CSS3: Resources, Tutorials and Demos

Dear readers: pleeeeeeeease, don’t be afraid to try something new! It’s one thing to find out about a cool new design technique, like using CSS3, but it’s another thing entirely to actually put what you’ve learned about into practice. If you don’t try new things, you’ll get stuck in a design rut and that’s not good for you or for your clients. In this article, I’ve gathered some of the web’s best CSS3 resources, tutorials and demos so you can find out what CSS3 is, learn how to use it and see what kinds of cool things have been done with it so far (like the iOS icons in the teaser image above done with no images, just pure CSS).

Yes, CSS3 has been supported by select browsers for a while now, but that just makes this article all the better because in it I was able to include both brand new and slightly older CSS3 resources, which makes for a whopper of a post. Yes, the older (2009-ish, so not that old) resources are still worth taking a look at. When I was in Barnes and Noble recently, I had to buy a design book that was from 2008 because they didn’t have any that were newer on the particular subject I wanted. It turned out to be a great resource, despite not being “current”. Some things just don’t change that much in the course of a few years and the links I’ve included here are still very usable.

5 Cool Ways to Use Paper in Your Office

So how can you integrate paper into your workflow other than simply drawing on your desk? Here’s five suggestions:

Clip Board

A personal favorite of mine, the clip board is portable and can store extra paper. It’s where I currently do most of my sketching.

Drafting Table

If you have the room, a drafting table can be an awesome addition to your office. It’s not only a good place to draw, but oftentimes they can store your supplies and some even come with their own light source. Many have an adjustable surface as well to make time spent there as ergonomic as possible.

Electronic Paper

Smart paper systems like that from Livescribe combine the best of paper and the digital realm. Everything you write can be recorded for playback, searched and shared. The accompanying pen even comes with apps.

Easel

An easel can be a great platform for creating quick charts or wireframes but is probably not best suited for logo sketching.

Hang On Wall

What’s to stop you from tacking up a huge sheet of paper on your wall? This could be a great addition to your office, especially if you want to reference your sketches from time to time without rummaging through a messy stack of papers.
Pros and Cons of Using Paper In Design…
