  • Card Expansion Effect with SVG clipPath

    Codrops
    Claudio Calautti
    18 Jun 2015 | 3:39 am
    View demo Download source Today we are going to create a experimental grid layout with “cards” where we’ll animate the card expansion with a morphing effect on the cover image and follow its motion with a delightful animation of a low-poly pattern used as the background of the page. We are using Trianglify by Quinn Rohlf to generate the background pattern, SVG’s clipPath to morph the card image, and GSAP to animate and control the whole sequence. We could have used the CSS clip-path property to clip and morph the image but since the support is currently quite limited…
  • What Do You Think of Facebook's New Logo?

    Creative Market / Feed
    1 Jul 2015 | 9:00 am
    Do you know how many people are on Facebook? According to their statistics page, there are 1.44 billion monthly active users as of March 31, 2015. That means that there's a metric ton of people who are affected when Facebook decides to make a change to their branding, like they did just yesterday. And the results? Well here you go:   Image via Web Designer Depot Now at first, I got it, but I didn't see why it was so polarizing. The logo lost a little weight, but got curvier at the same time. Isn't that what we all want out of life? I do. Seriously, the main changes come into play with…

  • Working with Shapes in Web Design

    1 Jul 2015 | 8:55 am
    When we make a new component on a website, we’re effectively creating rectangles of different sizes, whether we realise it or not. But what happens if we want to experiment a little? How many different ways are there to make shapes? In this post I want to roughly outline some of the most common ways to make circles, triangles, and polygons, as well jot down the advantages and disadvantages for these methods so we can experiment with those that might be a little unfamiliar to us. Here are some of the ways in which you can make a shape on the web: border-radius border rotating shapes with…

  • Design Principles: Compositional Balance, Symmetry And Asymmetry

    Steven Bradley
    29 Jun 2015 | 2:00 am
    A balanced composition feels right. It feels stable and aesthetically pleasing. While some of its elements might be focal points and attract your eye, no one area of the composition draws your eye so much that you can’t see the other areas. Balancing a composition1 involves arranging both positive elements and negative space in such a way that no one area of the design overpowers other areas. Everything works together and fits together in a seamless whole. The individual parts contribute to their sum but don’t try to become the sum. An unbalanced composition can lead to tension. When a…
  • Rapid Front-End Prototyping With WordPress

    Daniel Pataki
    26 Jun 2015 | 6:26 am
    Prototyping is one of the best things that can happen within a project, yet it is extremely underutilized. Prototyping makes a project better suited to users, elevates user experience, increases the quality of your final code, and keeps clients happy. The problem is that developers often see prototyping as a waste of time, since high-quality prototypes take considerable effort to make. I want to show you that by using WordPress, highly interactive prototypes with great visuals are not at all that difficult to make. 1 (Image credit: Jeff Sheldon via Unsplash2) (View large version3) First,…
  • Efficient Image Resizing With ImageMagick

    Dave Newton
    25 Jun 2015 | 5:11 am
    Responsive1 images2 have been keeping us on our toes for quite some time, and now that they are getting traction in browsers, they come with a scary problem: the need to efficiently resize all our image assets. The way responsive images work is that an appropriately sized image is sent to each user — small versions for users on small screens, big versions for users on big screens. It’s fantastic for web performance, but we have to face the grim reality that serving different sizes of images to different users means that we first need to create all of those different files, and that…
  • Effective Logo Design, Part 3: How Geometry Influences Logo Design

    Maggie Macnab
    23 Jun 2015 | 6:23 am
    Galileo knew it. Every ancient culture that left traces of knowledge in their art knew it. Basic shapes compose the fundamental geometry of the universe. We can take credit for a lot of things, but human beings did not invent geometric shapes. We discovered them through the observation of nature1. Understanding basic shapes and their functions have taught us to mark time and space in a variety of ways inspiring mathematics, technology, language and ever-evolving civilization. “The universe cannot be read until we learn the language in which it is written. It is written in mathematics, and…

    30 Jun 2015 | 7:00 am
    We’re a perseverant crew, the RICG. Responsive images were dead and buried forever in particularly dramatic fashion—what—two, three times there? “Dead and buried forever” refused to stick, though, thanks to all of you. Every time responsive images were knocked down, they got up a little stronger than before. It isn’t hard to see why the going was so tough. Changing up a feature as old—and in software terms, as stable—as the img element was no small request. But designers and developers had spoken: we wanted a feature that stood to save our users a tremendous amount of…

Make sure you remember where your project falls in your organization or client’s entire content universe. Your project’s place in the organization’s content universe affects what you’re able to control or influence. It also is affected by the formal and informal strategies guiding content efforts throughout the organization. Content strategy for an entire organization and across all channels is super complex and very steeped in…

  • Rian van der Merwe on A View from a Different Valley: Unsuck the Enterprise

    25 Jun 2015 | 5:29 am
    There’s something strangely appealing about trying to make enterprise software not universally despised. I guess I believe in a utopian vision where enterprise software is useful, usable, and (gasp!) enjoyable. But until we get there, I think we can all agree that enterprise software mostly still sucks. And I think it sucks mainly for two reasons: A lack of empathy for end users. Too much legacy. The lack of empathy issue is an understandable outcome of the process. See, we have this piece of software that we sell to company leaders, who care about things like control, configurability,…

    Website designs with fixed width centered layouts are like a blast from the past that remind us of those good old days when a majority of web sites were based on the formerly popular 960px grid system – center-aligned and with distinctive borders. With the increasing popularity of wide screens, designers began to opt in favor of full-screen layouts that gave the content more dominant positions. Image and video backgrounds became the main visual driving force that seized the whole attention. However, some time later, when smaller screens of tablets and cell phones began to call the tune,…

    The SVG format provides various options for realizing complex graphical content. Among other things, you can create textures and add them to shapes using the <pattern> element. Especially when using simple and common textures, the effort marking them up via SVG is, compared to the result, unreasonably high. Hence, the JavaScript library Texture.js provides such textures that mostly consist of lines and dots for SVG elements. With only a few lines of JavaScript, you can apply different textures to each shape of an SVG. Textures.js is Based on D3.js Textures.js is based on the JavaScript…

    Jeffrey Zeldman
    23 Jun 2015 | 12:44 pm
    HE DESIGNED the lettering on The New York Public Library and the James Farley Post Office (“neither snow nor rain…”), created titles for silent movies, movie posters, and pulp magazines in the 1920s, and started working for DC Comics in 1938, where he designed the masthead for Action Comics, refined the Superman logo, and brought dozens of DC Comics texts and titles to life. A new exhibit at The Type Directors Club honors Ira Schnapp and sheds light on his decades of influential work.
  • Daybreak in Myanmar: Photos by Geoffrey Hiller

    Jeffrey Zeldman
    23 Jun 2015 | 12:26 pm
    Myanmar in Southeast Asia is one of the least known places in the world, due to the military dictatorship that has isolated the country for the past sixty years. Now that the government is making the transition to democracy, the veil is slowly lifting, as are travel and economic sanctions. In Daybreak in Myanmar these images of a place once frozen in time are unique and timely. Photographer Geoffrey Hiller has been documenting the people of Burma since 1987 and has returned several times since the historic opening in 2011 to capture evidence of change, not only images of rallies for Aung San…

    Khoi
    28 Jun 2015 | 1:53 pm
    Self-taught artist Raphaël Vicenzi has produced an impressive body of illustration work, frequently for the fashion industry, but I’m partial to the mixed media collages he creates for himself. They’re chaotic yet elegant, favor a black and white color palette, and can be highly abstract, though they rarely lose sight of a figurative center entirely.…

  • ★ Unfinished Business 112 ‘Meaty Parts’ with House Of Fools’ Ellie White

    Andy Clarke
    1 Jul 2015 | 3:00 am
    I want Unfinished Business to be, above all, entertaining and it makes me incredibly happy when entertainers take time to talk to me. This week, and after literally months of trying to set this up, my very special guest on Unfinished Business episode 112 is, actor, comedian, star of Vic and Bob’s ‘House Of Fools,’ Ellie White. Ellie and I talk about her Fringe and what it’s like to get a big break on a show like ‘House Of Fools.’ We discuss improv, stand-up performances and comedy clubs and whether she should watch ‘Carry On’ films.

    Apologies in advance if you’re German or a Turk, as this week on episode 111 of Unfinished Business, I’m joined by artist Brendan Dawes and designer Aaron Draplin. We start by talking about spice jars and car boot (garage) sales, but unsurprisingly our conversation soon veers wildly off topic as we discuss how Aaron’s struggling to keep up with demands on his time, how designers can make money selling merchandise and more, much, much more. If you know either Aaron or Brendan, you’ll also know that you’re in for a fast-paced, fun-filled sixty minutes. I’d…

    This week at Smashing Conference in New York, I had the very great pleasure of meeting Chris Lilley. I recognised Chris’ name, but it took me a day to remember that he had been the chairman of the ‘Style and Formatting Properties Working Group’ at the W3C, a precursor to the CSS Working Group. Chris is a hugely important person in the history of the web.Today I’m visiting Jeffrey at his studio and he has a copy of my first book, Transcending CSS (2005), on his shelf. On page 10 I found that I’d quoted Chris, from May 1994, when he had written: “If style sheets…

    When we were in Australia earlier this year, we stopped in Sydney to speak at John Allsopp’s Respond Conference and to teach a workshop. A few weeks before those events, John emailed me: The folks at SydCSS are fantastic supporters of our events, and last year we did a couple of shared events with them. I’ve dobbed you and I to do a short presentation (it will be the night of Respond.) Well, OK. Who am I to argue? So on March 19th, John and I took to the stage at a nearby university to give short talks to an assembled group of almost 200 Sydney-based developers at the SydCSS…

    Last week was Jeffrey Zeldman’s website’s 20th birthday, so this week he joins me and Jeremy Keith on Unfinished Business 110 to talk about the anniversary. We start by discussing Jeremy’s 100 words for 100 days writing project and how it’s inspired me to change the way that I think about writing on our blog and posting to our portfolio. We talk about the importance of writing for yourself as well as for others and why writing on your own website is important.

    This article was contributed by Preston Pierce.  What happens when your client decides to create a single page website and ask you to optimize it rather than going with the usual multiple-page architecture? Well, you find yourself in a predicament! It is because if you are not that well-versed with single-page web optimization, you’re sure to end up plucking your hair out of frustration. After all, one-page websites have always been the victim of non-paginated structures, content relevancy and whatnot! Hence, due to the unfamiliarity with the optimization of such website, people preferred…

    Moving Brands’ recent identity work for the BBC included an appropriately animated wordmark for BBC Newsbeat, the national broadcaster’s news service aimed at 16-24yr olds. “The wordmark is designed to react to the beat; when a user hits pre-programmed points within the site, a beat sequence animation is triggered in the mark. The grid system is built to replicate a simple music time signature — all elements of the grid are divisible by four, with content landing on or off the beat.” The “beat sequence” didn’t come to mind before or after I read the above quote.

    The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) governs tennis in Great Britain, the Channel Islands, and the Isle of Man. London-based BEAR were briefed to rebrand the LTA’s Major Events — a series of four international grass court tennis tournaments that take place in the run up to Wimbledon. “We took the essence of ‘explosive summer tennis’ and brought it to life, with the help of a little liquid nitrogen. British blooms were frozen and shot whilst we captured the footage in super fast exposures. Composed against spectacular shots of star players in action, the campaign brought real energy to…
  • Oculus redesign

    For those who don’t know, Oculus is a technology company currently developing a virtual reality head-mounted display called the Rift. The company was acquired by Facebook in 2014 for $2B USD, and a consumer version of the Rift is due for launch in early 2016. The company’s logo was recently changed, and the result is what I hope I’d come up with if I was responsible. It’s as simple as they come, yet with a distinctive, appropriate idea — the stylised ‘o’ also working as a stylised headset. The shape of the slider on the underside mimics the symbol…

    Bloc Logos is a publishing project devoted to graphic signs and logotypes designed in communist Poland (1950-1991). “We are a group of enthusiasts digging for old logotypes from the times of the Iron Curtain. Our aim is for people to get to know the works of graphic designers from the communist Poland. A large part of their work has never been published in such form and remains unknown to this day, with many of the companies and institutions using these graphic signs ceasing to exist nearly 30 years ago.” Polton is a music record label, established in Poland in 1983.

    When we make a new component on a website, we’re effectively creating rectangles of different sizes, whether we realise it or not. But what happens if we want to experiment a little?

  • Container Queries: Once More Unto the Breach

    Chris Coyier
    1 Jul 2015 | 7:01 am
    I guess the plan is to stop with the "element queries" and start thinking and referring to them as "container queries". We've been following this saga for a while. Element queries have a serious pitfall: infinite loops. .our-element:media(min-width: 500px) { width: 499px; } As Responsive Issues Community Group member Mat Marquis puts it: Well, since the query no longer matches, the new width is no longer applied. Since that new width is never applied, the element query would match again, so the new width would be applied, so the query would no longer match, so the new width wouldn’t be…

    For a primer on this, check out the post The Debate Around "Do We Even Need CSS Anymore?". That post is intended to present the idea of styling a website through inline styles as applied through JavaScript, as a way to help with some of the perceived problems in CSS. There are, of course, points to be made and opinions on both sides. I'm going to close the comments here so the conversation can be focused there. This new poll focuses on that debate.

    I’m fed up. Maybe I’m just getting old and crochety, but I’ve had it up to here with people not understanding the value in web marketing. After 20 years of educating clients, followers and readers alike, you would think that people would begin to realize that web marketing is no more about search engine rankings than advertising is about getting featured on Oprah. Sure, it’s a nice bonus (and boost!) to the business, but that’s just a reward for a job well done, not the end-goal. But instead of talking about all the reasons why there is no such thing as a #1 ranking anymore…

    Carrie Cousins

    What makes something on a screen or canvas feel real? The answer is simple. It’s human connection. People want to interact with and use designed elements that work in the physical world in a way that mimics reality. It’s the case study for human-centered design and why it matters so much in every project every design takes on. This human connection is more than physical, it also creates an emotional bond between the user and the design. That’s where you begin to create things like loyalty to a brand and a connection to users that goes beyond the screen. Here are a few ways you can use…

    Too many in digital fail because they give up too early. It’s understandable when the journey feels never-ending and the goal always out of reach. To succeed we need to learn to enjoy the journey. I often find myself providing mentorship in online sales and marketing. Whether it is a web design agency, freelancer, not-for-profit or corporate client they all want the same thing. They want to promote themselves and close deals. Yet as diverse as the organisations and people I work with are, they almost always fall down in the same thing. They give up too soon. Sales needs dogged determination…

This perception problem for designers is made even more challenging when you consider web design projects and the typical role that designers play in those projects. Traditionally,…

  • A Simple Guide on How SVGs Work

    Paula Borowska
    1 Jun 2015 | 6:47 am
    SVG, or Scalable Vector Graphic, is an image file format that is growing in popularity. They are actually a simple text file that holds coordinates which map out shapes and, therefore, make an image. The text file is read by the browser which then renders and creates the graphic for you. The S in the acronym implies that the image is resizable – scalable – meaning that the proportions of the image will stay the same making the shapes perfectly clear no matter how zoomed in or out it is. This means that the image is always crisp and preserved. A Little Back Story on SVGs People…

  • A Look at Some CSS Methodologies

    Jacob Gube
    22 Jun 2015 | 4:00 am
    CSS is notoriously difficult to manage in large, complex, rapidly-iterated systems. One reason is CSS lacks a built-in scoping mechanism. Everything in CSS is global. That means any change you make has the potential to cascade and alter the presentation of unrelated bits of the UI. Extended CSS languages, a.k.a. CSS preprocessors, such as Sass, Less and Stylus make things a little easier by offering up features that make writing CSS easier. But even these extended CSS languages, in my opinion, don’t truly fix the scalability issue. Until CSS gets its own native scoping mechanism, we…

  • Facebook reveals new logo

    Benjie Moss
    1 Jul 2015 | 7:15 am
    Yesterday, Christophe Tauziet, a product designer at Facebook, shared a shot of the new Facebook logo. Reportedly designed by Facebook’s in-house team in collaboration with Eric Olson — the designer of Klavika, on which the original Facebook logo was based — the general reaction has so far been negative. Some commenters have suggested that the logo is so bad, that it may simply be a hoax. Others have suggested that Facebook is mimicking Yahoo! in gauging public opinion before announcing a decision.

However, all the advice I’ve heard and read is that creativity flows more freely in the morning so instead of thinking “that’s nice but I hate waking up early”, I decided to test it for myself, thinking it I was just fine watching the clock tick into the early hours of the morning.

    25 Jun 2015 | 8:59 am
    Irrespective of whether you are working on a small-sized, medium-size or a large project, coding issues tend to creep up if they aren't addressed properly. Selector Specificity is one such issue that haunts developers, especially the ones working on large-size websites. As your website becomes bigger in size, it is important that the CSS selectors must become shorter. If not, this could result in making the specificity higher, which causes self-induced specificity issues. In order to overcome such issues, you need to make the selectors more specific.

    Bright red hair color is colorful, trendy, and bold look. It’s not for the faint of heart, though, as it’s not an ordinary color.

    Peach is somewhere between nude and orange, and it isn’t one of the more common colors used in nail art. Peach nails, however, can be very pretty! Nearly everyone can wear peach, from those with fair complexions to those with darker olive toned complexions. It’s a flattering and feminine color, but it’s not as girly as pink. Peach nail art can be created with a wide range of other colors, but some just look better than others. For instance, give peach nails a try with silver, gold, mint, and light blue. Of course, white and black, the two most popular neutral nail art…
  • 14 Adorable Hair Bow Hairstyles for Long Hair

    Hair bow hairstyles were made popular by Lady Gaga a few years back. Instead of a traditional fabric hair bow, hair bow hairstyles utilize a person’s own long hair to create ta bow shape. Although they aren’t your typical everyday hairstyles, they’re a nice unique and fun addition to your hairstyle rotation. These hairstyles are super cute and feminine, and can be used for formal styles or casual styles. Generally, because of the amount of hair needed to make the bows, hair bow hairstyles are best for ladies with long hair. Women with medium length hair, though, can also try…

    Baking cookies is so much fun! You don’t need a special occasion to make cookies for dinner but if you want the occasion to be extra special maybe some of these out-of-the-ordinary baking stamps may be of some help.

    The Internet is a connected network of billions of devices and people, and has no single central governing body to control what goes on in this vast network. But it does have a few organizations that help it operate smoothly, for instance ICANN, which is the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers. The non-profit is basically the reason we know who or where we are on the Internet – it puts everyone in their "place", so to speak. In this infographic by WhoIsHostingThis?, we take a look at ICANN and 5 other organizations, (most of which you probably don’t know)…

  • 15 WordPress Plugins to Supercharge Search Function

    One important element of any website is the search feature. With this, people can find for what they’re really looking for through your site, instead of just getting the information from the links you gave them, such as category, tags, featured post, etc. If your website is on WordPress, the search feature already exists by default. But it is still too stiff to use and not flexible enough to customize. One available option you can use to improve the search feature on your site is by using plugins. These 15 plugins will help you make your searches on your site easier and faster to run.

These days, kids not only ask the questions adults don’t dare to ask or think about asking, they also get their hands dirty, getting help to where it is most needed.

    Good artists copy; great artists steal. This quote has been tossed around creative circles for decades and does shed light onto a small fragment of truth, especially among visual artists. The way to master digital design is to take ideas and learn how they were constructed. Smartphone & tablet applications are small but detailed. To successfully design mobile apps you need to understand textures, shapes, typography, icon design, and color matching. This may seem impossible but if you study other designers you’ll naturally pick up their ideas for yourself. The following examples are…

It typically adds a new grid line every X number of pixels based on the website’s line height. As you can imagine, this would be exhausting to manually create by hand.

    Two weeks ago, I wrote a post focussing on the question of the type of content of cornerstone articles. I concluded with the notion that  cornerstone content should be informative, fun to read and extremely well written. Cornerstone articles should reflect your business or the mission of your business. Once you have written such awesome content, you would like search engines to notice these pages. You should thus make sure your internal linking structure shows Google that your cornerstone page is most important. But how do you do that? How do you make sure your cornerstone pages actually…

There are also some nice new features in Google Trends, possible labels for slow loading sites and some more annoying news about Bing and keywords. A Google update It wasn’t Panda, it wasn’t Penguin, though both are still “to come”, but this week we had an update that gave several people in the SEO industry a shudder.

Take the time to think through your site map (the core structure of your website pages and pathways) before you build anything. This strategic process is especially important if your firm is dedicated to many areas of law.

    The title says it all really. Today is my birthday and I’m 29 years old. I’ve never really been one for birthdays, in fact I can’t remember the last time I actually did anything major to celebrate one of mine. As I’ve got older it seems the people who I care about most want to make a far greater deal out of it than I do, which is nice I guess. Anyway my 28th year on plant Earth has been rather eventful, I got married, 5or6 expanded, I started Cake and Switch the Play, and I’m in the middle of buying a new house. So I’ve had fun.

Not only do you have to work with clients who may/may not fully understand the importance of great design, but you also have to work on things that, to some clients, just aren’t that important. Perhaps the most obvious example of this is typography. Typography can make or break a design, yet it’s something that is often overlooked in terms of its importance by most clients. No matter whether you’re designing a simple printed banner, a website, or even an entire brand, the typographic pairing used needs to not only look great, but also…

    You may have a streamlined marketing campaign for enhancing the sales of your online business or eCommerce website, but boosting the conversions should take precedence over everything else. After all, it determines the success of your online store and thereby, of your business. One of the crucial elements that boosts conversions for an eCommerce website is the check-out page. If the payment process is flawed (time-consuming or not secure), then customers tend to move on to your rival website. The solution to increase your sales is by making your check-out process page as simple as you can.

    There is no shortage of CPM networks out there. How to pick just one? For the most part, you can just pick one out of a hat as, in my experience, they’re all equally useless. Fly by night CPM networks, put together with no history or experience with marketing or eCommerce. Adsnik changed my opinion about that. Over the course of my professional blogging career, I’ve tried out numerous CPM and Affiliate networks, towards the goal of making the passive income that people working online need to survive. Adsnik was the first CPM network to actually give me hope that this was possible, and…

    [Contributing Author:  Madhu Majari] We are currently working on the certification of SHA-2 with the Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) delivered with Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3.  As described in this blog article, a reverse proxy or load balancer can be used until that certification is available.  You can use a reverse proxy or load balancer as the end-point for the encrypted connection that is initiated by a client (for example, a browser).

    15 Jun 2015 | 9:50 pm
    I’ve been doing a lot of reading recently on what makes a good brand. I’m not just talking about coming up with a catchy name off the cuff. More so about coming up with a single name that can work both online and offline and across all media types within those outlets. Coming up with a business name is easy. Coming up with one that is memorable, available to register domain wise (.co.uk/.com) and also having the ability to acquire social handles such as fb.com/brand/ or @brand on Twitter is extremely challenging. Virtually impossible almost unless you’re prepared to open your wallet but…

    Fundraising for charity is a worthwhile philanthropic activity. Some people organize long distance bikes rides for their chosen charity; others prefer to hold community events and encourage everyone around them to get involved. There really is no limit to the things you can do to raise money for a good cause, but if you (or the people around you) have artistic leanings, it makes sense to use your designs in your fundraising venture. So what are the options? Calendars Calendars are a very popular way of raising money for charity. Charities large and small produce calendars to sell to their…

  • What Being Responsive Really Means

    Amber Weinberg
    8 Jun 2015 | 1:00 am
    When a new client asks for a responsive site, I always ask them what they mean by “responsive”. Many are still unsure of what this means, and often end up quoting back a lot of industry buzzwords they’ve heard a long the way, usually to do with some kind of framework or jQuery plugin. What a lot of clients don’t realize is that they often need something much smaller. I’ve noticed that a lot of the big name developers and designers in our industry often talk about the best case scenario of a website: a website that’s built from the ground up, uses responsive…
  • Using JS to Hide Site Until Loaded

    Amber Weinberg
    4 Jun 2015 | 1:00 pm
    I recently needed to hide the entire site until everything was loaded and ready, due to using a scroll loading script, which was making the content flash before it was ready to fire. I made a super easy way to do this, using CSS opacity, a tiny bit of JS and a non-JS fallback for usability. In your CSS: body { opacity 0 }   body.all-loaded { opacity 1 } At the top of your JS: $(window).load(function() { $("body").addClass('all-loaded'); }); In your HTML (in the head tag): <noscript> <style> body { opacity: 1; } </style> </noscript>…
  • Using Ems In Media Queries For Proportional Layouts

    Amber Weinberg
    25 May 2015 | 11:20 am
    I admit that I’ve never been a fan of ems, and have avoided using them for as long as possible. However after an interesting conversation with a Twitter friend of mine, Matt Hill, he convinced me to try using not only ems for font sizes, but for media queries as well. It took a bit of back and forth before I could actually understand both the purpose of this and how it actually worked. I’ve always used pixels for media queries, and inserted a new MQ every time the layout of the site began to break down or become uncomfortable to use or read (which means my sites have always been…

    This is a common question from the uninitiated. A photovoltaic (or PV System) is an installation of solar panels that can be used to provide electricity and if you generate more energy than it needs, can be fed back to the network. Domestic photovoltaic systems have two main options installations. Existing properties tend to opt for a mounting system “roof”, where the panels are sitting slightly above the roof surface.

Some commenters have suggested that the logo is so bad, that it may simply be a hoax. Others have suggested that Facebook is mimicking Yahoo! in gauging public opinion before announcing a decision.

    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.

By de-centralising school improvement and putting it in the hands of the people who do the job, day in and day out, it…

Each year a favorite font appears in design networks and flashes in all the projects on sites like Behance and Dribbble. At first it was Gotham, then Proxima and Avenir, and now we’ve returned to Futura. But there is no need to fear of this cyclicality.

    Oliver McGough

    Experiences. We encounter them constantly throughout our daily ride through life. The commute to & from work; client meetings; dinner with friends. Each is an experience of its own – each with its own start and end point, each with its own journey. Afterwards, we reflect upon each activity – we understand what we liked and didn’t like – we understand how that experience left us feeling. The peculiar thing about these experiences is that subsequent feeling isn’t always easy to break down. Exactly why did we enjoy dinner last night? On the whole, it was a great experience –…

With competitor’s sites just a click away, the pressure is on for companies to offer the best experience possible. In the ecommerce industry, the pace of evolution is accelerating fastest.

    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?

    Lightning quick sites are vital to online success—and impact your bottom line. After all, when people bounce (aka leave your site), you likely lose a customer or transaction. 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.

    Here is a quick CSS snippet on how you can use Sass maps to create a colour list for your project. Sass maps are a nice way of creating lists, you can do multiple things with lists you can either loop through all of them or you pick a specific element from the list. If you've used other programming languages before a Sass map is essential an array of key value pairs. $map: (key1: value1, key2: value2, key3: value3); This gives us a nice way of having a collection of the different colours we want on the entire website and then we can create a Sass function to get access to these colours.

That seems like a strange observation in a field where designers are replacing their pencils for styli. It is true that the world of graphics design is radically different on a superficial level. But once you scratch beneath the surface, you will find the real tools of the trade to be remarkably unchanged: Sketchpads Trade a pencil for a stylus, and you are still holding a long, narrow, likely cylindrical tool for drawing sketches on some type of pad.

  • Is Infinite Scroll BAD Design?

    arkain283
    30 Jun 2015 | 11:15 am
    The format of infinite scrolling I find for the majority of websites to be nothing less than annoying. It’s as equally as user disruptive as those top ten list website that aggressivly implement pagination as a content barrier; requiring a visitor to click from numbered item to numbered item with the goal to increase page views for advertisement purposes; instead of just simply listing out the “top 10 most expensive cities in the United States” or whatever the topic may be. So let’s (not) get to the bottom of this. Pun intended. YOU WILL LEARN TODAY: The advantages of…
  • Shared Hosting: Your Introduction To Web Hosting

    arkain283
    27 May 2015 | 5:21 am
    SHARED HOSTING Cheap affordable (and reliable) hosting. Perfect for someone starting out, or someone wanting to build a few new websites. Shared hosting means that you share your hosting with hundreds of other websites on ONE server. The costs are low because multiple accounts are on one machine and the performance is limited. No worries though, shared hosting is perfect and reliable if you’re launching a new website. You have low amounts of traffic so it makes no sense to spend money on resources you’re not going to use. Also, you can always scale up as your website grows. For a…
  • When You Should Get a VPS Virtual Private Server

    arkain283
    27 May 2015 | 5:18 am
    VIRTUAL PRIVATE SERVER A virtual private server (VPS) is like shared hosting but on a much bigger scale. Instead of sharing a server with hundreds other websites like you do on a shared account, your website and your hosting account is but one of maybe 4-6 other hosting accounts on a server. Because of this, you get greater resources to your websites, you’re able to handle larger amounts of traffic, and you have more account control on the back end. A VPS is the middle ground when you need more resources than the highest level shared account, but not quite the resources (and the cost)…
  • Reseller Hosting: Start Your Own Web Hosting Company!

    arkain283
    27 May 2015 | 5:10 am
    RESELLER HOSTING Reseller hosting is a bit more expensive than shared hosting, and usually the same price or a bit cheaper than a virtual private server. The main difference between this level of hosting and a virtual private server is that it’s intended for you to resell the hosting under your own company. You read that right. You, right now can start your very own web hosting company. All you need to do is signup as a reseller and set up a website to promote the parent company. Then, you need to charge slightly higher prices than what the parent company charges. This difference is…
  • Dedicated Server: An Elegant Overview of Pros and Cons

    arkain283
    27 May 2015 | 5:01 am
    DEDICATED SERVERS A dedicated server is simply a large, powerful computer you can rent from a web hosting company. It’s ideal if you have a high traffic website or websites (millions of visitors a month with a tremendous amount of bandwidth usage). Is a dedicated server right for you when starting out? NO WAY. PROS A dedicated server is the most expensive and powerful level of hosting for all but the most popular of websites. You get 100% of the resources dedicated to only you. You have nearly complete control of your server. It’s your machine and you can do whatever you want.

    A badly designed website can do your business more harm than good. There is a lot of difference between merely existing and standing out.

Impatient Internet users hardly like to stick around on a badly designed website for more than a few seconds, so why not put in some effort and make amends to your site to make it look and feel great.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same–or so it seems, at least in the graphics design trade. I know. That seems like a strange observation in a field where designers are replacing their pencils for styli. It is true that the world of graphics design is radically different on a superficial level. But once you scratch beneath the surface, you will find the real tools of the trade to be remarkably unchanged: Sketchpads Trade a pencil for a stylus, and you are still holding a long, narrow, likely cylindrical tool for drawing sketches on some type of pad.

Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and at times InDesign were my tools of choice, simply because that is what I was taught to use in school.

Dissimilar to the paid advertisements that show up in Google’s indexed lists, tapping on the buy button is not going to divert customers to a retailer’s site to finish the buy but instead it is going to divert the user to a web page of Google where he/she can redo their requests and delivery options. The items will be sold by the retailers not by Google. Also,…

    Pressing buttons is fun. Hitting the stop button on a bus, clanking the keys on a typewriter or pushing the button for every floor in an elevator – there’s something strangely satisfying about it. It’s like popping bubble wrap or scratching an itch and we humans are compelled to do it. A recent April Fool’s prank / experiment on reddit.com involved a very ‘clickable’ button next to a 60 second count-down timer. The idea being every time someone clicks the button, the timer resets to 60. This experiment has been running for almost a month now, the button has been clicked almost…
