Look outside for inspiration, site map css, animate a curtain using jQuery, better password inputs and Pixel Perfect.
The From the Couch guys encourage a very simple idea to go outside to gain inspiration. I know it works for me because some of my best ideas come from when I go out for a walk. Wether it’s to or from work, during your lunch break or even just at the weekend, go outside and be inspired.
Site maps tend not to get much attention when it comes to design so this is a very simple way to make a drab site map look good and interesting.
A very creative use of jQuery simulating a theatre style curtain opening and closing. Certainly a tutorial that will make you smile.
Ever since Jakob Nielsen’s controversial comments about not masking web passwords, I immediately thought of the way the iPhone handled passwords and up pops Chris Coyier, right on cue!
This is one for all you perfectionist. Pixel Perfect is a Firefox plugin (requires Firebug) that allows you to overlay a design over the top of a site development.
