When it comes to web design, every designer tends to have their own favourite coding application. Luckily for Mac users there are plenty of options to choose from, this roundup of HTML and CSS editors pulls together the most popular editing apps with a brief overview of their features.

Coda ($99)

Coda is the swiss army knife of CSS editing apps, it combines code editing features with FTP, SVN, Terminal and a browser preview to produce a do-it-all app. Coda is one of the most popular choices for Mac based Web Designers and is also my personal preference.

CSSEdit ($24.90)

CSSEdit is an editing app with a primary focus on Cascading Stylesheets. The application includes some super handy features for writing and debugging your CSS such as Live Preview and the X-Ray Inspector but being a lightweight application designed specifically for CSS edits, you will need a collection of supporting apps in your toolbox.

TextMate ($54)

TextMate is a comprehensive code editor with a clean and minimal interface. It includes all the common features you would expect from an editing app and has some unique shortcuts that can really speed up the workflow for power users.

Screenshots

BBEdit ($99)

If you find yourself working with large quantities of files, BBEdit might be the application for you. It includes a range of powerful file browsing and search features that allow you to easily find and make edits to snippets of code buried deep in your website directories.

Screenshots

Espresso ($49.84)

Espresso is the sister app to CSSEdit, also created by the folks from MacRabbit. Where CSSEdit focused on CSS, Espresso has much wider support for general coding tasks and includes a range of handy navigation, snippet and auto-completion features, not to mention the built in preview engine and FTP support.

Dreamweaver ($399)

Dreamweaver includes some powerful and unique features for building websites, particularly its infamous ‘Design view’, but it can also be used purely for coding. If you do only use Dreamweaver for coding, the alternative apps mentioned in this post include pretty much the same important features, but also benefit from faster loading times due to their overall more lightweight build.

Screenshots

HyperEdit ($24)

HyperEdit is a super lightweight coding application that combines the edit pane with a Safari powered preview window which allows for fast and easy page building. With the key features of code highlighting, snippets, live validation and support for HTML, CSS, Javascript and PHP it includes everything you need in a small package.

Screenshots

skEdit ($34.95)

skEdit is another lightweight coding app that can be easily extended with more language support. It makes sense to limit the application down to only the languages you use to avoid bloat. Otherwise the application includes project support, code completion, snippets and live preview, so it’s definitely a good competitor to the more wider known options.

Bonus: Firebug (free!)

Although it’s not a code editor at heart, it’s certainly a must-have application for Web Designers. Firebug allows you to tweak and edit your HTML and CSS on your live websites, which can then be ported back to your original files. This live editing cuts out the hassle of changing and re-uploading your files to really speed up your workflow.

Creating Slick Animated jQuery Menus Creating Slick Animated jQuery Menus

In this tutorial we’ll be building a cool navigation list complete with a sliding hover effect.

In this tutorial we’ll be building a cool navigation list complete with a sliding hover effect. Learn how to build the concept in Photoshop, lay out the basic HTML elements, style everything up in CSS then tie it all together with a few lines of jQuery to create a semantic, accessible and degradable menu design.

The design we’ll be building features a cool label image that slides into place under each navigation item on hover. We’ll build the design to work without jQuery first of all to ensure it’s widely accessible to users without Javascript enabled, then enhance the effect with jQuery for the majority of users.

View the animated menu demo

Build the Photoshop concept

Create a new document and fill the background with a light beige. Add a subtle 1.5% noise texture by going to Filter > Noise > Add Noise.

Use a subtle grunge Photoshop brush to add a little extra texture to the top centre of the canvas. Adjust the opacity to tone down the distressed effect.

Draw and fill a rectangle to create the base of the label graphic. Press CMD+T to transform the shape, then drag a guide to highlight the centre point.

Use the Polygonal Lasso tool to draw a small triangle. Use this triangle to clip out the bottom edges. Flip the selection horizontally and align with the guide to ensure the clipping is symmetrical.

Begin adding a range of Layer Style effects to bring the label to life. Start with a Gradient Overlay to add a range of dark to light red tones.

Add a thin stroke using a dark red colour selection with settings of 2px width and aligned to the inside.

Set up an Inner Glow using a slightly lighter red with 100% opacity, Normal blending mode, 50% Choke and 3px in size.

Add a soft Drop Shadow aligned to 90 degrees to give the impression of depth. Reduce the opacity to around 20% to tone down the effect.

Finish off the label with a distressed texture using the subtle grunge brushes. Load the selection of the label shape, inverse and delete out the excess. Change the blending mode to Lighter Color at 35%.

All the menu needs now is a series of text links. Set the fonts up with Helvetica Bold and choose a fill colour from the label. Simulate the hover effect by switching the fill to beige on the active link.

Make a selection of the label graphic and export the image as a PNG24 file with Alpha transparency.

The demo file uses just three images: A textured background image, the red label graphic and a repeating noise texture.

Create the basic HTML structure

The basic menu system first needs to be laid out as a HTML skeleton. Begin the page with a Doctype, followed by page title and a link to the CSS stylesheet. Write out the menu itself as a good old Unordered List element, with each

  • item containing an anchor.

    Style up the design with CSS

    Next, the CSS brings the design to life. Begin the CSS file with a quick reset to remove any default browser styling, then set up the surrounding page design by adding the repeating noise background texture to the page body. Centre up the

      with margin: auto; and text-align: center; and clear the element using overflow: hidden;. /> Float each
    • item to the left to place each nav item side by side. The rest of the styling can then go directly onto the anchors. Each anchor needs to have the exact dimensions of the label graphic, taking into consideration any padding used to position the text into place. Replicate the font styling from Photoshop using the same bold Helvetica styling, and use the CSS3 text-shadow property to recreate the Photoshop Drop Shadow. Finally, add the label graphic as a background image and set the position to -149px so it is hidden off screen until the mouse hovers the nav item. /> Set up the styling for the :hover effects by moving the background back into position and alter the colour of the font and shadow to ensure they can still be seen when the background colour changes.

      A preview of the HTML file so far will show a fully working menu design, albeit with basic CSS styling where the label immediately appears and disappears without any cool sliding effects. It’s important to first develop this basic fall back so users without Javascript enabled will still see a hover effect.

      Spice up the effect with jQuery

      In order to add some fancy Javascript effects we first need to head back to the HTML file and link up some JS files. We’ll require three files: The jQuery library, a handy plugin allowing background position animation, and finally our own blank scripts.js file where we’ll write our own code.

      The first thing to add to our jQuery code is a simple line to turn off the basic CSS effect. Adding a special ‘.js’ class to the anchor with Javascript allows us to add an extra line of CSS to overwrite the original styling. With this out of the way we can then style the actual sliding hover effect. Add a hover function to the anchors within the menu list. On hover, use .animate() to set the backgroundPosition to 0 0, then back off screen on hover-out. A speed of 200 keeps things nice and swift. One extra snippet to add is a .stop(true,true) to prevent the effect looping if the mouse passes over the menu quickly.

      A preview of the effect in the browser will show the label sliding in and out on hover. We can add one extra line to really spruce up the effect. Adding an extra animation to move the label by just 5px creates a cool little bounce effect. Similar effects can also be achieved using easing plugins, but to save linking up extra files this little trick works nicely.

    Follow this overview of the build process to create your own custom WordPress theme. We’ll be taking my latest theme design from its basic HTML and CSS mockup and inserting the various WordPress template tags to build a fully working theme ready to install on your blog.

    Long time readers may remember the build process of the LoveGrid concept where we designed and finished off the mockup as a static HTML and CSS page. Now let’s take this design and convert it into a WordPress theme. If you want to get your hands on this theme for your own site, it’s now available to Access All Areas over on my graphic design blog – Blog.SpoonGraphics.

    How WordPress themes work

    WordPress themes are made up of multiple template files that are all contained in a theme folder. When the index.php file is loaded, PHP tags within this file load other template files, such as the header, sidebar and footer to build a complete page. Different template files are loaded depending on which section the viewer is browsing, so page.php is loaded when the user is viewing a page, and single when the user is viewing a blog post. /> Within these template files are template tags, which provide the dynamic functionality of a WordPress blog. Most of these tags are pretty simple and just need inserting in the right place within the HTML code, for instance the tag inserts the title of that particular post wherever the PHP tag appears in the theme.

    The LoveGrid theme is fairly simple and makes use of just the main template tags. It doesn’t have a sidebar, so sidebar.php isn’t used. Likewise, the search function has been left out to maintain a clean interface, so search.php isn’t required either. When building your theme it’s important to list out the types of template files you will need.

    Getting started

    One of the first steps you must remember to take when building your theme is to set up the basic theme information. At the top of your style.css document add and edit the following information:

    You will also want to add some CSS styling to make sure the alignment of images works. These classes are automatically added by the WordPress WYSIWYG editor:

    Finally, don’t forget to modify the screenshot.png image so your theme displays a nice preview in the Appearance section of the WordPress admin area so it can be identified when selecting a theme.

    Header.php Template File

    Open up your index.html mockup file and copy the code that makes up the header area. This should include all the elements that will appear exactly the same on every page of the site. Paste them into a header.php file within your theme folder. The next step is to go through and insert WordPress template tags in place of the basic HTML. The first will probably be , which will insert the relevant wording into your HTML </code> tag for each page of the site. Other tags used in the header template are <code><?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?></code> to automatically insert a link to the style.css file and <code><?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?></code> to insert a link to the theme directory, which is handy for linking up Javascript files.</p> <p>Just before the closing <code></head></code> tag, the <code><?php wp_head(); ?></code> template tag is used so WordPress can insert any additional code into the head itself, such as meta keywords, description and other plugin specific information.</p> <p>Also included in the header.php file is the header section of the design. Links to the homepage are added using the <code><?php echo get_option('home'); ?></code> template tag. In order to populate the navigation menu, the tag <code><?php wp_list_pages(); ?></code> is used to display all the WordPress pages, with the <code>title_li=</code> parameter clearing out the default title that WordPress would otherwise add.<br<br /> /> Finally, at the end of the navigation list, an extra <code> <li></code> is added to link to the RSS feed using the <code><?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?></code> template tag.</p> <h3>Index.php Template File</h3> <p><a href="http://yoursourceisopen.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/58077c91index.png"></a></p> <p>Switch back over to your mockup HTML file and copy the next chunk of code from where the header left off, down to the footer (or sidebar if you have one). This content will be placed in the index.php template file. At the top of this file the first tag you’ll need is <code><?php get_header(); ?></code>, this will insert the content of the header.php file above your index.php content when the page is viewed in a browser. Next, the WordPress loop checks for content. Within the loop you lay out the HTML for one post, then this is repeated for every post WordPress displays. Continue replacing HTML content with a WordPress template tag, so <code><?php the_permalink(); ?></code> goes wherever there’s a link to the post, <code><?php the_title(); ?></code> goes wherever the post title is displayed and <code><?php the_content(''); ?></code> tells WordPress where to insert the actual post content.</p> <p>Underneath the list of posts we can set up the pagination options. Simply insert the <code><?php next_posts_link('Older posts'); ?></code> and <code><?php previous_posts_link('Newer posts'); ?></code> tags wherever you want these links to appear. Below this we can set up a simple error if no posts were found below the PHP <code>else</code> statement.</p> <p>At the bottom of the document the footer.php file is called using the <code> <php get_footer(); ?></code> template tag. This will render a complete page in the browser by combining the header.php, index.php and footer.php files.</p> <h3>Archive.php Template File</h3> <p><a href="http://yoursourceisopen.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/2112a028archive.png"></a></p> <p>The index.php file is used when viewing the homepage of the blog (unless a page is set as the homepage instead). When the user views a category list or any collection of posts, whether it’s by date, tag or author the archive.php file is used instead. The archive.php file is almost identical to the index, with the addition of a few extra titles to identify what posts the user is browsing.</p> <p>Conditional tags are used to detemine which snippet of content to display, so <code><?php if (is_category()) { ?></code> checks if it’s a category view. If so, a title is displayed that indicates which category it is, using the <code><?php single_cat_title(); ?></code> template tag to print the name of that particular category. Similarly, checks can be made on the date and the relevant month and year can be added to the page. If your site makes use of tags and authors, even more titles can be added using a series of other conditional tags. See the WordPress Codex page on <a href="http://codex.wordpress.org/Conditional_Tags">Conditional Tags</a>.</p> <h3>Page.php and 404.php Template Files</h3> <p><a href="http://yoursourceisopen.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/c894fccdpage.png"></a></p> <p>There are two types of content on WordPress blogs, posts and pages. Out of the two pages are often the most simple. The page.php file is pretty much a stripped down version of the index or archive templates. It still includes the link to the header file, the WordPress loop and the tags to generate the page title, but on a page we don’t need a date, read more link, or meta information.</p> <p><a href="http://yoursourceisopen.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/e0088912404.png"></a></p> <p>Another template file that acts similar to a page is 404.php. This file allows you to customise an error page just in case a 404 File Not Found error appears on your blog. This file is even more simple that page.php as the content is coded directly without any special WordPress tags.</p> <h3>Single.php and Comments.php Template Files</h3> <p><a href="http://yoursourceisopen.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/506c0fc9single.png"></a></p> <p>The single.php file is the template used whenever a blog post is viewed. The first portion of the file is pretty much identical to how the post content is laid out in the other template files, the main difference is blog posts also include comments, so the <code><?php comments_template(); ?></code> template tag is used to call the comments.php file.</p> <p><a href="http://yoursourceisopen.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/6e79ea13comments.png"></a></p> <p>Inside the comments.php file there’s a bunch of comment specific tags that enable you to build a thorough comments section. <code><?php comments_number(); ?></code> is a simple tag used to display the number of comments on a post, with parameters allowing you to edit the wording as you please. The comments file has its own mini loop, <code><?php if ( have_comments() ) : ?></code> checks to see if there are any comments on the post, then the whole list of comments is simply inserted using just one tag: <code><?php wp_list_comments(); ?></code>. The comments file has its own set of pagination links, which combined with the WordPress discussion settings allow you to split comments over multiple pages.</p> <h3>Footer.php Template File</h3> <p><a href="http://yoursourceisopen.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/8f4115d6footer.png"></a></p> <p>To finish off the theme, all we need to do is fill out the content in the footer.php file. Remember this file has been called from many of the other template files to round off the page with the rest of the HTML required. The file continues where the others left off. In this particular design the footer file begins with a list of categories using the <code><?php wp_list_categories(); ?></code> template tag with a range of parameters clearing out the default post count and title as well as hiding specific categories such as ‘Uncategorized’. Usually this particular template tag would be found in the sidebar, but as with most WordPress tags it doesn’t matter where you place them in your theme.</p> <p>Next up in my footer file is a spot of <code><?php query_posts(); ?></code>. This section isn’t someting usually required in your average theme, but it is used to create a separate list of posts outside the main WordPress loop. In this theme it’s used to display the latest 6 posts.</p> <p>Another tag you wouldn’t usually see in a theme is <code><?php wpp_get_mostpopular(); ?></code>. This particular tag is unique to the <a href="http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-popular-posts/">WordPress Popular Posts plugin</a>, but it shows how additional functionality can be added using plugins and their custom tags. In the public theme this tag is wrapped in a <code><?php if (function_exists); ?></code> statement to ensure it doesn’t break the theme if that particular plugin isn’t installed.</p> <h3>The Final WordPress Theme</h3> <p>So basically the whole process of building a theme involves pasting a bunch of template tags in between your HTML. Many of the most common tags are listed out in this post, but you’ll also want to keep the <a href="http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags">WordPress Codex</a> open in order to refer to the whole library of template tags available. On most occassions there’s a tag out there that will help you achieve the exact function you have in mind.</p> <p>With all the HTML, CSS and PHP template tags in place the theme is now ready for installation and testing.</p> <p><a href="http://chrisspooner.com/themes/lovegrid/"></a></p> <p><a href="http://chrisspooner.com/themes/lovegrid/">View the LoveGrid theme demo</a></p> <p><br /> <br /> See more here:<br /> <a target="_blank" href="http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Line25/~3/5FzgCdvoVZ4/how-to-create-your-own-custom-wordpress-theme" title="How To Create Your Own Custom WordPress Theme">How To Create Your Own Custom WordPress Theme</a></p> <h4>Incoming search terms:</h4><ul><li>can we create database from within wordpress</li></ul> </td> </tr> </table> </div> <div class="item"> <table> <tr> <td class="img"><a href="http://yoursourceisopen.com/7587-how-to-design-custom-youtube-backgrounds"><img src="http://yoursourceisopen.com/wp-content/themes/Gadgetine/scripts/timthumb.php?src=/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/b7a10cc725.jpg&w=160&h=120&zc=1&q=100" alt="How To Design Custom YouTube Backgrounds" /></a></td> <td class="title"> <a href="http://yoursourceisopen.com/7587-how-to-design-custom-youtube-backgrounds">How To Design Custom YouTube Backgrounds</a><p class="caps"> <p></p> <p> Have a YouTube channel? </p> <p></p> <p>Have a YouTube channel?

In order to make sure our design fits well with the YouTube website and its various palettes we need to base it on a template. Here’s a YouTube design template I made earlier, download it and feel free to use it in all your future projects. The template highlights where each palette is located and shows how much of the page is seen by common monitor resultions.</p> <p><a href="http://line25.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/youtube/YouTube-Background-Template.zip">Download the YouTube PSD template</a></p> <p></p> <p>The first step towards our dark gaming channel design is a camo pattern background. Here I’m using my <a href="http://www.blog.spoongraphics.co.uk/freebies/free-camouflage-patterns-for-illustrator-photoshop">free repeating camo patterns</a> I posted on Blog.SpoonGraphics, with a slight colour adjustment.</p> <p></p> <p>Next, draw a large selection around the main YouTube container from the template and fill it with black on a new layer.</p> <p></p> <p>Download a grungy texture like this one from <a href="http://lostandtaken.com/gallery/scratched-7.html">LostandTaken</a> and scale it into position over the black area in the design. Reduce the opacity to tone down the grungy effect.</p> <p></p> <p>Toggle on the template and CMD+click the palettes layer thumbnail to load the selection. Fill these palettes with a black background and reduce the opacity so the texture can be seen through them.</p> <p></p> <p>Create a new layer then right click the selection and choose Stroke. Enter 1px with the color White. Change this layer to Soft Light.</p> <p></p> <p>Use the Eraser tool with a soft brush setting at 50% opacity to grunge up these borders by erasing out random areas.</p> <p></p> <p>Being a military themed gaming channel means we need guns, lots of guns! Scour the stock photo websites for various weaponry. I originally developed this design for an <a href="http://www.blog.spoongraphics.co.uk/tutorials/how-to-create-the-expendables-winged-skull-poster-art">Expendables Movie poster tutorial</a>, check out that post for more details!</p> <p></p> <p>Open up each weapon photo into Photoshop and desaturate, then use the Magic Wand to quickly make a selection of the object.</p> <p></p> <p>Go to Select > Modify > Contract and enter 2px in the settings. This helps clip out any unwanted white area that the Magic Wand might have included in the selection.</p> <p></p> <p>Clip out every weapon image you find and compile the selections in a new document. Aim to find a range of weapons of various sizes, including knives.</p> <p></p> <p>The images won’t be in proportion with each other, so scale and order each weapon according to their actual size.</p> <p></p> <p>Starting with the largest weapon and moving down, rotate and position the guns so they flare out in a kind of wing shape.</p> <p></p> <p>If the tones of some weapons don’t match, quickly adjust the Levels to clip their shadows and highlights.</p> <p></p> <p>The smaller weapons may need duplicating to fill out their area of the wing. Stack these weapons to give the impression of layered feathers.</p> <p></p> <p>Finally arrange the knives until the rotation of elements reaches the 180 degrees mark. Again stack and layer these objects to fill in any gaps.</p> <p></p> <p>When all the weapons have made up a complete wing shape, group them together and paste them into the main YouTube design document.</p> <p></p> <p>Scale and position the wing behind the content panel. Take into consideration the common monitor resolution guides to ensure the weapons will fit within the screen area of most viewers.</p> <p></p> <p>Paint in a blue overlay over the weapons to add a cool colour cast. This blue will also be sampled for use as the link colour to tie the design together.</p> <p></p> <p>Duplicate the group of wings, right click and selection flip horizontally, then position the duplicate in the same place on the opposite side.</p> <p></p> <p>Toggle on the design template to double check the scale of the design and its elements. This design will fit into 1440px resolutions, but the tips of the larger guns will be cropped off on anything smaller.</p> <p></p> <p>We also need to take into consideration larger monitor resolutions and browser window scrolling, so add a black fill to fade out the edges of the design to a solid colour.</p> <p></p> <p>Crop the design as tightly as possible, then save the image. Compress the JPEG settings as far as you can while keeping an acceptable image quality. The max filesize YouTube accepts is 256kb.</p> <p></p> <p>Log into your YouTube profile and edit your channel. Upload the background image and deselect the repeat option. Then go through and edit the design background, text and link colours. Also remember to set the transparency of the YouTube wrapper and palettes to 100% so the underlying background can be seen.</p> <p><a href="http://www.youtube.com/chrisjspooner"></a></p> <p>Check out the final design over at my <a href="http://www.youtube.com/chrisjspooner">gaming channel on YouTube</a>.

Their skills in the arts cannot be compared and demonstrate a powerful digital force among Internet readers. Luckily understanding how to read Japanese isn’t required to admire their website graphics and animation effects.</p> <p>We’ll be looking into a few Japanese website designs which have pushed the limits on conventional development. As a designer it’s a refreshing feeling to work with alternate design concepts and build your own unique ideas off these.</p> <h2>The Rise in Flash</h2> <p>Many of the most popular Japanese websites have been built in Flash, and this is no surprise. Although Flash-based websites do not rank very well in Google (at all) they offer a unique user experience which can’t be found anywhere else.</p> <p>In fact, Flash offers so much extensible content you may be surprised at just what is possible. Motion backgrounds and animated menu effects are just the tipping point on many Adobe Flash powered websites. Intricate portfolio layouts and detailed characters almost spring to life off the webpage.</p> <p></p> <p>One overlooked misconception is the loading speed of each page. Because the entire website is Flash-based it will require a large amount of bandwidth to transfer and download all of the page content. This frequently leads to very long loading/splash pages which are a huge loss for potential user experience.</p> <p>Although in the end it’s difficult to provide any judgement on the Flash-based approach. There are also many Japanese websites which are built off HTML5/CSS3 so I’m not categorizing all layouts as Flash-based. However with such a wide range of out-of-box thinking Japan has shown us a new outlook on envisioning the modern day website design.</p> <h2>Animation Ignition</h2> <p>It seems the Japanese community is well renowned for their work in the digital animation arts. Ranging from television to video games it seems the artistic works meld into the islands’ society and culture.</p> <p></p> <p>In many new-age web designs we are seeing much more illustrated artwork and digital graphics. Icon designers have also integrated an enormous amount of hand-drawn effects into their works. Japanese website designs have become much more <strong>branded</strong> by the likes of mascots, illustrated vectors, and small page icons.</p> <p>Similarly artists who offer these graphics showcase their work on many places throughout the web. Twitter backgrounds and Deviant Art accounts are full of some amazing illustrations from past designs.</p> <h2>Custom UI Pattern</h2> <p>This is a common trend amongst web designers and has been growing rapidly. Many Japanese companies which involve their products in the entertainment sector have gone above and beyond to create a dynamic user interface to match their website.</p> <p></p> <p>Many of the websites coming to mind include innovative virtual worlds from video games. <a href="http://katamaridamacy.jp/">Katamari Damacy</a> and <a href="http://www.square-enix.co.jp/kingdom2/">Kingdom Hearts II</a> specifically stand out as offering a very powerful user interface presence. The striking similarity between menu links in-game and on the webpages are resounding.</p> <p>This can be seen not only for these games, but countless other series. The most common approach of course is an entire Flash-based website constructed through ActionScript events. Even so, other Japanese graphics artists are creating unique UI effects outside of just the video game industry.</p> <h2>Elements of Physical Reality</h2> <p>It’s not too often we’ll see images of physical reality built into the most popular websites of today. This is quite the contrary of many popular Japanese artists which in fact specialize in building outstanding modern-day layouts.</p> <p>These include shots of arial birds-eye-view photos from cities and taller buildings. Many times the background or Flash animation on a page will include common everyday natural elements such as cats, trees, cars, and entire human cities. There are neat user effects applied to create a natural mood (e.g. website colors changing from day to night).</p> <p></p> <p>These graphics of buildings and people can sometimes even be built into the website itself. The varied degree of creativity from Japan shows even entire websites using a small land mass as navigation for the entire website. Pages can be accessed via buildings, lawn signs, even blimps flying atop the page heading!</p> <h2>Web Gallery Showcase</h2> <p>Below is a small collection of Japanese website designs. These include mostly Flash pages with animation effects and custom UI elements. If you’re looking for design inspiration this may be one of the most creative and “out-there” galleries.</p> <p>The designs are from a selection of varied topics and niches from a handful of time periods.
