    The term "White Space" is often misused; many believe that it refers to any space in a design that's white. White space actually refers to the "negative space" of a composition. It's not simply "blank" or "unused" space, it plays a key role in the design process. Another crucial role white space plays is eye movement –commonly referred to simply as “movement”. White space allows our eyes to...

    Armed and dangerous, the emunications team set out on an arguably friendly game of paintball. Quality assurance teamed up with design for what we call, "shooting fish in a barrel" - and by fish, we mean Jason and Kevin. On just the second game, I spotted someone atop a building looking down on my teammates. That someone was Jason, who seconds later took a swift paintball to the face. Sure he was...

    For a recent site, we needed to have a menu block be visible on pages which were represented in the menu. That is to say, if the page you are looking at is in the "Editorial stuff" menu, display the editorial stuff menu block. The trick here is to use PHP for determining the block visibility for the menu blocks. If we're looking at a node derivative, the node id should be in the link_path...

    A common problem that I see when working with non-table views is dynamic sorting. It seems as if there's no easy way to make use of the sort functionality that views provides without using the table style. This is the method that I use to get around the problem. I'm not the first to do it this way, and I'm also not convinced it's the easiest way to do it. But it does work and we've used it...
