Or Designoper. I’m not sure.
What I know for sure is that when I’m doing a screendesign and have a good Idea I always wonder “Will that be too much work for the developer?”. I think I shouldn’t worry too much about that and create the most usable design I can.
That’s one of the advantages of designers who don’t code. It seems I’m coding the page in my head while designing it.
Lunch menus are a great way to limit your choices. Just force yourself to order something from it. Don’t even look at the other meals they have and don’t think about your choice too much.
Your lunch will be shorter and better.
As a kid I played Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 like it was going out of style. I’m listening to its soundtrack right now and it’s funny that I still know the lyrics for almost all the songs—like Bad Religion’s “You” or “Out with the old” by Alleylife. At that time, I didn’t even know all the bands. I guess those games formed my taste of music for the rest of my life.
Songs can be wonderful bridges to our past. We should use them more often. They remember us of a time that seemed better and simpler. Of course we remember mostly the good stuff—but that’s fine with me.
Recently I ran across a PDF that’s been presented in a way that makes me doubt that extraterrestrial lifeforms would find intelligent life on earth.
I’m talking about the page–flip–effect. You actually have to grab a corner of the page and drag to the left to get to the next one. You know, like you have to do with a real book, only worse.
It sure is a good programming experiment and exercise, but if you want your content to be read, why make it harder? People know how to scroll.
The only worse thing would be a smartphone that makes you use a digital rotary dialplate.
(Oh I see this already has been done, good that it is only an app)
