A cute little read-only Twitter client from James that only displays fully-formed tweets: no hashtags, no @-replies.
The “client hints” proposal looks really interesting: a way for user-agents to send data to the server without requiring the server to have a library of user-agent strings. But Scott has a few concerns about some of the details.
I really like Dan’s take on using Photoshop (or Fireworks) as part of today’s web design process. The problem is not with the tool; the problem is with the expectations set by showing comps to clients.
By default, presenting a full comp says to your client, “This is how everyone will see your site.” In our multi-device world, we’re quickly moving towards, “This is how some people will see your site,” but we’re not doing a great job of communicating that.
Andy’s talk from the Smashing Conference in Freiburg.
Leisa nails it. The real stumbling block with trying to change the waterfall-esque nature of agency work (of which Clearleft has certainly been guilty) can be summed up in two words: sign off.
And from a client’s perspective, this emphasis on sign-off is completely understandable.
It takes a special kind of client to take the risk and develop the level of trust and integration required to work the way that Mr Popoff-Walker any many, many other inhabitants of agency world would like to work.
Ell oh ell.
The companion website to Kevin Hoffman's IA Summit talk, this is a hugely valuable resource for an often-overlooked part of the design process: the kick-off meeting.
I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
This is just wonderful. "Please design a logo for me. With pie charts. For free."
Just rub it on and watch it grow. Gauranteed to satisfy your client.
Now when your satanic client tells you to make the logo bigger, you can always rock out.
It's funny because it's true.
