Web Design Nomad – Version 1

I decided to share a little but about each version of Web Design Nomad. In our very first version the theme was simplicity and minimalism. I want people to read some articles, copy and paste some code and download some freebies without any distractions. That means no sidebar and no flashy design!

Version 1 Goals

  • Simple / Minimal / Clean
  • No distractions
  • Easy to use
