    This site crashed my computer. (My i7, 32GB RAM, with a 1080).

    0/10, see me after class.

  • Posted to Bold fonts in iOS 10, Jun 13, 2016

    To me, tvOS and this new bold typography represent a new direction for iOS away from iOS 7’s core look.

    Objects are more physical, bright colors are being moved from UI components to the type itself, and clearer hierarchy.

    I do think that the extrabold type is an overcorrection, however. Just like iOS 7 was, in many ways. :P

    But be prepared for this to be rolled out to more apps in the upcoming months/years.

    I’m confused… in the end, did you use the icon fonts, or did you use SVG? The title makes me think one thing, but the post says something else…

    … also, if you prefer icon fonts, CSS Tricks dived into this subject for you: https://css-tricks.com/icon-fonts-vs-svg/

    I agree with you on trying to reclaim it as a progress site. Good on you!

    Glad they are changing things, though the new logo still has that icon… which I find unsettling.

    I think it’s the chunky curve with the little ticks on the side, but the main “wave” still has a thin, thin, thin white stroke.

    Aside from that, the logotype is much better.

    Color-wise, the chunky type in scarlet comes across as a little Soviet Russia, but no complaints about the red.

    The design is clever. The hover state that fills with your items is cool. As I “reach” toward it with my mouse (possibly showing interest) it fills with real-world items… which makes me more interested in what it could do for me.

    Only some of these hover states do that, however, so I hope that they add that effect for the rest.

    Well done.

    First thought: I would enjoy using this concept on OS X.

    Second thought: I would really enjoy using this concept on iOS even more.

    Well done.

    The old one was no beauty, but the new one reads as big-wall-o-text.

    The decisions are all sound… it just needs way more space and even dividers. With that much text, typography alone cannot create structure.

  • Posted to Site Design: How much is your spare time worth?, Dec 07, 2015

    Okay, the design itself is clever (very smooth and well illustrated, too).

    The real win here is the idea. Using a quiz-app to figure out how much one values spare time, and then using that to sell services to save time?

    A simple and well done campaign.
