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 responsive web designs, a scientific approach to web design as well as how to create beautiful apps and much more.
Web designing is the process of integrating new stuff into the design to make the web pages more attractive with the use of latest tools and application. The real challenge is to make use of these available resources to save time and effort, but at the same time you have to still produce the responsive web designs. Over the past few years, web designing and development has grown rapidly and a lot of people started this field as their professional career.
If we observe the stats and analytics report, it can be said that the adoption of mobile devices is skyrocketing along with the increasing diversity of smart devices including Smartphones, iPad, tablets, etc. This multi-device market is bolstering the mindshare for responsive web designs.
A polarity found in most work is the balance between logic and intuition. Web design along with most artistic endeavors favor creativity. Yet the process of actually coding and structuring a website is primarily logic-driven. Does this mean the design process can only be viewed as a creative touchy-feely kinda process? Not exactly, because most designers I know hate to be touched or feel emotions.
The future of Photoshop as an essential tool used by web designers to stylize websites has come under some debate in recent days. Many people in the web designing industry have argued that Photoshop won’t be the first choice software for designers in the years to come.
Ever wondered how computer programming works, but haven’t done anything more complicated on the web than upload a photo to Facebook? Then you’re in the right place. To someone who’s never coded before, the concept of creating a website from scratch — layout, design, and all — can seem really intimidating. You might be picturing the Harvard students from The Social Network, sitting at their computers with gigantic headphones on and hammering out code, and think to yourself, I could never do that.
Wireframing for websites, web apps, and mobile apps that you make is as vital as laying the foundations of a tall building before moving on to its walls and roof. Web designers and web developers really need to pay attention during this stage, and perfect the user experience of your app/website with thorough prototype testing tools. I put together a list of cutting edge resources for prototyping and app creation in general, that might come in handy.
It’s one thing for Microsoft to use its computers in sophisticated ways to lay out content elegantly. Today a little startup called TheGrid is revealing a related service for automatically designing webpages using what it describes as artificial intelligence. TheGrid, which last year raised more than $115,000 in a Kickstarter campaign, today announced that it’s running on a considerably heftier $3.1 million seed round.
Web developers as well as web designers know the importance of releasing high-quality work, especially in this day and age when they face ever-growing competition on the market. Luckily, there are tools and resources they can utilize in order to work faster, more efficiently and even more intelligently. We have put together a list of the best twenty tools and services that will come in handy for web developers and designers at all times.
Twenty years ago, I was sitting at my computer at my job as an Electrical Engineer for the Navy in September and October of 1994 playing around with FTP a system called Gopherwhen I came across a application call Mosaic which was a “browser” for the “world wide web”. I sounded interesting, so I downloaded it and started exploring. I didn’t find too much of interest.
Tablets, mobile phones, and even lighter, easy-to-carry laptops are in the hands of more and more people as time passes and technology advances. By the year 2015, there will be more mobile users than desktop users, which means it’s increasingly important for companies to transition their focus toward mobile internet users.
