I expected to be speaking to the older kids, and be able to talk specifically about the cool parts of the job, and maybe some of the sucky bits too, and how you get around them. However, I was asked to talk to a reception class (four and five-year-olds), and it turned out to be an interesting exercise in boiling down what you do, to its most basic elements. Firstly, I couldn’t rest on my laurels and rely on some of the brands I’ve worked with, to win me any kudos, like it might with the older kids — “Yeah, I’ve worked for Channel 4, and the BBC, and Diesel, and the BRIT Awards, and I even designed a website that got me an imdb entry (even though I share same entry with some dude who was in Xena: Warrior Princess). So what do I actually do? I thought it’d be a good idea to explain what design in all its forms is. Design is about making something easy to use, or easy to understand. Phew.

What an Actual Product Design Process Looks Like Cap Watkins, Design Manager at Etsy shared his and his team’s design process a while ago and I consider it to be one of the most invaluable posts on the topic by far. I came across his 3-part series before reading Etsy Creative Director Randy J. Hunt’s seminal book Product Design for the Web, but revisiting it afterwards really clarified so much for me. I hope to apply these principles towards my own process and make it work for myself and our team. Below are a summary of his steps (along with suggested tools), but I highly suggest checking out his entire series because it’s pure gold top to bottom. What are you doing? Create your own document answering these questions then pass it around for everyone to scrutinize and discuss with; once a consensus is reached refer to it frequently throughout the process to constantly remind everyone of the problems and goals to design for. Suggested tools: Any text software eg. Gather products with similar features and flows you’re trying to solve for.

Pattern Lab | Build Atomic Design Systems Shape Hover Effect with SVG In this tutorial we'll recreate the hover effect as seen on The Christmas Experiments website. We'll be using SVG for the shape and Snap.svg for animating it on hover. View demo Download source If you have visited the fantastic new edition of The Christmas Experiments then you might have noticed the really cool hover effect in the Christmas calendar that uses a triangular shape. The illustrations used in the demos are by talented Isaac Montemayor. So, let’s get started! The Markup What we’ll do first, is to draw two shapes in a vector graphics editor like Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape. The “d” (path data) value is what you are looking for. For the markup we’ll have a section with the class “grid” which contains figures wrapped in anchors. The SVG will have the respective viewBox values for the graphic and a preserveAspectRatio of “none”. Let’s style all this. The CSS Note that the CSS will not contain any vendor prefixes, but you will find them in the files. We’ll start with the grid.

Responsive Web Design: 50 Examples and Best Practices Responsive web design term is related to the concept of developing a website design in a manner that helps the lay out to get changed according to the user’s computer screen resolution. More precisely, the concept allows for an advanced 4 column layout 1292 pixels wide, on a 1025 pixel width screen, that auto-simplifies into 2 columns. Also, it suitably fixes on the smartphone and computer tablet screen. This particular designing technique we call “responsive design”. Now you can test your website using the Responsive Design Tool. Responsive web designing is an entirely different designing version than traditional web designing, and developers (especially fresher) must know about the pros and cons of responsive web designing. Pages that include data tables pose a special challenge to the responsive web designer. Images in responsive web designs are called context-aware. Designmodo Designmodo has a very clean and clear design with a perfect responsive design interface. Simon Collison

7 Rules for Creating Gorgeous UI (Part 1) Introduction OK, first things first. This guide is not for everyone. Who is this guide for? Developers who want to be able to design their own good-looking UI in a pinch.UX designers who want their portfolio to look better than a Pentagon PowerPoint. If you went to art school or consider yourself a UI designer already, you will likely find this guide some combination of a.) boring, b.) wrong, and c.) irritating. Let me tell you what you’ll find in this guide. First, I was a UX designer with no UI skills. My portfolio looked like crap, reflecting poorly on my work and thought processMy UX consulting clients would rather buy someone’s skills if their expertise extended to more than just sketching boxes and arrowsDid I want to work for an early-stage startup at some point? I had my excuses. “I majored in engineering — it’s almost a badge ofpride to build something that looks awful.” These “rules” are the lessons from those hours. This article is not theory. This is the Krav Maga of screens.

Smarter CSS builds with Webpack Nobody writes CSS in one big file any more. You, the savvy CSS developer, well-versed in SMACSS, SUIT and BEM, are writing small, isolated modules in separate files. stylesheets/ config/ colors.sass media_queries.sass modules/ btn.sass dropdown.sass header.sass utilities/ align.sass clearfix.sass When it comes to building a single bundle.css file to send down to your users, you're manually specifying all of the individual files that you know your app needs.

7 Rules for Creating Gorgeous UI (Part 2) Rule 5: Make text pop— and un-pop Styling text to look beautiful and appropriate is often a matter of styling it in contrasting ways— for instance, larger but lighter. In my opinion, one of the hardest parts of creating a beautiful UI is styling text— and it’s certainly not for unfamiliarity with the options. If you’ve made it through grade school, you’ve probably used every method of calling attention to or away from text that we see: Size (bigger or smaller)Color (greater contrast or lesser; bright colors draw the eye)Font weight (bolder or thinner)Capitalization (lowercase, UPPERCASE, and Title Case)ItalicizationLetter spacing (or— fancy term alert— tracking!) There are a few other options that are possible for drawing your attention, but not particularly used or recommended: Underline. Up-pop and down-pop You can divide all the ways of styling text into two groups: Styles that increase visibility of the text. Lots of up-pop going on with the “Material Design” title.

Что делать, если к вам попал Android со сломанным сенсорным дисплеем В один прекрасный день ко мне в руки попал Nexus 4. В наших краях это редкость, поэтому хотелось бы использовать его как основной телефон. К сожалению, тач у него разбит. Одна из болячек всех современных смартфонов. Ну, решено было восстанавливать. Сведения В ходе испытания будут использованы nexus 4, usb кабель, ubuntu как ось для работы, информация из интернета и мозги. Первым делом хочется отметить — телефон полностью в стоковом состоянии. Напомню, у nexus 4 нету OTG, поэтому мышь подключить к нему нельзя без специального кабеля с внешним питанием. Фигачим Первым делом я поставил CWM. sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb Это и fastboot, и adb. Поставить рекавери можно через fastboot: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img Естественно, выбрана notouch версия. Загружаемся в CWM. adb devices Выдает циферки и recovery. Отлично. adb pull /system/build.prop Открываем скачанный файл и заменяем строку: ro.setupwizard.enterprise_mode=1 на Сохраняем и загружаем обратно. adb push . Экран сбросился.
