Designing for Decoder Glasses, Print and Web

Michael Buchmiller, CSS-Tricks, Mar 01, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Every day the CSS-Tricks website has one or another nifty design trick on offer. I always read them, even if I don't have time to apply them or space to pass them on. And then's there's the occasional absolute gem, like today's. Michael Buchmiller, the Creative Manager at BlueHornet, shows us how to design a web page with a secret message encoded in it - with the decoding glasses built into the design (see here). Sure, it's just a yellow-blue colour trick, but the effect is great and I can only begin to imagine how many ways it could be used for educational content - x-ray glasses, where's Waldo, Let's Make a Deal, Night Vision, and more.
