As you might already know, I'm Dutch. This simply means that I was born and live in a country called The Netherlands (a.k.a. Holland). When looking at prejudices: The country of cheese, wooden shoes, windmills and (legal) drugs.
But I'm not the only one having roots in this part of the world. A couple of (big) companies started their business here. Some of them became really big and grew to international sizes.
Today, I present you a list with business logos from companies that have their roots in the Netherlands. One this really noticed me when making this list: Loads of logos use the colour blue.
I have to admit: These logos are not the most beautiful ones I've ever seen. Still, I'm pretty sure you can draw some inspiration by looking at these. Get ready to get your identity design fluids going!

First things first here: I'm a Mac guy. But I must say: Windows 7 has made quite a lot improvements compared to it's predecessor (Vista). The first time I booted the OS and saw flying orbs create the Windows logo, I was impressed.
I was even more impressed by the amazing user interface improvements made by Microsoft. For those that aren't familiar with these, here's a complete list with sweet UI improvements on Windows 7. Below is the startup screen created by the flying orbs.
A small little diclaimer here: I've fully skipped the "Windows Vista Era", since I moved to Mac OSX right after Windows XP. There might be some things in this list that were already implemented in Vista, but I wasn't aware of those. Also, this list only shows the graphical improvements - not the technical.
That being said, let's check out the slick UI improvements Microsoft brought to their new OS. It could be pretty inspirational for you too!

Planet Collision: Free November 2009 Calendar Wallpaper was originally my entry for the Desktop Wallpaper collection on SmashingMagazine. Sadly, my wallpapers weren't selected to be included in the list, but I still wanted to share them with the rest of the world.
I hope you enjoy them and use them as your wallpaper. These wallpapers are totally free for all kinds of use. Next to the versions that has a calender on them, the non-calender version has been included (in case you want to use it in other months too).
These wallpapers come in a 4:3 (normal) and 16:9 (widescreen) aspect ratio. Also, an iPhone version has been included. The wallpaper was my outcome after following the great space explosion tutorial.

Just recently, I noticed something pretty cool at Google Images: When you resize your browser, search results are hidden/shown, depending if it makes a full row. It does really have a big advantage: you'll never have any "empty spots" on your website. The grid is always fully filled and results that don't fit in the grid, are simply hidden.
I wanted to recreate this technique using jQuery. Just like Google Images, it check how many images fit in each row and hides the one that fall off (depending on the browser size).
The difference between my HTML and the one Google, is that Google uses a
table to display the image. My version uses floating images (but essentially, they work the same). Just make sure to check out the demo.
Now let's take a deeper look at the problem, the solution and how you create your own browser size aware content scaling.

The use of HTML lists (
<ol> for an ordered list,
<ul> for an unordered list) is very common these days. Today, we're going to look a little bit further than creating regular lists, by showing 8 different ways to beautifully style your HTML lists with CSS. We'll use some pure CSS techniques to make a bored list look awesome (and even have some extra functionality).
As a reminder, here's how a default ordered list and a unordered list look like:
- Ordered list item #1
- Ordered list item #2
- Ordered list item #3
- Unordered list item #1
- Unordered list item #2
- Unordered list item #3
And check out the demo to see what we're going to create with it.
Looks much better, doesn't it? And you get all that, just by adding a couple of sweet CSS stuff. Want to know how? Here we go!
