Helping people easily navigate a website is one of the basic responsibilities of a designer. There are plenty of fancy features we can add. But what it all comes down to is providing functional navigation and plenty of visual cues.
We have yet another freebie for you guys courtesy of our friends over at Freepik. It’s an amazing icon set that would be perfect for anyone that’s working on an Autumn-themed design project.
In total there are 50 icons in the set and are available in both SVG and PNG formats. They’re all editable, scabale, and come in a choice of flat, line or colored line styles. The set includes icons that cover all areas of Autumn and the Fall. And as always, you’re free to use these files in both personal and commercial projects.
You’ve been there before. Too many times perhaps. You’ve got a looming deadline or you’re running low on budget. You have to work extra hard to finish a project before time or money runs out.
You’ll succeed of course. You always manage to, but it’s not fun. You usually end up knowing that with a little more time or money you could have done a much better job. Your client may be satisfied with the outcome, but then again that might not always be the case.
The earliest era of the web brought with it a lot of experimentation. It was a new medium and designers looked for ways to best utilize their skills.
But standards were scant and proprietary browser code was rampant. The result was often a website that looked fine for some users, while being virtually unusable for others. Still, the burgeoning web design community wasn’t afraid to take chances. With that, some real gems came out of this time period.
Cryptocurrency is one of the biggest mysteries of our times. Is it a real thing? Is it a fraud? No one can tell for sure. People are split into two camps. Some are convinced in a future with decentralized control and an alternative medium of exchange that is secured by blockchain; others are strong believers that Satoshi Nakamoto’s invention (widely known as Bitcoin), along with other cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum, Litecoin, Monero, etc. is just hype dished up in a different wrapper.
In a default installation, the WordPress Gutenberg editor contains a number of useful blocks. All of your basic text and image formatting, along with multicolumn layouts are included. But that’s only the start of what this new content creation tool can do.
App and website designers, developers, and project managers always need to be on the same page. Prototyping tools often serve as the most effective means of communication. As for prototyping itself, it’s a key step toward successful web or mobile app development.
It is amazing to think of how far web typography has come. Back in the day, designers were relegated to just a few “web safe” choices. Today, we have access to a nearly endless array of fonts – including many that are available for free.
