Welcome designers & readers alike to Found Friday Vol 45. This week, we have a great article on link-building; a good read on the difference between mediocre & great design; the new A Book Apart book for web designers; a fun jQuery plugin that racily gets you to choose stronger passwords; and a great post for anyone undertaking an icon design project. Read on!
This is an article that should be read & understood by both web designers and their clients. Clients will measure the success of the site you built for them by a few factors; one big one is search engine optimization. Proper link-building can help SEO rankings immensely; read up.
A must-read for designers of any ilk. Plain and simple. Want to be great? Details!
I’ve just picked up the first two A Book Apart books, and they’re outstanding. I’m assuming this one will be as well.
As you enter a stronger password, the beautiful 8-bit model (“Sally”) tastefully removes her clothes. I told you: RACY.
*Edit: it appears something is wonky over there; the link now takes you to a CRM login screen. Hopefully it’ll be back up soon.
We just completed a custom icon project for a client of ours; the tips and references in this article will be useful if you have any similar projects coming down the pipe. Have a read!
See you next week!
