Companies go for the integrated marketing nowadays: all channels are exploited, and the virtual medium has much to offer. Advertising has reached new shores and the targeted clients are more and more skeptical about products. What other environment, if not the exponentially-developing world wide web, is more likely to be more and more competitive as days go by?
The design, the originality, the well-crafted ensemble, the art inspired, are, as this blog sure points out, the prerogative for good competitive sites. Nothing is left out in a world where possibilities are only limited by imagination.

The web is continuously growing. New and innovative websites are being created every day, pushing the boundaries of HTML in every trend. HTML 5 introduces and enhances a wide range of features including form controls, APIs, multimedia, structure, and semantics. Work on HTML 5.
As HTML5 is now being implemented by webmasters all around the web I thought it only appropriate to cover some of the new elements and page structure basics here at Base webmaster. Particularly as many of the websites demonstrating the HTML5 structure appear to have misunderstood how the new structural elements are used.
Effectively the basic structure of a HTML5 document has not changed. Each comprises of a head section containing unseen details and links and a body section where the visible elements of the document reside.
The new HTML5 tags describe the types of content that they contain, and they help divide the document into logical sections. It’s still up to you to decide when and where to use the new tags within a document, similar to an author writing a book. While two authors writing the same book may choose different ways of dividing the book into chapters, the act of using chapters still provides a steady method of dividing the book into sections. Similarly, while two authors of a given web page may choose different structures, the new HTML5 structural tags provide new conventions that web page developers can use that the old
div tags do not provide.
HTML 5 introduces a whole set of new elements that make it much easier to structure pages. Most HTML 4 pages include a variety of common structures, such as headers, footers and columns and today, it is fairly common to mark them up using div elements, giving each a descriptive id or class.
There are some amazing new font foundries on the design scene who are doing some brilliant work and making it available to designers and developers everywhere for next to nothing. The release of a new font or font family sees the release of a free weight, a trending practice that garners no complaints from anyone. As designers and purveyors of art and all things creative, we enjoy the art of another responsibly and ration our funds for highly desirable designs and resources. I have to admit, there are many stunning fonts out there and most are not cheap. So, it is indeed an exuberant feeling when you discover quality fonts for downloads that are absolutely, stark raving free.
A while ago I did an article and roundup of Free Logo Fonts and today I am following up on that with a big list of 45 brilliant and gorgeous fonts for all you logo designers and web designers out there. I have tried out a couple of these in my logo projects and I have a special affinity for Lobster by Pablo Impallari and League Gothic. There is a good mix for modern, minimalistic, retro, vintage and traditional logos and layouts. Experimenting and altering them to suit your designs will create any look and feel you are after. The fonts below are all free, some require signing up to get to the download which is a very small price to pay for these little typographic gems. As always, enjoy responsibly!
In this article we’ll have a look at some websites that are a bit different to what we usually see. Web design sure has come a long way in recent years, and we can see all kinds of creative and unique websites popping up.
This collection is comprised of websites offering many different services/merchandise. They’re colorful, funny, artistic and more. What they all have in common is the fact that they do stand out a bit – at least they did to us.
This industry moves fast — really fast! If you’re not careful, you’ll be left in its dust. So, if you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed with the coming changes/updates in HTML5, use this as a primer of the things you must know.
1. New Doctype
Still using that pesky, impossible-to-memorize XHTML doctype?
view plaincopy to clipboardprint?
- DOCTYPE html PUBLIC ”-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN”
DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
If so, why? Switch to the new HTML5 doctype. You’ll live longer — as Douglas Quaid might say.
In fact, did you know that it truthfully isn’t even really necessary for HTML5? However, it’s used for current, and older browsers that require a specified
doctype. Browsers that do not understand this doctype will simply render the contained markup in standards mode. So, without worry, feel free to throw caution to the wind, and embrace the new HTML5 doctype.
