Why do some programmers argue for old solutions like sprite sheets when they are far worse? Here are some reasons why you shouldn’t use sprite sheets.
Development tools for responsive web design are getting better all the time. Unfortunately they are not always obvious. Recently one of my co-workers showed me how Google Chrome has a great tool for showing how a web page responds to changing view port sizes.

As a child, the first things to make me aware of design were the monster magazines that were enjoying the end of their heyday. The boldly painted covers and wildly creative typography drew my eye and inspired me to start drawing my own letterforms.
The graphic design team at HB Design recently completed a series of infographic posters to hang in our front lobby.
I assigned each of the designers a decade, and asked them to design a poster with the following requirements:
