24 Ways To Impress Your (Web Geek) Friends
Ho, ho, ho! This year I was asked to pen an article for the annual web geek advent calendar, 24 ways. I chose to tackle a problem that pops up very frequently for me: matching colors from a set palette for elements in a variety of shapes and sizes. Often times, using the color hex value from a palette may not yield the results you are looking for. Those are the times when you need to be a bit underhanded and cheat your colors. Wanna see what I mean? Head over to the latest 24 ways and have a gander at Cheating Color.
Last year’s 24 ways was chock full of great tips, and this year’s hasn’t been any different. I’ll leave you with a few of my favorites:
- Compose to a Vertical Rhythm, by Richard Rutter: Like music, typography needs rhythm too.
- A Message To You, Rudy - CSS Production Notes, by Andy Clarke: Simplify coding workflow with a team.
- Boost Your Hyperlink Power, by Jeremy Keith: Inject more semantic value into the humble hyperlink.
