    In a previous article1 I introduced mobile back end as a service (MBaaS) which aims at giving app developers the ability to create seamlessly new feature-complete cross-platform native and web applications. The next step is implementing a complete demo application using those ideas. Through this real working application, you will be able to see the areas in which MBaaS provides value.

    Creative block doesn’t care where you are. It can strike even if you’re in one the most beautiful places in the world. I know because it just happened to me. I was struggling with writing this very article here in Queenstown, New Zealand. Distractions can seem as tall as mountains and in my case they are. Writing this week’s article has been a huge struggle. Good work almost always involves a struggle of some kind. It’s rare for creative work to fall into place with everything flowing beautifully from start to finish. Queenstown has almost immediately become one of our favourite…

    The creative mind is like the human body. Creativity by Alex Norris Creativity is something that should be trained everyday, or else it would get out of shape. Thus, doing some creativity exercises would ensure that your brain remains sharp enough for you to do your projects effectively. Aside from that, it’s inevitable that you will run into a creative block where it would seem that your fountain of creativity has run out. Doing some light Photoshop manipulation or even doodling will help getting you back in the zone. I’ve listed some mini design exercises you can do to get…

    Stop being lazy and get up. A fundamental shift occurred to me once I entered my late 20’s  a few years ago. I took an inventory of my life and realized nothing changed. 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. I spent years working a corporate job in America and the fun and freedom I experienced living…

    It’s just like that for your product, too: people rely on our products to work. Bugs erode trust, which in turn loses customers. So when we began updating Foundation, a responsive CSS framework, we wanted to ensure everything worked. Thoroughly. We know that many people rely on our software for their work, and maintaining that trust is paramount. In this article you’ll learn our methodology for testing responsively, not just on a case by case, page-from-PSD comp.

  • Assessing Mobile Usability With Google Webmaster Tools

    25 Mar 2015 | 7:57 am
    Back in 2013, Google officially announced1 that it would begin to penalize websites that provide a faulty user experience on mobile devices. Specific examples included redirecting inner URLs to a home page when viewed in a mobile version of a website, as well as showing 404 errors to people attempting to access pages on mobile. Toward the end of 2014, a Google spokesperson hinted that the mobile user experience would become a ranking factor2. In January 2015, a number of website owners received messages warning about mobile usability issues on their websites, linking to a section of Webmaster…

    When you imagine a programming mentor, certain archetypes might flash into your mind. Maybe you see the wise monk who’s meditated on design patterns for decades. Perhaps it’s the sophisticated keynote speaker with a staggering list of open source contributions. Or it might be that mad scientist polyglot obsessed with a dozen languages you’ve never heard of. But if these characters aren’t on your team when the new hire straight out of school joins up, who’s going to take the reins of training? You, of course.

    The concept of the web as an application platform has never been more popular, but the tools used to create these so-called “web apps” are still fraught with pitfalls that are often ignored or misunderstood. Single-page web app frameworks have gained traction because they can easily be used to create fast, complex applications that feel much more solid and interactive than traditional websites. But this benefit, and the changes in mindset and development practices that accompany it, comes at the cost of basic browser functionality that web developers sometimes take for granted. JavaScript…

    Our data is out of our control. We might (wisely or unwisely) choose to publicly share our statuses, personal information, media and locations, or we might choose to only share this data with our friends. But it’s just an illusion of choice—however we share, we’re exposing ourselves to a wide audience. We have so much more to worry about than future employers seeing photos of us when we’ve had too much to drink. Corporations hold a lot of information about us. They store the stuff we share on their sites and apps, and provide us with data storage for our emails, files, and much more.

    What You'll Be CreatingWhenever I think of some of my favorite Disney films, The Little Mermaid always comes to mind. In today's tutorial we'll go through the step-by-step process behind this underwater digital painting inspired by my favorite mermaid, Ariel. Cue theme music!1. Start With a Rough SketchAlthough I was inspired by The Little Mermaid movie for this piece, I didn't reference it too much for the actual mermaid (I did, however, for Flounder her friend and sidekick). Instead, I gathered a lot of general references online to get a better understanding of "mermaid anatomy".

I know this has happened to me several times. I go with the tutorial, though, because I know that in vector, there is more than one way to do things, and perhaps someone else's workflow may expose me to other techniques I hadn't considered.There's a phrase in the UK that goes: "There's more than one way to skin a cat."

  • Web Design: Transparency as a Design Element (plus Best Practices)

    Ioanni Mitsakis
    27 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    Transparency has become a big hit in web design since most browsers can display it. Transparent elements are used to either set accents or draw attention to a certain area like images or text passages. But there are a few things that can go wrong while developing websites with transparent effects. Today we’ll show you what you should pay attention to. Let’s create a harmonious website with transparent elements, shall we? Transparency in Web Design There are two different ways to get transparency: by using transparent PNG files or pure CSS. The latter becomes more and more popular…

    The best podcasts listen to interesting people having interesting conversations about work, and life and for episode 104 of Unfinished Business I’m joined by two fascinating folk. 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…

    Back for episode 103 of Unfinished Business is my favourite comedy duo, ‘Pipe and Pyjamas,’ Paul Boag and Jon Hicks. We had a list of things that we weren’t allowed to talk about, a list that was surprisingly topped by Dr. Who, food and bicycles. Instead we discuss about Paul’s green screen, his motorhome and why he left Headscape, the company he founded thirteen years ago. We end up talking about how we’re redefining our places in the web industry as the three of us get older. In the after-show segment (for non-boring people,) we talk about Vic and Bob’s…

    A little later than advertised (and by “a little” I actually mean a week) I’m joined on Unfinished Business. Episode 102 by Rachel Andrew and Zoe Mickley Gillenwater. Despite being two experts on bleeding edge CSS layout modules, they don’t talk about CSS (much.) Instead we talk about how to keep doing when keeping going is hard and what gives us that motivation. We also discuss making big decisions including when we might want to take, or leave, a job.

For this, the first episode of 2015, I’m joined by two of the best well-known writers about how to implement CSS on a large scale Harry Roberts and Jonathan Snook. We talk about if the ways we talk about CSS today have made learning it less accessible for beginners.

  • 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…

    The creative mind is like the human body. Creativity by Alex Norris Creativity is something that should be trained everyday, or else it would get out of shape. Thus, doing some creativity exercises would ensure that your brain remains sharp enough for you to do your projects effectively. Aside from that, it’s inevitable that you will run into a creative block where it would seem that your fountain of creativity has run out. Doing some light Photoshop manipulation or even doodling will help getting you back in the zone. I’ve listed some mini design exercises you can do to get…
  • 9 Generic Logotypes You Should Avoid When Designing A Logo

    Kevin Mark Rabida
    26 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    One of the most crucial aspects of designing a logo is making elements reflect what the company really is. But there are times when we as designers get influenced with current design trends. It may be caused by false inspiration, unintentional plagiarism, or just a plain result of the changing design times. In a previous article, we talked about the generic logo that we are all too tired of seeing. Graphic designer Giovanni Todini curated a list of logo cliches most run-of-the-mill designers use.  Logos using Trajan font cut by an arc or the use of graph icons for finance-type firms are all…

    25 Mar 2015 | 5:23 pm
    They are called intrusive thoughts—disruptive fantasies of anger, hate, and most of all, fear. In psychology, intrusive thoughts are negative ideas that’re automatic, frequent, upsetting or distressing, and difficult to control or get rid of. They are associated with obsessive-compulsive disorders and depression, but they can be experienced by all of us. And now, this guy illustrates them. Los Angeles-based artist Fran Krause is an animator. He is currently faculty in the Character Animation Program at CalArts, creator of several cartoons, and he’s the guy who draws the Deep…
  • The 7 Original Godzilla Posters by Noriyoshi Ohrai

    Kevin Mark Rabida
    23 Mar 2015 | 4:48 pm
    Godzilla is one monster, or kaiju, we all recognize from childhood. He is one of the most recognizable icons of Japaneses popular culture, and is the face of Japanese kaiju film subgenre Last year, Godzilla was featured in an American film and retells his origin as an ancient alpha predator whose existence was hidden by the US government since the 50s. The film’s poster was surprisingly subtle in contrast to the original Godzilla posters from the 80s. There’s gritty reboots for you, I guess. With vivid and bright colors, Noriyoshi Orai’s original posters portray a more…

Friedman was instrumental in altering modernist design thinking from the cool, rational Swiss model of the ’60s to a more emotional, exuberant, and inclusive mode of visual communication. His life and work were continually informed by philosophical and ethical values that stand today as a model for contemporary design practice.

In another, men gave birth. Each show was an exploration of how humanity would respond to slightly different…

    Here’s a nicely crafted monogram for Wall of Wally — an illustrative tribute to Wally Olins CBE, 1930-2014. It was created by London-based Jamin Galea, who told me: “I knew I wanted to call the project Wall of Wally, but I didn’t really plan to use a bowtie in the mark. I assumed that everyone would do that if given the opportunity. I liked the idea of using the two ‘w’s and that’s how the process started. “As you can see, though, the symmetry of the ‘w’s and the ‘o’ naturally lead me to a bowtie shape, and I gave in. “My final tricky design decision was…

    Contributed by Simon Manchipp of London-based SomeOne. Heraldic ‘achievements’ — often mistakenly called crests or a coat of arms — are probably one of the oldest forms of logo. Steeped in meaning, these designs continue to endure over centuries. At SomeOne we take pride in being a progressive design practice, but sometimes a project calls for timeless levels of craft, rather than adaptive data fuelled responsive system. That’s what happened here. Most accounting qualifications train people for private practice, working on external audit and tax issues. The Chartered Institute of…

    Mehmet Gözetlik’s Chinatown project explores how Western trademarks can be presented for the Chinese culture. On the signage examples, he maintained the graphic identity known to consumers around the world, but described the company’s product in Chinese characters — e.g., the Starbucks signage reads “Caramel Macchiato”; Shell Oil reads “gasoline”, etc. The most interesting part for me is the creation of the Pepsi neon sign, shown in the short video below. Reminiscent of Mike Heist and his sign-making skills. Via @issue.

But you know, hours in the day and all that. I recently had Jason work on this project for me, and he did a bang up job. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, read on. Adding new functionality to a WordPress site can be as easy as searching for a plugin in the WordPress Plugin Repository and installing that plugin. But there is some custom functionality you might need that is either too basic or too…
  • Server Side Mustard Cut

    Chris Coyier
    30 Mar 2015 | 8:26 am
    The term "mustard cutting" in web design comes from developers at the BBC who wanted to serve different experiences of their site to different browsers on different devices. They were specifically trying to avoid User Agent sniffing: But these days, with such a long tail of user agents now accessing the site, this becomes a fruitless exercise. Instead, they used feature detection. Modernizr is the classic (awesome) example of that, but ala carte feature tests can be quite small and simple all by themselves. This is the logic the BBC used to determine if a browser cut the mustard or not:…
  • Choose a Random Option based on a Range

    Chris Coyier

    I have three options and I need to randomly pick one (in JavaScript). But not equally random. I want there to be a 10% chance of the first option, 20% chance of the second one, and 70% chance of the third. Here are some ways to do that. Imagine the data is like this: var choices = [ [10, "apples"], [20, "oranges"], [70, "bananas"] ]; Plus we've set scoped variables for stuff like iterators and random numbers and stuff. Let's just call this conceptual code, not production code. Test between a min and max The first place my mind went was to generate a random number between 1-100 and then test…
  • Numeric Inputs – A Comparison of Browser Defaults

    Geoff Graham
    25 Mar 2015 | 6:28 am
    The spec, purposefully, stops short of telling implementations (browsers) how to handle UI. In this article we're looking specifically at <input type="number">, and you might be surprised to learn that the spec specifically says: This specification does not define what user interface user agents are to use. It goes on to explain that different languages, cultures, and regions might have good reason to handle numeric inputs differently. So browsers are on their own here, and perhaps this time unsurprisingly, there are quite a few different approaches to the UI. Let's take a look. The…

Today, we'll look at another security concern for front end developers: Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF). Lest you think this security stuff isn't important, a major vulnerability was recently found in the WP SEO plugin, which is installed on 1,000,000+ WordPress sites and which allowed hackers to manipulate the WordPress database using CSRF. (The plugin was fixed quickly, but you can see how scary this stuff can be.) Nonces and Cross-Site Request Forgery Put simply, CSRF…

    Today, I’m going to show you how to protect your business, so that it will still thrive, even if you lose your biggest customer. I need to start by asking you a question. 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. When [not if] the customer leaves or ceases trading, the vendor is left in an extremely precarious position. Despite…

Or when you hear someone say “eat fresh” you think of Subway! That’s because these companies have done a great job integrating their taglines with their logos. 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…

    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.

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.

    I must admit up front that I never hopped on board the Tumblr train during its meteoric rise these past few years. While I’ve taken a fair stab at setting up a few blogs, I could never quite get the app to stick with me in the same way that a personal WordPress site (or even Medium) has been able to do. That being said, I think Tumblr is one of the coolest apps in the world right now with world-class design and an extremely polished end-product.

My first true experience with Android was earlier this year on KitKat 4.4. The OS was nice, and not too jarring of a change from iOS 7 (at the time), but several quirks in the software made it impossible for me to fully abandon the Apple ecosystem. This month’s release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, however, feels like it could be the tipping point. There are a lot of really amazing features that Android brings to the table…

  • The Beauty of Infographic Style Web Design

    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…
  • Ghost Buttons – A Current and Popular Trend in Website Design

    Carol Francis
    16 Mar 2015 | 10:02 am
    Ghost buttons, or empty buttons, are a trend that have really come into being through necessity – the use of large background images requires information elements that don’t obscure large areas of the image, and ghost buttons with their no fill, and usually thin border and small text fit the bill perfectly. Of course, designers being such creative animals, we are seeing different types of ghost buttons and varying layouts and uses for them. Here is a selection of ghost buttons in use, and I have tried to select as many different types as possible to show the creativity of the…

Below is a screenshot of a portfolio I created really quickly with the help of a Dribbble API library called Jribble.

  • 4 Reasons Why Everyone Should Know the Basics of Programming

    Paula Borowska
    4 Mar 2015 | 4:04 am
    There are a lot of opinions out there as to why designers should or shouldn’t learn how to code. I beg to extend that question and argue that everyone should know at least the basics of programing. My definition of basic is HTML and CSS. I suppose I could summarize this whole post with one single and short reason as to why everyone should code: knowing how to code empowers you. But that’s such a simple statement and it isn’t enough so let’s explore the four different reasons why everyone should know the basics of programming. 1. The Web Is Among Us All Originally when I was planning…

    Jacob Gube
    30 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    Have you ever had the experience of going to a site and patiently waiting forever for it to load? Probably not, because no one waits forever for a site to load. We just close the browser tab and move on. Time matters. When it comes to getting the user’s attention, we only have a very brief window of opportunity. According to Ilya Grigorik, on his “Speed, Performance, and Human Perception” keynote, you only have one second. One second! After that first second, a mental context switch occurs. In the user’s mind, it has been so long that they start to think about…
  • Disable Text Selection with CSS

    Jacob Gube
    27 Mar 2015 | 7:00 am
    There might be some instances where preventing certain parts of your web page from being selected could be beneficial. In these cases, you could try using the user-select CSS property. Example Here’s a style rule for a class named disable-selection that, when applied to an HTML element, will prevent people from being able to select the element: .disable-selection { -moz-user-select: none; /* Firefox */ -ms-user-select: none; /* Internet Explorer */ -khtml-user-select: none; /* KHTML browsers (e.g. Konqueror) */ -webkit-user-select: none; /* Chrome, Safari, and Opera */…

CSS variables give us many of the same advantages that classic variables offer up to programming languages: convenience, code-reusability, a more readable codebase, and improved mistake-proofing. Example :root { --base-font-size: 16px; --link-color: #6495ed; } p { font-size: var( --base-font-size ); } a { font-size: var( --base-font-size ); color: var( --link-color ); } Basics There are three main components you should know about when using CSS…

    9 Oct 2014 | 9:23 am
    I’ve been building WordPress themes for many years. The first free themes I released were tragically bad but they were something. A start. I never really knew what I was doing in the beginning. It didn’t matter though. I knew design and CSS, and that’s all I needed to know to design a grunge WordPress theme. I started building stuff for WordPress in approximately 2007. The themes I built were typically just ripped from Kubrick and restyled based on my preferred design patterns from that year. I was learning about WordPress, PHP, theme standards, design, functionality,…

    The humble animated GIF has become a popular tool for designers to share their UI designs. How a web or app interface works is just as important as how it looks, and the animated GIF—while it lacks refinement and quality—is the most accessible file format that can be easily viewed directly in the browser, making it perfect for sharing on social sites such as Dribbble. In today’s post I showcase 20+ examples of how designers use animated GIFs to present the interactions and gestures in their UI designs.

  • Using HHVM With WordPress

    Zachary Russell
    31 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    Over the past few months HHVM has taken the PHP community by storm. Since WordPress 3.9 was released, HHVM is now 100% compatible with WordPress.Unfortunately, HHVM is not quite ready for use in production in self-hosted environments. In my experience, HHVM crashes about once per day, which makes it not viable for a site where high availability is important. Recently, WP Engine has released project Mercury which seamlessly allows HHVM to gracefully fail by falling back to PHP 5.5 when it fails.In this article, we're going to install HHVM on an Ubuntu server running the latest LTS release,…

    Marc Schenker
    31 Mar 2015 | 4:45 am
    Designers who use Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator regularly, know that they can’t get out of using it on their desktops. This means hour after hour of sitting at their workstations, especially if a big project is due, and deadlines can’t be extended. But sitting for too long isn’t good for your health. Further, designing in front of a desktop is inherently limiting because it doesn’t account for people’s increasingly mobile lifestyles. What happens if you’re traveling, and you can’t reschedule your very important trip? You obviously can’t lug your desktop with you on the plane,…

UX vs. UI Some argue that you cannot design a user’s experience. After all there are so many things beyond your control that you cannot influence. But that is not my point. My point is that many people claim to design experiences, when they are actually designing a user interface. You see the user interface is just a tiny part of the experience, not the whole thing.

React Native is a radical departure from how mobile, UI app development is usually done. When this open source project was first announced, it received excited reactions from developers. React Native is a new approach because it allows developers to write code and then glance at the results in just a few seconds. Naturally, this is more appealing to some than having to first recompile the whole…

That’s what I said when I wrote about a more appropriate approach to designing in the browser, called The 80/20 Hybrid Approach to Designing in the Browser: Unless you think and dream in HTML and CSS, designing in the browser puts an unnecessary barrier between your great design ideas and the most effective way you can actually design them.

CI focuses on reducing risks of occurrence of errors as well as being aimed to enhance workflow and strengthen the overall control over the project. Thanks to constant builds and tests that are conducted in automated mode, the team gets a chance to not slow down the process and improve the reliability of a product. It helps to…

    Creative block doesn’t care where you are. It can strike even if you’re in one the most beautiful places in the world. I know because it just happened to me. I was struggling with writing this very article here in Queenstown, New Zealand. Distractions can seem as tall as mountains and in my case they are. Writing this week’s article has been a huge struggle. Good work almost always involves a struggle of some kind.

  • 5 Ways Writing Helps Your Design Career

    Tom Kenny
    18 Mar 2015 | 3:34 am
    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. Writing is a skill anyone can learn and develop anytime, and if you want to take your design…
  • Clarifying The 80/20 Hybrid Approach to Designing in the Browser

    Tom Kenny

    You’re risking the quality of your design work if you rely solely on designing in the browser. That’s what I said when I wrote about a more appropriate approach to designing in the browser, called The 80/20 Hybrid Approach to Designing in the Browser: Unless you think and dream in HTML and CSS, designing in the browser puts an unnecessary barrier between your great design ideas and the most effective way you can actually design them. You can’t manipulate your design directly with code. The HTML and CSS code effectively acts as a middleman between your brain and your design work. Why…

    Virgin America’s new homepage When Virgin America’s flight booking site redesign was first launched, I remember many designers praising it and rightly so; it’s great design. Booking a plane ticket online can be a fairly complicated process, so when a company attempts to simplify the process, it draws attention. It’s very similar to Avis Car Hire in that respect, the subject of the very first Learn from Great Design study here on Inspect Element. Although the Virgin America redesign isn’t as visually inspiring as Avis, it still offers the same great user experience through…

They’re the biggest thing web designers waste time on. I tweeted as much a little while ago but now I want to go into more depth of the reasons why.

    Stop being lazy and get up. A fundamental shift occurred to me once I entered my late 20’s  a few years ago. I took an inventory of my life and realized nothing changed. 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. I spent years working a corporate job in America and the fun and freedom I experienced living…

     Knowledge applied properly turns into a skill. And the only thing that matters with your skills is the results you achieve with them. Read that again. Only your results matter. For high achievers this is not a deep revelation, but for people who consider themselves to be smart, but wonder why they have not achieved what they want by now, it’s something to be stamped on the forehead so you stop blaming circumstance and luck. It’s YOU. Become really good at what you do, whatever that is When I was younger and dumber, I was focused on money and status. Not out of vanity, but…

    I once heard a wise man say, “At the end of their life, no ever says, ‘I wish I had spent more time at the office!’ “Another one said that “Men and women can have it all – just not at the same time.” Life is precious. It is often tough.It is sometimes very sad. It has its moments of triumph and its moments of tragedy. I’ve been doing some thinking about my current relationship, how many times she would have been “justified” in leaving me. How many times I would have been “justified” in leaving her.

    If you’ve ever compared website creating to magic, you may have noticed that both online shop creating and a magic trick consist of 3 parts. In the first part you see the object: a ‘raw’ template with plenty of Latin text, a name which doesn’t even fit your project and a design which you still need to adjust. The second part is “The Turn”. The ordinary thing turns into something extraordinary. At this stage you customize a template to a state which you hope impresses your customers and becomes eye-candy to you. The third part of the trick is usually getting everything back…

    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…

But if you have ever done documentation, you’d agree with me that it is pretty much the least favorite things for developers to do. Unlike writing code (which is what developers signed up to do), documentation (which we didn’t) has to and should be easily digested by everyone. Technically, we have to translate a machine language (code) into a language that is understandable to humans, which is…

  • Using HHVM With WordPress

    Zachary Russell
    31 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    Over the past few months HHVM has taken the PHP community by storm. Since WordPress 3.9 was released, HHVM is now 100% compatible with WordPress.Unfortunately, HHVM is not quite ready for use in production in self-hosted environments. In my experience, HHVM crashes about once per day, which makes it not viable for a site where high availability is important. Recently, WP Engine has released project Mercury which seamlessly allows HHVM to gracefully fail by falling back to PHP 5.5 when it fails.In this article, we're going to install HHVM on an Ubuntu server running the latest LTS release,…

    30 Mar 2015 | 10:25 am

    The first part of this nginx article talked about the architecture and the main nginx configuration file. This article continues from there and talks about the nginx essentials: the modules that are needed and other advanced configuration techniques.Nginx ModulesThe real power of nginx lies in its modules. The entire stack can be imagined as made up of modules which enhance or build on top of the capabilities of the nginx core. To use them, they have to be enabled during compilation from source and cannot be enabled at run time. Some modules are automatically compiled in unless otherwise…

    23 Mar 2015 | 1:00 am
    Since posting this showcase of inspiring artwork combining geometry & photography back in 2014 I’ve wanted to give this trendy style of art a try myself. I finally sat down with Illustrator & Photoshop and devised a method of transforming a photograph into an abstract collage of geometric shapes. We’ll begin with Illustrator to build up a series of geometric lines, then cut up an image in Photoshop to create an interesting composition. A series of textures and curves adjustments will then help give the design a trendy retro style with plenty of processed colours and grain.

    Advertise here with BSAAdobe Photoshop has come a long way since it was originally released in 1990. While Adobe has put out their latest “monthly subscription” suite of Creative Cloud, many designers choose to stick with the last iteration of CS6. The CS6 pack is still incredibly powerful and there’s not much of a difference from CS6 to CC. However going back in time there is a tremendous difference between CS6 and CS2 or CS3. So it’s worth getting up to speed with all the new tools and techniques for the CS6/CC collection. This how-to guide will focus on how to…

    Advertise here with BSAGreat photography is hard to locate and even harder to capture yourself. So whenever you can obtain a beautiful photo it’s often better to fix problems with the shot digitally instead of trying to capture another one. A common problem with landscape photography is a slanted horizon line. Landscapes can be useful for any number of projects like photo compositing, digital painting, banners, backgrounds, or even 2D/3D rendering. The horizon line sets the perspective of the landscape and is a very important piece to the photo. In this quick tip I’ll demonstrate…

     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…

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…

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…

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…

    Marc Schenker
    31 Mar 2015 | 4:45 am
    Designers who use Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator regularly, know that they can’t get out of using it on their desktops. This means hour after hour of sitting at their workstations, especially if a big project is due, and deadlines can’t be extended. But sitting for too long isn’t good for your health. Further, designing in front of a desktop is inherently limiting because it doesn’t account for people’s increasingly mobile lifestyles. What happens if you’re traveling, and you can’t reschedule your very important trip? You obviously can’t lug your desktop with you on the plane,…

UX vs. UI Some argue that you cannot design a user’s experience. After all there are so many things beyond your control that you cannot influence. But that is not my point. My point is that many people claim to design experiences, when they are actually designing a user interface. You see the user interface is just a tiny part of the experience, not the whole thing.

React Native is a radical departure from how mobile, UI app development is usually done. When this open source project was first announced, it received excited reactions from developers. React Native is a new approach because it allows developers to write code and then glance at the results in just a few seconds.

    Let’s say you need to get to a friend’s house in a city you’ve never been to before. Would you just get in your car and drive around aimlessly, hoping you stumble across the place you need to be? No, of course not. You would get directions. You would determine how to get from point A to point B before stepping on the gas. You would factor things in like driving time and alternate routes, maybe even the weather. The same concept can (and should) be applied to your marketing efforts. Creating a Targeted Plan When deciding on how to market your business, you need to know your end goal. You…

    “Anyone with an internet connection and an idea can develop an audience.” These words were spoken by actor Kevin Spacey at last year’s Content Marketing World to 2,600 marketing professionals and, to put it simply, he’s right. But marketing isn’t just about building an audience, it’s about building the right audience. A lot of time and money is wasted when trying to sell a service or product to the wrong individual. Instead, you need to create a strategic marketing plan to delves into who your target audience is and how you can reach it. Let’s break down how you can target the…

    Offering managed IT services or implementing VOIP may not seem like the most thrilling service offerings. And some people go so far as thinking these offerings are downright boring (gasp!). Never forget, though, that your services are very much needed. And just because IT stereotypically may not be the sexiest industry, there are plenty of ways to step up your game when it comes to showing off your brand. The first impression people have of your business is often your website. So, it’s time to make it more fab than drab. Here are four small ways you can add big personality to your IT site:…

    Engaging presentations with effective visuals can be key when trying to capture your audience’s attention. Each day we’re constantly bombarded with information and if you’re anything like me, my attention span seems to be thinning day by day. We’ve all sat through someone’s presentation slide after slide trying our best to ignore the text message that just popped up or the Facebook notification that just came in on our iPhone.

There are even some network administrators that use Linux together with Samba so as to come up with file servers which can be accessed by Windows workstations just the same way they would Windows NT/2000 file servers. But if you also want your Linux to serve as a print server, it is possible. The best way so far, although obviously not the easiest, involves using the Linux print utilities.

    Being a designer you can never be certain of anything you build, like science, good design is built on uncertainty.

    “Ryan, you’re an idiot” – is a greeting I’ve become accustom to from my Dad. We have that kind of stupid name calling relationship we should have grown out of a long time ago, but we just can’t let go. We are both idiots. Yet when I told him about my daily routine and considering the amount I swear, it was something I definitely couldn’t put down on paper. I think he even made up some words, I can’t be sure. Then I explained my reasoning behind it and his reply was simple and to the point – “well, whatever makes you happy”.

    It’s no longer enough to be a web designer in this day and age. Thanks (or no thanks) to website builders that allow startups and business owners without any design experience to create a website by just dragging and dropping elements unto a page on their site,  the need for a professional designer may not be as high unlike before. The challenge now to designers is find a way to adapt to the needs of web-based businesses. This can be achieved by learning adjacent skills to complement their expertise in design.

  • Best UX Design Solutions for Date Input Fields

    Jake Rocheleau
    30 Mar 2015 | 5:30 am
    The purpose of user experience design is to focus solely on how an interface behaves. This is traditionally more important than the actual design because a pretty-looking website is useless if nobody can use it. Thus UX has become a field unto itself with areas of focus derived from usability and case studies. The absolute best user experience is often streamlined and versatile. Designers should create something that visitors instinctively know how to use. Although some page elements behave in a fairly obvious manner(hyperlinks, buttons) there are others which are not-so-obvious. One such…

You can follow him on Twitter. Leaflets are everywhere, but most of the time, they can be pretty boring and also, rather dull. A lot of designers tend to overcomplicate leaflet designs, cramming them with as much text as possible; this can overload the reader with information right from the word go. However, not all leaflets are so poorly designed. In fact, there are some pretty incredible designs out…

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…

This is the information age, which means that 90% of the time people will rush to the restaurant’s website to get a feel of what the dining experience would be like, check out the menu and even make reservations if they’re pleased…

    Say you are creating content to be on the web. How can a browser tell where breaks should be between paragraphs?

    If you’ve ever compared website creating to magic, you may have noticed that both online shop creating and a magic trick consist of 3 parts. In the first part you see the object: a ‘raw’ template with plenty of Latin text, a name which doesn’t even fit your project and a design which you still need to adjust. The second part is “The Turn”. The ordinary thing turns into something extraordinary. At this stage you customize a template to a state which you hope impresses your customers and becomes eye-candy to you. The third part of the trick is usually getting everything back…

  • Could Adobe kill your desktop?

    Marc Schenker
    31 Mar 2015 | 4:45 am
    Designers who use Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator regularly, know that they can’t get out of using it on their desktops. This means hour after hour of sitting at their workstations, especially if a big project is due, and deadlines can’t be extended. But sitting for too long isn’t good for your health. Further, designing in front of a desktop is inherently limiting because it doesn’t account for people’s increasingly mobile lifestyles. What happens if you’re traveling, and you can’t reschedule your very important trip? You obviously can’t lug your desktop with you on the plane,…

    So you think you are a user experience designer? Are you sure? You might have it in your job title, but are you somebody who designs experiences for users? Or do you design user interfaces? UX vs. UI Some argue that you cannot design a user’s experience. After all there are so many things beyond your control that you cannot influence. But that is not my point. My point is that many people claim to design experiences, when they are actually designing a user interface. You see the user interface is just a tiny part of the experience, not the whole thing.

React Native is a new approach because it allows developers to write code and then glance at the results in just a few seconds. Naturally, this is more appealing to some than having to first recompile the whole…

  • Why Your Website Must Have Proper Page Titles & Descriptions

    Theresa Sheridan
    24 Feb 2015 | 10:26 am
    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…

Without motion, there cannot be interaction. When you close a tab, it disappears from the screen: at this basic level, motion provides immediate feedback (which is crucial since vision is our dominant sense), but at a more advanced level, motion adds a layer of humanity and realism.

  • Creative and Effective Use of Background Videos in Web Design

    Thanks to the introduction of HTML 5, video backgrounds are the newest trend in web page design. When implemented correctly, a video background adds an evocative, stylish, and artistic element to a website. It may be best to think of it like this. Words and still pictures are great tools to inform website visitors about the company’s history and mission, the products and services that are offered, upcoming events, contact information, etc.. A video background is different. It is meant to convey feeling. Why is this important? Emotional response is a huge part of creating a brand. As is the…

    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. This is because to create your site again, to make it responsive or to make a mobile version, takes time and money, and that may not be something your business has budgeted for. We get it. As a small business, unexpected costs are the WORST!

Mobile friendly websites Any website that appears differently formatted to sit the device you are looking at a website on, so you have a good user experience.

    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…

  • Namespacing And Autoloaders In WordPress Plugins

    Paul
    17 Feb 2015 | 2:00 am
    One thing I have been experimenting with recently is adding namespacing and autoloaders to new WordPress plugins. What Are PHP Namespaces PHP namespaces was introduced in version 5.3. Namespaces is a way of grouping classes together into virtual directories, the main reason we would want to do this is to help avoid collision of class names in your application. In PHP you can not define two classes with the same name, if you do this PHP will display a fatal error in your application. Using namespaces means that you can define two classes with the same name as long as they are in different…

    “Web design” is not just pretty pictures, colors and features that look amazing, but have minimal functionality. Hate to break it to you. Yes, it’s true the team over at Facebook and other hugely popular website agonize over details like color and link position and what not… and it is true that design should enhance your content, but design is also about the experience you create for someone visiting. It’s the mini journey you take them on. If you do this well enough, even a website with a lackluster design and no products apparently for sale can make hundreds of…

    As of the 21st April 2015 Google are altering their mobile search algorithm in order to determine whether or not your site is mobile-friendly and responsive. If you don’t fall under these categories then you will likely see quite a drop in your SEO rankings, meaning that if you were considering shifting your web site to responsive, now really is the time to act.

    25 Mar 2015 | 3:08 am
    Way back in 2005 the nationwide web usability report stated that you should NEVER use horizontal scrolling web design for your websites. Why? Because apparently the whole UX of sideways scrolling was confusing to the user and it just doesn’t comply to conventional web design standards. However there has been a great shift in recent years with the creation of new technologies such as iPads and smartphones, where sideways scrolling is intuitive and a whole site’s information can be available to the user at the swipe of a fingertip. We recently discussed single-page websites and how…

Until that point web designers and developers must adhere to flexible design and embrace innovation in order to stay in business. With multiple devices having the ability to get online from desktops to TV’s, web designers are challenged with a digital paradox that balances between the usability and the aesthetics of a website and one must not outweigh the other.

    Enabling Nginx Modules One inconvenience with Nginx is that modules cannot be dynamically added or removed as they can in Apache. Instead, Nginx modules are specified at compile-time. If you want to add or remove any Nginx modules such as ngx_lua, ngx_http_secure_download_module, or nginx_uploadprogress_module you’ll either need to compile from source or find a PPA that meets your needs. Personally, I’ve decided to compile from source so I can include only the modules I want in order to reduce bloat. We’ll walk through recompiling Nginx 1.6.2 to install Google’s…

    Extra protection against brute force attacks While WordPress has an authentication system of its own, some opt to add additional server-side password protection to /wp-admin/ using basic authentication. This prompts users for a username and a password before even allowing access to the admin files and WordPress authentication. Password protecting wp-login.php is generally sufficient WordPress cautions that password protecting /wp-admin/ itself can break some WordPress functionality and plugins using AJAX. While the password protection can be configured to allow AJAX to bypass authentication,…

    If your application has any sort of login page or transmits sensitive information, it’s wise the make those sections accessible only via HTTPS. Even if your site has no sensitive information, it’s worth considering using HTTPS as Google now considers it a ranking signal. For any pages a general user will access, you’ll want to use an SSL certificate signed by a reputable third party to avoid browser warnings. There are a number of vendors out there offering certificates, but a free personal certificate from StartSSL will probably work fine for non-commerce sites.  …

    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.

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’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.

    When I was growing up, I remember people talking about technology as if it were this far off land full of exotic things. It seemed as though it would never be all around us like it is today. There were summers where my mom would pile us all in the family Astro van and drive us across the country so we could see the places that we don’t live near. My entertainment was not an iPod with thousands of songs on it. It was not a tv in the car (not that that wasn’t an option when I was younger, we just couldn’t afford it). I got to stare out the window. You may think I’m being dramatic, but…

It’s an exciting thought that, as utilities prices keep rising, our energy could become renewable and free. The question is: what do you do when there isn’t enough solar power saved? Thanks to some Ohio scientists, we may have an answer for that. (Check it out here) In the past, if people wanted to save solar energy for use later, they had to invest in very expensive solar batteries. There needed to be an apparatus to save energy, but the…

    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…
