Be nice. Or else.
Probably just my crappy home connection. Seems fine now although the 9mb size is still a bit excessive.
This is definitely a useful observation and definition of a design problem - and I think ultimately it boils down to lazy and unconsidered design in most cases.
I remember Andy Clarke raising the exact same points in one his blog posts from 2012 so looks like we're continuing to be a bit lazy when it comes to visual hierarchy
Tidy enough for sure but 9mb for the homepage and for me in the UK it took more than 45 seconds to load.
When your site looks this basic, basic optimisation should be a pretty fundamental part of your build.
I'm sure someone smarter than me will outline why this, like the last version of his site, is a work of genius and not just a weird 90's frames style layout but I don't "get it" in design terms.
What an oddly specific user need to fill!
Should designers comedy?
Your reply seems really angry but I can't figure out why.
It looks like they just grabbed Twitter and Facebook's wireframes, added their own drop shadows and deployed.
The worst thing is that people won't be able to tell if an entirely fucked up EO is real or generated from this.
