When web designer creates pages, sometimes they want to set an element where they need to bend or wrap texts inside a circle (e.g. for the site’s logo or title). Photoshop and some image editing software is often the go-to software for creating these images.
On the other hand, bending and setting text on a circle without using Photoshop gives flexibility to the design and value to the SEO since search engines can’t read texts in images.
This can be an easy task using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator but setting text on web type using HTML and CSS might be a challenge. Thanks to the power of CSS3 and jQuery, this can be done.Read More
Now that we’re done talking about SASS let’s now talk about learning LESS. If you haven’t seen my SASS tutorial, I recommend you check it here. In our previous tutorial, we listed down the drawbacks of CSS and how pre-processed methods can improve your workflow. We also talked about how to implement SASS using variables, nested, mixins, functions and so on. So we’re ready to take another learning curve with another pre-process method which is LESS.
LESS in a Nutshell
LESS is a dynamic style sheet language that extends CSS and, just like SASS, it has dynamic behavior such as variables, mixins, operations and functions.
It allows you to write CSS in a simpler way by just using and combining mixins, functions, and so on. LESS also increases readability and organization of CSS using imports, nested rules and comments with .less extension.Read More
Writing a lot of CSS can be overwhelming that is why learning SASS and LESS can make any web developer and designer’s life much easier. For a beginner, you might find it fine but as time goes by and your CSS skills are improving. You begin to wonder if there is a way so that you don’t need to repeat a lot of CSS codes in your style sheet. The good news is, there is one! Thanks to the CSS pre – processor, it’s now possible to write concise CSS codes without repeating each of them again and again. It is even formatted nicely. You can perform computations and do dynamic styling using these pre-processing methods. There are two pre-processing methods that I will tackle: SASS and LESS. For this tutorial I will talk about SASS first and then on a separate tutorial, I’ll talk about LESS.Read More

It’s a pretty cool thing to do because you get to remember all the awesome things 2013 has given you. You look back at how bad you were design-wise last year and how well you’ve improved. With this, you get to assess yourself how much more you could exert and, in turn, how much more money you could earn. Retrospection also tells you what more could you learn. Seeing what you’re weak at will also allow you to see where you could trained. That is why self-correction and openness to new things is a great habit for a designer.Read More
