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.

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.

Step Up Your Demo Game

When we’re working with a client, we need to make sure that they are able to stay informed and involved throughout the entire project process. Conducting periodic demos of our work is one way to keep them in the loop. Whether we’re sharing the first piece of functionality that’s been built or walking through an entire site before launch, demos give clients the chance to see our development work. It also enables them to provide feedback during the early stages of development so they can help shape the end result. Demos are a critical part of the design and development process because they turn abstract ideas into a reality, answer questions, address issues, and demonstrate value. They help us communicate with a range of audiences, including core members of the client team, project stakeholders, content creators, or other vendors. From sharing progress and demonstrating functionality to getting approval and providing…

GovHack 2017: Interacting with Government Data

GovHack is an annual hackathon that runs in Australia and New Zealand, where participants have 46 hours to create innovative new products using the open data published by government bodies. It started in 2007 with a single event held in Canberra, and has now grown to more than 40 locations and 3,000 participants. Acquia was thrilled to provide support to GovHack for a 2nd year in 2017. GovHack provides an important opportunity for the community to interact with government data – with the support and encouragement of the publishing agencies. For almost a decade now, government agencies have been making an increasing amount of data available for anyone to use – but doing so is not always easy. And making something relatable with this data requires a mix of different skills. It’s not all about programmers. Effectively using data also needs story tellers, graphic designers, and scientists. Connecting teams with…

Highrise — Three Years Later…

Three years ago today, Basecamp announced Highrise was spinning off as our own company. We knew we had a good tool on our hands that was already well loved by tens of thousands of users (some of whom are celebrating 10 year anniversaries every day!).

But over time you can see how far we’ve come:Three years ago vs Todayicons defined below from top to bottom and left to right across the image… icons not part of Highrise, though emojis definitely are available :)🐷 — Latest activity filters so you can get to what matters to you quickly whether it’s notes, emails, files or team stats.🐶 — Good Morning (or Evening), our Group Inbox, so whether it’s your incoming leads, your existing customers or even incoming…

Using Custom Properties to Modify Components

Instead of using custom properties to style whole portions of a website’s interface I think we should use them to customize and modify tiny components. Here’s why. Whenever anyone mentions CSS custom properties they often talk about the ability to theme a website’s interface in one fell swoop. For example, if you’re working at somewhere like a big news org then we might want to specify a distinct visual design for the Finance section and the Sports section – buttons, headers, pull quotes and text color could all change on the fly. Custom properties would make this sort of theming easy because we won’t have to add a whole bunch of classes to each component. All we’d have to do is edit a single variable that’s in the :root, plus we can then edit those custom props with JavaScript which is something we can’t do with something like Sass variables.…

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…

Oxygen – The WordPress Visual Site Builder for Real Designers?

WordPress page builders are generally shunned by those who know how to code. They are generally bloated and slow. And you are offered very limited customization options. But what if there was a visual site builder meant for advanced, professional website designers? It turns out there is! It’s called Oxygen, and it’s quickly becoming the tool of choice for WordPress web designers. Notice that with Oxygen, you design your entire site – content, headers, footers, menus, etc. It totally replaces your WordPress theme. All pages are constructed from fundamental HTML elements – section, div, h1…6, p, span, a, img, and a few more. Then, you visually edit CSS properties to get everything looking the way you want. So unlike a typical page builder, you can design anything. It’s like hand-coding, but visually. Think Webflow, but for WordPress. To integrate with WordPress and design layouts for posts, custom post types, archives,…
