About Design Meltdown

Design Meltdown was originally founded in 2006 during the great CSS gallery boom. Over the years the site has taken on several forms, including being dormant for the last 3 years or so.

Although DMD has been at rest, I (Patrick McNeil), have been hard at work obsessing over web design. During the last 6 years I have published 6 books on the topic. My love for the topic is anything but gone.

In this reincarnation of DMD I seek two main goals. First, to get back to the roots of DMD and publish epic amounts of beautiful work. Second, to embrace the user via a user-centered design methodology that packs the most value as possible into the site. I have the better part of 8 years experience in producing this type of content and I have some really exciting tricks up my sleeve. Stay tuned!
