  • CIKONSS 1.0: Responsive Icons In Pure CSS, IE Doesn’t Fail

    cikonss-startpage-550

    Icons based on PNG, GIF or JPG are nothing new. Relatively new is the way to store all icons in one single PNG and access them via CSS, the so-called sprites. Even more interesting is the complete omission of file-based structures using nothing but pure CSS. CIKONSS does just that. And as these symbols are based on CSS2, even Internet Explorer 8 supports them.

  • Useful Helper: Freebbble Curates Dribbble’s Best Download Freebies

    freebbble-dribbble-w550

    Dribbble is great, but that filled with contributions, you simply cannot stay on top of things. Many members make their designs and other resources available for free downloading, while most members don’t. Dribble in itself does not offer simple access to the many download resources the platform contains. So, if you are one of the seekers looking for ready-made designs or UI components, you will need to rely on third parties. Fortunately there are a few. Making use of the Dribbble API, Freebbble is one of these little helpers.

    tayasui-sketches-artistry-w550

    It’s been quite a while since we last published an article in our series of iPad apps for the creative professional. As we all know there is no shortage of apps for the Apple tablet in general. Hundreds of thousands can be downloaded. All in all more than 50 billion apps have been downloaded from the App Store since its inception, which allows us to roughly estimate, that each human being walking this earth must own 8 apps on average. Hey, the numbers never lie. The app we want to introduce to you today is called Tayasui Sketches and at first sight it will remind you of Paper by FiftyThree, closely. At second, too…

  • 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…

  • 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?!
