Yesterday, I stumbled upon the site:
https://clrs.cc/
It has some really beautify colors to use in #HTML, #CSS, and #JavaScript.
I think its #colors look far better than the default color palette in HTML. I highly recommend using this project. #coding #webdev #design #CSS3 #HTML5

Apparently the designers of this remote control thought that #netflix is more important than the up cursor.
Whenever I want to move the cursor up, I hit this fucking Netflix button.

Besides this, my new TV also has a special Netflix Bouton on the remote. Do people only watch Netflix.?

Day 27: Coat of Arms Pencil Before Brush


My interpretation for the 27th word of Inktober 2019, 'Coat'. A custom design coat of arms.

Well, again.... Inktober is over, but here is the "Coat" entry. All I'll say is that I twisted the prompt word up and designed my very own coat of arms.

I'm proud that I'm from England in that these sorts of designs hail from our history and the history of Europe mostly. I think they were first created way back in the 1300's and used as proud symbols by individual families - mostly by royals or the aristocracy, but on the odd occasion, also by the poor too. They're kind of like our version of the totem pole in a weird sort of way, haha.

Loosely describing it, these designs would comprise of elements that make up the coat of arms. A shield was often used in the centre alongside two "supporters" that hold up the shield (the supporters were animals most of the time). In the centre of the shield, there would be a design with symbols that had meaning, and there would be a crest on top, usually a crown or knights helmet. The format of a coat of arms differed somewhat between countries - the format I describe was commonly used in Britain.

I struggled with the floral parts of the crest quite a bit, but overall, this was moderately easy and fun to do.

This entry was completed using black ink and Faber Castell PITT pens on A5 paper. Hope you enjoy as always... sorry it's so late...

Day 31: Ripe For The Pecking


My interpretation for the 31st and final word of Inktober 2019, 'Ripe'. Some crows perched on a couple of ripe pumpkins.

For this final entry, I wanted to incorporate another Halloween element as this day corresponds to the day of Halloween. I found out that Pumpkins can be ripe, and as I am contemplating whether or not to release another Birdmas challenge into the fold, I drew some crows to accompany them.

I took my time doing this but didn't apply any pressure.... heck, I failed Inktober anyway, so why the hell not? I practiced some colouring in and tried my best to get into it as I was applying a wash layer by layer. Hopefully it's effective enough.

...So will Birdmas exist this year? I'm not sure, but one thing is for sure - I want it to.

This entry was drawn using a black fineliner and Inktense on A5 paper.

That's it! Finally this hell is over! I never thought I'd ever say this about Inktober, but this year's Inktober has been more of a chore than a pleasure. My decreased motivation, mixed with the horror of the prompt words made this a nightmare! I got a few good things out of it, but not much more than that. Add that to the fact that I failed this year to keep to constraints, and that's even more frustration. In any case... thanks so much to those that followed this. Here's hoping my next project isn't so uncomfortable. Cheers all!

Day 22: Haunted Shelf


My interpretation for the 22nd word of Inktober 2019, 'Ghost'. A ghost floating in front of an old bookshelf.

Hmm... I think I was expecting more of this, but then again, I'm not disappointed with this entry either - it's pretty alright again. My aim was to use Inktense as a strong saturated base, for which to use diluted white ink on top to create the illusion of a ghost that you can see through.

That's where the bookshelf comes in, since there are many irregularly sized shapes and colours, the see-through "ghosting" effect would be more successful, coupled with the fact that things like libraries and posh haunted houses, both of which contain bookshelves, can be the perfect setting for a ghostly atmosphere.

I'd say where I went slightly wrong is with the overall opacity of the white ink. I just wish it was slightly more weaker than it is to get that convincing illusion.

I'll add a side note, that I'm very thankful for at least having a DECENT AND RELEVANT prompt word!! Thank you!!!

This was completed using many different inks on A5 paper. Expecting more wacky unprofessionalism? You were...? Great! The tooth fairy doesn't exist, you fools! There you go! 😂😜🤟

The false dichotomy of Worse Is Better vs. The Right Thing


I'll assume you know about the titular debate, if not here's a decent analysis. In this post I want to go further and show that both approaches are wrong. None of this should sound original to those who know design but unfortunately few in the developer community do.

Any kind of engineering is ultimately about people, their quirks and limitations. The Worse Is Better side understands the limitations of developers and correctly notes that complex products often don't ship at all because their developers run out of time and money before the first usable version sees the light of the day. Also given the iterative nature of design it makes sense to start small and make incremental advances so that potential users can stay in the loop and provide feedback.

The Right Thing side understands the limitations of end users and deservedly criticizes the WIB side for producing software with user-hostile UX. Because the opensource culture is heavily influenced by Unix the WIB approach permeates it to a large degree. However, at this point the mountain of evidence clearly outweighs whatever arguments the WIB side can offer. For example, the essay that sparkled the debate mentions the original Unix approach to handling interrupted system calls -- that approach has since been fixed virtually everywhere because it makes system call handling onerous. Or here now-well-known design expert Don Norman argues that command line experience in Unix is 'horrid'. That article is from 1981, a few years after Unix was released into the wild. Then there's The Unix-Haters Handbook from 1994 that describes something similar. And finally you can look at modern reports of companies getting pwned because some admin misconfigured an internet-facing server. The WIB side will say that, well, they should've known better, they should've read the manual, but I hope you can see the pattern. Git has a similar story: lots of cowboys ready to jump to its defense but also lots of pain and fucked up repos, and even some analysis of what exactly is wrong with Git's architecture and UI.

Like I said before, engineering is ultimately about people and here we have two sides: developers and users. Therefore the correct approach is to consider them both. To some extent this is what MVP is about but, as this article argues, in practice it's often interpreted as producing half-assed products for the sole purpose of getting feedback. The article calls the holistic approach SLC (Simple, Lovable, Complete) meaning that every iteration should be a complete product. This idea that even at 0.0.1 you're building a complete product is quite important. If you are a perfectionist, like myself, this is where to redirect your perfectionism -- at finding the most minimal but complete design at every iteration. When it comes to 'lovable', function-over-form minimalist designs often look attractive and age well, so even if you aren't good at aesthetics you can still do OK if you just keep it simple. Engineering is essentially an art of finding the sweet spot where a product has a high degree of design integrity and a simple mental model for its users but is also approachable for its developers.

Dieter Rams designed products to last a lifetime — and he's horrified by how we throw things away

For more than 50 years, Rams made an indelible mark on product design, predominantly at the German electronics company Braun, with a focus on function over form and products that would last a lifetime.The effects of his influence are extraordinary — a legacy that transformed the nature of consumer products and, some would argue, defined the concept of good design.
