I’m working on a web project that involves working with a larger team from Australia, and they’ve put together a variety of command-line tools to help us interact with GitHub. When you push code up, it checks it for standards, and chucks it back if there’s errors.

If there’s no errors, it rewards you with a random little bit of ASCII art like these, quite a cool little touch!

Awesome awesome product design: this guy has invented a landmine detonation tool that costs about $1150 less than the alternatives - just $50 each. Amazing, isn’t it?

A Sofa That Abstracts Rome’s Most Beautiful Park
Cool!
I’ve been there - the park at Villa Borghese in Rome is very nice - peaceful and ancient-feeling, with towering oversized trees, you don’t even hear the bustling city that surrounds it.
Excerpt:
"On his new Borghese sofa, a network of branches rises up the back to hold up three cushions in place. And like Schultz, the Frenchman found inspiration in nature, specifically the pine trees of Villa Borghese, the largest public park in Rome."The couch is an abstract landscape that can only be appreciated with a 360-degree view, making it one of those pieces of furniture that shouldn’t be arrested — i.e., shoved against a wall."In fact, doing so might constitute a crime."

WCA Website

I’m really happy with the way this site turned out!

onepartscissors:

WCA Workers Compensation Assistance approached One Part Scissors to develop a website that is modern, clean and stylish.

WCA offers assistance to companies dealing with the Compensation Commission on claims (Injury-on-Duty, etc). The time and expertise needed to deal with all the red tape of the government department means that companies are often paying too much and not claiming enough, and this is where WCA steps in and assists companies with the process.

The website is slick, clean, and minimal, with large, inviting black-and-white images taking center stage. The content of the website is contained in a semi-translucent turquoise band, with strong, bold typefaces.

The website is built on the Drupal content management system, allowing the client quick and easy access to keep the website up to date. The website is built on the latest Version 7 of Drupal, which has truly taken an already-excellent system to the next level.


The website also features a blog run by WCA, making use of Drupal’s built-in blogging capabilities.

Sections containing large amounts of document downloads are divided into manageable sections which are presented with an ‘accordion-style’ display, that allows the visitor to expand the sections they are interested in.

The website also features a distinct mobile theme so that it displays appropriately on the (increasingly-important) mobile devices like iPhones, iPads and other smartphones.

Visit the website at wcawca.co.za

Great interview with the designer in charge of the Tumblr Dashboard. Fascinating take on things. 

storyboard:


Peter Vidani on the Evolution of the Tumblr Dashboard

Ministry of Design senior minister Peter Vidani lays hands on every aspect of Tumblr’s visual and usage aesthetic. Initially contracted to work on theme creation, he came aboard full-time in 2009 and has steadily advanced his design philosophy of utility and simplicity. One of his primary, perpetual obsessions could be considered the real face of Tumblr: the Dashboard.
