If it’s good enough for me to tweet it, it’s good enough for me to post about it
As I find myself sharing sites, images, articles, etc., that I enjoy via Twitter, I figured I should probably create a weekly placeholder of those interesting places, here on our own website. Please enjoy these links and I do hope they prove to be useful to you.
Let’s start this post off with a view of some absolutely incredible sidewalk chalk drawings by the aptly named “sidewalk chalk guy”

What the Font
Have you come across a font on a website that you just love? It’s killing you what that typeface is right? Fear no more, simply upload an image of that tasty little font to WhatTheFont! and let their handy little database of fonts do the matching for you.
Wireframes, the backbone of any good website. Smashing Magazine has graciously supplied us, their web minions, with 35 Excellent Wireframe Resources.
Speaking of Smashing, you may know they have a book coming in September (yes this month). At this time they’re taking pre-orders and rumor has it, OnWired may be included in the ‘Learning From Experts: Interviews And Insights’. Not 100% sure as I don’t know if we’ve made the final cut. They did interview us though, for whatever that’s worth.
Website Showcase Galleries
Gallery sites, yes they are a dime a dozen now days. There are, however, more niche design gallery sites arriving at a rapid rate. Two to note are eCommerce Gallery by our Twitter buddy@jamespaden. His focus is to showcase, hand selected, ecommerce websites.
The other is a gallery started by yours truly—meet FooterFetish.com. Footer Fetish is our way of showcasing the lost art of web design footers; ours is hand selected as well—fulfill your fetish.
That’s a wrap folks. See you next week.
