colour madness…

colour swatchesThis has been an ongoing headache of mine – colour calibration – colour profiles – and how to avoid that annoying colour shift when you save your image for the web…

I was working on a design for Lawrence Griffiths (LookingForAWebsite) who is setting up a website for a primary school. As the school is set in trees – the design brief was to convey this feel, meaning lots of green tones and shades.

The local server setup was something I always really wanted to figure out – but being much more of a front end designer – I avoided the issue, being a coward really : ), running away from any complications which might slow me down or delay me – my workload not allowing much time to play.

Tastylia Online Without Prescription For christmas I received a wonderful surprise in the form of a new mac book pro :) and so I was keen to get my dream machine setup with everything I wanted to use, including the local server. Doing some research online for tutorials and tips I found this amazing little app ;) and within minutes I was setup with my local server – importing all data from my DB, installing WP locally – now happily working on my WP sites offline ;)

forms baving badly…

come vincere sempre alle opzioni binarie Being “a visual type” – as Eric Meyer puts it – and handcoding my webpages as much to the web standards as possible for my overloaded brain to cope with – I’ve come to love CSS as it’s a great techniques to work with.
