  • Sequence.js: Responsive Content Slider with CSS3 Transitions and Gesture Control

    Plugins for content sliders are a dime a dozen, fish in the sea, you name it. Fewer, but still many are supporting CSS3 transitions and working responsively. Anyway „Sequence.js“ is something special. This JavaScript does not only support animations on the transition of slides as a whole. Instead all of the content of a slide, be it headlines or images, can be animated individually. Being a top-notch web tool, „Sequence.js“ even supports gesture control to be intuitively usable on smartphones and tablets as well. Now tell me, doesn’t this set that responsive content slider far enough apart to justify a closer look?

  • Abandon Skeuomorphism with these 30 Free Icon Sets in Flat Design

    The modern way of emphasizing cleanliness, sharpness and objectivity in your designs is by trying to avoid all lavish stylistic choices such as textures, fake feeling of 3d dimension, illusory decorations, shiny/glossy effects and giving the flat style a shot. Being here not just since yesterday, it certainly becomes obvious that this trend not only has put down its roots but also has matured dramatically in a short period of time. The concept implies getting the most out of minimalism, harmoniously marrying Swiss style with a bright coloring and some interesting solutions (such as a long 5 o’clock shadow). It sticks to simple shapes, solid color backdrops, neat sharp typography, generous portions of whitespace, intuitive glyphs, gorgeous bright coloring in order to provide designs with an absolutely clean, crisp, brilliantly simple, properly-balanced and highly enticing look. Not only the large-scale artworks are able to gain considerable advantages from it, but basic GUI elements such as buttons, icons, and controls can benefit as well.
