The Colors of Your Favorite Christmas Movies

The Colors of Your Favorite Christmas Movies


Ah the holidays. A time for friends, family, and traditions. In my family, we watch westerns on Christmas. Don't ask me why. I know friends that look forward to their annual A Christmas Story marathon on TBS. And then there are others that prefer to have John McClane over for a little mayhem around the holidays.

Holiday Flowers

Holiday Flowers


With the holidays upon us, we see many lovely decorations and flowers pretty much everywhere we go. It's impossible to walk into a store of any kind without seeing an infiltration of the traditional red, green, and white. Some of my most favorite types of decorations come in the form of flowers.

The most traditional plant we see this time of year is the poinsettia.

Adding some holiday poinsettia's to your digital designs is a must this time of year.

Many other holiday arrangements include the use of red or white berries.

5 Web Design Trends for 2014

5 Web Design Trends for 2014


Well, it's finally December and it's often a time where people tend to reflect on the past twelve months and get excited about new ideas for the future. I would like to take this time to highlight 5 design trends of the web that we have seen creep up and will definitely be around in 2014.

Continuous Scrolling eliminates the need for the user to click to get to the next story or image. This is a leading factor in changes of other elements of the design.

Expo by Pixel Union

Larger Fonts. One major reason for larger fonts is improved screen resolution as well as responsive font design. The use of media queries and the new CSS3 relative font sizing units allow more flexibility in this area of design.

Verb Regular Webfonts by Yellow Design Studio

Olio Family by Max Little

Prohibition Typeface by Hold Fast Foundry

Responsive Mobile Design. Websites of 2014 need to be responsive. This is one trend that isn't turning back. New enhancements in CSS3 makes this easier and easier all the time.

Flat Design is the topic of conversation every day in the world of web design. Even though Windows technically went flat first, once Apple embraced this design trend as well, it is everyone now.

Parallax Scrolling displays the webpage as multiple layers whereas the background layer scrolls at a different speed than the foreground layer.
