Web design: analogous colors

Tutoring web design, color is a focus. The tutor mentions analogous colors.

One point of view about color imagines a “color wheel”. The wheel is divided into thirds, one for each of the primary colors red, yellow, and blue. Between the primaries are mixes:

An analogous color set is one that occupies no more than one continuous third of the color wheel. Therefore, pink to orange or purple to teal might be examples of analogous color sets.

Web design: the <blink> effect

Tutoring web design, you might be asked about legacy issues. The tutor brings up the blink effect.

Today I tried using the <blink> tag in both Chrome and Edge; for me, it worked in neither.

I don’t believe I ever used the blink effect in a published page, but I still wonder why it’s deprecated. If people didn’t like it, then surely they could have simply avoided using it?

Nowadays, blink is achieved by animation. It’s a rare case when accomplishing a specific effect has become more involved, rather than easier, as time has passed.

Web design: rule of thirds

Tutoring web design, you might get asked about some basics. The tutor mentions the rule of thirds.

Rule of thirds:
the idea that two-thirds of a line should be one style of content, then the remaining third, a different one.

Examples: two-thirds text, then one third image; two-thirds one color, then one different, etc.

One
Third.

CSS: quotes

Tutoring web design, there are always new features to discover. The tutor mentions the CSS quotes property.

Let’s imagine you aren’t satisfied, for whatever reason, with regular quotation marks. For example, instead of

“I love pink jeans!”

you want to print

I love pink jeans!

Well, you can set the quotes to the club icon by enclosing the text in a q element, then applying the quotes style:

<q style=”quotes:’\2663′ ‘\2663′”>text in quotes</q>

Then, you can achieve the quotation marks you’ve really wanted all along:

I love pink jeans!

Nifty, eh?

Lifestyle, CSS: colours: what is the colour ochre?

Colour discovery means constant self-tutoring. The tutor shares a find about ochre.

I’ve always thought ochre meant red; apparently, I thought wrong. It turns out that ochre is an orange color, leaning brown and yellow rather than red:

Web design: HTML colors: another off-white

Tutoring web design, the tutor has become interested in off-whites. Now: from ivory to a related one.

In my post from a couple of days ago I mention the color ivory – that it’s made of 100% (of possible) red and green, but only 94% blue.

What about 100% red, 94% green, and 100% blue? Here it is as a background:

Low-green version of ivory:)
