  • Design Patterns: The Observer Pattern

    Tuts+ Code
    Avinash Zala
    17 Apr 2015 | 5:00 am
    Now here I come with one more behavioral design pattern in this series, which is the Observer Pattern. Observer means that someone is looking at your activity, and it may be possible that the observer takes some action depending on your activity. The same concept is applicable to the design pattern as well. We should implement this pattern when we have a one-to-many dependency between our object and one object needs to be changed/notified when any changes are made to any other object.Wikipedia says the same thing in the words below:The observer pattern is a software design pattern in which…

  • Using Sketch For Responsive Web Design (A Case Study)

    Ashley Bennett
    17 Apr 2015 | 6:10 am
    If you’re a member of the web or UI design community, it’s been hard to avoid talking about Sketch1 over the last year. The launch of this design app shook up an industry dominated by Adobe for more than two decades, and it has caused an ongoing debate about whether Sketch is better than Photoshop and Illustrator (and Fireworks2). A longtime Photoshop user myself, I made the switch to Sketch in early 2014 and haven’t looked back. I love certain features of the program, such as the simple interface, file autosave and infinite canvas. However, plenty of other programs out there have…
  • Building A Custom Archive Page For WordPress

    Karol K
    16 Apr 2015 | 6:04 am
    If I were to ask you what the least used default page type in WordPress is, chances are you’d say the archive template. Or, more likely, you’d probably not even think of the archive template at all — that’s how unpopular it is. The reason is simple. As great as WordPress is, the standard way in which it approaches the archive is far from user-friendly. Let’s fix that today! Let’s build an archive page for WordPress that’s actually useful. The best part is that you will be able to use it with any modern WordPress theme installed on your website at the moment. But first,…
  • Putting Mobile Back End As A Service Into Practice (Part 2)

    David Tucker
    14 Apr 2015 | 5:46 am
    Mobile back end as a service (MBaaS) aims at giving app developers the ability to create seamlessly new feature-complete cross-platform native and web applications. In the first part1 of this series, I walked through a messaging application demo powered by the Kinvey application. We explored how to leverage user management, file storage and the data store. To complete the demo, we need to leverage two key pieces of Kinvey functionality: the permissions provided by the data store, and push notifications, which are enabled through the business logic functionality. 2WaterCooler messaging app…
  • An In-Depth Overview Of Living Style Guide Tools

    Robert Haritonov
    13 Apr 2015 | 11:10 am
    Following the market’s demand for minimalistic and consistent UIs, and the growth in modular web development, we tend to pay more and more attention to documentation and the efficiency of designer–engineer workflow with each project we undertake. Also, since the documentation process is often the weakest spot for modern web teams, we’re constantly looking for the right tools to help us. Living style guides help front-end developers transform front-end code bases into well-described pattern libraries with the minimum of effort. But to make them really efficient, we need to choose…
  • Thinking Like An App Designer

    Javier Cuello
    10 Apr 2015 | 4:02 am
    There’s more to designing mobile apps than meets the eye. The task requires a deep knowledge of devices, and it often means changing the way we think — even if that means leaving behind much of what we’ve learned from designing for the web. I started my career like many designers: working on print design projects. Shortly thereafter, I discovered the world of websites, which fascinated me and became the focus of my work for some time. Along the way I learned concepts related to interaction design1 and user experience2, which I hardly knew existed until then. At some point I…

  • Accepting Our Lack of Control

    17 Apr 2015 | 5:30 am
    It’s easy to forget that our users have ultimate control over how they view the web, even though it has been said before. As people making the web, we merely offer suggestions. These suggestions of ours should make it easier, not harder for people to access our content in the manner that best suits them. Over the course of the last year I’ve worked on several projects for a wide array of products and sites. The common denominator across all of them was an end goal of a responsive site. Often that’s where the commonality ended, though. In some situations not everyone agreed or accepted…
  • Coming May 6: Sass Talk

    15 Apr 2015 | 8:23 am
    To preprocess or not to preprocess? Every time we run a piece about Sass (which we’ve done a lot of lately), we get tons of thoughtful comments on both sides of the issue. Here are just a few: There is no ‘dark side’ to pre-processors… Writing CSS Vanilla on a website with a large scale is just asking to be a maintenance nightmare in my eyes. Iain Spad I like writing vanilla CSS. It lets me have an intimate relationship with the code and it means I know everything that’s happening and why. garek007 It’s not just garbage in, garbage out.

  • Lyza Danger Gardner on Building the Web Everywhere: WAI-finding with ARIA Landmark Roles

    9 Apr 2015 | 5:28 am
    Recently, as part of my research for a presentation about web accessibility for non-specialized teams, I asked around about how people were applying the HTML role attribute in their day-to-day web practice. Their answers didn’t surprise me. Many expressed chagrin at their apparent ignorance, admitting they copied and pasted examples a lot. Some had a passing familiarity with a few prevalent roles, but sensed beyond that a gaping chasm of things they didn’t know. The prevailing tone was guilt. It’s not that people don’t care about accessibility, it’s that the topic can feel…
  • 15 Years of Dao

    7 Apr 2015 | 7:30 am
    John Allsopp’s prescient essay is about the tension between the culture of print design and the culture of web design, circa 2000. That tension persists—not just between print and web, but between people who see the web as a publication medium and those who see it as a software development medium. It persists between people who see the web as a media delivery platform and those who see it as a software experience framework. We are still fighting the same fights—not just over text, but also over video, audio, interactive content, CSS minimizers, grid systems, and JavaScript frameworks.

    Localization, the process of optimizing a site or app across differing languages and cultures, goes far beyond basic translation. Actually, translation’s perhaps the easiest part. Sure, sometimes there are so many cultural similarities between the environment that spawned the original product and the target location that only minor tweaking is needed; but western designers and developers aiming to launch in China are facing a minefield of potential localization missteps. In this article, I’ll browse through a few of the major considerations that should be tackled when approaching the…

    Ioanni Mitsakis

    Split-testing is an important task, but one rarely done wholeheartedly. It’s quite remarkable because as a matter of fact it’s a proven way to get you more website traffic and to convert those visitors into loyal readers, customers or whatever you may call them. Which in no way applies to e-commerce websites only. A split test is called A/B testing. For instance, you could test two headlines to find out which one performs better in directing visitors to your article. Likewise, you could put themes or theme variations against each other to see which one appeals better to your audience.
  • Almost OOP: Simple Inheritance with JavaScript

    David Catuhe

    A lot of my friends are C# or C++ developers. They are used to use inheritance in their projects and when they want to learn or discover JavaScript, one of the first question they ask is: “But how can I do inheritance with JavaScript?” Actually, JavaScript uses a different approach than C# or C++ to create an object-oriented language. It is a prototype-based language. The concept of prototyping implies that behavior can be reused by cloning existing objects that serve as prototypes. Every object in JavaScript depends from a prototype which defines a set of functions and members that the…

    Employers ask me regularly if I know of any great designers they can hire. Usually, I suggest that they list their open position over at the Authentic Jobs board, where I’m a member, and then I tweet out the link a few times and mention it to people I know who might be a good…

    This new project from Design Observer, in collaboration with on-demand publishing platform Blurb, seeks to highlight the work that graduating design students put into their thesis books. Despite the fact that they represent countless hours and result in hard-earned expertise, they are too swiftly relegated to archives and libraries where they are seldom, if ever,…
  • Two Articles About Aesthetics

    Khoi
    15 Apr 2015 | 9:48 am
    Here are two superb articles about the role of aesthetics in the design of digital products. The first is from Emmet Connelly, director of product design at Intercom. Connolly laments the recent commoditization of design aesthetics. He argues that, increasingly, products look more and more indistinguishable from one another. When you squint your eyes and…

  • Jeremy Keith’s 100 words 016

    Andy Clarke
    7 Apr 2015 | 10:00 am
    I’ve been enjoying—and a little jealous of how he can write every day— Jeremy Keith’s 100 words series. Today he wrote about A List Apart’s 15 Years of Dao and I could not agree more with what he said here: I fear that today we run the risk of treating web development no different to other kinds of software development, ignoring the strengths of the web that John highlighted for us. Flexibility, ubiquity, and uncertainty: don’t fight them as bugs; embrace them as features. Substitute ‘software development’ with ‘digital product design’ and you…

    Andy Clarke
    7 Apr 2015 | 9:03 am
    It’s amazing to think that John Allsopp’s oft-quoted article, A Dao of Web Design was published fifteen years ago today. A List Apart asked me what John’s article means to me now, but rather than focus on Dao’s flexible design principles, I wanted to talk about a passage that never seems to get a mention.Here’s what I wrote for A List Apart: If you ask many people for a memorable passage from A Dao of Web Design they’ll quote “the ebb and flow of things’ and John’s call for us to “embrace the web as its own medium” but for me…

Trent Walton and Stephen Hay. In a lively and wide-ranging conversation, we talk about ‘designing in a browser’ and whether or not today it’s a given (to some degree or another.) We discuss not showing clients static design visuals and why ‘comps’ in a browser and prototypes should be the first thing that we show our clients. We talk about where graphic design tools now fit into…

    10 Apr 2015 | 11:56 pm
    What if Disney stories had Instagram? Probably not a good idea Instagram has been a huge part of the social media sphere ever since its introduction in 2010. Created by software engineers Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, it gained rapid popularity with over 300 million active users at the end of 2014. It was so popular that social media giant Facebook purchased it for $1 billion in cash and equity. If Disney fairy tales existed in real life, they would probably have Instagram too. Something freelance designer Simona Bonafini illustrated in her series Selfie Fables (which is still ongoing!)…
  • These Japanese Barcodes Are So Kawaii!

    Kevin Mark Rabida
    9 Apr 2015 | 7:15 pm
    In today’s commercial world, barcodes are almost everywhere. Present in every product packaging that we use today, barcodes have become universal with their use in automating supermarket checkout systems. Recently, innovations in barcode technology have made it possible to do more than tagging products. They can also be used to encode music, images, URLs and emails. Barcodes encode data by varying the widths and spacing of parallel lines. At some point, they evolved to rectangles, hexagons, and other geometric shapes which encoded more than their 1-dimensional counterpart. They serve…

  • This Is Your Brain On Drugs—Minimalist Posters by Meaghan Li

    Kevin Mark Rabida
    31 Mar 2015 | 1:04 am
    Despite all the bad effects of drugs both physically and emotionally, there’s no question about the visual stimulation it can give to a user. Something graphic designer Meaghan Li tried to depict in her side project This Is Your Brain On Drugs.  The title is reminiscent of two ad campaigns of the same name by the  Partnership for a Drug-Free America. The two PSAs are large scale anti-narcotic campaigns using a frying egg as a metaphor for the brain getting “fried by drugs”. Meaghan Li’s posters, however, attempt to illustrate the lucid effects of each drug in an…

    This article has been contributed by Prescott Perez-Fox focusing on software tools for designers. You can see my personal software & hardware choices here. Over the years, friends and colleagues in the design industry have come to know me as a rather organised person, one who enjoyed being a systems geek.

    Dylan Stableford of Yahoo News asked me a few quick questions about Hillary Clinton’s logo. What do you think of the logo? It’s an appropriate idea. I’d execute it slightly differently, perhaps by removing the harshness of the angles, or adding more contrast between the red and blue areas. And while there’s been a lot of negative comments on the mark, some people are too quick to knock the work of their peers. I like to remind myself of a few things before being overly critical. What makes a good political campaign logo? It should have the same traits as any good logo…

The way I’ve hopefully managed to do it is by building a much, much lighter bike and by training differently. I’ll just be carrying the equivalent of a 30 litre day pack, but I’ll be out there alone for 50 days.” No-one has gone close to this quick through Africa. It took Robert Knol 70 days in 2011.

    Geoff Graham

    The difference between <html> and <body> is easy to overlook. It seems to be one of those things that falls into the category of trivial. Admittedly, I have a bad habit of applying all global styles to <body> and, when that falls short, I move to <html> without thinking about it. There are differences, however, and it's a good idea to be aware of them regardless of whether we're CSS veterans or rookies. We'll go over those in this post and consider some practical applications where styling one over the other might make sense. How HTML and body are related Consider this…

    Guys. (Literally guys this time, sorry gals.) I don't particularly like clothes shopping. So I don't. 95% of the clothes I own I buy online. But I also like nicely made clothes. It's not a splurge. They last longer, are more comfortable, and end up being a more economical buy. That's why I'm glad there are companies like Mack Weldon that make high quality clothes that used to suck to shop for: underwear, undershirts, and socks. This is what they have to say specifically about their underwear: We thought underwear could be better, so we made it by combining old school quality with new…

    The following a guest post by Andi Dysart and Matthias Christen of Ghostlab. I was pretty impressed when I heard that the newly-released Ghostlab 2 could do this. I think a lot of us developers use Chrome because the DevTools are so good, and it sure would be able to use them in other browsers, even on mobile devices. And why not? Chrome DevTools are a part of Blink, which is open source, right? We just needed a tool to make it happen. Modern desktop browsers offer powerful integrated developer tools that let you get to the bottom of CSS or JavaScript problems quickly. Whether it's Chrome,…

It’s an important question, so take some time to consider your answer: In financial terms, what would happen if you lost your biggest customer or client? Many small business owners are heavily reliant on just 1 or 2 main customers. These major customers often account for a hefty percentage of their income.

You may not be a billion dollar company like Nike or Subway, but that’s no reason why you can’t come up with a great tagline and incorporate that into your logo. Your tagline should be a short phrase that sums up what you do and what makes your company great. It needs…

    Accessibility is not just about meeting the needs of the disabled or catering for edge cases. Accessibility impacts everybody. I have posted about the misconceptions of user experience design and information architecture. Now I want to dispel some myths about accessibility. I dislike the term accessibility. It is an accurate enough term. It just conjures up the wrong preconceptions. When you talk about accessibility people’s eyes glaze over. They are either imagining wheelchair ramps or WCAG checklists. Either way, it does nothing to capture the truth about accessibility. Accessibility…
  • Risk, reward, fear and nurturing a startup culture

    Paul Boag
    7 Apr 2015 | 4:00 am
    Many large organisations are so terrified of risk that it hampers their ability to operate in a digital world. Digital favours smaller companies.

  • Could you really be a UX designer?

    So you think you are a user experience designer? Are you sure? Do you design experiences for users or do you design user interfaces?
  • User experience design is not what you think

    Paul Boag

    User experience design is not the same thing as user interface design. The experience of users happens beyond the screen and in the gaps. As web and mobile designers our job is to build elegant interfaces. Interfaces that are key components in the user’s experience. Interfaces that allow them to get answers to questions or complete critical tasks. Our job is to help them achieve their goal. Great user experiences happen beyond the screen and in the gaps. Gaps between channels, devices and business silos. Tweet thisBut don’t mistake these interactions as the entirety of the users…
  • What are your users saying behind your back?

    We may know user experience is important in theory. But until you hear and see people’s frustration you don’t fully appreciate it. Every organisation claims to put customers at the heart of what they do. They say they want to provide an outstanding experience. But often this is little more than lip service. When a desire to provide a great user experience clashes with cost savings it is user experience that loses.

    Carol Francis
    25 Mar 2015 | 7:26 am
    Infographics have become more and more popular over the last few years – we have finally all realised that the human brain responds easier, quicker and better to descriptive images than to pages of text. This has encouraged the emergence of infographic style web sites where they would have previously been text-heavy. If an association, charity or, in fact, any business, has a lot of information to impart, it is more effectively done through images – and moving images through animations or scrolling effects can capture the attention of visitors even more. The improvements in CSS and…

Defining link types is good for SEO because search engines can use this data to understand your content better. Other web services such as social media platforms, assistive technologies, and language-translating tools stand to benefit whenever you specify appropriate link types in your HTML markup.

    With a little bit of effort, we can make our markup more meaningful. But why put in extra time and resources to implement semantic HTML? Most users don’t read our HTML. And they only care about what’s on the screen. Semantic HTML is really just for machines. They aren’t as smart as you and I, so we need to help them out.

  • 22 Professional Fonts with Web Licensing for 99% Off

    15 Apr 2015 | 8:05 am
    Since the implementation of @font-face, web fonts have become a big deal in Web Design. It’s not so long ago that Web Designers were limited to 5 or so “web safe fonts”, but now the choice is vast. You can’t go using any font in your designs though, you have to make sure the typeface you’re using is licensed for web use. That’s why I figured you might be interested in this latest deal from Design Cuts. At 99% off this offer is unmissable as it stands, but if you’re a Web Designer, the free extended licensing and web fonts included might be right up…

    There is a lot of buzz around the video background trend at the moment, along with video as a marketing tool and short explainer videos that introduce a product or company. In this week’s article Julia Blake takes a closer look at video as a design phenomenon and explains some of the pros and cons of video use in web design. The Video Background Trend Video is all about telling a story, but there are many ways to tell this story in web design. One of such is to use the website background. Video background appeared a popular feature back in 2013, and now it seems only rises in…

  • 20 Web Designs Built With Modular Grid Layouts

    Chris Spooner
    6 Apr 2015 | 12:30 am
    Grids are normally seen as blocky layouts with strict rows and columns, but grids don’t always have to be so structured. Modular grids provide a balanced layout by dividing up your content into equal measures, but the ability to span multiple columns ensures the content appears interesting and dynamic. Modular grids are becoming increasingly popular in web design, often combined with images and bright colours to create a patchwork quilt style layout that neatly presents a large amount of content in a small space. In today’s showcase I provide 20 great examples of websites that are…

  • Design Patterns: The Observer Pattern

    Avinash Zala
    17 Apr 2015 | 5:00 am
    Now here I come with one more behavioral design pattern in this series, which is the Observer Pattern. Observer means that someone is looking at your activity, and it may be possible that the observer takes some action depending on your activity. The same concept is applicable to the design pattern as well. We should implement this pattern when we have a one-to-many dependency between our object and one object needs to be changed/notified when any changes are made to any other object.Wikipedia says the same thing in the words below:The observer pattern is a software design pattern in which…

  • How Google’s mobile-friendly update will affect you (and what you can do about it)

    Andrew May
    16 Apr 2015 | 4:45 am
    If your website, or your clients’ websites are non-responsive, then you only have until April 21st 2015 to make them mobile-friendly. On Tuesday 21st, if your sites aren’t mobile-friendly you can kiss goodbye to Google search engine rankings, and say hello to clients banging on the door demanding to know why their sites just dropped down to page 23. Think we’re exaggerating? Sadly not. Although nothing is certain when it comes to second-guessing what Google will do next, it’s fair to say that the search giant has dropped some hefty hints about its next update.

  • How to use HTML & CSS style tiles to kickstart your design

    Ezequiel Bruni
    14 Apr 2015 | 4:45 am
    It’s been a while since Style Tiles were brought into this world by the genius of one Samantha Warren. For those of you who might have looked at them once, and then forgotten what they are, here’s a quick explanation: Style Tiles are a sort of template that allows you to quickly test and preview various colors, fonts, textures, and other aesthetic style-related options for your designs before you create a high-fidelity mockup, but after the wire-frames are made. They’re meant to be presented to clients, stakeholders, or any other interested parties fairly early in the design process.

    Tom Kenny

    Creative block can be a killer. Just look at these horror stories from real designers: “As soon as I attempt any sort of design work, I have this horrible feeling that I’m not up to it. The creative flow just stops.” “I am struggling with gaining confidence as a designer.” “I often get designer’s block and struggle especially when I come to start a project. I find myself pushing pixels around a screen for a long time and I just can’t find the spark and then I start thinking that perhaps I’m not cut out to be and stay in this industry.” As you’re a designer, you’ve…
  • Defeating Imposter Syndrome

    Tom Kenny
    8 Apr 2015 | 4:05 am
    One of the most crippling things about being a web designer is how we compare ourselves to other designers, and we all do it. Comparing ourselves to others can be a huge source of creative block, lowering our confidence and make doing our work harder than it should be. To show you what I mean, let me tell you my short story of dealing with imposter syndrome. I had some success previously here on Inspect Element, receiving requests to write for the biggest web design blogs and I even wrote for Smashing Magazine who wanted me to write another article, but shortly after, I froze.

  • 5 Ways Writing Helps Your Design Career

    Tom Kenny

    Writing sets you apart from other designers. It is one of the most versatile skills you can possess, yet it is also one of the most underrated and therefore underused. Just the simple fact that it’s underused by most designers means you can use it to get ahead. The New York Times published an article about how writing can improve your general well-being but I want you to see how much of a positive impact it can have on your design career too. “But I’m not a writer, I’m a designer!”, you say.

    Creating visual balance as well as keeping a sense of proportion, to say nothing about naturally accentuating attention on selected elements, whatever the background is, can be achieved through a well-implemented centered layout. This year it is a fresh trend that helps to revamp the appearance of various Uis. What's old is new again. In fact, centered layouts did not drop out of sight; they were just hidden behind lush and content-intensive foregrounds. Although, for the last couple of years, designers one by one went for stretched, full-screen layouts that boldly took up the whole browser…

Even in the digital sphere, this organic texture has found its particular niche. Although, the last couple of years online users lost sight of wooden textures, since artists preferred to leverage more refined, nifty flat graphics.

    You are now 19. A young adult. It’s time for some well informed advice from a reformed screw-up. 19 is an important age. You’re done with school. You must make plans for what will happens next. More importantly than anything, It’s time to cast off the notions that you are a child and need to be provided for. You need to accept that your previous life as a boy or girl is over – utterly – and move forward with confidence into becoming a self reliant, self aware, world dominating hero. I have no regrets. Only slight resentment that my own family did not guide me…

My business had not improved, I was not making more money, I was not in any better shape (particularly compared to my physical prowess of 19 year old me). I was enjoying life abroad as a web designer until I wasn’t. I had flat lined. Plateaued. My life went from fun and interesting to pathetic, boring and predictable.

    An experienced website or mobile app developer can sail through the initial design process, only to have things come to a grinding halt when the time comes to convert his designs into SEO-friendly, cross-browser compatible code. PSD to HTML conversion can be a time-consuming task, and an error-prone one as well for anyone who does not do it on a daily basis. Fortunately, there are a number of companies, and several online or downloadable tools, that can do the conversion for you. Several of the leading PSD to HTML/CSS businesses are listed below, together with a downloadable tool you can use…
  • A Responsive, Magazine-like Layout with Animated Grid

    Ray Cheung
    16 Apr 2015 | 1:55 am
    Today Codrops has shared a Grid Item Animation Layout with us. The responsive layout has a sidebar and grid items that animate to a larger content area when clicked. In the first demo the content area fills the grid and in the second demo, the whole layout moves to the left while the grid item is expanding. The expanding element is not animating in width and height but instead its original dimensions are already of the expanded size and we simply scale it down initially. By setting classes, we control the transitions of all the elements: the grid item elements’ disappearance and the content…

  • Google SEO Update: Your Website MUST Be Mobile-Friendly & How Squarespace Might Help

    JonLeland
    2 Apr 2015 | 5:45 pm
    Having Your Website Be Mobile-Friendly Is No Longer Optional I’ve been writing about how important mobile-friendly websites are for almost two years. Between smartphones and tablets, my website is seeing almost 20% of its traffic come from mobile devices. Industry standard is more like 30% and often more. That should be reason enough to make sure that your site is optimized for “the mobile experience.” However, now, there’s another major reason to address this issue. Google has just announced (in a relatively unprecedented manner, i.e. in advance) that within the new…

    The Social Graph is About Relationships, Not Followers Perhaps the most frequently asked question in the whole social media and online marketing arena is, “Where’s the ROI?” As Gary Vaynerchuk @garyvee points out in the animated, educational story that he tells in the video below, the true answer to this question requires thinking that goes deeper than a financial statement. To make his point, he ends up asking, “What’s the ROI of my mother?” Warning: If “the f-bomb” i.e. “foul” language offends you, you should NEVER listen to…

  • Keywords: You're Doing It Wrong

    22 Mar 2015 | 7:15 pm
    There’s a bit of confusion about how we should be using keywords today. A lot of people believe that keywords should be included as many times as possible on the actual page; and in the meta tag named “keywords”, so that Google can read it, and find out what the website is all about. While this actually *was* the case when search engines were first created, in the last decade or so, the sophistication of the algorithms means that now the meta keywords tag is not used at all. There’s also an outdated notion that keyword density tells search engines that a page is…

    As we are all aware, the mobile market is booming. This has had some implications for digital marketing which is when responsive websites come in handy. How important is it though to create a seamless mobile experience? As more people use smartphones, they adapt to that and expect all websites to deliver that same experience.

    It is now common to see certain elements in a site fixed to a position when you scroll up or down the site e.g. the navigation menu, the header or the sidebar. This allows for the element to be readily available regardless of the user’s position. Called a sticky element, this can be achieved just by using CSS, however, using this method, the effect is not reliable across multiple browsers. That is why we’ve put together a handful of JS libraries and jQuery plugins that will allow you to achieve this particular UX design with little to no hassle. 1. Waypoints Waypoints is a library…

    Jake Rocheleau
    13 Apr 2015 | 6:16 am
    Advertise here with BSAMost people who are familiar with photo editing should know about image adjustments. These are used to affect a photo’s levels in light & color. The only problem with using typical adjustments is that they can damage an image’s pixels permanently. This brief how-to will explain the benefits of using an adjustment layer instead of a typical adjustment. Non-destructive workflow is crucial to becoming a master of Photoshop. We’ll be using many of the same tools and interfaces but they’ll be applied onto a separate layer rather than directly onto…

    13 Apr 2015 | 8:50 am
     It’s awkward writing about something painful while in the process of dealing with the feelings and emotions, the sluggish body and brain shouting out conflicting orders to me.  Whoever I am.  Because at the moment, I’m not sure. When there is loss, like losing something or someone you love, suddenly nothing makes sense, or it never did and this is another wake up call.  To what, I’m not sure.  Worse, is that feeling that nobody gives a damn because really, when you hurt, it’s all your own pain. Nobody can save you.  If they could, we wouldn’t learn anything.  I know…

     If someone were to ask you to make a list of ways you could help change the world for the better, what would you think of? I was inspired by this when a friend asked on Facebook, “If someone gave you lists of 10 small (but definite) things you could do to help change the world, would you?” The response was to be suspicious of the list. Would such a list try to force someone to change their religion?  Inconvenience them?  Whose viewpoint is represented by the list?  I found this fascinating.  What is it that makes us doubt the intent of a list that is supposed to…

     In February of every year since 1992 I remember when I planted my first vegetable garden. It was the last year the ground was thawed enough to be rototilled in a Pennsylvanian winter, at least for our townhouse. We purchased our townhouse in a quiet, small town in upper Bucks County past the hustle and bustle of the Philadelphia area suburbs. Raised on a small horse farm, I watched my mom and dad plant and nurture their own gardens but I was too busy to be interested in what they were doing. Now, in a 3 bedroom, brand new townhouse, with neighbors on each side and a backyard the size of…

     It took the threat of moving my son’s Cheerios to finally uncover the reasons why I wasn’t coping well with his being at Marines boot camp. My sister was the first to realize I was troubled.  Not that my husband didn’t know, or me, but I couldn’t articulate what was bothering me and he is not a mind reader.  I would scold myself every day for being silly.  I’ve had years to get used to the idea that my son wanted, more than anything, to be a United States Marine.  He had years to train me. I’m very close to my son and daughter.  Their happiness…

     Every day, about 20 times per day, I tell myself I HAVE to quit Facebook.  My husband did that awhile ago and thinks I’m crazy to still use it. I tell myself I “need” it for the work I do.  Somewhere in that statement is an opportunity for a therapist to fix me. I was perfectly fine before Facebook. The Internet. Email.  TV news reporters paid to scare the hell out of millions of people.  I read books and cooked pasta with the phone receiver in one ear and the long telephone cord wrapped about my body.  Before that, I spent hours inside a library, or riding a…

  • How to use HTML & CSS style tiles to kickstart your design

    Ezequiel Bruni
    14 Apr 2015 | 4:45 am
    It’s been a while since Style Tiles were brought into this world by the genius of one Samantha Warren. For those of you who might have looked at them once, and then forgotten what they are, here’s a quick explanation: Style Tiles are a sort of template that allows you to quickly test and preview various colors, fonts, textures, and other aesthetic style-related options for your designs before you create a high-fidelity mockup, but after the wire-frames are made. They’re meant to be presented to clients, stakeholders, or any other interested parties fairly early in the design process.

The width of pins are fixed in Pinterest but the height is not.  The idea is that if the images are taller, they will take up more real estate, giving more exposure.

    Dano Qualls
    9 Apr 2015 | 10:30 am
    This post was written by Dano Qualls, a Fresh Tilled Soil apprentice. One of the reasons I love design thinking is its emphasis on rapid prototyping. This helps you pick the right goals and designs early in the process. Getting it right early pays off: what costs $1 to fix in the requirements stage costs $3-6 to fix in design, $10 to fix in coding, and $40+ to fix after release.1 Rapid prototyping helps you answer questions quickly and inexpensively. That’s all pretty standard stuff. What isn’t as intuitive is that you should be explicit about what you’re not testing when you build…

    Being a designer you can never be certain of anything you build, like science, good design is built on uncertainty. Society perceives a lack of confidence in ones own work as a sign of weakness or questioning a tried and tested theory as unthinkable, yet in reality without questioning what has already been discovered or your own work we would still be in the stone age. People accepted that the Earth was the centre of the Universe for hundreds of years until some chap called Galileo came along and challenge it, Ethan Marcotte questioned the idea of a fixed width websites and responsive web…

    Many designers use Photoshop as a graphics editing tool or as a tool for creating website mockups. However Photoshop is primarily meant for digital photo editing. One such area of work is compositing which takes two(or more) photos and combines them together into one photo. Compositing is a difficult skill to pickup but very powerful across many careers. It can be used to create banners, logos, book covers, or even print advertisements. The best way to learn compositing is through repetition and consistent practice.

    Although composition may be the framework of a great design, color is the extra little detail which makes a project feel truly complete. Color schemes can be used to evoke feelings and attitudes about a particular design or piece of content. In the past we’ve covered the use of color in web design and how it plays a role in the final layout. For this gallery I’d like to dive into a more distinct area of the color pool. Pastels are seen as faded colors which don’t have as much saturation. Many times these are used in children’s websites, but they can be found all over…

These methods allow you to conveniently animate an element’s visibility, one of the very reasons I'll use them to build a slideshow. Sure, you could create a slideshow with CSS3, but animating an element’s visibility using JavaScript gives you greater control of its state.

  • Animating Text with Blast.js

    Jérémy Heleine
    9 Feb 2015 | 1:00 pm
    Animating an HTML element with CSS or JavaScript nowadays, with the help of libraries, is more or less an easy task. But you can only animate a full existing element. This means if you want to animate a single word in a paragraph, you have to wrap the word in an individual element (like a span) and then target it accordingly. If you have only one or two span elements like this, it is not a big deal, but what if you want to animate each character in a paragraph? For every character, you will have to create a span, which adds a lot of extra markup and makes the text difficult to edit. That’s…

    A logo is the DNA of marketing. DNA is a molecule that carries genetic information. It is the material that houses the information about how a living thing will look and function.

    17 Apr 2015 | 6:03 pm
    Most applications, either for mobile and tablet or beyond, rely on input from the user at least once. Actually, most of them rely on input from the user most of the time. These users can only give us input via forms and although they have been around for some time now, the majority of designers are still not able to design them properly. There are not many things that annoy me more than forms added to an application just for the sake of it and done poorly on top of all.

  • How Google’s mobile-friendly update will affect you (and what you can do about it)

    If your website, or your clients’ websites are non-responsive, then you only have until April 21st 2015 to make them mobile-friendly. On Tuesday 21st, if your sites aren’t mobile-friendly you can kiss goodbye to Google search engine rankings, and say hello to clients banging on the door demanding to know why their sites just dropped down to page 23. Think we’re exaggerating? Sadly not. Although nothing is certain when it comes to second-guessing what Google will do next, it’s fair to say that the search giant has dropped some hefty hints about its next update.

  • How to use HTML & CSS style tiles to kickstart your design

    Ezequiel Bruni
    14 Apr 2015 | 4:45 am
    It’s been a while since Style Tiles were brought into this world by the genius of one Samantha Warren. For those of you who might have looked at them once, and then forgotten what they are, here’s a quick explanation: Style Tiles are a sort of template that allows you to quickly test and preview various colors, fonts, textures, and other aesthetic style-related options for your designs before you create a high-fidelity mockup, but after the wire-frames are made. They’re meant to be presented to clients, stakeholders, or any other interested parties fairly early in the design process.

    All too often I will run across websites whose meta page titles and descriptions are completely nondescript. Maybe the actual title on the page reads properly when viewing the site, but because of the various platforms available these days to build websites….and trust me when I tell you they are not all created equally….what a viewer sees at the top of the browser tab is….HOME. More importantly, this is what Google sees also! And this “page title” does nothing to please the Google Gods, and ruins your chances of having decent organic placement in search results.

    If you’re a website owner and you’ve never heard of a “robots.txt” file, you’re not alone. A robots.txt file is a text file that gives instructions about your website to web robots (does the term “Googlebot” sound familiar?), officially called The Robots Exclusion Protocol. When a web robot first visits your site and attempts to crawl it and index your pages, it will look for this file for instructions first. If there are pages, files or folders that you don’t want crawled and returned in search result, you would list them in your robots.txt…

    This package is a simple UI enhancement to the Umbraco v7 right-side dialog flyours to allow a content editor to make the dialog bigger or back to normal.  It just gives a bit more room for dialog selections and views.   With the new Document Types as grid editors, it can help to have a little extra room when its available.  It can also be used nicely with the new Inline HTML Help Package I released on Friday.

The automaker will unveil the one off eyewear at the 2015 Shanghai Auto Show.

If I think back there hasn’t been a project or even a day a day in my career when I didn’t have it open and when it wasn’t the center of my design process. Then a funny thing happened a few months ago and everything changed – I was convinced to try Sketch from Bohemian Coding. I had been aware of the app for a while, had downloaded the demo, tinkered around with it and never really gave it much thought again.

In terms of function, they’re incredibly useful — they have enough room to hold all your everyday items, and their location on the body is perfect for quick and convenient access, not to mention weight distribution that allows you to forget you’re carrying anything. Plus, they’re a lot safer for your money in protecting against pick-pockets or purse-snatchers. On paper, fanny packs seem like they could have revolutionized the way the world carries their belongings. The innovators behind the fanny pack may have designed one of the most useful…

    Traffic from mobile devices has been consistently growing over the last few years. It’s a big reason why you should get a mobile solution for your website in place, but there will soon be an even bigger reason to have a mobile-friendly site. Starting on April 21, Google will start using mobile-friendliness as a factor when determining rankings for mobile search results. This means that if someone is searching from their smartphone and your website is not mobile-friendly, your website will be less likely to appear in the search results. In Google’s own words, this update “will have a…

    Do you know about Google’s new ranking signal? How secure is your website? Do you use HTTPS? If you don’t know the answers to these questions (and even if you do), read on. People who use your website are displaying their trust in you. After all, if you knew a website was untrustworthy, how often would you go there? A big factor when it comes to whether a website is trustworthy is its security. Unsecure websites lose customer data and can be corrupted (and can corrupt users' computers at the same time). Google knows that website security is linked to trustworthiness, which is why…

    With Google announcing that around the 21st april, your site’s “mobile friendlliness” will affect your search results, a lot of people are worried.

As a small business, unexpected costs are the WORST!

    We are film lovers and social media lovers so I thought to do a few deeper studies on how individual films are represented on social media platforms. Facebook is definitely the most widespread platform to stay in touch with fans even years after a film premiere. It’s interesting to see how an animated movie which is dedicated to kids uses social media on a platfor which has a lower age limit – Facebook. Disney’s Frozen is the most successful animated movie ever. Even though it is aimed at kids, it won hearts of adults as well, and looking at the number of likes on FB…

  • What Makes An Exceptional Shop Banner Design?

    17 Apr 2015 | 3:00 am
    3 weeks ago I started a discussion and asked other shop owners to share a link to their Creative Market shop if they had an especially exceptional shop banner, and optionally they could review other shop banners. It received about 40+ replies and I was ecstatic to see some familiar, well-known faces and also some hidden wonders. But it made me think, what makes a shop banner design exceptional, and why attempt it anyway? My second question is rhetorical.

    In case you weren't on social media over the weekend (we're looking at you, Bob), you may have missed the news: Hillary Clinton has officially decided to run for president. And with that announcement, came a logo — and a whole bunch of fuss. First, let's take a look at the logo in question: Alrighty, so it's not particularly inspired, and maybe it was drafted using a ruler and a copy of MacPaint. Does that mean that it's bad? Let's check in on Twitter: Yeah, that last one isn't just a stretch, it's in bad taste, but whatever. Oh, and the best one yet: That's right folks, Hillvetica.

    I know, I’ve already written about the rough waters of parenthood in past blogs. I can’t help it. Why? Well, because there is a new addition coming to the Green Circle family! That’s right, folks. I am going to have a baby (begin freaking out with the fear of the future….here!). I’ve done the whole ooh’ing and ah’ing over baby clothes. I’ve also looked at every website under the sun offering baby gear. As I’m not really in a position to purchase everything under the sun, I have been looking at everything that offers sales or even people reselling what they’ve already used.

    As the east coast gears up for another cold front / snowy blizzard, I find myself venturing towards the summer items. Pinterest is filled with summer activities to do with families, adults only, or road trip ideas. (I have a few road trips I’d love to take this summer!) One of the pins I came across was how to travel smart by train through Europe. Now, I’m not living in Europe, nor am I traveling there anytime soon (Waaa!! I want to go now!), but it’s good information for people traveling there now or are planning to go in the near future. (Check out her blog: theblondabroad.com. It’s…

    I’m a big proponent of technology. I mean, I write a techie blog! Of course I’d be one to keep the door of progress open instead of closed in fear. That does not mean, however, that I blindly accept any new piece of technology that comes our way. When I got my very first iPhone (way back in the stone age), I was amazed that I could get email, track a road trip, buy plane tickets, and check up on my checking account all on my phone. While not much has changed, there are new features to my latest iPhone (just the 5s, folks.) that I was super excited about. I was excited about getting Siri.

    Ever see those fancy looking search results in Google? They look a lot more attractive and give you more information than a regular search result snippet. They can have things like photos, addresses, reviews and all sorts of other info besides a basic title and description. We call these rich snippets and there is no reason why you can’t get your web pages displaying like this in Google’s search results.Major search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo! aren’t mind readers (despite how much they would like to be).

    Improving the speed and performance of your Magento store is critical. Patience is short lived on the web and every second that ticks by while your store is loading, you are losing sales.We all know how painful it is waiting for a page to load. This was reinforced by a survey by Kissmetics which suggests almost half of web users will abandon a page that takes more than 10 seconds to load. A third of those people are unwilling to even wait for more than 5 seconds. This impatient attitude is reflected by Google’s push to ‘Make the Web Faster’. Page speed is taken very seriously by…

    Backlinks to your website are a double edged sword. Quality backlinks are an essential part of your search engine optimisation. These inbound links act as votes of confidence in your site from outside sources, and are a key part of the search engine algorithm. Theoretically, a website that has a good number of inbound backlinks from other relevant and authoritive websites has more credibility in the eyes of both visitors and search engines.On the other hand though, backlinks from dodgy sites can do a lot of harm to your website’s ranking.When you have quality, natural backlinks on your…

    Unless you’ve had your head stuck under the desk for the last decade and a half, then you will no doubt have come across the term “agile” in reference to design and development at some point. But what on Earth does it mean? This is actually a very good question, especially if you’re out of the development loop. When we’re talking about agile, we’re not actually referring to the actual build or structure of a programme itself, but rather to a management methodology or organising IT development projects and teams. The provenance of the term can be traced back to the Agile…

    Social media is all about communities. Generally speaking, the bigger your communities (i.e. following), the greater the traffic you will enjoy pouring through your website. And of course, more traffic means more conversions, which means more business. There is, however, a lot of literature out there on the web that will tell you that your follower count is a vanity metric and nothing more. There is some truth in this, of course. For instance, I’m sure if you’ve got a Twitter account you will have no doubt at some point come across tweets from some very questionable sources that claim…

    SEO has changed a lot over the years. Whereas once it was all about stuffing as many keywords into your blog or web page as possible, now that very same practice will see you penalized by Google. And the same goes for link building. Once upon a time it was a simple numbers game – the more backlinks you had to your site, the better – but now even links are ranked for importance and relevance, and sponsored links have to configured as no-follows in order to keep those search engines happy. Just as with everything on the net, as time goes by, Google becomes ever more and more sophisticated…

Over the last decade it has absolutely exploded in popularity, being used to create sites for amateur bloggers and professional web developers alike. It’s become truly massive in fact. It was reported by the ManageWP Blog last year that a staggering 74.6 million sites out there were dependent upon WordPress. There is of course good reason for WordPress’s popularity, and other CMSs like Drupal and Joomla! for that matter. The fact is…

    Ogni sito realizzato con wordpress, è costituito da un tema realizzato ad hoc, free o acquistato online, contenuto in una cartella denominata "theme" e che possiede tutti i file, immagini, video e personalizzazioni varie che riguardano il sito. Qualora avessi la necessità di personalizzare alcune funzioni del tuo tema, soprattutto se realizzato da terze parti o acquistato online, dovresti lavorare sui file che costituiscono il tema stesso. In questo caso specifico ti consiglio di creare un tema child piuttosto che modificare direttamente il tema genitore, in quanto qualora in futuro venisse…

Come primo metodo puoi utilizzare il pannello di amministrazione, attraverso la voce Profilo (di ciascun utente) puoi togliere il segno di spunta in corrispondenza della voce "Visualizza la Barra strumenti quando si visualizza il sito".

    labdesign80

    In molti temi wordpress ci troviamo a dover risolvere questo problema: il tag span viene rimosso da TinyMCE, ribaltando il codice che abbiamo inserito in modalità "Testo". Per evitare che venga alterato in nostro html, e quindi che non vadano a buon fine le nostre modifiche, occorre integrare una nuova funzione nel tema che stiamo utilizzando. Questo tipo di modifica va apportata al file functions.php Nota: Ovviamente, come sempre, ricordo che apportando modifiche al file functions, in caso di aggiornamenti futuri del tema, la modifica sarà sovrascritta e quindi eliminata.

Nell'immagine che ho allegato a questo articolo, puoi vedere la favicon di Google. Altro non è, quindi, che un elemento caratteristico importante per qualsiasi sito o blog.

    9 Apr 2015 | 6:03 am
    Broken links are never ideal. But there will be times when your users will click on an out-of-date link or try to type in a url within your site that doesn’t exist. When this type of mistake happens, they will be directed to a 404 error page. You know the ones - they usually say ‘Page not found’ and make you hit your head against the nearest wall. Or click immediately off the site. But not all 404 pages are created equally and if you get it right, what starts off as an error can actually help to engage users with your brand.

Yet, pay per click advertising can almost always generate enough relevant traffic for your business and there is usually great intent behind the searches.

The developers also could focus on a single task. This improved their focus and the development process. Gradually, the ways in which testing was done also grew in number.
