    When it comes to email marketing, clickthrough rates matter.You send out emails because you want your subscribers to take action. Perhaps you want them to buy a product, or read an article on your blog, or respond to a survey.Whatever action you want your subscribers to take, you need them to click a link in your email before they take that action.In other words, you need them to click through your email. The more subscribers who click, the better your clickthrough rate.Unfortunately, clickthrough rates are typically very low. Most email subscribers don't take the action that's…

    Capturing a user’s contact details is high on the agenda of many web businesses these days, with email sign up forms being prominently displayed to visitors as soon as they land on their website. Sometimes these sign up forms require the user to enter their address in order to gain access to a tool or service, while others prompt visitors to join the newsletter to keep up to date with the company’s latest news, especially on “coming soon” pages where it’s important to pique the interest of early adopters. Today’s web design showcase features 20 sites that…

  • Go after feedback with a club

    16 Aug 2014 | 7:26 am
    Jack London, the author of The Call of the Wild, was talking about writing when he said “You can’t wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club.” The product design equivalent is: You can’t wait for feedback. You have to go after it with a club. If you’re waiting for feedback, you’re only going to get 5% of it…as only a tiny proportion of people reach out unsolicited. It’s the hard conversations you need to have…like with your friends who don’t want to tell you the truth, that you need to hear. Example: recently I was…
  • Customer research = secrets?

    12 Aug 2014 | 9:35 am
    An interesting article by Vinicius Vacanti, founder/CEO of Yipit: The Secrets Behind Many Successful Startups. In 2010 Yipit knew a secret about what was happening in the daily deals marketplace (that daily deals were exploding) and they were able to take advantage of it by creating a daily deals aggregator. What struck me about the post, however, was that the other “secrets” weren’t really secrets at all. They were simply observations about customer behavior that signaled what people were interested in. The observation that people like sharing photos was the turning point…

    Found this great quote by Steve Jobs: “Look at the design of a lot of consumer products — they’re really complicated surfaces. We tried to make something much more holistic and simple. When you first start off trying to solve a problem, the first solutions you come up with are very complex, and most people stop there. But if you keep going, and live with the problem and peel more layers of the onion off, you can often times arrive at some very elegant and simple solutions. Most people just don’t put in the time or energy to get there. We believe that customers are smart, and want…

    In order to align a company around delivering great experiences, Peter Merholz says, “there are (at least) six components that need to be aligned throughout the organization”: The Why and The How of Organizations that Deliver Great Experiences They are: value, vision, goals, incentives, processes and capabilities. My experience agrees with this…you need both vision at the top end and incentives at the bottom end to set the right goals and drive the right processes (and hire for the right capabilities).

  • Ways To Avoid Overwhelming Users: Lessons Learned From My High-School Teachers

    Jon Bernbach
    22 Aug 2014 | 6:56 am
    High school. I won’t lie: I did not have the highest grades in my graduating class. Some classes and lessons were so poorly designed and delivered that I would frequently become frustrated and fatigued and would ultimately shut down. The contents of the lessons would just wash over me. The experience wasn’t pleasant, and the results were obvious from my transcripts. But I did well in a few classes. The major difference was the teaching style. Currently, I am a user experience (UX) and user interface (UI) designer of mobile and web applications. In a way, like a teacher, I need to present…

    Many modern software development best practices draw on influences from the industrial era and concepts like specialization, where individuals with specialized skills worked in an assembly line to mass-produce physical products. These practices from the world of manufacturing have come to influence how things are done when designing and building software products as well. Lean thinking is one of the latest approaches software development companies have adopted to maximize value and reduce wasted effort and resources. It does so by breaking down an objective into a series of experiments. Each…

    Since first hearing of spaced repetition a few years back, I’ve used it for a wide range of things, from learning people’s names to memorizing poetry to increasing my retention of books. Today, I’ll share best practices that I’ve discovered from using spaced repetition to learn and master a programming language. Some great articles on this topic are already out there, including “Memorizing a Programming Language Using Spaced Repetition Software1” by Derek Sivers and “Janki Method2” by Jack Kinsella.

    When e-commerce search works, it’s fast, convenient and efficient. It’s no wonder that so many users prefer searching over clicking categories. Unfortunately, our recent large-scale usability study and top-50 benchmark of e-commerce search finds that search often doesn’t work very well. On-site search is a key component of almost any e-commerce website. That’s why we at Baymard Institute have invested months conducting a large-scale usability study, testing the e-commerce search experience of 19 major e-commerce websites with real-world end users. We’ve boiled our findings down to…

    “Why don’t we just use this plugin?” That’s a question I started hearing a lot in the heady days of the 2000s, when open-source CMSes were becoming really popular. We asked it optimistically, full of hope about the myriad solutions only a download away. As the years passed, we gained trustworthy libraries and powerful communities, but the graveyard of crufty code and abandoned services grew deep. Many solutions were easy to install, but difficult to debug. Some providers were eager to sell, but loath to support. Years later, we’re still asking that same question—only now we’re…

    We all want our websites to be fast. We optimize images, create CSS sprites, use CDNs, cache aggressively, and gzip and minimize static content. We use every trick in the book. But we can still do more. If we want faster outcomes, we have to think differently. What if, instead of leaving our users to stare at a spinning wheel, waiting for content to be delivered, we could predict where they wanted to go next? What if we could have that content ready for them before they even ask for it? We tend to see the web as a reactive model, where every action causes a reaction. Users click, then we take…

    When I first met Kevin Cornell in the early 2000s, he was employing his illustration talent mainly to draw caricatures of his fellow designers at a small Philadelphia design studio. Even in that rough, dashed-off state, his work floored me. It was as if Charles Addams and my favorite Mad Magazine illustrators from the 1960s had blended their DNA to spawn the perfect artist. Kevin would deny that label, but artist he is. For there is a vision in his mind, a way of seeing the world, that is unlike anyone else’s—and he has the gift to make you see it too, and to delight, inspire, and…

For years now, we’ve eagerly awaited Kevin’s illustrations each issue, opening his files with all the patience of a kid tearing into a new LEGO set.

  • Understanding Auto, Optical and Metrics Kerning in Adobe Illustrator

    Julie Felton
    22 Aug 2014 | 4:46 am
    What is Kerning?Kerning is the process of adjusting the space between pairs of letters to give them a more pleasing visual flow. Typically, kerning is used in large text such as headlines or titles though it can be used in body text. As font size increases, gaps between letters become more obvious. These gaps are especially noticeable around letters with an outward angle such as V, W and Y. Gaps also occur around letters than have a horizontal bar that creates an open space such as L and T.Types of KerningAdobe Illustrator offers three types of kerning: Auto, Optical and Metrics-Roman Only.

    Over the last few months, we’ve been working with a client on the design of a mobile analytics ‘web app.’ I’ll show more of it when we add it to our portfolio, but because lately one or two people have asked me about how we choose colour palettes, I thought I’d share how we came up with the colours for the Elemez app.Its developers brief to us was that their application was very different to their competitors and that the design should reflect that. In particular they wanted to stay away from typical app colour palettes epitomised by Bootstrap. At the start of…

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

You see, I agree with Sarah that Secret will take lives. Not directly, of course. But perhaps in the hands of a bullying teen picking on a severely depressed peer. And maybe that post — that secret, that was the last thing, the thing that made them…

The idea was super interesting to me (I love simple solutions), but I had no idea how feasible it would be. On June 3rd, his newly formed foundation The Ocean Cleanup claimed they’ve proven it is indeed feasible. They’re raising $2,000,000 to deploy a large-scale pilot in the next few years. And maybe it won’t work — but it sure feels like a no-brainer to donate some money and give them the chance to try.

It utilizes the ten “most persuasive” keywords in the English language; you, discover, easy, proven, save, money, guarantee, health, happiness, love, results. So when you combine these into a sentence it creates the “perfect advertisement”: “You can discover an easy and proven way to save money, and help guarantee your future health and happiness.

That’s a worthy aim, and despite the mostly negative online comments I’ve read it’s probably far too early to…

But you don't want all the elements to start at the same exact position. You can change the animation-delay so that they start at different times, but they will still all start at the same place. Fortunately, there is a way. The trick is to use negative animation-delay. That will begin an animation right away, but as if part of the animation has run already. For instance, here's three elements: <div class="thing…

From waking up and getting ready for work to falling asleep each night, the day is filled with these small repeating elements that create order and calm. Patterns in design do the very same thing: These repeating elements can bring order to a project and create a sense of calm (or chaos) to set a tone. That’s the true appeal of a pattern. It helps direct users through an aesthetic by following the pattern or series of objects and tells users how to interact with something. Designers can create patterns in a number of ways – with…

  • Design Dilemma: Working for Foreign Clients

    Speider Schneider
    14 Aug 2014 | 7:00 am
    When the internet allowed people to live and work remotely, it trumped FedEx’s overnight delivery with instant delivery. Skype and other messenger apps allowed us to speak with people all over the world and opened markets for clients anywhere. Still, the differences in national culture and language can be a problem for some people. What do non-American clients and creatives think of us? All they hear are complaints about non-payment, demands for free work and scope creep from here to the moon. They must think we’re a nation of cheats and scammers. Are clients in other nations different?

  • Responsive components using context queries

    Ed Merritt
    22 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    Media queries make a website respond to the viewport. But what if we could make site components respond to their container? I’ve been having a play with the idea of determining the context of a piece of content within a page rather than simply querying the media (device) itself. Media queries introduced us to a new level of customisation, a single component can take on different forms, depending on the device being used. There are restrictions to this though. Imagine a sidebar, say 1/3 the width of the page (about 300px wide on a screen of 1024px, but only about 200px at 768px). We…

    Digital transformation, digital teams, digital strategy. Digital has become a buzzword. But what does it mean? I write a lot about digital. Heck, I have even written a book called Digital Adaptation. But I am conscious that the term means different things to different people. That without a clear definition the word digital will become a meaningless buzzword. In fact, many are already claiming it is. There is some truth in this view. Yes, digital is a vague term. But it is a necessary shorthand to encompass some complex ideas. In this post, I hope to unpack the term and provide some clarity…

    Digital offers amazing opportunities. But, it also brings with it significant dangers. Just look at digital’s potential impact on the legal sector. I am amazed just how profound an impact the digital revolution has had on our world. It’s so easy to take it for granted, but not a single sector has escaped its reach. Headscape is doing a lot of work with the legal sector. Large law firms such as Dickstein Shapiro or Venable appear invulnerable. These are organisations working within a well established sector. A sector known for its conservatism. If anybody can escape the repecutions of…

    Foursquare is entering a new era. The long-time check-in service has undergone a radical redesign and reposition with its 8.0 release for iOS. No longer is Foursquare an app to check in at your favorite places and keep tabs on your friends – no, it’s now attempting to become the de facto recommendation engine for food and entertainment. The Verge has explained this repositioning quite clearly: The new app cuts through Foursquare’s massive corpus of data to answer one question: what if your food-finding app knew your favorite restaurants, but also your favorite foods?

    15 Aug 2014 | 12:08 am
    At the end of April the UK's Department for Business Innovation & Skills published the 2014 Information Security Breaches Survey, created in conjunction with PwC. The 2014 Information Security Breaches Survey technical report and executive summary compares the results of a survey with findings from 2013. There appears to be some bias in the results due to the primarily self-selection of the 1,125 respondents, and since "don't know" and "not applicable" answers were removed, many questions are assessed using only 300 or 400 responses. So for example, I cannot believe that "60% of small…

One of the simplest ways for improving the performance of a site is by serving page dependencies like JavaScript libraries and CSS frameworks via a public content delivery network (CDN).

As far as I can recall, there weren’t that many paid/premium themes back then.

    Capturing a user’s contact details is high on the agenda of many web businesses these days, with email sign up forms being prominently displayed to visitors as soon as they land on their website. Sometimes these sign up forms require the user to enter their address in order to gain access to a tool or service, while others prompt visitors to join the newsletter to keep up to date with the company’s latest news, especially on “coming soon” pages where it’s important to pique the interest of early adopters.

  • 50 Web Designs with Beautiful Creative Typography

    Chris Spooner
    11 Aug 2014 | 2:45 am
    Typography on the web comes in two formats; firstly there’s the classic image replacement technique which allows for beautiful typographic designs, but it lacks the technical wow factor. Then there’s true examples of web typography where designers wrangle with browsers to manipulate HTML rendered type in impressive ways, but while browsers and web technologies are continuously improving, this method often lacks in the visual flair that is achieved when designing typography in Photoshop and exporting it as an image. Both techniques result in equally inspiring web designs, so…

    Many developers who use Laravel are probably only barely scratching the surface of what the framework has to offer. While the documentation does cover the most common use cases and the obvious features, it doesn’t cover everything. Don’t get me wrong, the documentation is fine, it’s just that there’s so much you can do, it’s hard to document everything. Because of that, we're going to take a look at some of the hidden gems that lurk within Laravel. Cascading Views Available since: v4.0.0 Documented: No Views are able to cascade much the same as configuration files.

    22 Aug 2014 | 1:15 am
    It’s aggravating and demeaning when a business asks for free work. You feel belittled and often foster an urge to prove that you offer a professional service that has actual monetary worth. Unfortunately, there are designers who continue to do free work on the vague promise of “exposure,” “paying work later on,” and the client’s “rich friends” who will see your designs and “pay big fees” for your work. The truth is, when you do free work, you have set your value and that client and his/her rich friends will also ask for free design…

  • 3 post editing alternatives to perfect your WordPress workflow

    Ezequiel Bruni
    21 Aug 2014 | 1:15 am
    The most important parts of WordPress are the post and page editing screens. I mean, that’s where the magic happens, right? A lot of people do their writing there. It’s where the formatting happens. It’s where the content is produced, tweaked, edited, and occasionally screwed up beyond belief. For all that it’s the most important part of the admin interface, the post editing screen looks a lot like it did a long time ago, and works pretty much the same. This does not make me happy. Oh, I’m not going to dis the guys that made TinyMCE. It’s good at what it does, and it feels…

    Just three short weeks since The New Yorker unveiled its brand new, responsive site, there have already been a slew of updates. Whilst it’s not unusual for issues to come to light after a launch, the current online version of the classic American magazine has some fundamental problems that require more than a quick fix.

    20 Aug 2014 | 6:31 am
    Graphic design is a unique kind of art that we face throughout our lives. It surrounds us everywhere – on the street and at home, in books and magazines, on the stands and billboards. Best works of graphic designers are presented in form of logos on our T-shirts, on traffic signs, in advertisements, on the packaging of different products, and sometimes on our body in form of tattoos. Those pieces of art can evoke certain feelings. They help us to form an opinion about the surrounding world and to find our place in it. If design disappears from our lives, there won`t be even the Internet!

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.) Connecting with My Own Authentic Value Finding my own authentic…

    It has been a dream of mine to offer an on-going education and mentoring program, at an affordable price, and to use that to create an online virtual community (or tribe). This dream is now being realized with The New Media New Marketing Playground. And, because of the very special pricing that I am offering for the first ten people who sign up—and there are only a limited number of slots left—this program is clearly going to get off the ground in September (early sign-ups will get special free programs and early access during August, as well as special pricing). I don’t want…

    [A Quick Catch Up on Online Video's Reinvention of Advertising]As most of my readers know, I’ve been an “evangelist” for the digital video revolution, especially as it applies to the democratization of media, for many years. By now, the explosion and importance of online video via YouTube and other hosting platforms (from Wistia and Vimeo to Brightcove and Ooyala, among others) should be obvious to everyone. What is not so apparent to many people is the opportunity to use online video advertising as a highly-targeted attraction engine. The game changer over the past few…

    We are very pleased to have launched two new WordPress website designs in the last week or so. From an entry level WordPress website that is at the “getting started quickly on a lower budget than we thought we’d ever get from ComBridges” level like the one we just created for Luna Marendi, to a much more elaborate, corporate production like the one we just built in collaboration with the high profile leadership and culture coach, Christine Comaford, the ComBridges team is flowing with ease, and even if we do say so ourselves, we do WordPress right.

    Space is big. Really big. And until recently, space exploration was a domain that only involved world governments, as they are the ones that had the capabilities and resources to undertake such a task. Even then, only a select few can go launch to space, again, due to the time and money it takes to train them. Today, however, we are seeing several non-governmental agencies and companies that aim to bring space travel down to the civilian level, using the advantages that private industry has to offer, such as less bureaucracy and a profit motive.

That translates to a mind-boggling 33 billion links to web content, assuming each page has 10 entries. Let that sink in. If you’re a reader, that’s way more information than you can consume in a lifetime. If you’re an online content creator, that’s at least a million times larger than the competition you probably had in mind when you first turned to the Internet to make a living — granted, that figure includes every piece of content on every single niche…

    I received my domain registration renewal notice for Snappy Sentences the other day. And for the first time in seven years, I didn’t immediately pay it. I hesitated. I wasn’t sure. You see, Snappy Sentences has evolved. When I first registered the business name in August 2007, I was in the midst of that awful ‘transition’ phase of becoming a freelance copywriter. It’s a well-worn path where you still work for an employer (in this case the Queensland Government) while frantically building up a client base so you can take the leap to independence—essentially working two jobs.  My…

    Many developers who use Laravel are probably only barely scratching the surface of what the framework has to offer. While the documentation does cover the most common use cases and the obvious features, it doesn’t cover everything. Don’t get me wrong, the documentation is fine, it’s just that there’s so much you can do, it’s hard to document everything. Because of that, we're going to take a look at some of the hidden gems that lurk within Laravel.

    Advertise here with BSADeciding when to launch your first portfolio online can be a challenge. It’s tough to know exactly when your work quality is good enough to share with others.

I’d like to share a few ideas for creatives about building your first online portfolio.

  • How to decline requests for free work with style

    Speider Schneider
    22 Aug 2014 | 1:15 am
    It’s aggravating and demeaning when a business asks for free work. You feel belittled and often foster an urge to prove that you offer a professional service that has actual monetary worth. Unfortunately, there are designers who continue to do free work on the vague promise of “exposure,” “paying work later on,” and the client’s “rich friends” who will see your designs and “pay big fees” for your work. The truth is, when you do free work, you have set your value and that client and his/her rich friends will also ask for free design…

  • 3 post editing alternatives to perfect your WordPress workflow

    Ezequiel Bruni
    21 Aug 2014 | 1:15 am
    The most important parts of WordPress are the post and page editing screens. I mean, that’s where the magic happens, right? A lot of people do their writing there. It’s where the formatting happens. It’s where the content is produced, tweaked, edited, and occasionally screwed up beyond belief. For all that it’s the most important part of the admin interface, the post editing screen looks a lot like it did a long time ago, and works pretty much the same. This does not make me happy. Oh, I’m not going to dis the guys that made TinyMCE. It’s good at what it does, and it feels…

    Just three short weeks since The New Yorker unveiled its brand new, responsive site, there have already been a slew of updates. Whilst it’s not unusual for issues to come to light after a launch, the current online version of the classic American magazine has some fundamental problems that require more than a quick fix. It’s hard to envisage a magazine with a grander tradition than that of The New Yorker, the aspirational magazine is for many, synonymous with life in the Big Apple. Despite content heavily focussed on the greater New York area, its appeal is global and it can be…

    Recently, Google removed, without any warning, the video snippets in the search results for a large group of sites. This followed pretty quickly on Google’s removal of author highlight pictures from the search results. First discussed by Seer on July 16th and slowly becoming more and more visible, we’ve been testing and trying to figure out what worked and what didn’t. Of course this heavily impacts the benefits of our Video SEO plugin so we wanted to make sure we knew what was happening before making any rash decisions. It’s now pretty clear what Google has…

A homepage is the entrance to your website – a portal to the rest of your site with the goal of exploring it. It’s usually visited by those who have a direct link to your website. Most of the time the visitors already know you or have done business with you. Your homepage has navigation to other parts of your site such as blogs, products, services, resources, etc.

  • Typography Guidelines for Creating Balanced Website Layouts

    Jake Rocheleau
    20 Aug 2014 | 3:12 am
    Whether you design on paper, in graphics software, or in a web browser, typography is something that you’ll have to consider. No website or poster would be complete without some bits of text on the page. But text alone is not good enough – the symmetrical design and structure of text on a page is what gives readers their initial opinions. And boy those opinions can get real judgemental. This post delves into the topic of composition related to typography, specifically for websites and web design. I want to share a few points related to balancing your website text in an elegant…

    Let’s face it – any skillset worth acquiring takes time and lots of practice. The most fitting yet ironic way to improve is by screwing up and learning from your mistakes. While this process may not benefit the aspiring counterfeiter, mistakes are often the quickest and most resilient teaching methods. Web development is perhaps one of the best skills to learn through mistakes and repetition. I’d like to share a few tips that you can follow for improving your own frontend dev skills. You might start with a focus on the primary languages of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript,…

  • JavaScript Animations in AngularJS Applications

    Ravi Kiran
    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

    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…
  • An Introduction to jQuery Scroll-based Animations

    The web changes every day. New technologies and techniques emerge and others disappear. For this reason, web designers and front-end developers have to be familiar with many of the latest web design trends. Parallax scrolling, fixed headers, flat design, one-page websites, and animations are some of the hottest current web trends. In this tutorial, we’ll take a look at scroll-based animations and effects using CSS and jQuery. The four effects that we’ll be creating can be viewed in this demo. But before we get to the effects, let’s have a brief intro. Note: The code used in this…
  • HTML5 Web Audio API Tutorial: Building a Virtual Synth Pad

    Armando Roggio

    The World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Audio working draft is a high-level API that allows developers to process, synthesize, and analyze audio signals in web applications like HTML5 games or virtual musical instruments. Web Audio uses an AudioContext interface to represent AudioNodes. Within the AudioContext an audio file, as an example, is connected to a processing node, which in turn, is connected to a destination like the speakers on your laptop. Each node in the AudioContext is modular so that a web developer can plug (or unplug) nodes like a toddler snapping Lego blocks in place to build…

    I’ve always been a fan of blogging and social media, however I’ve lately found myself drawn in by the growth of WordPress podcast sites. I’ll admit that I was a bit anti-podcasting at first. I wasn’t sure it would stick and I really didn’t see the value of it. And then something changed. I was invited to be a guest on a number of WordPress podcast shows and I realized this new type of marketing had something to offer. Podcasting can have a reach that is unique and unlike that of blogging, social media, or email. It connects with a different type of audience and it allows you to…

    English is a difficult language. So many rules. So many exceptions to the rules, but anyone can easily learn it.  The problem is, English as a language should be learned through immersion. But, generally, it is often taught academically. It is really hard to communicate with freelance clients who speak English poorly. Issues also arise with native English speakers who particularly have a heavy regional accent that is too difficult to comprehend.

    Bosses  can be pretty infuriating at times. But do you know what can really ruin your day? A bad boss. In your web design career, you surely have experienced being administered by the boss. You take orders and requests, do and finish them and earn money at paydays. If this is not the case, you might be the boss. You are the one who sends payments, administers people, and sanctions them if they do something wrong. This can be very difficult at times, especially when you think of the times when you were still at the bottom of the chain. Everyone saw you as a friend more than a foe back then.

Instead of doing this with Photoshop, the good news is, it is now possible to create textured text using CSS3. Webkit now supports the background-clip CSS3 property that does exactly what Photoshop does. Aside from that, you can also use the mask-image CSS property to do almost the same effect; however, this property clips the visible portion of an element according to the transparency of the mask images. In today’s tutorial, you will…

  • Making SVGs Responsive with CSS

    Sara Soueidan
    19 Aug 2014 | 5:08 am
    An SVG can be embedded on a web page in many ways; one of which is embedding it inline in an HTML5 page using the <svg> tag. The other commonly used techniques include embedding it as an image using the <img> tag, embedding it using the <object> tag, using an iframe, and as a CSS background image. Conceptually, making an SVG scale as its container scales should be as simple as removing any fixed height and/or width, and specifying a viewBox attribute value. However, due to different browser implementations and inconsistencies, the web isn’t all ponies and rainbows, and…

  • Making SVGs Responsive with CSS

    Sara Soueidan
    19 Aug 2014 | 5:08 am
    An SVG can be embedded on a web page in many ways; one of which is embedding it inline in an HTML5 page using the <svg> tag. The other commonly used techniques include embedding it as an image using the <img> tag, embedding it using the <object> tag, using an iframe, and as a CSS background image. Conceptually, making an SVG scale as its container scales should be as simple as removing any fixed height and/or width, and specifying a viewBox attribute value. However, due to different browser implementations and inconsistencies, the web isn’t all ponies and rainbows, and…

    It’s aggravating and demeaning when a business asks for free work. You feel belittled and often foster an urge to prove that you offer a professional service that has actual monetary worth. Unfortunately, there are designers who continue to do free work on the vague promise of “exposure,” “paying work later on,” and the client’s “rich friends” who will see your designs and “pay big fees” for your work. The truth is, when you do free work, you have set your value and that client and his/her rich friends will also ask for free design…

    The most important parts of WordPress are the post and page editing screens. I mean, that’s where the magic happens, right? A lot of people do their writing there. It’s where the formatting happens. It’s where the content is produced, tweaked, edited, and occasionally screwed up beyond belief. For all that it’s the most important part of the admin interface, the post editing screen looks a lot like it did a long time ago, and works pretty much the same. This does not make me happy.

  • 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.

    This is a guest post by team member & SEO Specialist, Shane Smith, of Inbound Visions. It is crucial to understand that going after the most common keywords of your industry might not always be the best strategy for your search engine optimization campaign.  Targeting “long tail” keywords often will bring a lot of traffic. For example, if you were targeting the keyword “horse trainer”, of course there would be a lot of competition and it would be more difficult to rank for that short phrase. However, more and more users on Google are searching with longer phrases to find what…

  • My Design Ethos – The 8 Principles I Create By

    Stephen Gates

    A few years ago I started to write my “design ethos” which I wanted to be a set of 8 principles that really defined that I believed and set the standard I wanted my group and myself to always aspire to. They are simple statements but here again the simplicity is deceiving as each purposely challenging and aspirational. Over time I’ve also found it to be important because if you ever want to do anything new or innovative you are going to have to bring those ideas to life against a lot of opposition. It wasn’t until I started working with Apple that I really embraced that…

    It is no secret that digital channels continue to become an ever-increasing part of everyday life and as a result brands are trying to figure out how to become more digitally savvy so they can play a larger role in people’s lives. Many of those companies have been looking to Facebook as the poster child they want to emulate and so I’ve seen their marketing started to be filled with phrases like ‘agile’, start-up’ and references to the posters that adorn every Facebook office like ‘Move fast and break things’, ‘Done is better than…

    The concept of brands already existed, albeit in a crude form, in the minds of consumers even before marketers comprehended its power.

  • HTTPS – a new way to rank?

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

It then gives the website a score from 0-100 based on how well the site is optimized for search.

    Many small business owners feel overwhelmed by SEO. It’s such a huge and daunting subject that business owners think they don’t have time to learn enough to effectively impact their search performance. However, most small businesses only need to focus on a smaller subset of the search industry – Local SEO. Although complicated in its own ways, the learning curve for Local SEO is much shorter and it can still have a big impact on search performance for small businesses.

    July 1 is historically a great day for Canadians. This year, I was actually in Canada for Canada Day and got to celebrate the 147th birthday of the greatest nation on Earth with my fellow Canucks. Traditionally this great day is reserved for celebrating Canadian style – in Alberta at least – with a pancake breakfast, some Old Style Pilsner, a BBQ, and fireworks when it gets dark-ish. However, this year was different for many business owners and managers, especially those who conduct email marketing in Canada. As you likely know, July 1, 2014 was the date Canada enacted its new…

    Anybody who has worked with user content on a website will know the problem you get when a user writes the content in Word and copy and pastes this content into a textarea so that you can store it in the database. The problem that you have is that when you want to display this content on the front-end you will get a lot of strange black question marks.

In a recent project I was testing some code that used AJAX to run an action in a WordPress plugin. The problem I was having was that this action wasn't being called when it should of been, because this was using AJAX I needed a way of finding out if the code that…

    Recording, uploading and transcoding video straight from the browser Video on the web continues to grow by leaps and bounds. If you want a cheap-but-good analogy, it’s about a tween: it already knows a lot, but still has substantial growth ahead. It’s becoming too cool for plugins like Flash and Silverlight, but a lot of the shiny and exciting APIs on the edge of the spec still need to mature a little. Last year at WebExpo I gave a talk about the future of video on the web, as well as a brief foray into new and exciting features that were on the way. Some of the things I talked…
  • Bulletproof Live Streaming

    9 Jun 2014 | 4:29 pm
    From a reliability perspective, one of the great things about VOD transcoding is the ability to simply try again. If anything goes wrong during the transcoding process, we can simply re-run the process from the beginning. The worst effect of a hiccup is a job takes a little longer, which is unfortunate, but the end result is a transcoded file is delivered to the customer and all is well. During a live event, however, we don’t have the luxury of simply trying again. Since these events are transcoded in real time, we only have one chance to deliver a perfect transcode to end-users; a blip…

Boomerang This was once a joke that you forgot, but now in line with its name it is coming back to you.

     These days being a developer isn’t an easy task. Among all the tasks and challenges you already have to deal with, you need to deal with bugs.

We see 3 key problems with this:1: Most Users Are Not Tech SavvyIt’s true and whilst we not say it to them directly, we know it. The user knows something’s wrong, because the website is not working for them, but they don’t know why, how to fix it or how to report it.Try asking your Grandmother what JavaScript is for example.

    Like a true beer-lover I keep an eye on what is going on with beer startups around me. In Europe. The first stop for a research like that should be my friends, but unfortunately I decided to start by visiting “Craft Beer” category on Angel.co – It was a disaster. 3 out of 5 statups were with non-existing websites, one of them was hosted at Wix and only one was actually able to give me the information I needed.Actually I heard about it on producthunt.co just a few minutes before browsing angel.co. So here is my list and my comments. Feel free to add comments or to add more startups.

    A well-optimized search campaign is only half of the puzzle. The other half is the landing page we are driving our visitors to. That’s where the conversion takes place and revenue is created.  That is why it’s very important that in every Google Adwords campaign, aside from having great adverts, it’s also very important to come up with great landing pages.  For example, if you have a good PPC account and it’s not converting, most likely the reason is that the landing page has the problem.

The results make for some stunning UX with smooth transitions and layered parallax effects – just look at Facebook’s Paper app as an example. This kind high-performance app is something you can only dream of creating with web technologies and a humble browser. However, such a dream is edging closer to reality and…

  • Hamburger Hate & The Problem With Mobile Navigation

    Aaron Gary Brooks

The debate is whether the icon is recognised widely enough for it to be used as a navigation button for mobile apps and occasionally websites (see below). The quick answer is no, it isn’t – at least not yet anyway. But the more hamburger articles I see, the more I think we’re missing the wider issue with mobile UX and navigation.

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