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.

The Pings menu is back!

A couple days ago we launched Phase I of a Basecamp 3 refresh/redesign. One of the more significant changes was a redesigned nav bar at the top that consolidated the Pings, Hey, and Campfire menus into a single, unified Hey! inbox menu.Sometimes when you push for a big change, you overstep. We overstepped, plain and simple. Our customers let us know loud and clear that Pings are a separate category of notification that continues to deserve its own special place in the nav bar. They’re right — when someone’s trying to get ahold of you directly, it’s important to elevate that above notifications that inform a whole group.We’re sorry we let some of you down.So today we’re bringing back the Pings menu as its own menu (Campfires are still consolidated into the new Hey menu). Over time we’ll continue to explore ways to improve notifications, but as of now, Pings live alone! We also may…

Accessibility Testing Tools

There is a sentiment that accessibility isn’t a checklist, meaning that if you’re really trying to make a site accessible, you don’t just get to check some things off a list and call it perfect. The list may be imperfect and worse, it takes the user out of the equation, so it is said. Karl Groves once argued against this: I’d argue that a well-documented process which includes checklist-based evaluations are better at ensuring that all users’ needs are met, not just some users. I mention this because you might consider an automated accessibility testing tool another form of a checklist. They have rules built into them, and they test your site against that list of rules. I’m pretty new to the idea of these things, so no expert here, but there appears to be quite a few options! Let’s take a look at some of them. aXe The Accessibility…

The Changing Face of Web Design in 2018

Inspired Magazine Inspired Magazine – creativity & inspiration daily One of the interesting recent developments in web design trends is actually the trend away from trends… or in other word what is happening is a kind of regression to simpler ways, at least from those in the know. On the other side of the coin, there’s a big shift happening in certain types of corporate sites, especially some British and American media sites, where there’s a tendency to overload pages with so much extraneous content that it can severely impact on the ability of the user to see the content they actually arrived to see. If the first two paragraphs sound hopeless tangled, well that’s a very succinct allegory for the state of web development in 2018… tangled. It’s a problem we need to sort out, because it won’t be good for anyone if web standards continue to slip. We’ll…

ABEM. A more useful adaptation of BEM.

BEM (Block Element Modifier) is a popular CSS class naming convention that makes CSS easier to maintain. This article assumes that you are already familiar with the naming convention. If not you can learn more about it at to catch up on the basics. The standard syntax for BEM is: block-name__element-name–modifier-name I’m personally a massive fan of the methodology behind the naming convention. Separating your styles into small components is far easier to maintain than having a sea of high specificity spread all throughout your stylesheet. However, there are a few problems I have with the syntax that can cause issues in production as well as cause confusion for developers. I prefer to use a slightly tweaked version of the syntax instead. I call it ABEM (Atomic Block Element Modifier): [a/m/o]-blockName__elementName -modifierName An Atomic Design Prefix The a/m/o is an Atomic Design prefix. Not to be confused with Atomic…

How to make my company big

How do we get bigger? Get more money? Grow the team? Get bigger office space? More clients?My three year old daughter has been literally dreaming of going to a magic show. So we went to the first one that crossed our path and seemed relatively kid-appropriate.I regretted going immediately.The tickets were general admission. We got there early just to wait in long line. The heat was cranked up. I had to lug around our winter gear while trying to entertain my kid as her boredom progressed.Sitting in the theater made the regret stronger.A larger ballroom had some of those temporary moveable walls inside to make smaller rooms. We were in a smaller room.I’ve been doing and watching magic my whole life. I’ve seen the David Copperfield and Penn & Tellers. This wasn’t any of those.It felt claustrophobic.And then there was the stage. There weren’t many rows of people. We were in row 8.…

A Very Long Break

This post was originally written on August 15, 2014. What’s most unusual is that I didn’t publish it as I typically publish everything that I pen here on this personal blog (and then I promptly forget that I wrote it). For whatever reason, I just felt like I couldn’t and I’m not entirely sure why as I was very comfortable with the idea of taking a very long break from building software. Of course, I was terribly wrong and I haven’t stopped writing software since. In fact, I’m doing more of it than I ever thought I would be doing at this point in my career. I guess I’m just not done… yet. That’s fine. But, I wanted to publish it anyways and I’m going to publish it without a single edit, so, remember… this was more than 3 years ago… Here you go: There’s nothing more scary than making a public…

[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,…
