This morning gave me a awesome new trick in Photoshop, as i didn't know yet about Layer Comps i was suppriced that it holds your states, position and blending options of all your layers in the psd file. This means you can create different setups in one photoshop file to show off to your clients. It also means, that you can work quicker and keep it all closer less psd files which will decrease errors. It's like version controle in Photoshop.
So go look at the great video about Layer Comps from the Lyda Photoshop top 40 series.
It's fun to see how people suddenldy know how to take the stairs or clean up after themselfs, when the get rewarded for it. It let's us see that we sometimes need to stimulate the heard to help them to do something good. This can also be a lesson for us to use in webdesign or product launches, but with all great power comes great responsibility. Haha.
Offcourse not every text will have the perfect grammer, but at least you give your visitors the change to understand what your website is about.
Last two months i worked on a project for Speelpark de Swaan, a entertainment park that needed a full branding. I'm in charged as creative director to guide the illustrator and help the marketeer with social media and search engine optimalisation. As a webdesigner i help the illustrator to give his illustrations a change to shine. So with this came also the facebook custom profile design and Twitter offcourse (future post).
A new psd freebee is the expendable button psd file and css included. The webdesign is followed by the below css code to make it into a css sprite for loadspeed optimalisation and you to use in one of your upcomming projects. The button can be used for non-commercial als commercial projects. Feel free to share, a link back is appreciated.
I just read this great, clean post about the problem that came up when we starting to mix share and reference links to our social media profiles on the samepage with the same icons. The post explains very clear and has a great perspective on the topic, couldn't write it better myself. So have a look at Context by Proximity writen by Zach Dun on Build Internet!
I just ran into this little problem with Drupal's views filter, that when you want to translate the label that shows everything it doesn't work through the translation interface. So i searched on Google and found a link to a post about it on the Drupal forums.
Go to Views -> Tools and set <Any> to - Any -, now you can go to the translation interface of Drupal and translate it to what ever you like.
A view months ago i discoverd the dot grid book of Behance, fell inlove right away! But it wasn't possible to order it from the Netherlands.. a bit disappointed i started looking for a download version of the dot grid. I found this free version of dot grid system by Matt. From that day sketching a mockup for clients or drawning a custom font had never been so easy!
A few weeks back a client of mine send me there webdesign through de file sharing service of We Transfer.com. They let you share files up to 2GB size for free and have a very intuative advertisement concept to support there cost. The have a clean looking download webdesign and a full page background advertisement area.
I just ran into a small problem with Drupal's pathauto module, drupal taxonomy and ubercart module. When i wanted to add a new term i get the following Fatal error. The fix for this module is made in the uc_catalog.module file where the call to the pathauto module, trough pathauto include() must be replaced by a new function. It still contains the old way to talk to Drupal's path auto module.
