The SWAT Engineering website recently received a visual update. I've made some responsive templates based on a design by Kitty Molenaar. The designs use CSS Grid and any animations or client side behaviours are pure CSS based, so no Javascript necessary.

The flex workspace I rent in Amsterdam is called Concertgemaal. Each month the space is repurposed as a classical concert hall. To promote these concerts a flyer is designed by Bart van den Tooren (BVDT). Since I liked the design so much I flexed some css muscles and recreated it online. You can view it on the concertgemaal subdomain.

Tue, 12/17/2013 - 11:20

Sometimes the small tips are the nicest. If you own a smartphone or tablet it can be annoying to enter an email address in a regular textfield. If you fill out a form and select the email field you expect a virtual keyboard layout suited for filling in email addresses, not your default keyboard layout. The simple trick to get this field to behave is to use the correct HTML5 tag.
