    In client work, it’s our responsibility to ensure that our work lives beyond ourselves. Sometimes that means making sure the CMS can handle clients’ ever-changing business needs, or making sure it continually teaches its users. For clients with an internal development team that will be taking over after you, it means making sure the design system you create is flexible enough to handle changes, yet rigid enough to maintain consistency. Making your work live beyond you starts by changing your approach to design and development. Rather than defining and building a certain set of pages,…

    Emotional design is a very powerful tool used for creating excellent user experience for the visitors on a website. For the past few years, designers have mostly focused on the valid factors that are included in the design. These include; meeting the standards of web, providing easy navigation for users, choosing the best layouts and fonts. However, now designers are able to provide much more than only meeting the needs of the customers. They are now presenting visitors with beautiful emotions that have the ability to touch the heart and soul of visitors. Businesses that are running on the…

  • How To Run A Content-Planning Workshop

    James Deer
    24 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    Back when my agency started taking content seriously, we invested a lot time in developing a process to produce content. The biggest challenge was always figuring out how to get clients onboard with this new process. Most of our clients were totally happy riffing on how to meet the business objectives of a project or how to approach the visual design, but they always struggled to get to grips with our process for producing content. We found that the most effective way to get their buy-in was to run a content-planning workshop. Workshops work really well to get everyone onboard with how to…
  • Reducing Abandoned Shopping Carts In E-Commerce

    Keir Whitaker
    23 Oct 2014 | 5:43 am
    In March 2014, the Baymard Institute, a web research company based in the UK, reported that 67.91%1 of online shopping carts are abandoned. An abandonment means that a customer has visited a website, browsed around, added one or more products to their cart and then left without completing their purchase. A month later in April 2014, Econsultancy stated2 that global retailers are losing $3 trillion (USD) in sales every year from abandoned carts. Clearly, reducing the number of abandoned carts would lead to higher store revenue — the goal of every online retailer. The question then…

    22 Oct 2014 | 6:07 am
    When you browse your favorite website or check the latest version of your product on your device of choice, take a moment to look at it differently. Step back from the screen. Close your eyes slightly so that your vision is a bit clouded by your eyelashes. Can you still see and use the website? Are you able to read the labels, fields, buttons, navigation and small footer text? Can you imagine how someone who sees differently would read and use it? In this article, I’ll share one aspect of design accessibility: making sure that the look and feel (the visual design of the content) are…

    According to a recent report1, HTML is the most widely used language for mobile app developers. The main reasons among developers for selecting web technologies2 are cross-platform portability of code and the low cost of development. We’ve also heard that hybrid apps tend to be sluggish and poorly designed. Let’s prove whether it’s possible to deliver the native look and feel that we’re used to. This article provides many hints, code snippets and lessons learned on how to build great hybrid mobile apps. I’ll briefly introduce hybrid mobile app development, including its benefits and…

    23 Oct 2014 | 4:08 am
    Every time I start a new job I take my dad to see my office. He loves seeing where I work, and I love showing him. It’s a thing. As much as I enjoy this unspoken ritual of ours, there’s always a predictable response from my dad that serves as a clear indicator of our large generation gap. At some point he’ll ask a question along the lines of, “So… no one has an office? You just sit out here in the open?” I’ve tried many times to explain the idea of colocation and collaborative work, but I don’t think it’s something that will ever compute for him. This isn’t a criticism on…

    At CSS Day last June I introduced, with some trepidation, a peculiar three-character CSS selector. Called the “lobotomized owl selector” for its resemblance to an owl’s vacant stare, it proved to be the most popular section of my talk. I couldn’t tell you whether the attendees were applauding the thinking behind the invention or were, instead, nervously laughing at my audacity for including such an odd and seemingly useless construct. Perhaps I was unwittingly speaking to a room full of paid-up owl sanctuary supporters. I don’t know. The lobotomized owl selector looks like this:…

    What You'll Be CreatingAs a comic artist, one of the comments I get the most is: "I don't know how you're able to draw the same character over and over again so that they're recognizable!"

    When you watch an animated Pixar movie, the 3D graphics are extremely detailed and realistic because they’re “pre-rendered”. Each frame may have taken many hours or days for the computer to render and then later you watch those rendered frames in a finished sequence. “Real-time” imagery typically renders frames at around 60 times per second (or 60fps) and it’s used in interactive environments like games and the web, because you cannot predict what the user will do next. My first experience with real-time 3D computer graphics was 20 years ago in the days…

    In the 21st century, ideas are valuable. That's because we live in an information economy.A century ago, value was created through manufacturing. You took raw materials and used them to create a product. You then sold the product for more than you paid for the raw materials. By turning raw materials into a product, you created value and thus you made money.In the information economy, value isn't created by shaping raw materials into products. It's created through ideas.

I like the original trilogy fine, but I just find my generation’s preoccupation with it to be a little absurd, especially when articulated as elaborate homages on the Internet.

    Our friends at Code Enigma relaunched their website at DrupalCon in Amsterdam. The launch included the branding we designed for them.Code Enigma are well-known in the Drupal community and we felt that changes to their brand needed to be incremental and not a complete departure from their previous, familiar branding.

While we worked on the logo redesign, we focussed on three areas: Evolving the motif Making better use of colour Choosing a new typeface Evolving the motif No one at Code Enigma could tell…

    I still remember the very first time I held an Ikea catalog in my hands and flipped through its pages. It was 1999 and the cover was a well-lit living room with a mother and son lying comfortably on a beige couch. I browsed and found myself amazed by the room layouts and colors. I didn’t know then that the magazine was teaching me a few design basics that I eventually learned more thoroughly about. Here’s a few things you can pick up from that Ikea catalog you keep ignoring on the center table. 1) Working with colors Over the years, Ikea has evolved from the basic colors of the…

    The internet was set abuzz by Norway’s kroner redesign that were literally works of art which got us thinking: Why don’t we have those with the Dollar? The US Dollar is in dire need of a redesign, not only for rebranding but also for the possible restoration and strengthening of confidence on the US economy. Or, because designing currency is just plain fun. The aesthetics of American banknotes stems way back from when currency was first issued during the American Civil war.

Every organization (and individual inside) experiences growth differently, which makes for some great stories. This is one of mine. The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste. They have absolutely no taste. And I don’t mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way, in the sense that they don’t think of original ideas, and they don’t bring much culture into their products. — Steve…

I was the one who put in the time. I spent the hours in a dark room with all the stuff that could be until I had the stuff that should be. I was the one who designed five wrong iterations until I got the right one. And it was good. People loved it. And these — these barbarians just stole it. Every last bit. I was real angry.

    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.

One test we often do is to say, ‘Who do you think has a good logo?’ And inevitably people say Apple and Nike and ones they think highly of. No one will ever say Enron.

    While animating SVG with CSS is easy and comfortable, CSS can't animate all the SVG properties that are possible to animate. For instance, all the properties that define the actual shape of the elements aren't possible to change or animate in CSS. You can animate them through SMIL though. Sara Soueidan covers this in her guide to SMIL here on CSS-Tricks, but I thought I would shine a light on this particular ability. Most important fact: the shapes need to have the same number of points Otherwise, the animation will just fail. The shape won't disappear or anything, but it won't animate. It's…

Essentially you just tell it what content type it is (e.g. image/png), semicolon, then the data of that file. Like: <img src='data: ... '> or: .bg { background: url('data: ... '); } For a raster image like a PNG, the data of that image needs to be in base64 format.

    There’s no bigger hot button in the design industry than crowdsourcing. Sites like fiverr, eLance, 99designs, DesignContest, and oDesk promise digital client relationships while protecting the rights and payments of the “winners.” And therein lay the problem—these sites have winners and losers—mostly losers. But, what if you are a winner? A designer wrote and asked if he should stay away from these sites or give them a try. He had won $1,000 in a smaller design contest for some music label and was riding high on the thought he could continue winning—and earning money.

    Paul Boag
    22 Oct 2014 | 9:53 am
    I am fed up with hearing web designers moan about their clients. The problem is nobody has taught us how best to work with clients. We just make it up as we go along. It is demoralising when you have spent days working on a design only to have it rejected by the client. You put so much effort into your work and then the client seems to reject it for no good reason. But, this kind of rejection isn’t because the client is stupid. It’s because you are approaching the design process in the wrong way. Nobody teaches us how to work with clients. We just make things up as we go along.

    When we become too close to something we can miss the obvious. Web design is no exception. That is why your website may well need a second opinion. It never hurts to get an outside perspective, especially when it comes to your website. You may have the best team working on your site. But, no team is going to spot everything. Even if they do, a fresh pair of eyes will bring a new perspective and new thinking. I spend a lot of my time doing exactly that.

    When most of us think about design we focus on aesthetics. But as any designer will tell you, aesthetics shouldn’t be your primary concern. I have stayed in a lot of hotels recently. Most of those hotels are apart of a chain. Each chain positions itself carefully and uses design to create the right image. From the budget colour scheme of Premier Inns to the modern luxury of W hotels. They consider everything to ensure it communicates the right image. To portray the right brand identity. There is no doubt that aesthetics influence how we feel about something like a hotel room. But, it is the…

This requires an eye for good composition which can be developed through practice(no balancing pole required). In this post I’d like to cover a few techniques for balancing a website’s composition.

That idea has, over the years, been reconsidered to the point where minimal seems to be the trendy way to go now. Designing in the minimal style is not easy – just like creating minimalism in interior design, you have to look at everything you want in the room/on your home page, then de-clutter – then de-clutter again, and…

Because of the simple visual appeal, the person connects with that item on an emotional level and creates a bond with it. The opposite is also true where a person can create a connection of strong dislike if an item is unaesthetic. It’s a concept explained by Don Norman in his book Emotional Design.

Smart watches are likely to stay around for a long time, so I think it’s high time to talk about the actual customer experience and usability that these devices have to offer. A wristwatch is first of all a fashion accessory, so it is somewhat difficult to evaluate its usability, but not when it claims…

  • Unlocking the Secret of Simplicity in WordPress Themes Everything I've learned in 7 years

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

    This post is a response to Chris Lema’s post titled, “Four mistakes WordPress theme vendors make.” Chris makes some fantastic points about theme companies that I must reiterate here and also expound upon. As a leader of a company that sells themes, calculating the potential profitability of a single WordPress theme is absolutely critical to building a business around them. There are other factors, such as determining the size of a potential market for niche themes and understanding the needs of the consumer, but for now, I’d like to break down the expenses and…

Using Xamarin.Forms, you are able to use the same terminology for controls across multiple platforms.While this concept can be very powerful, as a designer or a developer, it can be somewhat limiting. It may seem like we're forced to use the native user interface controls that come with each of the platforms without the ability to add customization. This is not the case.In order to get into the process of customizing the user interface for specific…

    A brand is arguably a company’s most valuable asset, but it’s the brand logo in particular that really speaks volumes about the company. Every aspect of the design conveys a certain message to consumers — whether it’s the personality of the brand, the company’s values, or the target audience. It’s a hugely important part of a company’s branding strategy, and an enormous amount of time and money is invested into creating the perfect logo.

    I mentioned the “Swiss School” and “the grid” layout in another article and while most comments were positive about the article, there were a number of people who asked if the grid was even still alive. I assure you the grid layout is alive, well, and used all the time. Those who never learned it just don’t realize the rules of the grid and how one can use or even bend, or break those rules for success in designing incredible layouts. Firstly, using a grid layout isn’t something assigned to print or digital exclusively. Layout is layout and design is a method to convey a message…

I was only given an hour, so I made sure every decision I made aligned with the brief, even for elements they hadn’t even thought about. As you can imagine, the design didn’t look too good as I only had an hour. It ended up looking more like a rough concept, but because I was able to explain every part of my work, I gained trust with the interviewers and landed the…

    15 Oct 2014 | 11:22 am
    Writing is one of the most overlooked skills by designers. I can understand why as it isn’t immediately obvious how much it can help, so my job in this week’s article is to show you how it can assist you in your design work. Designing Inspect Element Elements of the new Inspect Element homepage were basically designed in my head while walking down the street. That sounds strange but I wrote everything down in as much detail as possible on the spot as soon as the ideas entered my head (I capture everything in Evernote. It’s my second brain!). This process made it so much…
  • Experiment, Experiment, Experiment

    Tom Kenny
    9 Oct 2014 | 3:39 am
    Sometimes design ideas come easy, usually accompanied by the feeling of being on top of the world but this isn’t always the case. Far from it. If you can form great design ideas quickly and easily every single time, I would love to know your secret! What happens when we don’t knock it out of the park on our first attempt? It can often be hard and frustrating. When it happens to me, I sometimes even question myself as a designer, although that’s the extreme case. What I normally do to get out of this hole, is experiment. I basically try a number of different things to see what works. It…
  • The Benefits of Being Able to Explain Every Design Decision You Make

    Tom Kenny
    2 Oct 2014 | 6:59 am
    Early on in my design career as a junior web designer, I had an interview for one of the largest travel companies in the world. As part of the interview process, I had to redesign the homepage of one of their many travel sites. I was only given an hour, so I made sure every decision I made aligned with the brief, even for elements they hadn’t even thought about. As you can imagine, the design didn’t look too good as I only had an hour. It ended up looking more like a rough concept, but because I was able to explain every part of my work, I gained trust with the interviewers and landed the…
  • The Overnight Design Test

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

  • Thailand Police: The 5 Stunning Truth About Thai Police and How To Manage Yourself as a Foreigner

    David
    20 Oct 2014 | 5:31 am
    I’ve had numerous run-ins with the police in Thailand, and police in other South East Asia countries during my time living in this part of the world. I’ve been taken advantage of a few times in retrospect when I first arrived in Thailand due to my American relationship with the police (that is, you trust the police as a whole in America and do not stand up to an officer – you need to with Thai Police…unless you’re doing something stupid). Disclaimer: Look, if you’re doing something wrong in a foreign country, if you’re driving a bike without a helmet,…
  • How To Fix a Relationship: Sometimes It’s Better to Be With Someone You Like, Not Love

    David
    11 Oct 2014 | 3:21 am
    I once heard a wise man say, “At the end of their life, no ever says, ‘I wish I had spent more time at the office!’ “Another one said that “Men and women can have it all – just not at the same time.” Life is precious. It is often tough.It is sometimes very sad. It has its moments of triumph and its moments of tragedy. I’ve been doing some thinking about my current relationship, how many times she would have been “justified” in leaving me. How many times I would have been “justified” in leaving her. But just as love is a choice, not a puddle that you fall into, we…
  • Loneliness is Simply Resistance to Other People

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

    Naysayers are abound and they have stories. Stories of failure. Like the one of that guy who did that thing and is now living in a van down by the river because he failed. Sad. Or that girl who risked it all and moved to a foreign city to take a job that did not materialize. She can now be found working retail, stocking shelves late at night. Be scared… No, you must ignore these people in your life. It is not that they want to discourage you (OK they sort of do), but rather they care about you and do not want to see you do anything risky… Really, they worry for two reasons. The first is…
  • How To Fix The Lost Feeling, That Lack of Interest and Excitement

    David
    26 Sep 2014 | 5:35 am
    Your thoughts help shape your reality. Understanding that is the first step towards fixing an uninspired life filled with a lack of interest. Often when  unhappiness sets in, we feel a void in our life. Something is missing and we’re not sure what. Instead of staring into that void directly to see what is actually missing. We go looking for a quick fixes. In a pointless attempt to fill that void in our lives, we amplify one other area of our life to make up for the lack. Financial: If only I was rich, then I could be happy. Career: If only I worked for  >insert brand name< company,…

    Google has introduced a new email app, from the same team that builds Gmail, but intended as something completely different from Gmail. Inbox is an app that built on everything they learned from Gmail, Inbox is a fresh start that goes beyond email to help you get back to what matters. Inbox automatically categorizes your incoming messages into “Bundles,” which are broken out into things like Travel, Purchases, and Social. You can also create your own Bundles from tags, or by grouping messages into Bundles. The app’s still in the invite stage, and Google says the first round of…
  • Dropcap.js Makes Beautiful Drop Caps Easy for the Web

    Ray Cheung
    23 Oct 2014 | 12:15 am
    Decorative initials, also known as drop capitals or “drop caps”, should be positioned on a baseline of the adjoining text; they should also be tall enough to reach the cap height of the first line of text. Though drop caps are very common in magazines and books, they remain rare on the web. We believe this is because doing it right simply and reliably is too difficult. A simple CSS float:left on a ::first-letter pseudo-element is not enough. Dropcap.js makes beautiful drop caps easy for the web. We tested dropcap.js on Windows (IE10+, Firefox, Chrome) and OSX (Firefox, Chrome, Safari).

  • L20n – Localization Framework Developed by Mozilla

    Ray Cheung
    21 Oct 2014 | 12:03 am
    L20n is a localization framework developed by Mozilla for the Web. It allows localizers to put small bits of logic into localization resources to codify the grammar of the language. L20n’s framework removes the need for developers to thoroughly understand the specifics of a natural language and provides an opportunity for localizers to create better translations. L20n reinvents software localization. Users should be able to benefit from the entire expressive power of a natural language. L20n keeps simple things simple, and at the same time makes complex things possible. You can take…

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

    Jake Rocheleau
    20 Oct 2014 | 3:27 am
    Advertise here with BSAAmong many powerful tools in Photoshop is the king of kings: the pen tool. This tool is shrouded by personal anecdotes of confusion and frustration. Although creating paths with the pen tool is difficult at first, the process becomes easier with practice and is well worth the effort. Every path is vector-based which means you can scale it larger or smaller without any quality loss. But paths can be very frustrating if you don’t know how to use them. I’d like to cover the process of converting a path into a shape layer. In case you didn’t already know,…

Symbols become recognizable logos for companies. And symbols let us know when we’ve meandered our way into the wrong bathroom. Well, symbols and the lamenting screams of horrified women(or men?). Keep in mind that a website using too many icons will get confusing real fast. You generally need some context to help readers understand what they’re looking at.

    A brand is arguably a company’s most valuable asset, but it’s the brand logo in particular that really speaks volumes about the company. Every aspect of the design conveys a certain message to consumers — whether it’s the personality of the brand, the company’s values, or the target audience. It’s a hugely important part of a company’s branding strategy, and an enormous amount of time and money is invested into creating the perfect logo. We are exposed to hundreds (if not thousands) of different brand logos every single day, but there are actually a number of subtle design…

I assure you the grid layout is alive, well, and used all the time. Those who never learned it just don’t realize the rules of the grid and how one can use or even bend, or break those rules for success in designing incredible layouts. Firstly, using a grid layout isn’t something assigned to print or digital exclusively. Layout is layout and design is a method to convey a message…

  • Tips for Planning a Lean Versatile User Experience

    Jake Rocheleau
    24 Oct 2014 | 2:18 am
    A typical user experience design focuses on many factors that you might not initially consider. Interacting with a website or mobile app is a two-fold process – the user performs some action like a click or swipe, and the interface responds accordingly. This is the general nature of user experience design. The question is how to follow UX design principles to craft simple and usable interactions? In this post I hope to outline a number of tips to help build lean usable interfaces. Starting from a user experience perspective allows better ideas to come out of the creative process. This…

But unfortunately not every college website has been designed with elegance or grace. I’ve organized 30 gorgeous website layouts created for colleges and universities located all over America.

  • Simple Ideas to Improve Web Design Mockups

    Jake Rocheleau
    17 Oct 2014 | 2:15 am
    The process of designing a full website layout comes in many stages. First is sometimes procrastination followed by sketching or writing down ideas. Then after getting frustrated and trashing all those ideas the process will repeat until a usable concept is born. At this point most designers will move on to actually designing a full webpage mockup. It’s possible to create mockups using any graphic editor like GIMP or Sketch 3 but most designers will stick to Photoshop. PSDs are the most popular choice because they can work within various Adobe products and offer a very quick exporting…

  • A Content-switching Component Built 3 Ways: jQuery, JS, CSS

    Scott O'Hara
    8 Oct 2014 | 11:00 am
    Not too long ago, a friend of mine had constructed a UI component to change a page’s content based on the the current selection of a <select> element. Her code worked, but being new to JavaScript, she had built the component in jQuery and had asked me to help optimize it. While not replicating the code exactly, I’ve created the following example to showcase the type of UI component she was trying to create: [code language="html"] Make a Selection Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 Option 1 Content Option 2 Content Option 3 Content [/code] After optimizing it a bit, here is the jQuery we…
  • Creating Nice Notifications with jQuery

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

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

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

    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

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

    Rebecca Gill

    Over the last few months my friend Chris has been pushing me to create a WordPress theme that would support DIY author website design. I was a little hesitant about this idea because I already had other products I wanted to create in my head. Chris knew it was a good idea and he knew this was a niche that was underserved by WordPress, so he continued to bring it up in conversation. After a while he created the base design for a template and sent it over to me. I’ll be the first to admit, his design was not only really good, it was perfect for creating an author website design that was both…

    When you contact a web development company, you may be asked a couple of questions, which can help the company in knowing you better and finding out what you need.

    Imagine, you so want to have your presence online, but just can’t seem to put your money where your mouth is. If someone tells you that they can take the burden off your shoulders by providing you with what the marketers usually call an affordable web design, wouldn’t it be like music to your ears? Now, you wouldn’t think that the same design can make you face the music (pun intended), would you? That your design may not be for those who use phablets? That it may not be responsive?  That it might make your site slow? That it may only have a simple layout, with no social media…

    When your customers look for you online, they may get to see two different sets of information – one that you provide them with and another that they can find on their own and which might comprise the inputs of competitors, employees (often disgruntled) and other customers. If you have no way of passing on the information you want them to see , they may be left with no other option but to trust whatever others tell them.

Till then, all we can do is speculate. Typography Commonly referred to as the use of fonts, typography is something that every web designer is familiar with. Or so they think, given the fact that many of them go overboard in their attempt to make the site look different and end up with what could be called a mockery of website design. What’s in?

    *forgive me if this article bounces around a bit – I’m writing as I’m thinking and very passionate today!* So I just finished listening to the latest three episodes of Unfinished Business, which mention a lot on mental health. Both Paul Boag and Andrew Clarke have talked frequently about their fights with depression. I’ve always found it interesting that our industry seems to have a huge concentration of people with mental health issues. I wonder if it’s because we don’t have to interact as much with people (face to face) as other industries? Because we can…
  • The Art of Client Filtering

    Amber Weinberg
    16 Jun 2014 | 9:18 am
    When we first start out as freelancers, our instinct is to accept every client and project that comes our way, and this is okay when we’re new to the industry. After all, you need to start making a name for yourself and you probably have bills to pay. But this practice is not maintainable in the long run. You’ll quickly start to notice that some clients are better than others. Some pay more, although higher pay doesn’t always mean a better client, and some might pay faster than others (always a bonus when that mortgage is due soon). Some clients might have smaller budgets,…
  • Extending Layout Control in WordPress by Combining Shortcodes and Advanced Custom Fields Plugin

    Amber Weinberg
    3 Apr 2014 | 1:34 pm
    A lot of my clients want the ultimate control when it comes to the layout of their website. While this isn’t usually affordable or feasible in normal websites, the Advanced Custom Fields plugin has been a godsend in allowing developers to go beyond basic WordPress functionality and into more advanced ways of content control and layouts. This became even more noticeable when I added on the Repeater field extension, which meant I no longer needed custom post types for small repeating items like sliders. Instead, I could house it on the homepage (or wherever the slider laid). And yes,…

So far I’ve had to sit down and write up business plans and ideas, draw UI wireframes, help the designer make decisions and think in terms of UX and actual users….and we haven’t even gotten past the landing page yet.

  • Advanced WordPress Tutorial: Making a Switching Category Menu

    Amber Weinberg
    23 Jan 2014 | 8:01 am
    A client of mine wanted to make a horizontal menu that listed all of their categories. Easy enough! But the client was going to have lots of categories, which meant that most would either have to be left out, or the horizontal list of categories was going to have to be multi-line. Not so good. So they asked if I could do something fancy and make an almost-slideshow-like menu with next/prev links to switch between them all. It looked like this: And of course, when clicking the more button: I knew I needed to set up the links in an unordered list in groups of seven. My first challenge was to…

    The beauty of flat art is that it can serve several purposes as graphic design elements, high-imptact illustrations, or even as icons, as opposed to more traditional illustrations. When an image is reduced to geometric shapes and color without gradation, it takes on a new identity and transforms from a literal visual interpretation into something more symbolic. In this week’s list, we’d like to feature some of the most striking people and characters depicted through various styles of flat art.

    Chris Spooner’s Photoshop tutorial will show you how to recreate that double exposure effect that’s more commonly achieved in photography. If you’re unfamiliar with the effect, it’s basically details of two or more images superimposed on each other. As Chris says, it’s a relatively simple process but the result depends on matching two complementary photographs or images, such as this lady’s profile and the forest scene below: It’s a marriage between to simple yet striking photos, from which you take their best elements to combine a surreal new image.

  • Dropcap.js Makes Beautiful Drop Caps Easy for the Web

    Ray Cheung
    23 Oct 2014 | 12:15 am
    Decorative initials, also known as drop capitals or “drop caps”, should be positioned on a baseline of the adjoining text; they should also be tall enough to reach the cap height of the first line of text. Though drop caps are very common in magazines and books, they remain rare on the web. We believe this is because doing it right simply and reliably is too difficult. A simple CSS float:left on a ::first-letter pseudo-element is not enough. Dropcap.js makes beautiful drop caps easy for the web. We tested dropcap.js on Windows (IE10+, Firefox, Chrome) and OSX (Firefox, Chrome, Safari).

    A brand is arguably a company’s most valuable asset, but it’s the brand logo in particular that really speaks volumes about the company. Every aspect of the design conveys a certain message to consumers — whether it’s the personality of the brand, the company’s values, or the target audience. It’s a hugely important part of a company’s branding strategy, and an enormous amount of time and money is invested into creating the perfect logo.

I assure you the grid layout is alive, well, and used all the time. Those who never learned it just don’t realize the rules of the grid and how one can use or even bend, or break those rules for success in designing incredible layouts. Firstly, using a grid layout isn’t something assigned to print or digital exclusively. Layout is layout and design is a method to convey a message…

    HTC unveiled something really interesting at their media event yesterday in New York City – a small camera call the RE Camera. It might look like a tiny periscope but the Re Camera is actually a capable shooter that challenges you to rethink the way you use cameras.

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

  • REM Sass Mixin With Pixel Fallback

    Paul
    22 Oct 2014 | 7:07 am
    The REM CSS unit is similar to the EM CSS unit except it allows you to size elements relative to the root of the HTML tag, as it stands for Root EM. The EM unit is relative to the font-size of the parent, which can cause problems in working out the correct size to use in descendent elements. Because the REM is relative to the root we can set the default font-size in the HTML tag which allows us to easily define the size of the other elements. Defining the html font-size as 62.5% allows us to defines REMs similar to pixels. html { font-size: 62.5%; } body { font-size: 1.4rem; } /* =14px */ h1…

    21 Oct 2014 | 7:12 am
    A few short years ago, a single-page website would be considered a “place holder” for the “real” web page that is supposedly (or should be) coming soon. Now that we are in a fast moving, constantly mobile society, one-pagers are a rapidly growing popular trend in website design. Not to be confused with a “landing page” (though slightly similar), single-page websites have all the necessary content on the same page instead of several different pages. All of the content is connected as can be viewed by scrolling horizontally or vertically. Why the rise in…

Of course, some people will affiliate colours with different emotions to others' but, if you look closely at some of the most iconic brands, you will see a strong pattern that simply must count for something.

    Facebook’s ranking algorithm can both help and hinder their users. If a person has hundreds of friends and likes hundreds of pages, Facebook will filter out some of the content. Instead of acting like a Twitter feed, which displays all posts in real time, Facebook will only show the most popular posts. Get More Fans to See Your Facebook Posts For brands that are noticing lower reach numbers, this is part of the problem. Over the past two years, Facebook reach numbers have dropped by over 50%. For users, this means potentially missing posts from their friends and companies they like. Users…

    We recently switched to Harvest and they just released a new tool to sweeten the deal called Forecast. We have been thinking about a good way to handle resourcing for some time. In the past, we have setup spreadsheets and looked into other apps, but nothing did what we needed quite like this. This obviously integrates with Harvest and makes it easy to manage active projects. At first, client names didn’t show and it was hard to know what projects were being added to our schedules.

    Marc Schenker

    You’ve just built your client what you think is a dynamite, new website. It looks cool, displays all of the social media buttons on the homepage, and maybe even took faster than you expected to complete. So what about designing for the user experience, so that your client’s conversions drastically increase? If you didn’t plan the design of your new site around this main concern, then it’s time to go back to the drawing board! Web designers should always have two questions on their minds when they begin the conception of any site they’re working on: How can I create a good user…

    Bootstrap has already made responsive web development a lot easier. But what if you didn’t have to write out all that code by hand? What if you could select the Bootstrap components you want to work with, and drag them onto your canvas? Well, that’s where a Bootstrap editor comes in. Bootstrap editors and builders make it easier to prototype, test and build responsive websites. Although each editor is different, they all feature some form of drag and drop functionality using Bootstrap’s huge library of components. In this post, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best…

But with the logistics of work life being what they are, you’ve probably landed on a few less-than-gorgeous tools and processes along the way. These ugly parts of your day-to-day can wear on you; your mind may (even now!) be hopping from “ugh, email attachments” to that awful project management tool your client somehow prefers.

  • Getting your web pages to rank

    akbar
    29 Sep 2014 | 4:00 am

If you have to use a large image file, create a separate page that displays the larger version of the picture and use a small image…
