MasterCard unveils its first rebrand in 20 years

Designing the perfect notification UX

Notifications are all around us on the web and on mobile. Originally intended to help our user experience and usability in general, that’s not always been the case in practice since notifications can quickly become an annoyance if they’re designed poorly or not managed properly. From desktop-based notifications to the notifications you can toggle on […]

Is no design the new design?

Ah, I remember the days well… when everything was a shiny, drop-shadowed gradient, with at least 6 pieces of clip art, and a stock photo of 5 celebratory office workers. We loved pictures of keyboards with nonsensical buttons on them, and 3D-effect stick people holding glossy symbols. And then what happened? iOS 7 came along. The […]

Atomic streamlines integration for Sketch users

Launched this week, Atomic’s new plugin for Sketch is a free addition that streamlines artwork transfer between the two for a much accelerated workflow.

The right way to increase your freelance rates without losing clients

You aren’t being paid… Scratch that. You aren’t being paid what you’re worth. You bend over backwards for your clients. But they have no idea how hard you work. How much effort it takes to do what you do. So they nickel and dime you to death. They use special phrases to send you hints. […]

The best new portfolio sites, July 2016

Hello, Readers! This month, we have the usual mix of minimalist sites, traditional-feeling sites, more than a few asymmetrical sites, and a couple of wildly experimental sites that look really cool, but are practically unusable. I mean, things get wild in here: Hell freezes over; oil and water mix; I say something nice about a […]

Poll: Are we on the brink of a design revolution?

In the last couple of years we’ve noticed more and more websites following the same basic format. This is typically referred to as design convergence; two designers, approaching the same problem, might reasonably arrive at the same solution—even more so, if they’re aware of each other’s work. It’s common to hear complaints from designers (rarely […]

Web technologies that (thankfully) died

Hard as it is to believe, it’s been over 20 years since the World Wide Web has become a mainstream part of our collective culture. It has played a major part in changing how we communicate and how we work. There aren’t many aspects of our lives that haven’t been changed by the web and […]

Deal: Grab 84% off stock images from Depositphoto

Everyone wants to capture that one perfect image for their site. Art direction does more than layout, or even content, to set the tone of your site. But unfortunately custom photography is budget-sapping, and deadline-wrecking. The good news is, that perfect shot probably already exists… To help you find it, our sister-site MightyDeals.com, has managed […]

Face facts: You’re replaceable, and there’s only 2 things you can do about it

Let’s say that co-owners of a business who know nothing about creating a website (except that they need one) are in the market for a website. They need a site that gives potential customers all the info they need about the boutique and includes an e-commerce section, too. And ideally, they’d like the project to be […]

Infographic: Fontsmith’s complete guide to typography terms

As a web designer, typography is paramount. Even on sites where images or video are the main focus, the way you treat text will make or break your site’s usability and aesthetic. Even so, most of us are not expert typographers. We may have a handle on a few of the basic terms, and the […]

The essential role of project management in UX

Where digital and UX are concerned, project managers deal with a number of aspects such as team resourcing, scheduling meetings, and financial planning (to name just a few tasks) on a daily basis.
