Welcome to HummingbirdUK
We've been designing websites for over 20 years - back when we created our first web pages Google didn't exist, Netscape Navigator was the browser of choice, and if your site had 50Kb of unnecessary content you'd doom your visitors to two extra seconds' waiting time on every page.
In the years since we've found some principles to be ever-present. Usability and utility are key. Design, whilst important, should be experienced and not noticed. Keep things simple. Conventions should be followed, not ignored. Don't make users think, and definitely don't waste their patience.
Good design is obvious. Great design is transparent.Joe Sparano
After a brief(ish) mid-season hiatus we’re back to take what we learned about responsive design and incorporate it to improve our project’s handling of different screen sizes.
The arrival of Day 25 means that we’ve got a few concepts to run through before the end of our series, so let’s start with a look at what responsive website design is, and how to implement it.
Day 24 in our series sees us bring together some of the things we’ve looked at over the previous three videos to integrate submenus into our main menu bar.
The next video in our series sees us round off the last of three days of theory, on positioning, before we move on in the next video to putting that into practice.
After yesterday’s break from coding, we’re making up for it today by a whistle-stop look through display, visibility, opacity and an introduction to more specific positioning.
We’re taking a break from pure coding today, and stepping back to look at an important consideration of building a website, which is optimising its contents for speed.
