How we ate our own dog food and used ONLY SVG on our website

May 03, 2018 ·  Thomas Yip · Success Stories · Web Design · Everything SVG

It all began when we have a small problem, we wanted a small icon on our Google signup button, everything looks perfect, except when we view our website on high resolution or retina displays, and began to see pixelation:

Google sign up button with pixelated G
Google sign up button with pixelated G

Why? For the very simple fact that we made the icon using a size of 16 x 16 pixels. When it’s shown on a high resolution displays, the icon is resized to more than 2 times its original, and therefore causing the pixelation.

Can’t we just use a 24 x 24 pixels icon? Sure, but what about out other graphics on our website? They will be blurry as well. Although we can always upload a higher resolution image to ensure it displays crisply on all screen sizes, then what about their file sizes? Will it slow down our site?

So, we returned to the drawing board, and began to list out what are the possible colors.

Talking about complex work

February 25, 2017 ·  Yi Qian · Success Stories · How to Vecta

Some teams work on things more complex stuffs than others, and to talk about it isn't any easier than the work itself.

To communicate such complicated concepts and unique scenarios, many teams often turn to technical writing and round-the-clock meetings. Unfortunately, most of these communication offer much less clarity than they claim to have.

In a time where complications are usually mistaken as productivity, we believe simplicity to be the holy grail for effective communication.
