Subtle Patterns

November 19th, 2012 by Adrian

I’m really loving this website. It’s called Subtle Patterns and it has a huge collection (over 300) of quality subtle patterns that are tile-able and can be used for repeating backgrounds. The site has been created by Atle Mo, but many of the textures are submitted by users. Only the very best get selected by Atle, maintaining a high quality to the collection. So next time you want to give your flat backgrounds a bit of a lift head on over to subtlepatterns.com

The Graphical Web

October 17th, 2012 by Adrian

Last month there was a conference held in Zurich, Switzerland at the Institute of Cartography and Geoinformation called The Graphical Web. It used to be called SVG Open, but this time the name change is to reflect the wider graphical web technologies (SVG, Canvas, CSS transitions, CSS transforms, tooling etc).

You can see what the schedule was here. One of my favourite speakers was there, Joshua Davis.

The main reason for this blog post is to highlight the fact that they recorded all the sessions and have put them online for free. There are some really interesting sessions here. Check them out below …

Here is a full list of the sessions …

Enjoy!
