@fdanielsen Jeg endte opp med Knappogue Castle 16 og Dunville's PX cask.“Alternative facts aren’t facts, they’re falsehoods.“ Painful. Like watching a kindergartener getting schooled. https://t.co/nYPdOv6CQ0

Your products are sufficiently user-friendly only if they work well with other products not made by you.

Of each particular design element, ask: Does it bring the user closer to his goals and you to yours? If the answer is no, ditch it.

@ruter Takk for det. Foreslår også at merking skjer 1 dag i forveien. Ikke alle er oppmerksom på slike arrangementer på forhånd. @ruter Retning Skøyen. Et titall mennesker sto på holdeplassen, og sanntidssystemet fungerte som vanlig.

Når vi lar selvbestaltede "forskere" (les: tullinger) slippe til i mediene på lik linje med ordentlige forskere er det noe galt et sted.

@designjuju …too big, and it looks amateurish, too small, and it works poorly with the illustrations. @designjuju The blocks look better close up because of the textures, but I think they need to be careful about the size @designjuju Hmm…I thought the design was a bit too blocky on its own, but it's nice combined with other illustrations

@Cennydd Fair enough. But I remember his work in The Face back in the day. worked perfectly. Ugly maybe, but so were the times. @Cennydd There is - and was - a lot to dislike. But he captured the spirit of a decade and broke new ground. That makes him great.There is nothing that is not fantastic about Miriam Margolyes. #grahamnorton

Design isn't measured by “Is the headline kerned well enough?” Design is measured by “Does the reader see the significance of this story?"
