8 Reasons Death By PowerPoint is Wrong

Tue, 07/14/2015 - 17:02 — julie

I know what you’re thinking. PowerPoint. Really? Wasn’t that done back in 2005 or so? Well, yes. And no. Actually, “it depends,” is a better answer.

The whole idea of “death by PowerPoint” is actually the result of people using PowerPoint badly. Where obnoxious slide transitions and clipart live, creativity left the building.

The combination of a lack of vision and simply terrible 10-year-old themes have given PowerPoint a worse reputation than it deserves. Basically, this application is just a tool. And like any other tool, it’s all about how you use it. To help lift this app out of the mud, today I’m going to share some of the best reasons PowerPoint is still actually a really great tool.

After a bit of digging round I found thankfully it had not been removed, but just hidden away. In this short video screencast we will show you how to access the save for web tool in Photoshop CC 2015. I’m sure a lot of people who like me will be wondering where this feature may have disappeared to.

iOS Game Design Guidelines for Beginners

Mon, 07/06/2015 - 12:38 — julie

Mobile games are a growing marketplace with more kids foregoing the Game Boy in lieu of a modern tablet. Even some adults are drawn into the gaming craze because it’s better than counting the seconds in a solemnly empty waiting room.

Apple’s iOS platform was on the original iPhone which then spawned a fantastic tablet device. The operating system has been around for almost a decade and the marketplace is already renowned across the world.

I’d like to cover some general ideas for game design on iOS platforms. Naturally you do need a great idea, but the implementation of this idea is paramount to success. And while there is a lot of competition there’s always room for a new blockbuster game to go viral, and for the creator to reap pecuniary rewards.

Diversity in Stock Photos

Fri, 07/03/2015 - 09:08 — julie

Whether we create it, use it, or consume it, most of us have a love-hate relationship with stock photography.

It’s an indispensable asset for businesses who want to create a visual identity that communicates who they are and what they do in the world. But the reality is that many stock photos don’t look much like real life, particularly when it comes to things like race and sexuality.

If you’re searching for white men or heterosexual couples, you won’t come up short.

Need an image everyone else can see themselves reflected in? Grab a coffee, you’ll be here awhile.

We expect the people in stock images to be appealing and well photographed. But increasingly, we’re demanding that they also reflect our authentic selves, which means portraying the kind of diverse relationships, families and situations we see around us every day in life.

Understanding CSS3 Flexbox for Responsive Design

Tue, 06/30/2015 - 13:15 — julie

Most developers are familiar with CSS floats and clearfix hacks to get proper multi-column layouts. These are still in use today because they work and have great support among a variety of browsers. However in 2009 a new display style named flex appeared on the map.

Since then flex has undergone a few changes to reach its current iteration. The flex value is an alternative to block elements floated and manipulated using media queries.

Instead developers can build a flexible container, flexbox for short. It’s great for mobile screens and responsive content for dynamic layouts and webapps. This guide will cover the fundamentals of CSS flexbox usage and some helpful resources for digging deeper into the topic.
