from time to time i'm checking on awarded websites. Just because i'm curious and i'd like to know what they do so the design world feel they should be awarded.

I don't get it. This website ( http://norgram.co/ ) has...one thing. a laggy scroll mechanism. unreadble text. (micro mini grey) A rather boring Typo and...distraction.
while you try to consume the focused content there is something animated on your left.

one more time I'm learning, I'm a good designer with decent values. And I will never earn an Award cause I want websites to be useful.
We are the Design Director duo of internationally recognized and awarded designers Sebastian Gram & Mathias Høst Normark.

Google was doing a Data performance talk at the IO. How to optimize. Which is one of the most important topics in my opinion. We do suffer from needless and careless traffik. ( https://youtu.be/aqvz5Oqs238?list=PLOU2XLYxmsILe6_eGvDN3GyiodoV3qNSC )

On the other hand, there is very little initiative to make flif work. despite the fact flif is already working. unspecific bla bla bla. Gosh this would make me incredibly angry. There is a great opportunity for a mobile friendly and slim image format. With a great idea.

Star this "Feature request" it if you need it. Maybe then we get a Data sensitive image format.

Apple maps is more accurate and up to date than google maps is. I have noticed a lot of false data, wrong direction and display in google maps lately. alternetive is apple maps or here we go. recently i'm using osmand too.

I've heard similar comments from colleagues that Google Maps has gotten a lot worse recently.
On the weekend it gave me a travel suggestion where instead of switching lines at the main train station it wanted me to get off one stop early and then walk the rest of the way to the main train station.

image responsive request and best compression today, experience anyone? i need this - now O_O

FLIF is a responsive loading image format. You are able to implement it today with a little bit help from javascript. Based on your device it will render / request only the bytes you need. In addition it is far better compressed than other pixel formats such as .png

Responsive design desperatly needs a simple image solution. We need image formats to get a more data sensitive environment on the web. please.

I have spend 2 hours, understanding how jekyll is handling a date format (string) and while i was doing that i have learned 20 fixes. Some of them 5 years old, some of them just a year. There is zero documentation. A closed issue which says...yeha we should document that. And its still not working.

learning to code is one thing. Practice is another thing. Allthough i like coding i think we could change the world if we invent another way of code documentation. Tonns of hours are spend on stack overflow answering obvious questions. Hours are spend on Github to write issues. And maybe there is a fix. Maybe its merged.

doesn't help if your documentation isn't up to date and nobody knows about it.

Rooms are clean, and good to be in. I did not appreciated having my booked double bed changed into two children small beds. I'm a small Woman but I do not appreciate a childrens bed. Ask before you take the room.

Also, eigentlich soll man ja die kleinen Läden unterstützen. Mein Hercules Trekking Fahrrad ist nichts besonderes aber nachdem ich mit zwei kleinen Läden so dermaßen schlecht beraten wurde und die Inspektion plus Gangschaltung einstellen 4mal teurer war um dann auch noch nach 2 wochen gar nicht mehr zu gehen... ...da geh ich jetzt immer wieder zu stadler. Mein eher bescheidenes Rad wird dort regelmäßig gewartet, die Beratung ist sehr gut und transparent die Mitarbeiter seit Jahren die selben. Wer sein Rad sauber hinbringt tut dem Mechaniker einen gefallen und wird nicht nur freundlich bedient sondern auch zügig, termingerecht und zuverlässig.
