Custom HTML Markers with Google Maps

26Nov2014

This post was written by Lee Karolczak

Given the wealth of knowledge available on the Google Maps Javascript API it came as a surprise in our experience at Humaan that it was difficult to find information regarding one very important feature – Custom HTML Map Markers. I am sure the limited resources presently available for this feature would be plaguing plenty of designers and developers.

Animating with SVG

17Jul2014

This post was written by Dedy Lawidjaja

The digital space affords us many opportunities to push design beyond static presentation and incorporate delight through unique experiences and engagement. This is something we consider with all of our projects, not to mention in our own new website. One component in particular stands out based on the feedback we’ve received, and that’s the simple animation of our logo when being hovered with the mouse.

We had a lot of fun putting this together, and since we’ve received numerous questions on the construction, we thought we’d share our process.

Blown away.

We’ve been incredibly humbled by the amazing feedback and response to the launch of our new website recently.  We’d like to say a big thanks to all those who have sent us emails and tweets over the last few weeks, and to all of the blogs and gallery sites that have featured us.

In particular, Awwwards, The Best Designs, Site Inspire, CSS Design Awards, and Webcreme – sites which help form much of our own inspiration and include websites of the highest calibre in the industry.

Taking out Site of the Day and the Developer Award from arguably the most renowned website awards site, Awwwards, really tops it all off. A big thanks from all of us Humaans!

Humaans and the Web #6 – On the 8th day…

05Jun2014

This post was written by Paul Spencer

The day is finally here. You and your team have slaved over the latest website for months and your boss is nodding smugly as the QA gives the all clear. Everyone’s high fiving and the champagne cork is about to fly across the room to hit Greg in HR, but wait! Is that really the end?

The methodology in delivering an effective product that will meet the client’s objectives is the primary goal when building a web site, but often there’s no consideration to the above-and-beyond finishing touches that will set your work apart from others. Have you done anything unexpected of you to go the extra mile?

When we experience something that is unexpected or unanticipated, the reaction evoked is a sense of wonder, astonishment or amazement. Are there any small surprises built into the user experience while the user is navigating your project? Surprises not only satisfy the user, but also capture attention, keeping them on task. Surprises can be anything from ‘easter eggs’, pockets of text with personality and flair or maybe even a compliment.

Surprises and finishing touches are often referred to as ‘delighters’. Delighters are small satisfying points of difference that form a favourable and memorable impression on the user. We respond well to small, unexpected and playful pleasures, so before your project wraps take a few moments to think of what delighters are included.

Only then should you unwrap that gold foil and uncork. Look out Greg!
