Did you know that the Scottish city of Inverness once served as the home of Macbeth (yes, the very same guy who inspired Shakespeare’s story)? Okay, maybe you knew that one. Now, this one may knock your socks off: did you know that Inverness is currently the home of… Speckyboy? Pretty cool, right? Let’s just hope that’s where the similarities end.
So, what is Speckyboy, you ask?
Well, back in October of 2007, the Speckyboy website was launched with the intent of serving as an inspirational hub for designers. As design trends became more advanced and more tools became available to fuel designers’ efforts, things changed dramatically for Speckyboy and evolved into the design magazine you see before you today.
While we never received any prophecy from a trio of witches about the future of this website, we did always envision that Speckyboy would serve the design community as a strong and trusted resource on all things related to current design trends. Our goal is to provide readers with:
- Insightful tutorial and tips.
- Time-saving design and development techniques.
- Collections of helpful resources.
- Inspirational UI and UX designs from around the web.
- Graphic design tutorials.
- Motion design tools and resources.
- Lego-inspired content (yes, that’s for real).
- And more.
We’ve got an awesome team of design experts working day in and day out to ensure that our readers stay attuned to the latest and greatest happening in web design today. If you haven’t read any of our articles yet, what are you waiting for?
