QR Codes are everywhere. From magazines, to storefronts, to toy stores, it is hard to venture out in the world without seeing them. Here are three fantastic ways that QR codes have been used within the past year.
I always get excited when I open my browser in the morning and a cool Google Doodle pops up on my screen. You know what a Google Doodle is. It’s the different interpretations of the Google logo that changes on an almost daily basis. Google Doodles are great…they are both educational and entertaining, and the creativity behind them is endless. My favorite Doodles are the interactive and animated ones. Not surprising since my job title is Interactive Designer, and I went to school for animation. Here are some of my favorites from the past year:
My job as an Interactive Designer requires me to spend a lot of time on the computer designing and writing code, and making interactive recommendations. I take full advantage of the amazing Add-ons FireFox has available. Here are some of my favorites:
Have you ever wanted to find out how many pixels wide or high something is on your screen? This Add-On allows you to do just that.
ColorZilla is an eyedropper tool for the internet. It provides you with the rgb or hex of any color on the screen. The tool also includes easy to use ‘click to copy’ functionality.
This Add-On displays the IP address of the current page you are on. You can then right-and left-click on the icon to look up whois information on the domain and IP address.
Web Developer Toolbar
The Web Developer Toolbar is a web designer’s secret weapon. It has a lot of really cool features, but I love how it allows you to edit css on the fly, and will automatically re-size your browser to specific dimensions.
