Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid.

[Basecamp 3 Redesign] Phase 1: New Nav and a unified Hey! Inbox.

Over the next few months we’ll be rolling out a visual refresh to make Basecamp 3 even easier to use — and more approachable for new users. Today we launch the first set of updates.Most products get more complicated as they go. More stuff, more screens, more options, more ways to do things. It’s natural — evolution tends to create more complex creatures over time. Software development is no different.That’s why it’s on us to push back on complexity and clutter as we go. If we’re smart about it, we can add power and clarity over time, while making everything feel simpler than before. With that in mind, we’re ready to share what we’ve been working on for you.Phase 1 goes lives todayFirst things first. This initial refresh is centered around simplifying the global navigation at the top of the screen.We’re going from this:(that’s a lot of stuff which can be especially intimidating for new users)To this:(simpler and more approachable,…

Evolution of img: Gif without the GIF

Colin Bendell writes about a new and particularly weird addition to Safari Technology Preview in this excellent post about the evolution of animated images on the web. He explains how we can now add an MP4 file directly to the source of an img tag. That would look something like this: <img src=”video.mp4″/> The idea is that that code would render an image with a looping video inside. As Colin describes, this provides a host of performance benefits: Animated GIFs are a hack. […] But they have become an awesome tool for cinemagraphs, memes, and creative expression. All of this awesomeness, however, comes at a cost. Animated GIFs are terrible for web performance. They are HUGE in size, impact cellular data bills, require more CPU and memory, cause repaints, and are battery killers. Typically GIFs are 12x larger files than H.264 videos, and take 2x the energy to load and…

How Domino’s Pizza Stands Out In A World Awash In Pizza

Domino’s Pizza was in the spotlight of the Wall Street Journal the other day. It was a front page story on the success of the Domino’s mobile app allowing you to track your order from start to delivery.Over 480,000 people have left reviews on the Apple app store giving it 4.8 stars out of 5.In the modern world, we continue to have more and more options for things like coffee, rides to the airport, clothes, and pizza. And as we get more and more options, they just become noise.Domino’s though has been successful at breaking through with a signal. Why?There are two very big lessons to take from the pizza chain and one potential pitfall.Open UpGiselle Auger, an assistant professor at Rhode Island College, involved 290 participants in a study on the effect of transparent organizations. It probably doesn’t shock you that the more transparent these organizations were to the outside world, the…

The User Experience of Design Systems

Rune Madsen jotted down his notes from a talk he gave at UX Camp Copenhagen back in May all about design systems and also, well, the potential problems that can arise when building a single unifying system: When you start a redesign process for a company, it’s very easy to briefly look at all their products (apps, websites, newsletters, etc) and first of all make fun of how bad it all looks, and then design this one single design system for everything. However, once you start diving into why those decisions were made, they often reveal local knowledge that your design system doesn’t solve. I see this so often where a new design system completely ignores for example the difference between platforms because they standardized their components to make mobile and web look the same. Mobile design is just a different thing: Buttons need to be larger, elements should float…

Slate’s URLs Are Getting a Makeover

Greg Lavallee writes about a project currently underway at Slate, where they’ve defined a new goal for themselves: Our goal is speed: Readers should be able to get to what they want quickly, writers should be able to swiftly publish their posts, and developers should be able to code with speed. They’ve already started shipping a lot of neat improvements to the website but the part that really interests me is where they focus on redefining their URLs: As a web developer and product dabbler, I love URLs. URLs say a tremendous amount about an application’s structure, and their predictability is a testament to the elegance of the systems behind them. A good URL should let you play with it and find delightful new things as you do. Each little piece of our new URL took a significant amount of planning and effort by the Slate tech team. The key…

Google Reminds Publishers Not to Accept Bribes for Links by @MattGSouthern

In response to a controversial article published by The Outline, Google has reminded publications to refrain from accepting bribes for links. The article in question claims that major publications on the web, including New York Times, CNN, and TechCrunch, have accepted payments from companies in exchange for positive coverage. Several writers, who remain anonymous, admitted to The Outline that they accept money for links. Some have done so for years, and people within the industry are well aware this is going on. Bribing journalists for links is becoming so common that it’s now the new norm, which makes it challenging […]The post Google Reminds Publishers Not to Accept Bribes for Links by @MattGSouthern appeared first on Search Engine Journal.

Making your web app work offline, Part 1: The Setup

This two-part series is a gentle introduction to offline web development. Getting a web application to do something while offline is surprisingly tricky, requiring a lot of things to be in place and functioning correctly. We’re going to cover all of these pieces from a high level, with working examples. This post is an overview, but there are plenty of more-detailed resources listed throughout. Article Series: The Setup (you are here!) The Implementation (posts tomorrow, stay tuned) Basic approach I’ll be making heavy use of JavaScript’s async/await syntax. It’s supported in all major browsers and Node, and greatly simplifies Promise-based code. The link above explains async well, but in a nutshell they allow you to resolve a promise, and access its value directly in code with await, rather than calling .then and accessing the value in the callback, which often leads to the dreaded “rightward drift.” What are we building?…

We have 10 days to save net neutrality

Last month, the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai, released a draft order that would soften net neutrality regulations. He wants to overturn the restrictions that make paid prioritization, blocking or throttling of traffic unlawful. If approved, this order could drastically alter the way that people experience and access the web. Without net neutrality, Internet Service Providers could determine what sites you can or cannot see. The proposed draft order is disheartening. Millions of Americans are trying to save net neutrality; the FCC has received over 5 million emails, 750,000 phone calls, and 2 million comments. Unfortunately this public outpouring has not altered the FCC’s commitment to dismantling net neutrality. The commission will vote on the order on December 14th. We have 10 days to save net neutrality. Although I have written about net neutrality before, I want to explain the consequences and urgency of the FCC’s upcoming…

Top 5 Text Editors for Designers Learning to Code

Okay, so you’ve decided it’s finally time to expand on your design expertise with some ninja coding skills. Congratulations! The good news is there are plenty of online resources to help you learn the basics and get your coding adventures off to a rolling start. Sooner or later, though, you’re going to have to fly solo and pen your own code. In fact, the sooner you do this, the better – because scribbling real code is by far the best way to learn, practise and improve. Which means, sooner or later, you’re going to need a good text editor – a program for typing unformatted text. This incredibly simple tool is the playground of all your coding escapades and modern text editors are a lot fancier than they used to be. Here are the top five text editors for designers learning to code. #1: Sublime Text ($70) Sublime Text calls itself “the text editor you’ll fall…
