Years ago, I was learning about Tiles & Struts as we were transitioning to it from a very old system (Vignette). We got to tweak stuff, as well as create from the ground up. With this project, I recall using Blueprint CSS for the first time in a production stage. But that’s for another story, for another time.
Pitchfork Music Festival iPhone App
Nice Design on this iPhone App for Pitchfork Music Festival 2011.
Though I wish there was a link to-the-top on the Info page. But overall, simple, readable and to the point. More screens below.
An Ode to UX Designers
One can go to the web and try to find a definition for User-Experience Design. They’ll find results such as this:
User experience (UX) is about how a person feels about using a product, system or service. User experience highlights the experiential, affective, meaningful and valuable aspects of human-computer interaction and product ownership, but it also includes a person’s perceptions of the practical aspects such as utility, ease of use and efficiency of the system. User experience is subjective in nature, because it is about an individual’s feelings and thoughts about the system. User experience is dynamic, because it changes over time as the circumstances change.
But sometimes, animations can do more. Here’s a couple by lyle on Vimeo.

Who Said Yahoo Doesn’t Share for Free?
Just last week, pre-Valentine’s Day, Yahoo! shows it love to the public by launching User Interface Library and Design Patterns Library. Not to mention, the crazy cats over at the Yahoo! UI department have started a blog as well. Dang, they seem to be grinding and sharing great tools with everyone. I like that. You may read more about interesting technology via Yahoo! Developer Network.
Special thanks goes out to Blingo.com, that I came across Peter Freitag’s blog entry about it. It’s just too bad I didn’t win anything =|
