If you’re big into CSS, Flash or just design in general, then mosey on over to Smashing Magazine.
Though Smashing Magazine isn’t specifically geared toward the news industry, this is a treasure trove of insight for online news designers. I’ve linked to Smashing before for its excellent compilation of data visualizations — a post I’ve shown to many of the designers here at work and that I believe encompasses the future of news organizations’ Flash graphics.
Today, I found an awesome site that automatically generates those trendy striped backgrounds, an excellent list of usability suggestions (hat tip to NewsroomNext), a neat site for generating Flash charts and a plethora of other items. So go check it out!
PLUS: Here are a handful of particularly useful or enjoyable resources for online design: A List Apart, Vitamin, CSS Zen Garden (there’s a book out too), Kirupa, Flash Kit and –if you need some serious CSS help– the CSS-Discuss listserv run by Eric Meyer.
If you have any others you just can’t do without it, then share em in the comments. Every day is a great day to add Bookmarks…
