August Meetup: How to improve the design of your next web project.

  • Aug 23, 2010 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Dear Members: Our August meetup will be hosted by The Creative Company, downtown. I've updated the location info and provided an outline below. Goal: To help attendees think about the value of design and why they should put it in the forefront, backing it up with excellent code. Example: Posterous v. Tumbler Method 1: Design Considerations - Consistency throughout the site (limiting colors, text) Reduces complexity of CSS - Clear visual hierarchy - Design with the goal in mind; entire site should serve that goal. Method 2: Accessibility - What is the REASON that this code was used, not what is the actual code? - JavaScript Degradation - Text replacement vs. images of text - Don't rely on tricks. Think about basic functionality, then improve with effects. Conclusion, Questions Cheers, Ben

    Really enjoyed the overview of the presenting company, The Learning Company... they're a very intriguing shop with good knowledge to share and very effective presentation. The info was overly generalized, but with an hour to present to a very widely ranged audience, that's to be expected. Would love to hear more in depth presentations from this crew.
