I just got to be apart of an awesome project with some of the best web developers I’ve ever gotten the chance to call friends, and one of these guys showed me this little gem!

This is an awesome template that will automatically set up your markup structure, css framework and get you ready for dev in all browsers. The more and more I learn about HTML5, the more and more tools like this speed up the build & overall production. 

Special thanks to Ryan Jarvinen (http://ryanjarvinen.com/) for the hook ups on this awesome tool. Check it out, and look at their resources! The team that built this was thorough and everything is well documented. Happy coding!

Stop what you are doing. Right now. Go to http://layerstyles.org/ and go. to. town. In-browser image editing that kicks out your CSS. 

WTF

Go. Now.

This is a rad little find by my boy Toni a.k.a. @mewithyou posted on twitter and I had to share!

The guide includes binding topcis such as: Saddle stitch, Loop stitch, Stab stitch, Perfect bound, Singer sewn & Case bound!

Here is an except:

We’ve made a guide for you with details about common binding techniques. You can download the PDF, print it out yourself and make into a little booklet. The only cost is a tweet or a Facebook post, that’s it.

It is free, but I would recommend donating if you find it useful! A product this useful put out by a team this generous… Deserves some love!

I’ll be printing mine later today and building it as well!

Here is a little something I designed on my lunch break today. I wanted a better background for my iPhone 4 than a screen shot from the temp website I put up. This is what I came up with. 

Update:

I’ve had quite a few people ask for the download! So here it is. Please feel free to download this and throw it on your iPhone or share it everywhere. All I ask is that you give credit where credit is due. If you do use it, please send me a screen shot (Home Button + Power Button on iPhones/iPods) and send it to me. If you do, I have a present for you. Promise.

About this font family

Museo… it all started with my love for the letter ‘U’. This uppercase letter just came to me as an image in a daydream. The top of both stems bent into semi-slab serifs. From this principle I worked out the rest of the uppercase letters. My first intention was to make it an all-caps display font, but after a while, I changed my mind. I wanted it to be a bit more versatile, so I decided to add lowercase and adjust spacing and kerning to increase legibility.

This OpenType font family comes in five weights, and each weight comes with support for CE languages, even Esperanto. Besides ligatures, contextual alternatives, stylistic alternates, fractions and proportional/tabular figures, Museo has a ‘case’ feature for case-sensitive forms.
