  • Combining Graphical And Voice Interfaces For A Better User Experience
    by David Pasztor on October 19, 2017 at 12:27 pm

        With​ ​the​ ​appearance​ ​of​ ​voice​ ​user​ ​interfaces,​ ​AI​ ​and​ ​chatbots,​ ​what is​ ​the​ ​future​ ​of​ ​graphical​ ​user​ ​interfaces (GUIs)?​ ​Don’t​ ​worry: Despite​ ​some dark​ ​predictions​,​ ​GUIs​ ​will​ ​stay​ ​around​ ​for​ ​many​ ​years​ ​to​ ​come. Let​ ​me​ ​share​ ​my​ ​personal, humble predictions​ ​and​ ​introduce​ ​multi-modal​ ​interfaces as​ ​a​ ​more​ ​human​ ​way​ ​of​ ​communication​ ​between​ ​user​ ​and​ machine. The​ ​old​ ​wisdom​ ​that​ ​a​ ​picture​ ​is​ ​worth​ ​a​ ​thousand​ ​words​ ​​is​ ​still​ ​true​ ​today.​ ​Our​ ​brain​ ​is​ ​an incredible​ ​image​-​processing​ ​machine.​ ​We​ ​can​ ​understand​ ​complex​ ​information​ ​faster​ ​when we​ ​see​ ​it​ ​visually.​ ​According​ ​to​ ​studies,​ ​even​ ​when​ ​we​ ​talk​ ​with​ ​someone​ ​else,​ n​​onverbal communication​​ ​represents​ ​two third​s ​of​ ​the​ ​conversation.​ ​According​ ​to​ ​​other​ ​studies​​, ​we​ absorb most​ ​information​ ​from​ ​our​ ​sight​ ​(83%​ ​sight,​ ​11%​ ​hearing,​ ​3%​ ​smell,​ ​2%​ ​touch​ ​and​ ​1% taste).​ ​In​ ​short,​ ​our​ ​eyes​ ​are​ our ​primary​ ​sensors​.The post Combining Graphical And Voice Interfaces For A Better User Experience appeared first on Smashing Magazine.

  • Confessions Of An Impostor
    by Denys Mishunov on October 18, 2017 at 12:05 pm

        Five years ago, when, for the first time ever, I was invited to speak at one of the best front-end conferences in Europe, I had quite a mixture of feelings. Obviously, I was incredibly proud and happy: I had never had a chance to do this before for a diverse audience of people with different skillsets. But the other feelings I had were quite destructive. I sincerely could not understand how I could be interesting to anyone: Even though I had been working in front-end for many years by then, I was very silent in the community. I hadn’t contributed to popular frameworks or libraries. I was just average. So, the feeling of a mistake having been made, that I did not deserve to be at that conference, was very strong, and I could not believe that I would indeed be speaking until I had bought my plane ticket.The post Confessions Of An Impostor appeared first on Smashing Magazine.

  • Naming Things In CSS Grid Layout
    by Rachel Andrew on October 17, 2017 at 12:28 pm

        When first learning how to use Grid Layout, you might begin by addressing positions on the grid by their line number. This requires that you keep track of where various lines are on the grid, and also be aware of the fact the line numbers reverse if your site is displayed for a right-to-left language. Built on top of this system of lines, however, are methods that enable the naming of lines and even grid areas. Using these methods enables easier placement of items by name rather than number, but also brings additional possibilities when creating systems for layout. In this article, I’ll take an in-depth look at the various ways to name lines and areas in CSS Grid Layout, and some of the interesting possibilities this creates.The post Naming Things In CSS Grid Layout appeared first on Smashing Magazine.

  • Monthly Web Development Update 10/2017: CSS Grid, CAA Pitfalls, And Image Optimization
    by Anselm Hannemann on October 13, 2017 at 9:56 am

        Editor’s Note: Welcome to this month’s web development update. Anselm has summarized the most important happenings in the web community that have taken place over the past few weeks in one handy list for you. Enjoy! As web developers, we’re working in a very diverse environment: We have countless options to specialize in, but it’s impossible to keep up with everything. This week I read an article from a developer who realized that even though he has been building stuff for the web for over seven years, sometimes he just doesn’t understand what’s going on: “I’m slamming my keyboard in frustration as another mysterious error appears in my build script,” he writes.The post Monthly Web Development Update 10/2017: CSS Grid, CAA Pitfalls, And Image Optimization appeared first on Smashing Magazine.

  • Don’t Let Your Brain Deceive You: Avoiding Bias In Your UX Feedback
    by Hunter Jensen on October 12, 2017 at 12:34 pm

        You know that user feedback is crucial — after all, your users will decide whether your app succeeds or not — but how do you know whether users are being fair and objective in their feedback? We can tell you: They won’t be. All of your users will be giving you biased feedback. They can’t help it.The post Don’t Let Your Brain Deceive You: Avoiding Bias In Your UX Feedback appeared first on Smashing Magazine. […]

  • Implementing A Service Worker For Single-Page App WordPress Sites
    by Leonardo Losoviz on October 11, 2017 at 1:47 pm

        With so many JavaScript frameworks around, single-page application (SPA) websites seem to be all the rage nowadays. However, an SPA architecture has the drawback of having a slower first-page load than a server-based application, because all of the JavaScript templates used to render the HTML view must be downloaded before the required view can be generated. Enter service workers. Through service workers, all framework and application code to output the HTML view can be precached in the browser, thus speeding up both the first meaningful paint and the time to interact. In this article, I will share my experience with implementing service workers for PoP, an SPA website that runs on WordPress, with the goal of speeding up the loading time and providing offline-first capabilities.The post Implementing A Service Worker For Single-Page App WordPress Sites appeared first on Smashing Magazine.

  • Building A Large-Scale Design System: How A Design System Was Created For The U.S. Government (Case Study)
    by Maya Benari on October 9, 2017 at 12:42 pm

        Editor's Note: We’ve been closely working with Maya on this article, and we’re happy to see the final result now being published on 18F. We highly encourage more teams to share the lessons they learned when building design systems or pattern libraries, and we’re always happy to support them in writing, editing and shaping that article. This post is a re-post of Maya’s final article. Today, there are nearly 30,000 U.S. federal websites with almost no consistency between them. Between the hundreds of thousands of government employees working in technology, there’s nothing in common with how these websites are built or maintained.The post Building A Large-Scale Design System: How A Design System Was Created For The U.S. Government (Case Study) appeared first on Smashing Magazine.

  • CSS Grid Challenge: Winners and Templates
    by Cosima Mielke on October 6, 2017 at 12:55 pm

        CSS Grid is becoming the new layout standard for the web, and we are all still experimenting with what we can achieve with it. Some folks assume that CSS Grid is just a replacement for table layouts or Flexbox — but that's simply not true. Some also think that they can use CSS Grid to replicate more advanced print layouts, which brings us all closer to what's possible. Obviously print isn't web, but we can experiment with some of the techniques from print on the web, too. One of the main reasons behind the idea of the CSS Grid Challenge was to have some starting points for layouts, and show what can be achieved with CSS Grids today. Well, we received some many great submissions that it was really hard to choose the one winner — there are so many submissions who deserve to win first place.The post CSS Grid Challenge: Winners and Templates appeared first on Smashing Magazine.

  • Designing A Realistic Chronograph Watch In Sketch
    by Nikola Lazarević on October 5, 2017 at 11:57 am

        If you’re into wristwatches, like me, and are also a fan of the Sketch app (or just want to get better at it), then this is the tutorial for you. In it, you will learn how to create a very realistic and detailed vector illustration of a watch using basic shapes, layer styles and cool Sketch functions such as “Rotate Copies” and “Make Grid.” You'll learn how to apply multiple shadows and how to use gradients, and you will see how objects can be rotated and duplicated in special ways. No bitmap images will be used, which means you will be able to easily adapt the final image to different sizes and resolutions.The post Designing A Realistic Chronograph Watch In Sketch appeared first on Smashing Magazine.

    by Nick Babich on October 4, 2017 at 12:23 pm

        As web design focuses more and more on good user experience, designers need to create the most usable and attractive websites possible. Carefully applied minimalist principles can help designers make attractive and effective websites with fewer elements, simplifying and improving users’ interactions. In this article, I will discuss some examples of minimalism in web design, things to consider when designing minimalist interfaces, and explain why sometimes "less is more". If you’d like to get more creative with your own designs, you can download and test Adobe XD, and get started right away.The post Minimalistic Design With Large Impact: Functional Minimalism For Web Design appeared first on Smashing Magazine.

Since post-logoour founding in 1986, we have kept pace with industry technologies whenever current trends indicated permanent shifts in the marketplace. 2015 has been one of those years of change and with it we introduce our new corporate identity. Moving forward, Z-axis Design will henceforth be known as videyeo.

There is good reason why our moniker appears to be a derivation of the word “video”. Video and its dynamic way of communicating has long been the preferred medium of choice when advertising. However, professional video production with its increased complexity and labor is often outside the reach of many small to medium business budgets. Gradually, over the last 10 years technology for creating and editing video has become easier allowing its production cost to relax somewhat. This lets us offer video services to more customers than ever before with the added benefit of greater customer satisfaction. As these new price points present themselves to us, we gladly pass them on to you.

As we begin to bring video and all its benefits to more customers, our skill set as in years past will remain constant as a one stop shop with services that encompass the full gambit of related technologies for Internet presence, traditional print collateral and marketing strategies.

Other Changes
Significant changes greeted many with Google’s announcementRead the full article on April 21, 2015 that their algorithms would favor mobile responsive websites while the unprepared would suffer a hit on their hard earned SEO rankings. This paradigm shift has caught millions of businesses off guard no matter their size. If you are curious whether or not your site is mobile compliant you can visit the Google “Mobile-Friendly”Check your own website's mobile readiness test page to check.

In light of this announcement as well as our corporate re-branding, our website has been updated to both better serve our customers and lead by example with a mobile responsive site. If you find yourself caught in the lurch with a website design that is not mobile responsive please contact us. To help ease your pain, videyeoo for a limited time will offer a FREE solution to help your website become mobile ready (some restrictions apply).

By becoming mobile ready videyeo and our clients can better serve customers wherever they may be.
