It's not a Fireworks-specific plugin, but something like Reflector might get you the mirroring/previewing functionality you are looking for (similar to LiveView for Mac). Reflector for Windows/Android

Since you are specifically looking for day/month/year, try looking at what some calendar applications use to see what type of visual language has already been established and works well. This type of thing shows up when I googled "Calendar icons": On the other hand, Google Calendar uses text ("Day" "Week" "Month" etc), which is something to consider.

If you're asking what kinds of techniques were used for that specific image, it could include: outer glows (the white glow around some elements) inner glows (the glow inside the controller) drop shadows (the shadows beneath the text) gradients (the arrows going from light to transparent) opacity (the entire thing has an opacity less than 100% an ...

The answer is simple as can be, yet a newbie might succumb to it: Hold down alt while dragging the line and curve points will appear.

If you're hiring for an Art Director position that means there will be other designers who will be managed by this employee. The Art Director rarely does the technical work but still needs to know about the process and how to get the most out of his team. Even if the Senior Designer will not work in the same workplace, he will still need to work in ...

I would try to ask questions that can pinpoint his skills and his critical thinking....Instead of "How long does it take you to complete a project?" I would ask some of the following Last three recent pieces of work he/she has completed or currently working on Describe how would you approach execution of a specific project [insert a scenario here] How well ...

The topics are good, but most of these questions are too narrow to be good interview questions. If it can be answered in one word, it's too narrow, it needs to spark a conversation: Instead of "how long did X take", try "Talk us through the process for X, from initial brief to completion". Then you'll learn how they handle projects, how they develop ...

You migh show him a few of your recent "jobs" (unless you are working on confidential stuff like upcoming-product-artwork) and let him critique the way they were presented or documented. You might also ask him how (detailed) he will assign jobs, if he is hired as "art director". Maybe he has got a template or a planning-tool that he likes using. I am ...

How long did you take to complete (insert one of his artwork)? You probably can't get much useful information out of a question like that. How long it takes to complete a project often has a lot to do with all the variables outside of one's control. In that (insert another of his artwork) you did, was it a solo effort or did someone else help you? ...

You can use Zeplin. It's an app that shares mockups right from Sketch or Photoshop, including all measures and color values. No extra effort from your side and your developer will thank you.

Others have pointed you in the right direction—look at other people's designs a lot. Take note of the subtle details and your mind will do the rest of the work. You will start "coming up" with your own designs. However, they won't be "original" in the sense you probably hope them to be. Design, and especially interface design, isn't about creating ...

Let's see... given your premises: fibersensing.com is a good site to draw inspiration from; client requirements are optional; teal is very bad indeed; white on a pink-to-orange fade is good; mouseovers the same color as the background are good; consistency ("looks like all of the others that use blue") is bad; looking "commercial" is bad. ...any answer ...

I agree with the other posters. If the company color makes your eyes hurt, just use it sparingly and emphasize other elements. Also, compare your company's site with others in the same line of work and ask yourself what is working for the competition that could be done better by you and your company?

Vincent's answer is right on the money. I would also advise you take a look at a lot of the trends in web design lately, specifically regarding the subtle use of vibrant color, and take some cues from them. Even better, you could use this SE page as a reference. Note the way the bright red and teal are used at the top of this page. They define the tone and ...

Any single colour can be worked into a working colour setting, even for a website. So, yes, they are right in stating that using their blue is good for brand recognition. A good idea might be to take the original #2DCCD3 and create less bright, saturated versions of it to use next to the base colour. You can create these shades using the HSB colour model. ...

UI design is a fascinating area and there's a ton to learn. First of all, welcome! Don't get daunted if things aren't 100% perfect from the get go, it's a constantly evolving field, and I think any UI designers will tell you it took at least 2 years before they were producing work they were really proud of. For me it was even longer. I'll break it down into ...

Where can I learn and improve my Photoshop skills and how can I start working on a concept? Like @plainclothes said, never focus on the tools. Mastering Photoshop will not make you a web designer. Just like mastering how to use an oven will not make you a chef. Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketch, etc. These tools help you create high-fidelity prototypes. ...
