Love the new layout layout, Alex. It's great and easy to find what your after. The new messaging and comment features are a really and asset, especially with all the layout options (which I haven't tried yet).
I'm also glad you went back to the more conventional ad system rather than the initial spash screen.
Great job to the entire team who put this together!
I couldn't agree more. I am so happy with the look and feel of the new DesignNews.com and look forward to interacting with our engineering community on a higher level. Thank you to everyone that helped make this new site a success!
Alex, I agree with all of the posts below. The new layout is much cleaner and makes reading the content easier on the eye. I also like the new menu links which seem to streamline the navigation process of the site as well.
At the risk of being castigated by several sections of the design community, why do we still have cans of corned beef that need a key to open them....? I'ts not like it's a new development in the marketplace.... the original tin was developed for Napoleons army - and was made out of Lead.... It was only about 10 years later that the can opener was invented. And yet 150 years later, we still have to insert a little snap off key into a tab, and wind it around the circumference of the recepticle..... is this a purely European and African thing, or is it also applicable to the U.S.?
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
