Google posts guidelines for defining favicons

Jamie Leach: Google Search now displays favicons in search results on mobile. Your favicon should be a multiple of 48×48 (Google will re-scale it to 16×16 for use in search results). If a website doesn’t have a favicon or Google deems the favicon inappropriate, a generic globe icon will be displayed instead.

Your favicon should be a visual representation of your website’s brand, in order to help users quickly identify your site when they scan through search results.

Top websites are surprisingly inconsistent in the way they declare icons (via <link> elements in the page’s head). Twitter and Pinterest, two relatively modern progressive web apps, provide icons in two sizes.

<!-- example -->
<link rel="icon" href="/icon-32x32.png">
<link rel="apple-touch-icon" href="/icon-192x192.png">

The Paciello Group releases ARC Toolkit

In honor of Global Accessibility Awareness Day, TPG is releasing our professional-level accessibility testing tool to the public. Learn all about it at https://t.co/ol33pizq2v and download it from the Google Chrome store today. #GAAD

— The Paciello Group (@paciellogroup) May 16, 2019

The Paciello Group: ARC Toolkit, our professional-level accessibility testing tool, is now available as a Chrome DevTools extension. This tool detects issues related to the WCAG 2.1 guidelines. You can run the test on the entire page or just the node selected in the DevTools Elements panel.

Remember, automated accessibility tools are only able to find some accessibility issues, and manual testing is necessary to ensure full accessibility. Lighthouse (via the Audits panel) suggests manual checks after performing an accessibility audit.

  • Jeff Jaffe: W3C and WHATWG have reached an agreement to collaborate on the development of HTML. „W3C shall encourage the community … to contribute directly to the WHATWG HTML and DOM repositories; raising issues, proposing solutions, commenting on proposed solutions, and indicating support or otherwise for proposals.”
  • Paul Calvano: „There is a significant gap in the first- vs. third-party resource age of CSS and web fonts. 95% of first-party fonts are older than one week compared to 50% of third-party fonts … This makes a strong case for self-hosting web fonts!”
  • Rachel Andrew: The CSS subgrid value is a relatively straightforward addition to grid layout. For example, if you have nested grids, and you apply grid-template-rows: subgrid to the child grid, then this grid will use the row tracks of the parent grid instead of creating its own row tracks. That’s all there is to it. (This feature is currently only supported in Firefox Nightly.)
  • GitHub Blog: GitHub can now generate automated security fixes for your dependencies with known security vulnerabilities. On GitHub’s website, check your repository’s Security tab for security alerts. If you open an alert and press the „Create automated security fix” button, GitHub will create an automated pull request that fixes the security vulnerability.
  • Rick Viscomi: HTTP Archive plans to release the first annual Web Almanac in November, a report of the state of the web with interesting insights written by different experts. About 50 volunteers from the web community are currently working on it, and they are looking for more contributors.

Reducing motion with the picture element

Post pobrano z: Reducing motion with the picture element

Here’s a bonafide CSS/HTML trick from Brad Frost and Dave Rupert where they use the <picture> element to switch out a GIF file with an image if the user has reduced motion enabled. This is how Brad goes about implementing that:

<picture>
  <!-- This image will be loaded if the media query is true  -->
  <source srcset="no-motion.jpg" media="(prefers-reduced-motion: reduce)"></source>

  <!--  Otherwise, load this gif -->
  <img srcset="animated.gif" alt="brick wall"/>
</picture>

How nifty is this? It makes me wonder if there are other ways this image-switching technique can be used besides accessibility and responsive images…

Also, it’s worth noting that Eric Bailey wrote about the reduced motion media query a while back where he digs into its history and various approaches to use it.

1. How to Draw the Bodies and Organs

Step 1

Let’s begin by drawing our first set of elements for the research infographic template!

To draw the outline of the male body, copy the half illustrated on the left, and then Reflect it and merge both copies with the Outline function in the Pathfinder panel.

infographic design templates

Step 2

Do the same for the female body!

research infographic template

Step 3

Fill both body outlines with #98AEC5.

infographic template illustrator

Step 4

Draw lungs, using the same Pathfinder function. Fill the organ in with #C7D7E2.

Next, make a copy of the lungs and place them inside a #BF3B35 hexagon icon with an outline of the same color. Color the lungs with #EDEDDD.

Add a line with a small circle on the end of it to serve as a pointer.

infographic design templates

Step 5

Repeat a similar process for the liver, only changing the hexagon’s color to #889CB1.

infographic template illustrator

Step 6

Use #ED7777 for the brain icon.

research infographic template

Step 7

Draw the next set of organs, using the same colors and functions as before.

infographic design templates

Step 8

Draw the next organ, coloring it with #EDEDDD.

infographic template

Step 9

Add the heart. Use #A1A4C2 for the icon.

infographic template illustrator

Step 10

Draw the rest of the organs, using the same colors as we did earlier in the tutorial.

research infographic template

Step 11

Place the organs and the icons as shown below.

2. How to Create the Graphs

Step 1

Draw the axis for the graph, and then add columns using these colors:

  • #BF3835
  • #98AEC5
  • #6F89A4

You can use a Rectangular Grid with 13 Horizontal Dividers for reference.

infographic template

Step 2

Create one more graph with different-colored columns.

infographic design templates

Step 3

Create a stick man out of different shapes, using the Pathfinder functions Minus Front and Unite to make the figure.

Use #98AEC5 for the blue stick man and #BF3B35 for the red one.

infographic design templates

Step 4

Create three more copies of the figure, coloring them with #ED7777, #7B83A1, and #6F89A4.

Make some graphs as seen below, indicating the percentages with the number of the stick men used.

Use the settings below for all of the columns.

research infographic template

Step 11

Expand Appearance of the columns and add the percentages, using the same color.

infographic template illustrator

Step 12

Add one more 3D bar graph, this time using Effect > 3D > Revolve and these colors:

  • #DD1E20
  • #FF7D7D
  • #C5E6FF
  • #CCD3FF
infographic design templates

Step 13

Expand Appearance of the graphs and arrange them in a slanted line.

infographic template illustrator

Step 14

Color them with #ED7777, #A1A4C2, #C23F40, and #6F89A4.

infographic template

3. How to Draw the Circular Graph

Step 1

Cut out the middle of a circle with the Minus Front function in Pathfinder.

infographic design templates

Step 2

Add a Polar Grid with 20 Radial Dividers and overlay it on top of the graph.

infographic template illustrator

Step 3

Use the dividers as references to measure out the percentages seen below, and then use the Divide function to „cut up” the circular graph.

Use these colors:

  • #98AEC5
  • #7B83A1
  • #ED7777
  • #C03F40
infographic design templates

Step 4

Draw the background with Gradient Mesh.

Begin with a #F5F2E6 rectangle, and then, with the Mesh Tool (U), create a mesh grid as pictured below.

Color the middle node with #FFFFFF, and then add two nodes colored with #F6F4EB above and below it.

Change the edges to #EEEAD9.

infographic template

Step 5

2. How to Create the Graphs

Step 1

Draw the axis for the graph, and then add columns using these colors:

  • #BF3835
  • #98AEC5
  • #6F89A4

You can use a Rectangular Grid with 13 Horizontal Dividers for reference.

Step 3

Create a stick man out of different shapes, using the Pathfinder functions Minus Front and Unite to make the figure.

Use #98AEC5 for the blue stick man and #BF3B35 for the red one.

infographic design templates

Step 4

Create three more copies of the figure, coloring them with #ED7777, #7B83A1, and #6F89A4.

Make some graphs as seen below, indicating the percentages with the number of the stick men used.

3. How to Draw the Circular Graph

Step 1

Cut out the middle of a circle with the Minus Front function in Pathfinder.

infographic design templates

Step 2

Add a Polar Grid with 20 Radial Dividers and overlay it on top of the graph.

infographic template illustrator

Step 3

Use the dividers as references to measure out the percentages seen below, and then use the Divide function to „cut up” the circular graph.

Use these colors:

  • #98AEC5
  • #7B83A1
  • #ED7777
  • #C03F40
infographic design templates

Step 4

Draw the background with Gradient Mesh.

Begin with a #F5F2E6 rectangle, and then, with the Mesh Tool (U), create a mesh grid as pictured below.

Color the middle node with #FFFFFF, and then add two nodes colored with #F6F4EB above and below it.

Change the edges to #EEEAD9.
