Art and Design: Spot the Difference


What is the difference between art and design – these days, is there a difference? It is an ongoing discussion, and is a philosophical point as opposed to a scientific issue. There are some very black and white areas in the distinctions between the two disciplines, but also some very gray areas. In this article I will be pointing out the clear-cut differences, and addressing the undefined points.

Part 1: How to Turn a Design Image Into a Working Web Page


Do you sometimes struggle taking a design image and turning it into a working web page? Does your development start out well, but then you can’t seem to get one part of the design working? Are wireframes easier for you to create than code? Do you make it through development only to find that your site loads slowly and difficult to maintain?

Many designers have trouble turning their design images into working HTML/CSS web pages (some don’t even code at all), and often that trouble comes from their approach to developing the design and how they think about the development process prior to writing a single line of code.

Part 2: How to Turn a Design Image Into a Working Web Page


In part 1 of this post we took a design template and thought about how best to turn the design into a working web page. Once we had an idea of how to approach the development of the page, we set up the basic layout for our site. However, we left off with an empty layout that was in great need of some real content inside. So what are we waiting for? Let’s start filling in that layout and finish developing the page.

Minimalist Web Design: When Less is More


// // As designers, we all know that a minimalist design can achieve beautiful results.

Still, many designers have trouble creating one; either they have a hard time making a page with so few elements look good or the final result just doesn’t look “complete.”

There are many articles on the Web about minimalism and this article aims to help you achieve a minimalist design that is beautiful but not bare.

To top it off, we’ll present a small showcase of minimalist designs, so that you can analyze why some designs work and others don’t.

What Is Minimalist Design?

Minimalist design has been described as design at its most basic, stripped of superfluous elements, colors, shapes and textures… Sigue leyendo

Ruby Lerner: Preparing Artists for a D.I.Y.W.O. World



by Jocelyn K. Glei
What do Futurefarmers, Pamela Z, Vijay Iyer, Miranda July, Golan Levin, Rebecca Solnit, Elizabeth Streb, Basil Twist, and the Yes Men all have in common? They’ve all received grants from Creative Capital. Founded in 1999, Creative Capital is a pioneering arts organization that funds (and nurtures) artists based on a 360-degree model inspired by the best practices of the venture capital community.The idea is that artists don’t just need money, they also need counseling, connections, community, and career development. Creative Capital grantees don’t just get a check, they get a partner, and in many ways, a mentor. Sigue leyendo

Should you be checking in on Foursquare?


When I was writing the post yesterday about Foursquare users, I edited out a section that was related but off point. But it lives on here.

A while ago, Rohit Bhargava pondered aloud if announcing your travel locations was a privacy leak. About a month ago, Jennifer Leggio posted about privacy loopholes and considerations before checking in. A couple weeks ago, my colleague Tom Cummings asked “What company will be first to say that employees aren’t allowed to check-in while on the job?

So I wonder, just because you can check in on Foursquare, should you?

Consider these situations: Sigue leyendo

The coming melt-down in higher education (as seen by a marketer)


For 400 years, higher education in the US has been on a roll. From Harvard asking Galileo to be a guest professor in the 1600s to millions tuning in to watch a team of unpaid athletes play another team of unpaid athletes in some college sporting event, the amount of time and money and prestige in the college world has been climbing.

I’m afraid that’s about to crash and burn. Here’s how I’m looking at it. Sigue leyendo

How to negotiate a better salary – even now


TARA WEISS, FORBES.COM

David Hoffman, the chief executive officer of the executive search firm DHR, in Chicago, recalls a client who was recently offered $100,000 less than he felt he deserved for a job. Instead of jumping at the offer because of the tough job market, the candidate, together with Hoffman, negotiated and managed to meet the company in the middle. They described the candidate’s unique fit for the job and the difficulty he’d have with his relocation to a more expensive city. They got the employer to boost the offer by $50,000.

Negotiating a pay rise in a tough job market can usually be done, as long as they want you in the first place. Sigue leyendo

Kiss your workload goodbye


KATH LOCKETT

Research shows 90 per cent of managers drown in the classic time wasters such as meetings, dealing with crises, mediating disputes and micro-managing instead of delegating, outsourcing or ignoring them altogether.

She Googled herself to check for unflattering links. Then she changed her Facebook privacy setting so no one could see beyond her profile picture. She updated her profile on LinkedIn. Sigue leyendo
