Noteworthy Links (Digital Design) for 2011-04-30

  • A post from iA’s Oliver Reichenstein on the debate between “Card Sharks” and “Holy Scrollers” over whether digital “pages” should scroll or flip. It causes me to remember that web navigation schemes are hypertext conventions conceived decades before the web and pads. The post provides essential context, commentary, and plain-old how-to information on when to “card” and when to “scroll”. Read it, as he intended, with the next entry.
  • A well-reasoned post on design and typography in digital media (web and pads). Khoi Vihn argues that multi-column layouts are more difficult to read in digital media, unlike in print. Better is a single scrolling column. Having seen the iPad edition of The Wall Street Journal, which is one of the better renditions of print layout in electronic media I’ve seen, I agree. This post via digital design pros at iA.
