New UI/UX Design Tools

We've got some great new assets for web design!

Our reach is ever increasing, and we've got some great new tools for design. The UIKit framework, which piggybacks off Bootstrap, is getting even better. From fluid, "flex" grids to nifty new javascript and CSS tech, we've got more tools than ever before.

Switcher

The core switcher functionality gives us a great tool for swapping out elements, graphics, or content. The same triggering that we've used for a decade to swap out slideshows or tabbed content, except it's free from widgets or modules. We can swap anything. Why is that exciting? Take a look at this site we have in production here. Normally, this could only be accomplished with some very serious javascript, or flash if we went the old way. It would be slow, and have a giant footprint, weighing down the site quite a bit. Ours is pure html and css, and when compiled into LESS..it's lightning and feather-light weight.

ScrollSpy Animations

This is a CSS class that's triggered when an element enters the viewport (when you first start to see it in your screen). It's most commonly used with animations, but it can be used for any CSS class - which can get really exciting, depending on how creatively we use it.

We’re headed to #LasVegas and bringing some of our Silicon Valley tech to the great state of Nevada. I wonder how many small businesses are powered by #wordpress or #joomla in Vegas alone?

During the pandemic, as our clients businesses and people all across America began suffering, we dedicated just under $1MM in billable hours to lead the Marketing & Digital Branding of a high profile NDA client that was working to help everyday people and businesses across the nation. It was an incredible honor to be of service and leverage our wealth of skills, knowledge and resources to help real people. Without a single dollar spent, we reached 40MM people and our content was viewed by about 125k people a day. Our conversion rate was over 80% - and we’re proud to say we helped businesses and people across the nation. We can’t wait to use what we’ve learned for our clients: Those we haven’t met yet, and the loyal friends who’ve used our services since we began in 2008. Let’s get to work, America 🇺🇸 https://www.themicrotechs.org
