Update Heisenberg to Foundation Sites 6

by

Last year, we open-sourced our internal WordPress starter theme, Heisenberg. It’s where we begin all of our WordPress custom theme projects and provides theme authors a starting point to build custom WordPress themes of their own. It’s based off of Automattic’s Underscores starter WordPress theme and Zurb’s Foundation for Sites. Recently, Zurb released Foundation for […]

What do you mean when you say ___? A Glossary of Terms

by

“What do you mean when you say ___?” Speaking with developers and development agencies can sound like a different language. When I start working on a new project with a new partner, my first order of business is to establish a mutually understood vocabulary so we can communicate as effectively as possible.

Wireframing in the Browser With WordPress and Foundation

by

Recently, we redesigned our Zeek Interactive site, giving it an updated look (thanks to Kiran Robertson at Lovejoy Design) using newer technology such as HTML5 and CSS3. One unique difference in our process was the wireframing component. Rather than using a wireframing software such as Balsamiq, InvisionApp or Photoshop, we decided to wireframe in the browser, which essentially means […]

While this does the job, PhoneGap does not deliver a […]

Zeek celebrates 20 years

by

Zeek Interactive launched on June 1, 1995 in Orange County as a the next great CD-ROM game company. And CD-ROM games died on June 2, 1995. (Google it. That’s the actual date. Not really.) We learned quickly to adapt with the times. We have been a Shockwave game company, a Flash developer, a kiosk developer, […]

Introducing Heisenberg, our starter theme for WordPress

by

You may have seen our fearless leader Steve Zehngut’s presentation at WordCamp Orange County last year about how we use Auttomatic’s Underscores and Zurb’s Foundation as the basis for the custom WordPress themes we produce. Since Steve’s WordCamp talk, we’ve continued to iterate our starter theme. We’ve packaged it together and released it on GitHub […]

Applications: Native, Web or Hybrid?

by

If you are like many business owners, all you want is an app that works. Discussing native, web or hybrid platforms for your applications may be a conversation that causes your stomach to churn. Yet, it doesn’t have to be that complicated. In general, a native app is one that is built for a specific […]
