Adobe MUSE

B-Log No Comments


MUSE—Another interesting and designer centric project/product from Adobe. I like the apparent ease of use and UI similarities with other other Adobe apps like InDesign. I’m not a huge fan of having to have your site hosted by Adobe.

“Design and publish HTML websites without writing code. Create websites as easily as you create layouts for print. You can design and publish original HTML pages to the latest web standards without writing code. Now in beta, Muse makes it a snap to produce unique, professional websites.” via Adobe

Lost World Fair’s

B-Log No Comments

A colleague turned me onto Lost World Fair’s (thanks Emir), aside from the stunning illustrations and typography the site takes advantage of HTML 5, CSS3 and WOFF. If you look behind the curtain you’ll notice that all the typography uses web fonts vs. images which makes the site all the more impressive. Now that IE9 is on board the web appears to be full steam ahead!

Lost World Fair’s—Internet Explorer 9 now supports WOFF, and the Friends of Mighty have joined forces to explore typographic possibilities on the web.
