Page Transitions with CSS3

Page Transitions with CSS3

In the last few years, we’ve seen a lot of single page websites lying around the internet, most of them using JavaScript for some transitions effect. Well, now I’m gonna teach you how you can have your own, but instead I’ll be using CSS Transitions and the :target property to do all the magic.

The Dribbble shots used in the demos are by Matt Kaufenberg. Check out his Dribbble profile or visit his An Illustration-a-Day Blog.

Mind Blowing Illustrations by Alexis Marcou

Mind Blowing Illustrations by Alexis Marcou

Alexis Marcou is an extremely talented illustrator from Greece. Graduating from Plymouth College of Art, he currently freelances for clients like Cisco, Hewlett Packard, and Nike. While racking up thousands of view on Behance, he has caught our attention. Today we would like to dedicate this article to him.

Marcou creates traditional fine arts pieces with a slight digital touch-up. Keeping the color scheme very monotone really adds to the overall composition and lets the talent shine through. His signature style is very geometric (scroll below to see what we mean). By using a wide range of watercolor sketches and illustrations, he strives to create fine contemporary art!

More than often, he shows the planning stage images on his portfolio. You can see that a simple idea goes through numerous revisions. Things like fading, tone, light, and shade play a huge role in the process. He loves what he does and creates outstanding work! No wonder corporate companies hire him on the regular.

Arctext.js – Curving Text with CSS3 and jQuery

Arctext.js – Curving Text with CSS3 and jQuery

While CSS3 allows us to rotate letters, it is quite complicated to arrange each letter along a curved path. Arctext.js is a jQuery plugin that let’s you do exactly that. Based on Lettering.js, it calculates the right rotation of each letter and distributes the letters equally across the imaginary arc of the given radius.

How it works

The main idea behind the Arctext plugin is to rotate letters with CSS3 transforms in order to place them along a curved path. The curve is always a segment of a circle (hence arc) for which the radius can be specified. The space and rotation for each letter will be calculated using that radius and the width of the text.

Pinterest for Businesses – Beginner’s Guide to Next Big Social Thing

Pinterest for Businesses – Beginner’s Guide to Next Big Social Thing

Pinterest is a well-turned combination of “pin” and “interest” meaning web service that allows to post, manage and share inspiring pics and videos online. Pinterest has quickly started enjoying great popularity, involving more than 1 million users in summer and exceeding 4 million members to date. Of course we all as web professionals not only care about how to find new awesome stuff there, but also how to show our own awesome products or services to new audiences on Pinterest. That’s what we’ll try to figure out today.

But first let’s dig into how this whole thing works. Here’s how. You find interesting stuff, place it to the pages and topic boards and share them with other site users. It’s much like other social networks, still hiding a few nuances which make it quite a powerful marketing tool on the net. Most “pinned” content are photography and digital design but there’s also an option to share video content. The pics themselves are not the main focus of interest – the point is the ability to arrange links to various exterior pages and connect with people sharing your interests and hobbies. You may also follow the updates of other users boards if their taste is authoritative for you. Now here is where you should be careful – officially Pinterest is not for business needs, it’s for personal use only. But that doesn’t necessarily means that you can’t use it for your business, it just means you have to be more careful than you would be on Facebook or Twitter for example.

Back to your new Pinterest account. The initial and only inconvenience is that you can’t access Pinterest immediately, but need to get an invitation first. You can request an invite on the site itself and wait for an invitation request coming in a week or so to your email. Another way is getting an invite from other active pinners you are familiar with.

What Will Android’s New Design Guidelines Mean for the Platform?

Android has long been criticized for its lack of a focused user interface design language. Apps running on the platform often don’t feel like they’re apps for the same platform at all, lacking a sense of coherence and uniformity. While Apple’s clearly stated design language documentation and arduous review process have given rise to an app ecosystem that provides a seamless, integrated, uninterrupted user experience through consistent UI elements, Android has fallen behind. Google hasn’t put enough weight on the importance of a consistent design language — until now.

With Ice Cream Sandwich, much of Android’s design was overhauled. A new font, Roboto, has replaced the Droid Sans and Droid Serif pairing, which Google must have been pretty sure is an improvement as the Droid fonts had become Android design icons all of their own.

And late last week, Google finally launched the Android Design site which introduces a new set of guidelines for app design, complete with style advice, patterns and ready-​​to-​​go building blocks.

15 Printing Mistakes You Need to Avoid

15 Printing Mistakes You Need to Avoid

Here’s an illustrated list of the top 15 printing mistakes and errors you should avoid. This article is aimed mainly at inexperienced designers, but there’s also a few tips and further resources in it for seasoned designers, too. We all make mistakes, so here’s a resource that should aid everyone who wants to expand their knowledge. Here goes…

1. Inadequate Bleed on Artwork

If you don’t put in place a decent bleed in your artwork, you’re asking for trouble. Basically, “bleed” refers to artwork that extends beyond the document boundaries. This is necessary because the guillotines that will slice-and-dice your prints aren’t that accurate. Some behave better than others, but a safe bet is to have 3mm of bleed (or 1/8 of an inch) for most print jobs that are ‘hand-held’, such as posters, letterheads and business cards, etc. Large format prints may require more bleed, so always ask your printer first.

Resource: For a tutorial on this, read Designing for Print – Setting Up Crops and Bleed over on Spoon Graphics.

Why Your Form Buttons Should Never Say Submit

When you see a Submit button on a form, what comes to your mind? One could easily reason that clicking the button submits the user’s information into the system for processing. A Submit button describes what the system does well, but it doesn’t describe what the user does at all.

When users fill out a form, they are engaging in a task. The action button should affirm what that task is, so that users know exactly what happens when they click that button. A button that describes the user’s task tells users that the form focuses on carrying out that specific task. The more focused your form is, the more likely you’ll get users to complete your form.

A form button that says Submit gives users the impression that the form isn’t focused on a specific task. It also gives off the impression that your website is not user-friendly because you’re speaking in a technical way that most users aren’t familiar with. If this is the impression your users get when they fill out your form, you can bet that you’re losing a few users in the process.

Cut the Rope: Offering it on the Web using the power of HTML5

Cut the Rope is an immediate favorite for anyone who plays it. It’s as fun as it is adorable. So the creators of the game had an idea: let’s make this great game available to an even bigger audience by offering it on the web using the power of HTML5.

To do this, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team partnered with ZeptoLab (the creators of the game) and the specialists at Pixel Lab to bring Cut the Rope to life in a browser. The end result is an authentic translation of the game for the web, showcasing some of the best that HTML5 has to offer: canvas-rendered graphics, browser-based audio and video, CSS3 styling and the personality of WOFF fonts.

You can play the HTML5 version of Cut the Rope at: www.cuttherope.ie.

Stunning 3D Street Art Designs

Stunning 3D Street Art Designs

Street art design recorded since early Street painting has been recorded throughout Europe since the 16th century. Street painters in Italy e called madonnari (pronounced: mah-doan-are-ee with madonnaro being the singular form) because they often created pictures representing the Madonna.

In 1972 the first International Street Painting Competition was held in Grazie di Curtatone, Italy. This recognition caused a whole new generation of street painters to emerge.

Julian Beever is an English chalk artist who has been creating trompe-l’œil chalk drawings on pavement surfaces since the mid-1990s. His works are created using a projection called anamorphosis, and create the illusion of three dimensions when viewed from the correct angle.

20 Inspiring Minimalist Web Designs

Minimal websites can be a pretty polemic issue, especially when we stop to think how minimal should a minimal site be? Some people think that a good minimal website is that which has few design elements as possible. While others believe that the number of elements is not the key, but rather the way they are putted together. There is also some that don’t consider colorful sites as examples of minimalism because they believe that colors distract the viewer and take away the minimalist effect – the old cliche, less is more. Whatever side you are on, today you can check some examples of what we believe are inspiring minimalist websites. Sites with a clean and nice layout, where content takes over and makes clear for users what the site is all about.

Magnificent Film Photography By Laina Briedis


Film Photography is a very creative type of photography. Today we have with us Laina Briedis. She has lived on Long Island most of her time, and for as long as she can remember she has been captivated with the concept, practice, and art of photography. You could say that she very often try to live vicariously though my pictures- each still frame is a dream she had once, an attempt to capture or at least encompass some aspect of infinity.


“I create photographs because I’ve come to the conclusion that all the best kinds of happiness depend upon it as far as my existence goes. I want to remember everything the way it was meant to be seen, and catalog not only an experience or an adventure, but the feelings associated with it and the dream-like state our memories record in. I strive to make each one of my photographs not only provoke a memory within myself, but an emotion- something that can bound across the invisible gaps that separate us from one another, creating a connection with someone else who’s able to reach out and grab it.”
