if not a contest... then how about...
1. make it metro flat. (everywhere - no fades on buttons no 3d etc)
2. make every color customizable in user profile (nav bar / bg back etc - all fonts - colours = there is no design - it is the USERS design
3. lose the 3d 9 guy (for now) we need flat 9 guy. (for now) use the one i signed away to ms in code for fun - it is metro flat - make it available to overlay as white transparent - or black transparent - that should cover most needs
4. layout - fine - keep same
5. thread views: add them BACK! :P
functionality has changed but -
... the look is the same
why not a C9 member contest: " Suggest a new look for c9" thing
everyone can participate "post your screenshots - or site URLS"
all ideas welcome - not to be judged on level of expertise - but - idea over all
but the point was that squares are boring. (wilma - square in air )
some circles are made up of triangles... do those circles count?
how much should we count? should we count in Excel? in boxes?
they are functional and efficient.
if i HAD to live by that logic i would at least start hoping the new metro was 3d boxes - like in the Zero Theorm ;P
SEE it if you havent all niners!
delve and cortana may = "Her" but you want the ui to be gilliam! :P
edit: Her - what a STUPID name and poster for a really good sci-fi flick
I thought it was a chick flick ( with the moustache dude red poster etc
the poster should have been that one shot of the UI - HER
box office x 100
just like all my tv shows and movies... err..
you no it is funny tho
there are 2 solutions - but the industry wont do either
one is product placement on steroids. (there are no commercials - the products are embedded. Characters talking in front of Subway with posters in window. etc. Blurring them will only make the show look bad. they will stay in.no-one will bother
the other is content protectionism = internet costs (for us) - quadrupled as communication providers try to pull their own "netflix's" and pay for "new created content" (which they will pretend to do but really its just a price grab
( they do this sort of now in canada - its called the blank media tax)
none of your circle examples are from MS
so if you want one - they had a mobile bee hive honey comb UI - which was circular
it was interesting
too bad the squares won (literally)
EDIT: i just googled trying to find what im refering too... couldnt figure out what to type... anyone here remember it?
i think it was a Windows mobile UI demo? or something?
*and honey combs would indeed stack into a circle
edit - its obvious why they didnt do it though - they didnt want to be the BEE company
so while they would stack - and fit together - they were dumped for ... squares and rectangles.
Fine. But if i want to waste the space on my huge monitor - to have circles - give them to me
