Here are the things that I think are worth reading and checking out this week:
‘320 and Up’ lightweight, content first responsive web design boilerplate
I was playing around this week with the 320 and up responsive web framework which offers Five CSS3 Media Query increments (480, 600, 768, 992 and 1382px), ability to change the design ‘atmosphere’ (colour, texture and typography) separated from layout, bootstrap styles for buttons, forms and tables and finally Modernizr, Selectivizr, responsive type tester and design tester. Learn more about the framework and download it here.
How to be a creative director
I have seen hundreds of articles from all kinds of authors claiming that they know what goes into being a great creative director. I find that 95% of them was nothing but a waste of time because they don’t really understand how to lead a team and really don’t understand creativity beyond a theory. This article however is one of the few exceptions where the insights from some leading creative directors are dead on and I completely agree with pretty everything said. Read the article here.
