Creative and Development Inspiration 7

This week I have brought together 6 links that cover design, code and process. Some great pieces of inspiration as well as some hopefully useful snippets to enhance your work.

 

Website Design Example

A brief look at the new website for Heydays from Oslo. Its nice. Its simple. I like it. Also, its pretty on mobile (because responsive). I like posts like this, great for inspiration.

Minify PNGs with UPNG

According to this site, they are significatly better than TinyPNG. I bring you UPNG. Either way, here are links for two brilliant sites to minify your images.

Animate Plus

This JavaScript animation libary is centered around performance and flexibility. Built to work with mobile, and only 2KB when minified and gzipped. From the examples it seems like a winner!

Designers should move slowly

A great article on why design should be thoughtly thought-out, and focused on user-first. It links through to some other very interesting articles as well!

One for the Photoshoppers

This new Photoshop CC tool lets users detect objects with one click. No more lasso tool! (Although I’m dubious it will work every time)

Design Better: The Design System Handbook

A comprehensive design system template to reduce design debt and accelerate the design process. It walks through each stage of the system and provides some brilliant resources. A great finisher for this weeks roundup!
