Dooce Does Design

Once an underpaid web designer, now resigned to her role as an ace Layer Tennis commentator, Heather Armstrong also sometimes manages to crank out a sentence or two on Dooce, a blog you’ve probably never heard of.

Dooce recently underwent a redesign, which Armstrong has explained in much detail. But our ears perked up at this part:

I wanted to start a Daily Style section, some place to store my thoughts and photographs on the design of things in everyday life. When brainstorming ways to incorporate that into the site it made sense to make it a feature like the Daily Photo and Daily Chuck, mainly because I wanted it to include a photograph I’d taken of the object myself to emphasize the fact that these are things I use, these are things in my home.


Dooce Style
has all the ingredients for a wildly popular design blog: luscious, unapologetic photography, links to buy things, and Armstrong’s hearty endorsement (endoocement?)—which might actually be the only thing that this design blog really needs.

Bantjes Trumps Vit In Layer Tennis With Obvious King vs. Riggs Overtones

There’s no asterisk affixed to her name just yet (denoting a win), but from a quick swing through the forums, it appears as though the victor in this week’s historic inter-Speak Up league Battle of the Sexes Layer Tennis match is one Marian Bantjes. Playing exclusively in Illustrator (an obvious advantage for the vectorous one) Bantjes paddled Armin Vit‘s behind through a series of imagery evoking tennis balls, butterflies and Britney Spears.

You can scroll through each artful volley and read play-by-play by Heather Armstrong to see proof that this match was definitely one for the ladies. Actually, we didn’t see much of a contest at all; Bantjes kicked major layer ass.
