    Advertise here with BSATweetRunning a website can be a stressful ordeal, fraught with difficulties that must be overcome and metrics that must be measured and tweaked. For a small business, understanding how to improve website conversions or reduce bounce rates could be the difference between success and failure. Site speed has always been an extremely important factor in increasing conversions, because let’s be honest – who wants to wait for a shopping cart to load? Recently Google has also started to factor site speed into their ranking algorithm, essentially ranking significantly…

    One of the most rewarding feelings of writing for Tuts+ is the feeling of educating others. More specifically, it's the feeling of teaching others how to learn a new skill such that they can apply it in their current field of work or, in some cases, venture into a new career (perhaps one that they've always wanted).But writing can be a challenge. Trying to determine what to write is one thing, but trying to figure out the best way to actually present that content is an entirely new challenge.For the last few years, I've been writing for Tuts+, producing courses, and even editing articles.

      Whether it’s playful refresh states, subtle icon movements or complex transitions, beautiful animation is all around us. Once considered an aesthetic luxury, animation is now used so commonly in modern web and mobile applications that entire websites are dedicated to UI animation patterns. While animations may have great visual appeal, they also make app experiences more intuitive and engaging. Animation can make an app feel more fluid and responsive by providing feedback on user interaction. This means that, for designers, creating authentic animations is increasingly becoming…

  • Constructing CSS Quantity Queries On The Fly

    Drew Minns
    29 Jul 2015 | 7:16 am
      Often within a project, the presentation of our content changes based on certain needs. We see this when we use media queries to change our styles based on the user device. CSS quantity queries follow the same concept of changing the styles based on a condition: the condition within a quantity query being the number of sibling elements. An example would be navigation where items are 25% wide when four items are available; yet when there are five items available, the width of the navigation items changes to 20%. This is a common problem with dynamic site frameworks like WordPress…

  • Love Your CMS. (No, Really!)

    3 Aug 2015 | 7:19 am
    “Content management system.” The words are simple enough, but what exactly is a CMS? Is it a simple tool for editing a web page in a WYSIWYG box, or a robust system that keeps track of the historical versions of every sentence on the site? Is it a free piece of software you can install in an afternoon, or a massive purchase that involves contracts and licensing fees and schmoozy dinners with salespeople? Does it help you build a sleek responsive site, or does it thwart you at every turn? Tragically, the answer is that a CMS is, and does, all of these things. CMSes help and hinder; they…

    When I was starting out as a web designer, one of my chief joys was simply observing how my mentors went about their job—the way they prepared for projects, the way they organized their work. I knew that it would take a while for my skills to catch up to theirs, but I had an inkling that developing a foundation of good work habits was something that would stay with me throughout my career. Many of those habits centered around creating a personal system for organizing all the associated bits and pieces that contributed to the actual code I wrote. These days as I mentor Bluecadet’s dev…

    Learning to code, whether done through a system like Treehouse or independently, can be a heck of a journey. Much has been written about the early bouts of confusion, impostor syndrome and debugging purgatory that often turn the outwardly ambitious into the seemingly sadistic. No doubt, the above phenomena are quite real and to varying degrees, they can represent useful and edifying phases in the growth of a developer. Certainly, being “stuck”, making mistakes, rooting out answers and good old-fashioned hard work have their place, but often in learning to program, we allow ourselves to…

My origin story is a bit of a weird one. I got interested in coding because of my love for Markdown. Why Markdown?

    One of the most fascinating WordPress features is its multisite functionality.

All it needs are multiple websites that use either subdomains or subdirectories of one domain. If you have different domains, you can’t use the WordPress network function without further ado – you’ll need an additional plugin.

    I’M ALWAYS telling my colleagues and students that a designer who wants to make a difference and enjoy a long career must master writing and public speaking. I’ve seen way too many designers with far greater natural gifts than I possess struggle in early, mid-, and late career, because, despite their great talent and the thoughtful rigor of their work, they lack the practiced, confident communications ability that every designer needs to sell their best work. Few designers currently working better exemplify the designer-as-communicator than Mike Monteiro, co-founder of Mule Design…
  • Publishing Versus Performance: Our Struggle for the Soul of the Web

    Jeffrey Zeldman
    29 Jul 2015 | 10:21 am
    MY SOUL is in twain. Two principles on which clued-in web folk heartily agree are coming more and more often into conflict—a conflict most recently thrust into relief by discussions around the brilliant Vox Media team, publishers of The Verge. The two principles are: Building performant websites is not only a key differentiator that separates successful sites from those which don’t get read; it’s also an ethical obligation, whose fulfillment falls mainly on developers, but can only happen with the buy-in of the whole team, from marketing to editorial, from advertising to design.

    Andy Clarke
    20 Jul 2015 | 1:30 am
    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…

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.

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…

    Logo Design Love

  • 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…

The company’s frozen fancies are strictly for grown-ups and they needed a distinctive identity and tone of voice to match their unconventional new brand.” “Our challenge was to craft an intriguing hand lettered mark utilising both positive and negative space to spell out the brand name and the words ‘ice cream’ within the lip shape.” Pulling that off is no mean feat.

I feel confident enough to say that after weeks of working on a logo and applying a carefully tested method I don’t need to present two or three proposals. Instead I can fine tune the one I’m working on. Do you present your clients with more than one option?” A good question sent in by Rome-based designer Sonia Gazzelloni.

    There is a great scene in Cold Mountain where Inman, who is AWOL from the army in The Civil War, is walking through the woods on a horse opposite Bosie, the deputy charged with catching people like Inman. The two are at a gunpoint standoff: Bosie: Tell you what I got on my side. Inman: What have you got on your side? Bosie: The confidence of youth. Bosie is absolute in his convictions. Inman had done wrong and for that he will die. The truth, of course, is far more complicated. Inman is sick of war. He doesn't understand it.

  • Debugging CSS Keyframe Animations

    Sarah Drasner
    3 Aug 2015 | 6:00 am
    Creating CSS animations may be about learning the syntax, but mastering a beautiful and intuitive-feeling animation requires a bit more nuance. Since animations command so much attention, it's important to refine our code to get the timing right and debug things when they go wrong. After tackling this problem myself, I thought I'd collect some of the tools that exist to aid in this process. Using Negative Delay Values Say you have multiple animations running at the same time and you'd like them to stagger just a bit. You can use animation-delay, but don't necessarily want the viewer to visit…
  • Understanding Proxy Browsers

    A new series of posts by Tim Kadlec on proxy browsers and why some people need them: I'd venture to say that most developers and designers are not big fans of proxy browsers—assuming they pay attention to them at all. They don't behave in ways a typical browser does, which leads to frustration as we see our carefully created sites fall apart for seemingly no reason at all. And frankly, most of us don't really need to use them on a day-to-day basis. Through the lens we view the web, proxy browsers are merely troublesome relics of a time before the idea of a "smartphone" was anything other…
  • Motion along path in CSS

    Chris Coyier
    29 Jul 2015 | 11:12 am
    From the "I barely knew this was a thing and you can already play with it in browsers" files: Motion paths allow authors to animate any graphical object along an author-specified path. I suspect Chrome jumped on this because it's something that was only otherwise doable in SMIL, which they are ditching. I believe this is the first time the full path syntax has made it into CSS? (e.g. motion-path: path('M100,250 C 100,50 400,50 400,250');). There are some demos on CodePen. Direct Link to Article — Permalink Motion along path in CSS is a post from CSS-Tricks

While there is no way to say yes to every idea, concept or request, you probably should make it a bigger part of your strategy.

  • Affinity Designer, a design tool review

    Andy Gongea
    13 Jul 2015 | 3:09 pm
    Four months ago, I have purchased my first Mac Mini. I’m talking about an entry level 2012 generation device, packed with 4GB of Ram and an Intel i5 processor. The reason for buying this version and not the 2014 revision, was the ability to upgrade the device with SSD and memory that I choose. A secondary reason for buying a Mac mini was to do design work. And even though I have a pretty powerful PC, I wanted a OSX device so that I can purchase cheaper Photoshop alternatives – Pixelmator and the relatively new Affinity Designer.And this is where my story begins…Firing up…

    30 May 2012 | 10:06 am
    Pretty often in our daily existence we tend to override our moral conduct. We sustain these alterations with various excuses, most of the time pointing at external reasons. In design, as in life, having principles and a proper conduct will help define you as a good designer.In these lines I want to thank Andy Rutledge, a good designer with proper conduct and principles. His latest project, the Academy of Design Professionals, is an attempt, a wake-up call to dedicate yourself, to give 110%, so that you can see your design dedication and commitment in your work.

  • OWASP Automated Threat Handbook v1.00

    31 Jul 2015 | 1:53 am
    I have been working on a new OWASP incubator project since February this year — the Automated Threats to Web Applications Project. There are many aspects of automation that can contribute to application security, but there are also automated threats that disrupt operations. There is a significant body of knowledge about application vulnerability types, and some general consensus about identification and naming. But I believe issues relating to the misuse of valid functionality (which may be caused by design flaws rather than implementation bugs) are less well defined. Yet these problems…

    Gartner has published an updated "magic quadrant" report about Web Application Firewall (WAF) vendors. Sixteen vendor offerings are assessed. To be included, the product has to be actively marketed, use techniques designed for web security, and not just use attack signature-based approach found in other devices such as next-generation firewalls and intrusion protection systems (IPSs). The Gartner category excludes WAFs that are directly integrated with either the web server or the web application. It is limited thus to devices "in front of" web applications, but includes purpose-built…

    Security was given a high profile on the agenda of this year's Norwegian Developers Conference (NDC).

He explained his knowledge and guidance for AngularJS based around the OWASP Top 10 risks, and his presentation is now available online. The slides contain many useful code samples and demos.

His presentation is available to watch, but he mentioned that he was working on a new document for the OWASP cheat sheet series. The Transaction Authorization Cheat Sheet has been published. It describes necessary functional and non-functional requirements to implement transaction authorisation properly. Whilst such checks are common in financial applications to confirm with the intended user that an electronic fund transfer is valid, transaction authorisation also occurs in other…

    As a web designer, it is a major asset to be able to understand – and even orchestrate – what is going on “behind the scenes”. At the least, you should take some coding lessons. I’m not talking about front-end languages like HTML and CSS — you probably know a lot of that stuff already. I’m talking about the back-end stuff. If you know how to lay the groundwork, then you can better understand how to design the rest of a site. The fact of the matter is, learning to code will make you a better designer.

It has been released a short period of time now, and Marcel and myself wanted to check it out. Using Xamarin.Forms, you'll be able to use C# or XAML to define the mobile UI using one single codebase. Xamarin deliveres a load of standard controls, but makes it possible to create custom controls for a specific platform with ease. This way, you can create full native controls, and get the best performance and user experience out of your app. We'll dive into some basics of Xamarin.Forms, and…
  • Xamarin Studio Launcher

    12 Jun 2014 | 11:21 am
    Since I've been using Xamarin for mobile development, I've been using the awesome Xamarin Studio Launcher from @redth. By default, only one instance of Xamarin Studio can be started on a Mac. However, by using the Xamarin Studio Launcher, you'll be able to open up multiple instances of Xamarin Studio with the click of a button. Xamarin Studio got a total new redesign since the release of Xamarin 3. This included a new application icon for Xamarin Studio, while Xamarin Studio Launcher hasn't got an update with the new icon yet. I went ahead and created it, so it fits in your dock nicely! Now…
  • Virtual buttons in Augmented Reality with Vuforia

    4 May 2014 | 11:14 am
    For this tutorial, we'll add something neat to my previous tutorial about augmented reality. In my opinion, AR itself is already pretty awesome, but this time we'll add some more interaction between the real world and the AR world. We'll achieve this by adding virtual buttons to the scene, which simply means that we add buttons to the AR world, which can be touched in the real world. How cool is that! Since we're building on top of the previous tutorial, we'll be using the same technology from Vuforia. They make it pretty easy for us to achieve this effect. Let's get started! Read more...

    Social media has become a constant in modern daily life. By now it’s not uncommon for grandparents to have their own profiles on Facebook. This means that marketing on social media is beginning to have less limits on possible target demographics, and increasingly greater reach as the number of users on major social media sites rises. Designing a successful online brand depends not only on compelling ideas, but equally on adaptability That said, the social media marketing realm is as dependent on constant change as the social media landscape itself.

    Game of Thrones, based on George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire book series, has captivated audiences for five seasons now, with a sixth already in production.

    Perfectionism can be devastating. 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.

    Cherry nail art is a fun and cute nail art design to try! Cherry nails are also pretty simple to create, so they’re a good choice for just about anyone who wants to paint nails in a fun design, from novices to experts. To create cherries on the nails, use a dotting tool to create the fruit with red nail polish. Add some green stems with a thin nail brush. A tiny dab of white can also be used to create a reflection on the cherries. Cherry nail art can be placed on several different background colors. White is a classic color and can really make the red cherries pop. However, black can…

    Pink tattoos are sweet and feminine tattoos for women. Pink ribbon tattoos are often popular choices to honor loved ones who have battled breast cancer. However, there are so many other tattoo designs that can be inked in pink too! Getting a pink tattoo can be a bit tricky, though. Like white tattoos, light pink tattoo designs may not show up well on all skin tones. Generally speaking, pink tattoos show up best on lighter skin. That’s not to say that pink tattoos won’t show up well on darker skin tones. They may look bright and vibrant at first, only to fade to a dull unattractive…

  • 17 Subtle White Ink Wrist Tattoo Ideas

    All white ink tattoos weren’t commonplace several years ago. White tattoo ink was, and still is, used primarily as a highlight color in traditional tattoos. However, a white tattoo trend seems to have caught on, and they are becoming less and less unusual. Unlike a regular tattoo, a white ink wrist tattoo is very subtle and sometimes hardly noticeable. Part of this is due to the location of the tattoo, but mostly due to the lack of pigment in the ink. A white ink wrist tattoo is so subtle that it can turn out to look like a beautiful scar on some people. If you’re considering a…

    A fishtail braid is one of the more common variations of the classic three-strand braid. It is so named because it resembles the spine or tail of a fish, and it is also sometimes referred to as a Herringbone or fishbone braid. Despite looking like a rather complex braid to complete, the fishtail braid is actually quite easy with a little practice. It involves starting with two sections of hair and crossing small strands of each section over to the other section. As with a regular braid, there are a number of fishtail braid ideas and styles out there. Fishtail braid ideas can be used to create…

    Four months ago, I have purchased my first Mac Mini. I’m talking about an entry level 2012 generation device, packed with 4GB of Ram and an Intel i5 processor.

    At its most basic, a landing page is the first page that a user goes to on your site. They might have arrived there via a Google search, or from a link sent through an email, or through simply typing in your web address. However, when most people talk about landing pages as part of a marketing campaign, it’s generally a self-contained page that tries to make the visitor do something – sign up for a newsletter; leave their details for a call back; or even buy a product.

Your friends or extended family may put their forks where you place your knives, but generally speaking, there’s little difference. It’s what we would call an optimised space.

  • Mobile experience is everything.

    25 Nov 2014 | 10:05 pm
    As we are all aware, the mobile market is booming. This has had some implications for digital marketing which is when responsive websites come in handy. How important is it though to create a seamless mobile experience? As more people use smartphones, they adapt to that and expect all websites to deliver that same experience. Google will be penalising sites that are not configured for smartphones. If that wasn’t enough here are some global statistics; 1. The average person is checking their phone approximately 150times a day. 2. As of OCT 2013, over 50% of emails are opened on…

  • The 12-Step Program To Personal Productivity

    Guest Contributor
    31 Jul 2015 | 8:01 am
    The phrase "12-step-program" carries the connotation of addiction and it was purposely used in the title of this post. You see, in order to be consistently productive you must, in effect, become addicted to being productive. Believe it or not, developing an addiction (habit) can be more difficult to accomplish than overcoming one. Before you embark on the path to productivity, you need to clean house, so to speak, by removing a few of the most common obstacles to productivity. While each of us is plagued with various disincentives to productivity, a few are common to the least…

  • How To Create a Text Portrait Effect in Photoshop

    Chris Spooner
    3 Aug 2015 | 12:00 am
    In today’s Photoshop tutorial we’re going to create a cool portrait effect using a long passage of text that bends and deforms around the contours of the face. Known as a Calligram, this effect is particularly powerful when used to present famous quotes or speeches by depicting the author/speaker with the actual words. Photoshop’s Displace filter is the key ingredient in this recipe which allows us to accurately wrap the text around the subject. In my example, I’m combing a stock photo with a transcript of the speech from the movie The American President (1995) to…

  • A History of Typeface Styles & Type Classification

    Typography is a complicated subject to learn, but starting with the history of type styles is a great way to gain an understanding of why there’s so many fonts, and why they look so different! Typefaces are divided up into classifications based on the era or characteristics of their design, which helps narrow down your options when choosing a font for your projects. Being able to identify a typeface style can help you make educated design decisions and choose the best font for your work depending on its use. In today’s post I give a brief overview of the main typeface…

    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.

    Does your Photoshop document have what seems to be a million layers that are all turned off? Instead of deleting them one by one, you can save a lot of time by deleting them all at the same time! This simple feature is often missed by many professionals, but it is really much easier than I ever expected it to be. I’m not sure about later versions, but I know this is possible in both Photoshop CS6 and below… First open any layered Photoshop file and hide a few layers if you don’t have any hidden already. Then, in the Layers Palette, click on the little arrow in the upper…

    Yesterday, we got a question on Facebook that made me feel the need to respond publicly: are you guys going to have a fix for the Google Bot issue that came up today?

    Internal search is a valuable asset for any informational website containing over 20 pages. That value is probably double or more for webshops. The easier a visitor gets to the desired product, the more likely he or she will buy it. Following my post on internal search for informational websites, I’d like to elaborate a bit more on internal search for webshops in this post.

Later, it evolved to News Feed that relies on an algorithm to determine what the user wants to see first. Now, Facebook…

    Some designers prefer the jack-of-all-trades route because it offers more job security. But most specialists would debate that focusing on a particular skillset improves your recognition amongst clients and employers. This isn’t to say you should only learn one area of design and never try anything else. The idea of specialization is to do amazing work in one particular area, rather than do “pretty good” work in multiple areas. You can always expand your skillset but specialists prefer to work on projects in their area of expertise. If you’re just getting into design…

When you churn out a project for days or weeks on end you can’t really see it with fresh eyes anymore. This is why input from other designers can prove to be immeasurably helpful. If you work in a design agency then you have coworkers who are often more than willing to lend their opinion. But working freelance is another story and personal projects are the same way.

    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>…

    The age of mobile marketing is upon us. With mobile users accounting for 30 to 50 percent of online traffic, commercial websites cannot afford to ignore the small screen market. The shift to mobile access led the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to recommend that website designers strive to make the same information and services available to users across multiple devices and screen sizes. Trouble is, your carefully designed website, which looks so beautiful and accessible on a PC monitor, may look like a crowded mess on a mobile device.

    The word “template” has become a bad word, when it comes to website design.

Many other people could have used the same template, therefore your site is not unique. And they would be right about that.

    We have a couple of projects where we wanted to gain more control over the sort order of some of the default Umbraco tabs like "Properties" or "Child items". 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…

    I am constantly amazed at how little time people spend writing and crafting their resume yet your resume is probably the single most important document for the future of your career. I have found that reason why most resumes and portfolios fail is because the person creating them has no idea of who they are and what makes them different. As a result their resume is filled with generic business speak and overused cliché phrases that look impressive to fill up a page but ultimately say nothing about them. The result is then when this generic document is put into a pile with other resumes it…

    Create a responsive full screen menu for your Wordpress website We have recently seen a growing trend of websites using a full screen menu - this is for two main reasons.

  • Is Web Design Truly Dead?

    7 Jul 2015 | 10:15 am
    People love making predictions for the future. Arthur Ellsworth Summerfield, the Postmaster General in 1959, once hilariously predicted, “Before man reaches the moon, your mail will be delivered within hours from New York to Australia by guided missiles. We stand on the threshold of rocket mail.” Steve Ballmer, the then CEO of Microsoft claimed in 2007 that, “There’s no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance.” As for me, I like to be critical and there’s nothing easier to critique then a nice juicy prediction and I’d like to thank UX…
  • What Makes a Good Logo Design?

    1 Jun 2015 | 2:45 pm
    We have this conversation so often with clients embarking on a logo design project that I’m amazed it’s taken this long to write about it… so here is a post about what makes a good logo. Any client undertaking an exercise in logo design for their organization needs to understand a difficult truth. It is that most people don’t have very good taste when it comes to style and this is especially true when it comes to a variant that they don’t know much about.

    15 Apr 2015 | 1:26 pm
    As everyone now knows, Hillary Clinton is running for the Democratic nomination in the upcoming presidential election. When she announced her intentions earlier this week, she unveiled the branding of her campaign to a flurry of criticism, parody, and ridicule. The consensus was pretty clear that most people hated her new logo. Is the criticism and the negative backlash an accurate indication of whether or not this is a good logo? Let’s consider some defining qualities of a good and effective logo to answer that question. A good logo should be… Visually appealing Representative Memorable…
  • ‘What is the secret to success?’ and the problem with asking that question

    27 Mar 2015 | 4:14 pm
    I was recently having a conversation with a professional peer who was asking me about work and how it was going. After answering him, he said something like, “Wow, sounds like things are going really well. What’s your secret?” I like to think of myself as someone who isn’t easily offended because I admire people who aren’t, but I have to admit, I was a little put out by that question. You see, I think it betrays a mentality that is at the heart of a maturity paralysis that is pervasive in our society. It assumes that the outcomes we desire in our lives (ie. Successes) are the…
