an appropriate size.
Optional: lower opacity and apply layer styles to add extra effect to the logo.
Next, add in some text describing your product.
Top text, description:
Bottom text, website URL:
The font used here is called Frutiger, it’s a commercial font rather than a free one, so you may want to find a suitable alternative. The text you can see in the above images also have a slight Drop Shadow layer style applied to them.
Finalizing the design is up to you. You need to add your own touches to this design to make it perfect. I don’t think I did anything to it that wasn’t stated in the tutorial! Some ideas would be to change the color of the document using some adjustment layers (add more contrast using levels adjustment, etc.)
A good idea would be to add some more color, so if you like, create a new layer, select a large, soft brush and make a few blobs on your canvas using different colors. Change the layer mode to something such as Color Dodge or Overlay.
