I rang in the New Year by working up many variations of the “star” or “like” icon so people can bookmark projects they want to come back to, but I hated all the versions I came up with. To take a break from it all, I did get a chance to sneak up to the roof of my apartment building with my beautiful (and courageous) wife to watch the fireworks in the San Francisco Bay. This amazing photo captures it best (not my own photography, and definitely not the view we have!)
Today, I’m continuing work on the star icon, and I had a breakthrough. I simplified the design down and used a the metaphor of dog-earring a page in a book. I ran it by Ravi–who is generally also awake at all ungodly hours–and we have a clear winner!
