Fuzzy Finds: Oct. 29 – Nov. 2

Welcome to Fuzzy Finds, a weekly feature where we’ll share the things we’ve been emailing each other about and discussing at the lunch table. Want to share something awesome with us? Hit us up @FuzzyMath.

Designing for Everyone Yields Bland Results / UIE

“When we try to design for everyone, we end up producing the design equivalent of an institutional cafeteria – producing bland results that aren’t interesting to anyone.”

Hoverstates / Chambers Judd

Neat gallery of innovative hover interactions. Especially like the use of animated GIFs as the showcase.

Skeu It!

Poking fun at all things bound in virtual leather, stitched with pixelated thread, or printed on paper-textured DIVs. Or, as is often the case, all three at once.

Wind Map / Hint.FM

An old (in internet years) favorite, particularly fascinating this week with Superstorm Sandy.

A History of the United States Congress Partisan and Ideological Makeup / xkcd

Amazing visualization of congressional partison/idealogical make-up. Things look pretty quiet until the “chaos” bubble. For more xkcd, be sure to also check out The Atlantic’s interview with creator Randall Munroe.

CTA O Scale L Layout

Building a scale model of Chicago’s L system, complete with ads, rust, and appropriate CTA signage.
