Hesse Antiqua – Typeface release at 100 years

Book with Hesse Antique font
Gudrun Zapf von Hesse, born January 2 in 1918, is a woman of many talents: She would emphasize that she is a trained bookbinder first, but she was also active as a lettering artist, she has produced work in the graphic arts – and she is a typeface designer. As she turns 100 on this day, her first alphabet design is finally released after 70 years. Ferdinand Ulrich tells the story of its origin and recent digitization.

Web Design

CSS Alignment Cheatsheet

Alignment elements with CSS
Aligning things in CSS has been a common source of frustration, fun and even memes for a long time. However CSS evolves quickly and new specifications are written and implemented in browsers all the time.
As a result, aligning things in CSS today isn’t quite what it used to be. We now have to take more modern ways to do CSS layout into account, like Flexbox and Grid among other things.

VizTable: Fancy tables!

Spanish football league
Do not miss these curious tables with soccer league rankings. But what makes them special is that they are based on the real distance between each of the teams according to their score. Another interesting way to see how your team is positioned in the ranking!

Awesome transitions in this website!

Dizzy transition
Sometimes we have brought to SiloMag some effects of transitions on websites that have seemed curious or have surprised us. And this time it is not for less. But first, a recommendation: do not scroll too fast, because you can get dizzy!

WordPress

Is Gutenberg the End or a New Beginning for WordPress?

Gutenberg in WordPress
I’ve been loosely following the noise and #wpdrama surrounding Gutenberg for as long as it has been around and honestly for the most part I’ve had negative feelings around it (I don’t like change at the best of times). However, I recently dived in and tried it out and you will never guess what happened next!

Create Stunning Responsive Tables In WordPress With wpDataTables

wptables interface
Creating tables in WordPress is easy. There are traditional ways to add tables to WordPress with code, but by far the most convenient way to build a table (or chart) is with the wpDataTables WordPress plugin. It makes it extremely easy to import your table from various external sources, style it to your liking and add it to your website.
