  • Show Your Work: Demonstrating Progress on Your Projects

    A List Apart: The Full Feed
    31 Oct 2014 | 5:30 am
    I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how actual progress on a project doesn’t always match the impression of progress—sometimes a lot of code has changed but nothing looks very different, while other times a small change in code gives the sense that the whole project has moved leaps and bounds. This came up recently because of how my team had been prioritizing bug fixes on a responsive redesign project. Our normal process is that after sharing an early version of a responsive prototype with the client or internal stakeholder, we create a ton of bug reports (GitHub issues, in our case)…

    As part of a new series on the Headscape team, I would like to introduce you to Ed Merritt. I am sure he will inspire you as much as he does me. Don’t you hate web designers who spend their whole time writing blog posts and speaking at conferences. You know, without ever producing work. Web designers like me! You hear the same old names time and again, while there are other brilliant designers who toil away in obscurity. The people who do the real work. Ed Merritt is one such person. Ed is one of those designers who produces amazing work, but never shouts about it.So I thought I would…

    30 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Google News is one of the most visited news aggregator sites because of its functional interface. It’s a great tool in searching for information on the latest news topics due to its unique algorithm that tailor-fits news based on the user’s preferences. But does it need a redesign? Berlin-based designer George Kvasnikov thinks so. George Kvasnikov is a senior interface and graphic designer from Russia currently living in Berlin. He specializes in designing UI/UX and his portfolio is worth checking out. According to George, Google News was announced in 2002 and since then has…

It’s {Geek} Mental Help Week1 and we would like to help raise awareness with a couple of articles exploring these issues. – Ed. Talking about mental health can be awkward and embarrassing, but it really shouldn’t be. Mental health is just an illness, like any other. When we talk about mental health, we do so in hushed terms.

    I am not the sort of person who “airs her dirty laundry in public.” I wouldn’t walk into a mixed group of friends, colleagues, and complete strangers at a party and announce something deeply personal, and so it is with Twitter. For me, Twitter is a place to chat, a replacement for the Telnet Talkers I was so fond of in the 1990s. I share things I think are interesting, I keep up with what people I know are doing, but I see it as a public place. Recently, I had a Twitter conversation with someone who felt that people who don’t post about their bad days are being disingenuous. As if…

    Monika Zagrobelna
    31 Oct 2014 | 4:32 am
    What You'll Be CreatingSometimes you want to paint something, but your idea is too elusive to plan the picture properly. You just start painting and the result is unpredictable. In this tutorial I'll show you a fast method to paint freely and spontaneously, while keeping control over the process. I'll teach you how to tame your imagination and use it to bring an idea to life. A fast process requires simple tools, so we're going to use only one, self-made brush. Adobe Photoshop isn't obligatory here, but you'll need to work some things out yourself if you use other programs.In order to prove…

For the paint, you can choose between oil‑based paint and water-based paint. Oil-based paint is much glossier than water‑based paint and much thicker.

  • Automatic Creativity: How to Make Creative Thinking into a Habit

    David Masters
    20 Oct 2014 | 5:14 am
    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. As such, the better you are at coming up with effective ideas, the more value you create.In an information economy, it…

A popular approach is just to copy or try to undercut your competitors, but there are smarter ways.Academics have done a huge amount of research into how consumers respond to different types of prices. Some of the results are distinctly counter-intuitive, and by equipping yourself with the right data, you can profit from some interesting cognitive biases. Did you know, for example,…

       Believe it or not, there are some freelancers who are morons, and I don’t mean that in the good way. In the ranks of creative children who see other possibilities, color outside the lines, make their own lines and blended two or three crayons to create new colors to captivate the senses, there were some who experienced something that set them apart from other creative children. While the schoolyard beatings of we “different” children made most evolve inner strengths that made them incredibly sensitive, and insightful adults, I suspect some suffered brain damage.

    I really like Norway and the Norwegian people are among the friendliest I’ve met, so I never need convincing to visit them. While I was in Oslo in October, speaking at the Making Web conference I met the wonderful people at IGM and when they asked me to take my CSS3 For Responsive Web Design workshop back to Oslo on December 3rd, I jumped at the chance.CSS3 For Responsive Web Design workshop This new version of my ‘CSS3 For Responsive Web Design’ workshop was very well received at The Web Is… conference this week.

    This week is Geek Mental Help week and on Unfinished Business I’m joined by Liz Elcoate, one of the people who helped to spark the idea.

But not before we talk sport, Liz’s obsession with wrestling and my Uncle Haystacks.This week’s episode is sponsored by Perch Runway, a new version of Perch that’s been designed for bigger, more complex projects.

    23 Oct 2014 | 1:04 pm
    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. Code Enigma’s original mark was a puzzle that looked like it couldn’t be solved. 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…

    Kevin Mark Rabida
    30 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Google News is one of the most visited news aggregator sites because of its functional interface. It’s a great tool in searching for information on the latest news topics due to its unique algorithm that tailor-fits news based on the user’s preferences. But does it need a redesign? Berlin-based designer George Kvasnikov thinks so. George Kvasnikov is a senior interface and graphic designer from Russia currently living in Berlin. He specializes in designing UI/UX and his portfolio is worth checking out. According to George, Google News was announced in 2002 and since then has…

    A Curved World Inspired by Creativity As graphic designers, we spend most of our days in front of our workstations. And of all of our various tools of creation, the computer monitor is arguably the heart of our operation. If monitors are able to display our works as designed, our lives would be a whole lot easier. Image accuracy issues become a thing of the past. It isn’t all about resolution, though. As we work on more and more projects, we find ourselves praying for more real estate. Screen size, all of a sudden, becomes a priority. Most of us shift to using a dual-monitor setup to…

    Have you ever felt the urge to draw on filthy car windows? I bet most of us had experience doodling on layers of dust coating a car window. We all love to put a humorous “wash me!” or even draw a family of stick figures on the window. Well Scott Wade—also known as the “The Da Vinci of Dust” and “The Dirty Car Artist“—is simply taking this act a notch higher. He uses the accumulated dust in the car’s window to create intricate masterpieces. His vast portfolio features several re-creations of some of  the most famous art pieces including the Mona…

    Personally, I strive to put as much meaning into the logo designs I create for my clients – sometimes overtly, sometimes subtly and there are some great logos out there that do just that. Below is a compilation of 40 creative examples of logos that portray some sort of “hidden message” or symbolism if you will. Have you spotted any of these hidden messages before? I’m sure you will not forget them once you see them! Do you have any others to add to the list? Via AdWeek & compiled by MadebyOomph.

    This article has been contributed by Megan Ritter. With the rise of social media quickly becoming a primary means of communication, there are still plenty of businesses out there struggling to develop an effective social media marketing strategy. With the number of different platforms available, as well as the specific etiquette that goes with them, many businesses find it difficult to find and share content that appeals to their audience. Not only do they need to consider what the audience wants to see, but marketers need to also consider what kind of content will boost overall branding,…

The purpose of the event is to engage a younger demographic while raising awareness about myeloma — a cancer arising from plasma cells that are made in the bone marrow. “Launched and hosted at the Turner Contemporary in Margate, our new identity drew inspiration from the venue architecture by David Chipperfield.

  • Design Matters: Tom Geismar

    David Airey

    This month’s episode of Design Matters is with Tom Geismar. “All a logo does is represent whatever the entity is, and peoples’ feelings about it are completely determined by their experiences with that entity. 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. Paul Rand designed Enron’s logo and it really was very good but no one would ever say that because their feelings are too much affected by the history. So it’s not the logos’ design, it…

One reason people, especially young people with creative aspirations, work for free is to form valuable relationships that will push their careers forward. But you can’t form a valuable relationship with a rich person who can afford to but won’t pay you a reasonable wage, because your entire relationship with that rich person is based on their failure to…

  • Taking Control of the CSS/JS that WordPress Plugins Load

    Chris Coyier
    31 Oct 2014 | 7:48 am
    The other day on ShopTalk a question we got led us down a short tangent on WordPress plugins, the resources they load, and what that would look like in a perfect world. I ended up writing up some thoughts on it and getting some feedback. I think it came to a somewhat satisfying conclusion so I figured I write it up. How Some Plugins Work Now Let's take a real-world example. The WP-Polls plugin. I think it's a nice plugin. Does a good job with polls. I use it here on CSS-Tricks. To put those polls on your site, it needs some JavaScript to handle the functionality (i.e. voting and seeing…

    I'm posting this just as a big ol' high five to Wufoo for being a long time sponsor of CSS-Tricks. Wufoo is a web app for building web forms. Things like contact forms, conference registration forms, t-shirt selling forms, wedding RSVP's, you name it. You put the forms on your own site (if you like). They work on small screens. They don't get spammed. They save their data forever. They can be multi-page and use logic. Everything you need a form to do. As many of you also know, I was a somewhat early employee of Wufoo back in the day. I'm still quite proud of the work we did at Wufoo and I'm…

    We just covered shape morphing in SVG, where shapes change from one to another. Let's look at shapes that blob into each other! You know, that gooey squishy blobby effect like droplets of mercury on a surface. I'm not sure who first discovered this was possible on the web, but the first place I ever saw it was a demo by Lucas Bebber: See the Pen Gooey Pagination by Lucas Bebber (@lbebber) on CodePen. And then again by Felix Hornoiu (low framerate GIF for web practicality): Demo from here. The trick is fairly simple, use filter to BOTH add blur and contrast to an element The blur obvious makes…

    I saw an HTML5 date input the other day, which had the dropdown arrow on the right, which I've grown accustom to clicking to reveal a calendar datepicker in which to choose a date. Typically, that looks like this: <input type="date" /> I've seen variations on this before, like when you use a week input instead of date: <input type="week" /> But I hadn't seen this before: Turns out that's what you get when you apply a <datalist> to an input of that type! Who knew! The format is like this: <input type="date" list="days"> <datalist id="days"> <option…

    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…

Drum-roll please… Write the way you speak Think about it: When you talk, people understand you. They listen to you. You engage them. You don’t get talkers-block either! So, don’t treat your written words differently from your spoken words. Just type them, rather than speaking them. This is the approach I used when I started as a writer and it has never failed me.

  • 6 creative ways to get employees more involved with social

    Arik Hanson
    18 Aug 2014 | 6:14 am
    We’ve all heard the rallying cry: “We need to get our employees on social media” “We need to *activate* our employees socially” (that’s my favorite, actually; how exactly, do you activate a human being? I didn’t know there was an off/on switch) “We need our employees to tweet this sale” While those all sound extremely fun and exciting from an employee perspective (can you sense my sarcasm?), I think there are a number of creative ways companies could rally the troops when it comes to social. We just don’t hear about it that often. What we do hear are tips like this: “Get…

    If your organisation wants to be successful in its use of digital it cannot stop at rolling out a fancy new website or mobile app. It needs to address the culture of the organisation. Since Digital Adaptation came out in March, I have been doing a lot of consultancy. Consultancy for organisations struggling with digital adoption. Charities, universities, government, not for profits and the private sector. All are unsure how to adapt to the digital world we now live in. Although keen to change, they are also hesitant.

  • If you want clients to sign off your design, you need to learn some new skills

    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.

  • 30 Examples of Website Search Interface Design

    Jake Rocheleau
    24 Oct 2014 | 7:45 am
    Advertise here with BSANot many designers place enough focus on the benefits of creative search fields. For content-heavy websites most users will be prepared to search for what they’re looking for. If the search interface sucks then people will be forced to leave and hit Google, or worse… Ask Jeeves. Instead of driving people away like a repugnant foul pot roast, why not spice up the design and give it some flavor? Then everyone will simply adore the pot roast! In this analogy the pot roast is a stinky search input field that just needs a little TLC. I’ve put together a…

    The iPhone 6. This is the best iPhone that Apple has made, there’s no doubt in my mind. A new form-factor combined with a larger, more brilliant display, come together to create a product that feels truly extraordinary. I find myself constantly running my finger across the edge of the new curved display, trying to find the impossibly-small seam between glass and metal. Each iteration of the iPhone’s packaging continues to simplify, to the point where all we’re left with is a pure-white box with polished letters across the side: “iPhone” – no frills here. I…

Yesterday’s Wired piece likens the app to a $15,000 video setup in the palm of your hands – a bold label, indeed. In this post I will explore the wonderful level of polish and style that Instagram’s designers have poured into Hyperlapse.

Some of the advantages are that people feel more immersed in what they are watching, they create a wider per say “view of the field”, you can see more sharpness at the edges of the image, pictures appear to have more depth, richer contrast performance, and you can watch pictures from a wider viewing angle. Needless to say I guess the curved screens must be here to stay. LG has just launched…

    Advertise here with BSABalance seems like a word directed at print designers and tightrope walkers. But the world of balanced web design is influenced just as much by print and circus folk! A sense of balance is achieved through repetition much like a pendulum swing – you add a little bit then take some away. You push content to one side then add a little more to the other side. 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.

  • The Beauty of Minimal Portfolio Design

    Carol Francis
    9 Oct 2014 | 6:37 am
    It wasn’t that many years ago when creating a design was a matter of cramming as much as possible onto each page, particularly the landing page – with the view that site owners want their visitors to get an eyeful of what they have to offer right off the bat. 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…
  • Emotional Design and Animations

    Emotions allow for people to comprehend the world better; it’s how we learn new things. Items that are more aesthetically pleasing are seen in a more positive light; the item appears to be faster, more effective, more fun, all in all better. 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. Emotional design as explained by Don applies to…

    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,…

    27 Oct 2014 | 12:30 am
    While a ‘dark on light’ colour scheme is the most common approach for website design, some designers are creating powerful sites with dark interfaces.

    Cameron Chapman
    31 Oct 2014 | 1:15 am
    If you’re not familiar with Cards Against Humanity, think of it like Apples to Apples for very sick and twisted (grown-up) minds. They don’t call it “A Party Game for Horrible People” for nothing. While the game is definitely not for everyone (NSFW doesn’t even begin to cover it), the website selling the game is a fantastic example of doing everything right in ecommerce design. It’s fun, easy to use, and stands out from the huge volume of other online stores out there. Best of all, it fits the company’s brand perfectly. A little history Cards Against…

    Paul Boag

    We have all been there haven’t we? The meeting where the client asks you to subscribe users to their newsletter without their permission. Or when they insist on adding an overlay to the homepage promoting their latest offer. In fact these kinds of requests have become so common that they have their own name — dark patterns. As web designers these kinds of requests seem so alien. The idea of user centric design lies at the heart of everything we do. How could anybody suggest things that undermine the user experience? Yet despite our best attempts the client insists on these changes. They…

  • 4 Effective Ways to Iterate Design Work

    Tom Kenny
    29 Oct 2014 | 6:52 am
    Iterating design work is an important part of the process to produce better work. How many times has the first thing you designed been the best option? A few, but far from the majority. Your first design will almost certainly not be the best you can make it. Even if it does seem like you’ve got something great initially, everything can be improved with refinement. Many of the products you use and love have become great through iterating and it all happens behind the scenes. From the outside, great websites look like they’ve got it right first time but in reality that’s almost never the…

    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…

  • Freebie: Pixel Patterns for Transparencies in Photoshop

    Onextrapixel Team
    31 Oct 2014 | 8:01 am
    Transparency in web design is very popular these days. A transparent screen over an image makes a light or dark text stand out on a multi-colored photograph. Going a little further, designers are also using pixel patterns to create a mesh over the image. This is not a difficult process, even making the pattern for Photoshop is not complicated, but having a selection of such patterns is just another way of saving time in the middle of a high-pressure project or set of projects.

The structure of the demos was a fullscreen grid before, but now they have adjusted it to contain single rows of figures where it’s easier to see how an effect looks in its normal state and when hovering. As in the previous set, they try to make the effects as smooth as possible, not using any transition on properties that affect layout or painting.

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,…

    Advertise here with BSACrafting your layout around iconic symbolism offers a method of communication beyond just text. Symbols quickly explain the function of a button or link. 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.

  • 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…

  • Working with Phone Numbers in JavaScript

    Lukas White
    29 Oct 2014 | 11:00 am
    When you're collecting data from users, there are two key challenges; collecting that information, and validating it. Some types of information are straightforward - someone's age, for example, couldn't really be simpler to collect and to validate. Names aren't as straightforward as they sound, but provided you cater for edge cases and international variations - for example patronymics, the mononymous, or even just people with hyphenated surnames - you can't go too far wrong (although plenty of applications and services do!). Email addresses, while theoretically very easy to validate, have…
  • Creating an Opt-in Monster Clone with jQuery

    David Turnbull
    28 Oct 2014 | 9:30 am
    Without a doubt, the most effective way to build an email list is to create a modal that appears when a visitor stumbles across your website. This modal will then contain an opt-in form that they simply can't ignore (usually with a compelling bribe to hand over their email, like a free download of some sort). This approach is not without its share of controversy, but: They remain incredibly effective. The complaints are from a vocal minority. To create these modals, most people use third-party software like Opt-in Monster, LeadPages, or the List Builder plugin from SumoMe. But while these…

    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.

    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…

    Over the last few months my friend Chris has been pushing me to create a WordPress theme that would support DIY author website design.

After a while he created the base design for a template and sent it over to me.

  • Resizing and Cropping Images with Canvas

    Mike Riethmuller

    In this tutorial we’re going to learn how to resize and crop an image using the HTML5 <canvas> element, and while we’re at it, let’s create some fancy controls for resizing, commonly seen in photo editing applications. In a real world example a website or app might use a technique like this to resize and frame a profile picture before uploading.

The idea is based on a Dribble shot called GIF Exercise by Sergey Valiukh where a lot of jell-o-like movements are happening. Navigating from one item to another makes the items move in a wobbly fashion and we thought this might be great to try out on a real slideshow. To achieve this effect we used Snap.svg and animated the slide background SVGs in order to simulate the elastic effect. What happens is that we basically morph an SVG path from a rectangle to a curved shaped; either a right curve…

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,…

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,…

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…

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.

    Codrops has updated and added some more effects to the Hover Effect Ideas. It’s a second set of styles with some fresh effects with various transitions. The structure of the demos was a fullscreen grid before, but now they have adjusted it to contain single rows of figures where it’s easier to see how an effect looks in its normal state and when hovering. As in the previous set, they try to make the effects as smooth as possible, not using any transition on properties that affect layout or painting. But trying out new things, there could be some glitches in Firefox on Windows (tiny…

    If you’re not familiar with Cards Against Humanity, think of it like Apples to Apples for very sick and twisted (grown-up) minds. They don’t call it “A Party Game for Horrible People” for nothing. While the game is definitely not for everyone (NSFW doesn’t even begin to cover it), the website selling the game is a fantastic example of doing everything right in ecommerce design. It’s fun, easy to use, and stands out from the huge volume of other online stores out there. Best of all, it fits the company’s brand perfectly. A little history Cards Against…

    Paul Boag
    28 Oct 2014 | 1:15 am
    We have all been there haven’t we? The meeting where the client asks you to subscribe users to their newsletter without their permission. Or when they insist on adding an overlay to the homepage promoting their latest offer. In fact these kinds of requests have become so common that they have their own name — dark patterns. As web designers these kinds of requests seem so alien. The idea of user centric design lies at the heart of everything we do. How could anybody suggest things that undermine the user experience? Yet despite our best attempts the client insists on these changes. They…

    If you’re working on a slogan for your start-up, or maybe trying to re-brand your existing company, coming up with an effective slogan can be a challenge, to say the least. A good slogan can make or break your brand, so it’s important to get it right. Having said that, if something doesn’t work, try something else.

    The following is a guest post by Brendon Miller.   Ecommerce websites are very popular these days because they help buyers select any branded item from home, anytime. Shoppers can avoid crowd and stop using cash by using e-commerce websites. Another great advantage of online shopping is that the seller delivers the purchased item at the buyer’s doorstep. Considering the growth of online shopping across the world, many companies are planning to launch their own e-commerce site. Entering the field of e-commerce is certainly a good idea, but needs a lot of consideration. For a profit…

I also want to say that I did not just sit down and write this as a rant.

  • 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.

When WordPress displays a piece of content it selects the theme template by using a hierarchy of files, for example if you want to view the content of the a single post the WordPress hierarchy is: single-{post_type}.php single.php index.php This works by searching for the single-{post_type}.php file in the theme, if it's not there then it will search of the single.php file, if that isn't there then it will just use the index.php file to display the content. By default WordPress will…
  • Add Custom Meta To Taxonomies

    Paul
    27 Oct 2014 | 1:31 am
    In this tutorial we are going to learn how we can add additional data to your taxonomies. WordPress comes with the ability to add meta data onto both the posts and user objects. These are stored in separate tables such as the wp_postmeta and wp_usermeta tables. Both of these tables use a key and value pair columns to store the different data just like in the wp_options table. There is no default way of adding additional information to your taxonomies, such as images, a further description or any other attributes you want to attach to the taxonomy. Creating A Class For Custom Meta The…
  • 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…

    The in-built WordPress menu system allows the content author to create a menu by a simple drag n drop interface, it allows you to select existing posts, page or let you create custom links to add to the menu. Using the drag n drop interface you can select child elements on the menu. When you output the menu on your theme using the function wp_nav_menu() WordPress will automatically create the HTML for the menu and the sub-menu on your theme allowing you to easily create a menu link this.

  • Register New Post Statuses In WordPress

    Paul
    6 Oct 2014 | 1:19 am
    WordPress posts allow you to have some form of workflow when editing your posts. This is done by assigning a post status for each stage of the WordPress posts. By default the WordPress will take up the status of Draft which tells WordPress to create a post but not to publish it on the front-end of the site, it will only publish it on the site when you hit the publish button and the post status is changed to publish. Default Statuses The default WordPress statuses are: Publish - Viewable to public users on the front-end of the site. Future - Posts which are scheduled to be published on a…

  • HTML5 Video and the End of Plugins

    28 Jul 2014 | 2:23 pm
    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…

    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…

This serious vulnerability would allow an attacker to reveal up to 64kB of memory to a connected client or server.

We fixed this vulnerability as of 8:00PM PST on Monday, Apr 7th.

Yep, that’s email subscribers, sales, leads or anything you want it to be.With the right colors combined with the use of ‘passive’ and ‘action’ colors you can increase your conversions.Sound magical?

    Introduction Recently, when Google had introduced its new unified messaging platform – Hangouts, it had created some worry and concern about Voice – Google’s web-based telecom services. This worry was abated to a certain extent when Google clarified that the full Voice functionality would be part of Hangouts very soon. The concern took hold when many users had quickly discovered that an update to the App had disabled the ability to make outbound calls from a desktop computer. In the absence of a promise that the functionality would return soon, all sorts of speculation were…

The question you have to ask yourself is this: Do you want to spend your time developing a skill set and a mastery over a specific area in a job, a job where you could be replaced, fired, or become obsolete…or would you rather spend that time learning how to generate an income without a job? There is nothing inherently wrong with having a job, particularly if you’re a professional and a top performer. But outside of that why…
