Flex Box Explained with Animations

Flex Box is a fairly new CSS3 layout standard that allows you to have layout elements automatically fit the available space according to layout rules defined in a website's stylesheet. While as of today still a W3C Candidate Recommendation Flex Box is already well-supported by all major browsers.In contrast to tried and true block- or grid-based layouts with Flex Box the onus of defining the exact placement of an element isn't on the designer but the browser. Flex Box therefore is ... Read more

The Noun Project – Building the World’s Visual Language

Today there's certainly no shortage of icon sets and icon search engines (see the list below for a selection of those). These come in different flavours, mostly as icon fonts or SVG files, and can be easily integrated in a website or web application using standard HTML and CSS techniques.A particularly ambitious offering though is the Noun Project. The Noun Project provides a huge collection of curated icons (or rather huge amount of icon collections) created by a large community. Their ... Read more

Should Web Apps Behave More Like UNIX Programs?

Recently, through various discussions about the nature of the web and web applications I came up with an intriguing (to me at least ...) idea: Web apps should behave like UNIX command-line tools.Please hear me out and let me elaborate.Probably the most widespread pattern in modern web app development is that of single-page applications (SPAs). Though that particular term isn't used as abundantly anymore as it used to be a few years ago the design pattern it promoted still persists:Web apps ... Read more

Codrops – Web design inspiration

Codrops is a blog that shares web design inspiration, trends and techniques.These days when thinking about your next web application's design it can be quite tempting to think "Ah, I'll just use Bootstrap and be done with that.". Although frameworks such a Bootstrap certainly aren't a bad start as they provide web apps with a common ground and predictable UI components - a minimum design standard if you will - they are just that: A start. In order to really help ... Read more

Design & Quantum Superposition

Last year, Hungarian designer Csongor Bartus published a thought-provoking article I've only recently come across. Quantum mechanics and design are two words you don't often see juxtaposed and probably rightfully so. No, I've not gone crazy and I'm not going to go down some weird esoteric "Quantum Design" rabbit hole here.However, Csongor borrows the term superposition from quantum mechanics as a metaphor for an interesting new angle on design for the web:To cut in, let's equip all content with all states ...

Less Is More

What's true for design in general certainly is true for software design in particular: Less is more - or paraphrasing Dieter Rams - "Write less software in order to write better software."A few weeks ago I read this interesting article by web accessibility consultant Heydon Pickering. In this blog post he argues that the only foolproof way of writing performant web applications is to write less code. Sure, all that fancy minification, transpiling, JIT / AoT compilation and optimisation stuff might ... Read more

UI Design Patterns

UI Patterns is an extensive library of user interface design patterns by Danish web developer Anders Toxboe. This website is a collection of tried and tested best practices in UI design. Although the site focusses on web applications and websites most of its practices apply to user-facing software in general.Best practices and design patterns allow us to draw upon proven methods - of user interaction in this case - instead of having to re-invent the wheel (which itself is an ...
