Friday links: design, development, usability and more
This is the first entry in a semi-regular series sharing things that we’ve been looking at and reading recently …
Sarah (one of our project managers)
Sue (one of our designers, recently returned from a break in the sunny northern hemisphere)
- Eye-candy and inspiration on www.citid.net
- Great experimental fonts (also: free!)
- Lighten up your winter blues: heaps of colour and shapes on Coolhunter
Alastair (one of our developers)
- Firefox 4 introduces more HTML 5 and CSS functionality. One step further towards the death of Flash? Still in beta so one for the developers.
- Excellent! Wayne and Garth spotted in the UK. Party on!
Rachel (our office manager)
- World Cup 2010 statistics: all the key data for each team, from the Guardian
(Rachel notes that she’s not as much of a sports fiend as the above link might suggest, and also recommends data/infographic blog Cool Infographics)

- David Gillis on Fusing Content Strategy with Design, in UX Magazine
- The Real Life Social Network, slides from a presentation by Paul Adams, Senior User Experience Researcher at Google
