  1. Essential design trends, August 2016
    Color and layers. This pair of design elements has been the driving force behind many of the year’s trends.

  4. Twitter’s new button lets users DM you direct from your site
    Twitter wants to be your everything.

It wants to be the way you talk to people, and...
  5. The rise and rise of the brutalist design trend
    Brutalism in web design is raw, rough, unpolished and everything that today’s standard of the aesthetically beautiful website isn’t. It goes way beyond minimalism (which will still be beautiful when designed properly) into a bare-knuckle and extremely stripped-down design that’s been called...

  8. Introducing CSS’ new font-display property
    We take web fonts for granted these days. We didn’t always have the option of setting our text in almost any typeface. I mean, we could, but then we’d have to sigh and say, “Well, that’ll look good on about five people’s computers. Hope everyone else likes Verdana!” Web fonts brought some much...
  9. Pretty isn’t enough…designing the web with brand values
    Websites have become table stakes for companies. Even the newest start-ups—who don’t yet have products—have a website. The reason being, a website is the front door to a brand. It is the first opportunity, in an available and relatively inexpensive way, for customers, employees, and the world to...
