Creating your own meme generator

Almost every time a new meme pops up in my Twitter feed, I think of a witty version to create. I’m not alone in this. Memes are often a way to acknowledge a shared experience or idea. In a variation of the “Is this a pigeon” meme that has been making the rounds online, a designer Daryl Ginn joked about the elementary nature of most applications that say they use artificial intelligence. pic.twitter.com/nAHki0YFyV — Daryl Ginn (@darylginn) May 16, 2018 Several people replied to his tweet saying something along the lines of “replace this with this.” Daryl’s version got...

Platforms like imgFlip exist to make meme generations fast and easy. However, there is only so much customization they can allow. For many memes, creating new versions can only be done by people with Photoshop knowledge. But it doesn’t have to be so! For some memes that require more than Impact for the font text on an image, a meme generator can be created using the HTML Canvas API. In this tutorial, we’re going to make a generator for the #saltbae meme. But first… Let’s look at some fun interactive meme examples! The website pablo.life allows you to create your own Kanye West TLOP album cover by changing the text and image. This is one of my favorites: The digital agency R/GA created the...

More Unicode Patterns

Creating is the most intense excitement one can come to know. —Anni Albers, On Designing I recently wrote a post — that was shared here on CSS-Tricks — where I looked at ways to use Unicode characters to create interesting (and random) patterns. Since then, I’ve continued to seek new characters to build new patterns. I even borrowed a book about Unicode from a local library. (That’s a really thick book, by the way.)

Getting Started With Firebase ML Kit for Android

Thanks to TensorFlow Mobile and TensorFlow Lite, embedding and using deep models inside Android applications has become very easy. However, designing and training the models still requires a lot of skill, time, and effort, not to mention computing power. For this reason, most casual developers are unenthusiastic about adding machine-learning capabilities to their apps. With Firebase ML Kit, Google hopes to change that. Firebase ML Kit is a library that allows you to effortlessly, and with minimal code, use a variety of highly accurate, pre-trained deep models in your Android apps. Most of the models it offers are available...

Smashing Book 6 Excerpt: Bringing Personality Back To The Web Smashing Book 6 Excerpt: Bringing Personality Back To The Web Vitaly Friedman 2018-06-14T14:40:27+02:00 2018-06-14T18:32:54+00:00 Generic web layouts have become somewhat of a misnomer in conversations circling around web design these days. We’re bored and slightly annoyed by how predictable and uninspired most web experiences have become. Not without reason, though. Every single landing page seems to be a twin of pretty much every other web page. In the header, a compelling hero image with a short main heading is followed by a lengthier subheading. Beneath them, uniform blocks of...
