Designing for the Web: Are There Colors You Should Avoid? Designing for the Web: Are There Colors You Should Avoid? The web is a rainbow of color options. Color is a great tool for grabbing the attention of users, providing visual interest and impact and creating contrast for readability. But can you go wrong with color? Neons Neon colors can be fun, spunky and add a lot of pop to a design. The problem with neons is that they are too bright to read with ease and cause problems paired with dark or light backgrounds. Try this instead: Remove some of the brightness from neon colors so they have a darker, more subtle look on screens. Orange You Glad does a great job incorporating “almost” neon colors into the design of their homepage in a number of ways. “Vibrating” Colors When highly saturated colors are paired, they create a “vibrating effect” where colors seem to almost move in a blurring or glowing motion. You can almost predict what will make colors vibrate before putting them side by side. A classic example is pairing bright red and green.
8 Ways to Kern Any Typeface Like a Professional Typographer Kerning is a subjective art. Every designer may feel differently about how combinations of letters look together. Most though can agree that almost every bit of type needs a little kerning. Kerning – the adjustment of space between two letters – is something the untrained eye can rarely see. Good, or poor, kerning is more of a feeling as to whether type works or not. 1. Because kerning is a visual element, think of it that way. There are two ways to tackle visual space. Color the spaces between letters in and look at the shading. When you think about kerning, remember that space can be added or subtracted. 2. Yes, kerning is defined as the space between letter pairs, but looking at the space in three-letter groups can make it easier to see what tweaks you should make. Here’s how it works: Start by isolating the left-most trio of letters.Kern the two pairs.Isolate the first letter to create a new three-letter combination.Kern the pairs.Repeat until you have kerned the whole word. 3. 4. 5.

Font service launches that's fair for designers A new font rental and purchase service has launched today which aims not just to make it easier and cheaper for designers to try a broad range of professionally designed typefaces but also to support the work of independent type foundries. Called Fontstand, it's an app for OS X 10.9 or later which lets designers browse over three hundred font families from 21 foundries, and when you've found a font you want to try, you can install it for use in any app, free for an hour. If you're then convinced you want to use it, you can rent it for a month for 10 per cent of its purchase price, and any rented font can be shared with a co-worker for an additional 2 per cent. Subscription offer And here's the kicker: any font rented for a total of 12 months, even non-consecutively, automatically becomes yours to keep and use forever. There are some limitations. Bil'ak, though, is bullish when asked about that; it's clear this is something of a crusade as well as a clever and useful business model.
