Creative and Development Inspiration 6

This weeks list is more design focused, with a story telling script thrown in for good measure. As most design/dev sites are shouting about Cyber Monday deals, I wanted to keep this on the same track as we started. I hope you enjoy.

 

Designercize

Needing to flex your design muscles? A little down time in the studio? Designercize has you covered. It randomly generates a concept that needs a design for. Brilliant for wireframing / whiteboard design practice.

Scrollama

Its been a while since I have come across a script that really gets me thinking about its potential. Scrollama is a lightweight JS libary that helps with storytelling.

Obstructed Text

Some websites look great, even if they defy conventional wisdom or tenets of design theory. A new design trend is showcasing that very idea with elements that cover or obstruct some of the text in the design.

Design needs Three Levels of Type Heirarchy

Another one from Design Shack, they really impressed me last week. This article discusses how design needs three levels of typography. It seems very common-sensual, but its interesting to see it written in such a concise way.

YELLOW!

Web Design Dev have brought together 20 examples of yellow being used in design. A great article to click through, with no need to read anything. A nice ender to this weeks run down.
