  • Design Patterns: The Simple Factory Pattern

    When you think of a factory, what comes to mind? For me, it's a place where things are created - that is, it's a centralized placed where things are produced. Later, the delivery of said products are done by the factory based on an order.Let's say that you're requesting a car - a factory will create one based on the specifications of the work order and will then deliver it once it's complete.Just as their real world counterparts, software factories (that is, software that implements the factory design pattern), is an object that's responsible for creating and delivering other objects based on…
  • 5 Web Design Tips You Probably Haven’t Heard Before

    Here on Inspect Element, I don’t want to just give you standard advice that you’ve heard before, although there is value in that. I still refresh myself on things I learnt years ago. Alongside that, hearing advice multiple times helps it settle in more as it takes 7 times to retain new information. Saying that, I don’t want to give you “standard” advice, I want to go above and beyond with advice that will help you get more out of your web design career. 1.

  • 20 Web Designs with Creative Hand Drawn Typography

    18 Jan 2015 | 11:30 pm
    Of all the canvases available to designers and illustrators, websites designs are probably the last place you would expect to find hand drawn typography, seeing as web design at its core is very mathematical with interfaces crafted in code. Rather than make use of web fonts and digital layouts, some designers express their creativity by using hand crafted elements in their work to add character to a design. Today’s post showcases 20 websites that are all made with hand drawn components, particularly hand crafted typography. Hochburg Inesplorato Circles Conference Regis Biron Vintage…

  • Tips on how to hire a good designer

    bokardo
    14 Jan 2015 | 10:32 am
    It seems like everyone is hiring designers! They’re hiring product designers, UX designers, creative directors, directors of design, UI designers, visual designers, etc. There are even acquihires of entire design teams! So…how do you find a good designer? First, a quick backstory for people who have never read my blog before. Until this past August I was the Director of UX at HubSpot, a SaaS marketing company here in Boston that went public in October. So for three years (in which HubSpot was growing quickly) I was the hiring manager for product designers and UX specialists. There is…
  • Does Apple care any more?

    7 Jan 2015 | 7:17 am
    Marco Arment, in his recent post Apple has lost the functional high ground: “But the software quality has fallen so much in the last few years that I’m deeply concerned for its future. I’m typing this on a computer whose existence I didn’t even think would be possible yet, but it runs an OS with embarrassing bugs and fundamental regressions.” After hypothesizing that Apple’s priorities are out of whack, he writes: “I fear that Apple’s leadership doesn’t realize quite how badly and deeply their software flaws have damaged their reputation, because if they…
  • In detail: Designing in context for mobile

    bokardo
    3 Jan 2015 | 8:08 am
    I’m noticing an interesting practice emerging when designing for mobile: in-context messages that help you learn or give feedback about an app. Here’s an example: In this example from the New York Times Now app, the designers have dropped in a “quick tip” to let you know that you can swipe left to discover new content in the “Our Picks” section. Swiping in this way does the same thing that tapping on the arrow in the nav bar. This is a really nice way to let people know something, in this case that an action is available. (That said, I think it could be…
  • In detail: Square’s email receipt and feedback flow

    bokardo
    29 Dec 2014 | 7:35 am
    Since paper receipts aren’t very useful these days, I’ve been choosing recently to have my receipts emailed to me. The other week I filled out my email address on a Square checkout device at my local coffee house (Atomic Cafe) and didn’t think much of it. But when I read the email receipt later I noticed that the Square designers had very nicely embedded a feedback flow into the email. Nice UI details: Feedback is embedded into the receipt. This has several positive effects. First, it ties the feedback to the actual transaction that the person just had and not some amorphous…
  • The problem with “we’ll fix it later”

    bokardo
    23 Dec 2014 | 6:59 am
    I was talking to a design team yesterday and one of the team members casually mentioned that they were launching something new. I took a quick look at what they were planning to launch and it was clear that something wasn’t quite right…there was a weird UI bug and some data looked off. So I pointed those things out and was told “Oh yeah, we know. We’re going to fix it later”. Those words, so subtle. I’ve said them many times. I’ve had the exact same attitude at a release. But the more I hear them the more I realize they’re deadly. Consider the negative effects…

  • How And Why To Make Side Projects Work At A Digital Agency

    Danny Bluestone
    23 Jan 2015 | 3:37 am
    It’s no secret that the digital industry is booming. From exciting startups to global brands, companies are reaching out to digital agencies, responding to the new possibilities available. However, the industry is fast becoming overcrowded, heaving with agencies offering similar services — on the surface, at least. Producing creative, fresh projects is the key to standing out. Unique side projects are the best place to innovate, but balancing commercially and creatively lucrative work is tricky. So, this article looks at how to make side projects work and why they’re worthwhile,…
  • AngularJS’ Internals In Depth

    Nicolas Bevacqua
    22 Jan 2015 | 6:03 am
    AngularJS presents a remarkable number of interesting design choices in its code base. Two particularly interesting cases are the way in which scopes work and how directives behave. The first thing anyone is taught when approaching AngularJS for the first time is that directives are meant to interact with the DOM, or whatever manipulates the DOM for you, such as jQuery (get over jQuery already1!). What immediately becomes (and remains) confusing for most, though, is the interaction between scopes, directives and controllers. After the confusion sets in, you start learning about the advanced…
  • How To Have Users Spread Your Innovation Like Wildfire

    Victor Yocco
    21 Jan 2015 | 5:51 am
    As members of design teams, we want as many people as possible to use what we create. This is true whether we are designing a specialized medical device for a specific type of surgery or something more mainstream, like a smartphone or video game console. We often focus on the importance of ensuring our product is usable. Less often, we discuss other factors related to people accepting and using our products. Users don’t automatically or simultaneously accept even the best ideas and most useful technologies. Acceptance and adoption happens in stages, and in order to stick, it has to happen…
  • Creating Well-Behaved Sites With The Page Visibility API

    Dudley Storey
    20 Jan 2015 | 5:34 am
    We’re all resigned to it: launching a browser reloads every tab you previously had open, blasting a cacophonous mix of sound and video. While browsers have made it easier to control this experience with tab icons and extensions like MuteTab, for most people this behavior presents a confusing and disorienting experience. As developers and designers it’s our job to make the web welcoming, not overwhelming. Doesn’t it make sense that sites should only be active when they are the primary focused tab? Why are we burning up batteries and processor cycles with animation that can’t be seen?
  • Using Motion For User Experience On Apps And Websites

    Drew Thomas
    19 Jan 2015 | 5:43 am
    Digital experiences are emulating real life more and more every day. This may seem counterintuitive, considering the hate that rains down on skeuomorphic visual design, but there’s a lot more to emulating real life than aesthetics. Interface designers can emulate real-life physics and movement on a digital screen. This type of motion is becoming more common, which is why it’s becoming easier for people to understand computers. We’re not getting better, the interfaces are! A quick and common example is how iOS opens and closes apps. The transitions are very subtle, but…

  • Variable Fonts for Responsive Design

    23 Jan 2015 | 5:30 am
    Choosing typefaces for use on the web today is a practice of specifying static fonts with fixed designs. But what if the design of a typeface could be as flexible and responsive as the layout it exists within? The glass floor of responsive typography Except for low-level font hinting and proof-of-concept demos like the one Andrew Johnson published earlier this week, the glyph shapes in modern fonts are restricted to a single, static configuration. Any variation in weight, width, stroke contrast, etc.—no matter how subtle—requires separate font files. This concept may not seem so bad in…

    22 Jan 2015 | 5:30 am
    Not long ago at the Refresh Pittsburgh meetup, I saw my good friend Ben Callahan give his short talk called Creating Something Timeless. In his talk, he used examples ranging from the Miles Davis sextet to the giant sequoias to try to get at how we—as makers of things that seem innately ephemeral—might make things that stand the test of time. And that talk got me thinking. Very few of the web things I’ve made over the years are still in existence—at least not in their original state. The evolution and flux of these things is something I love about the web. It’s never finished;…

As part of NASA Social, I was lucky enough to get some behind-the-scenes tours, and to talk with scientists, engineers, astronauts, and even the Administrator himself. The day before launch, there was a two-hour event featuring the leaders of various NASA departments, with the discussion centered on Orion’s future missions—including the first (of hopefully many) crewed journeys to Mars.

  • A Vision for Our Sass

    20 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    At a recent CSS meetup, I asked, “Who uses Sass in their daily workflow?” The response was overwhelmingly positive; no longer reserved for pet projects and experiments, Sass is fast becoming the standard way for writing CSS. This is great news! Sass gives us a lot more power over complex, ever-growing stylesheets, including new features like variables, control directives, and mixins that the original CSS spec (intentionally) lacked. Sass is a stylesheet language that’s robust yet flexible enough to keep pace with us. Yet alongside the wide-scale adoption of Sass (which I applaud),…

    UNEXAMINED PRIVILEGE is the real source of cruelty in Facebook’s “Your Year in Review”—a feature conceived and designed by a group to whom nothing terrible has happened yet. A brilliant upper-middle-class student at an elite university conceived Facebook, and college students, as everyone knows, were its founding user group. The company hires recent graduates of expensive and exclusive design programs and pays them several times the going rate to brainstorm and execute exciting new features. I’m not saying that these brilliant young designers are heartless, or that individuals…

    27 Dec 2014 | 10:29 am
    AFTER USING the web for twenty years, and software for an additional ten, I’ve come to believe that I suffer from an affliction which I will hereby call “designer blindness.” Put simply, if an interface is poorly designed, I will not see the data I looked for, even if it is right there on the page. On a poorly designed table, I don’t find the column containing the answer I sought. On a poorly designed interface, I don’t push the right buttons. On a poorly designed social sharing site, I delete my data when I mean to save it, because the Delete button is in the…

    I love my mom. She lives in California, so I love how technology brings us closer together, too. But sometimes helping her cope with her hardware and software can be challenging. Comedian Tommy Johnagin, on his album “Standup Comedy 3,” has a hilarious bit about providing tech support for his own mom. Warning: recently I…

    I don’t link to a lot of infographics here but I like this one, and I’ve always been fascinated by the incremental, barely noticed way some interfaces can change, even when we look at them all day long. This extensive graphic from 7dayshop.com presents a pretty comprehensive overview of how iOS has evolved. The original…

    This is a twenty-three minute video that overlays every episode of season one of the TV series “Friends” directly on top of one another, resulting in a frighteningly shrill nightmare of sitcom inanities. It also happens to be sublimely lovely in parts, not to mention transfixing. You’re welcome! + Share Facebook Twitter Google+

    When people ask if I’ve seen any good movies lately, I tend to answer that, with three kids and a surfeit of side projects, I hardly ever get to watch anything. But looking back at the past twelve months, I realize that somehow I did manage to see a decent number of the year’s more…

  • ★ Workshopping down under in March 2015

    Andy Clarke
    12 Jan 2015 | 12:48 am
    I have more than a soft spot for Australia. It’s where I’d live if that were possible and where I can see myself retiring to in, you know, twenty or so years. Luckily, I’m going back to Australia long before that, this March in fact, to speak at the fabulous Respond conference and to take my CSS For Responsive Web Design workshop on the road to Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth, as well as Sydney itself.I’ve worked with the folks at Web Directions for many years, so I could not be happier that they’ve invited me to keynote at their Respond conference on March 19th…
  • ★ Some things about Unfinished Business will be a little different this year.

    Andy Clarke
    12 Jan 2015 | 12:04 am
    If you’re a fan of my Unfinished Business podcast, you’ve only a few more weeks to wait until the next episode. It will be back (with episode 101) on the ninth of February and when it does, things will be a little different.When Anna and I started Unfinished Business at the start of 2013, the format was just us talking to each other. Although our friend Rachel sat in for me early in our run, Anna and I didn’t want to talk with guests on a regular basis. We certainly never wanted to interview those guests about what they were working on or what was inspiring them. There were,…
  • ★ It’s a mugs game. Bodum vacuum travel mug review

    Andy Clarke
    29 Dec 2014 | 5:11 am
    I care a lot about the things that I use everyday. I need them to be the nicest that I can buy, or at least afford. This means that I care a lot about my computer, phone and the sleeves I keep them safe in. I also care about the pen I write with and most recently about the mug I drink from every day.These days I don’t travel as much as I used to. Most weeks include just a fifteen minute drive to work and an occasional train ride to Manchester or London, so while the Bodum vacuum travel mug is, as its name implies, a mug to take traveling, I like mine so much I use it all day, every day,…

    Andy Clarke
    22 Dec 2014 | 5:03 pm
    Ten years ago, in 2005, my friend Drew MacLellan asked if I would contribute a short article to the then new 24ways, “advent calendar for web geeks” and “a daily dose of web design and development goodness” throughout December.At the time I’d just finished a design for a company I owned and had written about some of the techniques I’d used in my chapter of the ‘Web Standards Creativity’ book. It made sense to expand on those techniques for 24ways, so I wrote about CSS’ z-index property and stole my title from Pulp Fiction, ‘Z’s…
  • ★ This Englishman’s top five country music albums of 2014

    Andy Clarke
    22 Dec 2014 | 9:23 am
    I know that my taste in country music’s mainstream. Mainstream enough that some country aficionados might criticise my ‘this Englishman’s’ lists for not straying far enough from the top of the country charts. The truth is, I like catchy country pop, and while next year I will try harder to discover music that’s further from the stereotypical southern dirt road, this year I’m happy to listen to songs about beer, cut-off jeans and cowboy boots, fishing in lakes and trucks and tractors.Even staying mainstream, choosing albums to make my list been tough this…

  • Windows of New York by José Guízar

    Look out your window and tell us what you see. A window is an integral part of a house, an office and just about any structure with 4 walls. Some like it open, some like it shut while others leave room for a little sunlight. Most designers fight over work stations right by a window for natural light and inspiration. While we enjoy looking out the window, we found a guy  who enjoys looking AT windows. New York residents, look out your window because graphic designer José Guízar might be outside obsessing about your windowpane. His project, Windows of New York, showcases illustrations of…

  • The Canada wordmark

    David Airey
    21 Jan 2015 | 6:58 am
    Originally designed to promote travel to Canada, the design was adopted as a global identifier of the Government of Canada in 1980. “I designed the Canada logo while working at MacLaren Advertising on a campaign for the Canadian Government Travel Bureau. Other government departments began to use the logo and, eventually, the Government adopted it as their official logo.”— JIM DONOAHUE Designed by Jim Donoahue in 1965, the wordmark seems to be a customisation of Baskerville (I’ll update the post if Jim’s able to send clarification). — Update: Jim kindly replied to say, “The…

    The following is excerpted from Champions of Design 4, the latest book by jkr that gives an insight into the world’s most successful brands. Red Bull Soapbox Derby, photo credit Under the leadership of Austrian brand owner Dietrich Mateschitz, Red Bull’s epic forays into art, racing, flying and even space have made the brand a global phenomenon. In terms of experience and communication, Mateschitz’s company added incalculable value to the brand. Where they didn’t add value was the design of the original Thai energy drink. And that of course, is what has added value.

    Elmwood designed this logo in partnership with the Maguire family, for the Ann Maguire Arts Education Fund. The idea aims “to capture the spirit of aspiration and achievement that is central to the charity’s purpose.” The late Ann Maguire spent more than 40 years working as a teacher. She had a passion for helping students to reach their potential. Tragically, Ann was killed in her classroom at Corpus Christi Catholic College in Leeds in April 2014. Following her death, Ann’s family set up the Ann Maguire Arts Educational Fund to celebrate her life and carry on her legacy. The charity…

    CSS-Tricks

  • “Of” vs “On” the Web

    Chris Coyier
    24 Jan 2015 | 7:14 am
    Jeremy Keith attempts to make this distinction, using Angular and the concept of "enterprise" software as the catalyst. "Of the web": Built of fundamental principles of the web. Universal access. "On the web": The web as a delivery mechanism. The owners dictate use. Jeremy, who has been banging the progressive enhancement drum since forever, is predictably an "of the web" kinda guy. He only takes issue with the fact that other folks might be forced into working against their principals because of an above-their-head software choice. I'm slightly less concerned. It actually makes me feel…

    Remember Tim Evko's guest post on responsive images in WordPress? Here's some news on that: It's now the official WordPress plugin of the Responsive Images Community Group (RICG). It's on on GitHub here and in the Plugin Directory. It now uses the more appropriate srcset attribute instead of <picture>, since it just does resolution switching. It's endorsed by the WordPress core team, on track to be a "featured plugin" in the next release, and may ultimately end up in core itself. Pretty cool!

    Have you seen THIS IS WATER? It's great. It's about choosing to think differently, especially when frustrated. I think about it all the time. For instance, every time someone cuts me off on the road, I assume they are rushing someone to the hospital. It doesn't always work, but it's nice when it does. And it's not just a trick, it's learning to think differently. In a related vein, I've enjoyed attempting to practice gratitude the last few years. I have an app on my phone that bugs me to write something I was grateful for that day. Forcing yourself to look back on the day and be thankful for…

  • Create an Appealing and Visually Connected Tagline

    Stoney deGeyter

    Great taglines are short, memorable, and visually connected to your logo. Think about it, when you hear “just do it”, do you think of the Nike swoosh? 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…

    There are 2 questions you should ask yourself, because they have a huge impact on what you will achieve, both in business and life in general. Here they are: What do I want? What am I prepared to do, to get what I want? What do I want? Many people waste years spinning their wheels, because they don’t really know what they want from their business or their life. Instead of living life by design, they go from day to day reacting. They often find themselves a part of other people’s plans — working hard for clients and customers, yet making little real progress in their own business. Trying…

  • 10 Tips for Designing Static Ads

    Carrie Cousins
    21 Jan 2015 | 6:00 am
    Designing the perfect static ad is no easy feat. It might even be impossible. Designing ads can go against many of the things you think as a designer. Many companies want to cram as much information into a space as possible and many users put up roadblocks when it comes to viewing ads. The catch is creating something that people want to interact with, despite the fact that it’s an ad. The advantage of a static ad is that is seems less obtrusive than some animated, audio or video options. They also have a classic style about them that makes designing fun. Here are 10 tips for creating an ad…

The downside of the digital revolution is isolation. The web allows us to do alone what would have previously taken a team of people. It also frees us from the constraints of geography letting us work from home. However, although these can appear to be benefits they also leave us isolated in our endeavours. The dangers of isolation Over time working in isolation (even if you work as part of a greater…

    As digital becomes business critical we need to re-evaluate the skills of digital professionals. Currently we overvalue technical competency at the expense of other more important attributes. If you are a front-end coder, server side developer or even designer, I want to let you in on a secret. Those technical skills you have worked so hard to learn will soon become obsolete. In my 20 years of working on the web I’ve seen many technologies come and go. Flash developers who spent years honing their skills only to find them become obsolete within a couple of years.

    Forex is another of the guilty pleasures I enjoy on a daily bases. To become specialist in any field takes years of full-time practise. I do not have that luxury in Forex so for me its simply Forex gambling which provides little daily adrenaline rush. I only take one trade a day and the trade is open with “take profit” and “stop loss” positions set, so I know exactly how much I can loose or gain. There is only about 1 percent of traders in green numbers, I have been lucky so far to be part of this group but you never know…I still call it gambling.

Audio books are great as you can get through a big book in no time, what more, you can do that while doing other activities such are gym, running, ironing. iBooks are also great, specially when traveling as they don’t add extra weight to your luggage. I still find a space in my life for paper books as time goes. There is nothing like the feeling of turning the paper, smelling the book and just simply having real” object in your hands.

    Probably THE best Diablo 3 clone? Lost Ark is a Korean-made action-RPG that looks a lot like Blizzard’s Diablo 3, just…. nicer!   Developed by Tripod Studio, the game surely does look amazing, though at the moment it doesn’t look like there will be a Western release.  For more information, visit Lost Ark’s website Share

It does this by converting your code to CSS that’s understood by today’s web browsers.

    This is a guest post by Jerry Cao, coauthor of The Guide to Mockups. In this article, I will discuss the various levels of UI design mockup fidelity to help you choose the best option. Web designer Brad Frost summarizes the progression of design fidelity best, using an analogy: You start out with a big slab of rock, and slowly chip away to get the rough shape of the form you’re creating. You take another pass at it to get a better sense of the object you’re trying to extract from the stone. You take another pass to start getting a bit more detailed. Eventually, you start honing in…
  • Why I Ditched Angular for React

    Jacob Gube
    16 Jan 2015 | 7:30 am
    A few years ago, when my code started to get cluttered with jQuery selectors and callbacks, AngularJS came to my rescue. Angular helped me with the maintainability of my dev projects. It came with a lot of functionality out-of-the-box. It was tooled for building large-scale web apps, greatly facilitating rapid development in this genre of applications. I remember how its two-way binding and the philosophy of Model as the single source of truth blew me away. And, in practice, they reduced data-redundancy throughout my applications. Over time though, I discovered some pain points in Angular.

    Of all the canvases available to designers and illustrators, websites designs are probably the last place you would expect to find hand drawn typography, seeing as web design at its core is very mathematical with interfaces crafted in code. Rather than make use of web fonts and digital layouts, some designers express their creativity by using hand crafted elements in their work to add character to a design. Today’s post showcases 20 websites that are all made with hand drawn components, particularly hand crafted typography. Hochburg Inesplorato Circles Conference Regis Biron Vintage…

  • Breaking Up With Your Clients The Mathematical Way

    Casey Ark
    11 Jan 2015 | 11:30 pm
    If you’ve been in the web design game for a while, you’ve probably recognized a few immutable truths: 1) Clients can be exceedingly hard to come by, and 2) Many of the clients you do get are evil on a very basic level. While nearly all clients are a kind, patient, understanding bunch, the few that aren’t can be devastating to your stress level, and your business. If there’s an 80/20 rule for dealing with web design clients, it’s that 20% of your clients will suck 80% of your soul (and then some). Bad clients don’t just take up time, the sheer stress of dealing with unreasonable…

    When you think of a factory, what comes to mind? For me, it's a place where things are created - that is, it's a centralized placed where things are produced. Later, the delivery of said products are done by the factory based on an order.Let's say that you're requesting a car - a factory will create one based on the specifications of the work order and will then deliver it once it's complete.Just as their real world counterparts, software factories (that is, software that implements the factory design pattern), is an object that's responsible for creating and delivering other objects based on…

    If you've worked with blocks in C/Objective-C or lambdas in Ruby, then you won't have a hard time wrapping your head around the concept of closures. Closures are nothing more than blocks of functionality that you can pass around in your code.As a matter of fact, we've already worked with closures in the previous two articles. That's right. Functions are closures too. Let's start with the basics and inspect the anatomy of a closure. 1. What Is a Closure?As I said, a closure is a block of functionality that you can pass around in your code.

    If you work with a team, then you may be struggling with the question of how to best collaborate. Sure, you can e-mail files around; but that quickly gets cumbersome, and can make it hard to keep track of which is the current version. If two team members make changes at the same time, integrating them can become a nightmare. If you’re still using email as your primary means of communicating with your remote team (or even the team in your office) then you really need to look into a dedicated collaboration tool.

    Whenever someone starts a new website, one of the very first things they’re sure to do is install Google Analytics. It doesn’t seem to matter what the content will be, what level of expertise the website owner has, or even whether they have any intention of ever looking at the resulting stats — yes, we’ve known bloggers who, after installing the analytics plugin, never went back. It’s become the non-negotiable, must-have tool for all; but when you dig a little deeper into what it can do for you, it starts to read like something out of a whodunit novel.

  • UX is Key to Branding. Here’s Why.

    Tom Kenny
    14 Jan 2015 | 2:26 am
    In the last issue of Learn from Great Design, I mentioned that user experience is an important component of branding. I want to elaborate on that just to underline the importance. First of all, let’s look at what a brand is not. A brand is not just visual. There’s so much more to it than just a logo, which is a common mistake. A brand can be better thought of as others’ perception of the company, product or service. If a website is frustrating to use, what will you think of it? You may well think they don’t care about making things easier for you, which will taint the perception…

Many agencies and freelancers do this through introducing themselves on their landing page: 'Hello, my name is.../ we are....', and this is a tried and tested friendly approach that interests people. However, there are other means of interacting with visitors and giving a certain first impression – this could lead to attracting only a niche market, but if that is the agency's strength, then aiming for those types of clients can't be wrong.

Saying that, I don’t want to give you “standard” advice, I want to go above and beyond with advice that will help you get more out of your web design career. 1.

  • UX is Key to Branding. Here’s Why.

    Tom Kenny
    14 Jan 2015 | 2:26 am
    In the last issue of Learn from Great Design, I mentioned that user experience is an important component of branding. I want to elaborate on that just to underline the importance. First of all, let’s look at what a brand is not. A brand is not just visual. There’s so much more to it than just a logo, which is a common mistake. A brand can be better thought of as others’ perception of the company, product or service. If a website is frustrating to use, what will you think of it? You may well think they don’t care about making things easier for you, which will taint the perception…
  • Learn from Great Design: Orangina

    Tom Kenny
    8 Jan 2015 | 5:23 am
    Orangina’s homepage The website for Orangina is dripping with character (pun intended). It’s fun, colourful and alive. In this edition of Learn from Great Design, I will be looking at how an external design agency has breathed new life into the website of a drink brand almost 80 years old. Having just been to Japan for six weeks, as part of travelling the world for a year with my wife, soft drinks have been a source of fascination for me. The selection in Japan is tremendous, so when I came across the Orangina site, I immediately knew I wanted to review it because we can learn from the…
  • The 80/20 Hybrid Approach to Designing in the Browser

    Tom Kenny
    4 Dec 2014 | 9:23 am
    Designing in the browser has been a point of discussion for a few years now and still is. With the web design world switching to flat design, designing in the browser has been seen as the future, but it is really that effective? The Search for Speed The driving force behind designing in the browser is the desire to improve the speed at which we design and build websites in a responsive world where we can present our work to clients/bosses on multiple devices. It’s a search I’m fully behind but we need to be careful about not degrading the quality of our work just for the sake of speeding…

    26 Nov 2014 | 7:51 am
    Welcome to the first in a monthly series about great web design, where I dissect the best websites out there, and show you what makes them great. On our last trip to Iceland we hired a car from Avis Car Hire’s UK website and it was a fantastic experience. Their website is by far the best I’ve ever used to book a rental car. Not that that was saying much because they’ve pretty much been stuck ten years in the past. The design is beautiful but it doesn’t let that beauty get in the way of a great, usable experience. In fact, it contributes to the experience as I will show you but you…

  • Immutable.js – Immutable Collections for JavaScript

    Ray Cheung
    22 Jan 2015 | 11:36 pm
    Immutable data cannot be changed once created, leading to much simpler application development, no defensive copying, and enabling advanced memoization and change detection techniques with simple logic. Persistent data presents a mutative API which does not update the data in-place, but instead always yields new updated data. Immutable.js provides Persistent Immutable List, Stack, Map, OrderedMap, Set, OrderedSet and Record. They are highly efficient on modern JavaScript VMs by using structural sharing via hash maps tries and vector tries as popularized by Clojure and Scala, minimizing the…

  • Slide-in Content Filter Powered by CSS and jQuery

    Ray Cheung
    19 Jan 2015 | 11:57 pm
    A well-designed filter is a powerful tool users can take advantage of. It is actually an essential feature if your website has lots of content, distributed across different categories. For an e-commerce, it is a way to increase conversion rates by reducing the time needed by the user to find what he’s looking for. Building this kind of features is never easy: filters highly depend on the website content; besides a filter panel shouldn’t be distracting, the main focus should be the content/products. Hence, Codyhouse tried to simplify a bit your life by building an easy-to-customize and…

    We need to talk about Facebook games. I believe if you’re on Facebook, you are either on the team that plays games, or the team that does not. The former basically taps into Facebook for favors from friends while the latter runs the "Please do not invite me anymore" recording on loop. The bad news is, this is going to keep going on for as long as you are still on Facebook. The good news is, you don’t have to sever ties with friends who "just don’t get it that I do not want to be a part of their Villes". The what-you-should-know news is that whether you play…

Later, the delivery of said products are done by the factory based on an order.Let's say that you're requesting a car - a factory will create one based on the specifications of the work order and will then deliver it once it's complete.Just as their real world counterparts, software factories (that is, software that implements the factory design pattern), is an object that's responsible for creating and delivering other objects based on…

If you’re not familiar with PatterNodes it certainly wouldn’t come as a surprise – the program is tremendously useful but doesn’t have the same cult following as other design suites due mainly to the fact that it is a brand new product. PatterNodes is a Mac OS X tool for generating vector-quality patterns based on manual input from the designer. It offers controls based on pattern size, spacing, colors, and of course imagery located within the design. The following post covers…

Nobody is inherently born with an understanding of Photoshop – it takes years of practice and lots of screw-ups to become even remotely good. Yet it seems that rendering and selecting an object always remains one of the most difficult tasks to incorporate into regular workflow. In the past I covered a method of selecting objects using the Photoshop pen tool. Although it’s always an option, the pen tool is traditionally considered to be the most complicated method.

    Advertise here with BSAWeb designers around the world have been captivated by Shopify. It’s an online e-commerce CMS which is self-hosted and managed by the Shopify team. Webmasters can purchase their own domain name and launch a store just like any regular website – but without deep concerns over server management. For anyone looking into Shopify it is truly a magnificent platform. I specifically love their open-ended theming system which allows for any style of template to be fitted into the e-commerce engine.

    My first gut reaction when I see someone called a “Rockstar” in the online marketing and web design industries is to move on to something of substance. I realize that most successful online marketers have egos the size of Mount Everest and prefer to associate with members of their own kind.  Not belonging to their club has been one of my weaknesses. In fact, my independence and not wanting to be part of a visible club has made me do odd things that make me cringe to this day, like the time at a conference where I begged someone I knew, kind of, to hang out with me because I…
  • Marine Mom – Care and Feeding Your Recruit

    16 Jan 2015 | 12:11 am
    Marine mom sleep is like having a newborn at home, where you wake every few hours to feed your child and cuddle. The other night at about 3am I distinctly heard my son call out, “Mom!” as if he was in his bedroom right down the hallway.  For the next 10 minutes I analyzed the tone of his voice.  Was it fear?  Was he ordering me to stop worrying about him?  Is he awake?  Did I dream it?  It felt good to hear his voice, regardless. I still haven’t slept an entire night since my Marine recruit left for 13 weeks of basic training.  Every night is the same, no matter what…

Okay, not really.  Stefan has prepared for this journey since he was in the third grade.  I was in denial until he was a senior in High School and then pretty much got used to the whole idea when he enlisted after he graduated. To prepare me he would bring home pamphlets in much the same way that some kids bring home stray kittens. “Mom,” he’d say in his low man-voice, “Read these.”…

    I was never a brave horse rider in my mind because for starters, once a fence went higher than 4 feet high, I lost my nerve to try and convince a horse to jump over it with me on its back. When I was a teenager I was given a gray gelding named Nelson.  When my mother purchased him, he couldn’t clear a rail set up on two flipped over buckets.  But, he tried and he was cute and I liked him.  I worked with Nelson and my horse riding teacher and got him up to 2 feet, maybe more.  I must have felt brave enough to show him in a jumping class because one day I did and that pretty much…

It’s become the non-negotiable, must-have tool for all; but when you dig a little deeper into what it can do for you, it starts to read like something out of a whodunit novel.

It’s about leveraging the relationship, building a deeper connection with your customer, and growing accounts.

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”.

    Creating an effective website can be a time consuming and laborious process, but when done right the results can lead to high traffic and excellent conversions. The site should be easy to read and navigate, the information contained should be well organized and accurate, and maybe most importantly a user should enjoy using the site. This is where user experience (UX) design enters the picture. Designing a site to “just work” the way a user “thinks it should” can seem like a feat of witchcraft, but effective UX design could be the piece of the puzzle that could make or break a…

  • Custom Events and Ajax Friendly Page-ready Checks

    Bruno Skvorc
    13 Jan 2015 | 12:00 pm
    Not so long ago, I built a Chrome extension that lets users export lists from Trello. You can see the short series on how that was done here. That extension had some room left for improvements, though. For example, checking whether the board has changed - something that’s less than simple to do considering all of Trello is ajaxy and the URL changes via undetectable pushstate. We also want it to support having multiple Trello tabs open, so just checking the URL wouldn’t do. It would also be good if we could somehow make sure slow page loads don’t affect the “page ready” state - in…
  • How To Build a Trello Chrome Extension – Exporting Lists

    Bruno Skvorc
    8 Jan 2015 | 12:00 pm
    In the previous part, we built the basics of our extension, implementing authentication through a custom Foundation-powered settings screen and using Trello’s JavaScript client library. In this part, we’ll finish our extension by adding the exporting logic and UI. Messaging When we authenticate with Trello on the settings screen, the Trello token is saved in local storage. However, the settings page is its own page and, effectively, its own environment - ergo, neither the extension’s background page nor the extension’s content scripts have access to it. This is where we need to use…
  • How To Build a Trello Chrome Extension – API Authentication

    Bruno Skvorc
    6 Jan 2015 | 12:00 pm
    At SitePoint, we use Trello extensively. Sure, it has its quirks and could use an improvement or two in various areas, but for the most part, it’s revolutionized the collaborative experience of not only staff, but also authors and their editors. I recently found myself needing to export card titles from a specific list for a non member. By default, Trello only supports full board exports to JSON and that’s something that crashes my tab on a board of over 100 members with hundreds of cards. There’s a small army of Trello extensions in the store, and yet curiously, none that export lists…
  • How to Accessibly Rotate Contents with jQuery

    Aurelio De Rosa
    16 Dec 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Together with the parallax scrolling effect, rotating content is another example of an effect that you often see implemented in websites. You can see it used to rotate news, tweets, Facebook posts, and so on. When built using jQuery, often developers create the widget employing the hide() and the show() methods (or the similar methods such as fadeIn()/fadeOut() and slideUp()/slideDown()). The problem with them is that, after performing the animation (if any), these methods change the value of the display property of the selected element(s) to none and back to the original value respectively.

The idea of controlling your own time and not answering to a manager or supervisor seems to charm a lot of people. Only those who have been in the freelancing business long enough have seen its dark side – cheapskate clients who give little value to your talent and work. Such was the case of Lauren Gray, who used to charge just around $300 for a web project but is now charging 10 times the amount of what she used to charge.

    Do you remember what the web looked like back in 1990? If you saw it today then you’d probably think it was designed by our great ancestors! But in reality, it was just two decades ago that websites relied on garish ads and clunky navigation to impress visitors. The truth is, the web has transformed from something we’d rather forget, to an incredible platform for designers to create, test and build innovative websites. With everything from web browsers, HTML, PHP, Javascript, and flash animation invented in such a short amount of time, we’ve really come far as designers.

Instead, they play games like Slotomania on their smartphones.  Slotomania is a social slots app because people can also socialize playing the game. Why Slotomania? For starters, this social slot app does not involve real money, so it is not going to make anybody rich, but then, it is not going to make anybody poor either. With Slotomania people can indulge in those tendencies without any guilt because all, they would be…

    A well-designed filter is a powerful tool users can take advantage of. It is actually an essential feature if your website has lots of content, distributed across different categories. For an e-commerce, it is a way to increase conversion rates by reducing the time needed by the user to find what he’s looking for. Building this kind of features is never easy: filters highly depend on the website content; besides a filter panel shouldn’t be distracting, the main focus should be the content/products.

    If you’re a website owner and you’ve never heard of a “robots.txt” file, you’re not alone.

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

    If you are launching a web application then the question to deliver it as a SaaS or On-Premise web application is obvious to come up. With many companies preferring pay-per-use or subscription models, it is impossible to ignore the SaaS delivery model. But there is more to it than just that.

    Abhijit Rawool

    How do you choose your UI elements? I am talking about the textboxes, radio buttons, checkboxes etc. that you use in your designs. I know many designers who look at the value that needs to be accepted by the UI field and choose the UI element accordingly. For example, if you want the users to enter their name, then you provide a textbox. If you want them to enter Yes or No, you would give them a checkbox. If you want them to select one of the 10 values, you will give them a dropdown list. Sometimes there is nothing wrong in choosing the UI elements in this fashion. But even after choosing the…

    Kelly Burgett
    19 Jan 2015 | 10:00 am
    Don’t close the blog! Don’t look away! This is not another Go Pro article about how amazing the little hand held gadget is. Santa was good to me this year (as he did not visit in China) and brought me a slick new toy in the Go Pro Hero4 Silver edition. I know right? Santa was really nice! So, as I pulled my new camera out and started taking pictures and videos of everything from washing dishes to the dog running up and down the stairs, I realized that I could take pictures and videos with the best of them, but I didn’t know what to do with it all after it was done. Time lapse? Yeah,…
  • Dry cleaning for the modern age

    Kelly Burgett
    12 Jan 2015 | 10:00 am
    Let’s face it: Laundry of any kind is just a pain. My husband and I have come to an agreement about doing laundry in this house: if you wear it, you clean it, mainly because I would rather cut both my arms off than wash clothes. It’s a hated house chore that will never go away. I thought I hated clothes washing here in the States, and then I moved to China. It’s worse, like ten times worse! It is a several day process instead of a several hour process, including a drying rack with wet clothes stretched across the entire apartment. So imagine my delight when I found something that will…
  • Star wars

    I remember the first time I saw the trilogy. I was in middle school and my best friend forced me to do a marathon screening. It was a long day full of a difficult story to follow (For me, don’t judge me. I just couldn’t get into it.), and the obvious discussion about robots. All the cool robots in those movies really got us talking, and dreaming, about what it would be like if we had all those gadgets to help us. So, when the latest Star Wars trailer came out, I was pleasantly surprised to see that they haven’t moved away from the original series’ usage of robots. What an awesome…
  • The best gifts for dog lovers

    Kelly Burgett
    29 Dec 2014 | 10:00 am
    I freely admit that I am one of those ‘weirdos’. I love my dog. I mean Disney hearts coming out of my eyes, let her sleep in the bed when she’s been told otherwise, buy her treats before I buy myself anything love. If you met her you would agree. This Rott/Hound mix is the cat’s pajamas (maybe using cats to describe a dog whose greatest joy in life is chasing cats is a bit much, but I stand by it). She’s 88 pounds of pure love and I can’t imagine my life with out her. Last Christmas, I wasn’t so lucky as to have her with me (it’s a long story), so it’s no surprise that my…

    My eyesight is bad. I mean B-A-D. I’m barely into my 30’s and driving at night is tough, plus reading any sign past about 15 yards and I’m done. It’s frustrating. I’ve gone through quite a bit of eyewear as well. Glasses are a nightmare (if I can have a vanity moment and just say that my face is not suitably shaped for glasses) and if it’s sunny outside, I then have to change to a different prescription of shaded glasses. Ugh, just too much to carry. Next, I had my rough and tumble bout with contacts. I sat in the doctor’s office for over an hour with tears streaming down my…
