Ahoy hoy! Welcome to Volume 26 of Found Fridays – the best design finds of the week. This week we have some beautiful movie-inspired posters, a great post on how to customize the WordPress admin panel (without plugins), an easy way to keep track of all the new stuff Google is putting out, a great little online printing price checker, and a super lightweight and aesthetically sound jQuery slider. Read on yo!
A series of posters inspired by movies and their respective great quotes. I was sold as soon as I saw the Big Lebowski. Now I want a White Russian.
WordPress is a killer CMS, and we’ve explored how to make WordPress an even better CMS on this here blog. This article over on Six Revisions takes it to a whole other level though: 1) customize the back end, 2) impress your clients, 3) ???, 4) PROFIT. For real though, have a read if you use WordPress as a CMS.
Google makes and releases more new products than…. I don’t know, some sort of New Product… Assembly Line… Store. Whatever. Anyway, Google New is a simple way to keep up to date with what Google’s creative team is doing. I suggest checking it out, because while they release some stinkers like Google Wave, the majority of Google’s products are free, helpful, and worth looking at.
There’s a lot of printing options out there for those of us who use online printing on occasion; check out this “machine” (aka website) that price checks for you (via swiss-miss).
I know, I know, another jQuery slider. But THIS one is different. By different, I mean really, really similar, but simple to implement, lightweight, and with some cool features.
That’s it! See you next week.
