part 1 of this series can be found here and part 2 can be found here Well, I’d be lying if I said I picked one winner for my favourite trend of the year. I’m picking  6 trends I’d like to incorporate into more of my design and development this year. Here’s my top 2, both which have occupied the number 1 position in my nerdy little heart. 1.  Mesmerizing, Beguiling and Enchanting Design After half an hour of searching for the perfect adjective, those are three words to describe the trend I’m trying to put words...

the top 5 web design trends for 2016 part 1: bye bye bad photos & hello hero images

Well, I made it. In Vancouver, B.C. in the last 24 hours I survived a moderate midnight earthquake which shook, rattled and rolled my apartment building. I watched the potted cactus wobble and found a doorway to stand in. Nothing like a little vertigo to wake you up.

What the f*!@ is WordPress?

“Oh, so you want a new website, you should totally use WordPress for it”  – sound familiar?  Have no idea what the heck that means?  Let me put it simply (or, as simply as one can) : WordPress is a free, content-management platform that allows you to build and control a website.  Now, that’s a very “nutshell” definition, but that’s the gist of it.  The reasons that WordPress is so darn popular are : it’s free it allows non-techie people to make “most” changes to their websites, on...
