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!

defmacro - Taming Perfectionism
http://www.defmacro.org/ramblings/taming-perfectionism.html
STV for wabi-sabi + "Wabi-sabi is a set of philosophical principles that relate Buddhist concepts that can be observed in meditation to all aspects of design. 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."
Excellent article referencing Buddhist principals that may be very helpful to me...

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...

Only a few years ago, if something was animated on a website it was automatically assumed to be Flash. However, this is not the case today. With the growing popularity and wide spread use of JavaScript frameworks, sometimes you have to take a closer look to find out what is powering all of those smooth animations. With several JavaScript frameworks available, jQuery is quickly becoming a favorite. If you are interested in using jQuery for animated effects, here are 13 excellent tutorials to get you on your way.

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.

The company had just contributed a major chunk of code to Rails 1.0 and had just shipped Odeo Studio, but we were facing tremendous competition from Apple and other heavyweights. Our board was not feeling optimistic, and we were forced to reinvent ourselves.

Difference between Content and Process
career marketing
As you consider marketing yourself for your next gig, consider the difference between process and content.
As you consider marketing yourself for your next gig, consider the difference between process and content. Content is domain knowledge. People you know or skills you've developed. Playing the piano or writing copy about furniture sales. A rolodex of movers in a given industry, or your ability to compute stress ratios in your head. Domain knowledge is important, but it's (often) easily learnable. Process, on the other hand, refers to the emotional intelligence skills you have about managing projects, visualizing success, persuading other people of your point of view, dealing with multiple priorities, etc. This stuff is insanely valuable and hard to learn. Unfortunately, it's usually overlooked by headhunters and HR folks, partly because it's hard to accredit or check off in a database.

Communication is one of the foundational elements of a good website. It is essential for a positive user experience and for a successful website that truly benefits its owners. All types of websites are affected by the need for good communication in one way or another. Regardless of whether the website in question is an e-commerce website, a blog, a portfolio website, an information website for a service company, a government website or any other type of website, there is a significant need to communicate effectively with visitors.

Learning and Working in the Collaborative Age: A New Model for the Workplace | Edutopia
http://www.edutopia.org/randy-nelson-school-to-career-video
This is a terrific short video on hiring. Nelson explains how to see past the breadth of the resume to determine if someone is really going to make a difference for you. Found via <a href="http://www.kottke.org/">Kottke</a> and like him I especially liked the part about hiring interested vs. interesting people.
Depth, breath, (being interested rather than interesting), comms, collaboration (not just cooperation, which = not getting in each others way. Collaboration: interested in each other, bring separate depths to a given problem).
Pixar University's Randy Nelson explains what schools must do to prepare students for jobs in new media. Much of what he says applies to people working in other fields as well.

5 Real Life Soldiers Who Make Rambo Look Like a Pussy | Cracked.com
http://www.cracked.com/article_17019_5-real-life-soldiers-who-make-rambo-look-like-pussy.html
We all understand that action movies are cheesy escapism. After all, could one commando really take out a whole compound full of bad guys? Actually, yes. It turns out the history books are full of stories of soldiers doing things so badass they'd hesitate to put them into a film for fear of killing the realism. Like these five, for example.

the art of the commencement speech, an archive
http://www.humanity.org/voices/commencements/
" Though some of these wonderful remarks were given decades ago, we believe they are as relevant and important, perhaps increasingly so, as the more current speeches. Thus we encourage you to read them all, recognizing and celebrating your own constant commencement into tomorrow, finding ways to place it firmly within the context of progress for all humankind."
including Barack Obama, Toni Morrison, John F. Kennedy etc
The commencement ceremony affirms each student's search for knowledge. It often includes a graduation speech which seeks to put their recent hard (or not so hard) work into the context of their future. Many of us hear one or two commencement addresses as graduates or listen to a handful as spectators. Yet -- as we graduate from one year to another, one relationship to another, one experience to another -- we always are learning. Though these myriad departures and arrivals of everyday existence are seldom met with ceremony, words traditionally reserved for momentous occasions may ring true and inspirational at any hour. That's why we created this unique archive of commencement addresses, selecting an eclectic menu of twenty nine extraordinary speeches from the thousands that we have reviewed since beginning work on this initiative in 1989.

Your Playground
http://www.yourplayground.org/
Build your own virtual Chicago park playground. Leo Burnett and Domani Studios have launched a site that supports Allstate and the U.S. Olympic Committee's joint effort to create an Olympic bid for the city of Chicago. 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

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.

No other profession calls on its practitioners to lay down their lives for their art save the armed forces and, in Sri Lanka, journalism.

Countless journalists have been harassed, threatened and killed. It has been my honour to belong to all those categories and now especially the last.

Bre Pettis | I Make Things - Bre Pettis Blog - The Cult of Done Manifesto
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 People Who Broke the Rules of Social Media and Succeeded
http://mashable.com/2009/03/10/breaking-social-media-rules/
When I was working as a stand-up comic, I was always warned about the rules of performing. In general, the advice was good (e.g. “Don’t be dirty.” “Talk about yourself.” “Play to the crowd.”), adhering to it made one look and sound like everybody else. It didn’t take long to quickly learn that for every guideline and rule of successful stand-up comedy, somebody has broken that rule and made a fortune off of it (e.g. Sam Kinison, Andy Kaufman). When I left stand-up, I learned that stand-up’s “rule breaking” successes transcended everything, even social media. And like in stand-up, I watched the masses collectively form “the rules,” which manifested itself as an endless stream of top tips, best practices, and expert advice. It all became mind numbing.

Holi - the Festival of Colors - The Big Picture - Boston.com
http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2009/03/holi_the_festival_of_colors.html
beautiful pictures, beautiful color!!!
Sur le blog Big Picture
Last Wednesday (March 11th), people in India and other countries with large Hindu populations celebrated Holi, the Festival of Colors. Holi is celebrated as a welcoming of Spring, and a celebration of the triumph of good over evil. What that translates to in action is an enthusiastic dropping of inhibitions, as people chase each other and playfully splash colorful paint, powder and water on each other. People also attend bonfires to commemorate the story of Prahlada, a Hindu figure and devout follower of Lord Vishnu who prevailed over his father and the demoness Holika with the power of his devotion. Collected here are photos from this year's Festival of Colors.
Forget Mardi Gras and St. Patrick's Day. THIS is the festival that I want to attend.
Photos of. I liked.

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

A lot of corporations have seen dramatic decreases in revenue and have cut back projects as well. In many cases, this is accompanied by layoffs, and so everyone is working far harder. But in other organizations, and for a lot...
1. Learn something. Become an expert. For free, using nothing but time, you can become a master of CSS or HTML or learn Python. You can hit the library and read the entire works of important authors, or you can borrow some books from a friend and master Analytics or discover case studies and corporate histories that will be invaluable in a year. You could learn to become fluent in Spanish...

The issues of accessibility are a daily reality for my family. For us, it’s not a political issue at all. Our oldest daughter, Ramona, has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair to get around.

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://web-kreation.com/demos/Sliding_login_panel_jquery/
ideia fantastica!
This script is based on my previous script "Show/Hide Login Panel with Mootools 1.2" but now works with jQuery 1.3.2 instead of Mootools 1.2. Click "Log In | Register" on top to open the demo. Download this script here » Please note the Login and Register forms in this demo will not work "out of the box" without a user login system pre-installed on your site (e.g. PHP/MySQL user login system)! However, most of the CMS such as Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress, etc have a login system integrated in their platform. So if you are using one, read their documentation to see how you could implement this script into your CMS. This page is valid (X)HTML & CSS. What's new in this version? * Panel has been redesigned to be "slicker". * Panel overlaps content instead of "pushing" it. * Images are transparent... and work in IE6! (Thanks to 24Ways for their IE PNG Fix.) This means, you can change the background color of the body as you wish or even set a background image. * Login button

The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination | Harvard Magazine
http://harvardmagazine.com/commencement/the-fringe-benefits-failure-the-importance-imagination
J.K. Rowling: "I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realised, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter and a big idea."
speech by JK Rowling to Harvard graduates passing out day quite inspiring
It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.
fantastic speech i should watch every day
"So why do I talk about the benefits of failure? Simply because failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy into finishing the only work that mattered to me. Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one arena I believed I truly belonged. I was set free, because my greatest fear had been realised, and I was still alive, and I still had a daughter whom I adored, and I had an old typewriter and a big idea. And so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life. -- You might never fail on the scale I did, but some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default. " -- J. K. Rowling

danieltenner.com — Dealing with impossible crises
http://danieltenner.com/posts/0007-dealing-with-impossible-crises.html
In large corporations, almost everything new is impossible. Try to do anything new, and typically you are met with dozens of reasons why it can’t be done. As a consultant (which I was throughout my time in the corporate world), however, you’ve been hired to get something specific done, so you don’t get to echo the “it can’t be done” line back to your client. Your job is, effectively, to do the impossible.

blyberg.net » The Darien Statements on the Library and Librarians
http://www.blyberg.net/2009/04/03/the-darien-statements-on-the-library-and-librarians/
"The purpose of the Library is to preserve the integrity of civilization. The Library has a moral obligation to adhere to its purpose despite social, economic, environmental, or political influences. The purpose of the Library will never change. The Library is infinite in its capacity to contain, connect and disseminate knowledge; librarians are human and ephemeral, therefore we must work together to ensure the Library’s permanence. Individual libraries serve the mission of their parent institution or governing body, but the purpose of the Library overrides that mission when the two come into conflict. Why we do things will not change, but how we do them will. A clear understanding of the Library’s purpose, its role, and the role of librarians is essential to the preservation of the Library."

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.
great typography article, about making your first font.

Daring Fireball: Obsession Times Voice
http://daringfireball.net/2009/03/obsession_times_voice
Merlin Mann talk about making money to do more art
We don’t make movies to make money, we make money to make more movies
"My muse for the session was this quote from Walt Disney: “We don’t make movies to make money, we make money to make more movies.” To me, that’s it. That’s the thing. / [...] / No one gets into something like this without an obsession, but if your obsession is with the money, and your revenue is directly correlated to page views, then rather than write or produce anything with any actual merit or integrity, you’ll dance like a monkey and split your articles across multiple “pages” and spend more time ginning up sensational Digg-bait headlines than writing the articles themselves. It’s thievery — not of money, but of readers’ attention." / [...] / The entire quote-unquote “pro blogging” industry — which exists as the sort of pimply teenage brother to the shirt-and-tie SEO industry — is predicated on the notion that blogging is a meaningful verb. It is not. The verb is writing. The format and medium are new, but the craft is ancient."
"There is an easy formula for doing it wrong: publish attention-getting bullshit and pull stunts to generate mindless traffic. The entire quote-unquote “pro blogging” industry — which exists as the sort of pimply teenage brother to the shirt-and-tie SEO industry — is predicated on the notion that blogging is a meaningful verb. It is not. The verb is writing. The format and medium are new, but the craft is ancient. Obsession times voice is a pretty good stab at a simple formula for doing it right."

Revolutionary Espresso Book Machine launches in London | Books | guardian.co.uk
http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2009/apr/24/espresso-book-machine-launches
wow.
What would you have printed?
The Espresso Book Machine can print any of 500,000 titles while you wait in 5 minutes
It's not elegant and it's not sexy – it looks like a large photocopier – but the Espresso Book Machine is being billed as the biggest change for the literary world since Gutenberg invented the printing press more than 500 years ago and made the mass production of books possible. Launching today at Blackwell's Charing Cross Road branch in London, the machine prints and binds books on demand in five minutes, while customers wait. Signalling the end, says Blackwell, to the frustration of being told by a bookseller that a title is out of print, or not in stock, the Espresso offers access to almost half a million books, from a facsimile of Lewis Carroll's original manuscript for Alice in Wonderland to Mrs Beeton's Book of Needlework. Blackwell hopes to increase this to over a million titles by the end of the summer – the equivalent of 23.6 miles of shelf space, or over 50 bookshops rolled into one.

Gizmodo - Best Video I've Seen Today Will Make You Smile - Songs around the world
http://gizmodo.com/5231112/best-video-ive-seen-today-will-make-you-smile
If this video doesn't bring a tear to your eyes and makes you smile for the rest of the day, you are a cold hearted bastard. Watch it from beginning to end—you won't regret it. This cover of Stand By Me was recorded by completely unknown artists in a street virtual studio all around the world. It all started with a base track—vocals and guitar—recorded on the streets of Santa Monica, California, by a street musician called Roger Ridley. The base track was then taken to New Orleans, Louisiana, where Grandpa Elliott—a blind singer from the French Quarter—added vocals and harmonica while listening to Ridley's base track on headphones. In the same city, Washboard Chaz's added some metal percussion to it. And from there, it just gets rock 'n' rolling bananas: The producers took the resulting mix all through Europe, Africa, and South America, adding new tracks with multiple instruments and vocals that were assembled in the final version you are seeing in this video. All done with a simple
Nice little music video.
If this video doesn&#039;t bring a tear to your eyes and makes you smile for the rest of the day, you are a cold hearted bastard. Watch it from beginning to end&mdash;you won&#039;t regret it.

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.

Vanity Press Plus: The Tweetbook | booktwo.org
http://booktwo.org/notebook/vanity-press-plus-the-tweetbook/
When Twitter is inevitably replaced by something else, I don’t want to lose all those incidentals, the casual asides, the remarks and responses. That’s all really. This seems like a nice way to do it, and I’ll probably do it again in a couple of years time.
I wanted to test Lulu’s capacity for hardback books, to continue experimenting with the literary cornucopia machine, and to see if you could make a traditional diary/journal in retrospect. And you can, and it’s quite nice (apart from some weird kerning issues). No, most of it doesn’t mean anything, certainly not to anyone else, but it makes physical a very real time and effort.
This is nifty - use the twitter api to download your tweets and publish them to a book using Indesign and Lulu. Ok, so you need a bit of time on your hands, but still, the results are cute.

The reason for this is obvious: Apple products have beautiful features, and just by including them in a composition adds quality to a web design. Here are over 40 big Apple product icons that are great for using in web designs. These are all big enough to be used as a focal point in a header for example, or along side content as supporting design elements.

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
Stephen Fry's letter to his 16-year-old self | Media | The Guardian
http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/2009/apr/30/stephen-fry-letter-gay-rights
Stephen Fry's letter to himself: Dearest absurd childJust who was the young, arrogant and confused man to whom Stephen Fry recently felt compelled to write a long and heartfelt letter? Himself, 35 years ago
You went on to affirm that if ever you dared in later life to repudiate, deny or mock your 16-year-old self it would be a lie, a traducing, treasonable lie, a crime against adolescence. "This is who I am," you wrote. "Each day that passes I grow away from my true self. Every inch I take towards adulthood is a betrayal."
i am so charmed by old men writing wise letters to young men- rilke's, 'open letter to a young man', hofstadter writing to his young self, and now this one too
Stephen Fry: You wrote in 1973 a letter to your future self and it is high time your future self had the decency to write back
oh Stephen!

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. I’ve created this post to serve as a bookmark for inspiration, resources and tutorials on designing these effects.

gist: 67060 - GitHub
http://gist.github.com/67060
We “finished” and the launch came and went. We were not making as much money as we thought we would. We weren’t even getting as many signups as we anticipated. People demanded grandiose features we didn’t have the time to implement. Our cash reserves were running low and we soon needed to return to consulting. Which was always part of the plan, but I had hoped we’d be optimistic about FamSpam’s future when that time came. We were not.

The Evolution of a Website Design | Think Vitamin

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
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/05/13/100-obscure-and-remarkable-cd-covers/
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.

Floral typography is the technique that combines typography, calligraphy and lettering.

Floral typography is the technique that combines typography, calligraphy and lettering to create dynamic, “flourishing” designs. With the help of floral elements you can create very tempting and vivid artworks in which the typography seems to be shaped by plants and flowers. In this way you can convey your message in a very artistic way. In fact, various floral ornaments – which are the essential component of floral typography – can make the design stand out and help the artist to create inspiring, refreshing and thought-provoking pieces of art.

http://amolife.com/image/art/oil-painting-by-leonid-afremov.html
"I tried different techniques during my career, but I especially fell in love with painting with oil and pallette-knife. Every artwork is the result of long painting process; every canvas is born during the creative search; every painting is full of my inner world. Each of my paintings brings different mood, colors and emotions. I love to express the beauty, harmony and spirit of this world in my paintings. My heart is completely open to art. Thus, I enjoy creating inspired and beautiful paintings from the bottom of my soul. Each of my artworks reflects my feelings, sensitivity, passion, and the music from my soul. True art is alive and inspired by humanity. I believe that art helps us to be free from aggression and depression."

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.

http://github.com/raganwald/homoiconic/blob/master/2009-05-01/optimism.md#readme
I cannot convey to you the size of my man-crush on Reg Braithwaite.
"Let's recap. When we explain something in our heads, our explanations have three properties that matter to whether we are optimistic or not: Whether we explain things in a personal or impersonal way, whether we explain things in a specific or general way, and whether we explain things in a permanent or temporary way. / [...] / Optimists explain good things as being personal, general, and permanent, and explain away bad things as being impersonal, specific, and temporary. And if you point out the contradiction in their explanations, they see no contradiction. To them, the bad stuff really isn't about them, it's just that one thing that one time."

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.

http://spyrestudios.com/25-fun-creative-web-designs-from-deviantart/
How many web designers can say that there are too many places to draw inspiration from? Exactly. None. Inspiration is welcomed from high and low, far and wide. Sure, there are css galleries you can check out, or even other designers portfolios you may be friends with on twitter or other social media websites, but what about DeviantArt? I have taken the time to gather some of the best, most creatively designed websites from users on the site and put them together in this list of 25 Fun & Creative Web Designs.

However, there are quite a few ways to create a nice iPhone version for your site using services like Mobify.me. In my case, I decided to build a new Drupal theme from scratch.

one for Neil Moodley
I’ve been working at start-ups and small businesses since I was 14 years old. My father and his father before him owned and operated their own small businesses. There’s something about the fight for survival for a small team that’s coded in my DNA. It’s one of the reasons I enjoy working at Undercurrent so much. We’re small and thus we’re nimble. We’re lean and thus we’re malleable. And our age and our medium demand both.

Getmiro
A perfect layout, A Good Design and Nice resource can produce a creative output. Layout, textures and patterns are used more often than one may think but the outcome of different combination can result verity of designs. One of the interesting trend which I noticed recently is using a attractive footer to provide a perfect ending to your website’s presentation. Modern age designers love to experiment with things and observe how people interact with their work. Even though this is not a common trend to follow but still as the new design styles come up, and as more and more designers notice them and make use of them in their work, this kind of new trends emerge. 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.

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.

Shaun's new RSS reader looks sweet (and smart).
"Fever takes the temperature of your slice of the web and shows you what's hot."
Your current feed reader is full of unread items. You’re hesitant to subscribe to any more feeds because you can't keep up with your existing subs. Maybe you've even abandoned feeds altogether. Fever takes the temperature of your slice of the web and shows you what's hot.

The Simple Fitness Rules | Zen Habits
http://zenhabits.net/2009/06/the-simple-fitness-rules/
Health and fitness are usually made to seem too complex. If you read a lot of fitness magazines and blogs (as I often do), you’re told a confusing variety of complex advice. It makes your head spin.
"..In fact, you can boil it down to two simple rules: 1. Get your body moving on a regular basis; and 2. Eat a moderate amount of real, whole foods (with occasional indulgences).." :-)
smart, and nice picture

http://konigi.com/showcase/latest
Konigi is about shared knowledge and influence. The idea of researching how others have designed the look and feel of web sites and crafted their user interfaces is a practice many of us are engaged in continually. We may monitor innovative designers and the sites of influence that have paved the way for the practices we engage in as user experience and visual designers. In a way, it allows us to remain competitive to know what others are up to, but that awareness alone can be a double-edged sword.

Startup Professionals Musings: Startups: Start with a Problem, Not an Idea
http://blog.startupprofessionals.com/2009/03/startups-start-with-problem-not-idea.html
Potential startup founders are always looking for ideas to implement, when they should be looking for problems to solve. I see startups who are on the road to implementing an idea, but haven’t figured out what problem it solves – the business plan waxes on about how great the product/tech is, but never gets around to defining the problem (investors call it the “solution looking for a problem” syndrome). A related red flag in a business plan is a missing competitive analysis section or “this product has no competition.” My reaction is, if there is no competition, then there is no market demand for your product, so why are you building it? Luckily, many startups are smart enough to keep morphing their idea until it finally fits a real-world problem, and they can move forward in the marketplace. Unfortunately they could have saved themselves much lost time, money, and heartache if they had just focused on identifying the problem before they built a solution.

The Inside Scoop on Design: Ten Questions with Hartmut Esslinger
Nice design interview.
If a young person wants to be a great designer, what should he or she do? “Design” isn’t a clear-cut talent profession, but one of coordination and catalyst between human needs, science and technology, business and economy, as well as sociology and ecology. The artistic talent required is more of an enabler at the end of rational and emotional analysis as well as strategic conceptualization. Therefore, it is vital to learn and study as much as possible about business, technology and human nature. In the end, there are flavors in design which are more esthetic—see New York Times “Style Magazine”—but design is only relevant when it improves human lives by appealing both to the mind and the heart. Finally, a young person with the right talents needs to have infinite desire and never give up. I apply a simple test with young students: smash a teapot into pieces and then hand out the glue. Those who rebuild the teapot won’t make it, those who create phantasy animals will.
Guy Kawasaki interviews Hartmut Esslinger, the founder of Frog Design on his new book "A Fine Line: How Design Strategies Are Shaping the Future of Business."

41 Sleek Single Page Websites
With the internet moving faster and faster, users wanting more and quicker, some designers try to give the user everything all at one – on one single page. This works very well with portfolios, when you don’t need to leave the page or site to see a full source of portfolio pieces. With easy scrolling sliders with jQuery and other web technologies, and the ease of mouse scrolling, for me this is a great way of trying to make your site work a different way.

http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/06/24/module-tabs-in-web-design-best-practices-and-solutions/
Best Practices and Solutions | Design Showcase | Smashing Magazine. A module tab is a User Interface (UI) design pattern where content is separated into different panes, and each pane is viewable one at a time. The user requests content to be displayed by clicking (or in some instances hovering over) the content’s corresponding tab control.
discussion of the use of module tabs or subtabs within a page
The most extensive post I've seen on Tabs, ever. Well done SM.
Module tabs are seeing an increase of use as websites and web applications push for optimizing web page screen areas without sacrificing the amount of information presented at once. For example, in weblogs, they are used in secondary content sections (such as the sidebar) to present relevant and interesting information such as a listing of blog posts which users can interact with to get to web pages quicker. This inevitably allows for an unobtrusive and compact manner of presenting content. This article discusses the use of the module tabs design pattern for use in websites and web-based applications. We share with you some best practices to consider when using module tabs, a listing of real-world examples of websites the take advantage of module tabs, as well as tutorials and free downloadable scripts for building and deploying module tabs in your sites.

50 best female web designers around the world | INDEZINER
http://indeziner.com/design/50-best-female-web-designers-around-the-world
Either is using a free template, a free blogging system or other custom solution, every person with just a little knowledge about computers is able today to “show” something. But who are the real professionists behind the scene? Who are the real designers in this big ocean of information? Well… some years ago we could have provided a simple answer: men.

alpha-transparent PNG images are perfect when you're designing in a browser, particularly when you are experimenting with different color options.
"It's time to stop showing clients static design visuals" Damn right. All my personal projects have been designed along with the backend code, and they're of variable prettiness, but at least they work. I'm finding the more traditional model much, much harder to deal with these days.
designing in the browser? AMEN. Too right. About time that the outdated workflow detailed herein changes. It's old, it DOESN'T WORK, and it needs to be replaced.

Design Trends: 25 Of The Coolest iPhone APP Website Designs | Spyre Studios
http://spyrestudios.com/design-trends-25-coolest-iphone-app-web-designs/
I went around online and found 25 of the coolest iPhone app websites – not necessarrally the coolest APPS, but the coolest website designs. What I found was a lot of the big iPhone image on the page, showcasing how the app actually looks. I also found a lot of darker website designs. We’ve featured dark website designs here before on Spyre Studios and today seems like it’s shaping up to be another notch in that belt. The one thing I did notice – and loved – was the couple websites that did things differently. They didn’t feature a big iPhone image, they did brighter, more eye catching designs. These are truly my favorite out of the bunch.
Nice webpages to copy.

The Battlefield of Design: Designers vs Clients [Design Principles]
http://www.sitepoint.com/article/design-designers-clients/

Establishing the look and feel of a site can be a point of contention. Web designers often become frustrated because they feel there’s a lack of respect for their expertise. Meanwhile, clients grow annoyed when their designer seemingly fails to listen to them.

Establishing the look and feel of a site can be a point of contention. Web designers often become frustrated because they feel there’s a lack of respect for their expertise. Meanwhile, clients grow annoyed when their designer seemingly fails to listen to them. This confrontation inevitably leads to a loggerhead. On one hand we have a designer with years of design knowledge and experience; on the other, a client who knows his audience and business objectives. In this stare-off, sooner or later, somebody has to blink. Either the client will end up with a design that he is unhappy with that fails to meet his objectives, or the web designer will give in and produce a design that she believes to be less than optimal.

The Apple brand is synonymous with good design. It also seems that a lot of applications made for Macs and the iPhone seem to possess a little something extra when it comes to aesthetics. The designers of these apps do a great job in carrying over that same high level of quality in branding. This is evident in the applications themselves as well as their websites. Most of these sites all share certain qualities such as excellent use of color, big highly detailed icons, and pixel perfect buttons.

Grid Style In Modern Web Design: Showcase and Resources | Showcases | instantShift

A Grid is an invisible structure used to guide the placement of elements on your page. Now days using a grid are one of those basic design principles. Over the past few years, there’s been a lot of talk about grid systems and using column grids for website layouts. It’s easier these days to embed a audio/video on the web than it is to set type consistently or align elements to a universal grid. Most news and editorial designers are working with grid systems someone else designed. No matter what you think about it, how you know about it, you need to understand how to use it. Here, in this Presentation, you’ll find everything you need to know about Grid Based Designs with some excellent resources provided by fallow designers and developers.

Animating Design Elements: 7 Unique & Creative Practices | Noupe

We saw different methods and techniques that truly speak to the designer’s capabilities and creativity. A great way to distinguish yourself from the crowd is to have a truly unique user interface. Although there are many possibilities, you should carefully plan each project on its own. Not all techniques provide a solution for everything. Some of them are very helpful and easy to implement, but some lack usability and simplicity.

Gradient Effects On Web design
It’s Monday and beautiful time to get inspired with very good examples and research a little bit what’s happening behind the scenes from graphic designer view. This time I will showcase and analyze gradient effects used effectively in web-design and logo design creation. It’s very important to create and use subtle and eye-catchy color combinations and transitions to achieve modern and stylish effect. Maybe you haven’t noticed but light and shadow effects are widely used and it doesn’t necessary mean just color, but to bring greater effect, use textures and then put on them light but observable transparent color effects and you’ll see magic happening. Using light you can easily emphasize places and actually lead visitor’s attention from point to point using just color, illustrations, text size. After this short introduction I’ll start to share beautiful examples of web site designs which use such light,shadow and gradient effects in very good way.

"British-born and -based artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster skilfully skirt the boundaries between beauty and the shadowier aspects of humanity, playing with our perceptions as well as our notions of taste. Many of their most notable pieces are made from piles of rubbish, with light projected against them to create a shadow image entirely different to that seen when looking directly at the deliberately disguised pile."

Designers are always looking somewhere for inspiration, and there are plenty of design galleries online that have been created for this purpose. Personally, many of my favorite galleries are niche-specific, which makes them stand out from the hundreds of other galleries and unique in some way. Over a year ago Muhashar Iqbal published a list of niche galleries on the Most Inspired blog. I decided to put this list together because a number of great additions have been launched since that post was published.

Think of creativity as a muscle. The more you use it, the stronger it gets. To increase your creativity, you simply need to “act” like a creative person. Not surprisingly, people recognized as creative tend to share common traits.

“We don’t have 200k RSS subscribers because of my deliciously swirly hair” - a central question (asked also during the Q/A session): how on the earth did Basecamp and other 37signals products become so popular? All of a sudden, they emerged from nowhere! As David points out, it was not that ‘out of the blue’ as it looks like. When they started with Basecamp, they already had 2000 subscribers on their blog, Signal vs Noise, so they built a channel which through they could advertise themselves. This advice meshes with one of my favorite points from Getting Real which goes something like “Just start doing something”. Really. Start blogging. Creating/contributing to open source software. Get on twitter. Let your voice be heard! You probably won’t have thousands of listeners right away, that’s OK - it takes time. But you can start today!

Purposely left off the list are common tools most designers are likely already using (like Dreamweaver or Panic’s Coda, Photoshop or GIMP, and similar common software programs that pretty much every designer already has in their toolkit). These are tools that will save you time, make you a more effective designer, simplify or speed up your design process, or otherwise make your life easier.

555 KUBIK | facade projection | on Vimeo
http://vimeo.com/5595869
555 KUBIK "How it would be, if a house was dreaming" The conception of this project consistently derives from its underlying architecture - the theoretic conception and visual pattern of the Hamburg Kunsthalle. The Basic idea of narration was to dissolve and break through the strict architecture of O. M. Ungers "Galerie der Gegenwart". Resultant permeabilty of the solid facade uncovers different interpretations of conception, geometry and aesthetics expressed through graphics and movement. A situation of reflexivity evolves - describing the constitution and spacious perception of this location by means of the building itself. Production: www.urbanscreen.com Art Direction: Daniel Rossa - www.rossarossa.de 3D Operator: David Starmann Sound Design : Jonas Wiese Realized with www.mxwendler.net mediaserver A extended version of this documentation can be found here: vimeo.com/5677104

Ramen Profitable
http://www.paulgraham.com/ramenprofitable.html
Please do not take the term literally. Living on instant ramen would be very unhealthy. Rice and beans are a better source of food. Start by investing in a rice cooker, if you don't have one.
Ramen profitable means a startup makes just enough to pay the founders' living expenses. This is a different form of profitability than startups have traditionally aimed for. Traditional profitability means a big bet is finally paying off, whereas the main importance of ramen profitability is that it buys you time.

Designing Convertbot - Tapbots Blog
http://tapbots.com/blog/design/designing-convertbot
With the surprising success of Weightbot, it was only a matter of time before we would take on the challenge of outdoing ourselves. We knew people were expecting something big from Tapbots the second time around so what’s more impressive on the iPhone platform than a unit converter? Pretty much anything. In name alone, Convertbot is probably the last application people would expect to see from us. But the truth is, converting units, while extremely ordinary, is a very useful utility for many people. And while there are countless feature-rich unit converters for the iPhone, none of them make the task any more enjoyable. So it really was the perfect robot for us to build. I just wanted to spend a little time writing about how Convertbot came to be. Getting Started The first step was to set up the groundwork for the application. What is the primary purpose of this application? Who is the target audience? What are the bare minimum features this app needs and what features can we add that

Presentation Zen: 10 Tips on how to think like a designer
http://www.presentationzen.com/presentationzen/2009/08/10-tips-on-how-to-think-like-a-designer.html
Most people do not really think about design and designers, let alone think of themselves as designers. But what, if anything, can regular people — teachers, students, business people of all types — learn from designers and from thinking like a designer? And what of more specialized professions? Can medical doctors, scientists, researchers, and engineers, and other specialists in technical fields benefit in anyway by learning how a graphic designer or interaction designer thinks? Is there something designers, either through their training or experience, know that we don't? I believe there is.

Write When Inspired – Jeffrey Zeldman Presents The Daily Report
http://www.zeldman.com/2009/08/09/write-when-inspired/
You are not writing for Amazon, or to fit a staff proofreader’s vacation schedule. You are writing for readers. The world is already choking on half-considered, squeezed-out shit. There’s no need to add to the pile. If you want to be great, or at least to be better, start by breathing, taking breaks, and working intensely when the mood is on.
This is interesting, but it's easy to imagine people feeling tired most of the time and there fore always resting
Jeffrey Zeldman shares the simple secret to maintaining quality.
Great piece by Zeldman
"You are writing for readers, a duty as sacred, in its way, as parenting. If you don’t believe the previous sentence, if you think writing is mainly about getting paid, I’m sorry you wasted your time reading this page, and I hope you find another way to earn a living soon. The world is already choking on half-considered, squeezed-out shit. There’s no need to add to the pile. If you want to be great, or at least to be better, start by breathing, taking breaks, and working intensely when the mood is on."
"Write when inspired; rest when tired" –Jeffery Zeldman. Amen.

90 New And High Quality Photoshop Web Layout Tutorials | Graphic and Web Design Blog - Inspiration, Resources and Tools

I am continuing my research and this time I thought I’ve never done Photoshop layout tutorial roundup and wanted to become better in this matter. One of the reasons I didn’t make this kind of list, because I saw there are already many of similar articles. But as always to stand out I invested two days in this article, collecting only really high quality tutorials and also ordering them all by date. Maybe such measure isn’t right – but I am sure you are tired of lists featuring old tutorials you have seen over and over again. I was searching only for Year 2009/2008 tutorials and was surprised myself, how many of them I found, which I really enjoyed and was high-quality ones. Keep updated because this article was created also to study already created tutorials and get inspired to create my own layout tutorials trying to teach you what I already know about web-design! As always – hope you enjoy this work!

It’s difficult to talk about how to get started with a project without addressing why it can feel so difficult to get started in the first place. And, as I said in the talk, I think this often comes down to perceived barriers. Barriers to even the most modest kind of starting. Barriers that seem entirely real, external, and immovable...
Merlin Mann on how to get yourself on task with creative side projects and not rationalize against them using "Real-Life Obligations."
"It’s difficult to talk about how to get started with a project without addressing why it can feel so difficult to get started in the first place"

Great talk about overcoming creative barriers and getting stuff accomplished.
"Remember now, we’re not talking about finishing a project or even making something that you know will be the greatest thing ever made. Just starting. What’s the barrier for you?"

The Web Design Process Start to Finish
I’ve always found it interesting reading the design process of others (David Airey, Contrast, Brian Hoff). It’s good to have an insight into others work, to see if I can learn anything from their process but also for curiosity. So I’ve put together a break down of my design process, using a recent project as a real life example, Newsgroup Direct. Overview I was recently hired by Newsgroup Direct (NGD), a leading Usenet newsgroup service provider, to revamp their website, make it more modern and improve signups. Old Here is their previous design. Planning Planner The first thing that happens when I get an enquiry is I send the potential client a website planner. The website planner, a series of questions I have listed in a Word document, will gather requirements for the project. The key objectives of the planner: * Find out who the client is and what they do * Who their target market/user is * Who their competition is * What deliverables they want from me * Tim

Johnny Holland - It’s all about interaction » Blog Archive » The iPhone is Not Easy to Use: A New Direction for UX Design
http://johnnyholland.org/magazine/2009/08/the-iphone-is-not-easy-to-use-a-peek-into-the-future-of-experience-design/
iPhones fly off the shelves despite being difficult to learn. Why? Because they let you do what it says you can do and they make you happy while you do it. This proves that my job as a user experience designer has evolved rather than simply changed. While it’s still my responsibility to prevent things from sucking, now it’s also my responsibility to add a little playfulness. As Kim Goodwin said in her Interaction09 keynote, we have a limited window in which to prove how valuable design can be to business. There are three ways in which user experience designers can learn to incorporate play into the systems they design. Experience and Research Play You can’t build playfulness into your designs without experiencing playfulness yourself. Play games and pay attention to what makes them fun. For example, the only rule in the card game Fluxx is that the rules constantly change. Completing a level in Peggle gives you the “Ode to Joy,” rainbows, unicorns, and fireworks!
responsibility
Very thorough and insightful article about the direction of UI and UX in software. This is about the iPhone, but the lessons are universally applicable.
To some extent, you need not make things not suck if you can make them fun. The Mary Poppins Principle as a new model for user experience design.
Software user interfaces as games, with focus on iPhone usability.

Less is often better and that’s something we designers seem to forget to satisfy our lust for intricate designs. Detail is what makes a good design, and minimal is all about that. Minimal is fresh, often very usable and doesn’t blow your mind up with things to concentrate on.

The long lost formula for start-up success. No, really
http://uk.techcrunch.com/2009/08/30/the-long-lost-formula-for-start-up-success-no-really/
In doing so we discovered Customer Development, a product development methodology formulated by veteran entrepreneur Steve Blank. Based on the premise that start-ups tend to fail through lack of customers rather than lack of technology or product features, customer development is a systematic way of identifying who the customer is, what it is they need and whether that need is sufficient to build a business on. One of my co-founders describes it as ‘an algorithm for building products users want and are willing to pay for’.
The crucial question in the survey is “How would you feel if you could no longer use [product]?” Sean has benchmarked the results of that survey and found that if less than 40% of respondents say “Very disappointed” then your product doesn’t yet have sufficient traction to scale.

You're a little company, now act like one - Blog - Startups + Marketing + Geekery
http://blog.asmartbear.com/blog/youre-a-little-company-now-act-like-one.html
Even before I had a single customer, I "knew" it was important to look professional. My website would need to look and feel like a "real company." I need culture-neutral language complimenting culturally-diverse clip-art photos of frighteningly chipper co-workers huddled around a laptop, awash with the thrill and delight of configuring a JDBC connection to SQL Server 2008.
Why small companies should look and act like small companies instead of fluffing their feathers
ade $800,000 in their first year of operations, so don't tell me "big companies" need to hear garbage PR/marketing language. Balsamiq got 100 product reviews during their first six weeks of operation, so don't tell me "a couple of guys in a studio" isn't a good public persona.

The Definitive Guide to About Me Pages | Web Design Ledger
http://webdesignledger.com/tips/the-definitive-guide-to-about-me-pages
One of the most important and least used aspects of any website is the “About Me” page. It’s not enough to have an interesting site and great product if your visitor can’t find a way to relate to you. Never under-estimate the power of personality. The internet isn’t a cold, sterile environment. As a matter of fact, within the last 15 years, it’s developed into a community addicted to interactivity, and communication. If you don’t believe me, check out Twitter. Twitter is a good example of why “About Me” pages are crucial. If you can amass a group of followers based on 140 characters of random biographical chatter, it’s a safe bet that those readers would also like to know a bit more about you.

Some estimate that there are as many as 10,000 abandoned structures at any given time, and that seems conservative. But for a few beautiful months during the summer, some of these houses become "feral" in every sense: they disappear behind ivy or the untended shrubs and trees planted generations ago to decorate their yards.

Skinni Popcorn Now Showing Top Box Office The Final Destination RETWEET WATCH TRAILER YAHOO! MOVIES Synopsis On what should have been a fun-filled day at the races, Nick O'Bannon has a horrific premonition in which a bizarre sequence of events causes multiple race cars to crash, sending flaming debris into the stands, brutally killing his friends and causing the upper deck of the stands to collapse on him. When he comes out of this grisly nightmare Nick panics, persuading his girlfriend, Lori, and their friends, Janet and Hunt, to leave... escaping seconds before Nick's frightening vision becomes a terrible reality. Thinking they've cheated death, the group has a new lease on life, but unfortunately for Nick and Lori, it is only the beginning. As his premonitions continue and the crash survivors begin to die one-by-one--in increasingly gruesome ways--Nick must figure out how to cheat death once and for all before he, too, reaches his final destination.

Great reminders when Designing a blog!
Designing a blog can be quite a daunting task, to be sure. To-do lists alone for could fill pages if you were to include all the minor details that accompany the project.

Which is also why some of these little things that would make the latter pages of the list, more often than not, get overlooked. Never fear, that is why we are here!

“In 18 months I’m going to start my own company,” the problem with that sentence is the 18 months. What you’re really saying is, “I’m afraid.”
Omia tuotteita konsultoinnin sijaan.
> We’ve had a lot of things not work, and that’s OK too. If it’s a good idea and it gets you excited, try it, and if it bursts into flames, that’s going to be exciting too. People always ask, “What is your greatest failure?” I always have the same answer – We’re working on it right now, it’s gonna be awesome!
Jim Coudal is a truly inspiring character. His company decided to shift from the standard model of selling their creative services to clients, to a model of creating products which they own and have full control over. And they’ve been very successful at it. Coudal Partners is proof that you can indeed create your own reality. (interview, article)

How to Display Your Content on a Blog's Front Page | Webdesigner Depot http://ow.ly/phR8 [from http://twitter.com/10minuteexpert/statuses/3982372377]
The front page of a blog is obviously of great importance to the overall design. Up until a few years ago, most blogs simply showed posts in order of publication, the most recent at the top. Then excerpts became popular, and later magazine-style front pages. The purpose of the front page will, of course, vary a bit from one type to another; for example, a personal blog will be different from a professional multi-author blog. In this post, we will take a look at the options that bloggers and designers have for showing content on the front page, and some reasons for choosing each.

It’s kind of ironic to see what designers can do with single pages as modern age designers love to experiment with things and observe how people interact with their work. Even though this is not a common trend to follow but still as the new design styles come up, and as more and more designers notice them and make use of them in their work, this kind of trends emerge.

5 Ways To Hack Your Brain Into Awesomeness | Cracked.com
http://www.cracked.com/article/127_5-ways-to-hack-your-brain-into-awesomeness/
Much of the brain is still mysterious to modern science, possibly because modern science itself is using brains to analyze it. There are probably secrets the brain simply doesn't want us to know. But by no means should that stop us from tinkering around in there, using somewhat questionable and possibly dangerous techniques to make our brains do what we want. We can't vouch for any of these, either their effectiveness or safety. All we can say is that they sound awesome, since apparently you can make your brain...
The Smart List: 12 Shocking Ideas That Could Change the World
http://www.wired.com/techbiz/people/magazine/17-10/ff_smartlist
For this year's list, we walked right past the usual suspects and went looking for trouble. We wanted radicals, heretics, agitators—big thinkers with controversial, game-changing propositions. We found a prison reformer who wants to empty jails, an economist who thinks foreign aid hurts more than it helps, and a military theorist who believes the US should launch preemptive cyberattacks, right now.

Leaders retire with $, but then get bored, then have to do something else. Should have stuck with it
As a MINT user, the only real question I had was whether I trust my data in the hands of Intuit. I have decided to take that chance until I learn something differently.
"As more great new companies are absorbed into big old companies, a whole new generation of change is lost. They can issue press releases saying how excited they are to be able to bring their product to a whole new world of customers, and how their new suitor will bring enormous resources to bear, but we know that’s usually not really what happens. Development slows, products stall, the staff that built the great stuff leaves, and mediocrity creeps in. Not always, but usually."

"The best time to do great customer service is when a customer is upset. The moment you earn your keep as a public speaker is when the room isn't just right or the plane is late or the projector doesn't work or the audience is tired or distracted. The best time to engage with an employee is when everything falls apart, not when you're hitting every milestone. And everyone now knows that the best time to start a project is when the economy is lousy."

30 Sensational Print Ads From Around The World | CreativeCloud
http://www.cartridgesave.co.uk/news/30-sensational-print-ads-from-around-the-world/
Print advertising can inspire and shock, motivate and make you think. These amazing print advertisements show just how powerful an image really can be!
Every day, we’re bombarded by thousands of adverts, most of which are boring, thoroughly irritating or both. Every now and again, however, an advert comes along that’s so powerful, due to the originality of its content or the way that it conveys its message, that it inspires us to change our behaviour: it might make us find out some more information about a product, donate money to charity or even cut down on drinking alcohol! With in excess of $385 billion spent annually on ads, it’s unsurprising that admen give life to veritable masterpieces of visual communication from time to time. These truly brilliant ads can be found on TV, on the internet and on billboards too. But the most engaging ads of all appear in traditional print media, as people reading newspapers and magazines have time to absorb lots of information as well as creative subtleties. Below, you’ll find 30 examples representing the crème de la crème of recent print advertisements

Punctuation Inspired Logo Designs
We use punctuation everyday when writing articles, blog posts and emails. We're all aware that using the wrong punctuation can completely change the meaning of a sentence or even a whole document. So, where else do people use punctuation? In logo design of course! The 34 logos showcased in the post use punctuation as a design element. Some logos feature commas, colons and semicolons while others use exclamation marks, question marks, brackets and parentheses. I found they were very creative and thought I'd share them with you.

Nobody wants to read your shit. There’s a phenomenon in advertising called Client’s Disease. Every client is in love with his own product. The mistake he makes is believing that, because he loves it, everyone else will too. What’s your answer to that? 1) Reduce your message to its simplest, clearest, easiest-to-understand form. 2) Make it fun. Or sexy or interesting or informative. 3) Apply that to all forms of writing or art or commerce. You acquire that skill which is indispensable to all artists and entrepreneurs: the ability to switch back and forth in your imagination from your own point of view as writer/painter/seller to the point of view of your imagined reader/gallery-goer/customer.

Il reste un bonhomme qui, tout nu sur son vélo, suit une mystérieuse piste de bulles de savon dans l’espoir de retrouver un lieu plus accueillant. Criiii, criii, criii... La bande sonore est saisissante : le grincement de la bécane en stéréo, les hostiles courants venteux, le craquèlement des glaces, et (surtout) le petit cri désespéré qui accompagne les fréquentes chutes dans le vide... Flèches gauche et droite pour gérer la vitesse, flèche du haut pour sauter. C’est tout simple, et pourtant le jeu est loin d’être facile.

Inspirational Showcase of Business Card Websites
http://line25.com/articles/inspirational-showcase-of-business-card-websites
The term ‘business card website’ has become widely associated with the popular style of website that has cropped up on the personal domains of designers and developers. The site is essentially a simple, single page design that displays personal information, contact details and links through to other social profiles, much like a traditional tactile business card is used to display basic information. Business card websites come in all shapes and sizes, but popular charactersitics include a compact, lightweight design, often small in size. Business card sites also tend to make use of Javascript to enhance the user experience and are commonly designed with a fresh take on the interface, taking inspiration from the clean style of Apple’s OSX. Let’s take a look at an inspiring collection of examples, each with an individual twist on the original business card idea.

Presentation Zen: Personal Kaizen: 15 Tips for your continuous improvement
http://www.presentationzen.com/presentationzen/2009/09/personal-kaizen-tips-for-your-continuous-improvement.html
Kaizen (改善) means "improvement" — "kai" (改) means change/make better, and "zen" (善) means good — but as the term is used as a business process it more closely resembles in English “continuous improvement.” Kaizen is one of the keys to the steady improvement and innovation found at successful companies in Japan such as Toyota.
Great tips, along the line of "be interesting" from Russell Davies
"Though Kaizen is a tool used by corporations to achieve greater innovation, productivity, and general excellence, it’s also an approach, an approach that we can learn from and apply to our own lives as we strive for continuous improvement on a more personal level. We can call this “Personal Kaizen.” Others have applied the personal kaizen approach to personal efficiency or GTD. You too can take the spirit of kaizen and apply it to your own unique personal kaizen approach to improve — step-by-step, little-by-little — your design mindfulness, knowledge, and skill. "

Minimizing Complexity In User Interfaces « Smashing Magazine
http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2009/10/07/minimizing-complexity-in-user-interfaces/
"Clean. Easy to use. User-friendly. Intuitive. This mantra is proclaimed by many but often gets lost in translation. The culprit: complexity. How one deals with complexity can make or break an application. A complex interface can disorient the user in a mild case and completely alienate them in an extreme case. But if you take measures first to reduce actual complexity and then to minimize perceived complexity, the user will be rewarded with a gratifying experience."

Creative Sense - New icons for the Adobe Creative Suite for Mac OS X and Windows
http://beta.dthought.net/icon-sets/creative-sense/
Analysis of Adobe CS3/4 icons and thought process behind a redesign of the primary application icons.
First of all, please allow me to make one thing clear - if you use and enjoy the current box-style Adobe branding and icons, then this icon set may not be for you. I don't claim that these replacement icons are more correct, as icons and branding are subjective topics. What follows is my own perception of things as they were, as they are and have become and finally, if it were up to me, things as they should be.

The world is rife with business opportunity, and nowhere more so than online. I often think of the web as something of a wild west frontier, awaiting anyone intrepid enough to stake out a claim. But to start an online venture you first need to have an idea of what you want to do. For many would-be entrepreneurs ideas are many and easy to come by, but not everyone feels this way.
So let’s say I was setting out to start a new business tomorrow. I would sit down and think about what sorts of problems I have, both offline and on, and how I wish they could be fixed with an online solution. When thinking of solutions, I always ask myself whether I, myself would really use the solution if some other company magically brought it to market right now. It’s important to be honest and realistic with yourself because if you wouldn’t use the thing, chances are neither will others.

A vCard is an electronic business card that uses a standard format. Some individuals have taken to creating simple, typically one-page, sites that center around their vCard. These sites contain minimal content, usually just basic information about the individual (i.e. job title) and contact information (i.e. mailing addresses and links to social media profiles). Designer and Blogger, Tim Van Damme, started this web design trend, and for a lack of a better term, I’ll call them vCard sites.

What we find particularly intriguing is the section on hiring and firing. They want every manager to ask themselves: “Which of my people, if they told me they were leaving in two months for a similar job at a peer company, would I fight hard to keep at Netflix?” Anybody who doesn’t make that list should be offered a severance package right now so we can open a slot to find a star performer for that role. Another highlight: Netflix has no vacation policy! They don’t have a “rule” about 9 – 5 work - their rule is simpler: get your job done, and do it well. They realized if they didn’t track the hours employees worked, why would they track the hours they DON’T work? There is also no policy on clothing, but as of yet, no one has come to work naked (Patty McCord, 2004). The lesson: You don’t need detailed policies for everything. Here’s the part where they devalue training (you should probably stop reading here. . .)
This makes me want to work for Netfilx. No, wait. It makes me want to built the same values into meta4 so I never have to leave.

Иногда вспоминаю свое первое постоянное место работы в одном небольшом издательстве, когда приходилось заниматься практически всем от разворотов и рекламных полос до лайтбоксов, обложек, иллюстраций и различных графиков. Особенно нравилось наглядно и доступно подавать большой объем информации или просто графически объяснять какие либо сложные моменты и явления. Даже где-то жаль, что сегодня нет необходимости рисовать такие вещи (равно как жаль что не сохранил свои старые работы), тем не менее интерес к инфографике остался и рубрика будет обязательно пополняться.

http://www.ted.com/talks/rory_sutherland_life_lessons_from_an_ad_man.html
great talk about value of perception...
Advertising adds value to a product by changing our perception, rather than the product itself. Rory Sutherland makes the daring assertion that a change in perceived value can be just as satisfying as what we consider “real” value -- and his conclusion has interesting consequences for how we look at life.

"use the back of the 3x5 card as your Anti-Todo List. "
productivity tools: Let's start with a bang: don't keep a schedule.- "By not keeping a schedule, I mean: refuse to commit to meetings, appointments, or activities at any set time in any future day. As a result, you can always work on whatever is most important or most interesting, at any time." Each night before you go to bed, prepare a 3x5 index card with a short list of 3 to 5 things that you will do the next day. And then, the next day, do those things. ...Then, throughout the rest of the day, use the back of the 3x5 card as your Anti-Todo List. This isn't a real list. And the name is tongue firmly in cheek. What you do is this: every time you do something -- anything -- useful during the day, write it down in your Anti-Todo List on the card." This is obviously suited to the practices of the advanced learner.
The techniques that follow work together as an integrated set for me, but they probably won't for you. Maybe you'll get one or two ideas -- probably out of the ideas I stole from other people. If so, I have succeeded.

use of a bird’s-eye view to take photographs. Modern photographers love to experiment with things and observe how people interact with their work. Although not yet the most common trend, still, as new design styles come up and more and more photographers notice and make use of them, it promises to be an interesting area.
We love beautiful photography. In photos, beauty doesn’t always come from an eye-catching combination of colors. Also crucial are perspective, angle, composition and, most importantly, the idea behind the shot or the situation in which the shot was taken.

50 Popular Airline Logos | Webdesigner Depot
http://www.webdesignerdepot.com/2009/03/50-popular-airline-logos/
In this article we’ll take a logo at the logos of over 50 popular airlines. The list is by no means a complete list of all airlines and is just intended for inspiration for your own projects.

Scientific studies have shown that you can destroy a child by calling them "smart." Even when they're very young, little kids know that being "smart" is what makes them special - and so, the first time they encounter something they don't understand immediately, it's a threat. Their specialness is in danger of being stripped away. And if they lose that smartness, then what are they?
You're going to live in fear, smarty. The question is, which fear?---------As long as they were in the drawer, they could be good. And I could be a good writer. If I worked at it. Which I wasn't, but that potential gave me all the glory of feeling like I might be a great writer some day without all of that icky negative feedback. Sure, I had this constant underlying fear that maybe I wasn't good enough - but I had a moderately popular journal, some folks who liked me, and wasn't that enough?
