Contribute to The Web Designer
Ready to share your web design knowledge and experience with other web designers?
Our #1 goal is to deliver quality content that is not just information but that can actually be easily used by the readers.
What We’re Looking For
We are not looking for article writers. In order to contribute to The Web Designer, you should be a web designer or developer with experience in what you wish to share with our readers. The article should be not only insightful but also provide a clear next step for the readers.
Before submitting an article, please make sure to review our guidelines and process.
Options for Contributing
Tutorials / How-tos – Walk the reader step-by-step through how to complete a specific process or project.
Ultimate Guides – These long articles dive deep into a particular web design topic giving the reader everything they would need to know or do. These tend to be pieces that readers bookmark for future reference and use.
Checklists – Do you have a process to make an aspect of web design or development easier? Breakdown the process into an easy to implement checklist readers can immediately use.
Opinion Pieces – Share why you use a strategy or approach different than most people and provide a valid argument for why it works better.
Case Studies – What experiments have you conducted and had unexpected results? Share your steps in an insightful way that readers can implement themselves.
List Posts / Roundups – Web designers often have to narrow down plugins, scripts, graphics and other options they have. Help them look at the best options available with options and provide the information needed to make an informed and final decision.
- Articles should be written with your personality. We’re not looking for a dry article that talks at the readers.
