Graphic Designer & Website Designer Tips

As a website designer and graphic designer, I love sharing great tips and tools that make designing easier. As part of my website design services, I train clients on how to update their websites or to do their own SEO (search engine optimization), so I post many of these tips for my clients to train them how to use Wix and other tools to keep their website up-to-date. Keeping websites current is the best way to get found and to keep people coming back to your website.

Wix Websites: Hide elements on desktop, show on mobile

First, Make sure your Developer Tools are checked On (under Tools > Developer Tools > Check on: Properties Panel and Hidden Elements). See screenshot: Then, select the item you want to hide on desktop and show on mobile. Check on "Hidden on load": To hide items on Desktop, but then show them on mobile, insert this code into the Page Code panel (expand the Page Code at the bottom of your screen): Here is the code – just swap out "your_second_element's_ID" with the name of your element or group. import wixWindow from 'wix-window'; $w.onReady(function () { if(wixWindow.formFactor === "Mobile"){ $w("#your_first_element's_ID").show(); $w("#your_second_element's_ID").show(); } }); You can also see

Denver Graphic Designer Tip: Clean Google Maps

This is a handy tool to stylize Google Maps to have more or less labels, landmarks, and streets. You can also colorize and export the Google maps styles for use on websites. Check out this great free tool: mapstyle.withgoogle.com Below is an example of a map I simplified for a Denver graphic design client for a parking map that we're working on. I took screenshots of the map with my retina-display and seamed it together in Photoshop for our use.

Wix Designers Tip: Wix Video Backgrounds on Mobile

As a Wix Designer, I get this question a lot: "Why don't my videos play on mobile?" Video can be handled in one of two ways on Wix – you can use it as a video background, or you can embed videos using the Wix Video app, or embed YouTube or Vimeo or Facebook video players. Video backgrounds: These are great as they auto-play on desktop computers, giving the website movement, however if you use video backgrounds on Wix (or any website for that matter), they won’t play on mobile (videos also don’t have sound if used as a video background). In Wix, if you use background videos for strips or page backgrounds, it will just take the first Image Still of the video and display that on mobile. Embed

Red Hatch Chile Photography

As a Graphic Designer and Website Designer, I occasionally play around with photography for my client projects. Here is a photo I took in a lightbox of one of Sandiaseed.com's famous Red Hatch Chiles that I grew from their seed. I love working with Sandia Seed on their website design, blog posts, social media posts, seed packet design, and seed rack designs. What a cool woman-owned company! Patsy is a pleasure to work with, and I think she loves growing chiles even more than I do, and that's saying a lot! I will be posting more photos of her peppers this year, using the lightbox to really make them shine!
