The web is constantly evolving. New and creative websites are being created every day, pushing the limitations of HTML in every direction. HTML4 has been around for nearly a decade and now its time to move forward. To give authors more flexibility and interoperability, HTML5 is proposed as the next major revision of HTML.
It works on just about every platform, is compatible with older browsers, and handles errors gracefully. You can create powerful, easy-to-maintain, future-proof web pages. Many common tasks are now simplified, putting more power in your hands.
In this presentation, you’ll find a variety of highly-creative, beautiful and most importantly inspirational designs that are coded in HTML5.
When I speak to senior students at art schools, there is one major thing I try to impress upon them: to freelance is to run a small business and a freelance design business has all the needs and headaches of running a bakery, pizza parlor or crack house – although a crack house basically only needs a steady supply of product and doesn’t need advertising, bookkeeping, furniture and their collection methods are a bit different than any other business. Usually, this is when several students run to the president of the school, in tears, to demand their tuition back because no one had told them it would be so hard to be a designer. Welcome to business!
Part of that business is the same thing a competent designer will have to know to sell their services when a client with a new business wants a logo to start their road to success. There are many discussions on a logo vs. a brand. I can assuredly write that the two are intertwined but still two different things. When you start your freelance business, you will need both.
In web design, the learning never stops. Some of us designers see this as an opportunity, others as a hindrance. We have to keep up with the pace of ever-changing technology, techniques and trends in order to be competitive. In this fast-paced environment, we are bound to make mistakes—and mistakes can harm our reputation.
Heavy competition and ceaseless client demands make you susceptible to mistakes that you probably wouldn’t make otherwise. Here’s one possible remedy: put a list of common mistakes on your desk, and watch yourself carefully. Plenty are listed on the Internet, but they’re not organized well, which is the reason I wrote this post.
IN COLLEGE, the bulletin board in the student center can be a handy tool for most students looking for what’s happening on campus. If these bulletin boards aren’t well kept, they become a clash of posters all screaming for your attention but none of them getting it. Blogs and news sites that have sprouted up all over the internet are much akin to these bulletin boards. Although blogs can be a great way for people to pool information about one topic in particular for public use, wild or obnoxious commenters looking for attention can make it difficult to sift through content and find valuable information.
For website owners, there are a few steps you can take to make sure the comments on your site are valuable.
