Earlier this week Adobe launched a preview of a WYSISYG web design project currently codenamed “Muse.” Though it looked promising, disappointed and even angry reactions from the web community are already all over the web.
With all the time, effort and money that Adobe spends on creating a “code free” solution for designing websites, you’d think that they would be able to create something decently usable by now. So what’s holding them back? Today we’ll take a brief walk down memory lane, starting all the way back at PageMill, to see if we can discover any reoccurring themes in Adobe’s history with web designers.
Steve Jobs has resigned as CEO of Apple in a letter to Apple’s Board of Directors. In his letter, Steve asks to remain Chairman of the Board and appoints Tim Cook as his successor. The board has approved these requests, effective immediately. Jobs will still be “active” at Apple and is expected to continue to be involved with company strategy.
To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:
I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.
Imagine if people could actually look inside your stomach and see what you’ve eaten. How strange would that be? Well, for ants, that’s a reality. Their transparent stomachs let us see what they’ve ingested based on color.
Photographer and scientist Mohamed Babu placed colorful sugar drops inside his garden and captured these ants while eating. “Some of the ants even wandered from one color to another, creating new combinations in their bodies,” Babu said. His inspiration?
Photography is one of your most powerful resources as a designer. Here we’ll take a look at some clever and unique ways to create photo-centric designs using multiple images.

As a user I really like to find a well designed footer in a website. I think it is nice to know that the designer was thinking about everything when putting the layout together, I feel happy to find a beautiful design “from header to footer.” And by that I don’t mean that the layout must be fancy, I just mean that is nice to find a nice image, illustration or simply well organized info and maybe some nice and elegant icons. So based in all that, today we decided to gather a list showing a few examples of footers in web design. And I have to say that this time around – we already showed footers here twice: nov/2010 and dec/2009 – it was harder to find interesting examples to show. Guess footers are being forgotten lately, what do you think?
Yesterday I had the pleasure to meet the great HDR photographer Trey Ratcliff, the guy behind the world famous travel photography blog Stuck in Customs in a really nice Photowalk around Stanford University. His photos are an explosion of colors, they are pure inspiration. I even remember the first time I saw his work, back in 2008, and I was not familiar with HDR, so the beauty of the images got my attention and I wanted to know more about the technique and the guy behind that blog.
