Icons are everywhere. From app icons on home screens to graphic representations that lead users through a design, icon design is a big deal. There’s a fine art to good icon design. Not only does the element have to render recognizably at the smallest of sizes, good vector-based icons can be scaled to use in oversized proportions as well. Some designers are even using icon-style images for dominant visuals. So where do you start? Here’s a guide to...

Get as much information as possible (ask for three examples) For me, nothing provides more clarity ...

Hello WDD readers! Start the year right by ignoring your resolutions, and focusing on this latest installment of awesome portfolios. This month, we have a fairly eclectic collection to look at, with no one overriding theme. I have also discovered that website animation can sometimes look kind of blurry on Windows Remote Desktop, even when everything else looks sharp, so… there’s another use case for you all to consider. You’re welcome. Act Normal...

Every year, blogs like this one try to predict what’s going to happen in our industry over the next 12 months. Design is a product of its environment and good design reflects the world that it exists in; no one has a crystal ball, so unsurprisingly design predictions are wrong as often as they are right.

January is the time most of us cease reflecting on the year gone by, and start looking to the months ahead. It seems everyone has different ideas on what to expect in 2017 (you’ll read ours next week) and one of the most anticipated changes this year, is the introduction of CSS Grid Layout. Grid Layout allows us to define areas of a page, and determine how they stretch, scale, and respond to the viewport. Developed as a mature layout solution for...
