Stumbled across 30 HTML Best Practices post by Jeffrey Way (editor with Nettuts) and found it worth sharing.
Though the article title suggests it’s for beginners but I would say its useful for experts too. You may find lot of such articles via google search but I like the way Jeffrey has written.
I had created 3R theory for myself sometime back, you can try and see if it adds value for you.
- Render in your style (not replicate)

Google Doodle for Martha Graham (American dancer and choreographer) left me awestruck by the animation of Martha dancing and the impressions by her movement form into word – Google. The smoothness of figure with drapes flowing so seamlessly kept me pressing F5 again and again to digest the flawless work. Especially when the character forms double ‘o’ by flying into the air and the closure with a powerful leap.

There are times when as designers we need to quickly churn out few designs and we keep looking for the right images.
Frantically searching multiple photo-stock sites in different tabs and the ticking minutes just add to the aggravation. Still we are just not able to get the right shot with the right background. Looking at the heavily designed backgrounds in an image with the thought of extracting an object from it gives goose pimples to some of the designers.
I found a very helpful tutorial which provides different techniques for Read the rest of this entry »

In most of the design communities that I subscribe to, I find designers facing difficulty related to colors displayed on a Windows machine for the creatives designed on a MacBook. Though the software used to access the design is same (Adobe Photoshop) but the moment file is accessed on Windows Photoshop, the result is devastating. Colors look washed out and whole creativity seems dead.
We all know that Mac OSX have an excellent reproduction of colors and high quality display. Henceforth we might not be able to meet the colors display 100% but at least 85% can be captured in Windows Photoshop
This was a problem I had also faced and below is what I found as a resolution:-) Read the rest of this entry »

During one of my Saturday evening coffee breaks at CCD, Vivek showed me the way towards the Church of Google – I was mesmerized as I read through it. I use Google day and night like crazy but never thought how addicted and dependent we have become. Googlism is the religion most of us have unknowingly adapted and are now addicted to it. Do we need a proof to agree on this? Obviously No!
Google is our Internet God. I’m unable to recall life before google existed. Search engines like AltaVista, AOL, Lycos, and others existed but I was not loyal to any till the time google came
- Google answers all our prayers
- Google is our Omniscient God – Knows almost everything and its existence can be scientifically proved. The immense universal knowledge provided by Google is available to all of us and that too in an organized manner
- Gives Unconditionally – Google gives its user unconditionally, irrespective of caste, religion, age it shows the results
- Google being Immortal, Being Infinite, Can challenge your Gray cells
Path to the Google Church is not far away – http://www.thechurchofgoogle.org/
I love the way multiple proofs have been provided and the best part is the prayer section.
