Focus On: Fonts September 15, 2011

Filed under: Creative Ideas, Focus On — Kickstock Photo @ 3:06 am

It’s been around for a while, but It’s still a great thing to have around the studio. The perdiodic table of the fonts was originally published at behance.net http://www.behance.net/Gallery/Periodic-Table-of-Typefaces/193759 and subsequently flashed around various sites including lifehacker. You can download screensaver versions from the original creators at http://www.squidspot.com/Periodic_Table_of_Typefaces.html

How do I look on a PC? December 15, 2009

Filed under: Creative Ideas — Kickstock Photo @ 9:30 pm

If you develop websites themes, blogs or style html content then checking that your site looks good on other platforms (PC / MAC / Linux) and other different browsers is an important part of the design life cycle, without it your client might be looking at a finished site that looks somewhat different to what you see on your own monitor.

http://browsershots.org is a great, free website that allows you to select from a list of different browesrs on different platforms and download a screen shot of what you site looks like on those platforms.

cross platform website screen capture

(TIP: I recommend just selecting a few browsers to test as it makes the results process much quicker)

Lorem ipsum for HTML January 12, 2009

Filed under: Creative Ideas — Kickstock Photo @ 6:32 pm

Here’s a useful bit of cut and paste goodness for web developers and designers, Lorem imsum for HTML. It can also be be used to test which html elements form fields will accept (e.g. in user posting) and how those elements will be styled.

cut and paste, use anywhere you like!
