Design Meltdown has been one of those life defining projects. As a result of starting this little pet project I ended up publishing three books, writing for .net magazine for about 5 years, landing a role as content director for HOW Interactive Design, speaking at various web design conferences, and ultimately working full time as a freelance writer/entrepreneur. Not bad for a side project I have basically neglected for the past few years.
For a long time I have had a good vision of what I wanted for the site, but just haven't had the time to make it happen. Well, it took me all of 2011 to get there, but a fresh new face for the site is finally ready to go. This new direction takes the idea of collecting web design samples to a whole new level. In this new direction I take a topic and cover it from head to toe with mountains of samples and topics along the way. To illustrate this, the first collection contains 22 chapters and over 1,800 images all around the topic of e-commerce. And for as much as that is, I think I have only scratched the surface.
I really hope you enjoy this new direction. Head over and take a look!
