Generally I make psd interfaces 1280×1024.

Is this an appropriate size?

Bigger, or smaller? Just wanted to make sure!

Thank you!

I say go smaller, standard size is generally still considered 1024×768. I go for 960 width and larger :)

-Drew

Edit-I usually set up a document that is 960px by 2000px. I set the guides on the width so I know what 960 is, then change the canvas width to 2000px so I have a large canvas to work on and can accommodate most browsers.

975px is what I design at, makes it nice since you can break it up in 12 sections using the rule of thirds

people, do it with 960.gs

I really am I strong believer in knowing your craft, it’s just a fast to write your own CSS if you know what you’re doing.

Eric Meyer on frameworks:

“Which framework is right for you? None of them are right for you, it all depends on the project.”

“If you’re going to use a framework it should be yours, something you created.”

I actually just was commenting on frameworks today, over on the NETTUTS

I make the .psd canvas size 1200×1200 and the actual design is usually 960px wide.

This is really interesting to see what sizes people design to.

I work to make sure the design and at least the top part of essential content fits above the fold of a 1024px by 768px browser. However I have had many arguments with clients who want the page to be full width (liquid), a massive banner picture but still have all the content above the fold so there is no scrolling (impossible).

My rule is to design for the majority which seems to be 1024px by 768px (thecounter.org). Height is not so much of a problem but the edge to edge of my designs are always 980px for now.

yeah I design for 1024 monitors… The “container” does not go wider than 960px so that you can see a bit of background/shadows/etc.. it really depends on the project though, 960 is not for everything :)
