  • Infographic: Shutterstock’s Color Trends 2014

    You The Designer
    Patrick Jude Ilagan
    28 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Shutterstock’s new infographic dives into finding which colors are trending for this year through their new infograhic, Color Trends. We know that red represents courage but it can also be associated with anger and blood. So it’s interesting when a nation chooses to douse its national flag in red. So that begs the question: why would a country risk choosing a color that can be associated with something so negative? As it turns out, every corner of the world has its own favorite color. And while trends do change (and who knows what colors were dominant back then), it’s…

    Every so often I sit back and take inventory of the tools I’m using with an eye on weeding some out and adding some in. Technology can be a tremendously useful thing when it comes to getting more productivity, but you must continually monitor what’s working and what’s not. Below are the twenty tools I rely on most for productivity in communications, marketing and collaboration. Workflowy – this is a simple outlining tool and I use it everyday to store notes, keep projects coming and going and even as my to do list. Lots of folks use Evernote in this fashion but Workflowy’s…

    What’s up, folks! Halloween is still days away but that doesn’t mean we are not getting ready to dress up for the occasion. We are pretty much hush-hush of our plans here since we want our costumes to be a surprise for everyone here at YTD. How about you guys? How are your costumes going? What sort of creepy creatures of the night are you guys planning to dress up like? Are you going to be a vampire? A witch? How about a werewolf? Or maybe even as Frankenstein’s monster? While we are still on the subject of creatures that go bump in the night as Hellboy says, we here in…

  • Great idea, poorly designed

    bokardo
    16 Sep 2014 | 5:57 am
    Rob Go of NextView Ventures makes a great point: saying “It’s been tried before” is a bad excuse to dismiss a product or startup. Rob says: “I’ve said those words before as well, both directly to entrepreneurs as well as in our internal conversations about companies. But I’m convinced that “it’s been tried before” is a terrible way to dismiss a startup idea. The reason is that this statement allows you to be way too intellectually lazy. It essentially says “… I’m just going to assume it won’t work because others before it failed.” Rob says that…
  • Three important points about listening to your customers

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

  • How architecture can inform UI design

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

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

  • Size Matters: Balancing Line Length And Font Size In Responsive Web Design

    Laura Franz
    29 Sep 2014 | 5:51 am
    As we refine our methods of responsive web design, we’ve increasingly focused on measure (another word for “line length”) and its relationship to how people read. 
The popularization of the “ideal measure” has led to advice such as “Increase font size for large screens and reduce font size for small screens.” While a good measure does improve the reading experience, it’s only one rule for good typography. Another rule is to maintain a comfortable font size. How People Read People read online text to serve their own needs: to find the information they seek, to discover new…
  • Sci-Fi, Frustrations, Flash And Forms: The Typeform Story

    David Okuniev
    26 Sep 2014 | 6:15 am
    Take any new interface design or display technology, and chances are that someone somewhere has already compared it to Minority Report. The 2002 dystopian film, with its see-through screens and gesture-driven interfaces, is remembered more for its futuristic tech than for the insidiousness of the technology — pre-crime prediction — that was its actual focus. It continues to be the standard by which we judge new interfaces. But inspiration doesn’t only come in the form of flashy, futuristic interfaces. At Typeform, we were inspired to simplify online forms by a movie that’s decidedly a…

  • Before You Hire Designers

    30 Sep 2014 | 7:00 am
    Before you hire a designer, set up the situation this person needs to be effective. Bringing any employee into an unprepared environment where they don’t have the tools or authority to succeed is unfair to them and a huge waste of your hard-earned money. It also burdens the other employees who aren’t sure what to do with this new person. A few years ago, I made plans with a friend for breakfast. She was late. When she finally got there, she apologized, saying she’d been cleaning up for the housecleaner. “Why in the world would you clean up for a housecleaner?!?” I asked. “So she…
  • Making Our Events More Inclusive For Those Under 21 (and Also Everyone Else)

    On Saturday, Benjamin Hollway, a 16 year old front-end developer, wrote a post about his recent experiences attending industry events. He’s been coding since he was eight, and earlier this year he was shortlisted for Netmag’s Emerging Talent category. Yet none of the people in this category are able to participate fully in the sort of activities most of us take for granted. Last week, Benjamin attended an event I spoke at in London. He’d saved up to buy a ticket and travel up to the conference, and after the event he followed everyone to the after party to chat about the conference…

  • Shellshock: A Bigger Threat than Heartbleed?

    25 Sep 2014 | 10:00 am
    Time to update those Linux servers again. A newly-discovered Linux flaw may be more pervasive, and more dangerous, than last spring’s Heartbleed. A newly discovered security bug in a widely used piece of Linux software, known as “Bash,” could pose a bigger threat to computer users than the “Heartbleed” bug that surfaced in April, cyber experts warned on Wednesday. Hackers can exploit a bug in Bash to take complete control of a targeted system, security experts said. The “Heartbleed” bug allowed hackers to spy on computers, but not take control of them. “Bash” Software…

    We call ourselves information architects, web designers or content strategists, among other job titles in the industry, including the occasional PHP ninja or SEO rockstar. The web does owe a lot to fields like architecture, industrial design, or marketing. I still haven’t met an interaction cook or maitre d’optimization, though. No web makers turn to chefs for inspiration, one might say. Well, some do. Let me take you, s’il vous plaît, to Lyon, France, where people think sliced bread is the greatest thing since the internet.

WordPress.com is a great hosted WordPress option that lets you get a WordPress site online quickly and for free without needing your own hosting.

  • Bookkeeping 101: What You Need to Know to Run Your Business

    Andrew Blackman
    8 Sep 2014 | 5:43 am
    Let’s face it, most entrepreneurs and business owners don’t know the first thing about double-entry bookkeeping, and they don’t want to know.For larger companies, that doesn’t matter: you just hire a specialist. But in the early days, you may not be able to afford full-time help. Even if you go to an accountant to help you prepare your annual tax return, you need to know the basics of how to keep your books in order throughout the year. Why does it matter? Because good accounts are the basis of a good business. If you don’t have an accurate grasp of your financial situation, your…

       Browsers are on the way to becoming full-fledged gaming platforms. Thanks to HTML5 and JavaScript developing complex applications is still loads of work, but possible. Quite a few game concepts don’t rely on visible mouse pointers, though. Especially while controlling an app keyboard-based, a visible mouse pointer can get annoying. Use the new Pointer Lock API to simply hide it as necessary.

  • WTF? Quirky and Unusual Packaging and Advertorial Designs

    Tara Hornor
    26 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
       For both packaging and advertisements, one of the most important elements is that the design stands out from its surroundings, whether this is on a shelf or in a magazine. The catch is that it shouldn’t just stand out, however. A good marketing design is one that will also capture attention long enough to leave a lasting impression on the consumer. And also just as important is that the lasting impression is one that accurately portrays the brand along with the product’s unique features and, more importantly, benefits.

    FANS OF ICON ART and The Big Web Show, listen up. Tomorrow’s Big Web Show guest is Justin Dauer (AKA @pseudoroom) of The Dead Pixel Society. Justin was a web icon artist in the mid-1990s, back when I also dabbled in the art. Indeed, it was talented folks like Justin and my friends at The Iconfactory who made me realize that specializing in icons was probably not going to be a thing for me, as they were so much better at it. Ah, for the days when a pixel was a pixel! To celebrate those times and that body of work, Justin has gathered together some of the best of those 1990s icon artists…
  • On Design Conferences

    Jeffrey Zeldman
    26 Sep 2014 | 9:18 am
    A GOOD CONFERENCE is a designed experience. I don’t mean a visually over-designed brandgasm. I mean an educational and emotionally considered narrative. To me, the ideal conference offers a single track, so that all attendees (and all speakers) share the same intense experience over one or more days. The content of each presentation should be discussed with the organizer far in advance of the show, just as the content of an issue of a magazine gets reviewed with editors long before the issue is published. Too many conferences focus on the mechanics and skimp on the up-front editorial…

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

Austin-based Knowbility is one of the few groups in the world with the commitment and expertise to change this. If enough of us fund their new IndieGogo project, they’ll gain the resources they need to create online modules that teach the world how to make our sites work for people with disabilities.

    This week on Unfinished Business, Harry Roberts and I have some pretty big, Boag-shaped, boots to fill after last week’s episode. Harry takes the opposite view to Paul about sharing personal struggles in a work context and worries about the impression that sharing give to prospective clients. Then we talk about how clients’ commissioning process for creative services is largely broken, the differences between an open conversation starter, an RFP and a brief and how we, as designers and developers, can help clients to commission what we do better.This week’s episode is…
  • ★ David Ogilvy on how clients should choose an agency

    Andy Clarke
    26 Sep 2014 | 2:20 am
    In the 1960s, advertising legend David Ogilvy offered advice on how clients should choose an agency in his book Ogilvy On Advertising. In it, he wrote: “Sir or Madam” (He was formal like that.) “If you have decided to hire a new agency, permit me to suggest a simple way to go about it. Don’t delegate the selection to a committee of pettifoggers. They usually get it wrong. Do it yourself.” (I don’t know what a pettifogger is, but if it’s anything like a committee, I don’t want to meet one.) “Start by leafing through some magazines. Tear out the…

We know that red represents courage but it can also be associated with anger and blood. So it’s interesting when a nation chooses to douse its national flag in red. So that begs the question: why would a country risk choosing a color that can be associated with something so negative? As it turns out, every corner of the world has its own favorite color. And while trends do change (and who knows what colors were dominant back then), it’s…

    If you're implementing responsive images (different images in HTML for different situations) and all you are doing is switching between different versions of the same image (the vast majority of usage), all you need is the srcset attribute on the <img>. Gaze upon this easy syntax: <img src="small.jpg" srcset="medium.jpg 1000w, large.jpg 2000w" alt="yah"> It's not just the syntax that is easy, it does a better job than <picture> with <source>s with explicit media attributes (we'll cover why in a moment).

Consistent Positioning If there is any way to make sure your pagination buttons don't move, do it. It's such a nice experience to be able to just click-click-click (or tap-tap-tap) and the same thing happens each time. And when you get to the end, a subsequent click doesn't all the sudden to something different (because you're now clicking on a different button, or nothing). If one button depends on the other for positioning, perhaps you could…

    Chris Coyier

    Jason Grigsby: Unless you're solving for art direction, you don't need to the element. In fact, you're likely doing your users a disservice by using the <picture> element.

The situation = the size the image will be displayed at, screen pixel density, and bandwidth. That's exactly what <img sizes="" srcset=""> is best at.

    18 Sep 2014 | 1:11 pm
    I've been coming around to the idea of using Susy (a Sass add-on for grids) lately. I like the idea of grids-on-demand, rather than a strict framework (no matter how simple). We even added support to CodePen. Last week I ran into Eric Suzanne, the creator of Susy, and I told him Zell Liew was working on a guest post for this site. He was "Oh, Zell! Yeah he's awesome, he's like the unofficial promoter and trainer for Susy." And so, here's Zell introducing us to Susy! Susy provides you with the tools to build your own grid layouts that match the needs of your website. She gives you the freedom…

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

    By default, buttons are boring. There is not point in sugar coating it. But, if you add just a few lines of CC to animate the buttons a tad the button will breath new life. I’m not talking about extreme fancy animations but simple CSS transitions like easing out the button’s background change on hover. Simple changes can go a long way in spicing up your whole interface. So, let’s see those five easy ways you can improve your buttons though CSS transitions.

  • The Use of Texture in Web Design

    17 Sep 2014 | 6:42 am
    These days textures in web design are vying with other trends such as transparency and gradients. The days of such textures as wood, grass and chalkboards seem to be fading, but as you will see in this article, they are still around and they still work well. A texture, whether it is used as a background or on elements, can add some interest to an otherwise plain design, and they work well with image-light websites. Take a look through this showcase that we have compiled and see if you think textures in web design are here to stay. Textures in Web Design Bahur78 This freelance web designer…
  • How to Use Storytelling to Design Delightful UX

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

  • The Single Var Pattern in JavaScript

    Jacob Gube
    29 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    One of the most beautiful things about JavaScript is its flexibility. The language gives developers a lot of slack by not giving us a lot of rules and conventions to deal with. A prime example: JavaScript allows us to create any type of variable, anywhere in our script (because it’s a dynamic programming language). That’s great news, but it can also be a double-edged sword if we don’t exercise a bit of caution. One popular way of working with JavaScript variables more effectively is the single var pattern. I first formally encountered this pattern in Stoyan Stefanov’s…
  • A List of CSS Style Guides for Inspiration

    26 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    Creating a set of CSS conventions — often called a CSS style guide — can streamline your web development workflow. It’s useful for large teams and solo developers alike. CSS style guides are a group of documents that outline the coding style, best practices, and visual design properties (e.g. colors, layout grid dimensions, etc.) of a site. The goal of having a style guide is to maintain consistency across a product.

    CSS is hard to maintain and scale without a well-defined approach. Here are five CSS development methodologies and style guides that can help. 1. SMACSS SMACSS stands for Scalable and Modular Architecture for CSS. A core idea behind this CSS development approach is minimizing the depth of selectors in order to keep them modular as well as to lower dependency on the HTML structure. In SMACSS, there are five style-rule categories: Base, Layout, Module, State, and Theme. 2. CSS Guidelines CSS Guidelines is a comprehensive guide for writing maintainable CSS.

    Chris Spooner
    28 Sep 2014 | 11:30 pm
    Back in the day, splash screens were a popular addition to websites. They were a frontal page that was displayed before the user accessed the main site, which typically featured a sparse layout incorporating just the website’s logo and guidance about which browsers and monitor resolutions were supported. Today we’re seeing a revival of the splash screen, although they’re much more visitor friendly than their ancestors. Modern examples of splash screens are built right into the main page, filling the screen with eye catching imagery but still only containing a logo or…

  • Building a Customer Management App Using AngularJS and Laravel

    Maciej Sopyło
    1 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    When creating a single-page app we should use some kind of framework to do some of the job for us so we can focus on the actual functionality. AngularJS fits here perfectly, because features like dynamic dependency injection and bi-directional data binding are just great. Sometimes we also require some kind of server. If you've chosen PHP then Laravel may be your best option, as it's easy to work with and pretty powerful. In this part of the tutorial, we will build the front-end of our application using AngularJS. Angular is a really unique framework. Instead of abstracting the HTML or…

    Bootstrap is a powerful, mobile-first, responsive, front-end framework that’s built with CSS, HTML, and JavaScript. It offers a ton of advantages over starting from scratch, and even over many other frameworks. Bootstrap was originally developed by a designer and developer from Twitter, it’s become one of the most popular front-end frameworks in the world. It was first known as Twitter Blueprint, before becoming open-source, and served as Twitter’s internal style guide for over a year before it was released publicly.

  • How to build websites fast, with the rapid prototyping workflow

    Dustin Cartwright
    30 Sep 2014 | 1:15 am
    Startups are notorious for bringing an idea from a concept to a finalized product fast. While there’s certainly something to be said for taking our time and doing in depth research at every milestone, sometimes we just need to get an idea up and running as soon as possible. Rapid prototyping in a startup culture slims the typical design and development process to hit the high points and retouch the lows after the fact. We can learn a lot from this methodology and apply it directly to our own work, even if that work isn’t for a startup. Strangely enough, this methodology often requires…

  • The Overnight Design Test

    Tom Kenny
    24 Sep 2014 | 8:23 am
    Are you struggling with a design but you know there’s some promise to it? Or are you so confident with a design you’re creating that you almost have the feeling it’s going too well? The overnight design test is for you. Constantly looking at the same design you’re working on can cloud your vision on how well the design works or simply how good it looks. Rest, get some sleep and return to it in the morning. This is the closest thing you have to looking at your work with a fresh pair of eyes. You’ll be able to asses it with a fresh mind to better judge the quality of your work. Use…

    Tom Kenny
    21 Oct 2013 | 2:24 am
    If you’ve been living under a rock lately you will have missed the launch of the new blogging platform, Ghost. I got in early by backing it on Kickstarter but I didn’t get a chance to look at creating a theme for it until a couple of days ago. So here it is, my first theme for Ghost, called Aura which is free for you to use however you like. It isn’t a groundbreaking theme by any means but I want to provide an alternative to the default theme, so your brand new blog powered by Ghost doesn’t look the same as all the others out there.

    It’s a bit shameful of Kent Web Host to be stealing a design like this but the situation is expertly handled by Jeremy Keith who calls up Kent Web Host and basically ridicules the owner. He does apologise at the end but it really shouldn’t have come to this. It seems like Kent Web Host have made some changes as they said the would in the phone call. I still don’t think it’s enough but at least they’re doing something about it, even if it’s a shame they had to be called out about it to prompt them to do something. The good thing I suppose now, is that it…

    David
    26 Sep 2014 | 5:55 am
    Everyone feels lonely at times, but not everyone suffers from a chronic feeling of loneliness… of feeling disconnected and cut off from other people. This type of loneliness is a loneliness from the best parts of you that no longer have any basic fundamental contact with life experience. You are lonely because you are alienated from life, Dead end streets Think of how you drive a car. You recognize potential dangers, potential time sucks, and potential mechanical problems as you drive so corrective action can be taken before you screw things up for yourself.

Or that girl who risked it all and moved to a foreign city to take a job that did not materialize. She can now be found working retail, stocking shelves late at night. Be scared… No, you must ignore these people in your life. It is not that they want to discourage you (OK they sort of do), but rather they care about you and do not want to see you do anything risky… Really, they worry for two reasons. The first is…

    Your thoughts help shape your reality. Understanding that is the first step towards fixing an uninspired life filled with a lack of interest. Often when  unhappiness sets in, we feel a void in our life. Something is missing and we’re not sure what. Instead of staring into that void directly to see what is actually missing. We go looking for a quick fixes. In a pointless attempt to fill that void in our lives, we amplify one other area of our life to make up for the lack.

  • Understanding Real Men: What Drives Them

    David
    26 Sep 2014 | 12:53 am
    Trying to learn the art of understanding men always boils down to understanding what drives us. If you want to understand the men in your life and why they do what they do, then keep these two points in your head: First, men are simple. Second, do not project how you think or feel onto how WE think or feel because the two have nothing in common. Men are not particularly complicated. We all are pretty similar in our thinking, and in what drives us. That is, 1) having our own life and identity, 2) doing something related to that identity, and 3)being compensated well enough for our efforts.

    For whatever reason, a lot of teenage girls find this site… Look, a man is either playing with you, or he is planning with you. Playing with you simply means he likes you, but does not see a future. He enjoys your company, sex, and spending time with you. In his heart however, he is not committed to you. You may be tricked into thinking otherwise, because he is nice to you and you do have good times together, but really he is just stringing you along. The man that is planning with you is much like the guy that is playing with you, but is different because he is definitely looking at you a…

    Let the Good Times Roll! Play and storytelling are not generally thought of as important pieces—let alone as crucial components—of social media and internet marketing; but they are (and this fact is becoming clearer and clearer). I’m not just talking about these things. I’m doing them.

  • How Authentic Value Is Bringing New Fire to My Marketing

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

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

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

    1 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    When creating a single-page app we should use some kind of framework to do some of the job for us so we can focus on the actual functionality. AngularJS fits here perfectly, because features like dynamic dependency injection and bi-directional data binding are just great. Sometimes we also require some kind of server. If you've chosen PHP then Laravel may be your best option, as it's easy to work with and pretty powerful. In this part of the tutorial, we will build the front-end of our application using AngularJS. Angular is a really unique framework. Instead of abstracting the HTML or…

  • How To Create a Realistic Aged Textured Logo Mockup

    Chris Spooner
    21 Sep 2014 | 11:00 pm
    Last week I shared a free set of rusty logo mockup textures that I collected from an old WW2 era aerodrome. The files included a Smart Object layer which allowed you to paste in your own artwork and have it applied to the surface, with all the fine details of the decay and corrosion also affecting your design to create a realistic mock up. I discovered a few interesting techniques when creating those textures, so in today’s tutorial I’ll explain the whole process of creating an aged weathered logo mockup of your own. In this tutorial I’ll show you some handy techniques to…

Show it off to the world How to do all those things, I must admit, was a little vague — until now. Let’s just say, I’ve just been enlightened by Michael Cavotta, certified personal brand strategist and professional headshot photographer. As it turns out, there’s more to it than a shot in the dark and a nice photo. “Personal branding,” explains Michael, “is the external expression of the…

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

Two days ago I listened to a speaker give a talk that I had trouble with.  It wasn’t so much the topic, which was confusing to start with.  It was supposed to be a positive talk about how, rather than the doom and gloom predicted for 2012 and the so-called “end times”, he found that more and more Light was evident.  Everywhere he could see were happy people participating in the uplifting of the planetary…
  • I Wasn’t Sure About the Pink

    7 Sep 2014 | 9:33 pm
    Just to prove how dangerous I can be editing CSS, I messed up the header in an attempt to remove some of the pink.  I think the color got back at me.  It wants to be here. Pink is not a popular color with websites according to color studies.  But I cheated and grabbed a WordPress theme and this one had lots of pink in it.  I removed most of it and replaced it with green.  Green is a nature color.  It matches the two yellow chairs in the photo on the homepage. Which of course I agonized over. I like the idea of the two yellow chairs placed on the homepage.  I imagine you are sitting…

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

As we quickly approach the three billion Internet user mark, the opportunities to connect and share creative and design inspiration with different cultures and mindsets are multiplying. There are big players, and global studios are opening more international offices, but they may not be as interesting or inspiring as the lesser known and possibly more regionally rooted creatives.

  • The ultimate guide to Bootstrap

    Cameron Chapman
    1 Oct 2014 | 1:15 am
    Bootstrap is a powerful, mobile-first, responsive, front-end framework that’s built with CSS, HTML, and JavaScript. It offers a ton of advantages over starting from scratch, and even over many other frameworks. Bootstrap was originally developed by a designer and developer from Twitter, it’s become one of the most popular front-end frameworks in the world. It was first known as Twitter Blueprint, before becoming open-source, and served as Twitter’s internal style guide for over a year before it was released publicly. If you’re unfamiliar with Bootstrap, the resources…
  • How to build websites fast, with the rapid prototyping workflow

    Dustin Cartwright
    30 Sep 2014 | 1:15 am
    Startups are notorious for bringing an idea from a concept to a finalized product fast. While there’s certainly something to be said for taking our time and doing in depth research at every milestone, sometimes we just need to get an idea up and running as soon as possible. Rapid prototyping in a startup culture slims the typical design and development process to hit the high points and retouch the lows after the fact. We can learn a lot from this methodology and apply it directly to our own work, even if that work isn’t for a startup. Strangely enough, this methodology often requires…

    As a small business owner, there are many ways to promote your product or brand. One of these ways is free and can have a huge reach: social media. Unfortunately, a lot of the entrepreneurs I have spoken to recently feel that the effect isn’t worth the effort. We also see that in our reviews, by the way. It doesn’t matter if we review a photographer’s website or the site of an IT agency, most seem to invest little time in social media efforts or campaigns. It’s hard to determine the ROI of a social media campaign. The tools that help in that determination are paid,…

I have known about SEO for many years now, as Joost never stops talking about it. I just never used the plugin to check my own writings myself, I simply asked him to do that. Being married to Joost de Valk just has it benefits and this was one of them. But, as I started to read more and more about SEO and my interest in blogging increased, I decided to do some search engine optimization on my own.

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

  • Popular Responsive Grids for Designing Website Layouts

    Jake Rocheleau
    30 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    When designing a website the grid is one of the most important factors. Both print and digital work is often created using grids because spacing can always be quantified. In this manner you can organize page elements with a formulaic approach instead of going off raw emotion. But how do you know which grid is the best choice? In this post I’d like to delve into the world of creating grids to see which strategies work best for responsive web design. Generally a grid structure is broken into even columns whereby you would combine parts of the grid to make larger page sections. Responsive…

  • How Media Monitoring Can Help Your Design Shop

    Spyre Studios
    23 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    Every business consultant, no matter what sector it may be, will tell you that your business has to have an online presence. If you’re a web or graphic designer running your own shop – even if you’re the only “employee” – your online presence is still “mandatory”. That means being on social media and consuming information from other  media – both online and offline – sources as well. Otherwise, your competitors will probably get ahead of you, reaching out to a much wider audience and pushing you out of the way.   Source More than establishing your design shop…
  • Building a Usable Style Guide for New Design Projects

    Jake Rocheleau
    22 Sep 2014 | 3:07 am
    When you think of creativity it can be expressed in many ways. Ideally a creative idea should exist in some capacity before the creator visits reality town and starts break dancing into his concept in the middle of Main Street. Ideas seem to come sporadically and while they are often created out of nothing, you don’t always have an infinite palette of nothingness to work from. I’d like to cover the idea of using a style guide to help direct the current of your workflow. Each new idea on each project deserves some immediate recognition. But good ideas should chain off each other to…

  • Creating Nice Notifications with jQuery

    Aurelio De Rosa
    8 Sep 2014 | 11:00 am
    Notifications are one of the most used features when developing a dynamic website. Whether your application is injecting a snippet of HTML in the web page or it's sending the data of a form filled by a user, your application needs to give some feedback to the users. There are a lot of different techniques you can employ to provide feedback to your users such as alert messages and dialog boxes. In this article, I'll explain how you can integrate nice notifications in your web pages through the use of a jQuery plugin called noty.

  • How to Use jQuery’s $.ajax() Function

    Aurelio De Rosa
    26 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
    Without any doubt Ajax has taken web development by storm and it's one of the most successful paradigms ever. In my article An Introduction to jQuery’s Shorthand Ajax Methods, I discussed some of jQuery's most used Ajax shorthand methods: $.get(), $.post(), and $.load(). They are convenient methods for making Ajax requests in a few lines of code. Sometimes, we need more control over the Ajax calls we want to make. For example, we want to specify what should happen in case an Ajax call fails or we need to perform an Ajax request but its result is only needed if retrieved within a certain…
  • JavaScript Animations in AngularJS Applications

    21 Aug 2014 | 12:00 pm
    AngularJS is a feature-rich framework for creating single-page web applications, bringing all capabilities that one needs for building rich and interactive apps. One of the key features that Angular brings is the support of animations. We can animate a portion of the application to indicate a change occurring. In my last article I covered the support of CSS animations in Angular applications. In this article, we will see how to leverage JavaScript to animate the AngularJS apps. In Angular, the only difference between CSS and JavaScript animations is their definition. There is no difference in…
  • An Introduction to jQuery’s Shorthand Ajax Methods

    Aurelio De Rosa
    20 Aug 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Raise your hand if you've never heard the term Ajax. I’ll bet almost all of you have your arms down, close to their body. Ajax, which originally stood for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, is one of the most used client-side methodologies, helping to create asynchronous websites and web applications. Performing Ajax calls using raw JavaScript is of course possible, but dealing with all the different parts of the code can be a pain. This is even more true if you have to support a prehistoric browser like Internet Explorer 6. Fortunately for us, jQuery provides a set of methods that deal with…
  • Faster YouTube Embeds with JavaScript

    Alexis Ulrich
    12 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
    We want our visitors to get our content as fast as possible, which means the content needs to be light, and with the minimum number of requests. But we want to keep users on our pages, and be entertained. This is where embedding videos enters the scene. Videos illustrate our textual content, bring life to it, and are often served by a third party. What more to ask? Well, there’s a hidden price tag: Videos are slow and heavy to download, even when the visitor is not watching them. One simple video on a page called through an innocuous iframe can add up to 6 HTTP requests and as much as 450kb…

    Layer styles are some of the first stylistic tools a designer encounters when they are learning to use Photoshop. They were created by Adobe as a way to add effects to layers without having to manually create them. Layer Styles are also non-destructive, meaning they can be added, edited, or removed without altering the original content of the layer they are applied to. Photoshop comes preloaded with a variety of Layer Styles, none of which should be used for anything more than your own experiments as you learn your way around them.

    I recently received a somewhat panicked email from a client, telling me her website was GONE. Needless to say she was pretty concerned about this. After I did some looking around in her hosting account, it appeared her domain name and hosting account were also gone. Not good. Further investigating revealed that they had been gone since ...

    Let me preface this post by stating right up front that I didn’t write this to make anyone happy but myself. Having said that, I didn’t write it to offend anyone either, I simply wrote it to get a lot of what’s been bugging me out of my busy little head and onto “paper”, so to speak. I also want to say that I did not just sit down and write this as a rant. I’ve been sitting on this for weeks, wanting to make sure that I had my thoughts together in a cohesive way, and I didn’t want it to appear like I was just going off on a tangent without any thought…
  • Protecting Your Website With the Wordfence Security Plugin

    Theresa Sheridan
    22 May 2014 | 5:54 am
    I had been looking at security plugins for my website for quite some time and had installed – and uninstalled – several during the process. I finally settled on the Wordfence Security plugin, and I have to say I am stunned at what could potentially be happening to my website. A common way that hackers get access to WordPress sites is by sending out bots that automatically attempt to log in to your website. The standard admin user name for WordPress in the past was “admin”, so the bots use that and then try computer generated passwords to attempt to log in to your site.

Memes have invariably managed to make a special place not only in the commercial field but also in the daily lives of people where most all over the globe skim through several memes multiple times in the day. Therefore, whether you are involved in a business or just want to spend your time doing something creative, memes are the way to go.

Their latest creation is called THAW which lets you use your smart phone as a tool to interaction with content on other screens like the one on your computer.

    Julia Blake
    25 Sep 2014 | 7:31 am
    It is all about perception when we talk about ugliness and beauty in web design. My ‘ugly’ may be your ‘beauty’ and vice versa, but how does it happen that many usable websites are ugly for the majority of users? ‘Usability comes first’ is a true rule of website development, but design plays not lesser importance in creating great user experience. Website designers make a huge mistake when focus around usability alone, just because it is thought to be more important for users. Usability and design should go together as CSS and PHP, as Header and Footer, as content and layout. A…

Keen designers want to leave their mark; to prove their creativity and talent through fresh concepts. Fair play to them. How else are we to ensure trends evolve and continue to keep us interested and excited? UX however, is a strange beast. A place where boundless creativity must be kept in check. Where any hint of misplaced arrogance can, and will, break a design; where “Reinventing the Wheel” is a trap best avoided. UX is about consistency. A Strange Encounter Today’s…

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

    Every day, we encounter more and more information. It’s estimated that the amount of information on the web doubles every two years, and increases tenfold every five years. How do we keep up? Short answer: we don’t. The number of internet users certainly doesn’t double every two years. As more and more content is created, more and more content is necessarily ignored. This presents a problem for content creators that has come to be known as Content Shock. Facebook, Google, and others have attempted to deal with this glut of content by curating our search results and news feeds more and…

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

    This is the fifth installment of my new monthly feature on Type & Grids where I pick my favorite type-driven websites from the previous month and then write a little about the typographic details behind the design. You can check out last month’s post for May here. Grinders Coffee A condensed version of Clarendon is combined with the ultra-condensed free font League Gothic. Minion is used as the text face and pairs very nicely with the two condensed faces.

However, on a closer look it has a less-geometric, more playful feel to it. It’s a great match for the illustration style of Nigel Evan Dennis. Check out other sites using the font Sofia on…

    Email is without a doubt the most effective way to generate repeat traffic.I’ve said it before, other tactics like Social Media just don’t compare to an Email list! It is more likely to be opened, links clicked and has a proven track record of higher purchases and engagement. One single email subscription is worth multiple Facebook fans!So how exactly do you start an email list?Does it cost money? Maybe, but it doesn’t have to – at least in the beginning. Luckily there’s a service out there called MailChimp which offers a free Email Newsletter service up to…

    A year ago we released node-bourbon, our port of thoughtbot’s excellent Bourbon library to node-sass. Node-sass is a Node.js wrapper of LibSass, an extremely fast version of Sass written in C/C++. The original version of Sass is written in Ruby which — while a wonderful language — can be a bit slow. With the forthcoming anniversary, we figured it was due time we wrote a blog post about it. In case you’re not familiar, Bourbon is a mixin library for Sass, the popular CSS preprocessor. Bourbon provides a great amount of utility while appreciatively remaining lean and…

    From day one, my business has been a laboratory for experimentation. My time spent working in the music industry piqued my interest in entrepreneurship and small business ventures, but I initially knew very little about running a design studio. With no previous experience as a design employee, my company was a blank canvas for how a design studio could be run. Of course, this has resulted in plenty of mistakes and hard lessons but over time, I’ve continually welcomed the opportunity to experiment with all aspects of the business. In the same manner that we use design thinking to deliver…
