I have been getting quite a few questions on Instagram on the different ways I create my lettering videos. I have been promising you guys this Post for a while, so here it finally is. I hope this will answer all of your questions and help you guys out.Read More
The pressure curve in procreate seems to be kind of a mystery for a lot of people. As soon as it goes into curve some have problems because it looks quite abstract. But if you get the curve right, you can improove your results greatly, without having to master any additional skill.
I think the pressure curve is one of the most significant settings in iPad lettering, since differences of thick and thin are what brush lettering is all about.
In this short guide I’d like to take you along with my personal little search for my optimal pressure curve. I hope my tips can help you find yours too.Read More
There are three main pen types to do brush lettering. Felt tip brush pens, fude pens and actual bristled brushes. If you want to get into brush lettering I recommend trying all of them. I tried to think of the most cost-effective way to get a good grasp of the different types, without having to spend tons of money. So this is what I’d put on your shopping list for the very first trip to get lettering supplies. I did make a product choice, but this guide will show you a variety of alternatives too. Total cost of my list is around 15 CHF (which is roughly $15)Read More
I’ve never considered myself an artist and probably won’t call myself that for the rest of my life. I can’t draw. Well, at least not without help.
Using Amaziograph the whole being-artsy-thing might actually be worth a shot.Read More
iPad Lettering has become quite popular since my last post about it. I’ve had my iPad Pro and Apple Pencil for exactly 3 month now. There have been some fantastic updates, a lot of new brush releases and quite a big improvement in my personal Lettering since then.
I’ve been getting quite a lot of questions about the iPad and how to go about digital handlettering, so I decided to write this post. I’m gonna give you a quick overview on how to go about starting this whole thing.Read More
I would’ve never thought that I’d ever buy an iPad. I was sure of the fact that I would never (ever) be in love with an Apple product as much as I still adore my beloved iPod classic (which is still in use!). Well, my iPod is still my number one, but this Pad is definitelly getting there. I’ve only had it for 6 days… Combine the iPad Pro with Porcreate and the Apple Pencil and you got a lettering tool that feels like a real brush upgraded with an undo option.Read More
A few months ago I showed you how to write an image slider with Sass only. A while ago I was asked to write a slider with text and animating that text as well. So I took the code and modified it to suit my needs. Today I wanted to sit down and write a post about it, because it has been a while, sorry for that.Read More
My obsession started Dec 30th 2015, when I first picked up one of my nail art brushes and just tried it. Brush lettering. Since then I’ve done it almost every day and so I thought I’d tell you a little bit of my experiences for beginners (which I still am) and what kind of brush pens work for me.Read More
A while ago I finally managed to publish my jekyll starter theme “initum;”. Since it is a pretty packed theme, I wanted to make this post as an introduction on how to use it.Read More
If you want to add some navigation links within jekyll posts that bring you to the previous and next one, it’s a fairly simple thing to achieve, since all articles are found within the paginator. I’m showing you how to do the same thing for collections.Read More
I was looking for a simple responsive image Slider featuring as little markup as possible. It should not be fancy or packed with features, just plain old scrolling through some images. While searching CodePen for inspiration I acutally ran over this pen which was doing exactly what I wanted. Also with CSS only. But when I was trying to write keyframes for another amount of images I though that it would get way overboard if I needed to recalculate the numbers whenever I wanted to change the image count. So I took over the CSS into my Sass workspace and wrote a mixin for the keyframes. This is what I want to go over today. You can check out the demo here if you want to have it full screen.Read More
A while ago I was asked how to get a similar effect for the navbar like in this template. After taking a look at the code I was not super happy with how they solved the problem and decided to do it a little faster and easiert. The result can be seen on the demo page.Read More
I created this menu at work, when we wanted to have two menus but just one off-canvas navigation after the collapse. The idea was to combine an off-canvas menu with a classic navbar and then merge them into one separate off-canvas navigation on the collapse.
Suprisingly, this proved to be not as easy as I initially had thought. But it was still achieved in the end, here you’ll see how.
Menus. The first Menu I wrote was a list that was made looking like a navigation with CSS. I still use a lisst for a drop down menu. But since we are finally ready to use Flexbox, I have given up on lists and turned to a simpler markip.
This navigation is written with flexbos and becomes off-canvas once it collapses.
When I first started creating responsive Websites, navigation was always one of the hardest things to accomplish. Because of that, I almost always went with Bootstrap. But using a pretty huge framework for something pretty small like a menu pretty soon started bothering me. So I searched for tutorials on how to write a responsive menu and soon started, to write my own, because there was almost always something that I did not like.
For all of you out there that are in the same position I was, when I started, I created this menu. It is a three level navigation, that will be generated from a simple link list.
I’m a big grid fan. A “left-middle-right”-layout is something I’ve used hundreds of times. But because I’ve mostly just worked with elements of the same width, I’ve never realized before, that it is actually not that easy, to really center the middle element. So when I recently wanted to do the same thing with three buttons, I found out, that I had to figure out a new method.
But a solution was found and that’s what I want to talk about today.
