Handy bookmarks on UX design

donderdag, december 11th, 2014

People, or clients if I may, ask me a lot about how to look at UX for their input, mostly content.
Here are a few links to very good UX common knowledge on how a webdesign is perceived by visitors:


1. Smashing article on 10 useful usability findings and guidelines


2 Understanding the Z-layout
The Z layout gives you a great way to address your content and guide visitors to your call to action


3 Understanding the F-layout The F-layout is very useful for sites that will go in depth later on a page. Like newspapers or magazines

And the result.. Yomar Augusto workshop

dinsdag, oktober 11th, 2011

Last month I visited the Typography festival ‘Now we are talking’ at the F.A.S.T. Surf village in The Hague. It was an inspiring visit. At the fesitival I joined the workshop of Yomar Augusto to enhance my calligraphy and handwriting for the coming years. Our hometown is celebrating 500 years Jheronimus Bosch and I thought it would be nice to develop a type for this occassion.
This is one of the designs:

Working for Essent

donderdag, juli 15th, 2010

One of the main reasons I got so busy is that got a new project at Essent, an energy company in the Netherlands. My join up with Frontend heroes paid out there, THNX Guys.

It’s a nice work environment where I met lots of nice people and new colleges and, off course, new twitter friends!!
I’m working on an intern project in which I do designing and frontend work and discovering Movable Type. Also a nice blogging tool. To show you some designs, these are a few widgets I’ve been working on for a dashboard:


Content management gets a lot easier with CSS3

Afbeelding 1

A client asked for a nice ‘Polaroid foto effect’, but I didn’t want to get stuck in Photoshopping every photo. So here’s the result.
It won’t show everything in every browser, but it will in most any and all newer browsers.

The effect works as follows:
The border is simply a border, with the bottom border a bit longer.
Constrain your image to a certain measure.
(Now comes the css3 part)
Rotate the image by some percent.
Give it a shadow as final touch

And here you are. It will fit every foto in the same way.
Nice isn’t it?
