It’s No Secret: I’ve Been Busy

One look at the dust on this blog and it’s obvious that I haven’t had a lot of spare time for personal projects. Over the last year, I’ve been a part of some incredible client jobs (such as version 2.0 of Projecturf), moved home and office, spent nearly every weekend at friends and family events, and recently became engaged to my fiancée. While I’ve had no shortage of new web ideas during this time, I just haven’t been able to work on them — until now.

Design Kindle

Design Kindle is a personal project that I’ve wanted to get off the ground for some time now. The web design community is such a welcoming, sharing group of people and the idea behind Design Kindle is to give back. The site will offer a growing collection of handcrafted, premium quality design files absolutely free. You’ll be able to download files instantly without signing up, joining a membership, or paying a single penny. The initial file types available will be graphics, vectors, and coded websites, but other categories will likely be added in the future. All resources will be free for both personal and commercial use.

I’m very excited to see Design Kindle come to life and the list of free files will continue to expand. Development is nearly finished and the site will launch in early September. To thank those who support the project and help spread the word, there’s going to be an iPad giveaway. Check out Design Kindle for details on how to enter and be sure to follow on twitter for more updates. Also, stay tuned for more personal projects on the horizon.


  1. Very nice Adrian. Seems you’ve beaten us to the punch. We’re actually relaunching Designmoo with a very similar focus, high quality freebies. That’s great! Maybe we could start a freebie network or something. :)

  2. Uh…. OK — just tried to download ” The Mariner’s Tumblog” …but I get a message that the “compressed (zipped) file is empty”.

    What am I missing..??… I see that there have been other downloads according to your stat box. ??

  3. Great job with Design Kindle!! It’s a great success! :D
    I can’t wait to see the re-design of completed – It looks amazing so far!! <3
