  • Posted to Show DN: A Very Selfy Christmas - My 2014 Christmas Card/Maximum 3D holiday selfy experience, Dec 26, 2014

    I just moved to London from SF, and thought it would be a funny way for friends of mine to take selfys with me.

    Make sure to view on a desktop with a webcam. Not mobile-friendly (originally planned to support it but wooow, did this take to long to make).

    Italic fonts in a typeface family take a more handwritten-like approach to the letter forms. Characters such as the a, which is typically double-storied are changed to look like their written figures. More on this here:

    Wake up at 8:00, and will occasionally make some (non-caffeinated) chamomile tea.

    Oh my god yes this is perfect. Every time design assets for this game are posted here I get more and more respect for this team.

    I would argue anything less than support in 90% of users browsers is poor. I don't use rem's for anything yet as they are only at ~90% supported.

    There were a lot of gems like this on Adobe's website before they refreshed the site recently. Lot's of product pages for relics that went by the wayside in acquisitions.

    I've been planning a San Francisco >> London move, and switching back to all the US government websites for legal research just makes me depressed. Makes me proud to be British.

    Hey Mahdi, fuck all the haters in this thread.

    I don't know when Designer News turned into a place to make fun of each other. I have my job today because I gave myself stupid projects like this, and taught myself JavaScript doing it.

    All power to you dude. Keep up the good work.

    I personally think this is hilarious, and all un-responsive websites should have this.
