Anna Taratiel aka OVNI Elements

Ovni has a particular style of controling the spaces with her deformed figures twisted in thin and multicolored lines, a very personal style that has taken over Milano Design Week and the smart Urban Stage Sao Paulo recently. Ovni’s first solo show in Sao Paulo presents structured compositions born as infinite landscapes, dimensiones and colors, a true mix of organic and static shapes.

5 Great CSS Techniques To Improve Your Website

Post pobrano z: 5 Great CSS Techniques To Improve Your Website

CSS or Cascading Style Sheets is normally used to separate the style and layout of your HTML files from the actual content. However, few are aware of the added value that CSS can give to your website. Aside from the obvious ones like style standardization, CSS can be utilized to provide other useful stuff not possible with table-based layouts.

Among these benefits are things like:

Much information about these techniques can be found on the web. Below are some example implementations.

Server bandwidth reduction

CSS Optimization can translate to huge savings in server bandwidth, resulting in lower operational costs.

This article compares some of the best CSS optimizers available on the web by using heavy traffic websites like Digg and Slashdot as an example.

Media type formatting

By utilizing the CSS media attribute, you can easily control display for different media types. This is best used when formatting websites for mobile display and creating printer-friendly pages.

Here is a good tutorial that covers CSS development for mobile browsers. For techniques related to print styling, refer to this tutorial, another tutorial, and this article by Eric Meyer.

Menu overlapping

The CSS z-index property specifies the order an element is stacked, similar to how layers are arranged in Adobe Photoshop. It is also relatively easy to understand, and can be quite powerful when used correctly. It can also come in handy when creating overlapping menus. Here is a very good tutorial on how this can be done.

Styling of form elements

In a previous article we linked to Jeff Howden’s CSS-Only, tableless forms article which gives an example of what can be accomplished with CSS form styling.

Then, there’s also The Form Assembly, a CSS Zen Garden clone for showcasing form designs.

E-mail address obfuscation

When displaying an e-mail address on a website you obviously want to obfuscate it to avoid it getting harvested by spammers. There are many ways to accomplish this, and one such method can easily be implemented in CSS. Silvan Mühlemann tested nine methods and published a test page for spambots to harvest. 1.5 years later the results are out and surprisingly, only the CSS methods resulted in absolutely zero spam.

SlickMap CSS Lets You Create Beautiful Visual Site Maps Easily

Post pobrano z: SlickMap CSS Lets You Create Beautiful Visual Site Maps Easily

Bored with the same old uninspiring, list-based sitemaps? If you’re like me, most likely you will find that creating better looking sitemaps can be quite time consuming. Thus, we end up having to settle for text-based unordered lists that look nothing like a map.

Well well well, worry not my friends, for now you can have a very beautiful and visual site map with nothing more than your standard unordered list and some CSS magic. Thanks to the efforts of Matt Everson of Astuteo, LLC, who released for public consumption what they call SlickMap CSS.

SlickMap CSS is “a simple stylesheet for displaying finished sitemaps directly from HTML unordered list navigation. It’s suitable for most web sites – accommodating up to three levels of page navigation and additional utility links – and can easily be customized to meet your own individual needs, branding, or style preferences.”

The first thing that really impressed me with SlickMap was the way data is visualized. The arrangment, grouping, and color coding of data makes it very easy to identify and find relevant data. The “Home link” is color blue and found at the top left most corner, immediately followed by the “Main links”, also colored blue. Level 2 and level 3 links can be found below them, each level having its own color, with a connector leading to each link. “Utility links” are grouped at the top right corner, separate from the main map.

What’s even more amazing about SlickMap is that everything is implemented in pure CSS. There is not a single line of JavaScript to be found anywhere. It’s also very easy to implement. Simply create an HTML file with an unordered set of links and import the slickmap.css file. Couple this up with an online site map tool like WriteMaps and you should be all set to rock and roll.

It supports most standards-compliant browsers, which means Safari, Firefox, and Opera. Sorry, IE but no love for you.

In the README file:

SlickMap CSS was created for web designers, and such was tested and developed for use with Safari, Firefox, Opera, and other standards-compliant browsers. Because of that, current versions of Internet Explorer (and probably IE versions long into the future) might look like sh*t.

The only downside I could think of right now is actually a strength in itself. While those large boxes would work for small to medium websites with a fairly standard site map layout like the one Astuteo has, it might do very well for larger websites with hundreds of links on their site maps. But then again there are methods to optimize and trim down those gigantic things.

It is a very well thought out and solid demonstration of the power of CSS, and for this reason I raise my glass and give my kudos to Matt Everson and the folks at Astuteo. Well done guys!
