Multi-colored text is no invention of digital typography. In the 19th century already, there were some fonts that were divided into two or more cuts so that they can be printed above each other in different colors. The OpenType Format provides these so-called layer fonts for digital use as well. Especially for 3D and shadow effects, plenty of fonts that allow for multi-colored display are available. Thanks to these web fonts, you can even use the multi-colored texts in web design. What Exactly Are Layer Fonts? Layer fonts are special types of fonts for which the cuts are designed in a way that they can be overlapped. Often, decorative elements like shadows, contours or three-dimensional pages can be combined this way. When you assign a color to each of the font layers, this creates flashy headings and striking texts. Drawing and desktop publishing programs like Illustrator and InDesign offer simple ways of using layer fonts. Later, I’ll explain how to use layer fonts in web design using CSS3. First, I’ll present some of the most beautiful and exciting multi-colored fonts that are available as web fonts.

On the "Oh Dear!" service's blog there's a recent post covering the use of queues in a Laravel application and how to size and scale them to most effectively use the resources you have. Laravel offers a convenient way to create asynchronous background tasks using its queues. We utilize those heavily at Oh Dear! for all our monitoring jobs and in this post we'll share some of our lessons learned and what we consider to be best practices. The post starts out with an introduction to queues and their handling in Laravel applications, pushing jobs into workers to be executed. While a simple single-worker queue can handle a decent amount of work, problems can arise as the work grows larger. He mentions splitting up the work as a potential solution and defines the differences between "fast" and "slow" jobs to act as a dividing line for the queues. He also makes the suggestion of single-purpose queues based on types and, finally, mixing in the idea of a better user experience through immediate feedback.
Complex user interfaces for websites or applications have to be well thought out and intuitive. Before it comes to actual design, it is a common thing to define the appearance and controls via mockups.

Once you’ve installed the app and registered an account for free, you can immediately get started with your first project. Choose which type of mockup you want to create. You can choose between smartphones, tablets, and desktop devices, as well as websites and whiteboards. Depending on your choice, you receive a different work interface that suits the chosen task best. Starting a New Project Next, decide on a style for the mockup. While the wireframe style uses geometrically reduced shapes, the sketch style comes with a handdrawn look. You can switch between the two styles whenever you want to. Choice Between Wireframe and Sketch Style Placing Classic Content and Control Elements Once your work […]
