I'll be glad for the feedback or improvement tips in the comments below. Thanks
Cool project! The golden ratio isn't actually all that helpful though.
I'm not sure this article provides a lot of proof to your point. The author shows images with the stereotypical 'golden ratio' overlay, declares them 'FAKE!', and then finds a few designers who don't use it.
The golden ratio, like many ratios, is useful; the mistake is in thinking that it's a "silver bullet," to borrow from the author.
And as long as we're referencing our sources, here's mine: https://goo.gl/ssPNyQ
This is great! I recommend offering all types of ratios (Like type-scale) instead of just the Golden Ratio.
The Golden Ratio is GREAT to design for marketing sites and where space isn't as important but for product design, smaller ratios are needed because of the lack of space. So stoked to see other designers thinking about this stuff though.
Interesting. I the golden ratio to design a logo for Context:
I also wrote abut it here, but I'm not sure if it actually made the symbol better or not. I just like the Fibonacci series.
Also your calculation seems to have a ton of rounding error. When I type in 5 as my base with an iteration of 5 I get:
I don't think it makes any design better or worse, it just provides a ratio, which is good in my opinion.
People do not think about golden ratio as some magic form for your designs. It is only ratio an it may guide you to better results...
Anways, cool tool :)
Good stuff :)
I'd be interested to see some sites designed using the ratio to see if they actually look any different to a normal site.
Nice thanks for sharing. Have you seen this presentation? Really made me think – "Why aren't I doing more with my designs???" https://vimeo.com/181110882
