Tips: Menghindari Ranjau Paku

Share More

Berbicara mengenai ranjau paku, gw yang memang pemula dalam mengendarai motor ini cukup punya banyak pengalaman (yg tidak bisa dibanggakan tentunya 😛 ) – Rekor “terbaik” ialah bocornya ban karena paku sebanyak 4 kali dalam sebulan di tempat yang berbeda. Pertama kena di rawa sari dekat kolam renang Arcici, pulang2 berenang sudah harus dorong motor lumayan jauh cari tukang tambal ban (soalnya tukang tambal ban terdekat orangnya lagi ga ada). Kedua kalinya di kemang pulang meeting dari Club Azur, begitu keluar langsung olang oleng ban udah bocor. Ketiga kena di Kelapa Gading Boulevard, akhirnya gw ganti ban dalem (untung bawa cadangan). Keempat yang paling barusan di jalan belakang ITC cempaka mas abis pulang ngapel. Ini paling bahaya karena kebetulan lagi jalan agak cepet. Hiks, ban dalem baru ane akhirnya langsung kena tambalan juga.

Intinya! Jangan terlalu percaya tips gw, karena terbukti gw sendiri belum bisa mengatasinya 😆 Tapi tetep gw akan share beberapa hal yg gw udah pelajari tentang ranjau paku nih (^_^) semoga bermanfaat.

Web Design Tips for Graphic Designer (part 2)

Back to Starting Point (^_^)

  1. Use browser UI

    Best website design strategy is to print screen your browser in targeted resolution, and paste it in your photoshop. Do all the design above this layer. This will help you with good perspective of your design in a browser

  2. Begin with the end in Mind (It’s important to know your target before you start working)

    • The one thing you should always keep in mind is you will cut your design to pieces in the Final step

    • Why? because in website design, image total size and quantity is very important (one big image will seems to load longer than if we cut it into 3 smaller images, because with 3 images the browser will show the image one by one, and it’ll be faster then having to wait one big image fully downloaded)

    • Use repeated pattern. If you can, try to have repeated pattern for background. You can have a smaller cut and set it as background image (it could be repeated horizontally, vertically or both). It will save total image size compare to having the whole image

    • However, if you’re very sure that your targeted website visitors won’t have any problem such as low bandwidth (low internet speed), skip this step
