A Creative New Way To Encourage Employees And Support Causes At The Same Time Think about the last time you gave one of your coworkers a shout-out for a job well done. It's been a while, right? Now think of the last time you donated to a charity. It's been even longer, most likely. Pats on the back and philanthropy may seem like two random bullet points on life's to-do list, but employing them in concert at your organization may be a worthwhile endeavor.

40 Must-See Photos From The Past The phrase “a picture is worth a thousand words” was coined by American newspaper editor Arthur Brisbane in 1911. It’s a simple notion that applies to many aspects of our lives, but especially to historical photography. Sometimes, one simple picture can tell you more about history than any story you might read or any document you might analyze. India Third Gender Hijras In Photos For years, the hijras of India — people who identify as belonging to a "third gender" — held a special place in society. "Hijras were both revered and feared as powerful entities who lived between the sexes," according to photographer Jill Peters. “They were believed to bestow good fortune and fertility by dancing at weddings and the births of children."

Orman Clark’s Vertical Navigation Menu: The CSS3 Version Next in the Orman Clark's coded PSD series is his awesome looking Vertical Navigation Menu. We'll recreate it with CSS3 and jQuery while using the minimal amount of images possible. The only images we'll be using are for the icons - I'll be creating a sprite using a new tool called SpriteRight, but this is optional. Additionally, I'll be using GradientApp to create my CSS3 gradients, but again this is optional. Techniques for gathering requirements in Agile scrum Gathering or generating requirements in an Agile development system is unique because it's flexible.

Requirements in Agile scrum are ever-changing and designed to remain flexible as needs change or as new design considerations are discovered.

The Best Startup Pitches Of All Time Company: SendGrid Product: Cloud-based email service to deliver transactional emails Founders: Isaac Saldana, Tim Jenkins, Jose Lopez Mockups Take a second. Let it sink in. The first impression might be disorienting. The new extended innovation funnel The ideas funnel has been with us a long time. We put our ideas into the funnel and then through a process of elimination out ‘pop’s’ finished products. Henry Chesbrough’s famous depiction of the Open Funnel has continued that concept, that ideas enter the more ‘open’ innovation process and go through a more ‘staged gate’ or equivalent process to emerge as the finished product or even spun-out- all well and good. In the past few weeks the funnel has been constantly coming back in my life. It has been bugging me. Recently I was at a European Innovation Conference and we got into a roundtable discussion on managing ideas and up pop’s the fuzzy front end and the funnel and putting ideas through this.

Flat design vs realism: which side are you on? Last year, flat design took over the world of digital design. The hallmarks of skeuomorphic design - embossed and bevel effects, 3D artificial textures, drop shadows and reflective shimmers - all but disappeared and were replaced with minimalist design, bold colours sharp edges and lines, simple typography and very little, if any at all, shadowing. To highlight this design trend, interactive agency inTacto created this brilliant interactive infographic Flat Design vs Realism.The cool project also includes interactive game, in which users pick a side and then battle the enemy. We spoke to inTacto's creative director Alejandro Lazos to find out more about the project. How did the concept come about? At the end of each year, we create a self-promotional interactive greeting from the agency, where we like to demonstrate our creativity along with high production values.
