“A website doesn’t always need a lot of design elements to be considered good. Sometimes great typography alone can get the job done. This article is a showcase of designs that fall into that category. With these sites you won’t see a lot of textures, color, or imagery, but instead a focus on type and layout….”
“Self-regulation as a way of solving all problems is finished. Laissez-faire is finished. The all-powerful market that always knows best is finished.”—Nicolas Sarkozy, during a speech in Toulon, France
Caveat up front: we can’t pay a lot, and for that, I am deeply sorry. But we will work out some compensation, and we’d love to establish a relationship going forward that could turn into something more. It’s like dating. Try ‘em out for a bit: see if you like us, see if we like you, then maybe we’ll get serious and you can meet our parents and shit.
no, it’s not really like dating at all.
it’s more like you’re paying for someone’s skill (that they’ve already invested a lot of time in) and their additional time spent doing your shit instead of say, having fun or doing their own shit.
it may be like dating for you, but it’s like business for us.
Well said. I get tired of people acting like graphic designers have so much to prove. I get that sort of thing a lot.
…Ooooh that’s right. I forgot that the people who make Tumblr are COMPLETELY DEAF AND ARE TRYING TO DEAFEN THE REST OF US OUT OF SPITE!!!
I want to punch my computer every time I turn on a song in the Tumblr dashboard and it starts playing at like 7000% volume IN MY BOSE HEADPHONES. Nothing like the soft ear-encompassing comfort to hold in all that piercingly loud, ear-drum-slashing sound!!!
(And lest you think it’s MY fault… my system volume on my Mac is at 50%. HALF. All other sounds are at a perfectly normal and comfortable level.)
Seriously, you guys, this is ridiculous. Can’t you be a little nicer and make it like 75%….50%?? Or I have an idea… how about give us a teensy tiny little invention used on nearly ALL other music players on the whole bloody internet… A VOLUME ADJUSTER.
If I could make an audio bomb and send it straight through to their ears at ultimate brain-bleed volume, I would.
