Link Roundup

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any of my latest finds from t’internet so here’s a few of the better ones

Jewellboxing – these guys make some really kick ass CD / DVD cases. They seem a lot more solid than your average run of the mill jewelboxes and they come with printable inserts and templates too! For people making large quantities, they also do printing kits.

Web Application Form Design – An interesting article about creating forms that maximise usability and discusses the pro’s and cons of various different form layout methods.

Official UK Postcode specification – I’ve recently had to write a script to properly validate UK postcodes, this guide to the UK postal code specification proved invaluable while writing that script.

Top 80 Photoshop Text Effects – Yes, they can be tacky when used in the wrong place, but it’s handy to know how to do them, especially if you ever delve into the world of creative print work.

Input Draw – A flash / javscript combination to allow users to draw into a form and then have the information about what has been submited posted to your scripts (contains co-ords for all the points n stuff). Could have a multitude of uses, although I can’t really think of any at the moment!

CodePress – Finally a form input box capable of line numbers and syntax highlighting. Uses javascript but I can see it being really handy for use in CMS systems and things like that.

Well… that’s all for now, hope you find some of these links useful!
