Playing around with some comment styling this morning. Notes, I like it.
I like the edges of the cellotape, and the positioning, looks much better than if they we're perfectly placed on the corners - good work.
Certainly the 'in' thing in design just now, seen this type of thing pop up everywhere.
Will be a great resource on PP.
Nice work Orman. You seem to have created a great blend between vector and photographic here that makes it feel really relaxed. Colors are very pleasing as well though I wonder if the text and background have enough contrast to please the minimum web standards.
@JayTurn Do you have any information (links maybe) about minimum web standrads in relation to contrast? Might help out a few peeps.
@ormanclark Don't worry about it. It's fine The contrast is pretty legit.
@ormanclark Good thinking. Here is the link to the W3C page discussing the contrast minimums and why they are such.
There are heaps of options to check your ratio between foreground and background contrast which can be found by searching "contrast analyzer" in Google. The most popular one, and the one I use, is Contrast Analyzer. Simply download and run it from your desktop.
Hope this helps anyone unfamiliar with contrast standards across the web.
Looks absolutly fantastic, Orman.
Very very clean! The subtle shadows and subdued colors are awesome.
I'd love to see the rest of the site this would go with.. Is this just you playing around, or did you do this with a complete design in mind?
@hijavier Just playing around but it does give me an idea for something a little bigger
Very nice work! Aside from the contrast issue, there's only one thing that bugs me about it: why isn't the baseline of the type in the reply button aligned with the rest of the text?
@tisho Because it is aligned to the very middle of the name and time stamp
@ormanclark That makes sense to me, I think it would look odd if not. Great work @ormanclark as always
@ormanclark Yes, I can see that and I get what you were going for. It does break vertical rhythm, which is why it bugs me, I guess. I just did a quick mockup of what it would look like with the baseline of the button aligned with the timestamp and it does look better to me, so I guess it comes down to personal preference.
Any idea how a threaded conversation might look like?
Has a great natural feel, nicely done!
I have a suggestion! I think that, since it's taped up, it might look better with just one corner lifted (like Dribble shots) instead of both corners. Have you played around with that?
I love it!
Great job! But you should try another version with a used look ;)
Great colour use for the background paper!
