The studio partnered with Getty Images’ iStock to create a series of free, downloadable images in the grand tradition of cheesy, painfully bad stock photography. Frankly,…

    Slowly but surely, the official app stores of iTunes, Google Play and Windows Phone Marketplace have transformed into a digital battlefield. App developers have to fight for recognition or otherwise be drowned in an ocean of competing mobile applications. App store optimization (ASO), a strategy similar to SEO but specifically applied to the app pages in app stores, has become a handy addition to an app developer’s marketing plan, and promises to help increase visibility – and, as a consequence, downloads – of a mobile app. ASO consists of many elements, and should be considered a key…
  • Harnessing Flexbox For Today’s Web Apps

    Although the syntax might be initially confounding, flexbox1 lives up to its name. It creates intelligent boxes that are stretchable, squeezable and capable of changing visual order. It provides simple solutions to layout paradigms that CSS has always struggled with: vertical centering and equal heights. Flex items are truly accommodating and a pleasure to work with. Chris Coyier sums up flexbox2 nicely: The Flexbox Layout (Flexible Box) module (currently a W3C Last Call Working Draft) aims at providing a more efficient way to lay out, align and distribute space among items in a container,…

    Has a client ever asked you to make the logo bigger1? Maybe they asked that just after you completed their request to make a heading bigger. The new heading stands out, but now the logo is too small in comparison and isn’t getting noticed. The clients wants to make the logo bigger. Of course, now that the logo and heading are bigger, both are going to attract more attention than the main call-to-action button, which will need to be made bigger. And once the button is bigger, the heading is going to start looking small again. You can’t emphasize everything. It defeats the point. When you…

You settle down to watch, eyes narrowed with suspicion, thinking, “I better see some squid or I’m writing an angry letter to the network.” Sure enough, 90 minutes of interviews with bored-looking fishermen later, the presenter is forced to conclude, “No… no, we didn’t find any big squids.

    I grew up in Columbia, Maryland, a planned community (see Figure 5.1). And as with the word “governance,” people tend to react to the phrase “planned community” in a not-so-positive way. “Planned” sounds dull and uncreative to people: cookie-cutter homes, on cookie-cutter lots, on cookie-cutter streets—“Little Houses Made of Ticky Tacky,” to invoke Malvina Reynolds’ well-known song. And Columbia was all about that: a city built quickly based on a template. There were street naming conventions, standard model homes, standardized lot sizes, and a standard “village”…

    Andreas Hecht
    4 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
       Developing WordPress themes on your own is a great thing to do. I remember well how I worked on my first theme, and how much fun it was. Though afterwards, I was in a cold sweat, doing much reworking and bugfixing in order to make it through WordPress´s theme testing procedures. After all, I was very keen to present it to the whole world. Being kind of clueless about WordPress in general back then, all the little helpers out there were unbeknownst to me – helpers that make the work of developers so much easier. To spare you this kind of hardship, I have come up with a list…

    Andreas Hecht
    3 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
       Only a couple of years ago, there was talk about email marketing’s heyday already being over. The rise of social media and mobile devices, the thinking went, would spell the end for email marketing since communicating via emails would become rare. But, as the saying goes, the report of the death of email marketing was an exaggeration – today, it is still one of the most important and most popular communication tools out there. Even in the age of „WhatsApp“ email stays one of the most used instruments.

  • Next Generation CSS Layout With Rachel Andrew

    Jeffrey Zeldman
    5 Feb 2015 | 11:17 am
    SINCE the early days of the web, designers have been trying to lay out web pages using grid systems. Likewise, almost every CSS framework attempts to implement some kind of grid system, using floats and often leaning on preprocessors. The CSS Grid Layout module brings us a native CSS Grid system for the first time—a grid system that does not rely on document source order, and can create complex layouts which are easily redefined with media queries. In Rachel Andrews’s “CSS Grid Layout” session at An Event Apart Boston 2015, by following along with practical examples, you’ll learn…

    A little later than advertised (and by “a little” I actually mean a week) I’m joined on Unfinished Business. Episode 102 by Rachel Andrew and Zoe Mickley Gillenwater. Despite being two experts on bleeding edge CSS layout modules, they don’t talk about CSS (much.) Instead we talk about how to keep doing when keeping going is hard and what gives us that motivation. We also discuss making big decisions including when we might want to take, or leave, a job.

This means that I care a lot about my computer, phone and the sleeves I keep them safe in. I also care about the pen I write with and most recently about the mug I drink from every day.These days I don’t travel as much as I used to. Most weeks include just a fifteen minute drive to work and an occasional train ride to Manchester or London, so while the Bodum vacuum travel mug is, as its name implies, a mug to take traveling, I like mine so much I use it all day, every day,…

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:45 am
    I learned something the other day when we were fleshing out the background properties in the Almanac. It's such an intuitive thing, that I guess I just never stopped to think about it before. By default, background-position is 0 0, the top left corner. Now imagine you set it to 50% 0. That background image is now center top. It figures out the size of that image, and positions the center of it at the center of the element. That's different than if you, say, had an <img> and positioned it at left: 50%; in that scenario, the left edge of the image would be at the halfway point. If you…

For instance, paying unbelievable monthly fees for simple things like email and calendars when they could be using better and comparatively free Google services (we yell, while nobody listens).

I know that I love working in HTML, SVG, and CSS, so when Nick shares that we can use that for structure and use the data directly to style a chart, that appeals to me. And then to know that, because you're using Angular, the chart can automatically change when the data changes... that's just dang cool. As soon as I began playing around with AngularJS it struck me that its ability to grab data and use it directly in markup could offer a real quick and simple way to create data visualizations. In…
  • Dropdown Menus with More Forgiving Mouse Movement Paths

    Chris Coyier
    23 Feb 2015 | 2:24 pm
    This is a fairly old UX concept that I haven't heard talked about in a while, but is still relevant in the case of multi-level dropdown menus. A fine-grained pointer like a mouse sometimes has to travel through pretty narrow corridors to accurately get where it needs to in a dropdown menu. It's easy to screw up (have the mouse pointer leave the path) and be penalized by having it close up on you. Perhaps we can make that less frustrating. You can get to the menu item you want, but there are some narrow passages along the way. Many dropdowns are designed such that when the right area isn't in…

    Jim Connolly
    4 Mar 2015 | 6:05 am
    Today, I’m going to show you how to protect your business, so that it will still thrive, even if you lose your biggest customer. I need to start by asking you a question. It’s an important question, so take some time to consider your answer: In financial terms, what would happen if you lost your biggest customer or client? Many small business owners are heavily reliant on just 1 or 2 main customers. These major customers often account for a hefty percentage of their income. When [not if] the customer leaves or ceases trading, the vendor is left in an extremely precarious position. Despite…

  • Create an Appealing and Visually Connected Tagline

    Stoney deGeyter
    17 Dec 2014 | 6:08 am
    Great taglines are short, memorable, and visually connected to your logo. Think about it, when you hear “just do it”, do you think of the Nike swoosh? Or when you hear someone say “eat fresh” you think of Subway! That’s because these companies have done a great job integrating their taglines with their logos. You may not be a billion dollar company like Nike or Subway, but that’s no reason why you can’t come up with a great tagline and incorporate that into your logo. Your tagline should be a short phrase that sums up what you do and what makes your company great. It needs…

    Email marketing is one of the most popular ways to reach an audience. Wait, that’s probably not new information. But did you know what a majority of those views will be on a mobile device? So if you are not designing your emails for phones, this is the day to start. Designing a mobile email takes planning and thought.

    Everyone has been fired from a job. It’s shocking, depressing and degrading but everyone goes through it. As business author, Harvey McKay pointed out in one of his books, “before you fire someone, ask yourself if you want that person working for your competitor.” When I was let go from a large greeting card company, the exit interview included ten minutes of why the company had to let me go and fifty minutes of the HR person explaining why I wouldn’t want to go to work for their competitor. Eventually I did go to work for their competitor and, as I explained to the HR person,…

    I must admit up front that I never hopped on board the Tumblr train during its meteoric rise these past few years. 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.

My first true experience with Android was earlier this year on KitKat 4.4. The OS was nice, and not too jarring of a change from iOS 7 (at the time), but several quirks in the software made it impossible for me to fully abandon the Apple ecosystem. This month’s release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, however, feels like it could be the tipping point. There are a lot of really amazing features that Android brings to the table…

  • 4 Reasons Why Everyone Should Know the Basics of Programming

    Paula Borowska
    4 Mar 2015 | 4:04 am
    There are a lot of opinions out there as to why designers should or shouldn’t learn how to code. I beg to extend that question and argue that everyone should know at least the basics of programing. My definition of basic is HTML and CSS. I suppose I could summarize this whole post with one single and short reason as to why everyone should code: knowing how to code empowers you. But that’s such a simple statement and it isn’t enough so let’s explore the four different reasons why everyone should know the basics of programming. 1.

  • Inspirational Sidebars in Web Design

    Carol Francis
    29 Jan 2015 | 6:27 am
    Navigation has always been, and will always be one of the most important aspects of web design. Until fairly recently, the standard was to have a top, side or bottom navigation bar or a mixture of two or even all three. Nowadays designers are becoming much more creative with navigation, in particular, sidebars. Of course, not all sidebars are given over to navigation, and not every sidebar in our selection is used for navigation, but the majority are. This round-up brings you a collection of inspirational sidebars in web design, some of which are not necessarily ‘different’, but…
  • Measuring Usability with System Usability Scale (SUS)

    Armen Ghazarian
    26 Jan 2015 | 7:08 am
    There is no doubt about the importance of measuring and tracking user experience. Depending on the specifications of a digital product, different sets of performance metrics may be used to evaluate the user experience, such as time on task, success rate and error rate, conversion rate and issue-based metrics. These metrics are based on quantitative data collected during user testing sessions or contextual interviews, at the very least using product analytics data. But not all user data comes in numbers. In fact the most valuable information obtained during user interviews is not at all…

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

As a leader of a company that sells themes, calculating the potential profitability of a single WordPress theme is absolutely critical to building a business around them. There are other factors, such as determining the size of a potential market for niche themes and understanding the needs of the consumer, but for now, I’d like to break down the expenses and…

  • Web Design Trend Showcase: Super Gradients

    Chris Spooner
    23 Feb 2015 | 12:30 am
    After the dominance of flat colours in web design I’ve noticed a new trend of gradient use beginning to emerge. Gradients are nothing new in web design, but the CSS property of linear-gradient now allows designers to add vibrant spectrums of colour directly to their code, rather than the traditional method of creating a gradient image in Photoshop. One advantage of the CSS approach is the gradient can be scaled to any size, which makes it great for screen filling gradient backgrounds. Today’s showcase features 25 examples of these super gradients used as backgrounds, headers and…

    Universal Windows apps enable you to target every Windows device in one solution. You develop once, share most of your code, and deploy on Windows, Windows Phone, or Xbox.The goal is to maximize the reuse of code. You can share code, user controls, styles, strings, and other assets between the Windows Phone and Windows 8 projects in Visual Studio.

    When it comes to design, photography is a fundamental tool that every design puts to work at some point. What I want to dissect here is not the trends in actual photography, but rather trends in the way photographs are used and manipulated in web design. Some of these trends are obvious and well known, others are frequently used and seldom discussed. I have found that when many trends on the same topic are collected into one set we find that we have stronger opinions than expected on the topic. Also, it seems that when we see trends like this compared to each other we discover that the…

I mentioned in my previous article to be open to the influence of certain colors. Part of the reason these colors have the effect they do is because they’re constantly used for the same things: blue for trust, red for urgency, black for luxury, and other meanings. Can you really expect color to work the same way for the same types of brands every time you use them? No. You can’t. Here’s how you can go against the norm and shake up your…

You are hired to design a website for a client, only to realize that the majority of the budget for that project (as much as 70%) will have to go to a developer, who will take your carefully crafted designs and hand code the web pages for this new website. Not only does this process take the bulk of the budget away from you, it also takes the majority of the control away from you, if you want to focus on design and not on code! Oftentimes, important visual aspects of your design are lost in…

    The beginning of each year is marked by intense discussions about future web design trends: everyone shares its assumptions. It has become a tradition, so the time has come to put our 2 cents in. We have compiled a list of 10 predictions that in our opinion will turn out to be correct to a varying degree. We have excluded flat style and responsiveness because of their obviousness. The first one has got an enormous stimulus from material design, and the second one, well, it is hard to name a trend actually, nowadays it is a must-have requirement. Also, we do not include ghost buttons since…

    Virgin America’s new homepage When Virgin America’s flight booking site redesign was first launched, I remember many designers praising it and rightly so; it’s great design. Booking a plane ticket online can be a fairly complicated process, so when a company attempts to simplify the process, it draws attention. It’s very similar to Avis Car Hire in that respect, the subject of the very first Learn from Great Design study here on Inspect Element.

My first tutorial used Illustrator’s Blend tool to draw a series of concentric lines. It worked pretty well, but I went on to develop a technique that would help create more detailed and repeatable patterns, which I used to create that freebie pack. I never explained those new techniques in a tutorial, so that’s the topic for today! Follow this how-to guide to learn how to create a detailed topographic map effect, then…

    Introduction to Flash Animation Now, I only know a handful of the multiple software programs that Adobe has to offer, but, in my opinion, Flash is one of the more difficult to learn. Jumping into a project with Flash takes a lot of time and effort, so I want to go over the absolute basics with you.

    3 Mar 2015 | 11:10 am
     It took the threat of moving my son’s Cheerios to finally uncover the reasons why I wasn’t coping well with his being at Marines boot camp. My sister was the first to realize I was troubled.  Not that my husband didn’t know, or me, but I couldn’t articulate what was bothering me and he is not a mind reader.  I would scold myself every day for being silly.  I’ve had years to get used to the idea that my son wanted, more than anything, to be a United States Marine.  He had years to train me. I’m very close to my son and daughter.  Their happiness…
  • Fear, Anger and Hatred: A Day in a Life on Facebook

     Every day, about 20 times per day, I tell myself I HAVE to quit Facebook.  My husband did that awhile ago and thinks I’m crazy to still use it. I tell myself I “need” it for the work I do.  Somewhere in that statement is an opportunity for a therapist to fix me. I was perfectly fine before Facebook. The Internet. Email.  TV news reporters paid to scare the hell out of millions of people.  I read books and cooked pasta with the phone receiver in one ear and the long telephone cord wrapped about my body.  Before that, I spent hours inside a library, or riding a…

I won’t justify the article with a link to it.  It is written by a woman referring to herself as a Christian who wrote a blog post about her choice to not wear leggings thanks to her naughty husband after he admitted he looks at other women who wear leggings.  Somehow they got noticed and the couple were asked to appear on a major USA  morning T.V. show.

     My first gut reaction when I see someone called a “Rockstar” in the online marketing and web design industries is to move on to something of substance. I realize that most successful online marketers have egos the size of Mount Everest and prefer to associate with members of their own kind.  Not belonging to their club has been one of my weaknesses. In fact, my independence and not wanting to be part of a visible club has made me do odd things that make me cringe to this day, like the time at a conference where I begged someone I knew, kind of, to hang out with me because I…

The other night at about 3am I distinctly heard my son call out, “Mom!” as if he was in his bedroom right down the hallway.  For the next 10 minutes I analyzed the tone of his voice.  Was it fear?  Was he ordering me to stop worrying about him?  Is he awake?  Did I dream it?  It felt good to hear his voice, regardless. I still haven’t slept an entire night since my Marine recruit left for 13 weeks of basic training.  Every night is the same, no matter…

Upfront is a new approach to WordPress, three years in the making, and its developers, WPMU Dev, think it’s the future of the eternally-popular CMS platform. Upfront is, technically a WordPress theme, in the same way that a T-Rex is technically a lizard.

  • 6 essential website photography trends for 2015

    When it comes to design, photography is a fundamental tool that every design puts to work at some point. What I want to dissect here is not the trends in actual photography, but rather trends in the way photographs are used and manipulated in web design. Some of these trends are obvious and well known, others are frequently used and seldom discussed. I have found that when many trends on the same topic are collected into one set we find that we have stronger opinions than expected on the topic. Also, it seems that when we see trends like this compared to each other we discover that the…

So we thought it was time to do a series about Bing Webmaster Tools as well. Bing isn’t that big in The Netherlands, or Europe, for that matter, but it still holds some ground in the US.

  • Use hreflang for multilingual websites

    Michiel Heijmans
    25 Feb 2015 | 6:35 am
    The hreflang tag is used to tell Google and other search engines the language used on a specific page on your website. Search engines use the hreflang tag to ‘redirect’ the visitor to the page in the right language. Hreflang is also referred to as rel="alternate" hreflang="x". When I was discussing post subjects with our site review team, Annelieke pointed out that hreflang was mentioned on our website, but that we never did an article about it. Perhaps that is because for most sites, hreflang isn’t a ranking related issue. For the larger sites it could be, by the way. In…

    Have you read my post on image SEO? On that post, I got this comment from Jerry, a professional photographer: In galleries, do you have any suggestions about what the ALT text should look like? The main concern is that we don’t want to be perceived as keyword spamming; using the same keyword in all the images of a given gallery. That’s a good question about photography SEO. When thinking about the optimization of photo galleries for Google, I could actually only come up with one main comment: write more text to accompany these photos.

    2 Mar 2015 | 12:04 am
    “Anyone with an internet connection and an idea can develop an audience.” These words were spoken by actor Kevin Spacey at last year’s Content Marketing World to 2,600 marketing professionals and, to put it simply, he’s right. But marketing isn’t just about building an audience, it’s about building the right audience. A lot of time and money is wasted when trying to sell a service or product to the wrong individual. Instead, you need to create a strategic marketing plan to delves into who your target audience is and how you can reach it. Let’s break down how you can target the…

    Offering managed IT services or implementing VOIP may not seem like the most thrilling service offerings. And some people go so far as thinking these offerings are downright boring (gasp!). Never forget, though, that your services are very much needed. And just because IT stereotypically may not be the sexiest industry, there are plenty of ways to step up your game when it comes to showing off your brand. The first impression people have of your business is often your website. So, it’s time to make it more fab than drab. Here are four small ways you can add big personality to your IT site:…

    Engaging presentations with effective visuals can be key when trying to capture your audience’s attention. Each day we’re constantly bombarded with information and if you’re anything like me, my attention span seems to be thinning day by day. We’ve all sat through someone’s presentation slide after slide trying our best to ignore the text message that just popped up or the Facebook notification that just came in on our iPhone. So, if you’re looking to put together an exciting presentation that will actually keep your audience’s attention, your first thought might not want to…
  • When Custom Development is the Right Business Solution

    18 Feb 2015 | 6:50 am
    One thing I’ve learned over the years in marketing is that if you’re not challenging yourself to come up with new ideas, your efforts will eventually plateau. A robust amount of leads won’t just magically come in each month when you put your marketing on autopilot. But maybe your company is set with its services and products. Then what? Well, it’s time to get creative. Offer these services and products in a new way. You can sell the same thing for years as long as you adapt the way you’re selling it. To do so, many are turning to custom development, like apps and microsites or…

    It is a common knowledge that Linux is great server. There are even some network administrators that use Linux together with Samba so as to come up with file servers which can be accessed by Windows workstations just the same way they would Windows NT/2000 file servers. But if you also want your Linux to serve as a print server, it is possible. The best way so far, although obviously not the easiest, involves using the Linux print utilities.

It was a lot of fun.

    Being a designer you can never be certain of anything you build, like science, good design is built on uncertainty. Society perceives a lack of confidence in ones own work as a sign of weakness or questioning a tried and tested theory as unthinkable, yet in reality without questioning what has already been discovered or your own work we would still be in the stone age. People accepted that the Earth was the centre of the Universe for hundreds of years until some chap called Galileo came along and challenge it, Ethan Marcotte questioned the idea of a fixed width websites and responsive web…

    “Ryan, you’re an idiot” – is a greeting I’ve become accustom to from my Dad. We have that kind of stupid name calling relationship we should have grown out of a long time ago, but we just can’t let go. We are both idiots. Yet when I told him about my daily routine and considering the amount I swear, it was something I definitely couldn’t put down on paper. I think he even made up some words, I can’t be sure. Then I explained my reasoning behind it and his reply was simple and to the point – “well, whatever makes you happy”.

    Ryan
    8 Jan 2015 | 12:41 pm
    When I tell people what I do everyday in my routine I often get odd looks. “You get up when?” is something I hear pretty often, along with “Do you do that everyday?” People find my routine odd, or at least slightly out of the ordinary, I don’t but I guess that’s why it’s my routine. So in the interest of science (what science I’m not sure, but I have an insatiable desire to understand and measure everything) I thought it would be good to put down on paper what I do, how I do it all and why I do it, just in case it might help someone out.

  • A Primer to Scalable Vector Graphics: Advantages, Benefits, Resources, and More!

    Christopher Jan Benitez
    2 Mar 2015 | 5:00 am
    Scalable vector graphics (SVG for short) let designers create high-quality images using  XML by describing two-dimensional graphics. Users associated graphic files with JPEG and GIF. But the advantage that SVG has over these most popular graphic file extensions is that it retains its quality when zoomed in or out using your desktops or tablets. As a result, SVG prints in higher resolution and is easier to compress compared to other file types. More importantly, unlike any other image file, SVG can be edited using Notepad since it is made using XML. History SVG has been around as early as…

Any UI designer should be more than willing to jump onto the path of icon design. Although it is jarring and difficult, consistent icon design greatly improves the value of any interface. The road to creating uniform icons is paved with sweat and tears. Maybe some blood if you pound the keyboard hard enough.

  • 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…

    Filtering and sorting parts of your website is a great way to organize it. Portfolios, albums, and blogs are just a few examples of things you might want to categorize.

In this article, I’ll go over the basic features of MixItUp and show you all the steps needed to take advantage of it in your projects.

    On the Masonry website, we read that Masonry is … a JavaScript grid layout library.

Bootstrap is one of the most widely adopted open source front-end frameworks. Include Bootstrap in your project, and you’ll be able to whip up responsive web pages in no time. If you tried using Masonry together with the Tabs widget, one of the many JavaScript components Bootstrap has to offer, chances are you’ve stumbled on some kind of annoying behavior. I did, and this…

This article was a quick overview of how these design elements will negatively affect SEO within a website. The article seemed to lie under the radar and most people missed it. It’s so far under the radar, I haven’t heard much about it since I read the post in November. I decided this topic needed further discussion because a lot of designers and website owners are using WordPress accordion and tabbed content plugins without knowing the negative affect it has on…

  • The Costs of Being a Freelancer

    Amber Weinberg
    20 Feb 2015 | 9:10 am
    When I left full-time employment to become a freelancer over five years ago, I never imagined how wonderful it would be. With freelancing comes a lot of freedom and a much bigger paycheck than I could ever make with a full-time job. I also save a lot of money by not having to drive my car every day or eat out for lunch. However with that freedom also came a lot of costs and expenses I never anticipated, and not all of them monetary. Here are a few things you’ll have to consider when deciding whether to make that leap or not. Monetary Costs The biggest costs will be monetary. There are a…

While I try not to jump on bandwagons or use the latest ‘techniques’ or plugins, of course it’s necessary to constantly both keep up with what’s new in our industry, as well as to try and improve our code. I’ve been coding since the six grade (that’s 14 years ago!), so I tend to have most of what I do down to a solid science. Therefor, I can spend my time, not in learning new code, but in learning optimization and organization. The biggest teacher for me this year has been…

Both Paul Boag and Andrew Clarke have talked frequently about their fights with depression. I’ve always found it interesting that our industry seems to have a huge concentration of people with mental health issues. I wonder if it’s because we don’t have to interact as much with people (face to face) as other industries? Because we can…

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

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

    Jose Bernabe, an multi-talented artist and designer based in Amsterdam, created this fresh and unconventional font called Chemical Cloud, which strongly speaks of his adventurous attitude to art, as well as his keen understanding of spatial and graphic elements. For this design, he combined a black bold sans serif font with clouds, accented with bright color gradients, using Photoshop brush tools. The overall result is one that’s completely unexpected, providing a bright and whimsical yet urban look to this typography. You can explore more of his works in his official website.

    Dutch designer Christian Boer has designed a font that’s specially made for people with dyslexia. Such a brilliant idea, and it’s about time someone did this.

    Whoever you are, however you use it, if you’re building websites with WordPress then you need to take a look at Upfront. Upfront is a new approach to WordPress, three years in the making, and its developers, WPMU Dev, think it’s the future of the eternally-popular CMS platform. Upfront is, technically a WordPress theme, in the same way that a T-Rex is technically a lizard. In reality it’s a whole lot more than that: Upfront allows you to customize your site — not just the content, the design too — without ever logging into the WordPress dashboard.

  • 6 essential website photography trends for 2015

    Patrick McNeil
    2 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
    When it comes to design, photography is a fundamental tool that every design puts to work at some point. What I want to dissect here is not the trends in actual photography, but rather trends in the way photographs are used and manipulated in web design. Some of these trends are obvious and well known, others are frequently used and seldom discussed. I have found that when many trends on the same topic are collected into one set we find that we have stronger opinions than expected on the topic. Also, it seems that when we see trends like this compared to each other we discover that the…

    If you’re a website owner and you’ve never heard of a “robots.txt” file, you’re not alone. A robots.txt file is a text file that gives instructions about your website to web robots (does the term “Googlebot” sound familiar?), officially called The Robots Exclusion Protocol. When a web robot first visits your site and attempts to crawl it and index your pages, it will look for this file for instructions first. If there are pages, files or folders that you don’t want crawled and returned in search result, you would list them in your robots.txt…

If your website slows them down and gets in their way, they’ll be off to your competitor’s site faster than you can say Bill Gates. Studies show that most users will leave a site if it hasn’t loaded in 4 seconds, which means you don’t have a lot of time to grab their attention and convince them to hang around for a while longer.

  • The Death of Web Design

    Oliver McGough
    29 Jan 2015 | 9:25 am
    Medium, Shopify, Behance. What do they all have in common? High-quality website templates. No longer does an innovative idea require the web design skills to match; all manner of websites now exist, allowing you to implement that idea without the efforts of an experienced (expensive) web designer. This is perhaps the greatest web design shift of the past 3 years. By using these templates, we can piggyback on other people’s design skills; usability research, and experience. When creating our own digital home, we needn’t reinvent the wheel. We can borrow someone else’s innovation, saving…

    17 Feb 2015 | 2:00 am
    One thing I have been experimenting with recently is adding namespacing and autoloaders to new WordPress plugins. What Are PHP Namespaces PHP namespaces was introduced in version 5.3. Namespaces is a way of grouping classes together into virtual directories, the main reason we would want to do this is to help avoid collision of class names in your application. In PHP you can not define two classes with the same name, if you do this PHP will display a fatal error in your application. Using namespaces means that you can define two classes with the same name as long as they are in different…

    You might wonder if that’s really possible. A website that’s simple AND stunning at the same time? The answer is yes, if you use the right tools and methods.

  • 3 Ways a Creative Logo Design can Affect Your Brand

    Editorial Staff
    13 Feb 2015 | 11:00 pm
    Believe it or not, there’s a difference between a company and a brand. One can be controlled, the other can’t; one has a marketing budget, the other is the marketing budget; one has to be sold, the other sells itself. According to Chron, a company markets or produces goods, products and services, while a brand is the “personality” by which the company is perceived by the consumers. Marketing specialists can make a difference in human perception, but nobody can completely control a brand once it comes to life through your customers—this makes the aspects you can control more…

    4 Mar 2015 | 3:00 am
    Algorithmic typography, also known as “parametric typography,” is a fascinating thing. At a glance, however, it can be hard to tell what it even is. After all, modern typography is already made with computer programs. Not to mention all the algorithm-based tools designed to make the typographers' jobs easier. The Golden Ratio Calculator, for example, uses one to generate the optimum number of characters per line for any given block of text.

    Tallinn, Estonia AD Angels Reval Chocolate “When our client approached us with a plan to create a new truffle brand, we quickly saw that the competition in the sweets/truffle market is quite fierce and most of the brands carry the same attributes – classic, sophisticated, fancy and even somewhat old-school. So Reval Chocolate represents an über-contemporary take on classic chocolate – new truffles for the modern man. A sweet mouthful much like life itself – full of different flavors, aromas and emotions.”

    I’ve written several articles now on solar energy. I’ve written about how homes can be turned into lean, mean, energy producing and saving machines. It’s an exciting thought that, as utilities prices keep rising, our energy could become renewable and free. The question is: what do you do when there isn’t enough solar power saved? Thanks to some Ohio scientists, we may have an answer for that. (Check it out here) In the past, if people wanted to save solar energy for use later, they had to invest in very expensive solar batteries. There needed to be an apparatus to save energy, but the…

Check it out!), History Channel shows, Museums, and sitting there while I pour over history books in a store. So, it’s no surprise that I freaked out (only a little!) when I saw this article on a Siberian Princess. Princess Ukok was found on a high plateau back in 1993. I know what you’re thinking, “ 93? That’s not recent news or even a new discovery!” Bear with me here. She was found in the early 90’s as the best-preserved body of her…

    There are all kinds of sayings about Mother Nature. I’ve seen an overabundance of bumper stickers, reusable grocery bags, pins, window banners, tv ads, and magazine prints touting the need for respecting nature. While I totally agree with this (I mean, what’s the point of purposefully ruining the place you live?), I think the true strength and power of Earth has not really been acknowledged. I mean, we all are aware of the power of a hurricane or the terror of an earthquake. That’s not the power I’m talking about. The power we should really be focusing on is the regenerative strengths…

I’ve prayed to the tech gods to spare my phone and then reach out to pick it up almost like it’s a snake about to bite, too scared to see the damage. It doesn’t have to be like this! Our nice and expensive smart phones shouldn’t be so fragile, right? I’m of the mindset that the phone looks better with out covers, thus leaving my phone susceptible to imminent danger.
