It has recently become clear that a huge attack on WordPress websites is underway. The attack is spearheaded by unknown parties but what is known is that more than 90,000 IP addresses are being used to brute-force crack administrative credentials of vulnerable WordPress systems.
Parallax websites seems to crop up more and more as of late. When a client recently asked me about creating a parallax scrolling site I knew that the effect is no longer just for those with particularly nerdy web design inclinations.
This month was all about looking forward to the rest of 2013 so this round up will be all about predictions, tutorials to help you improve your craft, and words on improving your business.
It has been my pleasure to design and develop the website of Montreal’s first podcast network, No More Radio. This project presented a few unique challenges and was a great learning experience.
Now that November has come to a close it’s time to take a look at what’s been happening in the world of web design. I’ll cover some interesting reads but, as usual, let’s start things off with last month’s most captivating websites.
A little over a month ago I saw a post on Web Designer magazine’s website asking for portfolio submissions. I didn’t actually think that I would even hear back from them let alone be included in one of their issues. But it is with great pride and pleasure that I present to you the latest version of the magazine with yours truly on page 97.
October was a very nutty month around these parts, but I still managed to find time to keep up on new & interesting happenings in web design. So let’s jump right into the best of October 2012.

You might have a vague idea of where you’d like to take this design, maybe you even have a more concrete idea of the design you’re doing to create. But without research you don’t have very much on which to base your design, aside from your own ideas and possible misconceptions.
It’s that time of the year again, spring is officially less than a month away and I, for one, can’t wait to shed the heavy layers and don some bright colors.
Fashion runways around the world are teeming with inspiring designs and this time around, the color trends are on the loud and bright end of the spectrum.
