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?

SVG Fallback in Older Browsers: Alternatives to JavaScript

SVG sees widespread support by recent browsers these days. Still plenty of people do not surf the web using one of these modern browsers. Especially the older versions of Internet Explorer are used in relevant numbers worldwide. And these older versions cause problems, not only, but also when it comes to SVG.

Of course we have JavaScript with its numerous possibilities to care for proper fallback solutions, but what if JavaScript is not an option? Keep calm and read on. We have a row of alternatives for you. Some of which mean even lesser effort than coming forth with a full-fledged JavaScript…

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.

10 Tools to Create Beautiful Infographics and Visualize Data

They used to say content is king. But what really makes up content? Gone are the days when “content” meant purely text. Today, if you want to engage and enchant your customers, your content must have some visual cues. The human brain processes visual information much quicker than text. And with web 2.0 visuals like infographics, you can convey complex, boring data in a meaningful manner. Although infographics make things simpler, it can be time-consuming to create them. Here is a list of my top 10 tools to create your own beautiful infographics and more visual content (no Photoshop required!).

30 Free Mobile App UI PSDs for Developers: Summer 2014 Edition

While prototyping interface designs, we are always striving for the spur that will force our imagination to run riot. Inspiration gives us a boost, but when it comes to an actual workflow, we are in need of something more pragmatic and effective such as sets of pre-defined components. Even if you are a great supporter of creating everything from scratch, sometimes you can be caught in a situation where you are running out of time and the more modular approach is like a lifebuoy to a drowning person. It allows killing two birds with one stone: invest your precious time in a project and still save some money.
