It's time to put the front-end developers back in charge

Whether you're selling products, publishing scientific articles, or facilitating social networking, you have to put design first. This also means putting your users first and thinking about why they come to your site, what they do there, what device they are using to view the site and interact with it. At Code Enigma we find the best way to approach the design challenge is to prototype sites outside Drupal first so that we can test out user experience, check the site works on multiple devices and screen sizes, and produce efficience, standards-compliant code. This approach also allows us to test for browsers and accessibility before we then bring together optimised page markup with the power of Drupal to manage content, users, and assets like images or video.

Find out more about how we go about putting design in charge in three example sites built on prototypes.

We built this site in the first three months of 2014. The client approached us in December 2013requesting us to lead their existing development team in rebuilding the existing site in Drupal 6 in Drupal 7 with a complete overhaul of the site architecture and design. As the client had already commissioned wireframes and design, we started by building the entire site as an HTML prototype. This is the most reliable method for ensuring responsiveness across many devices and form factors. Prototyping also allows us to check for accessibility and to provide an early opportunity for stakeholders to test user experience. Our development team are charged with making Drupal output exactly the same markup as the design team have used for the prototype. With that in mind, we encourage customers to get the source code for sites examined by people who know Drupal; once you exclude the head of the pages to focus on the body, it’s hardly possible to tell this is being done in Drupal apart from a few giveaway classes in the body tag. This also means the page-weight is reduced so the page loads faster on mobile devices. Interestingly, that also helps page loads on slow connections; in other words, designing for the latest devices reinforces good practice going back fifteen years. This site has a truly global audience, and it particularly targets the Chinese market; hence the ability to read the site in Chinese script. Although the site uses content delivery networks (CDN) to achieve performance in all countries (as well as access to the Chinese market), it also performs well by using lean markup, which is yet another benefit of a prototype driven model.

Mosaic Science

We developed this site for the Wellcome Trust between October 2013 and March 2014. The core of the design work was actually done by the Clearleft design agency. Their front-end specialists produced design patterns in HTML and one of the key considerations for the Wellcome Trust was that we could give a guarantee that we could make Drupal output HTML markup that absolutely replicated their design patterns. We achieved this by using an extension of the semantic panels model that we call ‘Planer’ ( ). This project developed by one of our team strips out Drupal markup and enables us to put in the markup as produced by a front-end design team. Mosaic Science launched in March 2014 and by June the editorial team have tracked over 1 million page-reads both on the site and on external sites carrying the content under a creative commons licence. We are now assisting Wellcome Trust to transition all their sites to Drupal, and in every case there is a requirement that the site must be mobile-first responsive outputting markup created by their front-end design team.

James Hargreaves Bathrooms

In this case we were completely in charge of both the re-design and build. James Hargreaves specialises in providing luxury bathroom suites and fittings so the key requirement was to carry lots of high-quality product images whilst remaining mobile-first responsive.

The actual product photo pages are the hub of this site, with metadata attached to each linking to other content in the site. Users are taken on a journey from any entry point through the site via the images to the final destination that is the showroom details.

It was hugely important to show large high quality photos. On mobile and other small displays the images are delivered optimised for the viewport size, so mobile users won’t be downloading needlessly large files.

We’re one of the most experienced Drupal teams in Europe, best known for our work on large, technically challenging projects for all kinds of clients.

Our team is passionate about Drupal and open source software. Our whole company spends at least four weeks per year working on Drupal modules or other open source projects. We’re also strongly committed to putting design first, taking a mobile-first, content-out approach to creating websites. This ensures that the sites we build combine the power of Drupal with best practice design and development.

As much as we love a business visionary, we are not them, and never could be. All leaders have their own unique talents, which they will use in different ways to bring out the best in themselves and others. Here are 5 ways to discover your own strongest qualities and put them to work in business and in life.

The business press loves to create mythic heroes of industry and we love it, too. To a point.


As much as we love a business visionary like, say, Steve Jobs–and we love him to pieces–we are not Steve Jobs, and never could be. Nor should we. All leaders have their own unique talents, which they will use in different ways to bring out the best in themselves and others. Here are 5 ways to discover your own strongest qualities and put them to work in business and in life.

1. Don’t compare yourself with others–but do approach people who inspire, and even intimidate, you. Are there people in your life who wow or even intimidate you? Are you jealous of them? Go up and introduce yourself, allow yourself to be a part of their lives, and even offer to contribute to their milieu if you are so inclined. If they have a quality you are charged by, perhaps you have not given yourself permission to explore and develop those sides of yourself? Consider aligning yourself with people you feel competitive toward–it’s a new world and we have much to learn from each other.

1. Don’t compare yourself with others–but do approach people who inspire, and even intimidate, you.

2. Don’t concentrate on weaknesses, do concentrate on strengths. First, find out what your strengths are. Go online and take a Briggs Meyers test, an Enneagram test, or buy the Gallup Strengths Finder 2.0 book. There are even more robust ways to discover your unique talents, abilities, and ways of thinking by talking with a career coach. Or try them all and see what works. Self-understanding and self-support is key.

2. Don’t concentrate on weaknesses, do concentrate on strengths.

Working on one’s weaknesses only brings misery and self-doubt. Concentrating on your strengths brings a better sense of fulfillment and forward progress.

3. Eliminate your weaknesses by partnering with others. Albert Einstein was initially a failure who leaned heavily Black GG Marmont continental wallet Gucci kpId5KXHi
. Many now believe she ultimately helped him devise his famous equation. Let’s be honest: He was a dreamer with his head in the clouds (and thank goodness he was). He came to success in roundabout ways. His wife kept her head on straight and together they accomplished greatness. That is the value of having a partner and team, varieties of perspectives, talents, and skills to get the job done. How is your team?

MailChimp has plans to merge its TinyLetter product with the rest of its newsletter services — though the change won't happen this year. TinyLetter, which was acquired by MailChimp in 2011, has a big following with indie writers who like the simplicity of the format and user experience.

The hearts of indie writers everywhere broke on Tuesday following an Inc. report that MailChimp will phase out the popular newsletter service TinyLetter.

Not so fast, MailChimp told Business Insider. A representative for the company said that while TinyLetter will eventually merge into MailChimp's existing newsletter services, "there are no plans to sunset TinyLetter in 2018."

from Philip Kaplan, a web entrepreneur perhaps best known for creating the Fucked Company website, which documented the downfall of numerous dot-com companies and lampooned their excesses.

Though just a few months old at its time of acquisition, TinyLetter quickly developed a following with independent writers who appreciated the simplicity of both the newsletter and the user interface.

MailChimp, which offers enterprise-grade email marketing services, liked TinyLetter for the same reasons that users did.

"You could think of TinyLetter as a 'MailChimp Lite.' A more directionally accurate analogy would be, 'Gmail on steroids,'" MailChimp CEO Ben Chestnut wrote at the time of the acquisition. "Basically, TinyLetter is for people what MailChimp is for business."

MailChimp is still light on the details of what a it will mean to have TinyLetter merged with its MailChimp newsletter services.

The representative said that "it will still have the same super-simple newsletter building capabilities, with a refreshed, updated user experience."

But for now, at least, TinyLetter lovers can carry on as they have been for the past seven years.

15 things you're doing that make people dislike you immediately

The Weather of the World, by Yann Kebbi for the New York Times

It’s been a year in which all the old norms of politics, society and culture seemed to be crumbling, austerity gathered pace, the distance between citizenry and their representatives widened, and even nuclear war seemingly became a possibility.

This sense of global anxiety and alienation was reflected in the work of a number of illustrators. For example, French artist Yann Kebbi took the ideas of catastrophe and fracturing as the inspiration for a number of impactful pieces, including one for the New York Times, shown above.

And similarly, New York illustrator, printmaker and comic book artist Evan M Cohen’s Noise series portrays the stress, fear and delusion of modern life in stark monochromatic scenes.

Ominous and disturbing, the work of Brooklyn-based illustrator Minju An takes delight in the deconstruction of body parts, while German artist Max Guther draws on the influence of Bauhaus architects to hold up a dispassionate mirror to the empty banalities of modern existence.

Elsewhere, Illustrator Noa Snir’s series Disorder explored a variety of common psychological problems through dramatic black and white linocuts.

The 90s influence is strong in the work of Igor Bastidas

In uncertain times, there’s always safety and comfort to be found in the familiar. For a long while, we’ve all been indulging in 1980s nostalgia, but 2017 saw that finally start to give ground to 1990s retro.

Yes, it’s finally time to look back longingly on the last decade of the last century, and leading the pack is Miami-based illustrator and animator Igor Bastidas , whose work for MTV, Converse and Cartoon Network highlights his love of clean lines and solid colours.

Other exponents of the 90s vibe include Rotterdam-based illustrator Modal Scarf Watercolor Space Paint by VIDA VIDA ymm7Zx
, whose work is peppered with 90s pop culture references, and Paillettes Silver Earrings one size Saskia Diez ljpnbhC
, who’s strongly influenced by the vibrant colours of 90s cartoons.

Part of Andrew Archer’s Edo Ball series, which combines images of basketball and Japanese art

Whether its traditional Ukiyo-e art, anime-style art or artworks inspired by Japanese culture, cities and fashions, one 2017 illustration trend to have continued developing is that of Japanese influence.

Take for example Edo Ball , a series by New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based illustrator Andrew Archer inspired by “basketball, culture, Japan and Ukiyo-e art” (above). Or there’s small Ophidia GG shoulder bag Nude amp; Neutrals Gucci raV2zQunQh
, a spoof illustrated series of tributes to covers of The New Yorker and The Parisianer, established by British illustrator Andrew Joyce, French art director David Robert, and Japanese illustrator and creative director Tatsushi Eto.
