Business cards used to be nothing more than plain and simple (and quite frankly, boring) pieces of card with a few contact details on. That was before creatives got involved, though, and completely changed the game. People started to realise the fantastic branding potential behind these little cards. We’ve already seen a number of beautiful examples of embossed business cards, and even some so creative that they change the shape and material of the traditional business card entirely. Well, the latter has proved to be incredibly popular in recent years, and we’ve found even more examples of brands using business cards to mirror their personalities! Here are 50 for your inspiration:
IconDock has been a labour of love for me: thousands of people have purchased and used my icons in all sorts of projects. After so many years of the classic IconDock design, I decided to update the look and feel to reflect the current trends in web design that I follow, and give it a shiny new coat of paint. In addition, several icon sets have been converted into icon fonts, intended for designing and developing for retina. You can now purchase all 12 unique icon font sets from IconDock for the one time flat fee of $29!
Are you looking for an alternative for Font Awesome? I have a good news for you! Themify has just released a new icon font called Themify Icons — a complete icon set consisting of 320+ pixel-perfect icons inspired by the iOS7 design. It is 100% free, with the ability to use and distribute for any purpose, whether personal, commercial, or anything in between. It is a must have tool for designing web templates and apps.
As promised in my previous post, I will be sharing some of the scripts used on the Themify redesign. Today I'm going to share the animating background color script as seen on the site. It is a simple jQuery script that animates a series of background colors in a loop. It runs smoothly on desktop, tablet, and even mobile devices.
Themify has come a long way since its launch 3 years ago, and I thought it was finally time to redesign the Themify website. The goal of Themify is to make it easy for anyone to build a beautiful, responsive website using WordPress and Themify themes. This means that we need to stay ahead of web design trends, and I thought that the redesign should reflect our desire to incorporate the latest and greatest practices found in the design world right into our website. This post will take you behind the scenes around our planning and decision making process, as well as some of the work that didn't make the final cut for the Themify website.
WordPress is one of the most ubiquitous content management systems in the world. Even better, it's open source! However, as an open source piece of software, it can be vulnerable to malicious individuals digging through code and finding vulnerabilities in the code, which they attempt to exploit. As such, WordPress sites have been prone to security breaches and being hacked, and having your WordPress site hacked can be damaging to your reputation and your business. At Themify, we often hear about WordPress security issues from members, thus it inspired us to share this article.
