The 74 best resources about web design

Expert advice on what to bookmark and follow to help you learn and grow as a web designer on your own.

“You cannot teach, you can only learn.” And, perhaps, now is the time when learning is easy – there are many sources of knowledge. There are even too many of them. Information about web design – read not reread. There are also pre-made selections of the most important resources.

The problem is that they are often written by copywriters who do not deal with practice. Therefore, we went from the opposite direction – we turned to experts and asked them to share the really necessary resources from their practice. The result is a useful selection – a concentrate of vitamins in the world of diluted juices. Enjoy.

What to read, watch and listen to about web design

To make a website on Tilda, you don’t have to be a designer: you assemble a website from ready-made universal blocks and even templates. However, for inspiration and general development, it is worth looking at and reading what and how other specialists are doing: what solutions they use, how they design site interfaces, in what sequence the blocks are placed, how fonts are combined.

For your convenience, we have summarized all resources in tables, sorted by category.
