  • Why are there so many bad user interfaces in the world?

    Boagworld - Web & Digital Advice
    Paul Boag
    5 May 2015 | 4:00 am
    Have you ever wondered why you encounter so many bad user interfaces everyday? The answer is not as straightforward as you might think. From unnecessary clicks in a mobile app to slow web pages, the world is full of substandard user interfaces. We all get frustrated by poor user interfaces. So why do they exist? If we all hate them wouldn’t we stop building them. It’s not like there are people who like the complex, time consuming and frustrating. We think we know the answer. It is either down to incompetence or lack of budget. Either the designer knows no better or isn’t…

    Do you want to be your own boss? If you’re working as a web designer, the prospect of going out on your own and setting up your own agency can seem tempting.But it’s not a simple task. You’ll need to learn a whole new set of skills, from bookkeeping to marketing, as well as taking practical steps like figuring out whether you have enough money to get started and survive until you're breaking even. So for this tutorial I got in touch with some web design agency owners, and asked for their best piece of advice for people who want to follow in their footsteps. Here are some of their…

  • 1 hour of research saves 10 hours of development time

    bokardo
    30 Apr 2015 | 4:59 am
    I was recently talking to a developer who was building out a new stream view for a web app she was working on. She was in the middle of getting infinite scrolling to work, which isn’t very hard for developers these days but it does take a significant amount of time to do elegantly. My experience has shown me that in most cases streams are not the best way to present information. In fact, outside of social apps streams are rarely useful. So I started asking questions about what the stream view was for. Who was going to use it and what would they do with it? Very basic questions. It turns…
  • Tips on how to hire a good designer

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

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

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

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

  • Rekindling Your Passion For Web Design

    Jeremy Girard
    22 May 2015 | 6:19 am
    I love being a web designer and I’m incredibly thankful that I decided to join this industry many years ago. Still, despite my love of this profession, there have been a number of times during my career when my passion has waned and I’ve found myself simply going through the motions instead of fully applying myself to my work. This scenario is likely familiar to many of my fellow web designers. It is called burnout. Burnout is a very real challenge that we face as web professionals. The same processes that help us complete projects successfully can also contribute to us falling into a…
  • Building An Advanced Notification System For WordPress

    A lot of tools enable us to distribute a website’s content, but when we need to promptly reach a target group, an email notification system might be the best option. If your website is not frequently updated, you could notify all subscribers each time a post is published. However, if it’s updated frequently or it covers several topics, you could filter subscribers before mailing them. If you opt for the latter, you could set up a user meta field that stores a bit of information to identify the subscribers to be notified. The same bit of information would label the posts you’re…
  • Testing For And With Windows Phone

    Daniel Herken
    19 May 2015 | 2:00 am
    Although Windows Phone usage is still low compared with other browsers1 it’s sometimes necessary to test your web work for Internet Explorer Mobile. For web developers, this could be a complication. Testing for the Windows Phone environment is not always optional, but it can be a chore — especially because the version of Internet Explorer that comes with the Windows Phone can be quirky at best. If you’re a developer without a Windows Phone device, you might have to get a little creative to ensure that your websites are being rendered properly. The Nokia Lumia 920. (Image…
  • A Better Way To Design For Retina In Photoshop

    Murdoch Carpenter
    18 May 2015 | 6:02 am
    Recently, I had a project in which I needed to produce high-fidelity screens for a tablet. I was to present these screens on the device and also produce a clickable prototype. They needed to be pixel-perfect. The timeline was tight (as always), so I went with my go-to tool, Photoshop. I’ve been using it for over ten years, and it gives me the fastest high-quality output. Are you designing at “Retina” resolution in Photoshop? If the answer is yes, then this article is for you. I will walk you through the problems I faced in creating Retina mockups to be displayed on a tablet device. I…
  • Sketch With Material Design

    Patrick Keenan
    14 May 2015 | 11:21 pm
    In the past year, adoption of Sketch at Google, where I work at, has taken off and is now a widely preferred tool. The more tools in our belts, the better, so here’s my take on why Sketch and the new material design1 system are a great match. Tools are an extension of our hands, and as such, they should be versatile, quick and intuitive. A lot has changed between the print era of offset presses and the digital era of cross-platform screens. Developers have attempted to adapt our tools, but Sketch is perhaps the most successful app in this regard — its creators have removed the bloat,…

  • Mark Llobrera · Professional Amateurs: Instant Web

    21 May 2015 | 5:29 am
    Instant Articles are here, and the announcement is all about speed. From a user perspective, I think that Instant Articles are a good thing. But I bristle at the implications for the open web. Implicit in the sales pitch (and explicit in much of the commentary that followed) is the familiar criticism that the traditional HTML/CSS/JS web stack is too slow to deliver a first-class experience. Facebook may have been throwing shade, but others were more overt in their criticism. John Gruber put it in stark terms: I worry that the inherent slowness of the web and ill-considered trend toward…
  • 15 Years Ago in ALA: Much Ado About 5K

    20 May 2015 | 5:30 am
    15 years ago this month, a plucky ALA staffer wrote “Much Ado About 5K,” an article on a contest created by Stewart Butterfield that challenged web designers and developers to build a complete website using less than five kilobytes of images and code. Hundreds did, and their work far exceeded what any web professional could have reasonably expected: Halfway through the judging, we hated this contest. Not because the work was bad. But because so much of it was so very, very good. Arguably, more great work was submitted to this contest than to many of this year’s big-time awards shows. It…
  • Meta-Moments: Thoughtfulness by Design

    19 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    Ever had a moment on the internet when you’ve been forced to stop and think about what you’re doing? Maybe you’ve been surprised. Maybe you’ve stumbled across something new. Maybe you’ve come to see things in a different light. I call such experiences meta-moments: tiny moments of reflection that prompt us to think consciously about what we’re experiencing. Take Google. In the early days, its clean white page helped distinguish it from the pack. While its competitors tripped all over themselves telling you how great they were and how much they had to offer, Google’s quieter…

    There’s a curious concept in astrophysics known as the Drake Equation. Developed to quantify the potential for intelligent life in our galaxy, it raises a number of odd questions, among them: does having intelligence, in the long run, actually benefit or harm a species? In other words, will amoebas ultimately outlive humans in the face of eternity? If you’re like me, these are the types of things you think about while listening to hold music before conference calls. But as a content strategist, I can’t help but ask the same question about something my clients suddenly seem to be…

  • Stitches: Free CSS Sprite Generator

    Denis Potschien
    22 May 2015 | 1:00 am
    As we know, less files to download mean better loading performance and page reproduction. Therefore, icons and other images, particularly small images, are often combined into a sprite. A sprite is a collection of several images put into one image file. Creating a sprite manually requires some work. The images are arranged in an image file and their position, width, and height need to be defined in a stylesheet. The Stitches sprite generator speeds up these processes immensely. Upload Simple Images There’s probably no easier way to create sprites than with Stitches. Images you want to…
  • JavaScript: Using Closure Space to Create Real Private Members

    David Catuhe
    21 May 2015 | 1:00 am
    I recently developed Angular Cloud Data Connector, which enables Angular developers to use cloud data, specifically Azure mobile service, using web standards like indexed DB. I was trying to create a way for JavaScript developers to embed private members into an object. My technique for this specific case is to use what I call “closure space”. In this tutorial, I want to share with you how to use this for your own projects and how performance and memory are impacted for the major browsers. But before diving into it, let me share why you may need private members, as well as an…

  • A byte saved is a follower earned: Web Performance Then And Now

    Jeffrey Zeldman
    20 May 2015 | 5:56 am
    FIFTEEN years ago this month, a plucky ALA staffer wrote “Much Ado About 5K,” an article on a contest created by Stewart Butterfield that challenged web designers and developers to build a complete website using less than five kilobytes of images and code. As one group of modern web makers embraces mobile-first design and performance budgets, while another (the majority) worships at the altar of bigger, fatter, and slower, the 5K contest reminds us that a byte saved is a follower earned. More in 15 Years Ago in ALA: Much Ado About 5K.

    IN ISSUE № 420 of A List Apart: Meta-Moments: Thoughtfulness by Design by ANDREW GRIMES Does the internet ever stop you in your tracks?

  • “Creative” is not a dirty word

    Jeffrey Zeldman
    23 Apr 2015 | 2:02 pm
    THERE’S a meme promulgated by my dear friend Monteiro that they call you creative to take your power away. Rubbish. Don’t get me wrong. I agree with most of what Mike Monteiro has to say about design, which is why I published his two brilliant books. Except for this one point, on which we will forever disagree. “Creative” is not a dirty word, and it doesn’t diminish our profession to admit that creativity is part of what goes into great design—along with research, data, conversation, testing, and all the other science-y stuff we trot…

    Jeffrey Zeldman
    20 Apr 2015 | 6:48 am
    IN 2003, long before he was a creative director at Twitter, Douglas Bowman wrote articles about design, posted case studies about his design projects, and shared his photography on his personal/business site, stopdesign.com. A year previously, Doug had attained instant fame in standardista circles by recoding Wired.com using CSS for layout. That sounds nonsensical nowadays, but in 2002, folks like me were still struggling to persuade our fellow web designers to use CSS, and not HTML tables, for layout. Leading web designers had begun seeing the light, and there had been a sudden profusion of…

    I imagine if I told people in advance that I was talking to director of UX at MailChimp Aarron Walter and Founder of User Interface Engineering Jared Spool on Unfinished Business this week, they’d imagine we’d talk about user experience design and possibly education. Instead, they and I talk about action figures and Action Man and whether fighting Nazis is cooler than fighting aliens.

We start by talking about magazines, including 8faces and the new edition of Lagom. Then we discuss how the perceptions that people can have about us, our companies or even how busy we are can be really different from the reality, plus an event that we’re planning for designers and developers to get together to share business experiences.

    I’ve been enjoying—and a little jealous of how he can write every day— Jeremy Keith’s 100 words series. Today he wrote about A List Apart’s 15 Years of Dao and I could not agree more with what he said here: I fear that today we run the risk of treating web development no different to other kinds of software development, ignoring the strengths of the web that John highlighted for us. Flexibility, ubiquity, and uncertainty: don’t fight them as bugs; embrace them as features. Substitute ‘software development’ with ‘digital product design’ and you…

  • Measuring emotion

    Kyle Neath
    3 May 2015 | 5:00 pm
    One of the most important responsibilities for managers in tech companies are having regular one-on-ones with their team. The idea is to meet with each member of the team once every week or two, face-to-face, to talk about whatever the team member wants. And the face-to-face part is crucial. Our brains process an immense amount of information during a conversation — eye contact, facial expressions, intonation, body language — everything that’s beyond the content of our words (what an email might convey). This information trains our intuitive reasoning, building understanding and…

    As someone who’s recently struggled with the pace of my work and where to focus my energy, I really related to David Brooks' recent essay The Moral Bucket List: But I confess I often have a sadder thought: It occurs to me that I’ve achieved a decent level of career success, but I have not achieved that. I have not achieved that generosity of spirit, or that depth of character. On passions: Commencement speakers are always telling young people to follow their passions. Be true to yourself.

    There’s a lot of interesting things that happen the first time you really grow a company. Most are exciting, some are challenging, and a few are downright confusing. 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. I wanted to start a scene. I wanted to get real angry, real public. But my customers…

    This article has been contributed by Nicole Boyer. Because we are so accustomed to the technological aspects of graphic design today, we forget that all of such work begins with ideas – creative ideas – that have existed for centuries and that have permeated our “landscape” since the printing press was invented. Indeed, many Italian graphic designers experimented with typography, once the movable type press was available. It might actually surprise people to know that the first movable type printing press was developed in China in the 11th century, 400 years before Gutenberg designed…

For many reasons, it’s something that’s extremely hard to get right, and despite the fact that there are literally thousands of typefaces to choose from, it’ll probably always seem as though the typeface you actually want simply doesn’t exist. Even if you do manage to pick a winning primary typeface for your design, you’ll then need to begin the painstaking process all over again in order to find yet another typeface to compliment…

    More than half a century after it was designed, Allan Fleming’s CN monogram still looks like it could’ve been created today. Designers around the world often choose it amongst their favourite marks. Here are the lesser known logos that preceded it. Much of the following information is courtesy of CN. 1852: Grand Trunk Railway CN’s logo dates back to the birth of Canada’s first major railroad, the Grand Trunk Railway (GTR), a line that eventually joined others to form CN. Built originally to link Montreal and Toronto in the 1850s, GTR saw its future as an international…

    Microsoft, who in 2011 paid $8.5bn for Skype, has been blocked from registering a trademark in Europe for Skype’s name and logo. In response to a complaint from Rupert Murdoch’s Sky, judges at the General Court of the European Union said about Skype: “Conceptually, the figurative element conveys no concept, except perhaps that of a cloud. “[That] would further increase the likelihood of the element ‘Sky’ being recognised within the word element ‘Skype’, for clouds are to be found ‘in the sky’ and thus may readily be associated with…

    OK, so some spacing walks into a bar, trips and falls on the floor. The bartender asks if he should be cut off and the spacing replies, "No, I'm just a collapsed margin." Sorry, dumb joke. On a more serious note, collapsing margins are real and they can be a real pain in the neck if you're not aware of what they are and how they behave. Here are a couple of scenarios where we'd see these little buggers come into play. When Vertical Worlds Collide Collapsing margins happen when two vertical margins come in contact with one another.

    We all have them – design projects we’d like to take back. Some of them you can attribute to a bad design brief or youth; others you just want to hide forever. The good news is that you can often avoid design mistakes; the bad news is that every designer will fall in at least one of these traps at some point in his or her career. But part of the key to avoiding designer mishaps is knowing what they are, so you can be aware if you feel yourself slipping into one of these bad habits. 1.

    To map the customer journey it is necessary to speak to a lot of people. Often the easiest approach is to run a workshop. But how exactly would that work? I’m a fan of customer journey mapping. It is a great way of engaging companies with the user’s experience and identifying shortcomings in the way they operate.

While I’ve taken a fair stab at setting up a few blogs, I could never quite get the app to stick with me in the same way that a personal WordPress site (or even Medium) has been able to do. That being said, I think Tumblr is one of the coolest apps in the world right now with world-class design and an extremely polished end-product.

It differs from large background images only really in it’s height – a hero area usually occupies about half to two thirds of the landing page depth, and is followed by the content, icons or text or even another…

    Remember this issue? Well, Frontier have finally responded to a ~ 270 page long thread on their forums about the Steam key issue. Community Manager Edward Lewis wrote: Hi everyone, Some breaking news for you: We’ll soon be offering Steam keys to anyone who bought Elite: Dangerous from the EliteDangerous.com store who would like a key, and to anyone who buys the game from our store in the future. We always appreciate it when you buy direct from our store because it means we can put more into supporting and developing Elite: Dangerous, but we know a number of long-time players and backers…
  • Elite: Dangerous arrives on Steam, another U-turn for Frontier

    Alexander Rehm
    2 Apr 2015 | 1:00 pm
    So, the kickstarter campaign-funded Elite: Dangerous has been out for a little while now, and people are enjoying it (Metacritic giving it a 80/100). I for one really enjoy it, though I admit I should be playing it more. Anyway, Frontier Developments, the company behind it made a serious U-Turn during the developments of the game, changing it from offline-enabled (as originally planned for the release) to requiring an always-on connection (though, they have made decent strides towards only requiring a very limited connection to be able to play the game. Now, what many hoped would just be an…

    Stop me if you’ve heard this one: In the middle of a design presentation, a puzzled audience member raises their hand and asks, Why is all the copy in a foreign language? It’s not a joke — but I can’t help but laugh at the countless times I’ve used lorem ipsum in a prototype, only to have it confuse someone on our team.

  • Design Patterns: Delegation

    The delegation pattern is among the most common patterns in iOS and OS X development. It is a simple pattern that is heavily used by Apple's frameworks and even the simplest iOS application leverages delegation to do its work. Let's start by looking at the definition of delegation. 1. What Is Delegation?DefinitionThe definition of the delegation pattern is short and simple. This is how Apple defines the pattern.A delegate is an object that acts on behalf of, or in coordination with, another object when that object encounters an event in a program. Let's break that down.

  • Moving WordPress: Moving Your Site From a Subdirectory to the Root Directory

    There are times when you need to create a WordPress site in a subdirectory and not the root directory for the domain it's hosted on. I sometimes do this if I'm developing a new WordPress site to replace a static site, and I want to leave the static site in place while giving the client access to the new site during development for approval. Even if you do your development work locally, you may sometimes need to do this.When you come to make the site live, you don't want its URL to be mysite.com/subdirectory—you want it to be mysite.com.

  • 3 key lessons for websites that work

    Emma Grant
    22 May 2015 | 4:45 am
    Almost every web design story has three main actors. Each of them occupies a particular place in the story, and each has different motivations and expectations. These characters are the client, the designer, and the user. There is a particular hierarchy that is supposed to exist between the three; but due to the nature of the process, this hierarchy frequently gets mixed up. The result is a plethora of poorly designed websites that are cluttered with unnecessary extras, which exist because of a power struggle between the client and the designer.

    Jerry Cao
    20 May 2015 | 4:45 am
    Usability testing, with real users, is one of the key areas that too many web designers skip. Often, there is little money in the budget for tests, but remote usability testing can be relatively cheap to perform, and the results can make a huge difference to a site’s conversions. To demonstrate the power of usability testing in design, we teamed up with UserTesting and Optimal Workshop to run some tests on Yelp as part of a redesign exercise. We specifically chose remote usability tests because they’re pretty quick and fairly affordable to run, compared to focus groups and other lab-based…

    Tom Kenny
    20 May 2015 | 10:45 am
    A designer’s mind can go up and down like a yoyo but the good news is that you can systematically reduce the low points you encounter to help increase your design confidence. A typical web design project can look like this: A typical thought process during a web design project The dotted line indicates the point you ideally don’t want to go below. Think of it as keeping your head above water. I wish the dip didn’t reach the depths it does but unfortunately designers are susceptible to the moments of low work mood which can have a negative affect on ourselves and the quality of our work.

    “I’m not a creative person” is a phrase you’ve probably heard people say before but what they really mean is they don’t practise to be creative. No-one is born “creative”. We all have to work at it. You’re a designer not because design comes naturally but because you sit down everyday and design. The main difference between you and the people who believe they aren’t creative is you practise creativity regularly and they don’t. Inevitably, there will be times for “creative” people when the creativity doesn’t come as easily and the motivation drops. This is where…

  • Modern Touch of Polygon Web Design

    Julia Blake
    22 May 2015 | 8:00 am
    Low poly designs are rather popular today. Polygon mesh, firstly seen in 3D graphics, now appear on various-themed websites and seem to perfectly fit any style. This design perfectly fits the overall trend towards flat style and can be perfectly used in minimalist websites. The term “low poly” is used in technical and visual aspects and refers to the number of polygonal elements in the creation of a certain object. The lower number of geometric shapes create a vivid, sharply textured 3D model. When polygonal design appeared in 2D illustrations and websites it was mostly static. Today we…

    Crafty typography always strikes the eye, especially when it diversifies the website design that, as a rule, is lacking in adornments and ornamental elements. Though the lion's share of artistic typography falls into graphic design (posters, booklets, magazine covers, flyers are highly populated with such kind of type), the web sphere also has something to offer.

The 'less is more' philosophy is a well loved style of design and, in the early days it was a very difficult style of design to achieve, but designers have learned to 'declutter' to the point of it being almost second nature. However, some take it a step further and strip away almost everything from the home/landing page. Here is a selection of some extremely minimal landing pages.

We can’t forget the patriotic nail design ideas! Patriotic nail design ideas can be created with red, white, and blue nail polish. Sometimes, though, other colors can be used. Silver is a…
  • 15 Medium Haircuts for 2015

    CJ Edwards
    22 May 2015 | 10:16 pm
    Medium haircuts are always popular with women, and or good reason! They’re easy to care for, easy to style, comfortable, and versatile. Most medium haircuts fall at around shoulder level, but some may be just above or just below the shoulders. They aren’t too long or too short, so they aren’t as heavy as long haircuts, and there’s still enough hair to pull back. A perfect choice for anyone who wants shorter hair but still wants to rock a spunky ponytail or pretty updo! Medium haircuts also work with just about any face shape and hair type, from thick to thin, curly or…

  • 20 Amazing Ripped Skin Tattoos to Unleash Your Inner Beast

    CJ Edwards
    20 May 2015 | 6:53 pm
    Ripped tattoos are usually created to look like skin is being ripped away from the body through the use of clever lines and shading. Tattoos with ripped skin take a great deal of artistic talent and skill to look realistic. They can be made to look like the skin is simply peeling away from the body or made to look like something is ripping out of the body. Some ripped skin tattoos are also designed to look as though the skin has been cut with a knife. If you’re looking for tattoos to show off the “inner you”, ripped skin tattoos are a good choice. They can give people a…

  • The Unfortunate Thought Process of a Web Design Project

    Tom Kenny
    20 May 2015 | 10:45 am
    A designer’s mind can go up and down like a yoyo but the good news is that you can systematically reduce the low points you encounter to help increase your design confidence. A typical web design project can look like this: A typical thought process during a web design project The dotted line indicates the point you ideally don’t want to go below. Think of it as keeping your head above water. I wish the dip didn’t reach the depths it does but unfortunately designers are susceptible to the moments of low work mood which can have a negative affect on ourselves and the quality of our work.
  • You Have to Wait for a “Lightbulb” Moment and 3 Other Creative Block Myths

    Tom Kenny

    Creative block is an invisible beast, yet it’s always there ready to attack. However, this invisibility has resulted in some confusion. Myths are bound to appear with something as complex as creative block, so let’s have a look at some of them and dispel them once and for all. Myth 1: You have to wait for inspiration or that “lightbulb” moment Many designers spend too much time looking or searching for a moment of inspiration that will give them the spark to start working or create something amazing. Unfortunately this doesn’t really work very well. Hours of your time can be wasted…

    Tom Kenny
    6 May 2015 | 10:46 am
    “I’m not a creative person” is a phrase you’ve probably heard people say before but what they really mean is they don’t practise to be creative. No-one is born “creative”. We all have to work at it. You’re a designer not because design comes naturally but because you sit down everyday and design. The main difference between you and the people who believe they aren’t creative is you practise creativity regularly and they don’t. Inevitably, there will be times for “creative” people when the creativity doesn’t come as easily and the motivation drops. This is where…

    You stare at it and it stares straight back at you. You could never beat it at a staring contest, for it’s the ultimate opponent. Well, it doesn’t have eyes, BUT, you keep staring at it hoping you can still win, waiting for some inspiration. It’s almost laughing at you now. This is getting embarrassing. You’re staring at a blank screen. No, this isn’t the start of a horror movie where your computer is about to come alive and chase you into a dark forest but it’s a very real moment for some designers. In fact, it can often be paralysing. The hardest part sometimes is starting.

  • Pictures Are Without all of the Emotional baggage/stuff/whatever

    David Briard
    23 May 2015 | 10:56 am
    I was looking at pictures on Facebook of people smiling and having fun, a thought occurred to me – they all looked to be living this perfect life and it made me yearn to exist in that sort of persistent state of perfect as well. Then I thought about my own pictures from this past year and I realized they’re the same, this past year is shrouded in a concept of perfectness because of pictures. I guess this is what I find magical about pictures (and websites and music videos etc): the fact that once all is said and done, and the image is taken, all of the rest of everything fades…

    You are now 19. A young adult. It’s time for some well informed advice from a reformed screw-up. 19 is an important age. You’re done with school. You must make plans for what will happens next. More importantly than anything, It’s time to cast off the notions that you are a child and need to be provided for. You need to accept that your previous life as a boy or girl is over – utterly – and move forward with confidence into becoming a self reliant, self aware, world dominating hero. I have no regrets.

    Stop being lazy and get up. A fundamental shift occurred to me once I entered my late 20’s  a few years ago. I took an inventory of my life and realized nothing changed. My business had not improved, I was not making more money, I was not in any better shape (particularly compared to my physical prowess of 19 year old me). I was enjoying life abroad as a web designer until I wasn’t. I had flat lined. Plateaued. My life went from fun and interesting to pathetic, boring and predictable. I spent years working a corporate job in America and the fun and freedom I experienced living…

What Is Delegation?DefinitionThe definition of the delegation pattern is short and simple. This is how Apple defines the pattern.A delegate is an object that acts on behalf of, or in coordination with, another object when that object encounters an event in a program. Let's break that down.

  • Moving WordPress: Moving Your Site From a Subdirectory to the Root Directory

    Rachel McCollin
    22 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    There are times when you need to create a WordPress site in a subdirectory and not the root directory for the domain it's hosted on. I sometimes do this if I'm developing a new WordPress site to replace a static site, and I want to leave the static site in place while giving the client access to the new site during development for approval. Even if you do your development work locally, you may sometimes need to do this.When you come to make the site live, you don't want its URL to be mysite.com/subdirectory—you want it to be mysite.com. So you might think you have to manually move the site…

  • 8 Free Stipple Shading Brushes for Adobe Illustrator

    Chris Spooner
    25 May 2015 | 12:00 am
    I’ve been admiring some beautiful illustrations and examining the techniques the artists use to add details to their work. One popular shading method I’ve noticed is particularly prominent in apparel design and illustrations with a retro vibe is the use of stippling, where fine vector textures are added to build up tones and shade in areas of darkness. After seeing how effective this technique is, I created my own set of Illustrator scatter brushes to provide myself and my readers the tools required to create this effect. Download this free pack of 8 stipple shading brushes to…

  • A Woman’s Inspiration, Beatrice Wood

    cre8pc
    6 May 2015 | 12:09 pm
     I don’t recall where I got the nudge to purchase I Shock Myself: The Autobiography of Beatrice Wood but once starting to read the book, I feel sad I will never know her.   Beatrice Wood lived to be 105 years old. In 1912 she left her luxurious life as the daughter of a wealthy family at the age of 19 to live as a bohemian. Beatrice left New York City for Paris to become an artist.  That same year, my great grandfather brought his wife and two daughters to America from Sweden to start a new life.  The planets must have been screaming for people to make changes that year.
  • Pain-ting With Humans

    22 Apr 2015 | 4:21 pm
     If I was a painter I would dip my brush into every color available to me and wave droplets onto a gigantic blank canvas just to see what the colors decided to go. Because I don’t know where to go and the way I figure it, colors are smart and know where they belong.  They don’t judge or stop to consider. Left alone to drip, smudge and blotch, they just belong where they end up.  Can’t say that about humans. I know a painter who shares his works in progress.  So what we see first is the foundation layer, which is more like a ghostly mist of lines and brush strokes going off into…

When there is loss, like losing something or someone you love, suddenly nothing makes sense, or it never did and this is another wake up call.  To what, I’m not sure.  Worse, is that feeling that nobody gives a damn because really, when you hurt, it’s all your own pain. Nobody can save you.  If they could, we wouldn’t learn anything.  I know…

I was inspired by this when a friend asked on Facebook, “If someone gave you lists of 10 small (but definite) things you could do to help change the world, would you?” The response was to be suspicious of the list. Would such a list try to force someone to change their religion?  Inconvenience them?  Whose viewpoint is represented by the list?  I found this fascinating.  What is it that makes us doubt the intent of a list that is supposed to…

    Almost every web design story has three main actors. Each of them occupies a particular place in the story, and each has different motivations and expectations. These characters are the client, the designer, and the user. There is a particular hierarchy that is supposed to exist between the three; but due to the nature of the process, this hierarchy frequently gets mixed up. The result is a plethora of poorly designed websites that are cluttered with unnecessary extras, which exist because of a power struggle between the client and the designer.

    Usability testing, with real users, is one of the key areas that too many web designers skip. Often, there is little money in the budget for tests, but remote usability testing can be relatively cheap to perform, and the results can make a huge difference to a site’s conversions. To demonstrate the power of usability testing in design, we teamed up with UserTesting and Optimal Workshop to run some tests on Yelp as part of a redesign exercise. We specifically chose remote usability tests because they’re pretty quick and fairly affordable to run, compared to focus groups and other lab-based…

The purpose of Hashtags is to make it easier for people to search and find content based on a keyword or phrase. For example … I’ve been told that tweets with Hastags get double the engagement. And I should have two Hastags per tweet. However on Instagram I’ve been told that I should have 11+…

    14 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    This post was written by Dano Qualls, a Fresh Tilled Soil apprentice. To be successful in any market, a company needs to sell a product or service that people love to use. Great experiences are hard to design, so design consulting has risen up to help. The two major types of design consulting are innovation strategy and product/service design. What these companies do is essential, but how they fit into the big picture isn’t clear without some explanation. The chart below helps break it down, but imperfectly — there is often overlap between categories.    Business Strategy /…

    Christopher Jan Benitez
    18 May 2015 | 5:00 am
    As a developer, it is a necessity to use a front-end framework to manage your CSS and JavaScript when building pages in a website. However, an obstacle you may encounter when doing so is the repetitiveness and time-consuming process involved in updating the framework to its latest version and rolling back to their previous versions when something gets broken. This becomes a big problem when you are managing multiple websites that rely on dependencies to deliver JavaScript and CSS unto a page. This is the reason why Composer exists. This dependency management tool allows you to seamlessly…

    David Catuhe
    29 Apr 2015 | 2:30 pm
    While designing Babylon.js v2.0 (a library for building 3D on the web), I recently found myself wishing that more APIs were fluent – that is, I wish the community could more easily read, understand, and build upon the work while spending less time in the tech docs. In this tutorial, I’ll walk through Fluent APIs – what to consider, how to write them, and cross-browser performance implications. What Makes an API Fluent? A fluent API, as stated by this Wikipedia article, is an implementation of an object-oriented API that aims to provide for more readable code. jQuery, for example, is a…

    13 Mar 2015 | 11:30 am
    There are many ways to build a simple slideshow nowadays. In this screencast I will demonstrate how to do just this using jQuery's fadeIn and fadeOut methods. These methods allow you to conveniently animate an element’s visibility, one of the very reasons I'll use them to build a slideshow. Sure, you could create a slideshow with CSS3, but animating an element’s visibility using JavaScript gives you greater control of its state. Come and watch the video and see which method works best for you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxyfLUx7iBk This screencast is a sample from my course…
  • Animating Text with Blast.js

    Jérémy Heleine
    9 Feb 2015 | 1:00 pm
    Animating an HTML element with CSS or JavaScript nowadays, with the help of libraries, is more or less an easy task. But you can only animate a full existing element. This means if you want to animate a single word in a paragraph, you have to wrap the word in an individual element (like a span) and then target it accordingly. If you have only one or two span elements like this, it is not a big deal, but what if you want to animate each character in a paragraph? For every character, you will have to create a span, which adds a lot of extra markup and makes the text difficult to edit. That’s…

    I’ve recently been talking a lot about website design requirements, proposals, and contracts. I’ve done so because I know a successful website design launch is more than software code, text, and images. Website design success is a direct result of a structured process and solid documentation.

    Have you ever issued a website RFP and received limited responses? Did you wonder what went wrong and why design agencies failed to reply with earnest? You’re not alone. The breakdown in the RFP process can be attributed to both the RFP issuer and the RFP responders. And it is an issue that has been growing for years. On the client side, a lot of companies fail to publish a solid RFP, which makes it difficult for agencies to respond or even take them serious. On the agency side, design firms have grown so jaded about poorly written RFP documents that many won’t even reply. This breakdown…

  • 8 Conversion Rate Optimization Tips for Checkout Pages

    Christian Vasile

    For most of us, the checkout process of a website means nothing more than just something we need to go through in order to buy something online. For e-commerce experts, however, the checkout process (and more importantly, the conversion rate drops) are nightmares that keep them up at night. Improving the conversion rate with a minimal 1% can actually turn out to be a huge increase in income at the end of the month. Optimizing conversion rates is a job of its own. It is very unlikely for a web designer to be an expert at it, considering marketing professionals spend years…

  • 3 key lessons for websites that work

    Emma Grant
    22 May 2015 | 4:45 am
    Almost every web design story has three main actors. Each of them occupies a particular place in the story, and each has different motivations and expectations. These characters are the client, the designer, and the user. There is a particular hierarchy that is supposed to exist between the three; but due to the nature of the process, this hierarchy frequently gets mixed up. The result is a plethora of poorly designed websites that are cluttered with unnecessary extras, which exist because of a power struggle between the client and the designer. What we need, in order to avert this…

    21 May 2015 | 4:45 am
    A lot of designers have wild misconceptions about freelancing and what it’s actually like. Despite what many people think, it’s not all fun and games and working in your PJs. At some point in their career, every designer is going to consider the possibility of going freelance. Before you make that decision, there are a few things you need to get straight… 1) You have total freedom This is a big one. While it may be true that you have the freedom to live where you want, and you can work remotely, there are some restrictions: you have to work where there’s an Internet connection for…
  • How we redesigned Yelp’s UX with remote usability testing

    Jerry Cao
    20 May 2015 | 4:45 am
    Usability testing, with real users, is one of the key areas that too many web designers skip. Often, there is little money in the budget for tests, but remote usability testing can be relatively cheap to perform, and the results can make a huge difference to a site’s conversions. To demonstrate the power of usability testing in design, we teamed up with UserTesting and Optimal Workshop to run some tests on Yelp as part of a redesign exercise. We specifically chose remote usability tests because they’re pretty quick and fairly affordable to run, compared to focus groups and other lab-based…

  • Why Your Website Must Have Proper Page Titles & Descriptions

    Theresa Sheridan
    24 Feb 2015 | 10:26 am
    All too often I will run across websites whose meta page titles and descriptions are completely nondescript. Maybe the actual title on the page reads properly when viewing the site, but because of the various platforms available these days to build websites….and trust me when I tell you they are not all created equally….what a viewer sees at the top of the browser tab is….HOME. More importantly, this is what Google sees also! And this “page title” does nothing to please the Google Gods, and ruins your chances of having decent organic placement in search results.

To us lucky EU members, this rampage was brought to an attempted halt May 2011. The Cookie policy brought in aiming to teach web users what was happening to their online data, what companies were doing with it. Allowing users to opt out of cookie storage.

    You know that feeling when you find unused closet or cabinet space? When storage is a luxury, you feel awash with relief. Finally a place to put that blender hogging precious counter space, or that collection of books on your coffee table. Similarly, when you find out that you can house long-tail keywords in your blog, you may greet the news with delightful relief. Forget about reworking headlines on your homepage—your blog is prime real estate at your disposal. What are long-tail keywords?

Studies show that nearly half your visitors expect your site to load within 2 seconds and that a mere 1-second delay in page response can reduce conversions by 7%. Google engineers have found that even an eyeblink—about 400 milliseconds—is enough to make a difference. Ensure your site is equipped to win users over quickly. To get your website running smoothly and loading fast, consider whether your site has the…

Rising to the top of the SEO heap is seriously competitive business. According to SEO Book, a #5 Google ranking for a keyword can mean 6,000 visitors/month—and 8.5x (about 50,000 visitors/month) for a #1 spot. That can mean revenue, consumer recognition, and more.

    Traffic from mobile devices has been consistently growing over the last few years. It’s a big reason why you should get a mobile solution for your website in place, but now there's an even bigger reason to have a mobile-friendly site. On April 21, Google started using mobile-friendliness as a factor when determining rankings for mobile search results. This means that if someone is searching from their smartphone and your website is not mobile-friendly, your website will be less likely to appear in the search results. In Google’s own words, this update “will have a significant impact…

  • 7 marketing ideas to deepen business relationships

    30 Apr 2015 | 12:32 pm
    Most people say that the best source of business usually comes from existing clients. Either referrals from clients or repeat business. So, there is something to be said for focusing on this. But it can feel awkward asking your clients for referrals. I know we are meant to do it, and “if you don’t ask you don’t get” and many people swear by it. Personally ,I still find it hard. Being in the UK it’s maybe harder for us. However, a proactive approach could generate amazing happenings and opportunities. If you have a client you really love (we have many) there are…

    We have a tradition at TLD to suprise people when it’s not even their birthday anymore. It started years ago when Tamlyn had a surprise party in the office after the boys plotted the surprise on Skype. So we did this for Camille and surpised her with a cake and cards. But then, JP surprised us with a visit. He has been at his new job for a couple of weeks and we miss him terribly. So to celebrate, and also to say hi to Amy, who we also missed terribly, we took some pictures. Enjoy!

Amy lives in Cape Town, and Tamlyn was getting married (to Jack, who is English) in South Africa.

    18 May 2015 | 1:32 am
    As of WordPress version 4.2 WordPress enabled the use of Emojicons in your posts, but in order to do this it will automatically add some javascript to your page. But if you don't use Emojicons then it's adding pointless Javascript to the page which you will never use. If you look inside the file /wp-includes/default-filters.php you will see all the filters and actions that are used to add the emoji code, all you have to do is search for the word emoji in this file to see the instances of these filters and actions. Then you will have to go through each of these and remove them in your own code…

  • Graphic Design Can Make You Hate / Love a Brand: PayPal

    If there’s one thing that can cause a brand to sink or swim it’s the design of its graphics, more specifically the style of a logo. After all, the logo is what you associate with a company since it’s the first thing you see and you want to give an air of professionalism about the brand from this little symbol. Getting the graphic design of a company’s logo right is what can make you love or instantly hate a brand. It’s easy enough to create an instantly dislikeable logo, but it’s rather difficult to come up with recognizable and loved ones, like the McDonalds arches, the red hut…

Clients often use the phrase "make it pop" when a logo or marketing design is close, but not quite at the level of "punch" they are looking for. "Make it pop" generally refers to making a logo or design brighter, larger, more prominent or giving it higher levels of contrast. In short, the client is looking for more impact from the design. While designers know what "making it pop" means, they may not always be sure about the most effective and efficient…

    14 May 2015 | 7:00 am
    This post was written by Dano Qualls, a Fresh Tilled Soil apprentice. To be successful in any market, a company needs to sell a product or service that people love to use. Great experiences are hard to design, so design consulting has risen up to help. The two major types of design consulting are innovation strategy and product/service design. What these companies do is essential, but how they fit into the big picture isn’t clear without some explanation. The chart below helps break it down, but imperfectly — there is often overlap between categories.    Business Strategy /…

    As it turns out, finding contentment is not one of my stronger traits and this is especially evident when it comes to design. There’s always been the excitement when something Michael and I have made is released to the world. That moment is fleeting once we begin to dissect every minute detail in search of opportunities for improvement. Critique is important and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Although, this was quite problematic when I began my career as a print designer and everything that I designed was more permanent. As a web and product designer, I delight in the flexible and…

    During a recent buildout of a Craft website, a client wanted the ability to automatically redirect to an entry’s new URL if (1) its slug has been revised and (2) a visitor landed on the old URL. For example, if an entry started with the URL: http://example.com/first …but its slug was later changed to make it: http://example.com/second …then visiting /first will redirect the user to /second. To do this, we developed a plugin which, on a request that is about to return a 404, will: Query for the most recent revision with the same path prefix and that now defunct slug. Fetch the…

I remember seeing people out at dinner with their BlackBerry clipped all neat and cool to their belt and thinking “I want that!”.

    21 May 2015 | 2:58 am
    This is the second of a two-part series – click here to read part one. Bounce Rates The bounce rate measures how long a visitor might remain on a site for, and as such the higher the bounce rate, the less time a visitor is sticking around. However, it’s worth remembering that these can be higher for a site that has a good blog as often, visitors will only come to read the one page, but Analytics measures this as a visitor that has bounced onto the site and straight back off again, even if the visitor is engaging with content for more than 30 seconds. The bounce rate shouldn’t be…

    This is the first of a two-part series – check back next week to read part two. Once, data was the domain of data scientists and analysts.

    We’ve all heard of them, most of us have got one – but what on Earth is a firewall? Firewalls are an extremely important line of defence from cyber attacks either to your home or business network. If, for some reason, you don’t have a firewall set up, then you should stop what you’re doing right this second, head online and install one immediately – you can continue reading this blog when you’ve finished.

  • Your Website: Time Is Money

    Hawkify Team
    1 May 2015 | 3:23 am
    It’s no secret that these days we expect all of our internet activities to be user-friendly, offer a great user experience (UX), be fun where possible, and of course be super-fast. In fact, super-fast isn’t even enough for some of us. We want super-duper-fast. Warp speed. Like lightning. If a website doesn’t perform at the speed of our expectations, then, quite simply, we click away and head to a rival website in the hope that we can get what we want quicker. KISSmetrics produce a very telling infographic emphasising this point, and it seems pertinent to share it with you here.

    Ogni sito realizzato con wordpress, è costituito da un tema realizzato ad hoc, free o acquistato online, contenuto in una cartella denominata "theme" e che possiede tutti i file, immagini, video e personalizzazioni varie che riguardano il sito. Qualora avessi la necessità di personalizzare alcune funzioni del tuo tema, soprattutto se realizzato da terze parti o acquistato online, dovresti lavorare sui file che costituiscono il tema stesso. In questo caso specifico ti consiglio di creare un tema child piuttosto che modificare direttamente il tema genitore, in quanto qualora in futuro venisse…

    Come amministratore del tuo sito, a partire dalla versione 3.3 di wordpress, hai la facoltà di rimuovere la Barra degli strumenti (Toolbar o Admin Bar) di ciascuno dei tuoi utenti. Come primo metodo puoi utilizzare il pannello di amministrazione, attraverso la voce Profilo (di ciascun utente) puoi togliere il segno di spunta in corrispondenza della voce "Visualizza la Barra strumenti quando si visualizza il sito". Questa procedura è molto comoda e semplice per chi deve gestire pochi utenti registrati, ma qualora sul vostro sito ci fossero un centinaio di utenti, la procedura oltre che lunga…
  • Come disabilitare la rimozione del tag span?

    labdesign80
    27 Mar 2015 | 8:04 am
    In molti temi wordpress ci troviamo a dover risolvere questo problema: il tag span viene rimosso da TinyMCE, ribaltando il codice che abbiamo inserito in modalità "Testo". Per evitare che venga alterato in nostro html, e quindi che non vadano a buon fine le nostre modifiche, occorre integrare una nuova funzione nel tema che stiamo utilizzando. Questo tipo di modifica va apportata al file functions.php Nota: Ovviamente, come sempre, ricordo che apportando modifiche al file functions, in caso di aggiornamenti futuri del tema, la modifica sarà sovrascritta e quindi eliminata.

    Geoff ThompsonMay 19, 2015Content ManagementA Content Management System, or a CMS, is the backbone of almost every dynamically updated website on the internet. CMSs separate your website’s code from its content - meaning your website’s information is handled independent of its structure. CMSs sync a web server to a database, which is where the site’s content lives. Web administrators or content editors can then manipulate website content after logging in through the administration interface. Updating content is as easy as using Microsoft Word to create a document thanks to CMS…

  • Visitor engagement with error pages

    8 Apr 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Broken links are never ideal. But there will be times when your users will click on an out-of-date link or try to type in a url within your site that doesn’t exist. When this type of mistake happens, they will be directed to a 404 error page. You know the ones - they usually say ‘Page not found’ and make you hit your head against the nearest wall. Or click immediately off the site. But not all 404 pages are created equally and if you get it right, what starts off as an error can actually help to engage users with your brand. In this post, we look at a few approaches that can…

  • What Is The Purpose Of Your Website?

    Dave Edwards
    11 May 2015 | 3:34 am
    What is the purpose of your website? It may seem like an incredibly simple question – and one you’d assume every business and web designer would know the answer to. Yet, in most sectors, there seems to be a dearth of websites that are actually effective at answering this question. Indeed, given a healthy budget, some web designers appear to believe that a new project is a chance to satisfy creative urges and add a new, trendy design to a diverse, expanding portfolio. But it’s an approach that fails small businesses. Because the first consideration when designing any…

It’s not.” – Seth Godin When building your business and brand, it’s incredibly tempting to choose, as Seth Godin puts it, to “create average products for average people.” There are many reasons why people fall into this trap.

And perhaps the strategy that divides opinion more than any other is AdWords. Indeed, I’ve lost count of the amount of times it has been dismissed as a complete waste of money. Yet, pay per click advertising can almost always generate enough relevant traffic for your business and there is usually great intent behind the searches.
