    What You'll Be CreatingIn this tutorial, I'll show you how to use Adobe Illustrator and Wacom Intuos Pro tablet to design and illustrate a poster for a folk music and poetry show. I'll take you through a couple of interesting and useful techniques; including setting up swatch groups, setting up pressure sensitive brushes that take advantage of the tablet's capabilities, stretching letterforms, and using Adobe Illustrator's effects to roughen and grunge up your poster. 1.

    Rob Go of NextView Ventures makes a great point: saying “It’s been tried before” is a bad excuse to dismiss a product or startup. Rob says: “I’ve said those words before as well, both directly to entrepreneurs as well as in our internal conversations about companies. But I’m convinced that “it’s been tried before” is a terrible way to dismiss a startup idea. The reason is that this statement allows you to be way too intellectually lazy. It essentially says “… I’m just going to assume it won’t work because others before it failed.” Rob says that…

  • Three important points about listening to your customers

    10 Sep 2014 | 6:50 am
    Great list by Braden Kowitz on why you should listen to your customers: Several important points: 1) People love to say they talk to customers but rarely do. And some people talk to a couple customers, feel good about it, and assume their job is done. But the fact is that you have to go after feedback with a club. How do you know if you’re talking to your customers enough? Easy: You’re not surprised by what they say anymore. 2) Hiring a designer will not make you a design-first company. I’ve known lots of business owners who want to “get some design in here” by…

  • How architecture can inform UI design

    bokardo
    2 Sep 2014 | 7:19 am
    It is said that all designers wished they were architects…or something like that. Over at the Percolate blog former architect Melissa Mandelbaum has written Applying Architecture to Product Design: Lesson 1 in which she points out the architectural principle of circulation is pretty much the same thing as navigation in UI design. Mandelbaum writes: “The circulation of buildings not only affects your perception of them, but also your usage and behavior within them. Continuing the apartment example, stairs would likely lead you to go home less frequently than you would if you had an…
  • Why Apple doesn’t do MVPs

    1 Sep 2014 | 10:48 am
    The Biggest Lesson I Learned as an Apple Designer is a thoughtful piece that pushes back on the standard advice given out today of creating an MVP (minimum viable product) and learning as you go. It comes from a former Apple designer, Mark Kawano (who also wrote about Apple’s design culture), and suggests that MVPs just don’t make sense within the Apple process. Instead of “launching and learning”, Apple waits until their products are much more mature and offer a more complete experience: “Waiting to launch a product until its “magical” moment goes…

  • Prototyping For Better Products, Stronger Teams And Happier Clients

    Scott Hurff
    19 Sep 2014 | 6:26 am
    As mobile designers, we have a stark decision to make: do we spend time learning new tools and changing our design processes to create our own transitional interfaces, or are the tools that we’ve been using good enough? There’s an old writing adage that advises writers, whenever possible, to “show, don’t tell” when bringing characters to life. The goal is to reveal the story through the character’s experiences instead of the author’s. When designing mobile products, we share a similar burden. Dammed up inside our heads are creative waterfalls of fresh…

    Having addressed the information architecture1 and the various systems2 of navigation in the first two articles of this series, the last step is to efficiently simplify the navigation experience — specifically, by carefully designing interaction with the navigation menu. When designing interaction with any type of navigation menu, we have to consider the following six aspects: symbols, target areas, interaction event, layout, levels, functional context. It is possible to design these aspects in different ways. Designers often experiment with new techniques3 to create a more exciting…
  • Why Companies Need Full-Time Product Managers (And What They Do All Day)

    Rian van der Merwe
    17 Sep 2014 | 5:54 am
    What is a product manager? What do product managers do all day? Most importantly, why do companies need to hire them? Good questions. The first confusion we have to clear up is what we mean by “product.” In the context of software development, a product is the website, application or online service that users interact with. Depending on the size of the company and its products, a product manager could be responsible for an entire system (such as a mobile app) or part of a system (such as the checkout flow on an e-commerce website across all devices). This is confusing because, in most…
  • Essential Visual Feedback Tools For Web Designers

    The creative process takes a lot of time, and web designers know it. When you factor in feedback from clients, the process takes even longer: numerous emails, revision notes, chats and meetings — that’s what it normally takes to find out precisely what the client wants. Fortunately, today’s web provides various solutions to optimize the communication process. The first web services that allow users to report bugs on web pages appeared several years ago. Since then, tools and technologies have emerged to make the process more convenient and user-friendly. Today’s market…
  • Making Modal Windows Better For Everyone

    Scott O'Hara
    15 Sep 2014 | 4:23 am
    To you, modal windows1 might be a blessing of additional screen real estate, providing a way to deliver contextual information, notifications and other actions relevant to the current screen. On the other hand, modals might feel like a hack that you’ve been forced to commit in order to cram extra content on the screen. These are the extreme ends of the spectrum, and users are caught in the middle. Depending on how a user browses the Internet, modal windows can be downright confusing. Modals quickly shift visual focus from one part of a website or application to another area of (hopefully…

  • Client Education and Post-Launch Success

    16 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    What our clients do with their websites is just as important as the websites themselves. We may pride ourselves on building a great product, but it’s ultimately up to the client to see it succeed or fail. Even the best website can become neglected, underused, or messy without a little education and training. Too often, my company used to create amazing tools for clients and then send them out into the world without enough guidance. We’d watch our sites slowly become stale, and we’d see our strategic content overwritten with fluffy filler. It was no one’s fault but our own. As…
  • CSS Audits: Taking Stock of Your Code

    16 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Most people aren’t excited at the prospect of auditing code, but it’s become one of my favorite types of projects. A CSS audit is really detective work. You start with a site’s code and dig deeper: you look at how many stylesheets are being called, how that affects site performance, and how the CSS itself is written. Your goal is to look for ways to improve on what’s there—to sleuth out fixes to make your codebase better and your site faster. I’ll share tips on how to approach your own audit, along with the advantages of taking a full inventory of your CSS and various tools.

We would regularly produce artwork, put it on the wall, and then gather around to say what we liked and didn’t like. More importantly, we would explain why we felt that way. This structured feedback is called critique. The younger students would often take it personally and sometimes cry hysterically, but it was for the best, because after a few years they would start to produce stellar work and provide excellent feedback. At the time, I didn’t really think about the…

    Jeffrey Zeldman Presents The Daily Report: Web Design News & Insights Since 1995

  • One Hug

    Jeffrey Zeldman
    16 Sep 2014 | 6:15 am
    JUST WEEKS ago, my daughter’s mother moved out of state. The kid’s been having a tough time with it, and with school, and with her upcoming tenth birthday, which won’t work out the way she hoped. And then, over the weekend, her laptop and mine both broke—hers by cat-and-ginger-ale misfortune, mine by gravity abetted by my stupidity. To lighten the mood, this morning broke grey, pounding rain. We pulled on our hoodies, scooped up our bodega umbrellas, and shrugged on our backpacks—hers heavy with school books, mine with gym clothes, a camera, and two busted laptops. We were standing…
  • Online Training to Make Sites and Apps Accessible

    7 Jul 2014 | 9:58 am
    ACCESSIBILITY IS LIKE the weather: everyone talks about it, but not enough of us do anything about it. Austin-based Knowbility is one of the few groups in the world with the commitment and expertise to change this. If enough of us fund their new IndieGogo project, they’ll gain the resources they need to create online modules that teach the world how to make our sites work for people with disabilities. This is a cause any web designer or developer should be able to get behind. I love the web because it is democratic, agnostic, and empowering. Progressive enhancement, responsive design, and…

Founded by my friend and colleague Carole Guevin in 1998, Netdiver was one of the first web ‘zines to seriously explore and promote design and design culture on the web. In its pages, you would discover pretty much everything exciting that was happening in web and digital design, photography, industrial design, and digital filmmaking. Sites as fine (and as different) as Swissmiss and The Great Discontent can trace more than a strand of their DNA back to Netdiver and its creator.

  • The Color Purple

    Jeffrey Zeldman
    10 Jun 2014 | 9:41 am
    WHEN my daughter was little, she used to ask me my favorite color. I was a grownup, and could only supply a grownup’s answer: “I love the way light looks in late afternoon,” I might say. Or, “Red and black can make powerful statements in graphic design.” Grownups don’t have favorite colors. But children do. Rebecca Meyer had a favorite color. It was purple. A color that might be expressed in the hexadecimal language of web design as #663399. As many of you know, Eric and Kat Meyer lost their daughter Rebecca to cancer on Saturday. Rebecca Alison Meyer was a ray of light. She was…

So I was surprised when Troy Dean asked me to talk with him on his WP Elevation podcast. I was sure that he’d confused me with someone else, but he convinced me that he hadn’t and we spent a fun hour talking about designing content/mobile first, why we write content for our clients and ultimately why I don’t use Wordpress. Troy normally hosts video podcasts, but my internet connection is so poor at home that we had to switch to audio only. We…

We narrowly avoid talking about our predictions for the upcoming Apple event and instead discuss how to keep work and home life separate, whether it‘s right to be connected to work outside work hours and how having an office can help with work/life balance. Of course, all of this is just a thinly disguised ruse for what we really want to talk about, Doctor Who. In the after-show section, we look back at Matt Smith’s…

It was a fabulous conference, in an elegant venue, thoughtfully organised by Clearleft and masterfully presented by Jeremy Keith. Every talk was excellent in different ways and all of them had been brilliantly curated by Jeremy, following, loosely in some cases, the theme of ‘Living With The Network.’ I’m writing a new talk and dConstruct was exactly the inspiration I needed.The talks were interesting for lots of reasons. Their content, obviously, but also for how many speakers used a script and,…

  • 9 Fonts Brands Should Avoid in 2014

    Claire Jariss Manlapas
    18 Sep 2014 | 7:40 pm
    Graphic designers use fonts on a daily basis. We have our favorites but we also run away from others. Some fonts have very little recall or have no commercial value, while others have become so popular, they should no longer be used in brand identity. These are some of the fonts that brands should avoid using in their identities and marketing collateral. 1.) Lobster More and more people are starting to get hooked with the Lobster font because of its fancy appeal and ability to adapt to many industries such as food, design, and retail.

I was the one who put in the time. I spent the hours in a dark room with all the stuff that could be until I had the stuff that should be. I was the one who designed five wrong iterations until I got the right one. And it was good. People loved it. And these — these barbarians just stole it. Every last bit. I was real angry.

    Kyle Neath
    9 Aug 2014 | 5:00 pm
    Daniel J. Levitin for the Sunday Review: Our brains have two dominant modes of attention: the task-positive network and the task-negative network. The task-positive network is active when you’re actively engaged in a task, focused on it, and undistracted. The task-negative network is active when your mind is wandering. These two attentional networks operate like a seesaw in the brain: when one is active the other is not. I love this explanation. I often find myself arguing for the power of not (as in, spending time purposefully not accomplishing tasks). American culture does not like this.

Many of my friends have suffered severe emotional damage as a result of defamations posted on the service: it’s not pretty. But more importantly, it seems clear to me this is only the start. You see, I agree with Sarah that Secret will take lives. Not directly, of course. But perhaps in the hands of a bullying teen picking on a severely depressed peer. And maybe that post — that secret, that was the last thing, the thing that made them…

We had an in-house photography department that shot furniture and electronics and the like, and I had to cut outlines around everything so designers could easily isolate things as needed. I'm sure I did thousands of photos. I'm still not a super expert, but I value my Pen Tool skills and end up using them regularly.

    If you find it hard to write articles, blog posts or newsletters, I have a quick tip for you. It will help you write more frequently and in a way that people will understand. Drum-roll please… Write the way you speak Think about it: When you talk, people understand you. They listen to you. You engage them. You don’t get talkers-block either! So, don’t treat your written words differently from your spoken words. Just type them, rather than speaking them. This is the approach I used when I started as a writer and it has never failed me. And yes, the more you do it the better your writing…

But, there’s a point of helping that’s too far, when it could impact long relationships and trust built over one’s entire career.

    Since the beginning of time good storytellers have been the heart and soul of any community. They have enjoyed popularity and sympathy of their fellows, who kept coming for more stories and tales. Little has changed since then. We are still hungry for a really good story. What has changed is the way we reach people and communicate our stories. Storytelling is an art that can be applied to pretty much anything. You don’t necessarily have to be a fiction writer or a travel blogger to make use of good storytelling. And by saying “stories” we no longer mean only words, but a number of media…

  • Importance of Emotional Design in Web Design

    20 Aug 2014 | 7:22 am
    Oftentimes we are trying to create a great user experience. Usually this means smoothing out frustrations where we are actually ensuring good usability and not necessarily a good user experience. If you want to truly ensure your users will be happy to use your website or app you must delight your visitors; the best way to do this is through emotional design. Emotional design, in the simplest of terms, is a design that evokes actual emotions from a user, ideally positive ones like delight, joy or pleasure. It’s design for emotions within your visitors. What’s the Big Deal? Emotional design…
  • 7 Usability Best Practices for eCommerce Product Pages

    Armen Ghazarian
    11 Aug 2014 | 8:26 am
    How much effect do product pages have on conversion rates? Well, it depends. But the fact is that this page is your final chance to make the user buy. It’s here that users expect to find all the information they need to make a purchase decision. And it’s a big challenge for a UX designer, because there is so much information to be delivered in so little space. Probably that’s why most product details pages end up looking cluttered and messy. So it’s crucial to present that information in a way that is most convenient, easy-to-understand and convincing. Here’s where usability…

  • Web Design Isn’t Just About Artistry

    Jacob Gube
    25 Aug 2014 | 3:00 am
    Remember when web designers used to be total nerds? Back in the early 2000s, web design was a technical skill; just getting a site to function was considered an achievement in and of itself, and things like interface design, usability, and UX largely fell by the wayside. But times have changed. In the past few years, something magical has happened: Web designers have stopped being just nerds, and have started becoming artisans. We don’t talk about tech specs much anymore, we talk about "handcrafted code" and "beautiful UIs". We describe ourselves as "code…
  • A List of Free Public CDNs for Web Developers

    Jacob Gube
    18 Aug 2014 | 3:00 am
    Website speed is crucial for developing the best user experience possible, because, well, no one likes to wait for web pages to load. One of the simplest ways for improving the performance of a site is by serving page dependencies like JavaScript libraries and CSS frameworks via a public content delivery network (CDN). A public CDN is a web service that hosts and serves open source projects used for web development (e.g. jQuery, AngularJS, and Bootstrap). Public CDNs allow websites to use their services for free. Here are the best public CDNs for web development. jsDelivr With over 1,000 open…
  • How to Create a Fixed Navigation Bar

    Jacob Gube
    13 Aug 2014 | 3:00 am
    A fixed navigation bar, also referred to as a "sticky" navigation bar, is a toolbar that stays in place while the user is scrolling the web page. It’s a commonly-used site navigation design pattern for displaying a site’s main navigation menu, as well as other essential interface components such as a search box, social media buttons, and notifications. The design pattern guarantees that important interface components are easily viewable and accessible regardless of where the user currently is on a web page. In this tutorial, I’ll walk you through a simple CSS…

Based on our collective first-hand experiences, we’d like to discuss some of the app’s features that help us get our design work done more efficiently. It gets CSS At our company, we mainly use visual design software for web/UI design. This means that we almost always need to be able to convert a static design prototype to HTML and CSS. With Sketch, we’ve found this process to be incredibly easy. The developers of Sketch created the app with CSS in…

    Jacob Gube
    1 Aug 2014 | 3:00 am
    I can still remember how excited I was back in 2008 when I first discovered WordPress (late-adopter, I know). What was particularly impressive for me was that I could change the designs of my WordPress sites with minimal effort. And so the hunt for the perfect theme began! As far as I can recall, there weren’t that many paid/premium themes back then. And, to be honest, I wasn’t even taking the possibility of paying for a theme into consideration (since money was a bit tight) so I was kind of stuck with free themes by default. All was well for a while. My test sites and personal…

For instance, if you were writing a navigation app, it would make sense for you to use the geolocation features of the device and platform. If you were creating an app to help people with a vision impairment, you would want to integrate with any text-to-speech features that were available as well.It's the developers that take advantage of these features that set themselves and their apps apart from the rest.

  • Creating Maintainable WordPress Meta Boxes

    Tom McFarlin
    19 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    Right now, one the most common design patterns - if not the most common design pattern - employed in web development is that of MVC (or Model/View/Controller), but as popular as it is, it's not the only way that frameworks, foundations, and other libraries for are built.Case in point: WordPress uses the event-driven design pattern to power its hook system. And although design patterns are not mutually exclusive, you're more likely to recognize that particular pattern because it's what makes WordPress as flexible as it is.To be clear, this doesn't mean that other patterns aren't in…

  • Simple ways to implement infinite scrolling on your website

    Ezequiel Bruni
    17 Sep 2014 | 1:15 am
    Infinite scrolling embodies one of the ideal attributes of any good design: people can use it without thinking about it. Once you’ve encountered it a couple of times, you forget about it. I’d say that most of us have come to expect certain applications, or perhaps certain kinds of applications, to simply load more content when we hit the bottom of a page. And why not? It’s effective, and often convenient. In some contexts, constantly clicking to see successive pages can quickly become a drag. In these cases, pagination is not a helpful navigation tool, but an interruption to the…
  • The end of the pretentious designer

    Cameron Chapman
    16 Sep 2014 | 1:15 am
    There’s a problem in the design world. It’s not a problem of the magnitude of wage inequality, discrimination in the workplace, or child labor, but it’s a problem nonetheless. It’s the epidemic of pretentious designers. Some are just a little bit pretentious, and do so in a hipster sort of ironic way. And others seem to take themselves entirely seriously, and are apparently unaware of their pretentious nature. In either case, it’s time for this to end. That’s right, I’m calling for an end of the pretentious designer. This isn’t cancer research…

    While opportunities abound, it can be remarkably difficult to begin a freelance career in almost any field online. The initial start-up is very hard work and usually requires the freelancer to spend as much time advertising as they are doing actual work. Which is why it is so incredibly important to have a high quality hosting provider, or weeks worth of work could be wasted on a single hour of downtime. It only takes one mistake at the wrong time to ruin a business plan, so why should a freelancer take the risk on an unreliable provider that may cost them hundreds or thousands of dollars?

    Apple’s UI changes from iOS 7 to iOS 8 are often subtle, yet incredibly extensive. Spacing, positioning, and font sizes and weights were liberally tweaked and adjusted. To our surprise, almost every icon was redrawn as well. Even the lowly chevron and back arrow were reworked. Mercury has released free vector UI kit for iOS 8. This file is compatible with Adobe Illustrator CC and newer. They’ve focused on making this file pixel-perfect. Everything is on a pixel, when possible, so that all assets are sharp and clean. They have also grouped like elements together so that it’s easy for you…

    Adding a Login with Facebook option to your web app is a pain! The process requires multiple requests to the Facebook API, and usually results in a messy callback soup that you get stuck managing. jQuery.fblogin simplifies logging in with Facebook by jQuery. You will need a valid Facebook App Id and the Facebook JS SDK loaded to use the plugin. If you have used the jQuery.ajax() method before then using fblogin should seem familiar.

    Image Comparison Slider is a handy draggable slider to quickly compare 2 images, powered by CSS3 and jQuery. When you create a product page, there are some effective UX solutions that can be used to make the user ‘feel’ the product. A comparison image slider is one of those. If you look at the Sony Ultra HD TV product page, they use this approach to emphasize the difference between their display resolution and a standard one. Google uses it to show how cool is a Google+ Photos filter. Requirements: CSS3 and jQuery Framework Demo: http://codyhouse.co/demo/image-comparison-slider/index.html…

    Jon
    7 Aug 2014 | 12:01 pm
    Jay Baer likes to remind us that: Content is fire, social media is gasoline. But I think there’s something that comes first: The spark that ignites that fire is authenticity, or more specifically, authentic value. After all, not all content burns or even glows. It’s only content that has some real value that matters, has meaning, and thus, has the “fire” or attractiveness to engage others (whether they are prospective clients or customers, friends or collaborators, political constituencies, or whatever.)

    So, you want to give a prospective client a glimpse of what you can do. Perhaps you want to convey the “essence” of the Website or branding campaign you would create if the company hired you. A mood board—a sort-of collage of images, patterns, colors, fonts, and interactive elements—might be just the thing you need to show the client that you “get it.” Some agencies submit sample home-page designs to the potential client. This is a reasonable approach, but bear in mind that if the client hasn’t actually hired anyone to do the job yet, bidding agencies will be armed with very…

  • Canning the “Fold” & Responsive Mania

    Danica Killelea
    1 Apr 2013 | 1:15 am
    CANNING THE FOLD The Myth. If you’re asking yourself what we’re referring to here, the “fold” is a term that was born with the beloved newspaper, and was used to describe the fold line at which a paper cuts off, once folded in half and displayed on a newspaper stand. This term was carried over to web design in the 1990s, and the concept of designing “above the fold” was seen as one of the great challenges of creating a successful website. In this context, the “fold” is the area where the web browser cuts off, just before the user is required to use the scrollbar. Thus, the…

  • How to Build a Stand-Out Brand: Whys and Ways to Stand Out

    Go Media
    19 Sep 2014 | 6:26 am
    More than just a logo. When you think of great products or companies, the visual image that forms in your mind is probably that of their mark; McDonald’s golden arches, Nike’s Swoosh and Coca-Cola’s wave. The inherent value of a quality brand is at the core of everything. At Go Media we believe the process of building memorable brands that last is based on more than just a logo. Taking the time to build a solid brand identity, the heart and soul of your company, is incredibly vital to your company’s growth and survival. Notes William Beachy, Go Media President,…

    Illustrator Poster Design Tutorial With the re-release of our latest, horror-themed, vector set, we felt it was fitting to have an Halloween tutorial. So today, we’re going to work on re-creating this poster for Dracula’s daughter, a fictitious movie from five or six decades ago. Complete Vector Set 23 – Only $15 now The design above was a team effort between Steve Knerem, Jeff Finley, and myself. As you can see, not all the details are historically accurate (actor names, type choices), there are some alignment issues, and a typo, but it’s a good base to start from.

    I marvel that I have two very different offspring.  One, a earthy natural living healing organic woman and the other competitive, all around sportsman, and future US Marine. The almost Marine made the decision to step up and serve his country after September 11 happened.  He was in the third grade.  One fourth of his graduating class in High School joined a branch of service.  I raised him the best way an earth mother could.   From birth, he made his own choices.  He refused bottles, so I was his main food source.  He could skate and roller blade before he could walk.  He was a…

    Have you ever been prompted to speak up and then when you talk, the words rush out in some kind of jibberish that does not resemble what your mind wanted you to say? Two days ago I listened to a speaker give a talk that I had trouble with.  It wasn’t so much the topic, which was confusing to start with.  It was supposed to be a positive talk about how, rather than the doom and gloom predicted for 2012 and the so-called “end times”, he found that more and more Light was evident.  Everywhere he could see were happy people participating in the uplifting of the planetary…

    Just to prove how dangerous I can be editing CSS, I messed up the header in an attempt to remove some of the pink.  I think the color got back at me.  It wants to be here. Pink is not a popular color with websites according to color studies.  But I cheated and grabbed a WordPress theme and this one had lots of pink in it.  I removed most of it and replaced it with green.  Green is a nature color.  It matches the two yellow chairs in the photo on the homepage. Which of course I agonized over. I like the idea of the two yellow chairs placed on the homepage.  I imagine you are sitting…

One thing that I always think of when I am feeling lousy is “Detox.”  My body needs a break from all the toxins I expose my body to. So, I figured I would share some words of wisdom about detoxing. What we want to do is cleanse the body to allow it to perform its best. Then other pieces of our life will fall back into balance. Detoxing is just as important as exercising and eating well. If our organs are healthy and working well, they will…

    Jake Rocheleau

    Advertise here with BSAFree iPhone GUI PSD kits include a lot of the primary elements needed for app design. But sometimes it’s necessary to build your own custom interface elements. I always preferred the older iOS 5-6 UI above the more flat-looking iOS7. Specifically I fell in love with this Microsoft Word app for iPhone created by the very talented Victor Erixon. In this tutorial I want to demonstrate how to recreate a couple of these same MS Word interface elements from scratch.

  • 5 Tips for Beating the Cycle of Perfectionism

    Sara Duane-Gladden
    9 Sep 2014 | 7:57 am
    Advertise here with BSAHave you ever met a designer or developer who wasn’t a perfectionist to some degree or another? It’s understandable that there are probably few of them, as the aim for perfection often differentiates the good designs from the great ones. Making sure that every element is “just so” can keep designers up at night, toiling away. Being a perfectionist has its advantages. It can help you produce amazing works and dazzle clients. It can help you seal the deal with new customers. It can push you to new challenges and new creative heights. Of course, perfectionism also…

  • Simple ways to implement infinite scrolling on your website

    Ezequiel Bruni
    17 Sep 2014 | 1:15 am
    Infinite scrolling embodies one of the ideal attributes of any good design: people can use it without thinking about it. Once you’ve encountered it a couple of times, you forget about it. I’d say that most of us have come to expect certain applications, or perhaps certain kinds of applications, to simply load more content when we hit the bottom of a page. And why not? It’s effective, and often convenient. In some contexts, constantly clicking to see successive pages can quickly become a drag. In these cases, pagination is not a helpful navigation tool, but an interruption to the…
  • The end of the pretentious designer

    Cameron Chapman
    16 Sep 2014 | 1:15 am
    There’s a problem in the design world. It’s not a problem of the magnitude of wage inequality, discrimination in the workplace, or child labor, but it’s a problem nonetheless. It’s the epidemic of pretentious designers. Some are just a little bit pretentious, and do so in a hipster sort of ironic way. And others seem to take themselves entirely seriously, and are apparently unaware of their pretentious nature. In either case, it’s time for this to end. That’s right, I’m calling for an end of the pretentious designer. This isn’t cancer research…

    Today I thought I’d focus on loyal customers and returning visitors, rather than raking in those new visitors and customers. I feel this is a part of the website and online shop optimization that is easily overlooked or even forgotten. Obviously, this is a complete shame, because it’s actually a lot harder to convince people to buy your products for the first time. However, this brings along a whole new problem; how do you get the people who have already bought something from you to buy something again? In other words, how do you create loyal customers? This is what I’ll…

  • Savvii: Expanding our local WordPress hosting options

    Joost de Valk
    11 Sep 2014 | 8:01 am
    We often get questions from people asking about what is “good” WordPress hosting. One of the things we tend to find hard is tell people which hosting company they should use in Europe. Some of the managed WordPress hosting companies out there offer servers in Europe, but their support is primarily American and it almost always shows. About a year ago, we were approached by a very local (to us) new managed WordPress hosting company, Savvii. They’re based in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, which is about 10 km away and they’d started to offer managed WordPress hosting. As…

    Writing a blog post -like all other writing- is a skill. In order to keep your reader interested, you should think about structuring your text and writing in an appealing style. You should help your readers to grasp the main idea of your post by providing headings, subheadings and clear paragraphs. If people understand and like your text, they are much more likely to share, like, tweet and link to your post. And that will increase your rankings! So, in order to improve your ranking in Google, you should definitely try to maximize your writing skills! For some, writing for SEO purposes and…

    During one of our recent projects, we noticed something odd. The website at hand, a shop / blog selling organic products, had over 50% of all pageviews coming from Google Pinterest. Is this really as odd as we felt it was? If you come to think about it, social search has been stealing ground from Google search for years, which gave us Google+, which we didn’t embrace as we had already gotten used to Twitter and Facebook. When I was at a camping site in France this summer, I asked some of the younger people if they were still using Facebook. These boys and girls must have been…

    Call-to-action buttons are known as efficient tools to turn people entering your website by chance into permanent visitors and, therefore, boost its conversion rates dramatically. Designing CTA buttons that would harmonize with any theme (see WordPress templates for some inspiring examples), it’s important to take into account several factors. Particularly their location, dimensions, and, last but not least, color. Although content plays a key role in marketing campaigns, it is a visual aspect of websites that produces the first impression on its visitors and influences their decision…

    WordPress came out with their latest version today, which is casually dubbed as Benny named after jazz musician Benny Goodman.

    Today is April 4th, or otherwise known as 4.04, which just happens to be the 404 HTTPS error status code for a missing page. We know what you’re thinking, that is a very geeky thing to celebrate, right? Maybe, but we coders like to have some fun with our 404 pages. The W3C outlines a 404 Code as: 404 Not Found The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent. The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently…

    Notifications are one of the most used features when developing a dynamic website. Whether your application is injecting a snippet of HTML in the web page or it's sending the data of a form filled by a user, your application needs to give some feedback to the users. There are a lot of different techniques you can employ to provide feedback to your users such as alert messages and dialog boxes. In this article, I'll explain how you can integrate nice notifications in your web pages through the use of a jQuery plugin called noty.

    Without any doubt Ajax has taken web development by storm and it's one of the most successful paradigms ever. In my article An Introduction to jQuery’s Shorthand Ajax Methods, I discussed some of jQuery's most used Ajax shorthand methods: $.get(), $.post(), and $.load(). They are convenient methods for making Ajax requests in a few lines of code. Sometimes, we need more control over the Ajax calls we want to make. For example, we want to specify what should happen in case an Ajax call fails or we need to perform an Ajax request but its result is only needed if retrieved within a certain…

    AngularJS is a feature-rich framework for creating single-page web applications, bringing all capabilities that one needs for building rich and interactive apps. One of the key features that Angular brings is the support of animations. We can animate a portion of the application to indicate a change occurring. In my last article I covered the support of CSS animations in Angular applications. In this article, we will see how to leverage JavaScript to animate the AngularJS apps.

    Raise your hand if you've never heard the term Ajax. I’ll bet almost all of you have your arms down, close to their body. Ajax, which originally stood for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, is one of the most used client-side methodologies, helping to create asynchronous websites and web applications. Performing Ajax calls using raw JavaScript is of course possible, but dealing with all the different parts of the code can be a pain. This is even more true if you have to support a prehistoric browser like Internet Explorer 6. Fortunately for us, jQuery provides a set of methods that deal with…

But we want to keep users on our pages, and be entertained. This is where embedding videos enters the scene. Videos illustrate our textual content, bring life to it, and are often served by a third party. What more to ask? Well, there’s a hidden price tag: Videos are slow and heavy to download, even when the visitor is not watching them.

With the power of jQuery, it can turn the navigation of a website into a dynamic menu. Although CSS3 can now be used to create dynamic navigation, still, jQuery adds more functionality on the menus. Aside from the dynamic functionalities, the design must also be considered. This is simply because your visitors would probably see it for the first time they…

The process requires multiple requests to the Facebook API, and usually results in a messy callback soup that you get stuck managing. jQuery.fblogin simplifies logging in with Facebook by jQuery. You will need a valid Facebook App Id and the Facebook JS SDK loaded to use the plugin. If you have used the jQuery.ajax() method before then using fblogin should seem familiar. Simply call $.fblogin(options) where options is an object with the desired settings. Requirements: jQuery Framework Demo:…

    Image Comparison Slider is a handy draggable slider to quickly compare 2 images, powered by CSS3 and jQuery. When you create a product page, there are some effective UX solutions that can be used to make the user ‘feel’ the product. A comparison image slider is one of those. If you look at the Sony Ultra HD TV product page, they use this approach to emphasize the difference between their display resolution and a standard one. Google uses it to show how cool is a Google+ Photos filter. Requirements: CSS3 and jQuery Framework Demo: http://codyhouse.co/demo/image-comparison-slider/index.html…

  • Simple ways to implement infinite scrolling on your website

    Ezequiel Bruni
    17 Sep 2014 | 1:15 am
    Infinite scrolling embodies one of the ideal attributes of any good design: people can use it without thinking about it. Once you’ve encountered it a couple of times, you forget about it. I’d say that most of us have come to expect certain applications, or perhaps certain kinds of applications, to simply load more content when we hit the bottom of a page. And why not? It’s effective, and often convenient. In some contexts, constantly clicking to see successive pages can quickly become a drag. In these cases, pagination is not a helpful navigation tool, but an interruption to the…
  • The end of the pretentious designer

    Cameron Chapman
    16 Sep 2014 | 1:15 am
    There’s a problem in the design world. It’s not a problem of the magnitude of wage inequality, discrimination in the workplace, or child labor, but it’s a problem nonetheless. It’s the epidemic of pretentious designers. Some are just a little bit pretentious, and do so in a hipster sort of ironic way. And others seem to take themselves entirely seriously, and are apparently unaware of their pretentious nature. In either case, it’s time for this to end. That’s right, I’m calling for an end of the pretentious designer. This isn’t cancer research…

    Whether you’re a seasoned graphic/web designer, or just a rookie, there is one thing that always stays the same: the difficulty in making up your mind on which themes to use for WordPress projects. In my opinion, that indecision is a thing of the past since Theme X emerged. Designers and developers alike have been rushing head-on to get their hands on Theme.co’s most popular release ever. What so special about X, you may ask? First off, version 2.3.0 has full BuddyPress and WooCommerce integration, not to mention that you also get free updates and a smart plugin that unlocks all sorts of…

  • How to find if Umbraco 7 Debugging is Enabled in AngularJS or Javascript in the Backoffice

    6 Jun 2014 | 10:55 pm
    When creating a new functionality in the Umbraco 7 backoffice such as a property editor or custom section, it is sometimes necessary to print out some debugging information to verify that the models are what you expect. Rather than commenting out your {{myModel | json}} AngularJS bindings, why not simply only show them if Umbraco has debugging turned on? Turns out, this is very easy as Umbraco already has a global ServerVariables collection that you can check: Umbraco.Sys.ServerVariables.isDebuggingEnabled If you want to show/hide information based on that in AngularJS, simply assign it to a…

I found myself in a situation where I needed an edit button on a list of items in an ngRepeat and the edit button needed to pass in its model to the dialogService.  Well, according to the Umbraco 7 developer documentation, the only way seemed to be to tie it to the scope or create a new scope. However, looking through the Umbraco 7 source it turns out there is an additional parameter called dialogData that…

How else are we to ensure trends evolve and continue to keep us interested and excited? UX however, is a strange beast. A place where boundless creativity must be kept in check.

  • HTTPS – a new way to rank?

    Tim Kelsey
    13 Aug 2014 | 4:27 am
    Last week, Google announced that encrypting the data on your website through SSL will now give your site a small ranking boost. But is it an avenue worth exploring? Let’s look at the facts. SSL is an encryption protocol that allows for secure communication between parties over the internet. You can tell if a website is running SSL encryption by looking at the URL in your browser. If it starts with HTTPS, then it’s using SSL. Traditionally, SSL has only been necessary on websites that handle sensitive information such as credit card numbers or medical records. However, with this new…

    At Pronto, we pride ourselves on offering improvements. So before a company becomes a Pronto client, we run their old website through a useful tool called Woorank. Woorank crawls their website and pulls data from various sources looking for common SEO mistakes or other errors that could be affecting the performance of the site. It then gives the website a score from 0-100 based on how well the site is optimized for search. We recently reran some domains hosting Pronto sites through Woorank to see how our clients’ new websites compare to the websites they had before they signed up for our…

  • Lessons Learned: An Intern’s Reflections on Working at Top Left Design

    Kate Hampshire
    14 Sep 2014 | 5:44 am
    Hello, I’m Kate, and for the last three weeks I’ve been working as an intern at Top Left Design. From researching themes for websites, to organising an office surprise party, I’ve done and learned a lot during my time here. So without further ado, here are my top 9 lessons learned while working at Top Left Design. ALWAYS hold down the shift key to avoid picture distortion When attempting to resize an image in Photoshop using the free transform command, use the shift key – otherwise, be prepared for wonkiness. A clean and simple web theme is almost always best. ‘There are…

  • The true importance of subheadings in your blog posts

    Your headlines may be catchy. Your writing may be amazing. Well crafted words, punchy sentences, and amazing insight into the minds of your reader.  But if your blog is longer than 150 words,  you need to add subheadings – or build them in as you go! Big blocks of text can feel like a chore to read People have so much media coming their way that they have to process quickly – they tend to put aside for later anything that will take them more than 30 seconds to process. The solution: Break up your text with subheadings and bullets Copy in a blog shouldn’t go more than 2 paragraphs…

    In this tutorial we are going to look into another HTML5 feature with the download attribute. The download attribute is a way of telling the browser that to download the file it is linking to, this can be a media file or a PDF document or a webpage etc. This is something you used to have to do with a server-side code. For example you will link to a server-side file of force-download.php and pass in an argument of the file you want to download. <a href="force-download.php?file=download-webpage.html">Download Webpage HTML</a> Then on the server-side you will have to get…

    Since HTML5 came into webpages it brought a bunch of new features, the most useful features it brings is the functionality that you would normally use JavaScript for. An very good example of how HTML5 can help us with forms is client side form validation. In the past we would create a form on a page and then setup the JavaScript on the OnSubmit event to then check the values are how we want them to be. The most common query would be to check that all required fields are not empty. if(document.getElementById('username').value == '') { alert('Username can not be empty.'); } If you have a form…

    In the following tutorial we are going to learn how you can use AJAX in WordPress to run your own functions. The way this works in WordPress is by allowing you to attach your own actions that you can access from an AJAX request to change the content on the page. What Is AJAX? Normally on a webpage you have to wait for the server to load the content of the web page, after the load the only way you can change the content on the page is with JavaScript code. JavaScript is a client-side language that will not run any server side tasks, therefore you can not make another request to the server to…

  • UX Essentials: Why Information Architecture Should Always Be Stage One Of The Design Process

    Aaron Gary Brooks
    19 Sep 2014 | 9:56 am
    Define a website or app in its most simple terms and you’re talking about a source of information for people to navigate and interact with in some way. Which means you need to structure this information in an intuitive way that makes every detail accessible – and this is where Information Architecture comes into play. If you’re new to Information Architecture (IA), it’s basically the concept of site structure with a focus on the information of a website or app and the path users take as they navigate. At a first glance this can seem pretty simple for smaller projects,…
  • Boost Your Client’s Conversion Rate With These 7 Form Design Tips

    Grab a piece of paper and scribble down the five things you consider most important to any website design. Hopefully forms made it high on your list of priorities, because whether its a contact page, sign-up form or credit card payment, your client’s income relies on visitors clicking that submit button. Poor form design leads to abandoned shopping carts and traffic walking right out the exit door and you need to work closely with developers to find the right mix between visual impact and performance. So today we’re looking at seven key elements to web forms and how you can boost…
  • 7 Sassy Reasons You Can’t Avoid CSS Preprocessors Anymore

    Aaron Gary Brooks
    15 Sep 2014 | 9:56 am
    CSS preprocessors have been with us for some time now and we’ve moved on from the debate over whether you should be using one one: you almost certainly should. Yet for many CSS coders out there preprocessors are just another item on a long list of things to learn – and there never seems to be enough time. If this sounds like you, you’re not alone. Many other coders out there are fighting the clock and I myself put off diving into Sass (my personal choice of the preprocessors) for way too long. However, my only regret is that I didn’t jump into CSS preprocessors sooner…

  • Using Tabs To Settle The Content vs Little Screen Conundrum

    Aaron Gary Brooks
    10 Sep 2014 | 12:00 pm
    One of the toughest problems we face as web designers these days is creating content suitable for the abundance of screen sizes out there. Sure, we can design responsive websites that adapt to displays and you can explore other avenues like separate mobile sites or native applications. But the issue keeps cropping up – what do you do with all that content? The mobile-first approach is currently our most versatile option, as we welcome Apple’s smartwatch to a wearable market dominated by tiny displays. But this doesn’t help you much if you have a ton of content to start with.

              HTML5 and CSS3 have quickly become buzz words in the web development industry, but why?  This is simply because they both bring vast new capabilities and introduce clean and simple methodologies.  The most exciting new feature that has been added to HTML5 is the assortment of new elements which will make html docs more semantic.  For example, previously when marking up a webpage, people would have to use div’s along with descriptors, such as classes or id’s, in order to specify sections for styling.  With HTML5, this aspect has been simplified…

The main reason why google has added an HTTPS ranking is to ensure higher security, with less breaches, and by doing so websites will gain credibility ultimately increasing the safety of the internet.  So what if you already use SSL verification on pages such as login screens or e-commerce check outs.  Unfortunately thats not enough.

    Every day, we encounter more and more information. It’s estimated that the amount of information on the web doubles every two years, and increases tenfold every five years. How do we keep up? Short answer: we don’t. The number of internet users certainly doesn’t double every two years. As more and more content is created, more and more content is necessarily ignored. This presents a problem for content creators that has come to be known as Content Shock.

      Do iconic brands influence their target market with the colour of their logos? After recently reading Martin Lindstrom's 'Brandwashed' (which is definitely worth a buy), this only served to heighten my belief that colour in branding IS incredibly powerful. It evokes emotional responses and helps existing and potential customers conjure associations with that brand. Of course, some people will affiliate colours with different emotions to others' but, if you look closely at some of the most iconic brands, you will see a strong pattern that simply must count for something.

  • Get More Fans to See Your Facebook Posts With This Easy Fix

    snute@rakacreative.com
    2 Jul 2014 | 6:57 am
    Facebook’s ranking algorithm can both help and hinder their users. If a person has hundreds of friends and likes hundreds of pages, Facebook will filter out some of the content. Instead of acting like a Twitter feed, which displays all posts in real time, Facebook will only show the most popular posts. Get More Fans to See Your Posts For brands that are noticing lower reach numbers, this is part of the problem. Over the past two years, Facebook reach numbers have dropped by over 50%. For users, this means potentially missing posts from their friends and companies they like. Users can bypass…

    Redis is a in-memory key-value storage system. Primary Memory storage size tends to be much smaller than hard disk storage size.

    Recently, I have come across a nifty calendar app called Sunrise Calendar. My first impression was that it works very well with Google Calendars. One of the main features that I look for in an app when it connects to Google Calendars is whether or not you can join a hangout from an event within the app. With Sunrise Calendar, this is accomplished very easily by clicking on the “Join video call” under the Hangout heading at the bottom of the event view. This works perfectly by opening up the hangout video call just as it would if you were viewing the event through the Google…

  • Bootstrap Icon Fonts: 7 Essential Resources

    If you’re using Bootstrap, then you’re most certainly designing responsive layouts. And while responsive design has done wonders for creating mobile friendly web pages, it has also created new issues for designers. One of these issues is the use of icons. The problem with image icons is that they don’t scale well and they’re difficult to manipulate without the help of an image editor. They can also add to the weight of a website and lead to slower load times. The solution? Icon Fonts. Icon fonts are much more scalable and easier to manipulate. As you can see in this…
