Improvements on Google Web Fonts


Improvements on Google Web Fonts

Remember the days when designing for the web your choice of fonts was limited to the standard system fonts, (Arial, Helvetica, Verdana, Times, etc…). Well no more! With the new and improved Google Web Font directory there are now hundreds of fonts to choose from to customize the design of any website.

A Legend Has Passed – Steve Jobs

On October 5, 2011 the visionary Apple CEO Steve Jobs lost his eight year battle with cancer. He was many things to many people, but most of all he was a step ahead of technology. His vision and life’s work has influenced me since 1990, when I first started using Apple’s Macintosh. I knew it was something special those many years ago. Not only did he usher in the era of personal computers in the mid 70s, he also led the transformation in the way music, and mobile communications are used throughout the world. Jobs also led the advancement in computer animated movies with the creation Pixar Studio.

I know HTML and CSS and some basic JavaScript, but I am looking forward to learning more to expand my creative knowledge. HTML5 is the longest HTML specification ever written. It is also the most powerful, and in some ways, the most confusing. What do accessible, content-focused standards-based web designers and front-end developers need to know? And how can we harness the power of HTML5 in today’s browsers?
