What makes curly hair curly?

March 25, 2011 § 6 Comments

What makes curly hair curly? What makes glass transparent? Why can’t you say ‘Macbeth’ in a theater? Don’ t tell me that all these questions never crossed your mind, but you never quite managed to find the answer. Ialwayswondered is a cool website where Jarret Green tries to answer the questions that pop up in his curious mind.

A Ming cupcake

March 21, 2011 § 1 Comment

I love contrasts. Of color, of texture, of style. And a contrast of style is what first caught my eye in Ming Makes Cupcakes. That and my weak spot for cupcakes, that is. But back to the point: I just love the contrast between the luscious maximalism of the cupcakes and the severe minimalism of the layout. Oh the conflict, the tension!ming makes cupcakes

But I want to give (more) credit where credit is due. The recipes themselves are great, with some twists and surprises (flourless chocolate cupcakes anyone? Sour cream fig cupcakes? Port wine and cherry chocolate? Beet chocolate?). I plan to start trying them ASAP.

Oh, and a last note on usability: although every recipe (image & text) is an image, the blog has a text only version where you can read and copy/paste text from. Nothing to complain about.

Origami social icons

March 17, 2011 § 2 Comments

There is such a plethora of downloadable icons for blogs, websites and windows desktops, that I get really bored browsing through them. Plus, they all look so similar to me. But these little cuties caught my eye. Which is not surprising, since my love for origami is well documented. And what’s more, these are completely free, even in their vector .eps format. You can download them here.

A website named desire

March 7, 2011 § 1 Comment

If you, like us, have ever been involved in the fine business of website making you will sympathize with the poor creatures in a website named desire:

Long nights of wireframes overtake the IA lead Things go haywire when sysadmin moves servers. Tension between creatives and technical types Test Engineers Can't... Get. Enough. Coffee

A website named desire is a poster that documents the complex workflows behind a website project, created by the good people at MIX.
