👋 Oi, mga repapips, Brian Dys here! I love music, photography, and creative stuff like UX design and art. This is a place where I collect my thoughts and works. Apart all these, I’m Jaycelle’s better half and Bryce’s dad. 🥰
Currently, these are my default plugins whenever I would install WordPress:
- Limit Login Attempts
As I am looking for ways to concatenate CSS and JS files in the theme that I’m working on (Applicator), I tested several PHP scripts and WP plugins.
And the only thing simple enough to work is Better WordPress Minify.
This is just what we need for government websites in Philippines – web design standards:
Once and for all, stop thinking too much when you write. Pages and pages of ideas pass you by as you think too much. Write, just write.
Let this be a sketchpad wherein raw ideas – instead of getting drawn – get serialized into a whole that might make sense. To you, to me and anyone in between.
My name is Dys – the lead designer of DYS design studio. Our power is in designing user interfaces for the web.
In here you might find stuff about the design process, front-end development and WordPress. And some of the tools that I use to make things happen.
Please bear with me if everything in here is a work in progress, open to debate and unassuming & unapologetic at the same time.

UX Week, SF
Being here in SF opens up my mind towards wanting a higher goal for my career. Do I really want to be in a developed country? What’s the higher goal? Well it’s more of for myself really – to worry less about the mundane things that the government fails to take care of like infrastructure and other stuff. I can’t pinpoint exactly. It’s like I know that I’m most needed in my country but it’s true that it’s a long way to go. I want my family not to experience these hardships. I don’t know. I need to talk to my partner about this.
It is good news that Philippines ranks number 9 out of 142 countries in the Global Gender Gap Report 2014. This means that the gap between genders in many aspects of our economy is getting slimmer.
And what is it to us as a country?
People and their talents are two of the core drivers of sustainable, long-term economic growth. If half of these talents are underdeveloped or underutilized, the economy will never grow as it could. Multiple studies have shown that healthy and educated women are more likely to have healthier and more educated children, creating a positive, virtuous cycle for the broader population. Research also shows the benefits of gender equality in politics: when women are more involved in decision-making, they make different decisions—not necessarily better or worse—but decisions that reflect the needs of more members of society.~ Klaus Scheab – Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum
Structural Classes are classes that denote hierarchy in HTML tags particularly in
Example: Structure of a Component
Please note that
h denotes a heading tag that varies from 1 to 6 depending on the HTML 4 outline.
The Structural Classes in this example are the following:
accessible-name(heading or official name)
Maximum Number of Classes
While building the structure, we will put generic and specific class names into each area. The suggested maximum number of classes to add into a single
div is two (2).
The first class to be added is the generic class – which is basically, what the component is. The second class – if available – is the category it belongs to – which will become the specific class – this is usually inherited from its parent.
Example of Generic Class
In this example, we’ll use the Author Component.
The Author Component is part of an article byline wherein the name of the author is indicated (along with the date the article was published).
Name of component (generic class): Author
Category of component (specific class): Article Entry
Using this information, we can plot the classes into the structure.
<div class="comp author_comp article-entry-author_comp">
<div class="cr author_cr article-entry-author_cr">
<div class="ct author_ct article-entry-author_ct">
</div><!– article-entry-author_comp –>
This structure now features the following:
- a generic class (author_comp) which will be used in any instance of author in the HTML document
- specific class (article-entry-author_comp) which could be used to directly select the component (e.g., for use in CSS)
The objects inside
ct (content) could simply have their generic classes – just like with the heading tag which only has
accessible-name as its class.
