Mutt Media Resources

Someone once said that sharing is caring. We couldn’t agree more so here are some of our preferred resources.

Site Development

The most work happens during the Development phase of a web design project. So many elements need to be fleshed out before we begin to build or add content. This is the most important phase of web design – the time when we map out the site’s wireframe, fonts, color selection and all functionality, so it’s important to take adequate time and get it right.

Fonts.com
You’ll have so much fun looking through this site. Fonts for free, fonts for a fee. For both Mac and Windows operating systems.

Kuhler.com is a web-hosted application for generating color themes that can inspire any project. You can experiment quickly with color variations and browse thousands of themes from this online collaborative community – and it’s fun, too! Another resource that explains the importance of color choices and application to your site is available on this wordpress color-selection page.
