Viewport Sized Typography | CSS-Tricks

CSS3 has some new values for sizing things relative to the current viewport size: vw, vh, and vmin. It is relevant to bring up now, because it's shipping in Chrome 20 (canary at the time of this writing). And not behind a flag, it just works. Production usage isn't quite there, but it will be soon enough.

15 Great Examples of Websites using jQuery Masonry | Web Resources | WebAppers

jQuery Masonry is a dynamic grid layout plugin for jQuery. Think of it as the flip-side of CSS floats. Whereas floating arranges elements horizontally then vertically, Masonry arranges elements vertically, positioning each element in the next open spot in the grid. The result minimizes vertical gaps between elements of varying height, just like a mason fitting stones in a wall.

Fancy checkboxes and radio buttons with CSS Many young guns ask about how to style custom checkboxes and radio buttons in forms. I prepared a typical markup, a few lines of CSS and some JavaScript functions (Safari label behavior fix included).

Apple-Style Counter : Chris Nanney : Journal

When I saw the 10 billion song counter on Apple’s website yesterday, I immediately right-clicked on it to see if it was flash. No big surprise to see that it wasn’t (this being Apple), and when I saw it was done using JavaScript I knew how I’d be wasting the next few hours.


Apple - HTML5

by 3 others
The demos below show how the latest version of Apple’s Safari web browser, new Macs, and new Apple mobile devices all support the capabilities of HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. Not all browsers offer this support. But soon other modern browsers will take advantage of these same web standards — and the amazing things they enable web designers to do.


Carver & Veen {39} Typekit - Podcast Episodes - CreativeXpert Design Interviews

Typekit Makes Sites Pretty. That should be enough, but there’s so much more! In this episode, Ryan Carver and Greg Veen join us from Small Batch Inc., the makers of Typekit. Typekit aims to solve all of the problems that currently prevent web designers from using commercial typefaces in their designs. Every major desktop browser will support linking to custom fonts from within your site’s CSS using @font-face. You can then use these fonts on your web site without users having to install the fonts on their system beforehand. => This really is going to change web design

Nice Web Type Likes: Graublau Sans with Lucida sanserif

If your web browser is up to snuff, you’ll see Graublau Sans Web for headings, subheads, and appropriate examples in this specimen page. If not, refer to CSS @font-face support. Please note: IE supports @font-face via fonts converted to .EOT, but because conversion is a hassle I have skipped it in this example. ↩

24 ways: Making Modular Layout Systems

For all of the advantages the web has with distribution of content, I’ve always lamented the handiness of the WYSIWYG design tools from the print publishing world. When I set out to redesign my personal website, I wanted to have some of the same abilities that those tools have, laying out pages how I saw fit, and that meant a flexible system for dealing with imagery.

Design isn’t about tools : Journal : Mark Boulton

I’ve always liked to abstract my design process from the tools I use. Photoshop, Fireworks, HTML/CSS, Pen and paper, HTML Wireframes using Blueprint, Omnigraffle—It doesn’t really matter. You use what’s best for your workflow at the time. These are all tools in the same way that a pencil is a tool. They are implements to realise a solution to a problem. You say tomato and I say toe-may-toe.

Stopdesign | Choosing the right tool

However… I consider myself fairly competent in HTML & CSS. But even I am limited in design by starting with code before having a few design ideas fleshed out. I have advocated in the past that HTML and even CSS are not design tools. They are tools used to implement design. There’s a big difference.

File inputs (input type="file") are the bane of beautiful form design. No rendering engine provides the granular control over their presentation designers desire. This simple, three-part progressive enhancement provides the markup, CSS, and JavaScript to address the long-standing irritation.

Incremental leading : Journal : Mark Boulton

There has been a lot said recently about Vertical Rhythm. Richard Rutter began the work on 24ways last year with the piece ‘Compose to a Vertical Rhythm’. This was built upon by Wilson Minor on A List Apart recently with his article on Baseline Grids. All sound typographic advice. If you haven’t read both of them, I’d urge you to do so now otherwise you know what I’m on about it in this post.
