Next sunday, 3th of april, a big Flemish cycling tour will visit our town here. That tour is called “De Ronde van Vlaanderen”, it’s a bit a “Tour de France” for Flanders. Big cycling superhero’s will be in this tour. The reason why i like this tour is because it’s a Flemish tour that passes really beautiful corners of Flanders. You can watch the complete route here on the website of Ronde van Vlaanderen.

Tjekkid, protecting kids cell phones

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 03/03/2011

Some months ago, i got the opportunity to design a web site for software to protect children’s cell phones.  Tjekkid (pronounced “Check It”), is software that protects children so they can’t send too many text messages, browse inappropriate web sites or call too much. The mobile software can be controlled by the parents.

Valentine animation with CSS3

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 03/02/2011

A few weeks ago, I finally had some time to read the green book “CSS3 for web designers” written by Dan Cederholm and published by A book apart (ISBN 978-0-9844425-2-2). The book explains what and how you can already implement CSS3 in websites starting today. I felt the urge to try some of Dan’s fantastic examples (the code is explained with a complete webpage example) and to experiment a bit with the code inside the book.

Posted by Benedikte Vanderweeën on 14/01/2011

A good thing about spending too much hours on the web looking for inspiration, is that you find historical resources that shows us manuscripts that are absolutely stunning to watch at.

Lately, i visited this new launched Belgian project: de bijbel van Anjou, an exhibition that showed a royal manuscript dated 1340 revealed. This bible is completely digitized and can be viewed online. This exhibition took place in Museum M in Leuven.
