Let's keep it short: Welcome to Strawberry Magazine :)
what did you do to change the font?
Redacted Font and snapx.io app to replace/override the CSS.
-> DN Wireframe
(sidenote: I am part of the snapX team)
So, I decided to check out this snapx.io thing and I am trying to target a specific div on the page and edit the CSS for that item. I don't see any easy way to do this....Are you telling me I have to highlight the div, memorize the name, and then manually type it into the CSS field?? Whhyyyyy?? Can't I just double click on it or right click and have it automatically populate the div name with opening and closing brackets in the CSS field.....It could be so much easier..
Hi Alex, thanks for your comment. The tool is still Work-In-Progress and therefore lacks some basic editing capabilities (the one you mentioned is one of them). I appreciate your honest feedback :)
For some reason this just looks wrong? I like how it's going 'out there' and trying to change the way online magazines are displayed. I would tell them to run this through user testing as well as do some accessibility testing on this before giving it the green light.
because if they did user testing they would realize how terrible most of it really is, haha
The article layout is super confusing on bigger screens with the title off to the right, the start of the article on the left and then a summary off below the title on the right. It really doesn't flow and feels very jumbled.
I also think the header navigation would probably benefit from using something headroom.js to keep their categories easily within reach on the homepage to avoid having to scroll all the way back up each time you want to explore.
That said, I love how Smashing work and how they push the boundaries with their own site and practice what they preach. Ditching WordPress, not having advertising and so on - there's much to admire about how they work.
Horrific. I thought it was an early April Fools joke. The red, the massive fonts, the comment section with the input box to the right, the heading of articles aligned bizarrely to the right. So confusing, don't know where to start.
The content width is too wide
I like it. Refreshing design. Provocative approach.
Not bad once you scroll past all the red
That red is too much.
I'm so turned off by the twisting icons everywhere and the entire thing is quite hard to read and digest. I'm unsure where to go first and what I'm supposed to read.
If I wanted to find something, how would I?
I can't really get used to reading an article on the far left, not right. Not sure if I will ever be..
If you take a look the earlier version and this, then this focuses on being very different from others. Unfortunately, it seems that at the moment, this would not work for a magazine.
The first view has more content, than the previous version, but at the same time it feels that it has a lot less content. You can not focus on one main thing. Everything takes your focus and you are lost.
There are other issues, like the Comment Form not following you, when you read the Comments.
Let us see what data they get and then we know if this is better or not.
damn! I cringed (natural reaction) upon seeing the site!
