    27 Aug 2015 | 11:36 am
    Single-page websites gradually fill the internet space. It is the recently emerged trend that becomes more and more prominent these days. Originally designed for online portfolios, the usage of one-page designs rose sharply from commercial and social advertising to narrowly focused businesses and services. So what is the secret of such a rapidly growing popularity? This new format in website building allows website owners to test their audiences, in attempt to find out their preferences and improve user experience. Having a website, you should realize that it is made not just for you. Your…

  • How We Designed And Built Our First Apple Watch App

    27 Aug 2015 | 5:25 am
      One sunny morning in the summer of 2014, I was sitting in a café having just finished an hour-long call with my remote team. Scheduling that call had been a messy exercise: we live in different time zones and it was hard to find a time that worked for everyone. I wanted to make dealing with time zone differences less painful. I had some free time on my hands, so I pulled my notebook out and started playing around with an iWatch app idea. Yeah, you read that right — 2014 and iWatch, before a watch had ever been announced.The post How We Designed And Built Our First Apple…

    Christian Holst
    25 Aug 2015 | 3:57 am
      The responsive design revolution is truly upon us (if it hasn’t already happened!), and even though e-commerce websites haven’t picked up responsive design quite as aggressively as in other industries, it’s becoming increasingly popular. So far, most of the responsive design thinking has revolved around covering the range of experiences from mobile to desktop. Yet little attention has been paid to the opportunities for expanding that range beyond the standard desktop screen, to create an experience optimized for modern large-scale displays.The post Responsive Upscaling:…

      Last year I read Jan Constantin’s post “Typographic Design Patterns and Current Practices” and straightaway wanted to do something similar with email. At the time I was studying responsive typography on the web, trying to break down the websites I liked in order to understand what made the typography work so well, then attempting to apply those findings to email design. After seeing Constantin’s work, I also wanted to explore how other email designers were handling responsive typography.

  • Nishant Kothary on the Human Web: “Buy Him A Coffee”

    27 Aug 2015 | 5:30 am
    My first job out of college was as a program manager. Program Manager is one of those job titles that sounds important because it implies that there exists a Program, and you have been anointed to Manage it. Who doesn’t want to be boss! As with all impressive-sounding things, program management job descriptions are littered with laughable bullets like: • Must be proficient at influencing others without authority. Which may as well be written as: • Life is. Or: • Thing is Thing. Pretty much every freshman PM ignores that qualification, and interviewers rarely test for it. We take for…

  • Thinking Responsively: A Framework for Future Learning

    25 Aug 2015 | 7:00 am
    Before the arrival of smartphones and tablets, many of us took a position of blissful ignorance. Believing we could tame the web’s inherent unpredictability, we prescribed requirements for access, prioritizing our own needs above those of users. As our prescriptions grew ever more detailed, responsive web design signaled a way out. Beyond offering a means of building device-agnostic layouts, RWD initiated a period of reappraisal; not since the adoption of web standards has our industry seen such radical realignment of thought and practice. In the five years since Ethan Marcotte’s article…
  • Multimodal Perception: When Multitasking Works

    25 Aug 2015 | 7:00 am
    Word on the street is that multitasking is impossible. The negative press may have started with HCI pioneer Clifford Nass, who published studies showing that people who identify as multitaskers are worse at context switching, worse at filtering out extraneous information, worse at remembering things over the short term, and have worse emotional development than unitaskers. With so much critical attention given to multitasking, it’s easy to forget that there are things our brains can do simultaneously. We’re quite good at multimodal communication: communication that engages multiple…

  • How to Remove Lines From a Drawing: Convert a Drawing Into a Digital Painting

    Monika Zagrobelna
    28 Aug 2015 | 3:07 am
    What You'll Be CreatingTraditional painting by default is not very precise. The brushes are made for creating big patches of colors that may become details when observed from a distance. When you try to paint at a smaller scale using a tiny brush, it turns into a drawing. In digital painting the border between drawing and painting is quite blurred. In the end it boils down to one difference: if you're trying to control the stroke, you're drawing; if you want the stroke to be free and expressive, you're painting.The problem occurs when you want to be expressive with your strokes and make them…

    A week later than planned (sorry,) on this week’s Unfinished Business, I’m joined by returning special guest, designer Dan Edwards. And because you wait all day and then two Dans come along at once, joining us is creative director, founder and director of the SuperFriendly agency in Philadelphia, Daniel (the Dan) Mall. We talk about plans for the next Geek Mental Help week in October first. Then, because I’m currently deep into a redesign of Stuff & Nonsense, why working on your own site always feel harder than working on a client sites. We discuss using our portfolios…

    I’ve been looking forward to speaking with Cennydd Bowles for months and for Unfinished Business 113, Cennydd joins me and my other special guest, product designer Noah Stokes. We kick off by talking about Richard Rutter’s web typography book, but soon the conversation switches to whether, and why, current web designs are lacking ‘soul.’ This is something Noah and I have been speaking and writing over recent months and something that I partly blame on our fixation with user-experience and product design. Does Cennydd agree? You‘ll have to listen to the show to…

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…

    The mid 2000s were a crazy exciting time to be a hobby programmer. We’d suffered through a decade or so of trials to test our merit — The ASP/PHP Wars, The Trouble of Tables, DHTML, WAC-FR & sIFR, and of course — IE 5.5 for Mac. But things were finally looking up. We had a free database that was easy to administer, hosting was becoming affordable, broadband was becoming the norm in middle-class households, browsers could render CSS half-competently, web frameworks were becoming accessible to novices, and best of all, we could finally use transparent PNGs. The web was coming of…

    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. This is a vision of life that begins with self and ends with self. But people on the road to…

    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 PSDtoWP.net Perhaps it would be best to start here with the why. About a quarter of all websites run on WordPress, the online blogging platform. This makes it by far one of the most popular open source content management systems on the planet. The vast majority of web designers still use Photoshop to design a website, although there are alternatives. This means that a lot of website designers need to find ways on how to convert PSD files to a responsive WordPress theme! Now, this might seem fairly straightforward.

It’s not something to be feared – rather, something that affords you the opportunity to rethink your concept and the direction you’re pursuing. “Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things a different way.” - Edward de Bono, author, inventor, physician, psychologist When you find yourself stuck with creative block, here are a few things you can try to reboot your thinking so you can move forward.

Being a web designer it is incumbent on me to clear all the doubts. Due to the similarity between these terms, a lot of people are getting confused and are unable to understand their intricacies. In fact, people believe UI and UX to be same terms with two different names. But in reality, both these terminologies vary drastically – be it in terms of their meaning or technicalities.

    I’ve only ever watched one baseball game — sat in the bleachers at PNC Park to see a Pittsburgh no-hitter — so it’s fair to say it’s not my thing. Still, I found this GIF for the evolution of MLB logos interesting. A few inaccuracies were mentioned in the comment thread on Yahoo Sports, but on the whole it seems well pieced together. What stood out the most was the widespread use of mascots between the 1950s and 70s, tying in with the prevalence of mascots in a lot of product branding at the time. Those logos definitely had more character than many of today’s marks (no pun…

    Moccato is “a coffee club for hardcore coffee lovers.” The company sells tiny coffee pods filled with fresh coffee from local producers. The pods are compatible with Nespresso machines. The challenge for the designers at Plau in Rio de Janeiro was, “How do we convey apparently clashing concepts — natural yet instant, sustainable yet urban — and change the way people consume coffee through branding, packaging and e-commerce?” Their answer was a custom stencil wordmark (and typeface), a re-interpretation of something traditional within the coffee industry (as seen on the sacks and…

Peter Murdoch and I said hello to him, he looked around and said “we are farther ahead than you”, and walked out.

  • Rolling Stones Hot Lips

    David Airey
    26 Jul 2015 | 6:54 am
    At the conclusion of the Rolling Stones’ ZIP Code tour, Robert Klara from Adweek asked me how the famous “Tongue and Lips” emblem has become as iconic as it has, and why it’s lasted so long. Original design by John Pasche Any design that achieves iconic status can only do so on the back of an iconic product. The fact that the Rolling Stones are one of the most recognisable rock bands on the planet helps. Beyond that, if a good logo is going to endure it needs to be appropriate, and the sexiness associated with red lips is fitting for legends of rock ‘n’ roll. Read…

You likely know that if there is an "index.html" file in a directory on a server, it's like to serve that file if the URL matches that directory.

    Designers, by nature, are problem-solvers. Every project is a problem or challenge that involves helping other people understand something.

They tend to be more streamlined with a focus on point of contact, not showcase of professional accomplishment.

    Color is one of the most significant elements of any design. It creates emotion, guides us through an interface, and reinforces a brand. It’s rare that you find a truly black and white design, more often monochrome designs are dark gray, or off-white. But the effect is the same. Color is literally how we see the world — different light particles being absorbed, or emitted, give us a picture of our surroundings. So when color is missing, we start to see the world differently: textures and shapes become more apparent, and the world seems perceptibly slower. Black and white designs play on…

This ideal isn’t exactly possible for everyone, especially in this day and age where companies have the daft idea open plan offices are the way to go, even when studies show otherwise. Even in an isolated and quiet space, there’s potential noise disruptions from all kinds of things like roadworks, neighbours’ music or DIY, squawking birds, yapping dogs, screaming kids and just a few seconds of any of these can knock…

    We got on a train going in the wrong direction. Our journey took 6 hours instead of 60 minutes but it was one of the best mistakes my wife and I made during our year of travelling because we had the pleasure of watching the magical wonderland of a Japanese autumn roll past our window. It was a pure visual joy of nature and colour from beginning to end. Beyond the autumn wonderland, we fell in love with everything Japan had to offer, including the food, the people, the cities, the countryside, the culture and their language even though I couldn’t understand a word people were saying.

    Have you ever played a video game and wanted to smash the controller into a million pieces? I’m far from an aggressive person but I once attempted to throw a controller against the floor but luckily for me, a pillow was placed exactly where I threw it, preventing any damage. That calmed me down and made me realise I needed to change something to avoid further frustration. What I learnt about frustration when playing computer games has helped me when frustration strikes when I design. It can be annoying to have the perfect vision of the website you want to design in your head only for it to…

It can make you feel depressed, frustrated, anxious, and even angry, especially if you constantly criticise yourself for not doing a good enough job after spending a lot of time and effort on a design. It’s an unhealthy mindset. It isn’t healthy for you and it isn’t healthy for your design work. It’s a fear many designers struggle with so it needs addressing right away with a new way of thinking.

    Theoretically, you need to have just one block of CSS style sheets per website, which are applicable to every browser that is in use. As soon as you use CSS however, you find this to be just that: theoretical. Browsers today implement CSS standards unevenly, with bugs that are unique to specific browsers. In addition, you may find that a good chunk of your site traffic uses an old browser with very basic CSS support.

    What makes a website so unique, interesting and attention-grabbing? The days of site owners relying on a 'Content, is a king' ideology has passed. So the answer is quite tricky. Nowadays, the overall impression of the project comes from several factors. Of course, content still plays the first fiddle, yet without a proper shell that includes modern design, high-end techniques, eye-pleasing effects, excellent visual experience, fast loading, great readability and most importantly appropriate and handy navigation, it will lose its significance and power. Ok, you may say that without content,…

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…

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.

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 think this application is more user-friendly for multi-user video than anything I’ve seen (Spreecast, Google Hangouts, Skype, etc.) It is also way better than Periscope or Meerkat because it’s two-way. Those video streaming tools are really only one-way. Blab now…

  • How to Create Recovery Partition in OS X

    While I was doing maintenance for my OS X, using the Maintenance app, the app told me that my disk partition needs to be repaired. So, as usual, I reboot OS X and held Cmd + R to access the Disk Utilty in OS X Recovery to fix it. However, instead of coming to Disk Recovery Assistant, I was directed to the Internet Recovery, which was unusual. I later on figured out that this happened because the Recovery partition is missing somehow. To verify this, I ran diskutil list in Terminal but I can’t find the Recovery HD partition. Internet Recovery is a feature addition since OS X. It lets us…

    WordPress keeps improving with new features in each new edition. Some of these new features are so subtle that you might have overlooked them. In version 4.2, for example, WordPress adds a set of new Emojis which you could use to make your post more fun and expressive. To display these Emoji, WordPress loads a script, wp-emoji-release.min.js, behind the scenes. However, if you find that you do not use Emoji much, there is not point on loading this script, and you might want to consider removing this feature. Here are two ways you can do so.

    I’ve gotten a lot of responses to this post about how I made the intricate designs in those headers. Swirls, and swooshes, or whatever you want to call them, are pretty hard to come by as a freebie (except here on BittBox), and they are even more rare in vector format. Part of the reason is that most people, even avid Illustrator users, don’t realize how easy it is to create these shapes. All it takes is a few simple, yet not highly utilized Illustrator tips.

    26 Aug 2015 | 3:21 pm
    When great trees fall, rocks on distant hills shudder, lions hunker down in tall grasses, and even elephants lumber after safety. When great trees fall in forests, small things recoil into silence, their senses eroded beyond fear. When great souls die, the air around us becomes light, rare, sterile. We breathe, briefly. Our eyes, briefly, see with a hurtful clarity. Our memory, suddenly sharpened, examines, gnaws on kind words unsaid, promised walks never taken. Great souls die and our reality, bound to them, takes leave of us. Our souls, dependent upon their nurture, now shrink, wizened. Our…

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.

I don’t remember what I said and I’m sure I made the call to my mother collect, so it was a relief she accepted the charges. I had my doubts.

  • 30+ impactful black and white websites

    Paddi MacDonnell
    27 Aug 2015 | 4:45 am
    Color is one of the most significant elements of any design. It creates emotion, guides us through an interface, and reinforces a brand. It’s rare that you find a truly black and white design, more often monochrome designs are dark gray, or off-white. But the effect is the same. Color is literally how we see the world — different light particles being absorbed, or emitted, give us a picture of our surroundings. So when color is missing, we start to see the world differently: textures and shapes become more apparent, and the world seems perceptibly slower. Black and white designs play on…

  • The 1 rule all designers should live by

    25 Aug 2015 | 4:45 am
    When Thomas Heatherwick’s 2012 Olympic cauldron unfolded its 204 petals on a warm summer’s evening in London during the opening ceremony, many gasped in awe. It captured brilliantly, in a moment, the optimism and human achievement that’s the core of the Olympic spirit. It was something that no-one had seen before, nor expected; unique in its boldness, arguably setting a new standard. Yet this spirit of unadulterated optimism seems to be short supply.

  • The UX case against the home button

    For years, the “home” button has provided a compass rose, the north star, a navigator’s ability to regroup to the familiar comfort of the homepage no matter how deep into a website we’ve gone. As users become more fluent in navigating the intricacies of the Web however, having a prominent home button is becoming an unnecessary navigation crutch — a visual obstacle that web designers increasingly eschew. By culling the home button…we are able to provide an improved user experience. Because primary navigation represents a series of choices that we’re asking users to make, it’s…

  • CSS3 Transforms Card Flip Animation

    Amber Weinberg
    28 Aug 2015 | 7:49 am
    Short and simple this week! I needed to code a card flip animation on hover for a client. I love how simple it is to create cool animations in CSS3. Just a couple lines of code needed! Just uses CSS3 transforms and some backface-visibility. See the Pen CSS3 Transforms Card Flip Animation by Amber Weinberg (@amberweinberg) on CodePen.

    A super simple and foolproof way of centering anything. It works with relative or absolute positioning, which makes it more versatile than other methods I’ve seen. Note: if you’re using position relative to horizontally align your element, it must have a definite width See the Pen Horizontal and Vertical Align Anything by Amber Weinberg (@amberweinberg) on CodePen.

    No matter how long you’ve worked in this industry, you’ll always encounter bad clients. A lot of the times, we can spot them from far off and send them packing. Then there are times the red flags don’t start waving until the middle of the project, or we can be so excited to work on a particular project that we completely ignore them. Of course hindsight is 20/20, and you end up realizing that no matter how small, there were signs from the beginning. I recently ended a working relationship with a new client that was unprofessional from the beginning. I definitely don’t…

    I’ve recently had a few different clients request some snazzy rollover animations. Basically an image with a title at the bottom, that on rollover moves to the top of the image with a bit of content below. Not one to make things jerky and plain – I decided to jazz this up with smooth animations and fading content – and accomplish it without any JS at all. Let’s get started with a bit of semantic HTML (I’m removing all the WP functions and such for clarity) <a class"event" href"link.html"> <img src"your-image.jpg"…

Both are technically similar as they are designed to absorb solar energy. However, the only difference between them is their ability to provide comfort adjustment.

    If you do any client work, you understand that success or failure depends on meeting expectations; one of the hardest things to do. There are some rules you can follow to ensure that your presentations are engaging, and well-received. 1) Make sure no one is late to the party If someone is going to have an opinion, make sure they are involved from the start of the project. That way, any ideas, concerns, or revisions late in the process made by people who aren’t stakeholders can’t potentially hold up the project. This is huge, but it happens again and again.

  • 30+ impactful black and white websites

    Paddi MacDonnell
    27 Aug 2015 | 4:45 am
    Color is one of the most significant elements of any design. It creates emotion, guides us through an interface, and reinforces a brand. It’s rare that you find a truly black and white design, more often monochrome designs are dark gray, or off-white. But the effect is the same. Color is literally how we see the world — different light particles being absorbed, or emitted, give us a picture of our surroundings. So when color is missing, we start to see the world differently: textures and shapes become more apparent, and the world seems perceptibly slower. Black and white designs play on…

It captured brilliantly, in a moment, the optimism and human achievement that’s the core of the Olympic spirit. It was something that no-one had seen before, nor expected; unique in its boldness, arguably setting a new standard. Yet this spirit of unadulterated optimism seems to be short supply.

    For years, the “home” button has provided a compass rose, the north star, a navigator’s ability to regroup to the familiar comfort of the homepage no matter how deep into a website we’ve gone. As users become more fluent in navigating the intricacies of the Web however, having a prominent home button is becoming an unnecessary navigation crutch — a visual obstacle that web designers increasingly eschew. By culling the home button…we are able to provide an improved user experience. Because primary navigation represents a series of choices that we’re asking users to make, it’s…

Although I don't know of a way to do this through the Umbraco backoffice or with configuration, it is suprisingly easy to write some custom code to handle this. The idea is pretty simple. The Umbraco core (at least as of Umbraco 7.2.x) uses AutoMapper to map the IContent into ContentItemDisplay objects. Using AutoMapper, we can interecept these mappings and tack on some additional adjustments. Then we just need to make sure that on…

First I tried out Origami from the team at Facebook (read previous article) that sat on Apple’s free Quartz Composer application that had traditionally been used as a motion graphics tool but found it to be too complicated to use in a real workflow. Then I tried Avocado from the team at IDEO (read previous article) that looked to try to improve upon the work that had been done in Origami but here again the application was just too complicated and the learning curve was too high to make…

    There’s a lot of hysteria and scaremongering around about “Ofsted” website compliance. As an honest and ethical company we’d rather stick to the facts. So what are the facts? Well, we know that in September 2012 The School Information Regulations 2012 became law as we described in our blog post at the time statutory requirements for school websites.

Teaching Schools are outstanding schools who became eligible to bid for status and to serve as the ‘Lead School’ of an alliance comprising other educational establishments, from primaries to HEIs. By de-centralising school improvement and putting it in the hands of the people who do the job, day in and day out, it…

  • Psychological Tactics Used by High-Converting eCommerce Sites

    Julie Ellis
    26 Aug 2015 | 1:47 am
    Nothing happens until a visitor clicks a button. And once that happens, that visitor is somewhere in the pipeline of a purchase – either providing contact information, signing up for something, claiming a free trial, or actually making a final purchase. Any one of these actions can be considered a “conversion.” Getting a visitor to the point of conversion requires sales tactics that have been used for years and are the result of basic human psychological behavior – emotional appeals, such as a sense of belonging, a need to not be left out or an urgency of some sort, like a limited…
  • How Uncertainty can Help Boost Ecommerce Sales

    Cassandra Michael
    19 Aug 2015 | 4:18 am
    The concept of the unknown has motivated people for years to explore, risk and discover. New research has found that uncertainty is more powerful than certainty in motivating us to accomplish a certain goal. This concept is defined as the “Motivating-Uncertainty Effect”. The research suggests that we invest far more time, effort and money in pursuing the unknown than when our reward has been clearly specified. Below, an image from CognitiveLode outlines a study where researchers asked students to bid on a bag of chocolates. As you can see, the results are quite remarkable! In a…

This is an interesting challenge. How do UX professionals measure and determine the success of their work? How can they begin to determine what aspects of UX design are measurable and how do they go about doing so?

    With the recent release of Panda 4.2 (a series of updates to Google’s ranking algorithm that started with Panda 1.0 in 2011), there has been a lot of talk about how this update can affect search performance. Panda, in particular, targets sites with low quality content and applies a filter making it more difficult for those sites to appear in search results. Google’s primary goal with Panda is to push content farms and sites that scrape their content from other sites further down in the search results. Essentially, if the content doesn’t provide any value or if it’s stolen from…

    Ever stop to wonder how artists knew how to mix colors before Photoshop? Well, trial and error, mostly. Or if you became so proficient with a particular medium, you likely just "knew" what worked well and how to do it. But consistencies must have varied greatly, and even knowing if a particular color existed would've been just about impossible. Key word there is "Just." Back in 1692, an artist created a book that taught other artists how to mix watercolors. His name was "A. Boogert," and, by showing the recipes for how he got to certain hues and tones, he showed others what kinds of colors…

Signika not only comes in 4 weights, but each weight also have a negative version that is “optimised [sic] to solve the effect of juxtaposed positive and negative text setting, where the text in negative tends to look thicker”. Oh don’t forget about the massive character set “supporting most of the Eurpoean [sic] languages, small caps, pictograms and arrows.” Get Signika from Fontfabric or include it…

    I’ll be the first to admit I don’t tend to use a lot of script type fonts. There are a few handwritten fonts that I use occasionally, and I think Reis will become one of them. Reis is a free handwritten font by Marcelo Melo that I’ve only recently discovered. I’ve seen it a number of times, but only recently installed it – and I’m glad I did. For me, the style and form of the characters leaves you with a wide range of uses. From stylish and playful, to eerie and spooky. It just depends on the project … and that’s gold in my book.

The Lost Type Co-op is probably one of my favorite resources for fonts. While it’s not a huge library of fonts, the fonts are done well and seem to really spark creative ideas within me.

    So I recently read a blog about Google changing some of the results of mobile websites. Here is our take on all of this. We’ve seen this coming from the big G since 2013 so it’s no surprise that is finally happening now.

While it may not be an easy fix for some business owners, it’s Google’s way of pushing people to upgrade their websites, which is probably a good thing. With the widespread increase of mobile users, we…

    As a server side scripting language, PHP is the most widely used language across the web. At the same time, it is one of the most hated languages by developers. Over the last few years, we’ve seen an increasing fragmentation of server side languages being used, especially with websites adopting Node.js. Despite this, PHP has remained one of the most popular server side programming languages – and there’s a reason for that. The bottom line is choosing a server side language is a solution to a specific problem. PHP serves as this solution for a multitude of applications on the web.
