2015 Trends to Replace Overused Designs

by Tessa on January 29, 2015

From huge and beautiful images to rich content, 2015 has plenty to offer to replace some overused designs and practices. Think of loading screens, stock photos, full screen photography, and image galleries with captions. These are overused to the point of overstaying their welcome. Boring. This year designers offer better typography, flat designs, and a lot more. Dramatic drop shows, logo clichés, and cursive text aren’t cool anymore. Some designs are actually regrettable (think of overlapping letters, self-portraits, and human logos). Background videos, hand-drawn illustrations, magical realism, and other techniques come to the rescue.

Your Guide to Painless Worry-Free Relocation

by Tessa on January 26, 2015

Relocating can be challenging and stressful but it shouldn’t be. Hoard packaging materials, sort through stuff, label, and box it up. Voila! Moving can be daunting and scary but it helps to create a packing timeline and keep track of your progress. Donate items you no longer need (teddy bears in your basement and your son is a ninth grader?) Ask your children and spouse what to trash. Obviously, moving is expensive, especially if you are moving across states. Selling stuff may help get your finances in check, and you can always buy new stuff once you move in. As you see, there are things to do for a smooth transition.

Major projects are underway in many Middle East countries, from solar power stations to terminals and air hubs. The government has been the largest employer for a long time but things are slowly changing. Investments in the region are growing and so is the number of technology deals. Experts explain these trends with healthy startup ecosystems and programs designed to encourage entrepreneurship and economic activity. The trade volume is also growing because of pro-democracy movements in the region. Corruption is still a concern and so are cultural factors. Still businesses are ready to invest in regions with a potential for accountability, transparency, and good economic outlook.

You will need emergency essentials – first aid kit, flashlight, water and food supply – to face unpredictable weather. Make sure your phone is programmed to receive wireless emergency alerts for extreme wind, dust wind, typhoon, tsunamis, and hurricane warnings. Severe weather may last several days or even weeks, accompanied by sleet, thick icing, snow, and very low temperatures. A disaster supply kit comes very handy. Find out if you live in an evacuation area as well. And keep a list of useful phone numbers that can save your life – the Red Cross, utility companies, and local hospitals. You should be prepared in case a natural disaster hits.

Remotely hosted ad serving, hyper-segmentation, and micro targeting have gained in popularity as advertisers pay close attention to the ways consumers consume media. Native advertising is also on the rise. Mobile phones, laptops, wearables, tablets, and iPhones have changed the ways in which we communicate, and brands explore new ways of reaching new audiences. Mobile native ads are an example in question. They are soon to become an industry standard. This format blends well with the company’s website or mobile app. From customized ads to promoted tweets and in-stream ads, the world of advertising is changing.

Ebola is a deadly disease that took thousands of lives, and experts predict that the dead toll could hit 20,000. But Africa is still an attractive place for investors, and it has been an attractive market for a long time. Why? Consumer spending grows at a rate of 4 percent a year. It is expected to double in 5 years. Africa is also the world’s second most-populated continent. It has seen considerable improvement in terms of socio-economic climate, macroeconomic stability, infrastructure, and income level. For businesses investing in Africa this means high return on investment. Ebola must go.
