Time… that’s the only thing that’s never enough, actually it’s one of those things that we lack permanently. The burden of time looms over each of us, and we’re making every effort we can to save every minute. We’ve got time management apps that help us squeeze spare minutes out of nowhere, but there is one thing that deeply rooted into our brains and it’s called “timelining”.

Let’s thank Mark Zuckerberg who made the timeline so popular. Now we are having these lines-of-time everywhere: websites, infographics, etc. Showing events in time has become a must-have point for good projects that strive for popularity and the viewer’s interest. It’s possible to timeline whatever you need: the updates of events, the changes that take place within the company, etc. Want to create your own timeline? Then try the following list of jQuery Timeline Plugins and add interactive timelines to your projects.

Actually, what we see is just what we see. Please don’t lapidate me, I need few sentences to explain.

For example, you are watching the sunset: it’s beautiful, it’s gorgeous, it’s marvelous, it’s magnificent (or it’s not – in case you’re indifferent). And what makes the process of the sun going down so impressive? I believe colors do. But stop for a sec, let’s take a look from the other side. Science affirms the thing is a human eye just differentiates the length of electromagnetic radiation, namely visible light. In fact, to get some tint we need to experience the whole process: photons, which are the quantum of light or any other forms of electromagnetic radiation, move within the reality, then the light receptors in our retina interact with this radiation, after that the signal is sent through nerves to the brain, the brain analyzes the received information and finally our subconscious emits personal associations which are taken for granted by the unsuspecting mind. Therefore, the color itself is more in our heads (I’m not even saying about the impression), though objectively it’s just a bunch of the elementary particles.

Quick observation to the topic: have you ever heard of an idea that people see different colors, but call them the same?

So, I hope now my statement is more understandable: what we see is just what we see.

And while “what” is totally the prerogative of design, “we” is already in psychology jurisdiction. Well, you see, finally it’s not so difficult to watch the solid ties between those two disciplines. As you could understood I would like to share some interesting information about this connection: psychological moments in design and design analysis in psychology. For that purpose I reviewed the most enthralling fresh articles regarding the subject.
