Braun Kofferempfänger T220 Designed by Dieter Rams

Look what I got hold of. It’s one of the classic Braun transistor radios from the early 60s, the T220 model, blue version.

Designed by legendary industry designer Dieter Rams, this item is fully working and in great condition.

If you are a designer or interested in good design you probably have already heard about Rams and his 10 principles for good design. If not, here is a good link for that.

Found the right spot for my CSS Winner Certificate

CSS Winner liked this site so much that they gave me a star for it.

“It’s our pleasure to inform you that your website has been qualified to be a part of CSS Winner’s STAR category. This also means that you’re one step ahead of nominees. The selection was done based on the submitted website’s design, usability, content as well as functionality.”

So, thank you CSS Winner. It feels good to be a winner and I have already found the right spot for my new certificate. :)

My website was nominated for CSS Winner

My webdesign for Fogelberg.com was nominated for CSS Winner of the day, 10th of January 2019.

I didn’t win that day, which I didn’t expect to really. It’s not that I don’t believe in my design.. I do, but I have always found that it’s usually harder to win the hearts and soul of everybody when doing edgier stuff (music, design, general art). A clean cut minimalistic fashion site will always attract more eyeballs. As will animations, no matter how UX-unfriendly they are, but that’s another story.

Anyway, I’m glad the people at CSS Winner appreciated and nominated my design. The current score of 7.4 is pretty good, I think, considering it’s just a site about me and stuff I like, basically.  I call the design style Fogelberg.com Outrun Glitch, for the heavy use of the colors blue, purple and cyan combined with glitchty and noisy elements.
