  • BootMetro: Framework for Websites in Windows 8 Design

    We know you like tiled websites. Our article featuring Sergey Pimenov’s Metro UI CSS drew loads of attention. So we thought you might also be interested in what the Italian frontend-developer Marcello Palmitessa created. By the name of BootMetro he just introduced a whole framework for building tiled websites in the Metro-style of the forthcoming Windows 8. Palmitessa took Twitter’s Bootstrap and changed its looks to mimic Redmond’s next-generation operating system. And yes, he not only got inspired by Pimenov’s Metro UI CSS.

  • Moqups: HTML5-Based Mockups On Steroids

    Before you detail the design of your next website project you need to determine where should be what. You will have to place your navigation, images, texts, forms, whatever will be part of your site. Especially essential parts such as the navigational concept have to be planned very thoroughly. The information architecture decides if your project will be usable or not. Also important in your early concept is that nothing should be forgotten. The established way to deal with all of these challenges is creating one or more mockups of the project. Mockups are small models, sometimes even prototypes, sometimes only scribbles of the website under construction. They do not determine the design aka looks of a site but they define its structure and the navigational concepts. The brand-new web-app Moqups has been created to help you do just that, build early mockups of your next big web-thing.

  • Camera+ by Taptaptap: A Great Photography App And Now Native On iPad

    Welcome to part two of our series with iOS Apps for Creative Professionals. I didn’t tell you, but I will now. I like the iOS app Camera+ by taptaptap so much, that I installed it on my new iPad. Even though I knew it was only optimized for iPhones. As the retina display double-sizes the iPhone apps nicely without showing visible pixelation I was happy enough with that solution. But taptaptap was obviously not content with me being just happy, they wanted to excite me. And they did with their release of Camera+ for iPad today.
