Don't Screw This Up: Legibility
 
It doesn't matter how good your photos are, how attractive your layout is or how powerful your message is if people can't read what your website says. This should be a no-brainer, but apparently it's not. 
 
Much of what Colm is referencing in this article is simply a lack of attention to contrast. It's one of the more difficult design concepts to teach but still a fundamental that cannot be overlooked. I spent a lot of time attempting to communicate it in my post titled How to Create Visual Content That doesn't Suck (dustn.tv/visual-content-design/). 
 
As pointed out in this article, even the biggest brands in the world, with an army of designers can flub on this one. Don't be like them. Get your message read. 
 
#design #contrast
When creating a website, there’s a mental checklist a designer might run through… is this engaging?, is it easy to under…

A great one by +Mike Elgan.

I started using the Photos app day one and I'm loving it. Google Plus photos and auto awesome was already impressing me... This has been another level better.
 
Why you want Google Photos!

(Read my full review: http://goo.gl/9BsDjT )

We all love to take pictures. Smartphones make it easy.

Because it's so easy to take pictures, we take a lot of them. (I personally have more than 80,000 photos and videos which take up more than 215 gigabytes of space.)

That's when the fun ends and the hassle begins. The truth is that managing, sharing and editing photos is harder than it should be. Most of us lost control of our photo collections long ago.

Labeling, tagging and organizing photos is difficult and time-consuming. But if you don't do all of those things, can be hard to find a specific photo.

Pictures are inconvenient to share, too -- especially when people are scattered across different social networks. (And there's always that odd relative who isn't on any of the social networks.)

Editing pictures can be difficult and time-consuming. It's also tediously labor-intensive to do creative things with pictures.

And at some point, all those photos can max out the storage on our phones. Yet we hesitate to delete them because we're afraid of accidentally getting rid of pictures we want to keep.

The only product or service that solves each and every one of those problems is Google Photos, which Google announced Thursday at its Google I/O developers conference.

Here's why I think you'll switch to Google Photos:

True. True. When I first saw it there were far fewer views.

And I'm usually late noticing these things.

Hi.  I wish I could change my custom URL.  But since it looks like we can't do that, I created a new page.  Won't you follow me over there while I transition?
I think this is the URL.  I'll update with a custom one when it's elligible.

It's 11:11pm right now and I'm making coffee - mostly for the process of it this time.

Trying to make the best French press each time.

50% of coffee for me is the smell. Taste, coffee shops and process usually share varying amounts of the other 50%.

How about you?

+Ethan Hilo Morgan I'm the same way. My favorite part of brewing is pouring the hot water into the freshly ground beans. Love the smell of the steam as it rises. :D

Just though I'd say good morning coffee lovers. I got this coffee as a birthday gift from Misha's in Alexandria VA. Quite delicious.
