If you don’t even know where to start, here are a few little projects that you can complete in a few hours.

Web Pages That Suck – learn good web design by looking at bad web design

I’ve taken a long sabbatical from the site because of an overdose of dealing with websites and people suffering from Dunning-Kruger Syndrome. Seriously, 20 years of looking at badly designed websites takes its toll, but like John Wick, I’m back. Bad websites: Prepare to get shot in the face a la John Wick. Click picture for my feelings on the matter.

Like John Wick, I'm back.

Web Pages That Suck Presents The 20 Worst Websites of 2014

some websites are unbelievably bad

This year there’s less emphasis on using Over-The-Top websites—mostly because I’ve separated them into their own document The 12 Worst Over-The-Top Websites of 2014—and started discussing mobile mistakes along with more serious design flaws. This shouldn’t be a surprise as the world is seeing a quantifiable move from the desktop to mobile.

Design Thinking as a Strategy for Innovation

By Linda Naiman

Design-led companies such as Apple, Pepsi, Procter & Gamble and SAP have outperformed the S&P 500 by an extraordinary 211%. This article highlights the distinctions between design and design thinking and how the latter, if executed properly and strategically, can impact business outcomes and result in real competitive advantages. 

DMI Design Value Index

When design principles are applied to strategy and innovation, the success rate for innovation dramatically improves. Design-led companies such as Apple, Pepsi, IBM, Nike, Procter & Gamble, and SAP have outperformed the S&P 500 over a 10-year period by an extraordinary 211% according to the 2015 Design Value Index created by the Design Management Institute and Motiv Strategies.1

Great design has that “wow” factor that makes products more desirable and services more appealing to users.

Designing is more than creating products and services; it can be applied to systems, procedures, protocols, and customer experiences.

Responsive Website Design Tester | Media Genesis

ABOUT

MEDIA GENESIS

Responsive Design Checker was initially created in 2012 as an exercise for Media Genesis developers to see if they could create a tool that could be used to test websites for mobile design. Essentially, developers wanted to see how well certain websites could adapt when viewed on mobile device (like a phone) rather than just on a computer desktop.

As it turned out, it was a smash hit! But not necessarily with developers. Responsive Design Checker was appreciated more by non-development web users as it was able to determine if a website would be responsive while in mobile format.

Later updates to the system were made in 2015 in order to include a variety of preset screen sizes such as the 27-inch Dell Monitor U2711, 17-inch Workstation, 15-inch Macbook Pro, 11-inch Macbook Air, and the portrait and landscape modes of Apple’s iPad and iPhone, and the Nexus7.
