    Can you please have a look at the book again and upload pictures of the logos created around 1985?

    According to my calculations, 33 years is the average period a logo will reappear. Pretty excited what the next trend is :P

  • Posted to MaintainableCSS - an approach to writing modular, scalable and of course, maintainable CSS, Apr 18, 2016

    This technique would be useful only for people who excessively use Ctrl+F while working with the CSS file. :)

    Usually websites have consistent design, i.e. repeating styles for active, for example. Styles repetition comes handy in such cases, so I wouldn't drop it, so that I stuff the HTML with new classes and spend half of the day copying the same styles. Also, repetition makes the code longer, thus less maintainable.

    Sharing experience and practice is great, this is how we make progress, however, CSS specificity is not that scary or hard to grasp and this is the only argument I find reasonable for using Maintanable CSS on the website.

    All I see is big headings with fancy modern words popping up from here and there saying how innovative and revolutionary something is, how it was created solely to benefit the users and brought to life to make the world a better place for us all.

    Yes, this site's animations are cool, the colours are cool, the graphics are nice and sleek, I don't deny that overall the website is visually appealing. For me it was engaging to scroll till the end and see all the fancy movements, and all the pretty pictures, they are impressive but if you asked me what the website is about, I can't say much.

    I'm sorry, but this is an assembly line design for me.

    Every new product or idea with potential to "make the world a better place" has something unique and wrapping its uniqueness in wordings, pictures and layouts shared by half of the www won't make it stand out.

    For every new product we can sit and think how to present it in such way that it gives the user relevant concise information to read not just a bunch of marketing bla blas and engage them in such way that they don't just scroll for the show.

    Yes, this is actually the only thing that's bugging me. Apart from that, great work!

    All of the clean and modern-looking websites leave exactly the same feel. One way to get noticed is to be a bit different, or at least not to follow the trend blindlessly.

    Yes, a big image/illustration taking a lot of space on the screen for no reason might be annoying if other factors are not taken into account (for example, how long it stays on the screen, how often the user sees it and so on) but it also can benefit the overall impression of the product even if not relevant.

    Breaking the rules lead to better results sometimes.

    Not always though. Just the other day I posted a link which later saw in the Stories posted by somebody else hours before me

    Inspiring. Not only for the people who write, but for everyone who has their own way of finding the inner voice.
