The week is coming to an end and that means it is time for us to look back on the week that passed, the best design news, resources and other goodies. This week we look at how you can implement Responsive Web Design, four things media companies must do in 2013, different design elements to optimize your blog, as well as how you can make sure your animations are triggering at the right time.
Beyond any question, responsive web design has become the standard for anybody who wants to make a strong presence on the internet. With the passage of time, rules, best practices, layout standards and guidelines have been commonly created, implemented and accepted by most web designers and developers.
Adaptive design. It’s one of the big buzzwords in digital media right now, but what does it mean? Nick Davison, director of web development for ad firm Digitaria, has come up with the quickest explanation we’ve ever seen, not only for adaptive design, but for static, liquid and responsive designs as well. Best of all, it’s almost completely visual.
One of the main unacknowledged problems with today’s websites is that many just follow the favorite design of the month. When Flash was born, we got bombarded by Flash-based sites that took forever to load. When sliding banners came along, almost everybody wanted to have one too.
After all the buzz involving the HTML5 CSS3 duo, it is nice to check how websites are using all the good practices you can get from HTML5. When the buzz around the subject started, we could see a lot of websites totally animated. Now, after all the benefits of HTML5 settled, we can see websites taking advantage of it to create smooth transitions, nice image sliders and subtle animations. It is interesting to see the evolution of practices in this matter and that is why today we gathered some examples of websites using HTML5. Enjoy!
Don’t Forget to participate in a contest where you can win the world’s biggest UI elements pack “Impressionist User Interface Elements Pack” for 3 winners (1 developer license and 2 personal license) to design your project more creatively.
Mobile responsive web designs have become extremely popular in the last 2 years, and with a very good reason. As such it’s common to see more code snippets published on the blogosphere, Github repositories, Codepen docs and more.
When we redeveloped our new website, we decided to use CSS3 animations to provide an impressive and interactive site experience. However, we struggled to time the animations to trigger at the right time.
Once again we have gathered a very useful and helpful collection of detailed tutorial for PSD to HTML conversion. Today, every designers, web developers or blogger should know how to convert PSD files to HTML code. This technique is very important for them because with this technique they can easily convert their designs into active blogs or websites. And also this technique makes their work easy and save their valuable time too.
