It has been a while since I've had a chat conversation with another designer/developer (it was with Chris Coyier). But for the last couple of weeks, I've had a great chat/interview with Franz Jeitz, which you may know from his blog: fudgegraphics - freebies, tutorials and inspiration for design lovers.
Let's sit down, take a cup of tea together with this tea-lover from London, and read this chat conversation with this creative man behind the scenes of fudgegraphics. Did you know the fudge-part of the name doesn't have anything to do with the food? Wonder what it does mean? I promise you, you'll find his answer surprising.

Navigation is one of the things you'll see on every website. I wanted to give this part a little bit extra life, and when I saw a movie yesterday that included slot machines, it suddenly hit me. Using jQuery and some basic CSS and HTML, we could add some sweet slot machine style animation to a normally boring kind of navigation. So, for today, we'll be creating a slot machine style navigation that you could use on your website.
Since it's not such an advanced technique, this is also a jQuery quickie. These relatively simple tutorials will also give you a good understanding of jQuery. Simply check out the demo or download the source to see what we're going to make.
Already wondering how it works? Check out how you can create this slot machine yourself. Of course, this could easily be transported to be used with social media buttons (instead of the main navigation of your site).

Time for another relatively simple jQuery tutorial, just like my previous jQuery quickie. At work, I'm currently working with Silverlight and implemented unlimited scroll. This is a great technique that could be used on loads of websites. Instead of the regular pagination, where the user has to click to see the next page, unlimited scroll automatically loads the next page when the user is at the bottom.
I wanted to take this technique and port it to another jQuery example. So the quickie for today is Unlimited scroll using jQuery. I've using the Twitter API to make the example, so you'll learn a little bit about JSON too.
Simply check out the demo to see the first tweets from my Twitter stream. Scroll down to load more tweets and see the unlimited scroll in action.
Of course, you can use this same technique for something else instead of loading tweets, for example for loading next blog posts etc. Now, let's take a look at how you can create this Twitter example.

Do you remember the Wicked CSS3 3d bar chart that I placed online a couple of weeks ago? Paul Irish left a comment, requesting for an example with transitions. My reply was that I was already working on that, and today I'm proud to release the animated wicked CSS3 3d bar chart.
The principle is the same as the previous version: Create a beautiful 3d bar chart. But this time, we don't create a "stacked" one (since animation would be hard), but several bars placed under each other. When hovering, the animation shows and the bar will grow to the appropriate size.
One of the neatest things of this example (in my opinion), is that it uses the exact same HTML (except for the title) as the original article (wicked CSS3 3d bar chart). It's a great example to show what you can do with flexible CSS; You can create a totally different page with the same HTML and using only a different style sheet file.
Take note that this example only works in
-webkit based browsers (Safari and Chrome), because those are the browsers that currently only support CSS3 animation (The next version of Firefox will support animations too). So, once again, this example is just a sneak peak into some awesome stuff CSS3 can do for us.
