A few days ago I tried to draw some snowflakes. Here they are:

And a bit later, Ani made me a present — a snowflake of her own:

Her snowflake is much more beautiful! :)

I’ve been experimenting a long time ago with aqua style buttons in Adobe Fireworks and today I wanted to make them look like half-transparent red/blue pills from the Matrix! ;)

The font is Nasalization and is free.

Inspired by Ulrik Jensen, and created for pure fun using Fireworks tools and blending modes (make sure to click the images to see the full-size versions — up to 1060x880px!).

Because I realize my logo for the non-existing company “Red Star” (should not be confused with Red Star Line) looks too similar to Ulrik’s work, I asked permission to publish my own version, and Ulrik was kind enough to allow me to do so! :)

The second version of the Red Star Company logo uses part of a photograph which is in the Public Domain (it shows the steamer Lapland, by Red Star Line).

(EDIT @ 21:05) A third variant, based on some valuable feedback from Ani:

Target only IE8, IE7 and IE6 in the CSS code

November 5th, 2010 @ 17:16

It’s not a very good idea to “hack” the CSS code in such a way so that certain rules will be seen by specific browsers only — usually, one or more than one version of Internet Explorer (IE Conditional Comments are a much better option, in most of the cases).

But sometimes this is the easiest (or the only) way to deal with the situation — let’s suppose, for example, that you don’t have access to the HTML but to the CSS files only. In this case, the following 4 lines of code might be useful:


body {
color: red; /* all browsers will see this */
color : green\9; /* IE8 and below */
*color : yellow; /* IE7 and below */
_color : orange; /* IE6 */
}

As you can see, it’s easy to write rules that will be “seen” only by IE8, IE7 or IE6, or a combination of these three IE versions. And let’s hope IE9 will need no hacks! ;)
