’03 til infinity

The MVA Studio weblog—thoughts on design, creativity, business, marketing, teaching, writing and culture by J. Namdev Hardisty and Kimberlee Whaley.

Neat Vol. 1

Some interesting UI stuff—Namdev

5by5.tv has a button you can turn on so that links open in a new window. (I love this because I open everything in a new tab with the goal of making it take about 30 minutes for Firefox to start up.)


Top: The search field at apple.com when you load the page.
Bottom: The search field once you insert the cursor.


Top: The footer on the already excellently designed Daring Fireball.
Bottom: The Appearance settings on Daring Fireball where you can only change the font-size. I like that this sends the message that changing color or typeface is bullshit and the font-size is most likely the biggest culprit in terms of reading difficulty.
