The Impossible Project

We aim to re-start production of analog INTEGRAL FILM for vintage Polaroid cameras in 2010!! uhuuu to feliz! :)
A group of men, setting out to revive a Polaroid factory. I once visited the factory in Enschede as a courier and must say it felt a little sacred.
A team of Dutch engineers is trying to re-invent the good ol' white-framed Polaroid snaps.
"We aim to re-start production of analog INTEGRAL FILM for vintage Polaroid cameras in 2010. We have acquired Polaroid's old equipment, factory and seek your support."

Grandma's Graphics: Unique Images from the Past

From Harry Clarke to 1890's storybooks, if you're looking for unique images or clipart for use on your web pages or in other design or craft projects you've come to the right place. There's a treasury here at Grandma's Graphics that you probably won't find anywhere else online. Some of these graphics are quite large and take time to load, but be patient, they're worth the wait.

More Web Design Trends For 2009
Last week we presented 10 Web Design Trends For 2009, our review of the most promising developments and techniques in web design that may become big in 2009. In the first part we covered embossing letters (”letterpress”), rich user interfaces, PNG transparency, big typography, carousels and media blocks. This post is the second part of our review. It presents design trends for 2009 in terms of layouts, visual approaches and design elements. Please notice that this post showcases trends and developments that were extensively covered in our previous articles (e.g. handwriting, retro and vintage etc.) and therefore weren’t covered in this post (they are all linked in the overview, so feel free to explore these single posts as well). Did you miss any recent development in this overview? Let us know in the comments!

A List Apart: Articles: Elevate Web Design at the University Level
http://www.alistapart.com/articles/elevatewebdesignattheuniversitylevel
Web education is out of date and fragmented. There are good people working hard to change this, but because of the structure of higher education, it will take time. As part of a year-long journey to discover where we are in web education and where we need to go, Leslie Jensen-Inman interviewed 32 web design and development leaders. The consensus: technology moves too fast for college and university curricula to keep up. How, then, can educators create a sustainable foundation for the future?
Sponsor an Educator...sounds like a new nonprofit idea to me.

For the first time it occurred to me that Dukkha (the fundamental lack of satisfaction with anything in the physical realm), Anicca (impermanence, lack of any "timeless" principle), and Anatta (lack of "self", or the idea that any object can be complete in and of itself and exist separately from the subject) apply to all things we create."

Tales of the Rampant Coyote: The Black Triangle
http://www.rampantgames.com/blog/2004/10/black-triangle.html
In October of 1994, I’d just started as an honest-to-goodness videogame programmer at a small startup called SingleTrac – which later went on to fame and glory (but unfortunately not much in the way of fortune) with such titles as Warhawk, the Twisted Metal series, and the Jet Moto series. But at the time, the company was less than 20 employees in size and had only been officially in business for about a month. It was sometime in my first week – possibly my first or second day. In the main engineering room, there was a whoop and cry of success. Our company financial controller and acting HR lady, Jen, came in to see what incredible things the engineers and artists had come up with. Everyone was staring at a television set hooked up to a development box for the Sony Playstation. There, on the screen, against a single-color background, was a black triangle.
"We came to refer to certain types of accomplishments as 'black triangles.' These are important accomplishments that take a lot of effort to achieve, but upon completion you don’t have much to show for it."
Sometimes the big victories look pedestrian at first glance.
A great term for those things that take so much effort for seemingly little output.
Black Triangles. They're not just for programmers. (via merlin, via kottke)
sometimes I feel like I'm still trying to get that black triangle to show up...

On August 12, 1982, I took a 10 x 7 1/8 inch National Blank Book Company composition book from the supply closet of my then employer, Vignelli Associates. From that moment, I have never been without one. I always have one at my desk. I take one with me to every meeting. I am now in the middle of Notebook #85. It's in front of me right now. Together, these well-worn books create a history of my working life that spans three decades.

LimeWire Creator Brings Open-Source Approach to Urban Planning | Epicenter from Wired.com
http://blog.wired.com/business/2009/01/mark-gorton-ceo.html
Portland, Oregon has already used his open-source software to plan its bus routes. San Francisco, whose MUNI bus system is a frequent target of criticism, could be next to get the treatment. Gorton says he's in talks with the city to supply transit routing software for MUNI that will do a much better job of keeping track of where people are going and figuring out how best to get them there. San Francisco "overpaid greatly" for a badly-supported proprietary closed-source system that barely works, according to Gorton, putting the city under the thumb of a private company that provides sub-par support.
Entrepreneur Mark Gorton wants to do for people what he already helped do for files: move them from here to there in the most efficient way possible using open-source tools. Gorton, whose LimeWire file sharing software for the open-source gnutella network was at the forefront of the P2P revolution nearly a decade ago, is taking profits earned as a software mogul and spinning them into projects to make urban transportation safer, faster and more sustainable.
"Gorton, whose LimeWire file sharing software for the open-source gnutella network was at the forefront of the P2P revolution nearly a decade ago, is taking profits earned as a software mogul and spinning them into projects to make urban transportation safer, faster and more sustainable."
While public, that data was locked by private software used by public organizations and suffered from an overall lack of standards. Thus was born GeoServer, an open-source, Java-based software server that lets anyone view and edit geo-spatial data. Road information can now be painstakingly imported once from proprietary systems or entered from scratch, double-checked by other users, and rolled out to anyone who needs the data
GOOD » Superb Idea: Bike Lane That Travels With You»
http://www.good.is/?p=14716
this is so cute: a virtual bike lane (using lasers) that displays on the ground around the cyclist, providing drivers with a recognizable boundary they can easily avoid. The idea is to allow riders to take safety into their own hands, rather than leaving it to the city. I want to see one for pedestrians too : )
Awesome. Illuminate your own bike lane with Light lane.
The system projects a virtual bike lane (using lasers!) on the ground around the cyclists, providing drivers with a recognizable boundary they can easily avoid. The idea is to allow riders to take safety into their own hands, rather than leaving it to the city. And just in case you need to be convinced about the need for better cycle saftey, watch this video about the stupidest bike lane in America.

Everything you Know is Wrong! - NETTUTS
http://nettuts.com/videos/screencasts/everything-you-know-is-wrong/
NETTUTS/Themeforest.net guru Jeffrey Way says: "Everything is changing. This weekend, I read a very interesting book: 'Everything You Know About CSS is Wrong'. The book illustrates how, now that IE has passed the ACID 2 test, we can finally begin to build our websites the proper ways. Up until now, we've been forced to implement hacks to form the perfect layout - absolute positioning, precarious floats, etc. But that's all beginning to change! I'll show you how in twenty minutes."

Light Lane - Concept from Altitude’s Alex Tee and Evan Gant « Dustbowl
http://dustbowl.wordpress.com/2009/01/09/light-lane-concept-from-altitudes-alex-tee-and-evan-gant/
Oh, huh, that's cool. Projectable bike lane!
a bike lane that moves with you!
"Only a small fraction of streets have dedicated bike lanes, and with an installation cost of $5,000 to $50,000 per mile, we shouldn’t expect to find them everywhere anytime soon. Instead of adapting cycling to established bike lanes, the bike lane should adapt to the cyclists. This is the idea behind the LightLane. Our system projects a crisply defined virtual bike lane onto pavement, using a laser, providing the driver with a familiar boundary to avoid. With a wider margin of safety, bikers will regain their confidence to ride at night, making the bike a more viable commuting alternative."

Below, we create a range of button types that frequently appear in application interfaces — stand-alone buttons, toggles, and buttons grouped into multi-function toolbars — and use classes from the framework to demonstrate how you can leverage the CSS for non-jQuery elements. We tested the sample markup and the framework CSS to ensure that styles render the same whether the button markup is the actual button form element (<button>), a link (<a>), or any other tag that makes sense for your particular application.

Introduction to Media Design: "Digital Foundations: Introduction to Media Design with the Adobe Creative Suite integrates the formal principles of the Bauhaus Basic Course into an introduction to digital media production with the Adobe Creative Suite. Textbooks and software manuals on today’s market do not include art and design history or visual principles.

See it for yourself in Chapter 5, where we explore Illustrator's Color Picker through Joseph Albers’ color exercises. Digital media texts about Adobe Creative Suite, whether they are “Bibles”, “For Dummies” or “Classroom in a Books”, focus on tools and production tips.

Geeking with Greg: Marissa Mayer at Web 2.0
http://glinden.blogspot.com/2006/11/marissa-mayer-at-web-20.html
The lesson, Marissa said, is that speed matters. People do not like to wait. Do not make them.
On the web, speed matters. I see it with campaigns all the time.
This conclusion may be surprising -- people notice a half second delay? -- but we had a similar experience at Amazon.com. In A/B tests, we tried delaying the page in increments of 100 milliseconds and found that even very small delays would result in substantial and costly drops in revenue.

Derek Powazek - Don’t Work for Assholes
http://powazek.com/posts/1733
the months I spent suffering that fool 12 years ago would have been better spent building my portfolio and hustling to find better clients. All the time you spend working for an asshole is time you’re not spending to find a gig that will, in the long run, pay you better, teach you more, and make you happier.
"Nine times out of ten, the first impression someone gives you is exactly who they are. We choose not to see it because we need the money, or we want the situation to be different. But if someone rubs you the wrong way at the first meeting, chances are, it’s only going to get worse."
It can be very intimidating to turn down work, especially in these uncertain economic times. But the months I spent suffering that fool 12 years ago would have been better spent building my portfolio and hustling to find better clients. All the time you spend working for an asshole is time you’re not spending to find a gig that will, in the long run, pay you better, teach you more, and make you happier.
Crude advice, but very salient. We take the stick because we need the money, but the rude client ends up hitting us over the head with it.
"But the biggest lesson I learned? Don’t work for assholes."

Official Google Blog: Eye-tracking studies: more than meets the eye

An eye tracking study from Google. However, please note that none of the searches are overly commercial in nature (no top position ads). In almost all G heatmap studies, they only show mostly information searches. Interesting data, but don't assume your ad will not get nice visibility for more commercial based searches.

With only three varieties of plants, we can “grow our own fresh air” indoors, to keep us healthy. Areca Palm, Mother-in-law tongue, Money plant. Bueno!!!!
Ever heard about these plants: (a) Areca Palm, (b) Mother-in-Law's Tongue, or (c) Money Plant? The authors state that, "We have tried and tested these plants for 15 years at Paharpur Business Centre and Software Technology Incubator Park (PBC- STIP) in New Delhi, India. It is a 20 year old, 50,000 ft2 building, with over 1,200 plants for 300 building occupants. PBC- STIP is rated the healthiest building in Delhi by the Government of India.* Their study found that there is a 42% probability of increasing blood oxygen by 1% if one is inside the building for 10 hours."

A New Image Replacement Technique: The State Scope Method [CSS Tutorials]
http://www.sitepoint.com/article/image-replacement-state-scope/
Image replacement is arguably one of the most important CSS-based techniques available to a web designer. While some people view image replacement as merely a way to use fonts absent from the client computer, I believe that’s simply untrue. Image replacement has a place on nearly every web site—it can be useful in displaying a variety of page elements: company logos, attractive navigation bars, and fancy paragraph headings. Most importantly though, is its use for the “call to action” buttons; these must stand out in order to attract a visitor’s attention for performing important tasks (like signing up, downloading, or making a purchase).

Simple scalable CSS based breadcrumbs | Veerle's blog
http://veerle.duoh.com/blog/comments/simple_scalable_css_based_breadcrumbs/
A few days ago I was implementing breadcrumbs in a website I’m working on. Not that I sincerely believe every site needs this, but on some occasions and to some users breadcrumbs are practical. Anyhow, it gave me the idea to write an article about it because it’s been a while since I last wrote about anything CSS-related. The one I’ll share with you is a very simple one. It uses only one simple graphic. The rest is basic CSS styling with an unordered list as HTML code.

Cooper Journal: One free interaction
http://www.cooper.com/journal/2009/01/one_free_interaction.html
Yes! I think a free interaction gives the user experience that special edge.
"One free interaction" is a prospective design pattern that gives software and hardware a more humane feel. It exists outside of task flows and the concept of users as task-doers. Instead it sits in the "in between" spaces, suiting users as fidgeters, communicators, and people who play with things.
Very nice post from Chris Noessel of Cooper Design on the more subtle but no less brilliant elements of iPhone design, as well as other simple, pleasing software highlights
I flip page control on the home screen back and forth, for no apparent reason.
"Since we want our designs to be humane and, presuming they fulfill their utilitarian purposes well, emotionally satisfying, I suggest that designers begin to include one free interaction in their designs to enable the channeling of energy and simple expression."

A List Apart: Articles: Brighter Horizons for Web Education
http://www.alistapart.com/articles/brighterhorizonsforwebeducation
Nuevos horizontes para la educación web
"The Web Standards Project have begun trying to tackle the education issue. Industry experts and veteran educators on the WaSP Education Task Force are currently working to develop the WaSP Curriculum Framework (WCF), a modular curriculum that can be used to improve existing curricula or serve as the foundation for emerging programs. (Disclosure: I’m a member of The Web Standards Project, an educator, and the project lead of the WaSP Curriculum Framework.) The WCF will be released in March of 2009 as a living curriculum that will adapt to changes in the industry so that schools using it can ensure their students are learning the concepts that are relevant to their field of study. The WCF’s first release will contain approximately 14 courses divided into six learning tracks: * Foundations * Front-end Development * Design * Server-side Development * User Science * Professional Practice "
"Building a real relationship between industry and education requires that we answer this question for both parties: 'What’s in it for me?' Whether you’re a practitioner or educator, the answer is the same: graduates who are ready for a career in the web."
Schools that teach web design struggle to keep pace with our industry, and those just starting their curricula often set off in the wrong direction because the breadth and depth of our medium can be daunting.

We’ve compiled a list of 50 free rust metal texture backgrounds that will really look great on your websites, blogs, Twitter backgrounds or even wallpapers.

How the Amish live against tide of technology.
Amish Hackers - Adopting Technology
For the sake of proof-of-concept, I'm glad the Amish exist. "Ivan is an Amish alpha-geek. He is always the first to try a new gadget or technique. He gets in his head that the new flowbitzmodulator would be really useful. He comes up with a justification of how it fits into the Amish orientation. So he goes to his bishop with this proposal: "I like to try this out." Bishop says to Ivan, "Okay Ivan, do whatever you want with this. But you have to be ready to give it up, if we decide it is not helping you or hurting others.""
Great article on the Amish community discernment process for adopting technology. Dispels a lot of myths, and gives a lot to think on.
Amish use the web at libraries (using but not owning). From cubicles in public libraries Amish sometimes set up a website for their business. So while Amish websites seem like a joke, there's quite a few of them. What about post-modern innovations like credit cards? A few Amish got them, presumably for their businesses at first. But over time the bishops noticed problems of overspending, and the resultant crippling interest rates. Farmers got into debt, which impacted not only them but the community since their families had to help them recover (that's what community and families are for). So, after a trial period, the elders ruled against credit cards. One Amish-man told me that the problem with phones, pagers, and PDAs (yes he knew about them) was that "you got messages rather than conversations." That's about as an accurate summation of our times as any. Henry, his long white beard contrasting with his young bright eyes told me, "If I had a TV, I'd watch it."

5 obscure HTML tags
With the rising popularity of CSS for styling, many web developers and users alike have become alienated from the good old HTML tags. Only a handful of these tags are used in the markup of web pages today. Most of them have got limited representation and some of them are entirely forgotten.

A List Apart: Articles: The Details That Matter
http://www.alistapart.com/articles/thedetailsthatmatter
A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, the graphic arts industry was populated by full-time illustrators, production assistants and compositors. With only composing sticks for laying out type, straight edges for defining grids, a human proofer to catch spelling mistakes and an arsenal of X-acto blades for making edits, these guys lived and breathed detail. Mistakes were costly. It was a trade position that required lengthy apprenticeship; job security depended on getting all of the little things right.

How (Not) to Write like a Designer: 5 Tricks You Didn't Learn in Studio ...
Half technical, half intuitive, the design process is tough to explain. But that’s my job—I’m a design writer. I write so you don’t have to, putting into words the work that you’d rather do than write about. But write you must—website copy, proposals, captions, emails to clients—and though the worse designers are at it, the more work I get, in the spirit of collaboration I’m going to share my secrets. So what if it puts me out of a job.

"Despite the ubiquity of reading on the web, readers remain a neglected audience. Much of our talk about web design revolves around a sense of movement: users are thought to be finding, searching, skimming, looking."
The best readers are obstinate. They possess a nearly inexhaustible persistence that drives them to read, regardless of the circumstances they find themselves in

SimpleBits ~ How I Might Deal with IE6
http://www.simplebits.com/notebook/2009/02/13/iegone.html
Eight years ago (almost to the day), Jeffrey Zeldman wrote, To Hell With Bad Browsers, signaling the dawning of “The CSS Age”. Explaining how the use of @import for referencing stylesheets is ignored by Netscape 4, was an important step in shedding away the problems related to supporting an ancient browser. Eight. Years. Completely ignoring a browser in terms of CSS is a wonderfully freeing thing. It certainly can’t be done on every site. The important thing to remember is that it’s a site’s statistics that should determine what level of support you decide to offer.

The two creative parties developed an interface that lets kids and adults alike build a virtual playground step-by-step using various accessories and colors. The site was initially conceived as a contest where the top vote-getter will have their design actually built within Jesse Owens Park on Chicago's South Side. While the winners won't be announced until March, the public can nonetheless view a gallery of entries for inspiration and try their hand at building a playground all their own

What Fonts Are Websafe in 2009? - SitePoint Forums
http://www.sitepoint.com/forums/showthread?t=600738
The 'font ecosystem' changes so slowly that it's not hard to go years without taking those gradual changes into consideration. Each new version of MS Office, each new release OS X brings with it a new kit bag of available fonts. Although there are plenty of reasons to grumble about the way CSS handles type, it does have a few redeeming features. Font stacks is one of them.

Estúdio Alice
http://www.estudioalice.com.br/
Ilustração do cartaz de fim de ano, ou de um ano (e pouco) do estúdio Alice. Chegamos ao consenso de que seriam presentes, destinados aos nossos clientes, fornecedores e amigos, mas ainda não sabemos se foi uma ação de fim de ano, natal ou de aniversário. Talvez seja um pouco disso tudo. Através da imagem do cartaz pensamos em relacionar a Alice (enquanto personagem) a uma série de referências. Como se a Alice, que na imagem aparece somente as pernas, representasse uma mulher muito bonita (deixando o expectador na curiosidade) mas cheia de idéias e referências ao seu redor. Prontas para serem usadas e aplicadas. Além do pôster foi feito um chaveiro, uma camiseta e uma caixinha com o rosto do Papai Noel (ou não, há controvérsias).

Good design: The ten commandments of Dieter Rams
http://www.vitsoe.com/en/gb/about/gooddesign
diseñador de braun en los 60s
Genius: "The aesthetic quality of a product – and the fascination it inspires – is an integral part of the its utility."
Back in the early 1980s, Dieter Rams was becoming increasingly concerned by the state of the world around him – “an impenetrable confusion of forms, colours and noises.” Aware that he was a significant contributor to that world, he asked himself an important question: is my design good design? As good design cannot be measured in a finite way he set about expressing the ten most important criteria for what he considered was good design. Subsequently they have become known as the ‘Ten commandments’. Here they are.

Eric's Archived Thoughts: Wanted: Layout System
http://meyerweb.com/eric/thoughts/2009/02/17/wanted-layout-system/
Not surprisingly, there was a lot of community feedback asking for better layout mechanisms. Actually, people were asking for any decent layout mechanism at all, which CSS has historically lacked. Floats mostly work, but they’re a hack and can be annoyingly fragile even when you ignore old-browser bugs. Positioning works in limited cases, but does not handle web-oriented layout at all well.
ERic Meyers grundsätzliche Gedanke über ein Layoutsystem für Webseiten.
Eric Meyer elaborates on why we need a better layout mechanism for web content (whether it be via CSS or not). We know we shouldn't use tables for layout. Floats are a hack, positioning is flawed, and <code>display:table-cell</code> is no better than using a table itself. But Eric explains here why table <em>behavior</em> works moderately well for layout: <blockquote>... this is why the old “only use tables for layout” argument keeps coming up over and over: strip away the overheated rhetoric and obvious link-baiting, and you find the core of a real need. Because as powerful as CSS can be, table cells do certain things very easily that CSS makes very, very hard. Cells stretch vertically, keeping equal heights as a matter of their intrinsic nature. They stay out of each others’ way, while still being allowed to sit next to each other and use any sizing dimensions. They tie their layout to their parent elements, and vice versa.</blockquote>
Turning a bunch of divs or list items or whatever into table-role boxes is no better than just using table markup in the first place, and it’s arguably worse. Using element names other than table and td to create layout tables, and then claiming it’s not using tables for layout, borders on self-deception.

Rands In Repose: A Twitter Decision
http://www.randsinrepose.com/archives/2009/02/09/a_twitter_decision.html
In starting a significant project, an engineer knows the first three big design decisions you make are vastly more important than the second three. The nature of these decisions varies from project to project. They may be choices about look and feel, rules about architecture, or trade offs regarding feature set. Whatever these decisions are, they set a tone that defines the success of the project. When I look at Twitter, I see three early essential decisions about how Twitter allows you to craft a community. I believe much of Twitter’s continued success is due to definition and execution of these decisions. Interestingly, some obvious candidates for the Top 3, like “Scales like crazy”, “Will generate money”, and “Needs to be searchable” weren’t initially there.
For me, a tweet is still a note I tie to a balloon, which I let go and think, “Who is going to read that one?” Sometimes I look and see where it ended up, sometimes I don’t.
For me, Twitter remains a place for casual information. For me, a tweet is still a note I tie to a balloon, which I let go and think, “Who is going to read that one?” Sometimes I look and see where it ended up, sometimes I don’t.

Fabulous slideshare presentation by Matt Jones about city magic drawing connections between urbanisation and digitalisation.
so cool
It's about technology and the city. Or if you'd like, the city as technology. The car changed the development of the city irreversibly in the 20th century. I'd claim that mobiles will do the same in the 21st.
hackers are building sensors, bots and software into everything around them bottom-up, fast, cheap and out-of-control. They're creating environments that react, adapt and respond to us - and perhaps more importantly - each other: The Demon-Haunted World. Matt's session will be a whistlestop tour of those days of future past and pointers to some practical futures we can start building right now, together.

Before I get too far along in a discussion of prototyping, it's probably worth exploring what I'm talking about. In the world of designing interactive products and services, prototype is generally defined as some representation of a design idea. In the world of physical products, the term tends to connote something quite similar to the finished manufactured form. Indeed, industrial designers use the term model to describe what interaction designers think of as a prototype.

Imagine an artwork without type - you can only make assumptions what the graphics are trying to deliver. Type enhance and ensure you get whatever message the campaign is delivering. Typography design on the other hand, is what many designers are striving to improve and excel. Getting to the next level in typography design, at most of the time, may be tricky and challenging. Font, colors, style, keywords and placements are all the crucial factors to form a great typography design.

Matt Jones's current thoughts on location-based services and the value of "nearish" over "here".
Matt Jones of dopplr de-bunks the b-chino'd hype surrounding in the moment location based apps. Love it.
Perhaps the idea of showing where you are exactly now isn't so good afterall - it's more relevant to talk about where I'll be soon so you can react to it accordingly.

But what about a site's physical appearance? Does the aesthetic appearance of a blog affect what's written by the site's commenters? My sense is that the establishment of social norms through moderation, both by site owners and by the community itself, has much more of an impact on the behavior of commenters than the visual design of a site but aesthetics does factor in somewhat. Perhaps the poor application of a default MT or Wordpress template signals a lack of care or attention on the part of the blog's owner, leading readers to think they can get away with something. Poorly designed advertising or too many ads littered about a site could result in readers feeling disrespected and less likely to participate civilly or respond to moderation. Messageboard software is routinely ugly; does that contribute to the often uncivil tone found on web forums?

70 New, Useful AJAX And JavaScript Techniques
As the Web grows and becomes more dynamic, more and more websites have user-generated content and tools that greatly improve the user experience in terms of usability and accessibility. Interactive solutions for lightboxes, form validation, navigation, upload, auto-complete, image cropping, slideshows, tool tips, sliders and tables are being developed that use nifty JavaScript and AJAX scripts. When using these, developers have to carefully consider many subtle techniques to help users get things done. In this article, we present 70 new and useful JavaScript and AJAX techniques, all of which are of the highest quality and are more or less easy to configure. You will also find some very useful but better known techniques to use on almost any project you work on. jQuery, MooTools, Prototype and script.aculo.us are used in these examples, so every taste gets its due.

How to be a program manager - Joel on Software

The number one mistake most companies make is having the manager of the programmers writing the specs and designing the product. This is a mistake because the design does not get a fair trial, and is not born out of conflict and debate, so it’s not as good as it could be.

http://www.brepettis.com/blog/2009/3/3/the-cult-of-done-manifesto.html
The Cult of Done Manifesto 1. There are three states of being. Not knowing, action and completion. 2. Accept that everything is a draft. It helps to get it done. 3. There is no editing stage. 4. Pretending you know what you're doing is almost the same as knowing what you are doing, so just accept that you know what you're doing even if you don't and do it. 5. Banish procrastination. If you wait more than a week to get an idea done, abandon it. 6. The point of being done is not to finish but to get other things done. 7. Once you're done you can throw it away. 8. Laugh at perfection. It's boring and keeps you from being done. 9. People without dirty hands are wrong. Doing something makes you right. 10. Failure counts as done. So do mistakes. 11. Destruction is a variant of done. 12. If you have an idea and publish it on the internet, that counts as a ghost of done. 13. Done is the engine of more.

5 Simple Ways to Improve Web Typography | Webdesigner Depot

Type is one of the most-used elements of the web. Think about it. Unless you are YouTube or Flickr, chances are your site visitors are coming for your text content - not the fancy packaging that surrounds it. So why are web designers still treating text like a secondary element? Good typography brings order to the page and increases legibility. It allows people to process information faster.

Reading anything on the Internet has become a full-on nightmare. As media outlets attempt to eke out as much advertising revenue as possible, we're left trying to put blinders on to mask away all the insanity that surrounds the content we're trying to read. It's almost like listening to talk radio, except the commercials play during the program in the background. It's a pretty awful experience. Our friend to date has been the trusty "Print View" button. Click it and all the junk goes away. I click it all the time and rarely print. It's really become the "Peace & Quiet" button for many.

These experiments were created by designers and programmers from around the world. Their work is making the web faster, more fun, and more open – the same spirit in which we built Google Chrome. Naturally, if you've made something fun and fast with JavaScript, please send it in. We can't post everything, but we'd love to see it. Thanks for visiting, and happy experimenting.

The result: a revolutionary device that works as both a netbook and a standalone tablet thanks to a detachable keyboard and a 3D touchscreen user interface."

Get Wireframing: The All-In-One Guide | Hi, I'm Grace Smith
http://www.gracesmith.co.uk/get-wireframing-the-all-in-one-guide/
Wireframing is a great tool to incorporate into your projects as it allows for rapid prototyping and helps to pinpoint any potential problems. I personally find it invaluable on projects to have a visual representation of content, hierarchy and layout. Overall it’s an excellent step to incorporate into your project before the design process begins for both you and your clients.

Mega Drop-Down Navigation Menus Work Well (Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox)
http://www.useit.com/alertbox/mega-dropdown-menus.html
Big, two-dimensional drop-down panels group navigation options to eliminate scrolling and use typography, icons, and tooltips to explain the user's choices.
Don't make response time too fast, though: the mouse should remain stationary for 0.5 seconds before you display anything that's hover-dependent, such as a mega drop-down or a tooltip. Violating this guideline will make the screen flicker insufferably when users move the mouse. Only after 0.5 seconds of resting the pointer on a navbar item can you assume that a user actually wants to see its associated drop-down. Thus, the timing should be: 1. Wait 0.5 seconds. 2. If the pointer is still hovering over a navbar item, display its mega drop-down within 0.1 seconds. 3. Keep showing it until the pointer has been outside both the navbar item and the drop-down for 0.5 seconds. Then, remove it in less than 0.1 seconds.
Summary: Big, two-dimensional drop-down panels group navigation options to eliminate scrolling and use typography, icons, and tooltips to explain the user's choices.

Object-oriented programming was supposed to unify the perspectives of the programmer and the end user in computer code: a boon both to usability and program comprehension.

White Space: How to Get it ‘Right’ | Think Vitamin
http://thinkvitamin.com/features/white-space-how-to-get-it-right/
Active and Passive White Space White Space is often used to create a balanced, harmonious layout. One that just ‘feels’ right. It can also be used to take the reader on a journey through the design. In the same way a photographer leaves ‘looking room’ in a portrait shot, by positioning the subject o! the centre of the frame and having them looking into the remaining space, a designer can do this to increase the effectiveness of their design. Another way of looking at white space is by how a reader, or user, reacts to it. White space can not only be used by the designer to create harmony and balance in design, or to help position a brand, but it can be used to lead a reader from one element to another. This is called Active White Space

The Positive Legacy of C++ and Java

In a recent discussion, there were assertions that C++ was a poorly-designed language. I was on the C++ Standards Committee for 8 years, and saw the decisions take place. I think it's helpful to understand the language choices for both C++ and Java in order to see the bigger perspective.

How To Successfully Compete With Open Source Software

That is the main purpose of offering customer support — decreasing the perceived risk of using your software by demonstrating that there is a safety net. (This is one reason you should write your support page with an eye to it being seen by someone who isn’t even using your software.)
2) Design OSS projects, particularly the 99% that are relevant to this discussion, routinely do not allocate resources to creating attractive designs. For whatever reason, opened source graphical work is still rather rare, most developers (myself included) have the artistic skill of inept mole rats, and the obvious pay-somebody-who-does-it-better solution runs into the problem that the typical OSS project has no budget and no patience to deal with “unfree” licenses, which are the only kind commercially available stock icons have.

Standalone versions of IE6 (and any version back to v3.0) can be downloaded from the evolt.org browser archive. XP users can simply extract the files and create a shortcut to iexpore.exe. Unfortunately, they do not work in Vista. An alternative is the Xenocode Browser Sandbox which provides IE6, IE7, IE8, Firefox 2, Firefox 3, Chrome, Opera and Safari. These are single .exe files that use virtualization technology to ensure the browser runs in its own segregated environment without affecting your core system.

Illustrator is a wonderful tool. It is often underused, and also a bit underestimated. I think sometimes people can be having so much fun in Photoshop, that they forget all of the awesome things Illustrator can accomplish. So today I’m bringing you a big list of Illustrator tutorials, tricks and tips. I start out with pretty basic tutorials and tips, because it is important to have a good foundation. But, don’t worry, they get much more complex :) And keep in mind when your reading these tutorials, it’s all about picking up on new and interesting processes, techniques, and ideas that you may not have tried yet. Even if you are an experienced Illustrator user, it never hurts to learn new techniques and refresh your memory on some old ones. So I’m hoping you enjoy, and find this useful.

Key factors: The organization's mission, goals, objectives, and work. How it uses donations and contributions.
"Non-profits would collect much more from their websites if only they'd clearly state what they are about and how they use donations. Our new usability studies revealed considerable frustration as potential donors visited sites and tried to discern various organizations' missions and goals — which are key factors in their decisions about whether to give money."

Who'd have thought it.. Google runs of thousands of 12-volt batteries :o) Each Google server has its own 12-volt battery to supply power if there's a problem with the main source of electricity. The company also revealed for the first time that since 2005, its data centers have been composed of standard shipping containers--each with 1,160 servers and a power consumption that can reach 250 kilowatts. ...

Monopoly Killer: Perfect German Board Game Redefines Genre
http://www.wired.com/gaming/gamingreviews/magazine/17-04/mf_settlers
'One of the driving factors in Settlers—and one of the secrets to its success—is that nobody has reliable access to all five resources. This means players must swap cards to get what they need, creating a lively and dynamic market, which works like any other: If ore isn't rolled for several turns, it becomes more valuable. "Even in this tiny, tiny microcosm of life, scarcity leads to higher prices, and plenty leads to lower prices," says George Mason University economist Russ Roberts, who uses Settlers to teach his four children how free markets work. Wheeling and dealing turns out to be an elegant solution to one of the big problems plaguing Monopoly—sitting idle while other players take their turns. Since every roll of the dice in Settlers has the potential to reap a new harvest of resource cards, unleash a flurry of negotiations, and change the balance of the board, every turn engages all the players. "The secret of Catan is that you have to bargain and sometimes whine."'
In 1991, Klaus Teuber was well on his way to becoming one of the planet's hottest board game designers. Teuber (pronounced "TOY-burr"), a dental technician living with his wife and three kids in a white row house in Rossdorf, Germany, had created a game a few years earlier called Barbarossa and the Riddlemaster, a sort of ur-Cranium in which players mold figures out of modeling clay while their opponents try to guess what the sculptures represent. The game was a hit, and in 1988 it won the Spiel des Jahres prize—German board gaming's highest honor. Winning some obscure German award may not sound impressive, but in the board game world the Spiel des Jahres is, in fact, a very, very big deal. Germans, it turns out, are absolutely nuts about board games. More are sold per capita in Germany than anywhere else on earth.

40 Comics Strips for Web Designers | Webdesigner Depot

With the massive exodus towards online publishing, many people hardly reach for the newspaper these days. If there’s one thing I truly miss from the newspaper, it would be reading the comic strips. There’s something magical about comic strips that seems to lighten your day and make you feel good. There’s certainly something to be said about starting your day with a bit of humor. I figured that we’re so immersed in the Internet that it would be cool to compile a list of funny strips related to web design, the Internet and of course blogging. Take a few minutes from your busy day to relax, have some fun and see how many of these situations relate to you… :)

10 Simple and Impressive Design Techniques | How-To | Smashing Magazine
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/04/02/10-impressive-simple-design-techniques/
Complex design techniques are often time-consuming and, well, complex. Some of these advanced effects can add plenty of depth to designs, but when used in the wrong place, they do little more than distract viewers from the project’s intended focus. These effects may be precisely what a design needs to have the impact it requires, but even in these cases, they should be complemented by simpler effects. Simple effects and techniques are the building blocks of today’s designs. For example, what good is a stellar lighting technique if you can’t decide which colors to use or which text-based effects to use in conjunction with the effect? With a “less is more” mentality, we’ve selected 10 very simple and impressive design techniques that can drastically improve the performance and appearance of your designs.

http://daringfireball.net/2009/04/complex
John Gruber on #iphone http://bit.ly/Gp4hX [from http://twitter.com/igeeo/statuses/1437949138]
"The problem is that while successful complex systems evolve from simple systems that work, not every simple system that works can support additional complexity. It’s not enough just to start simple, you have to start simple with a framework designed for future evolution and growth."
“A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple system that worked. The inverse proposition also appears to be true: A complex system designed from scratch never works and cannot be made to work. You have to start over, beginning with a working simple system.”

Findings from the A LIST APART Survey, 2008
As we did in 2007, A List Apart and you teamed up to shed light on precisely who creates websites. Where do we live? What kind of work do we do? What are our job titles? How well or how poorly are we paid? How satisfied are we, and where do we see ourselves going?
Findings from one of the best non-profit web think-tanks - Stats on working in the web industry.
As we did in 2007, A List Apart and you teamed up to shed light on precisely who creates websites. Where do we live? What kind of work do we do? What are our job titles? How well or how poorly are we paid? How satisfied are we, and where do we see ourselves going? In 2008, 30,055 readers took part in the A List Apart Survey. Once more, data analysts Alan Brickman and Larry Yu crunched numbers this way and that. With a global recession in full swing as of December 2007, we were particularly interested to find out how financially and professionally secure web people felt, and whether there were discernible differences in the way people responded to questions about satisfaction and security in 2008, compared with 2007. This year we also improved our fact-finding on freelance and part-time web personnel. The more things change For 2008, instead of a downloadable (PDF) white paper, we decided to present our findings on the web. Which meant, in addition to compiling and analyzing data and

Table Layouts vs. Div Layouts: From Hell to... Hell? | CSS | Smashing Magazine
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/04/08/from-table-hell-to-div-hell/
Over the last several years, developers have moved from table-based website structures to div-based structures. Hey, that’s great. But wait! Do developers know the reasons for moving to div-based structures, and do they know how to? Often it seems that people are moving away from table hell only to wind up in div hell.

5 Things Your Clients Should Know | Webdesigner Depot
http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2009/03/5-things-your-clients-should-know/
Must read: RT @boagworld: the Web Designer Depot has released my article '5 Things Your Clients Should Know' (http://tinyurl.com/clyusu) [from http://twitter.com/everything_web/statuses/1407774725]
This is not a criticism of clients, however. There is so little information that clearly defines their role. Sure, there is no shortage of material on usability, accessibility, online marketing and copywriting, but who has the time to read all of it? The problem is that the client does need to have a very broad understanding (certainly more than can be communicated in a single article), however I have found that understanding certain key issues can make an enormous difference to the efficiency of a client. What follows is a list of the 5 things that I believe will have the biggest impact on a client’s site. At least they should, if the client understands them and chooses to implement them.

The first one’s the hardest | i love typography, the typography and fonts blog
http://ilovetypography.com/2009/03/23/the-first-ones-the-hardest/
i find it so amazing that people can design fonts. my brain just doesn't work to that level of precision.
I remember clearly the day I was waiting for the 6 train at 33rd Street and Park Avenue in New York. I had taken pictures of type on the street for some time, but there was something here that caught my eye. There was a plastic sign on a door with letters and numbers routed out of plastic, and I noticed a couple of characters in particular: the way the 8 curved back into itself, the charming tail of the a. And then I realized that the lowercase e’s were all different. This had been done by hand and therefore wasn’t an existing typeface. I knew then that I could actually make this into a font.
Here's a captivating, personal article on I Love Typography about the design process of Jeremy Mickel's first commercially available typeface.

Subtraction.com: Dear Designer, You Suck
http://www.subtraction.com/2009/04/09/dear-designer-you-suck
A friend of mine who happens to be a famous designer (this person shall remain nameless) said something not long ago about one of my projects that really pissed me off. At the time, I objected to this person’s tone and delivery, thinking it inappropriate. After all, we’re friends! But given some distance from the event, I realize now that, the formal qualities of the remarks aside, this person had a point. They weren’t necessarily right, mind you, but there was a legitimate criticism at the core, to which I should have paid attention. In retrospect I realize that getting hot and bothered about this person’s tone said something much less flattering about me than about the person.
The notion of speaking openly, honestly and objectively about work is inherent to learning how to be a better X...."This is why art, film and architecture have achieved such great heights in our society: those art forms are economically robust enough to support a vibrant critical class."
"To put a finer point on it: are we being honest with one another?" - also designer zu designern
The importance of honest criticism (in every profession).

Finding the perfect font can be done through trial and error, or you can make your choices based upon the different moods certain fonts help bring to a design
Quality is a word that a lot of people like to use when describing their web design services. But what is quality, how do you know if a design is quality or not. Well, I think that there’s quite a few ways to spot quality within web designs. Once you can see just what goes into making a quality web design, you can use the techniques to perfect your own style. I’ve put together a few pointers, and collected some examples to explain just how I look for quality within a website design.

Applications of usability principles on a social network | creative briefing
http://creativebriefing.com/applications-of-usability-principles-on-a-social-network/
As a result of this, social networks should - I say should because not every social network does this - put greater emphasis on usability over, say, a corporate website. Don’t get me wrong, usability is important everywhere you go on the web, but the nature of a social network’s operation makes usability especially important. This perspective guided my thinking during the redesign of the Daily Challenge beta 2.0 website. Many forks in the road were put to rest at the hands of basic usability principles that dictated righter from wronger (sometimes there was no strictly right or wrong answer). These are the principles that I want to share with you in the following case study of how usability can be applied to a social network

Decorative tape. The new site is stocked with stylish sticky products. Taping up boxes with birds, mod patterns, and lace adds a bit of pleasantry to moving. Snowflakes, trees, and tinsel spruce up boring old cardboard around the holidays. And rolls of cheery mailing labels and envelope wraparounds make trips to the post office less of a chore. The cute stuff doubles as a decorative touch to craft projects (picture frames, headbands) and baked goods (jam jars, cookie tins).

How To Create an Awesome Vector Skate Deck Design | Blog.SpoonGraphics

Example
There’s nothing cooler than designing artwork for a skateboard deck! Follow this walkthrough in Adobe Illustrator to create your own vibrant and stunning vector artwork using geometric lines, shapes and a perfect colour scheme. The result is an awesome deck design ready for wall hanging, or hooking up with trucks and wheels for a session on the street! Skateboard Deck Design Due to the size of skateboard decks it’s much easier on your RAM producing your designs in vector. 33×9inch Photoshop files at 300dpi can soon eat up some memory! Therefore start work by opening up Adobe Illustrator. Depending where your design is being produced the exact board shape can vary slightly, but on average a common 7 ½ inch deck will require artwork at around 33×9inches in size. Head over to ColourLovers.com for some inspiration for a colour palette for the design, the choice here is a crucial part of the process. I’ve picked out this cool selection called brr!!!gght.

CreativeTechs Tips » Convert InDesign files to Microsoft Word.
http://creativetechs.com/tipsblog/convert-indesign-file-to-microsoft-word/
Every graphic designer eventually finds themselves facing this client request. You’ve designed a newsletter layout in Adobe InDesign. The client loves it, but they want a template in Microsoft Word they can edit themselves. CreativeTechs happens to be located in Seattle, just across the lake from the Redmond campus of Microsoft. Needless to say, we get this question a LOT from various graphic designers in our area. There isn’t a perfect solution, but here is a technique that does a surprisingly good job. Conversion Trick: InDesign-to-PDF, then PDF-to-Word. Save your InDesign file as a PDF. Then use a utility to convert that PDF to a Word document (this technique also works with QuarkXPress layouts). While there are many PDF-to-Word converters, here is a service (still in beta) that does a remarkably good job maintaining the layout and editability of the resulting Word files: Link: Online PDF-to-Word Converter (beta) You’ll have to clean up the resulting Word file, but I’ve been p

Typeface Inspired by Comic Books Has Become a Font of Ill Will - WSJ.com

"If you love it, you don't know much about typography," Mr. Connare says. But, he adds, "if you hate it, you really don't know much about typography, either, and you should get another hobby."
the story behind Comic Sans...
The ubiquitous, bubbly typeface has spawned a Ban Comic Sans movement, nearly a decade old but stronger now than ever, thanks to the Web.
I've never been a fan of Comic Sans, and used to cringe when my friend James would use it for research papers in graduate school. For that kind of work, I'll go with Palatino in LaTeX.

Lost in these discussions is an understanding of the powerful role aesthetics play in shaping how we come to know, feel, and respond.

Three Secrets to Make a Message Go Viral | Fast Company
http://www.fastcompany.com/magazine/135/made-to-stick-getting-your-ideas-to-fly.html
How to make a story work for you
Why is the gang-initiation tale so irresistible to pass on? Notice a few things about the idea. It's emotional -- in fact, if you believe it, it's terrifying. The French psychologist Bernard Rimé has found that people almost compulsively share emotional experiences (both positive and negative), and the more intense the emotion, the more likely they are to talk about it. There's another emotional angle: When someone shares this legend with you, they feel like they're doing a public service. They might believe they're saving your life. And that's the second trait of viral ideas. It's often a small favor: "Hey, it's Free Breakfast Day at Denny's!" or "Dude, have you seen the video of that David kid who was drugged up after his dentist visit?" It feels good to save our friends money, or del

Fuck the foundries [dive into mark]
http://diveintomark.org/archives/2009/04/21/fuck-the-foundries
Dynamic web fonts are coming. Actually they’re already here, but most of Our People haven’t noticed yet. But they will, and that’s going to be a huge boon to somebody.
The more I read about embedded web fonts, the more I crystalize my thinking. Take, for example, this latest “A List Apart” article where Jeffrey Zeldman interviews David Berlow: Zeldman: Let me put it another way. I want to use your ITC Franklin in a site I’m designing, but I’m not willing to violate my end user licensing agreement. How do we resolve this impasse, from your perspective? Berlow: The next step is for those who control the font format(s) to define and document a permissions table to be added with all due haste to the OpenType, CoolType, TrueType, and FreeType formats. … Zeldman: How can type designers and web designers work together to persuade the engineers who control the formats to modify the code to include a permissions table? Berlow: [W]eb designers flat-out refused to part with real type, which has filled the web with type as graphic files, scaring the bejesus out of a lot of engineering people. … How important dynamically rendered type is to de
Your Fonts are superior to Our Fonts in every conceivable way, except one: WE CAN’T FUCKING USE THEM

scottberkun.com » Why requirements stink
http://www.scottberkun.com/blog/2009/why-requirements-stink/
Two links to Berkun in one day! But there is a great axiom contained within: "Requirements is not Design."
The one book anyone working on requirements needs to read is Exploring Requirements by Gerald Weinberg. It points out most of the stupidity that goes on, explains avoidance tactics, and clearly expresses how requirements are part of the design process - that good problem solving techniques can quickly make your requirements documents better than ever.
Here’s a requirements list: Make a $5 car that goes 500 miles per hour, weighs 10 lbs, and is invisible. Those are very clear requirements. They’re also impossible.
"I don’t want an engineer working on something s/he thinks is stupid. How I can expect them to do good work on something they find stupid?"
1: Requirements is not Design. 2: Too Many Cooks. I like Berkun.
(1) Requirements may be impossible to implement. (2) Requirements writing is hard when no single person has the knowledge and authority.

I rolled up the autocomplete plugin (Rein + Yehuda) of my last few posts with the Facebook style text list (Guillermo) of my autobox post. We’re calling it Autobox2: click here to see the demo. Then, download it: jquery.ui.autobox-0.7.1.zip Updated 12/11 (see comments) jquery.ui.autobox-0.7.0.zip Although it is missing some of the behavior of autobox1, it’s a more solid and extendable implementation. It also fixes what is in my mind the most glaring problem of autobox1, the fact that it needed the entire list in the initial ajax call. Autobox2 makes AJAX calls the same way that the autocomplete one does, makes a server call with the current contents of the input box. This is the way you would expect. I will no longer be releasing any more changes to Autobox1 and you can consider it deprecated. (I’ve noted this on the main Autobox1 post.) As to the implementation, it is based on the Rein and Yehuda’s autocomplete plugin as detailed in 2 previous posts. There were a few things borrowe

Ultimate Guide To Using WordPress For A Portfolio | Developer's Toolbox, How-To | Smashing Magazine
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/04/29/ultimate-guide-to-using-wordpress-for-a-portfolio/
WordPress is often thought of as just a blogging platform. But it’s capable of so much more. Even WordPress’ documentation includes an entire section on using WordPress as a content management system. Because WordPress is such an easy-to-use platform, it makes sense to consider using it as a platform to build just about any kind of website, a portfolio website included. Whether you’re a photographer, graphic designer, Web designer or any other kind of visual artist, WordPress makes an excellent starting point for developing your online portfolio. And with the wealth of plug-ins and ready-made themes available, you can usually get a perfectly presentable website up and running in a matter of hours.

Erik Spiekermann’s Typo Tips | The FontFeed
http://fontfeed.com/archives/erik-spiekermanns-typo-tips/
The FontFeed is a daily dispatch of recommended fonts, typography techniques, and inspirational examples of digital type at work in the real world. Eat up.
With the inven­tion of “desk­top pub­lish­ing”, design­ers found them­selves set­ting type on their com­put­ers for the first time. Until then, they had made type spec­i­fi­ca­tions for type­set­ters and left the job up to the pro­fes­sion­als. As a result, you can still see clas­sic inac­cu­ra­cies in type­set­ting, even in top-​quality printed matter. Here you will find some tips from Erik Spiek­er­mann, designer of FF Meta®, Meta Design founder, co-​author of “Stop Steal­ing Sheep”, and a FontShop founder, which will pre­vent some of the more obvi­ous blun­ders.
Succinct and useful typography guidelines for everyone laying pixels on the web. Read the comments for the back and forth over the “padded en” vs the em dash. Is the em dash dying?

A few weeks ago, I sent the following in a email to a co-worker asking for input on designing REST APIs in Django. Since then, I’ve quoted myself a few times; I thought these thoughts would be worth a (slightly edited) public home. I think the best way to dive in terms of mistakes to avoid. If you poke around you’ll find a couple-three different stabs at writing a generic REST API module for Django. So, with no further ado, some REST “worst practices:” Conflating models and resources In the REST world, the resource is key, and it’s really tempting to simply look at a Django model and make a direct link between resources and models — one model, one resource. This fails, though, as soon as you need to provide any sort of aggregated resource, and it really fails with highly denormalized models. Think about a Superhero model: a single GET /heros/superman/ ought to return all his vital stats along with a list of related Power objects, a list of his related Friend objects, etc. So the dat

Type is the Photoshop tool to create vector outlines and mathematical shapes to define the symbols of a typeface. It's located on the standard Tool Bar as a tiny T. The keyboard shortcut of this is the letter (T), and if you hold click over that tool (or Shift + T several times) you'll see four options: Horizontal Type, Vertical Type, Horizontal Type Mask and Vertical Type Mask.

Keep It Simple, Stupid
http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/04/28/keep-it-simple-stupid/
K-I-S-S: Keep It Simple, Stupid. It’s a mantra that always pops into my head when I’m looking at new startups. A lot of them seem to want to do a million different things because other companies have been successful at one of those things in the past. But that’s a bad idea. Way too many new products and services are too complicated. And I would suggest, often fail as a direct result of that.
A great article on simple design and how it just...works.
is that it was so much neater, cleaner — yes, simpler. But with an explosion in growth, came an explosion in features. And, in turn, an explosion in complexity.

I liked this article -- particularly the part about Google Labs (so true about how to add new features)

Ruby on Rails for Designers - Nettuts+
http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/ruby/ruby-on-rails-for-designers/
uby on Rails is an open-source web framework that's optimized for programmer happiness and sustainable productivity. It lets you write beautiful code by favoring convention over configuration. This is the way Ruby on Rails promotes itself - but in my words, it is an incredible framework that can really make your life much easier. You can learn more at their site http://rubyonrails.org PG Author: Alex Coomans This is a NETTUTS contributor who has published 1 tutorial(s) so far here. Their bio is coming soon! Step 1- Installing Ruby on Rails Installing Ruby on Rails (also often shortened to RoR) is fairly painless on most systems, but you will need to be comfortable opening up the terminal. The Ruby on Rails download page provides links to get started, and I will reproduce them here to save you a bit of time.

So what can designers do to show clients they’re using a solid strategy and have the best intentions? The following exercises are a great way to start discussing and documenting aspects of design to help clients shed their fear of creativity and encourage them to join the design process.

graphpaper.com - Who Watches the Watchman?
http://www.graphpaper.com/2009/05-02_who_watches_the_watchman
Let’s say you own a big building full of valuable stuff. How do you make sure that the night watchman patrolling your factory floor or museum galleries after closing time actually makes his rounds? How do you know he’s inspecting every hallway, floor, and stairwell in the facility? How do you know he (or she) is not just spending every night sleeping at his desk? An elegant solution, designed and patented in 1901 by the German engineer A.A. Newman, is called the “watchclock”. It’s an ingenious mechanical device, slung over the shoulder like a canteen and powered by a simple wind-up spring mechanism. It precisely tracks and records a night watchman’s position in both space and time for the duration of every evening. It also generates a detailed, permanent, and verifiable record of each night’s patrol.
"But the watchclock is another kind of interaction design, one whose function corrals the user into a single, linear, constrained sort of behavior. The night watchman has a fundamental social constraint — the desire to not get fired from their job. This constraint allows the watchclock patrol system to work so effectively (some would say insidiously) as an interaction design instrument of control."
"How do you make sure that the night watchman patrolling your factory floor or museum galleries...actually makes his rounds? How do you know he’s inspecting every hallway, floor & stairwell? How do you know he is not just spending every night sleeping at his desk? If you’re a technology designer, you might suggest using surveillance cameras or even GPS to track his location each night, right? But let’s make this interesting...go...back...[to]1900. What could you possibly do in 1900 to be absolutely sure a night watchman was making his full patrol? An elegant solution, designed and patented in 1901 by the German engineer A.A.

Johnny Holland - It’s all about interaction » Blog Archive » Deconstructing Analysis Techniques
http://johnnyholland.org/magazine/2009/02/deconstructing-analysis-techniques/
Analysis is that oft-glossed over, but extremely important step in the research process that sits between observation (data gathering) and our design insights or recommendations. In many respects, analysis is crucial to realizing the value of our research since good analysis can salvage something from bad research, but the converse is not so true. This is where the literature tends to fall a little silent, jumping over the analysis techniques straight to a discussion of how best to document and communicate the findings from analysis. This article seeks to begin to redress that imbalance by breaking down the analysis black box into its major sub-techniques.

Good article on being hypercritical.
Knowing what's wrong is a prerequisite for fixing it. That may sound trite, but...
As far back as I can remember, I was told I would grow up to be an artist. By age six, my obsessively detailed renderings of Mechagodzilla, et al. were already drawing attention from adults. By the time I was eight years old, my parents had been persuaded by teachers and friends to enroll me in private art lessons. I recall the informal "admissions test" with my first art instructor. A scale model of a bull was placed in front of me on a table and I was asked to draw it. The plastic bull was a faithful reproduction, full of muscles and knobby joints. It was an ugly, forlorn thing, far removed from my normal subject matter. After a few minutes, the resulting drawing was roughly in proportion, the details were well represented, and the perspective was pretty close. I was in. Thus began eight years of regular art instruction. I progressed from pencils and pastels to watercolors and acrylics, and finally to oils. The content was mostly classical: lots of still lifes and landscapes. Meanw

35 Examples Of Masterful Lighting Effects In Web Design
light effects in web design
Using a light source the right way can add dimension and beauty to a website design. Strong light sources create a stark contrast between light areas and shadows in a design, making the elements look more realistic and dimensional and less flat. Some websites opt instead for a dim light source to create a soft glow around particular areas of the website, to attract the eye more subtly. Lighting can also create a mood for a website. Some websites use bright swirls of light to show energy, while others use a dim glow to create a peaceful mood. In the examples below, you will see a wide range of lighting effects used, from subtle lighting effects to bold rays of light streaking across the page

I’m a science fiction writer, and as I became more familiar with design, it struck me that the futuristic objects and services within science fiction are quite badly designed.
Design Fiction
Bruce Sterling
Many science fiction writers, believe it or not, were capable of understanding Wittgenstein. User experience design, however, was far beyond them. It was also beyond Wittgenstein, because there are things we might imagine and speak about that we do pass over in silence because we are writing in books.

Beautiful Watercolor Effects in Web Design | My Ink Blog
http://www.myinkblog.com/2009/03/10/beautiful-watercolor-effects-in-web-design/
Web design trends come and go. You should be very wary not to jump on the latest ones that have no real staying power. An over abundance of glossy-iconed 2.0 sites are sure to look really outdated, real soon. I’d argue they already do. However some trends, can look awesome long after the trend has peaked. I think watercolor designs, when done right, are one of those trends. Recently, I’ve spotted more and more gorgeous watercolor effects in web design.

10 Firefox Add-ons for Web Designers | 10 Volt Media Blog
http://www.10voltmedia.com/blog/2009/05/10-firefox-add-ons-for-web-designers/
With a plethora of add-ons and extensions, created for developers by developers, Firefox becomes much more than just a browser and turns into an essential part of your toolbox. Here are 10 free add-ons covering everything from DOM inspection to screenshots, making designing and developing with Firefox a breeze.
Firefox has emerged victorious from the Great Browser War - at least as far as web developers are concerned. While it may not be the most-used browser for the everyday web surfer, Firefox is clearly the first choice of developers for a few very simple reasons. Its support for web standards is legendary, but the real super powers come from Firefox’s extensibility.

Best Practices for building JSON REST Web Services « Building Feedly
http://blog.feedly.com/2009/05/06/best-practices-for-building-json-rest-web-services/
A few of our friends have been asking us what are some of the best practices we learnt over the last two years designing and implementing RESTful Web Services as the back-end of the feedly service. Here is a quick/high level brain dump: Phase 1 – Defining a simple resource/service | Take a sample resource such as Customer Information, model it as JSON. Build a simple servlet where PUT creates a new customer, GET returns the customer information based on the customer key, DELETE deletes the customer and POST updates the customer information. Make sure that PUT returns the right information regarding the URL of the newly created resource. In our case, we have a framework which maps JSON to our Java Model and use hibernate to persist that model in a MySQL database. The important things for this phase are to the JSON representation right and the base url formatting simple and clean. Phase 2 – Implementing a client | Learn how to build a simple Javascript client which interacts with the s

littleBits is an opensource library of discrete electronic components pre-assembled in tiny circuit boards. Just as Legos allow you to create complex structures with very little engineering knowledge, littleBits are simple, intuitive, space-sensitive blocks that make prototyping with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together. With a growing number of available modules, littleBits aims to move electronics from late stages of the design process to its earliest ones, and from the hands of experts, to those of artists, makers and designers.

The Evolution of a Website Design | Think Vitamin
http://thinkvitamin.com/features/the-evolution-of-a-website-design/
Germ - thought you might enjoy this as much as I did
Last week I was presented with a design brief. It was to design and build a site to promote our new Stack Overflow DevDays event that’s happening this October. Ryan gave me a rough wireframe detailing the content that needed to be included. The layout and design was down to me. As usual I didn’t have a bloody clue where to start… and I didn’t have long to do it. The initial hope was that I get it all done in just over 2 days. So I thought it might be interesting to share with you the various stages of design the site went through before arriving at the finished design. Here’s the wireframe Ryan put together for me wireframe Ok so here goes. Stage 1 Stage 1 Stack Overflow DevDays is mainly gonna be a US tour + a gig in London. So I want a map or something to show where the dates are gonna be. I was going to use a flat map but decided a globe was cooler. I drew the globe based on one I bought from istockphoto.com (Note: Dates and cities shown in these designs were just provisional

100 Obscure and Remarkable CD Covers | Inspiration | Smashing Magazine

Rivermaya makes the list. O yey!
100 obscure and remarcable cd covers
Some CD covers feature heavily edited and airbrushed vanity photos of the musicians or recording artists. Thankfully, others are much more creative and work to create a cover image that reflects the mood, attitude or feel of the music it promotes. The most striking designs are those that capture both a buyer’s attention and the essense of the music. The CD cover art designs and concepts featured in this showcase present dramatic, quirky, unusual or unique artwork. This type of cover art can make a big difference when a little-known band releases an album. Captivating or iconic cover art can make a band instantly recognizable, which increases sales, which in turn boosts airplay and subsequently demand for the music. Mainstream marketing is rarely this attractive, and the wide variety of beautiful CD cover art makes browsing CDs an enjoyable experience that reaches far beyond the music.

Do You Want Fries With That Logo? | How-To | Smashing Magazine
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/05/24/do-you-want-fries-with-that-logo/
From low-budgets to rush jobs to piss-poor project management, every designer has one time or another faced the inevitable, "I need a logo (brochure, website, etc.) done ASAP" scenario. Depending on the designers’ work situation, some can simply choose to decline these projects. But for many full-time designers, this “rushing creative” is a very real and necessary part of their job requirement. So when asked to “just slap a design together” or “crank it out,” how do we as designers maintain our standards and integrity when a logo must be created in three hours? Or a website in a day? And for that matter, can we?

You should find some of these not-so-well-known tips and strategies listed below very helpful for your workflow. And please feel free to suggest more ideas in the comments to this post!

The future of wireframes? | Made By Many - London based next generation social media digital agency
http://www.madebymany.co.uk/the-future-of-wireframes-00991
I have a love hate relationship with wireframes. In the last 10 years they’ve been a part of every web project I’ve worked on. There have been times when I can’t imagine how we would have solved a particular problem without them. Yet there are also times when I’ve been completely exasperated at the amount of time and energy they’ve consumed, seemingly to very little reward.

I have a love hate relationship with wireframes. In the last 10 years they’ve been a part of every web project I’ve worked on. There have been times when I can’t imagine how we would have solved a particular problem without them. Yet there are also times when I’ve been completely exasperated at the amount of time and energy they’ve consumed, seemingly to very little reward. This frustration has forced me to change the way that I approach wireframes. And as my approach has changed, I’ve been able to extract more and more value from black key lines and grey boxes…

Here & There is a project by S&W exploring speculative projections of dense cities. These maps of Manhattan look uptown from 3rd and 7th, and downtown from 3rd and 35th. They're intended to be seen at those same places, putting the viewer simultaneously above the city and in it where she stands, both looking down and looking forward.
A horizonless projection of Manhattan, where the whole city is visible recurring to an artificial rounding of the horizon line.

Modal Windows In Modern Web Design | Design Showcase | Smashing Magazine
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/05/27/modal-windows-in-modern-web-design/
he modal window has many advantages. For example, when a modal window contains a smaller element, the user doesn’t need to load an entirely new page just to access it (another way to achieve the same effect is e.g. by using AJAX-based tabs). By providing modal windows, you improve the usability of your website. Having to load pages over and over will annoy most users, so avoiding that is definitely a good thing. Modal windows also allow you to save space by getting rid of large elements that don’t need to be on the main page. For example, rather than putting a full video on a page, you can just provide a link, thumbnail or button of some sort. In this article, we’ll go over best practices and trends for working with and building modal windows. We’ll also provide numerous examples of well-constructed modal windows and a few scripts to get you started with building them.

Introducing Typekit « The Typekit Blog
http://blog.typekit.com/2009/05/27/introducing-typekit/
via windfucker
ウェブページでフォントをダンロードしやすくする仕組みっぽい。Javascript一行だってさ。どんな風になるのかな。
all browsers will soon support a wide range of fonts. but using fonts on the web (in most cases) is a direct violation of the font's copyright, as linking to a font gives the viewer a direct way to download the font . It's like using a font to print a book and then including the font with the printed book. Enter TypeKit, a web app that designers and developers subscribe to. The service has a collection of typefaces that the dev can link to in their jscript and TypeKit handles all the background witch's brew of delivering the font to the end user's screen, without that iser being able to download the font package. Interesting idea! I wonder what the tech looks like behind the service and the susbcription fees.
As a Typekit user, you’ll have access to our library of high-quality fonts. Just add a line of JavaScript to your markup, tell us what fonts you want to use, and then craft your pages the way you always have. Except now you’ll be able to use real fonts. This really is going to change web design.
We’ve been working with foundries to develop a consistent web-only font linking license. We’ve built a technology platform that lets us to host both free and commercial fonts in a way that is incredibly fast, smoothes out differences in how browsers handle type, and offers the level of protection that type designers need without resorting to annoying and ineffective DRM.

Designing for Faceted Search
http://www.uie.com/articles/faceted_search
Faceted search, or guided navigation, has become the de facto standard for e-commerce and product-related websites, from big box stores to product review sites. But e-commerce sites aren’t the only ones joining the facets club. Other content-heavy sites such as media publishers (e.g. Financial Times: ft.com), libraries (e.g. NCSU Libraries: lib.ncsu.edu/), and even non-profits (e.g. Urban Land Institute: uli.org) are tapping into faceted search to make their often broad-range of content more findable. Essentially, faceted search has become so ubiquitous that users are not only getting used to it, they are coming to expect it.

Sexy Drop Down Menu w/ jQuery & CSS | Noupe
http://www.noupe.com/tutorial/drop-down-menu-jquery-css.html
Studies show that top navigations tend to get the most visual attention when a user first visits a site. Having organized and intuitive navigation is key — and while most drop down menus may look aesthetically pleasing, developing them to degrade gracefully is also essential. In this tutorial I would like to go over how to create a sexy drop down menu that can also degrade gracefully. Step1. HTML First create an unordered list for your base top navigation. Then simply nest another unordered list for your sub navigation. view plaincopy to clipboardprint? 1. <ul class="topnav"> 2. <li><a href="#">Home</a></li> 3. <li> 4. <a href="#">Tutorials</a> 5. <ul class="subnav"> 6. <li><a href="#">Sub Nav Link</a></li> 7. <li><a href="#">Sub Nav Link</a></li> 8. </ul> 9. </li> 10. <li> 11. <a href="#">Resources</a> 12. <ul class="subnav"> 13. <li

pro´s n´ cons
The problem has boggled the minds of Web designers for years: fixed, fluid, elastic or a hybrid layout design? Each option has its benefits and disadvantages. But the final decision depends so much on usability that it is not one to be made lightly. So, with all the confusion, is there a right decision? By considering a few factors and properly setting up the final design, you can end up with a successful layout design that reaps all the benefits. This article discusses the pros and cons of each type of layout. Either one can be used to make a successful website layout, as long as you keep usability in mind.

YouTube - Learning from StackOverflow.com
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWHfY_lvKIQ
Google Tech Talk April 24, 2009 ABSTRACT Presented by Joel Spolsky Until recently, searching for help on highly technical programming problems has been a mess. A lot of what the search engines found was old discussions in forums, where you have a lot of wrong answers and out-of-date answers that you have to sift through yourself. You also found a lot of answers at sites that were hidden behind a pay wall, which uncloaked themselves for Google and then demanded membership fees to see the answers. StackOverflow.com is a programmer's Q&A site that launched last September to address these problems. It incorporates more modern ideas about community such as voting and public editing, and even a few ideas from game design, to create a much more successful way to get help with programming problems. In a few short months, it has grown to 14 million page views a month and reaches 3 million unique programmers every month.

9 Crucial UI Features of Social Media and Networking Sites | How-To | Smashing Magazine
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/06/03/9-crucial-ui-features-of-social-media-and-networking-sites/
The main function of a good user interface is to provide users with an intuitive mapping between user’s intention and application’s function that manages to provide a solution to the given task. Basically, user interface describes the way people interact with a site and the way users can access its functions. In fact, usability is a biproduct of a good user interface and it determines how easily a user can perform all of the functions provided by the site. Usability is a crucial part of every design, especially on websites with a large amount of functions and users.

10 Tips to Create a More Usable Web | Webdesigner Depot
http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2009/06/10-tips-to-create-a-more-usable-web/
Whether it’s your portfolio, a blog, a marketing web site, or a collection of games, we all want to attract visitors to our website and to ensure that they have a pleasant experience. Usability measures the level of a user’s experience and can be characterized by how easily a given task can be completed; whether it’s done with prior knowledge, or by having the user learn a new way to interact. I think Jakob Nielson probably explained it best when he said: “Usability is a quality attribute that assesses how easy user interfaces are to use. The word “usability” also refers to methods for improving ease–of–use during the design process.” In this article I hope to give you some form of a usability checklist, covering topics from form design to simple navigation tips that you can apply to any Web project.

We’re lean and thus we’re malleable. And our age and our medium demand both.

In this showcase, you’ll find a variety of highly-creative, beautiful, and most importantly inspirational footer designs by which you can learn a thing or two.

When I put together designs, I usually do so in two phases - Layout and Polish. During the layout phase, I place the main objects on the page usually finishing with something that looks relatively complete. In the second stage - the Polish - I go over the design and adjust colors, type treatments, shadows, layers, and generally clean it all up. In this first of a series of tutorials on web design, we'll be looking at the Polish.

But those of us who work in enterprise-level situations realize the momentum even a simple redesign must overcome, and not many, I’ll bet, are jumping on this same bandwagon. They know what it’s like. I'm referring to the new kind of brand, the one is formed by the entire experience of a customer's interaction. That experience gets branded into his or her memory and leaks into the buzz of modern culture. via Caitlin
UX guy reprints email and then attempts to address corporate culture issue; strong opinions follow but most compelling part is the insight from the AA.com UX guy himself (known as Mr. X) "But—and I guess here’s the thing I most wanted to get across—simply doing a home page redesign is a piece of cake. You want a redesign? I’ve got six of them in my archives. It only takes a few hours to put together a really good-looking one, as you demonstrated in your post. But doing the design isn’t the hard part, and I think that’s what a lot of outsiders don’t really get, probably because many of them actually do belong to small, just-get-it-done organizations. But those of us who work in enterprise-level situations realize the momentum even a simple redesign must overcome, and not many, I’ll bet, are jumping on this same bandwagon. They know what it’s like."

"There's a common attribute that makes for good designers, good engineers, good employees, and good companies. For a long time, I couldn't figure out what it was. Was it practice? Was it skill? Was it innate ability? Turns out, it's none of those. It's taste."

Adaptive CSS-Layouts: New Era In Fluid Layouts? | CSS | Smashing Magazine
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/06/09/smart-fixes-for-fluid-layouts/
Fluid web designs have many benefits, but only if implemented correctly. With proper technique, a design can be seen correctly on large screens, small screens and even tiny PDA screens. With bad coding structure, however, a fluid layout can be disastrous. Because of this, we need to find ways to work around most, if not all, of the cons of fluid design.
If you as a designer are going to go through all the extra work of creating a functional fluid layout, why not go a bit further and make it compatible with all resolutions, instead of just most? You can use a few techniques to create an incredibly versatile, adaptive layout that will stay perfectly functional with the constantly changing screen sizes. In this article, we’ll discuss effective techniques to create 100%-functional adaptive CSS-layouts, and provide details on other tutorials and practices.

How to be Unstoppable - Qrimp Blog
http://www.qrimp.com/blog/blog.How-to-be-Unstoppable.html
If you haven't seen the dancing guy, yet, watch it. You can also read Derek Sivers analysis of the dancing guy. Seth Godin even took a stab at it. If you are really curious, watch a longer version of the dancing guy and listen to the comments from the camera drivers. His revolution was a long time in the making. I think it may have had a lot to do with the song itself, which is Santigold's Unstoppable. I had never heard the song before, but I love it and have listened to it at least 30 times since seeing Derek Sivers's post a few days ago at Hacker News. It's a great and inspiring story, even just the unfolding of this sensation itself, but that's not my focus here. Unstoppable doesn't mean you create a huge following, that's a consequence. The Dancing Guy wasn't thinking, "I want to get a huge dance party going." He was thinking, "I want to dance!" With that in mind, here's...
yet another follow-up to the dancing guy phenomenon .. this one more complete and personalized :)

Effective Maintenance Pages: Examples and Best Practices | Design Showcase | Smashing Magazine
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/06/12/effective-maintenance-pages-examples-and-best-practices/
Every website has to perform maintenance at some point or another. Whether it’s just to upgrade a portion of the site or because of some problem with the site, it’s an inevitable fact of website ownership. And in many cases, maintenance requires taking your site offline for at least a few minutes. So what should you do if your site is going to be down for maintenance? You don’t want users coming to a 404 or other error page. And hopefully you’d like to encourage them to come back to your site sooner rather than later, right? If that’s the case, you’ll need to build a custom maintenance page. Below we present a list of best practices to building effective maintenance pages that will help keep your visitors, whether new or returning, happy.

The Best Business Model in the World - Umair Haque - HarvardBusiness.org
http://blogs.harvardbusiness.org/haque/2009/04/the_best_business_model_in_the.html
"Nice content - awesome presentation! What did you use to make it?!" That's what everyone who sees my BRITE presentation asks me. It's a new service called Prezi. And it's insanely great — the minute I saw it I had to have it, no questions asked. So, for the first time in half a decade, I found myself doing the unthinkable: paying for software.
"Yet, the best business model in the world is also the simplest: make stuff that's insanely great. Stuff that's insanely great does what Prezi does — amazes, enriches, and inspires. That kind of stuff doesn't need a hard sell, a new market, or a convoluted product range. It just needs to be."

First Look: Object Oriented CSS
http://www.sitepoint.com/blogs/2009/06/16/first-look-object-oriented-css/
OOCSS isn’t really a framework … but a way of writing scalable, sane, maintainable CSS,” writes Sullivan. Sullivan uses and recommends a grid framework like Yahoo!’s YUI Grids, but you’re free to write your layout styles from scratch using OOCSS principles if that’s your thing. But OOCSS applies equally to the work you do after you have implemented your site’s layout, as you design the blocks and content that slot into your layout. Most web designers tend to write CSS code so that it requires as little extra markup (whether <div> or <span> tags or class attributes) as possible. Fundamentally, adopting OOCSS is making a mental shift towards easy maintenance and reuse of your styles, even if it means writing extra HTML markup.
In October, I’ll speak at Web Directions South 2009 in Sydney about CSS Frameworks. One of the main questions I will answer in my talk is whether or not you should use a CSS Framework in any given project. Since the alternative is writing your own CSS styles from scratch, I’m researching some of the latest thinking on hand-coded CSS.
