Landing pages help dictate a marketing campaign’s success: they’re what convert visits into sales. That’s a lot of pressure to put on a single web page! It’s also why it’s important to come up with great landing page design ideas before you get started. Luckily, we’re here to help you avoid any crash landings. With the right landing page design inspiration you can take your project to the next level.

But first things first: What is a landing page? It’s similar to a website, but it usually lacks navigation or links. Instead, it will often feature a bold action-oriented headline, and upon scrolling will feature some key points to emphasize the value of a product or event. This is typically concluded with some method of converting visitors to consumers and participants—often an email capture or purchase method. Sounds simple right? But there’s many ways to design a landing page, only some of which will be right for...

We are gathered here today….

Today I write in memory of Adobe Flash (née Macromedia), something that a bunch of people are actually too young to remember. I write this with love, longing, and a palpable sense of relief that it’s all over. I have come to praise Flash, to curse it, and finally to bury it.

We’ve been hearing about the death of Flash for a long time. We know it’s coming. December 2020 has been announced as the official timeframe for removal, but let’s be real about this: it’s dead. It’s super-dead. It’s people-are-selling-Flash-game-archives-on-Steam dead.

That last bit actually makes me happy, because Flash games were a huge part of my childhood, and the archives must be preserved. Before I’d ever heard of video cards, frames per second, and “git gud”, I was whiling away many an hour on disney.com, cartoonnetwork.com, MiniClip, Kongregate, and other sites, looking for games.

CSS stands for Cascaded Style Sheet. It is a style sheet language that defines the document’s presentation in a markup language like HTML. Cascaded style sheet differentiates the content and other visual presentation like colors, layout, fonts, and themes. This differentiation enhances access to the content and controls the specification of presentations. CSS defines a common theme to the selected web pages and is visible throughout the entire website. The details of the CSS file is kept separate to reduce the complex issues and redundant content structure.

CSS is available to overlap multiple images, that is, putting an image on the top of the other image. There are three methods for doing this. Let us take a look at each of them one by one.

1. Using CSS Grid:

A CSS Grid is the most potent, two-dimensional CSS feature that handles rows and columns and the content in it. You get to work with...

Like it or not, we’re slowly edging towards a two-tier web: those sites that are secure, and…everything else.

There was a time on the web, when we didn’t have SSL certificates, and lots of people’s data got stolen. To address the problem, and regain users’ trust SSL certificates were introduced to secure sites handling sensitive data. And because they were initially a niche technology, you paid through the nose for them.

(An SSL certificate, for those that don’t know, is the difference between http:// and https://)

Then, thanks in part to privacy initiatives, and in part to high-profile data breaches, a few big players decided that all data should be protected. And the next thing you know, Google’s using SSL certificates as a ranking factor. And then suddenly browsers are warning people that non-SSL certified sites are insecure and they should “Get Out of Here!” And before long your hobby blog about...

UXD stands for user experience design. This kind of design refers to a product’s design that offers a meaningful and enriching experience to the user of that product. The term “User Experience Design” is often interchangeably used with “UI design” and “usability.” But, the latter terms are a subset of user experience design. A user experience design is much more than the interface design of the product or a design that provides usability. A user experience designer also pays attention to the integration of the product. He or she is concerned with processes like product branding, product design, and usability factors. Moreover, they should also consider the efficiency of the product function.

The process of designing a user experience covers all the procedures as mentioned above that a UX designer handles before the device reaches the user’s hands. In this blog, we are going to...

It’s hard to believe that the early internet excluded commerce. Nowadays, the internet is the backbone of industry, making it easier than ever to set up shop and to turn your passions into an income. But getting started is only half the battle. To keep that shop up and running, you’ll need some kind of digital advertising.

Online advertising is a broad field that gives businesses many options for earning revenue. By OrangeCrush.

The good news is that, with no printing costs, digital ads tend to run cheaper than print ads. They are also more immediate: instead of persuading a consumer to travel to a brick-and-mortar store, digital ads can take them directly to a web page to make the purchase then and there.

Despite these conveniences, digital advertising is no quick win for businesses. Every brand is vying for attention on the internet, competing with not only other ads, but also entertainment content as well....

Some of the changes we are seeing with where we work are starting to pop up in the type of new tools made for designers and developers. More tools with remote collaboration as a key feature are increasing in popularity. (You’ll find a few of those here.)

Here’s what new for designers this month.

Webdesign Toolbox

Webdesign Toolbox is a collection of tools, apps, and resources all in one location for designers and developers. The best part of this resource is that it is human-curated, so every tool is quality checked and makes the list because it has been tested and researched. Search the collection by design, dev, stock, typography, UX, or workflow tools (and more) and use them to help create more efficiently. The collection is constantly growing, too.

CodeStream

CodeStream might be the new-world workflow tool for web designers and developers. It is made for remote teams to review code right...
