  • Information Overload: A Great Infographic Is Worth a Thousand Words

    infographicsdesignteam-homepage

    The web is crammed full of words. There is enough content to keep you reading until you take your last breath, even if that moment is still 100 years from now. So far for the good news ;-) The bad news is, the web grows faster than you could ever possibly keep up with. Sooner or later, any netizen will suffer from information overload. I know I do already. This will become a growing problem for brands and their communication strategies as they will need to cut their messages short or risk to not get noticed. If you ask me, one of the best ways to deal with this necessity is the infographic…

    html5-device-mockups-w550

    This is great, I promise. We know Finland for a lot of things, rubber boots for instance or – ehm – Helsinki. Angelos Arnis and Tomi Hiltunen want to add to this ample variety. They just published a set of device mockups, all in PNG and CSS, that you can actually bring to life with real content. You’ve got a web app for mobile clients you want to show on your website? Not very impressive, unless you present it inside the frames of its mobile boundaries. That’s what Arnis and Hiltunen have built…

  • Keeeb, The Free Next Generation Knowledge Management System for Everyone

    keeeb-teaser-550-w550

    Bookmarking services are a dime a dozen. So, I wasn’t too keen on checking out yet another iteration by the name of Keeeb. But, and I honestly mean it, I’m glad I did. Keeeb is not simply a social bookmarking service, it is a knowledge management system and it levels up the quality of my research on longer and more complicated articles easily. I am both an avid user of Pocket and Evernote Premium, yet Keeeb still closes a gap I didn’t even know existed. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?!

    Jakub Linowski, UI designer from Toronto, Canada, is used to be working for the bigger brands. He obviously possesses knowledge not only in the field of webdesign craftsmanship but also in the field of marketing. The latter is what he conveys through his side project GoodUI.org. If you are a web designer interested in maximum conversion aka massive sales, you should definitely care for obeying what Linowski teaches you. Not each and every tip will be a fit to every project, though. Just as it is in real life, if the shoe fits, wear it. If not, don’t…

  • Decals Galore: Your MacBook Gets a Unique Look with our MacStickrs Giveaway

    Mac3-w550

    MacStickrs, a small company based in London, wants to help you make your MacBook feel more like it is yours and yours only. To achieve that, founders Aleksandr Karev and Jaroslav Urban designed a decent set of non-obtrusive stickers with a twist. Instead of taking the Apple face off and putting their own thing up, they tried to only carefully adjust the look of the Apple product. That way, you will still feel to be owning a pure MacBook, yet have the opportunity to weigh in your own personality modestly. MacStickrs likes Noupe as much as we like MacStickrs, so we decided to play a little game where you can win one of 20 decals we give away. Shipping is worldwide, so partake from anywhere you happen to be located at the moment, as long as there is at least kind of a shipping service available, that is ;)

  • Glimpse, a Chrome Extension for Mobile Web Developers

    glimpse-chrome-webstore

    Mobile web development is lots more demanding than classical desktop design, because it extends the stage to screen sizes you usually do not have at hand while developing. Of course you might be able to do proper testing on target devices, but doing so on every step of the way would blow up the efforts unbearably. Glimpse, a Chrome extension, does especially come in handy in those frequently occurring cases where you just tweaked that tiny bit and want to see if it totally breaks things or not.
