Designs for Webbredaktoren

The last few weeks have been hectic, for several reasons. One of them is that I've been busy working on several projects simultaneously, two of which have been Drupal powered websites. I apologize to you my readers for the lack of updates but it has been a consequence of a lack of time.

"Thank you IDF"

I'm posting something different this time, something that is a bit more poetic than my usual ramblings. This was written by my girlfriend who's in Lebanon and who has a much better writer's voice than I'll ever hope to have. Enjoy!

If you could, would you stop a crime from happening?

According to some theories of moral understanding, acting according to one's moral conviction without regard to personal safety or the conventions of society is the highest tier on the ladder of moral maturity. Very few people can claim do have done it, and those who do seem to be among some of the most inspiring leaders and visionaries of our time, including people like Nelson Mandela and Gandhi. But the time for miracle efforts for justice isn't over as the world is seeing the war in the Middle East deteriorate and stands mostly passively by and watches a state systematically harass and kill the civilian population of another, you could also speak out against it and work for a better world.

Lebanon, beauty ravaged by destruction

I'm back in Sweden after two strange weeks in Lebanon, filled with wonder, excitement but also nervousness and frustration due to the situation that is unfolding there. I've been experiencing a relatively unknown country that deserves more than it reputation has. It is a beautiful country, situated on the rolling hills and mountainsides overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, offering beaches, mountains, skiing and a capital with a vibrant culture and nightlife. Lebanon is a fusion of west and east, hard to define but easy to love for its eclectic progressive young soul and generous cuisine.

I've been busy lately creating nine unique designs for Webbredaktören, a local company that is launching a breakthrough website setup service. What makes their service so unique is that it isn't just like any hosting or website package which usually includes just site building and hosting without any site maintenance, this service also includes your very own webmaster!

The problem with CSS and why designers think with tables

Submitted by Jakob on 30 June, 2006 - 21:51.My Blog | CSS | Human-Computer Interaction | Usability | Web Design | XHTML

So called web standards-compliant coding using XHTML and CSS is being touted as the way of the future for web design and more and more people adopt the new methods and practices by the day. However CSS introduces a less than intuitive way to think about page layout which makes it hard to adopt and is also why web designers still use tables for layout. In this article I will cover some recent web design history, discuss why designers think with tables and why the CSS formatting model is not as intuitive as it should be.
