“this looks too sweet, it’s making me feel a bit sick”

This is the first time I really started to feel proud of my app design because everything just seemed to be coming together and the app was beginning to look really fresh and professional. I had decided that a minimal, geometric design, with clear and clean typography was the way to go. So this is when I really started finalising my designs and where I tried to make the app more interactive and fun to use. Instead of having lots of text like a book, I began creating screens that had sliders and buttons and felt lively, not just a static design full of useless information. I mean this app is suppose to make your life easier, so should’t it reflect that in the design? I decided to go for a circular, bubbly theme because it expressed the feeling of activity and circles are enticising for your fingers to tap, so basically I created screens that were exciting and fun to use. I started mocking up app screens on InDesign, and created quite a few pages when my lecturer said the colour scheme was wrong and needed evaluating. DAMN. But to be honest, looking back I completely agree, I think his exact words were “this looks too sweet, it’s making me feel a bit sick”. HAHAHAHA ruthless, but so true. Taking all feedback on board, I then started looking for new colour schemes.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about
    switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard
    to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say that you’ve done a great job with this. In addition,
    the blog loads very quick for me on Firefox. Excellent Blog!

    When I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new
    comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is
    added I receive 4 emails with the same comment.

    Perhaps there is a means you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
