Website Design Techniques - Style Tiles

An insight in to how I design websites. The original Style Tile design for the Just a Guy Coding website.

Earlier today I found the original Style Tiles for the JAGC website in one of my design folders, and I thought I’d share them to show how I go about website design from scratch. I love the style tile concept, it provides a great way to kick start design discussions with clients. For small projects they're often all the design you need, and for larger projects they're a good place to start.

Style Tiles are a design concept championed by Samantha Warren. Essentially, they’re swatches for web site design, giving clients a visual insight in to the look and feel of a website; sitting somewhere in between a mood board and a comprehensive layout in the design process. You can find out more about them on

As you can see the final JAGC website stayed fairly true to the Style guidelines depicted, although one or two things were dropped in the final cut.
