Fixed Navigation Menus

I have been doing some more research on navigation bars and have some great examples of FIXED Navigation Menus. These either hover or are always present at the top, bottom or side or wait off screen. It is so cool! Zac Rutherford writes about this for speckyboy design magazine. See his article online – 30 Fantastic Examples of Fixed Navigation Menus in website design.

Also interesting is the website CSSDeck I love how they have a pop out window so you can see the code.

Navigation Bars

Bought the newest version of Dreamweave, spent about an house learning how to configure a spry navigation bar using .css only to find out that Dreamweaver has decided not to support spry menus anymore. WTF?!?

So on Adobe’s forum spry-menu-bar-widget page, I find a link to a cool article I want to read more about later. 10-responsive-navigation-solutions-and-tutorials

So far my favorite is: http://users.tpg.com.au/j_birch/plugins/superfish/#sample1

New software to learn and lessons to plan

I visited 3 cool websites today that I want to share.
The first is the Savvy Intern’s post on what new software you should know. Obviously I am not an intern, but I found the article well written and a friendly reminder that I need to keep my skills updated.
The second website was the blog – The Blooming Palette. It is filled with cool lesson plans and nice wayst to pitch them to your students. I like how she goes into depth and introduces some of the conceptual things we need to think about when making an artwork.
Last is Randleman High School’s website and a very cool lesson on resist watercolor painting using rubber cement. Now if only I had gallons of the stuff I would do that too!
