After a nice short week, and 2 days of eating and football, time to share my links for the week. This collection is only until Wednesday, but I still found a bunch of interesting things.
- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Typography
I need to go back and watch this movie again after seeing all the great typography that is used. Someone definitely put a lot of time and effort into choosing the typography for the movie.
- How Many HTML Elements Can You Name in 5 Minutes?
Ready, set, GO! I got 51. How many did you get? I got basically all of the non-depreciated elements, except for a few. The ones I missed were like
frameand things like that.
- How Many CSS Properties Can You Name in 7 Minutes?
I got 67. There were some that I was smacking myself for not getting, but then there are a bunch that aren’t really supported.
- Apple Gets Creative With Mac Ads
Can Apple do anything wrong right now? This ad is genius.
- Scientific Web Design: 23 Actionable Lessons from Eye-Tracking Studies
A lot of this stuff is things most people probably know, but there is a lot of interesting stuff here.
- Interface Research (Survey)
Take this quick 10 question survey from a class at the Art Institute of Atlanta. The results are about what I figured, except for 1 or 2.
- Does advanced search sound too advanced?
Yeah, I think “Advanced Search” is not a good term. I like what Roger suggests: “Refined” and “Enhanced”.
- Understanding Web Design
The Godfather speaks. A great article from Jeffrey Zeldman about how you can’t really design for the web if you don’t understand it.
- How to Size Text in CSS
This was a great issue of A List Apart this week. This article shows different tests of sizing typography. I think the important thing in this article is that Richard is testing to see his vertical grid grow when users resize their text.
