This is a stack overflow question. Not graphic design. But to answer it, you need to use javascript. After the page renders, calculate the height of the viewport, then calculate the height of the content area. Then use javascript to adjust the layout as needed. I wouldn't recommend this, though. On the web, the footer is typically at the bottom of the ...

This is possible but a bit tricky. What you need is A html thst has 3 divs: <div id="page"> <div id="main"> <p>This is the contents on the page</p> </div> </div> <div id="footer"> <p>stuff</p> </div> Then the following css: html, body { height: 100%; margin: 0; padding: ...

There's a few approaches you could take. First, and my favourite solution, is to have the html have the same background color as the bottom of my footer, so the transition isn't that obvious. You could also use the vh unit, which corresponds to 1% of the height of the current viewport. It's not supported by all browsers or devices, but it does a decent job ...

You can try adding a thin stroke to a text in bold typeface (or a thick one to a thin typeface) could do the trick...Note that you should choose the color of the stroke wisely to suit the overall design. using stroke-only for bold or even regular typefaces (with the inside of the typeface transparent to reveal the background image) cutting the text ...

you could try adding a shape behind the text but in front of the image and adjust the opacity level on the shape until you are happy with the image visibility and the text legibility. hope this helps

I like kochumvk's answer for the sheer simplicity - because after all this is a maths problem. But if you're like me and don't like maths, you could go through the process I've outlined below. (I only know that Scribus has a distribute function from your question and this page, and I assume it works in a similar way as Illustrator.) In the top-left ...

Let's add to iconography the obvious integral typographic and color modulations. With the caution that integration adds further complexity! http://generatedcontent.org/post/21279324555/viewportunits. No doubt Matt West and Treehouse have something to this effect on the press as we write. Three layers of content signaling is not a quick fix, when properly ...

In the specific case of MailChimp they have made their framework available for public use here- http://ux.mailchimp.com/patterns/ You will also find nuggets of their design process in their blog articles and if you subscribe to their newsletter. They also warn that it isn't like Twitter Bootstrap and a lot of it has been tailored to have suited their needs. ...

Im on the fence drinking a soda about posting this as an answer but the answer I am going to provide you, I might make into a reference later on when others ask this similar question.. As you stated you're already in the design phase... If you followed a proper workflow (since you haven't mentioned IF you had a mockup, content evaluation, wireframe ...

thedigitalmonk! I am a web designer and developer and I think this is something individuals run into quite a bit. It's not always the same answer, so I think some screenshots would be helpful. However, I tend to add a sidebar. Otherwise the page looks off whether the content is centered or not. It looks out-of-balance especially when there are other ...

No, there is no universal ratio or size for margin and padding. What looks harmonious in design A might be quite peculiar in design B. Off-key elements can be intentional design choices and the intention of the designer. So anything goes. That said... The common idea is that dissonance distract. Therefore most designs require margins and paddings that go ...

I would expound on one of the previous answers in basing your design on Bootstrap templates - if you're time and budget conscious, you'll first select a technology (HTML/Wordpress/Drupal, etc) then a preexisting template for that technology and only afterwards work on branding the template instead of starting with creative and then looking for ways to ...

As a supplement / source for inspiration - I'd suggest following Jessica Hische's blog too (http://jessicahische.is). She's definitely one of top typography specialists out right now.

I would recommend you check out the GuideGuide plugin for Photoshop. It can create grids on the fly at your preferred amount with gutters and rows and the whole "nine yards". With something like Bootstrap, I always tell designers to not focus on how many grids there are. Even the width is relative. It can easily be customized with LESS variables (defining ...

I would suggest that your next step is not to move into Photoshop but instead start designing straight in your browser. There are many grid based CSS frameworks you can use for this. A few popular options are Foundation, Bootstrap and Skeleton. Alternatively you can always create your own. Foundation, Bootstrap and Skeleton all use variations on a 12 ...

The general rule for my work is to start with a standardised grid (e.g. 960gs) and split them into meaningful column counts, usually either 12 or 24. By having a fixed grid to begin with, it allows for a standard view, but knowing your column count allows for you to use percentage values for your widths, when you begin to write the markup, for ease of ...

No - If it LOOKS right, it IS right. You are the designer, rules are there to be broken :-) If nobody played about, everything would look the same.

No, this is quite dependent on what you're trying to accomplish. Personally I try to remain with a minimum of 5px padding and 10px margin. But again its down to how you want the page to look. Sometimes padding will do the job of the margin if the background-color is to touch the neighboring element.. ..where-as the margin would push the two ...

The simplest way in my opinion is simple - underline the link! Since older days when links were invented, they were all underlined and easy to recognise. Underlining was the simplest, most obvious, unambiguous way of displaying links. Then this new trend came in and, for some reason, sites started removing the underlines. Maybe because they were perceived ...
