Uncovering the true "face" of Perl

Following on the last post about Prettier Perl Web sites and taking Sebastian Riedel's Don’t explain what you think would look better, just make a mockup and show us! challenge to heart, I spent some time looking at Perl's existing design patterns. Specifically, I wanted to take a closer look at two established Perl brands and to expose the underlying elements of their design consistency; the typography, colours, and so on. The two I chose -- because they look like they were developed by…

Is "crowdsourcing" the new "design by committee"?

While asking for input on the New Internationalist redesign process the other day, one of my friends replied (in jest) “Is ‘crowdsourcing’ the new ‘design by committee’?” It got me thinking about why I’m excited by open and transparent design processes, and how concepts like crowdsourcing are exactly the opposite of design by committee. (Well, sometimes.) For me, the excitement stems from a passion for learning.…
