Technology: June 2010 Archives
Over at Information Architecture, web designer Oliver Reichenstein has a beef with the new Wired iPad app, and lays out his critique in granular detail. His focus in on the format grid and typography, and he comes down hard on the overall product: "The future of journalism is definitely not a stack of banners spiced with videos, exported from a paper layout program." He also makes room for responses from typographer Jonathan Hoefler and New York Times Online creative director Khoi Vinh. It's a pointed, provocative post that is essential reading.
Meanwhile, over at Mario Garcia's blog, they're running a daily post with lots of links and examples of iPad design and apps. It's a run up for The Power of Tablets seminar, but there's deep learning for all regardless of whether or not you're attending.
