I’ve helped Ole Gunnar Gundersen a lot with his music project Subshine.

The music is great and he needed also a great site to show it of.

Here you find the music videos, tour dates and more.

Conductor of Light product showcase

Conductor of Light product showcase

As a further development of the Conductor of Light brand and webstore we created a new product show case.

The reflective tweed button is a new type of product, and unusual in its product segment. Typically a reflector is a piece of plastic, Conductor of Light is a more little piece of jewelry of fabric and reflective thread, with a sensible function. To help understand what the product is, and to give a sense and felling, usage and function, it needs a good presentation.

Every colour has now it's own identifier that communicate a feeling. Gentle grey is a rainy grey day in a Norwegian fjord, Vibrant Yellow is the strong winter sun at the top of a mountain, Blueberry blue is a succulent blueberries, Forest Green is a autumn foggy pine forest, striking red is the warm red sunset and Perfect plum is some ripe plums ready to be eaten :)

The identity is a combination of British Tweed culture, Norwegian weather and light, and the autumn/winter season.

Why you should stop using Chrome!

 

Over a couple of weeks I have tried to fix an image problem. All the images I uploaded to a site looked really blurry on Chrome. Of course this post can be out of date any day, but February 2018 this is relevant :)

Chromes doesn't handle image scaling very well. These days with responsive design, we design sites with percentages, will sites and images be shown in many different sizes. It's crucial that everything looks good on any platform.

 
 

Firefox 58 and Internet Explorer 11 (haven't tried on Edge or Opera), look like expected, small size thumbnail images is crispy clear.

But Chromes result looks out of focus and horrible. Yes, this can be seen as nitpicking, but as shown in the picture above you can see the difference clearly.

And weirdly enough theres is an easy fix, and why this isn't standard on Chrome beats me.

To gain a better result, add this code to you CSS:

image-rendering: -webkit-optimize-contrast
 
 

Since most sites don't have this image-rendering CSS added to their site, you are guaranteed that the web looks worse on Chrome. Use Firefox! :) Images in Firefox are even sharper than the image-rendering enhancement.

 

Here I flip between Firefox, IE 11, Chrome and Firefox

PS: I have nothing to do with firefox, I only want you to have the best web-experience possible :)
