Bonjour & welcome to Found Friday Vol 39. This week we have a great collection of useful/fun finds: a jQuery plugin that resizes text, 10 great web conferences to attend this year, a new website solely for geek gifts, a collection of useful web-based tools for designers, and a joystick that attaches to your iPad. Read on!
BigText makes text big. Specifically, it’s a jQuery plugin that “takes a single element and sizes the text inside of its child divs to fit the width of the parent element. Gives the text that lovely vertical alignment.” I need to use this.
Learning online is great, but there is something to be said for immersing yourself in a well-run conference. You meet and learn from like-minded graphic designer, web designers, web developers and more, and come back reinvigorated. Check these 10 out.
Geeks + gifts = Geefts. Cool idea – I bet you find something you want.
At this point, I’m almost getting overwhelmed with the amount of “do one thing, do it well” websites out there, but so many are so useful! Here’s 8 more for you. My bookmarks folder is overflowing!
Ingenious design solution here – take an aluminum joystick, stick it on your iPad, and relive your ’80’s arcade gaming glory.
See you next week!
