This site showcases the (mostly) digital work of Andrew DiFiore from both Virtual Arts Studios and answerYES Interactive as well as random thoughts and experimental projects too volatile to be contained anywhere else.

    This month’s Cool Tool of the Month is a simple site called Placehold.it¬†created for web designers with one simple purpose: to create pixel perfect placeholder graphics used in site wireframes and layouts.

    To generate a placeholder graphic, simply enter the width and height of the placeholder after the site’s URL in the address bar. For example:

    http://placehold.it/600×480

    By default the placeholder is gray, but you can change this by specifying the hex value of a color (without the hashtag). As in:

    http://placehold.it/600×480/000033

    You can also change the text and specific that graphic format (e.g. gif, png, or jpeg).

    If your site is online for client review, you can actually use the Placehold.it URL in your code. Such as:

    <img src=”http://placehold.it/600×480/000033″>

    That’s it. So simple it might fit the meme single serving site (close but not quite). You’re the man now dog!

    The story of Easter is the story of God’s wonderful window of divine surprise. One of my favorite quotes of the holiday season.

    Yes, it is a maze. A while back, I created a series of holiday “maze” cards like this one and this one. They were sent only to family and friends along with a personalized greeting (removed). I’ve been asked by some readers not to share the solution of my mazes until after they have had a go at it. Apparently, even catching a glimpse can reveal too much so if you really need help, post a comment and I’ll send you the solution.
