As the days get shorter and the weather gets colder, hibernation mode is upon us. This is the perfect time to get cozy, and queue a few YouTube videos or tutorials to keep you motivated through the winter months.
Once you skip past all the cat videos, there’s a world of web design and development knowledge to explore on YouTube. This list consists of channels covering everything from color theory and creating color palettes, to parallax effect animations. You could even start on the Shopify Partners channel ( 😏 ) and watch our latest webinars with industry experts, such as Chris Coyier, Eva Lotta-Lamm, and Jeffrey Zeldman.
