  • Posted to Google Has a New Logo, in reply to Michael Aleo , Sep 02, 2015

    About that color distribution, it's kinda weird. The text logo had 2x blue and 2x red, a little yellow and even less green. So my brain has always associated google with blue/yellow/red, never green. But the colored G has loads more green in it making it less "googley".

  • Posted to Ask DN: Do you like new dribbble shots modals? , Jul 23, 2015

    It's weird that half the site is now a big modal window. I prefer small popup like modals. Personally I would avoid the modal window entirely. Just make the pictures in the "endless" feed bigger and there is less reason to click and dismiss a modal for more info. Maybe show the top comment as well.

  • Posted to Stop Using Gratuitous UI Animation, Jul 23, 2015

    The iphone trick is great, i switched settings right away. Most prefers a snappier UI instead of "long" animations. Although it might be a "superuser" thing.

    But when professional designers at apple with years of experience in interface design get it wrong, it's going to be a hard for 20 year old's at small webcompany's to do better. We can hope, but i think animation overkill will be here for a while.

    My personal pet peeve is the already stupid cookiebar the EU forced on websites, and then implemented with a 3 second jQuery collapse animation (first world problems i know ;).

    First IE edge now this, seems like all the new kids want a piece of the extension pie. I'm all for it, but maybe they should just agree on a general api instead of ripping each others code :)

    I get the mobile first thing, but this feels like mobile only. On a 27" monitor elements get blown up to such a scale that you lose overview. It makes a huge monitor feel too small.

    I had the same with google inbox, tried it for a few days but gmail works better for me on desktop.
