Does this sound familiar - You have a great idea, you build that idea, you start looking at the final outcome and think... This looks terrible.

Luckily, you don’t have to be an amazing designer. You just have to be resourceful and understand a couple of simple design tips. The internet is full of free tools and resources to supplement your lack of design skills.

This guide will cover the tools, techniques, and resources I use for designing websites. It is not the end all be all but it is a great guideline for people who struggle with design. We are going to build an application called DesignDo. It will be a collection of design tips and resources (so meta!). Everything we use will be 100% free. To keep our focus on the point of this post, we won’t be using a front end framework. Just static HTML.

Have you ever been bowling with someone who is terrible at it? They put those bumpers in the lane so they can't throw a gutter ball? A CSS framework is your bumpers. It’s almost impossible to throw a “gutter ball” with them. They will give you a great starting point and also provide constraints that a dev who struggles with design needs.
