  1. More tutorials about coding (html5,css,javascript,jquery), snippets and Photoshop goodies.

  2. I love all your post in this site. Actually this site has inspired me to get close with the beauty of web graphics. I would like to see more tutorials for beginners about web graphics. So that i could learn more & try it myself. Lastly, hoping this site become more popular soon. Thanks.

  3. As a freelancer, I would like to see more topic about freelance career, plus more inspirational article about print design.
    congratulations for turning 3 awesome years, keep it up guys.
    thank you. =)

  4. I’d be very happy to see more articles on the topic of dealing with clients. More specifically, articles about contracts:

    1) What to include in such contracts to ensure you’re covered in case of a client backing out or trying to “screw you over”
    2) How to phrase your terms
    3) How to persuade a client when they’re not willing to adhere to the terms
    4) What to watch out for in terms of what *the client* wants to be in the contract

    It would make my day :).

  5. I would like to see more posts for design inspiration and freebies.

    Congrats on the 3yr anniversary and thanks for this opportunity!

  6. I like everything the way it is. I learned alot from Always great articles, tutorials, freebies, give-aways like these HΓ©hΓ©. I’m In!

  7. First, I would like to congratulate you and your team for an awesome job you made for this websites, thank you. Happy 3rd anniversary Naldzgraphics!

    What I would like to see are more tutorials on Graphic Design tools such as GiMP and Adobe Products.

  8. I’d like to see customization options for Android and iPhones. Lock Screen’s, Icons, and Wallpaper. It’d be a nice update.

  9. First of all, I would like to congratulate you and your team for a very good job running this site. I appreciate everything I learned and for all those free stocks I got from this site. BTW, Happy 3rd Anniversary Naldzgraphics!

    I would like to see more tutorials and tips on how to use Graphic Design Tools such as GiMP and Adobe products. And also, more stocks please. πŸ™‚

  10. Hi Naldz,

    Can you feature sites that offer stock photos free for commercial use? Thanks!

    Retweeted your post already! ^^

    Happy 3rd Birthday Naldz Graphics! and many more bdays to come!…^^

    Thank you!

  11. I love all your articles!! they give me so much help and inspiration! i would like you to write more tutorials if possible! Thank youuuu

  12. It’s really hard to say what I’d like to see, cause if I don’t know what I don’t know how will I know I want it. What I will say is I love all the freebie resources you share. The textures, fonts, and brushes especially. Please keep those coming. Thanks for an awesome 1st 3 years!

  13. I want to see new techniques on Photoshop and new tutorials for 2012

  14. First of all, happy birthday! I love your site so rich of great stuff and articles. I’d like to see more tutorials about coding and printing design.

  15. Happy birthday Naldz! I love the site the way it is, but I wouldn’t mind seeing even more resource/tool roundups! I think I’m hopelessly addicted to big, juicy roundup posts, especially anything with the word “template” or “UI” in the title – they’re great for inspiration. I get super excited when I see them pop up in my RSS feed. πŸ™‚

  16. Alternatives to popular softwares… preferably free ones? Hahaha

    Happy Birthday, Naldz Graphics! πŸ˜€

  17. As designers, as time goes by, designing sometimes become a routine to us, especially for us who have never ending jobs coming through every day that all we think of is to clear the jobs as soon as possible by just creating something that looks nice instead of designs that speaks. For example, once we get a brief, we do not even think of how our design can effectively convey the message instead of just being pretty to the eye. The only thing we think is what colors suit this company, what fonts should be used, what style should be used.

    I would love to see a post about “How we as designers should rewind back to the times where we thought more into the message communication part as much as how much effort we put into the design. Like in our school projects or freelance projects before we became full fledged designers working in the industry.” …. “Guidelines on how to go back to focusing more on the thought process of communicating through design instead of just coming up with layouts to clear the jobs on our hands”

    An example that I’ve read is that we should not think of designing something aimed at a particular audience. As a graphic designer, we should create something that speaks to an individual. Something that each individual is able to connect to. We should not just use pastel colors to sell a child product because these are the colors this audience like. Instead, we should think of how each particular child would be able to connect when looking at the design.

  18. I would love to see more architecture post. that’d be awesome

  19. most definitely code tutorials~htmml, css, javascript,and a little php =)

  20. I want to see more tips about how to make an efficient web site, and also more fonts, more tutos, more Naldz Graphics !!
    Regards from France πŸ™‚

  21. I wish there were more tutorials on HTML5 and CSS3 as graphic designers need to know some basic programming.

    Me gustaria que hubiera mas tutoriales acerca de html5 y css3 ya que los diseΓ±adores graficos tenemos que saber programar algo basico.

    Greetings from Peru.
    Saludos desde PerΓΊ.

  22. I’d like to see more stuff available for the frugal/poor designer. I can’t be the only one out there. πŸ™‚

    Maybe feature tutorials using Inkscape or GIMP. Or offer some less expensive (but good) alternatives to popular graphics software (e-hem… Adobe). I know it’s possible to get great-looking stuff using these tools, but it would be nice to see another perspective.

    Congrats on 3 years! Keep up the good work!

  23. Thanks for keeping us informed on so many topics throughout these years! I would like to see more project based design/development tutorials. They could range from beginners to advanced topics that relate back to our everyday work experiences. Like a mini series of classes.

  24. The articles are so helpful!! So am an upcoming Graphic Designer and i would love to read more and learn more detail about Cartooning a Person in both PSD and Al and How you know wat Font is correct for a particular work. because i have doubt in the fonts i choose. Thank you Ronald Bien,Kareen Liez and everybody at
    Naldz Graphics for the shared Info.

  25. i love the site the way it is, but if i had to, i’d love to see more freebies and royalty-free stock art. maybe some more killer brushes and patterns too.

  26. I really like your inspiration posts! Original tutorials are always welcome as well.

    Tweeted @dogfacey

  27. As a graphic design student, Naldz Graphics is definitely one of my favorite graphic design related blog to go to when I would like to read posts on graphic design in general. I would love to read more of advertising related posts since I am interested in that area. I also like to see more of typography related posts since it is a very core element of graphic design. Happy 3rd Birthday to Naldz Graphics!!!

  28. First of all… happy 3rd anniversary!!! πŸ˜€

    I would like to see more stuff about joomla. Most design blogs only talks and focus on wordpress, when actually that could only help us with our own blogs… when you are building a website for someone else that needs some special resources you need to choose joomla.. so thats mostly my job!!! Nowadays there are many and free frameworks to work with for joomla.. probably some ideas/resources/tutorials/tips to rebuild the ugly basic template would be really useful!!! No one else is doing it at the moment!!! πŸ™‚

    Thats all, thank you so much for all these 3 years teaching us some great stuff… for free!!! much appreciated!!! <3

  63. Hello Ronald, congrats on completing 3 years. Although I generally enjoy all educative and inspirational articles over here the only thing that worries me is them becoming monotonous in terms of presentation.

    There is always that image from flickr and a content beside it. Just like you bring innovation to us, I would surely like to see the articles in similar categories being presented in a variety of formats too!

    Rest all awesome as ever!

  72. What good about Naldzgraphics is that they cover almost all of the topics not only about web and graphic design but also beyond of it. One thing that they stand out from the crowd based on my own opinion is that they post articles about cartoon characters and other related things. This is really unusual on other blogs.

    I can’t request for more because I always wait for the next post of this blog since i know they will now fail me. Good luck and more years to come.

  86. Three years is a long time in internet years. Congratulations and many, many more years of success! I first stumbled on Naldz Graphics because of the freebies and subscribed because of the tutorials. Someone else mentioned about interviews with other designers? That would be awesome.
