On 72 dpi…

So I’ve been reading this book called 72 dpi which contains some of the most startling pieces of web design work that I’ve ever seen plus a considerable amount of commentary which is slamming the conventions of user interface design (most notably the left-navigation or tab-based models that many sites operate with).

I’m not going to comment on the apparent sterility of corporate user interface design because I think there is a substantial case to be made for systems to be usability tested and to follow a few conventions of the medium as is rather than as it will be. But there is always a case for work that inspires you to challenge convention. So here are some of my picks from the book.
