As we posted last week, starting a new online business can be a stressful time for many people, with a large task list and not a lot of money or time to get things started. From business registrations, hosting, domain names, web design, and marketing, any reduction of work can make life significantly easier. One of the easiest ways to jumpstart your progress and get your business online is to use a web template for your design.
We had gathered up 20 high quality PSD templates for businesses, however, today, we have a special freebie for all readers of CreativeFan. We teamed up with GraphicsFuel.com to bring you a professional design studio web template, for free, that you can use in personal or commercial projects.
The design is ready for slicing and coding with all layers grouped and named in a recognizable format, and you can be up and running with your own website in no time.

UK-based design firm Foster + Partners has broken ground for the VietinBank Business Centre in Hanoi, Vietnam, the design firm’s first project in the country.
The new, 300,000 square metre centre, will bring together the Bank’s headquarters, conference, hotel and leisure facilities. The mixed-use development is strategically located between central Hanoi and the airport. The building will incorporate a host of green technologies to make it an energy-efficient facility.
The development will comprise of two angular towers, connected by a seven-story podium building containing conference facilities, luxury shops, cafes and restaurants, and rooftop gardens. The taller, 68-story tower, will provide an energy-efficient new headquarters for VietinBank while the second, 48-story, tower will house a five-star hotel, spa and serviced apartments.
The scheme is designed to reduce the effects of the high levels of humidity in the area using a low-energy, desiccant wheel. The system draws in humidity, separating the water from the atmosphere and exhales hot, dry air, which can then be cooled by ground water and released back into the buildings. The technology is said to be the first of its kind to be used on such a large-scale in the region. A serrated facade, made of projecting fins at 4.5m intervals, provides both shade and a unit of measurement for cellular offices around the perimeter of the floor plate.
Tradition-breaking architectural wonders, such as the Vodaphone headquarters building in Portugal, or provocative and calling advertising, featuring young people riding the graffiti-drawn bike, – these have a great potential in attracting the attention of wide audience – from consumers to designers, architects, and artists. We have included such masterpieces into today’s collection of inspirational ideas in addition to colorful art illustrations, 3D art images, interesting professional photographs and video. Besides, here you will also find the impressive works, resulting from the tight integration of digital image rendering techniques into typography art. Few hi-tech innovations, like an electric bike and QWERTY keyboard for iPhone are also here to give you an insight into today’s technological achievements.
Over the last six years FUEL have produced and published the Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia Volumes I, II and III. Now for the first time the original artworks from these popular books are being exhibited. The ‘Russian Criminal Tattoo Exhibition’ shows 120 original ink drawings by Danzig Baldaev and 16 photographic prints by Sergei Vasiliev.
The drawings were made over a lifetime by prison attendant Danzig Baldaev. Tattoos were his gateway into a secret world in which he acted as ethnographer, recording the rituals of a closed society. The icons and tribal languages he documented are artful, distasteful, sexually explicit and sometimes just strange, reflecting as they do the lives and traditions of Russian convicts.
Skulls, swastikas, harems of naked women, medieval knights in armour, daggers sheathed in blood, benign images of Christ, sweet-faced mothers and their babies, armies of tanks, and a horned Stalin – these are the signs by which the people of this hidden world mark and identify themselves.
Some of the works to be exhibited can be viewed on the archive section of our website here: http://www.fuel-design.com/index.php?menu=5&tattoo=1
