I’m a freelancer, so I suppose in theory I get to work in a variety of places of all shapes and sizes, but sometimes you come across agencies that seem to have it “too good to be true”. Their offices are fab, they all have top of the range equipment, a fridge full of beverages, a table tennis table (that I’m not so fussed about as am crap at it, fusball much better), they harbour a friendly, relaxed yet productive atmosphere and the work they do is really nice… These are one of them. Not… envious… at all 🙂

Oh, and their website is quite nice too. Really like the minimalist approach – simple, clean and effective 🙂

Useful tutorial for creating Web Style guides

Courtesy of WebDesign Tuts+

Style guides have been around for quite a while now. Even before the days of the web, companies often needed to create consistent and unified visuals for their brand. This was and still is achieved through the use of brand or identity guidelines. Such guidelines are usually set out in a document and can contain information such as:

  • Brand colors
  • Typography, such as fonts, sizes, leading etc.
  • Logo positioning and how to use in different situations ie. print layout can differ from web layout
  • Tone of voice
  • This useful tutorial shows how to create a simple one.

    The Good Man – Experimental CSS Site

    The Good Man is an experimental CSS3 animation project created by Pedro Ivo Hudson. It’s a visual transcription of a narrative, created with HTML elements and animated with CSS3, using only web fonts (served by Google Web Fonts) and shapes so that it’s as scalable as possible. It was created as a graduation project in graphic design, as a study in animation code quirks and behaviors.
