You Are A Designer

You Are A Designer

A designer is not some heroic super-hipster sipping a $5 cappuccino while puzzling over a macbook in a beautifully lit, industrial-chic coffee shop. A designer is someone who plans out the look or form of content for a visual medium. Everybody is a designer - we all make design decisions. The idea of designers as a different breed, separate from the rest of us, abdicates responsibility from our own design choices. Embrace it - you are a designer.

The decisions you make regarding look and form will either improve or detract from the media you create. Any time you create content…

Forgoing a professional translator comes at a high cost.

In this day and age of electronic capabilities, free online translation programs are readily available, and it may be tempting to forgo the expense of hiring a professional translator in favor of using these easy options.

Responsive Doesn’t Mean Boring

If you own a smartphone or a tablet (collectively known as mobile devices) you'll no doubt have been frustrated by websites you visit where you have to zoom in in order to actually be able to use the site and read the content.  And if you own or run a website, you'll no doubt have heard about the technique known as 'responsive theming' or 'responsive design', which is the web industry's unanimous answer to the growing marketshare 'mobile devices' have when it comes to how the world is using the internet.  In short, responsive design allows a website's content to be displayed differently depending on the viewer's…

The Story of the Fold

 

You have heard about "The fold", but perhaps not about "life below the fold". There is another way to capture and hold the attention of an audience without cramming things above the once-famous-fold.When there was a fold, it had a height and a set of rules that governed its use. The fold struggled to maintain its height, because without defined height, there is no fold. Crammed with buttons, forms and blog posts, the fold soon suffered abuse. When the size of screens and resolutions multiplied, the fold became confused and now it is not likely to be used. Today, it's safe to say that there is no fold, and whether there is life below the fold depends…

Responsive themes are just what they sound like. We call your website design a “theme,” so a responsive theme is one that responds and adjusts intelligently to the device on which it is…

6 Goals for Your Mobile Site

With the rise of popularity of mobile devices it is very important to have a user-optimized mobile website that meets several key goals.

Simple Design – Do not replicate your complex non-mobile website because the formatting will be incorrect when it appears on a smaller screen. Users have to use their fingers to click on links, zoom, and type so keep the website simple. Show only the Most Vital Information – Consumers who view a website on a mobile device are more likely to only be seeking directions, a service, or contact information than someone viewing the website on a desktop. Feature all of this…

Craft – the New CMS in Town

We write a lot about Content Management Systems (CMS) because they are a core part of the value provided to our clients. Few clients want to call or email their changes in to a developer to get their website updated. Most want to be able to control the content of their site independently without learning arcane markup languages. The ability to do that is the strength of a good CMS combined with thoughtful website design. For this reason, every website we build rests on the foundation of a CMS. Which CMS to choose, however, depends on the purpose of the…
