We had lots of great links floating around this week, which all made for some really great tips!

  • Colour Contrast Check: web-based app that allows you to test text and background colors quickly to determine contrast, specially when viewed by folks who trouble seeing colors, or when looking at color on a black and white screen.
  • Symbolset (which we love to use) released new icons this week! If you’re not familiar with Symbolset, it is a semantic web font that works on all browsers, or with anything that supports OpenType.
  • CreateJS: a set of libraries to help you build rich HTML5 experiences on the web. It includes Easel.js, Tween.js, Sound.js, Preload.js and Zoë.
  • Lastly, here’s an awesome talk on Destroy All Software from @garybernhardt. It’s called “WAT” and you should stop anything you’re doing and just watch it.
