    Web designing is indeed a dynamic, evolving, exciting and trendy domain which needs to be in tune and live harmony with major changes in search algorithms to stay alive and useful to the burgeoning   web user community. This being the case, one of the major current rages that has hit web designing on the belt has been the increasing use of ghost buttons in websites. What on earth are ghost buttons? Well, to cut a long story short and lively, these are indeed attractive links that are designed to remain occult and yet, paradoxically, are very much part of the holistic website. To be candid,…
  • An Introduction To Page Layout For UX

    3 Oct 2014 | 12:00 pm
    Page Layout is a tricky number in the days of multiple devices and responsive design. You have to make a lot of decisions about where you place text, how you style it and how integrate visual content into the flow of your design. It’s not just a question of visual impact but also the effect your layout has on UX and the journey a user takes along the page and website as a whole. Users are more impatient than ever which means you have to work harder to direct visitors where you want and inspire the actions your client depends on. It starts with the very basics of layout design and…

    Information architecture (IA) is one of those buzzwords you’ve probably heard before. It refers to the organization of the information on your website and how it all fits together. When planning your IA, involve users of your website in the process as soon as you can. In this article, we’ll discuss card sorting, a tried and true technique for doing just that.

  • Ready For Retina HD: Create Pixel-Perfect Assets For Multiple Scale Factors

    Karsten Bruns
    15 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    The 6 Plus is the first iPhone that sports a “Retina HD” display — the sharpest display Apple has ever made. It forces designers to provide an additional set of image resources to developers to match that sharpness. We needed only one set of assets for the original iPhone up to iPhone 3GS. And when iPhone 4 came out with the Retina display, we also needed 2x assets — images twice as detailed. Now, with the display of the 6 Plus being even more detailed than that of the iPhone 4, we will also need to provide 3x assets. The numbers 1x, 2x and 3x are also called “scale…

  • Personalizing Git with Aliases

    15 Oct 2014 | 5:30 am
    Part of getting comfortable with the command line is making it your own. Small customizations, shortcuts, and time saving techniques become second nature once you spend enough time fiddling around in your terminal. Since Git is my Version Control System of choice (due partially to its incredible popularity via GitHub), I like to spend lots of time optimizing my experience there. Once you’ve become comfortable enough with Git to push, pull, add, and commit, and you feel like you’d like to pursue more, you can customize it to make it your own.

You took raw materials and used them to create a product. You then sold the product for more than you paid for the raw materials. By turning raw materials into a product, you created value and thus you made money.In the information economy, value isn't created by shaping raw materials into products. It's created through ideas.

    Every designer has had a problem dealing with a client’s requests. Some clients give too many details while others give too little to work with. Designers need guidelines to help them with their commissioned works. That’s why before a project starts, the client is asked to fill out a creative brief. “Briefly”, a short film on creative briefs by Tom Bassett of Bassett & Partners, was launched online last September 30, 2014 and so far has been receiving great reviews. Creative talents are sure to love this 26-minute film about how the creative brief is constantly…

We created this little world of ours where everything seemed to be possible. Fancied by the thought of fantasies being real, surely it left our childhood memories much more happier.

    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…

    Daniel J. Levitin for the Sunday Review: Our brains have two dominant modes of attention: the task-positive network and the task-negative network. The task-positive network is active when you’re actively engaged in a task, focused on it, and undistracted. The task-negative network is active when your mind is wandering. These two attentional networks operate like a seesaw in the brain: when one is active the other is not. I love this explanation. I often find myself arguing for the power of not (as in, spending time purposefully not accomplishing tasks). American culture does not like this.

They are often mixed up with witchcraft and occults in the Western folktales. You will be surprised, but Chinese, on the contrary, believe that a bat is a sign of happiness and good fortune.

    This month’s episode of Design Matters is with Tom Geismar. “All a logo does is represent whatever the entity is, and peoples’ feelings about it are completely determined by their experiences with that entity. One test we often do is to say, ‘Who do you think has a good logo?’ And inevitably people say Apple and Nike and ones they think highly of. No one will ever say Enron.

    There are a couple of different (rational) approaches to SVG artboard sizing. The term "Artboard" here is referring to that concept in Illustrator, basically the white drawing area you have for the document. Ultimately it refers to the viewBox in the actual SVG output. It matters very much for front end developers, because if there is no consistency, the positioning of the SVGs will always be a little one-off battle and really hurt the idea of SVG being a useful system. I recently met developer Emma Arce at a conference who relayed a very interesting conversation between her team as they were…

    There’s no bigger hot button in the design industry than crowdsourcing. Sites like fiverr, eLance, 99designs, DesignContest, and oDesk promise digital client relationships while protecting the rights and payments of the “winners.” And therein lay the problem—these sites have winners and losers—mostly losers. But, what if you are a winner? A designer wrote and asked if he should stay away from these sites or give them a try. He had won $1,000 in a smaller design contest for some music label and was riding high on the thought he could continue winning—and earning money.

    When most of us think about design we focus on aesthetics. But as any designer will tell you, aesthetics shouldn’t be your primary concern. I have stayed in a lot of hotels recently. Most of those hotels are apart of a chain. Each chain positions itself carefully and uses design to create the right image. From the budget colour scheme of Premier Inns to the modern luxury of W hotels. They consider everything to ensure it communicates the right image. To portray the right brand identity. There is no doubt that aesthetics influence how we feel about something like a hotel room. But, it is the…

    7 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    Almost all organisations claim to be user centric or customer focused. But when you look at where they spend their money, things do not add up. “Your call is important to us. We value your patronage. Customer service is at the heart of what we do. Our customers are our passion.” We have all heard platitudes like this and few of us believe them. Instead we feel more like cash cows, feeding the coffers of multi-national corporations. But here is the rub. There is a good chance you have said similar things about your customers. Of course unlike those other companies you mean it.

Not exactly, because most designers I know hate to be touched or feel emotions. I would say the processes of designing and coding for the web both require creativity and logic.

    It wasn’t that many years ago when creating a design was a matter of cramming as much as possible onto each page, particularly the landing page – with the view that site owners want their visitors to get an eyeful of what they have to offer right off the bat. That idea has, over the years, been reconsidered to the point where minimal seems to be the trendy way to go now. Designing in the minimal style is not easy – just like creating minimalism in interior design, you have to look at everything you want in the room/on your home page, then de-clutter – then de-clutter again, and…

    Emotions allow for people to comprehend the world better; it’s how we learn new things. Items that are more aesthetically pleasing are seen in a more positive light; the item appears to be faster, more effective, more fun, all in all better. Because of the simple visual appeal, the person connects with that item on an emotional level and creates a bond with it. The opposite is also true where a person can create a connection of strong dislike if an item is unaesthetic. It’s a concept explained by Don Norman in his book Emotional Design. Emotional design as explained by Don applies to…

Smart watches are likely to stay around for a long time, so I think it’s high time to talk about the actual customer experience and usability that these devices have to offer. A wristwatch is first of all a fashion accessory, so it is somewhat difficult to evaluate its usability, but not when it claims…

Where it shines best as a solid UI design pattern is in cases where you want to present a series of content while preserving the continuity of the viewing experience. Your users can simply sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Creating a content slider from scratch is fairly straightforward if you’ve got good experience in HTML, CSS and JS. But, regardless of your skills, you may still want to use a pre-built solution to speed up the implementation on a website. When it comes to…

  • Unlocking the Secret of Simplicity in WordPress Themes Everything I've learned in 7 years

    Chris Wallace
    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…

With web services opening up their APIs, developers are moving to using third party applications to handle parts of the functionality—things such as authentication or emailing users.While the most common case is one where you use an API to connect to one of the popular online services (Google, Twitter, and so on) there are times when both of the applications you want to connect are your own.This happened to me some time ago: I had…

After all, both serve our purpose.Generally, we look for a luxurious home because it offers better facilities and requires less maintenance, and maintenance can done with less hassle because the basic groundwork is already there. The same thing applies to programming: Code that employs design patterns is easy to…

  • How to use UI design patterns

    Alex Ivanovs
    20 Oct 2014 | 1:15 am
    Design patterns are optimal solutions to common design problems. As common problems are tossed around a community and are resolved, common solutions often emerge. Eventually, the best of these rise above the din, self-identify, and become refined until they reach the status of a design pattern. I wouldn’t call a design patern a trend in web design, design patterns seem to be more about looking at how common designs are classified in retrospect, rather than forging new territory or looking to where things are headed. How should you approach UI design patterns? We use design patterns all…

  • 3 fundamentals of responsive design you have to master

    Richa Jain
    17 Oct 2014 | 1:15 am
    A few years ago, it was relatively easy to design and build websites. Websites were simpler, and were viewed on desktops and laptops with little variation in screen sizes. Today with mobile devices taking over viewers’ browsing time, a website can be viewed on a 4.8” smartphone screen, a 5” phablet, a 7” tablet or any size in between. So how do you ensure your website displays correctly across device types and screen sizes? The solution was first proposed by Ethan Marcotte, when he explored ways to make website designs responsive, i.e. have them change according to the screen size.

    Early on in my design career as a junior web designer, I had an interview for one of the largest travel companies in the world. As part of the interview process, I had to redesign the homepage of one of their many travel sites. I was only given an hour, so I made sure every decision I made aligned with the brief, even for elements they hadn’t even thought about. As you can imagine, the design didn’t look too good as I only had an hour. It ended up looking more like a rough concept, but because I was able to explain every part of my work, I gained trust with the interviewers and landed the…

  • Design by Writing

    Tom Kenny
    15 Oct 2014 | 11:22 am
    Writing is one of the most overlooked skills by designers. I can understand why as it isn’t immediately obvious how much it can help, so my job in this week’s article is to show you how it can assist you in your design work. Designing Inspect Element Elements of the new Inspect Element homepage were basically designed in my head while walking down the street. That sounds strange but I wrote everything down in as much detail as possible on the spot as soon as the ideas entered my head (I capture everything in Evernote. It’s my second brain!). This process made it so much…

    Sometimes design ideas come easy, usually accompanied by the feeling of being on top of the world but this isn’t always the case. Far from it. If you can form great design ideas quickly and easily every single time, I would love to know your secret! What happens when we don’t knock it out of the park on our first attempt? It can often be hard and frustrating. When it happens to me, I sometimes even question myself as a designer, although that’s the extreme case. What I normally do to get out of this hole, is experiment. I basically try a number of different things to see what works. It…
  • The Benefits of Being Able to Explain Every Design Decision You Make

    Tom Kenny
    2 Oct 2014 | 6:59 am
    Early on in my design career as a junior web designer, I had an interview for one of the largest travel companies in the world. As part of the interview process, I had to redesign the homepage of one of their many travel sites. I was only given an hour, so I made sure every decision I made aligned with the brief, even for elements they hadn’t even thought about. As you can imagine, the design didn’t look too good as I only had an hour. It ended up looking more like a rough concept, but because I was able to explain every part of my work, I gained trust with the interviewers and landed the…

    Are you struggling with a design but you know there’s some promise to it? Or are you so confident with a design you’re creating that you almost have the feeling it’s going too well? The overnight design test is for you. Constantly looking at the same design you’re working on can cloud your vision on how well the design works or simply how good it looks. Rest, get some sleep and return to it in the morning. This is the closest thing you have to looking at your work with a fresh pair of eyes. You’ll be able to asses it with a fresh mind to better judge the quality of your work. Use…

    I’ve had numerous run-ins with the police in Thailand, and police in other South East Asia countries during my time living in this part of the world. I’ve been taken advantage of a few times in retrospect when I first arrived in Thailand due to my American relationship with the police (that is, you trust the police as a whole in America and do not stand up to an officer – you need to with Thai Police…unless you’re doing something stupid).

It is often tough.It is sometimes very sad. It has its moments of triumph and its moments of tragedy. I’ve been doing some thinking about my current relationship, how many times she would have been “justified” in leaving me. How many times I would have been “justified” in leaving her.

    Your thoughts help shape your reality. Understanding that is the first step towards fixing an uninspired life filled with a lack of interest. Often when  unhappiness sets in, we feel a void in our life. Something is missing and we’re not sure what. Instead of staring into that void directly to see what is actually missing. We go looking for a quick fixes. In a pointless attempt to fill that void in our lives, we amplify one other area of our life to make up for the lack.

    L20n is a localization framework developed by Mozilla for the Web. It allows localizers to put small bits of logic into localization resources to codify the grammar of the language. L20n’s framework removes the need for developers to thoroughly understand the specifics of a natural language and provides an opportunity for localizers to create better translations. L20n reinvents software localization. Users should be able to benefit from the entire expressive power of a natural language. L20n keeps simple things simple, and at the same time makes complex things possible. You can take…

It’s only content that has some real value that matters, has meaning, and thus, has the “fire” or attractiveness to engage others (whether they are prospective clients or customers, friends or collaborators, political constituencies, or whatever.)

So even if it is technically wrong, it must look like it’s printing money. Just ask Disney about that lemming incident.

  • Build a Custom API to Connect WordPress With Ruby on Rails

    What You'll Be CreatingOnce upon a time, web applications used to be monoliths that did everything all by themselves. These days, not so much. With web services opening up their APIs, developers are moving to using third party applications to handle parts of the functionality—things such as authentication or emailing users.While the most common case is one where you use an API to connect to one of the popular online services (Google, Twitter, and so on) there are times when both of the applications you want to connect are your own.This happened to me some time ago: I had…
  • Design Patterns: The Facade Pattern

    Avinash Zala
    19 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    When it comes to design patterns, you may have questions:Why should we use design patterns in programming? Our code can work just fine without it.To that, my counter question would be: "Would you rather live in a luxurious home, or in a simple establishment with four walls?" After all, both serve our purpose.Generally, we look for a luxurious home because it offers better facilities and requires less maintenance, and maintenance can done with less hassle because the basic groundwork is already there. The same thing applies to programming: Code that employs design patterns is easy to…

    Textures are valuable design resources that can be used as backgrounds to your work or pasted in as overlays to add distressed tones. Anyone with a camera can collect texture resources, with even the latest smart phone cameras being more than capable of capturing high resolution details.

Although creating paths with the pen tool is difficult at first, the process becomes easier with practice and is well worth the effort. Every path is vector-based which means you can scale it larger or smaller without any quality loss. But paths can be very frustrating if you don’t know how to use them. I’d like to cover the process of converting a path into a shape layer. In case you didn’t already know,…

  • How to use UI design patterns

    Alex Ivanovs
    20 Oct 2014 | 1:15 am
    Design patterns are optimal solutions to common design problems. As common problems are tossed around a community and are resolved, common solutions often emerge. Eventually, the best of these rise above the din, self-identify, and become refined until they reach the status of a design pattern. I wouldn’t call a design patern a trend in web design, design patterns seem to be more about looking at how common designs are classified in retrospect, rather than forging new territory or looking to where things are headed. How should you approach UI design patterns? We use design patterns all…

  • 3 fundamentals of responsive design you have to master

    Richa Jain
    17 Oct 2014 | 1:15 am
    A few years ago, it was relatively easy to design and build websites. Websites were simpler, and were viewed on desktops and laptops with little variation in screen sizes. Today with mobile devices taking over viewers’ browsing time, a website can be viewed on a 4.8” smartphone screen, a 5” phablet, a 7” tablet or any size in between. So how do you ensure your website displays correctly across device types and screen sizes? The solution was first proposed by Ethan Marcotte, when he explored ways to make website designs responsive, i.e. have them change according to the screen size.

Back in 2010 Joost already wrote a post called the basis of keyword research in which he states that ‘keyword research is the basis of all search marketing’. At the very least my husband…

    Modern education has become much more advanced with a larger Internet presence than ever before. Colleges and universities basically need a website to promote tuition fees, academics, campus life, and plenty of similar resources. But unfortunately not every college website has been designed with elegance or grace. I’ve organized 30 gorgeous website layouts created for colleges and universities located all over America. These kind of websites often need a lot of content which forces designers to get creative. I hope these examples will provide ample inspiration for anyone designing an…
  • Simple Ideas to Improve Web Design Mockups

    Jake Rocheleau
    17 Oct 2014 | 2:15 am
    The process of designing a full website layout comes in many stages. First is sometimes procrastination followed by sketching or writing down ideas. Then after getting frustrated and trashing all those ideas the process will repeat until a usable concept is born. At this point most designers will move on to actually designing a full webpage mockup. It’s possible to create mockups using any graphic editor like GIMP or Sketch 3 but most designers will stick to Photoshop. PSDs are the most popular choice because they can work within various Adobe products and offer a very quick exporting…

    The vast majority of web designers and web developers have a few choice solutions that they prefer to work with when they wireframe, prototype, build, share, and publish mobile or web apps. Since new tools continuously invade the markets, common sense dictates that we try and see if either of them are head and shoulders above their competition. With this purpose in mind, I went out of my way to find today’s most advanced resources, and present them to you in this article.

  • How To use Large Hero Images in Web Design

    Jake Rocheleau
    14 Oct 2014 | 5:30 am
    With the increasing size of bandwidth caps there is an ability for designers to utilize much larger assets for website layouts. The SVG image format is one such example that has also pushed for browser support. But another common feature is the use of large background images for website headers & landing pages. Often referred to as a hero image, these have become much more prominent over the past decade. I want to provide a quick overview covering the purpose of hero images and why they are beneficial to web designers. It is a relatively simple concept but every UI designer should…

  • A Content-switching Component Built 3 Ways: jQuery, JS, CSS

    Scott O'Hara
    8 Oct 2014 | 11:00 am
    Not too long ago, a friend of mine had constructed a UI component to change a page’s content based on the the current selection of a <select> element. Her code worked, but being new to JavaScript, she had built the component in jQuery and had asked me to help optimize it. While not replicating the code exactly, I’ve created the following example to showcase the type of UI component she was trying to create: [code language="html"] Make a Selection Option 1 Option 2 Option 3 Option 1 Content Option 2 Content Option 3 Content [/code] After optimizing it a bit, here is the jQuery we…
  • Creating Nice Notifications with jQuery

    Notifications are one of the most used features when developing a dynamic website. Whether your application is injecting a snippet of HTML in the web page or it's sending the data of a form filled by a user, your application needs to give some feedback to the users. There are a lot of different techniques you can employ to provide feedback to your users such as alert messages and dialog boxes. In this article, I'll explain how you can integrate nice notifications in your web pages through the use of a jQuery plugin called noty.

    Aurelio De Rosa
    26 Aug 2014 | 11:00 am
    Without any doubt Ajax has taken web development by storm and it's one of the most successful paradigms ever. In my article An Introduction to jQuery’s Shorthand Ajax Methods, I discussed some of jQuery's most used Ajax shorthand methods: $.get(), $.post(), and $.load(). They are convenient methods for making Ajax requests in a few lines of code. Sometimes, we need more control over the Ajax calls we want to make. For example, we want to specify what should happen in case an Ajax call fails or we need to perform an Ajax request but its result is only needed if retrieved within a certain…

    AngularJS is a feature-rich framework for creating single-page web applications, bringing all capabilities that one needs for building rich and interactive apps. One of the key features that Angular brings is the support of animations. We can animate a portion of the application to indicate a change occurring. In my last article I covered the support of CSS animations in Angular applications. In this article, we will see how to leverage JavaScript to animate the AngularJS apps. In Angular, the only difference between CSS and JavaScript animations is their definition. There is no difference in…

    Raise your hand if you've never heard the term Ajax. I’ll bet almost all of you have your arms down, close to their body. Ajax, which originally stood for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, is one of the most used client-side methodologies, helping to create asynchronous websites and web applications. Performing Ajax calls using raw JavaScript is of course possible, but dealing with all the different parts of the code can be a pain. This is even more true if you have to support a prehistoric browser like Internet Explorer 6. Fortunately for us, jQuery provides a set of methods that deal with…

    Over the last few months my friend Chris has been pushing me to create a WordPress theme that would support DIY author website design. I was a little hesitant about this idea because I already had other products I wanted to create in my head.

After a while he created the base design for a template and sent it over to me.

Both Paul Boag and Andrew Clarke have talked frequently about their fights with depression.

  • The Art of Client Filtering

    Amber Weinberg
    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,…
  • Extending Layout Control in WordPress by Combining Shortcodes and Advanced Custom Fields Plugin

    3 Apr 2014 | 1:34 pm
    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,…

    A client of mine wanted to make a horizontal menu that listed all of their categories. Easy enough! But the client was going to have lots of categories, which meant that most would either have to be left out, or the horizontal list of categories was going to have to be multi-line. Not so good. So they asked if I could do something fancy and make an almost-slideshow-like menu with next/prev links to switch between them all. It looked like this: And of course, when clicking the more button: I knew I needed to set up the links in an unordered list in groups of seven. My first challenge was to…

    Chris Spooner’s Photoshop tutorial will show you how to recreate that double exposure effect that’s more commonly achieved in photography. If you’re unfamiliar with the effect, it’s basically details of two or more images superimposed on each other. As Chris says, it’s a relatively simple process but the result depends on matching two complementary photographs or images, such as this lady’s profile and the forest scene below: It’s a marriage between to simple yet striking photos, from which you take their best elements to combine a surreal new image.

    L20n is a localization framework developed by Mozilla for the Web. It allows localizers to put small bits of logic into localization resources to codify the grammar of the language. L20n’s framework removes the need for developers to thoroughly understand the specifics of a natural language and provides an opportunity for localizers to create better translations. L20n reinvents software localization. Users should be able to benefit from the entire expressive power of a natural language.

    Alex Ivanovs

    Design patterns are optimal solutions to common design problems. As common problems are tossed around a community and are resolved, common solutions often emerge. Eventually, the best of these rise above the din, self-identify, and become refined until they reach the status of a design pattern. I wouldn’t call a design patern a trend in web design, design patterns seem to be more about looking at how common designs are classified in retrospect, rather than forging new territory or looking to where things are headed.

  • 3 fundamentals of responsive design you have to master

    Richa Jain
    17 Oct 2014 | 1:15 am
    A few years ago, it was relatively easy to design and build websites. Websites were simpler, and were viewed on desktops and laptops with little variation in screen sizes. Today with mobile devices taking over viewers’ browsing time, a website can be viewed on a 4.8” smartphone screen, a 5” phablet, a 7” tablet or any size in between. So how do you ensure your website displays correctly across device types and screen sizes? The solution was first proposed by Ethan Marcotte, when he explored ways to make website designs responsive, i.e. have them change according to the screen size.

    Let me preface this post by stating right up front that I didn’t write this to make anyone happy but myself. Having said that, I didn’t write it to offend anyone either, I simply wrote it to get a lot of what’s been bugging me out of my busy little head and onto “paper”, so to speak. I also want to say that I did not just sit down and write this as a rant. I’ve been sitting on this for weeks, wanting to make sure that I had my thoughts together in a cohesive way, and I didn’t want it to appear like I was just going off on a tangent without any thought…
  • Protecting Your Website With the Wordfence Security Plugin

    Theresa Sheridan
    22 May 2014 | 5:54 am
    I had been looking at security plugins for my website for quite some time and had installed – and uninstalled – several during the process. I finally settled on the Wordfence Security plugin, and I have to say I am stunned at what could potentially be happening to my website. A common way that hackers get access to WordPress sites is by sending out bots that automatically attempt to log in to your website. The standard admin user name for WordPress in the past was “admin”, so the bots use that and then try computer generated passwords to attempt to log in to your site.

The housing is waterproof with an easy to grip and features a built-in sensor that automatically turns on the camera when you pick it up.

    In world where analytics rules, design is becoming evermore data-driven. Is it something worth paying attention to and are the bonuses of it worth the effort? Getting clear with Data Before getting straight into Data-Driven Design, we have to make sure we understand what data is in this context. Unfortunately, web-related content does not follow any strict design rules. Designers are operating on their own terms and knowledge and that’s why misunderstandings are often inevitable.

    It is all about perception when we talk about ugliness and beauty in web design. My ‘ugly’ may be your ‘beauty’ and vice versa, but how does it happen that many usable websites are ugly for the majority of users? ‘Usability comes first’ is a true rule of website development, but design plays not lesser importance in creating great user experience. Website designers make a huge mistake when focus around usability alone, just because it is thought to be more important for users. Usability and design should go together as CSS and PHP, as Header and Footer, as content and layout. A…

SSL is an encryption protocol that allows for secure communication between parties over the internet. You can tell if a website is running SSL encryption by looking at the URL in your browser. If it starts with HTTPS, then it’s using SSL. Traditionally, SSL has only been necessary on websites that handle sensitive information such as credit card numbers or medical records.

    Introduction Recently, when Google had introduced its new unified messaging platform – Hangouts, it had created some worry and concern about Voice – Google’s web-based telecom services. This worry was abated to a certain extent when Google clarified that the full Voice functionality would be part of Hangouts very soon. The concern took hold when many users had quickly discovered that an update to the App had disabled the ability to make outbound calls from a desktop computer. In the absence of a promise that the functionality would return soon, all sorts of speculation were…

Designers need to understand in what ways their web application is going to make users life easier while understanding their behavior.

  • Performance Is the Gateway to Experience Design

    Tim Wright
    20 Oct 2014 | 9:07 am
    “Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius—and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.” That’s a quote from an essay titled Small Is Beautiful by E.F.

Depending on what you Google, sometimes it says that Einstein originated the quote, but regardless of who actually said it, I think that concept still applies today. Adding more and more design features to a website or application is common practice these days (we’re very excitable…
