Is 'mobile first' already be outdated? - 4 views

  •  
    As always, new fads, discoveries and creativity have at their heart basic principles that are sometimes forgotten or overlooked. Mobile should be part of your creative toolbox, but not necessarily the first one you pick up.

The New Writer's Project - 0 views

  •  
    This is not a ground-breaking site but there are a handful of things they're doing well that demonstrate how much simpler/better our design could be: 1. It's a visually interesting and attractive site without resorting to images sprinkled randomly throughout content. Each images has a home and a purpose. (We've got to move away from treating the web like a print layout where we allow our content folks to intersperse text with images) 2. The text on pages is structured well and utilizes nicely-styled headings and bulleted lists to make it easy to scan/digest lots of content. I also like how the B/W Feature images on the homepage become full color on hover. A nice touch. Also, nice use of white space to avoid overwhelming.

Sketching For Better Mobile Experiences - 1 views

  •  
    An interesting article on using sketches in the collaboration within a team. While this article concentrates on mobile solutions, sketching can be used for websites as well. A pull-quote from the article: "Learning from sketches is based largely on the ambiguous nature of their representation. (Sketches) do not specify everything and lend themselves to, and encourage, various interpretations that were not consciously integrated into them by their creator."

JISC infoKits - 0 views

  •  
    I came to this site via a Tweet about the "Evaluating digital services" infoKit which is pretty interesting. So are the others! "Our infoKits contain a wealth of 'self-help' material, from simple methodologies to manage projects, risks, change and processes; to image galleries of technology-rich spaces and reflections from leaders to learners showcasing the inspiring use of technology across the sectors."

    Very helpful. Thanks for sharing.

SurveyMonkey CEO Gets Home By 5:30 PM - 0 views

  •  
    Thought the Team would enjoy. Very few people on their death bed have said, "I should have spent more time at work." FROM THE WEBSITE: SurveyMonkey has been profitable from almost day one and refuses to go public. SurveyMonkey has done all of this while creating a culture that enables the company's CEO, Dave Goldberg, to leave the office by 5:30 p.m.

  • be powerful tools when working with clients on website design and discovery projects.

Use this kit to help control scope and manage your client conversations, or simply use it as a tool for developing designs and websites faster.
  •

Zurb Uses Kia RWD as a Good Example. Yikes. - 1 views

  •  
    Zurb story here: http://zurb.com/responsive/reading Kia's site is: http://www.kia.com Number 6 is Kia's new RWD. I went to the kia.com site and the RWD was pretty awful. * MIN WIDTH: -- images and text are blurry. -- horizontal nav completly disappears. -- the 3 stacked horizontal bars that should pull up a menu.....don't. They drop the main page and you're stuck facing a carousel and some monumental horizontal and vertical scrolling to see only models of vehicles. * MAX WIDTH: -- they don't have a max width and try to stretch into infinity. Stretched across 2 or 3 of my displays and I have the full site.....blurry. * MOBILE SITE: -- it's a mini-version of the main desktop site. -- this works well on the iPad in both vertical and horizontal orientation. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I've seen great RWD when the min- and max-width are defined and the three horizontal bars become what used to be the horizontal navigation. But Kia's desktop RWD fall short in my opinion. If anyone ever reads this, I wonder what their impressions would be.

Wacom's Branding Statement - 1 views

  •  
    I'm sure we're all familiar with Wacom, but I'm not sure if everyone realizes how HUGE and IMPORTANT they are. I mention this because Wacom is not just a company that produces the little tablets we see on people's desks. They provide THE tools of choice for the movie industry, television industry, vehicle companies and huge business to business entities. The little Wacom tablet and stylus I have at home and on my desk at work are not the main streams of income for this company. I wanted to clarify this because their Branding Statement reflects the ideals of a huge, worldwide, trend-setting company that is the leader in ALL of their product categories. Here is a link to their PDF download of their Branding Statement (you may have to cut and paste the URL below): https://dfsoyk1v2p32a.cloudfront.net/us/~/media/Files/PDFs/Our%20Business/Company_brochures_EN_20131225.pdf?vs=1&d=20131226T080604

Project Mighty & Project Napoleon. - 2 views

  •  
    Adobe's Project Mighty and Project Napoleon are cloud enabled hardware. They enable a designer to carry his style anywhere he can access Adobe's cloud. Mighty is the stylus. Napoleon is the "shape tool". The stylus, among other things, can create a Kuler color profile from your iPhone, then paste that profile onto your iPad. You can cut & paste across multiple devices. The future of design is giving designers the ability to create at the same professional quality while on the road as they do when there at their desks.

Professional Branding Creates A Logo for Adonit, an Austin Company - 3 views

  •  
    PLEASE READ THIS FOR TIS BRANDING PURPOSES: This Austin company took EIGHT MONTHS to create their logo. They had their branding and creative statements already completed. I will be e-mailing, a second time, to everyone the branding document I created for TIS. Aaron asked that everyone be prepared to talk about the TIS branding for the 13 March, Thursday, TIS staff meeting.

Responsive Inspector - Chrome Extension - 1 views

  •  
    This is a Chrome extension that will resize your browser window to the break points in the code of the current site you are viewing. Those sites without breakpoints show a blank window in the extension. Responsive Inspector is helpful to see all of the breakpoints a particular site uses. Some have several breakpoints, other sites have just a few. It's a good learning tool. It's a wee bit buggy sometimes, but it's being updated regularly. If this link does not work, just search for "Responsive Inspector" in the Chrome browser Extensions.
