rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

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. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


Who sponsors Drupal development? (2016-2017 edition)

Last year, Matthew Tift and I examined Drupal.org’s commit data to understand who develops Drupal, how much of that work is sponsored, and where that sponsorship comes from. We published our analysis in a blog post called “Who Sponsors Drupal Development?”. A year later, I wanted to present an update. This year’s report will also cover additional data, including gender and geographical diversity, and project sponsorship. Understanding how an open-source project works is important because it establishes a benchmark for project health and scalability. Scaling an open-source project is a difficult task. As an open-source project’s rate of adoption grows, the number of people that benefit from the project also increases. Often the open-source project also becomes more complex as it expands, which means that the economic reward of helping to improve the project decreases. A recent article on the Bitcoin and Ethereum contributor communities illustrates this disparity perfectly. Ethereum…

Saving SVG with Space Around It from Illustrator

Say you have a graphic like this in Adobe Illustrator: Note how the art doesn’t touch the edges of the artboard. Say you want that space around it, and you want to save it as SVG for use on the web. Nope: Save for Web THE CLAW! You’ll see space around here, but unfortunately the classic Save for Web dialog doesn’t export as SVG at all, so that’s not really an option. They are already calling this a “legacy” feature, so I imagine it’ll be gone soon. Nope: Export As The “Export As” feature supports SVG, and you’ll likely be pretty pleased with the output. It’s fairly optimized, cruft-free, and pretty much ready to use on the web. But… it crops to the art with no option to change that, so we’ll lose the space around that we’re shooting for here. A possible work around here is putting a rectangle…

Want to expand your Google Analytics skills or land a full-time job? Start here.

People often contact Viget about our analytics training offerings. Because the landscape has changed significantly over the past few years, so has our approach.

Tips In Choosing Website Color Schemes (With BONUS Online Tools)

When you create a website, one of the first things that you need to focus on is web design. Aside from picking the right layout for your pages, your choice of color schemes can make or break the whole package. Color scheme is about considering the interplay of colors in three major aspects: complementation, contrast, and vibrancy. Choosing the right colors is one of the most difficult phases in web designing and the process can be very challenging especially for those who are new in the field. You should not worry too much, though, because there are available online tools that you can use to help you select the perfect color schemes to use for your page. What is the importance of colors in websites? Here are some of the reasons why choosing the right color schemes is extremely important: 1. Creates an emotional connection Colors generally trigger moods or…

Acquia a leader in 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management

I’m on vacation this week, and I’ve been trying to disconnect and soak up time with my family. However, I had to make an exception to write a quick but exciting blog post, as Acquia was named a leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management. This marks Acquia’s placement as a leader for the fourth year in a row, solidifying our position as one of the top three vendors in Gartner’s report. Acquia recognized as a top 3 leader, next to Adobe and Sitecore, in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management.Early in my career I didn’t fully understand or value the role of industry analysts like Gartner. Experience has taught me that strong analyst reports provide credibility and expose vendors to new markets and customers. It’s easy to underestimate the importance of this kind of recognition for Acquia, and by extension for Drupal.…

More Gotchas Getting Inline SVG Into Production—Part II

The following is a guest post by Rob Levin and Chris Rumble. Rob and Chris both work on the product design team at Mavenlink. Rob is also creator and host of the SVG Immersion Podcast and wrote the original 5 Gotchas article back in ’14. Chris, is a UI and Motion Designer/Developer based out of San Francisco. In this article, they go over some additional issues they encountered after incorporating inline SVGs in to Mavenlink’s flagship application more then 2 years ago. The article illustrations were done by Rob and—in the spirit of our topic—are 100% vector SVGs! Wow, it’s been over 2 years since we posted the 5 Gotchas Getting SVG Into Production article. Well, we’ve encountered some new gotchas making it time for another follow up post! We’ll label these 6-10 paying homage to the first 5 gotchas in the original post 🙂 Gotcha Six: IE Drag &…

Is It Time to Finally Kill Off the Homepage?

As with most things in web design, the homepage has been branded dead or dying many times over the years. They’ve been replaced by magazine-style front page designs, bypassed by landing pages and cut out entirely by social media. Except none of these things killed the homepage. Instead, they joined it as part of a more intricate set of interactions with visitors – each one playing an important role in a more complex web. Now, the latest person calling for the head of homepages is Optimizely’s Cara Harsham, who wrote for the Moz blog last week, claiming her company has “successfully killed THE homepage”. Well folks, looks like it’s time to get those funeral suits pressed again. Personalization killed the homepage The crux of Cara Harsham’s article is that brands need to show users customised content based on their needs and previous interactions, thereby making the generic homepage irrelevant. Her article makes a lot of…

Snap Animation States

There are many ways to make icons for a website. Inline SVG is scalable, easy to modify with CSS, and can even be animated. If you’re interested in learning more about the merits of using inline SVG, I recommend reading Inline SVG vs Icon Fonts. With ever increasing browser support, there’s never been a better time to start working with SVGs. Snap Animation States is a JavaScript plugin built around Snap.svg to help create and extend icon libraries with scaleable, editable SVG icons. Snap Animation States makes it easy to load and animate those SVGs with a simple schema. Getting Started Lets start with a basic SVG hamburger menu. This one was made using Affinity Designer, but there are many other free (Inkscape) and paid for (Adobe Illustrator) options available for making vector images. <svg width=”100%” height=”100%” viewBox=”0 0 65 60″ style=”fill-rule:evenodd;clip-rule:evenodd;stroke-linejoin:square;stroke-miterlimit:1.5;” fill=”none” stroke=”#000″ stroke-width=”10″> <g> <path class=”hamburger-top” d=”m 5,10…

Adobe XD vs. Sketch Comparison For The Best UX Design

In the world of UX design, using the best software can make a huge difference. In the past, Adobe Photoshop has been lording it over other graphics design software as the go-to app for making amazing UX design. However, Mac-based app Sketch is steadily gaining ground as a powerful UX design software. Adobe has made several improvements to make it useful for UI designing. Now, Adobe Photoshop has Artboards, Smart Guides, and an overall improved export workflow. However, the main drawback of Photoshop is that it’s primarily a photo editing tool. This is the reason why Adobe Experience Design CC (or Adobe XD) was born: to offer a purely UX-generating tool. In this article, we will look into the two popular UX design apps and what their respective strengths and weaknesses are. Comparison of Adobe XD and Sketch OS Compatibility Sketch is only available for MacOS users. Adobe XD, on…

7 Topics that Should be Covered During a Digital Discovery Workshop (including 70+ Specific Questions You Should Ask)

Discovery Workshops play an important role in the success of any development project. If a Discovery Workshop is not conducted the right manner, its value can be lost. At the beginning of a project, Discovery Workshops are the part of the “Discovery Phase,” which can be considered as the courtship period, during which a strategic partner usually collaborates with his client to understand the project’s requirements and functional specifications, and to discuss content modelling, solution architecture and so on. The aim is to define the project’s business goals by fitting the pieces together. This is the foundation of any project. However, a successful Discovery Workshop is only achieved when the right set of questions are asked. Here is my list of questions that I consider are important to ask while you are onsite with client, discussing the details of his or her project. For me, the right set of questions…

The Many Tools for Shape Morphing

To no one’s surprise, I’m sure, there are lots of different ways to do the same thing on the web. Shape morphing, being a thing on the web, is no different. There are some native technologies, some libraries that leverage those, and some libraries that do things all on their own. Let’s look at some of the options (with demos) and weigh the advantages and disadvantages. SMIL The original, native technology for shape morphing is SMIL. We have both a guide to SMIL on CSS-Tricks, and an article talking about replacements for it, since it doesn’t work in Microsoft browsers and Blink threatened to yank it at one point. I wouldn’t suggest doing important work in SMIL but it is OG shape morphing. See the Pen Sitepoint Challenge #1 in SVG and SMIL by Noah Blon (@noahblon) on CodePen. Our article How SVG Shape Morphing Works covers SMIL shape morphing…
