Here at Gridwork we are beginning to talk a lot about the weather. Although many of us are still deep in the brunt of winter, we'd like to happily remind you that there will be more daylight in 10 days aaaand spring begins in 21 days. Soon we will be writing these newsletters under an umbrella on a sun drenched day. Until then, let's set our desktop photo to someplace on Kauai, do our best hula and take a work break to practice summertime visualizations. And after that’s all said and done, check out the links below.
Make and do.
Oh, perfectionism. It can be stunting. Unfortunately, we can think of a few examples when work has come to a halt because, almost unconsciously, we get paralyzed by the pursuit of perfection, especially in our personal projects. (Try saying that 10 times in a row.) Thankfully, Greg Storey wrote this invigorating post that encourages us to move forward by not obsessing over every detail. We like it! We like it!
Let’s do the internet scroll!
During some recent planning for a client's site redesign, we’ve been scouring the internet for well-designed long scrolling, art-directed pages.
Pitchfork’s feature on Daft Punk and ESPN’s on Dock Ellis has us doing cartwheels! Or perhaps it’s really a quick twirl at our desks. Regardless, we love the way each site integrates content with custom fonts, photos and illustrations to create a user experience that complements the text.
