Our web design tools are holding us back

nowadays we can build things with CSS that are impossible to create with our design tools. We have scroll-snap, we have complicated animations, we have all kinds of wonderful interaction, grid, flexbox, all kinds of shapes, and so much more that you won’t find in the drop down menus of your tool of choice. Yet our websites still look and behave like they were designed with photoshop.


  1. Responsive Icons with SVG

    There have already been some explorations on responsive SVG images a while back, but when Joe Harrison posted a responsive icon concept on Dribbble and even a working version on a dedicated website, a few people thought this was so wrong they had to make their own version. I must admit I'm one of them… 😉

  2. Where is the Fold?

    OK, on le sait tous, « there is no page fold », mais savoir où est ce non fold peut être carrément utile, alors heureusement qu'il y a des outils qui permettent de visualiser simplement ce que donne un site sur les résolutions les plus courantes.
