Just a while ago I wrote about a cool project I finished for a small start up company called Arriva
. I shared the logo design process
back then. Today I’ll talk about the design of the web site and I’ll share how I get started with my coding, how I prepare the different assets, which tools I use, and how I organise my files, my CSS (or better put SCSS) in particular.
I had this little book by Dan Cederholm
laying around for quite some time. I’ve bought it as a reference for when I would try to get my head around Sass
. Now I finally managed to write the review. Let’s get right into it.
One of the projects I've also
been working on in the past couple of months, is the redesign of a web site for one of our longterm clients, Exonet
, a Dutch Internet provider. Today I want to share my design process of this project, which involved my favourite mix: illustration work, combined with web site design & layout, and front-end coding.

is a fabulous book aimed to web designers who want to learn about the creative opportunities offered by CSS3
, and who want to use it today.

This book, Handcrafted CSS: More Bulletproof Web Design
, is all about innovative and effective CSS techniques to improve the user’s experience using a transitional approach we call progressive enrichment
. Dan’s book explores CSS3
techniques that work in today’s browsers. This book’s timing is just perfect, as I too believe that it is now time to start experimenting with it…
