  • Posted to Can you see the 3d effect? *Update:Chromostereopsis*, May 23, 2017

    I don't see it personally, but it might be different on an iPhone.

    If I had to guess, though, the high simultaneous contrast between the pink and blue creates a lot of visual energy around the edges of the jellyfish. This effect helps it "pop-out." On top of that, the parallax displacement on the iPhone background (assuming you have it active) is probably emphasized due to how flat the background it. It makes the movement of the jellyfish more obvious because the background will appear static while the jellyfish is translating side to side.

    Hopefully that make sense. Just my hunch based on color theory and stuff. Would be interested in hearing everyone else's thoughts.

    By the looks of it, the twitter is owned by someone from here that's making a joke out of the actual CounselDrive guys. I'd assume this since—apparently—I'm one of the 4 people the account is following.

    :P

    I don't think this is the actual twitter of the CounselDrive company. The most recent tweet was 18hrs ago and when I shared this, I couldn't find them on any social media. If I had a guess, someone saw their website, the available twitter, and has started mocking them.

    This was brought to my attention by Zac Nielson on Twitter.

    CounselDrive has literally stolen the Stripe website. It's not even a subtle rip because they left some Stripe favicons in the head element!

    Stripe.com for reference.


    Update

    I've been doing some more research and there doesn't appear to be much of anything about this company. Their WHOis comes up private and there's no record of them on CrunchBase, AngelList or any media publications.

    If I had to guess, these guys ripped the design to try and have something flashy for initial customer acquisition so that they could raise capital. That said, rip-offs like this don't deserve the benefit of the doubt.

    Hopefully they take it down.

    Holy shit, you're right.

    I just assumed they were the "adolescent" because they both look to be aged between the Man/Woman and Boy/Girl emoji. Especially since Man emoji has a mustache and "adolescent" girl has her hair up, which—for whatever reason—changes my perception of age for both of them. Learn something new everyday.

    (Although—I think they should embrace the "adolescent" model. Makes more sense than "Blonde Person.")

    While were talking about emoji...

    WTF APPLE

    ...why do the adolescent emoji all have blonde hair (Male & Female) no matter the skin tone? None of the other emoji do this. Seems much more offensive than default yellow clappy hands.

    Plus, the inconsistency drives me nuts. :^)

    I agree—seeing POC emoji usage would be a nice addition.

    It also doesn't help that he polled his audience, which any statistician will tell you skews the results.

    I'm all for being more inclusive and hope my designs don't leave people out, but I feel like this post is making a big deal out of only assumptions.

    Is this a legitimate argument that using the default emoji color is exclusive of certain audiences because a 134 person pool of "white people" typically use it?

    That's a bit over the top, right?
