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.

Interesting - a finalist in the competition to redesign Sweden’s banknotes. These weren’t chosen, but aren’t they so typically Swedish looking? Hehe.

New Logo for DC Comics. Pretty cool. What I like most about it is the explanation of why they used the folded over ‘D’ - it represents the duality of the characters. Clever observation! All their characters have this duality - Batman, Superman, Iron Man.

Bright Carrot Logo - interesting - this is the first graphic I’ve noticed that uses a ‘lightbulb’ that isn’t the old style incandescent light bulb. I was wonder the other day when we would begin to see this - because old style lightbulbs are no longer legal to sell in Europe, and from this year, here in South Africa as well, so it will be interesting to see if the new shape lamps begin to be used more in these types of graphics, or if the old style incandescent lamp remains more popular.
Living in the future now, folks!

16 Pixels: For Body Copy. Anything Less Is A Costly Mistake - Smashing Magazine | Smashing Magazine

Interesting article here, saying that 16 pixel body text is the way to go. That works out to 12 point, which when seen on your screen at arms-length away, is the same size visually as the text in an average book which you hold closer to your face.

What are your thoughts?

Family Crests

Just listened to a cool Stuff You Should Know podcast about family crests. Could be cool to make one as a personal project - because you’d find out a lot about your own personal history and values - you’d need to do a family motto, and the various elements in the crest all say something - the side supporters, the crown, and so forth.

Pretty interesting fun personal project idea! :-)
