Meyrin: CERN Terminal Font
As part of the lime-mode browser hack day at CERN, we tried to simulate the original command line browser. As part of that task, we recreated the original terminal screen font.
Spimes: A Happy Birthday Story
Over a year ago, Mike Stenhouse and I wrote and pitched a small piece of design fiction around Spimes. We anchored the discussion around one man’s birthday. In the year since, we’ve flushed out the story a bit more, but it is also amazing how many of these gadgets now exist.
A single tactile calendar to keep the company in sync is a pipe dream no matter how beautiful it might be.
CERN: Line Mode Browser
CERN is that often overlooked organization which straddles the boarder between Switzerland and France. Home to some of the most complex and sensitive machines humans have ever built, CERN has an amazing amount of technology and smarts. We were there to help document and simulate just one of their small side-projects: The Web.
The office sink is so poorly designed, it triggered this article about everything that’s wrong with it, and how it can be improved.
Remember, if the you’re doing it wrong, it’s not always your fault. It was the job of the designer to build a product that was both easy to understand and easy to use. When that fails we tend to blame ourselves for being stupid. We should be appalled at the bad design that we accept on a daily basis. Not any longer!
