TIDYcars did it unTIDY way

No… No… No… or should I grin a bit and say HaaH?

Tidycars were not supposed to do this again. They have again uploaded the same copied website design which they had stolen from our website Xhtml.Pixelcrayons.com. We had discussed it in our previous blog. Earlier we were assuming that some web designer has crooked them. As for the past few months their website was also down which made us think that they might be coming up with some new design. But their recent action has proved all our assumptions wrong.Read More »TIDYcars did it unTIDY way

XHTML Compliance Website for Visually Disabled

The First Change By Obama

Charity Change begins at home’. I see it the most suitable proverb for the moment as Obama’s administration has started to work on their slogan. This is one of the first changes that the President of United States has made after taking over the Bush government.

It seems like the importance of a website in reaching out to the millions of people and establishing a brand image has been acknowledged by the president of the United States too. This can be a reason among others, if there are any, that why Barrack Obama, as the 44th president of USA, has decided to change his website.Read More »The First Change By Obama

Worst Designs Are Big Help

Gone are the days when people used to stress more on the theoretical knowledge of any subject. These days, practical explanations and experiments are taking the ground. The rational difference between the two is the experience. In the former one, one deals with the situations in the real time rather than just listening to the lectures or mugging up the key notes, as this is the case in the latter one.

I was just thinking that how many articles/ blogs or tutorials we all have written about making a good web design but still there are people who are still overlooking the basic things. If a person of some other trade also reads a dozen of these articles/blogs will get the basic knowledge about, ‘How to make a web design usable and good to look at’. A learning web designer can also write about the basic needs that should be included in making a web design user friendly.Read More »Worst Designs Are Big Help

Web designers and their creativity have evolved a long mile now. Tracking down the past we see that many new changes and discoveries have been made in the world of designing. We see many designers experimenting with colors, fonts, backgrounds, images and hence coming up with new presentational skills of their design. Today while designing any design the designers not only think about making it jazzy and flashy but they also work on how to initiate talking with their visitors via their creative work.

Now new designs with better objectives are being formulated to involve viewers in discussions and get their suggestions. So far many articles have been written on tips n tricks of web design. The experimentation in every field is becoming so common that many designers are trying marketing techniques like A.I.D.A i.e., attract/attention, interest, desire and action.Read More »Design to Market

Whoops!!! Some one did it again

How can somebody do this? Stealing a whole website design! It’s not only about stealing a web site but a lot more than that. It is offending somebody’s idea, killing his creative instinct and invading into his imaginary world.

And this offensive act has been done again with XHTML.PixelCrayons.com website design. When we found that the web design of XHTML.PixelCrayons.com was completely stolen by tidycars.net. We were upset but not tensed (as it is not our first time to deal with these kind of crooks) because of the whole process of mailing and wasting our resources on it.Read More »Whoops!!!

Designing Banners …A Thought Process

Is it a Child’s play or Prodigy? Or something else…

A mere look is not sufficient to make someone fall for you, and make them do exactly what you want them to. Can’t be a child’s play, so what it is then? A Prodigy! No.
In Designing Banners for advertisements there is nothing like child’s play or prodigy. Everything which is done is done after a well processed research. Designing banner for advertisement is a big challenge in itself because unlike website designing, it has limited space. Within this space and limited text one has to communicate to its audience and convince them to click the banner, at least, if not buy the product.Read More »Designing Banners …A Thought Process
